Clare + Kyle: Love in the Vineyard

Clare + Kyle: Love in the Vineyard

I grew up spending summers in the English countryside visiting family.  I’ve always been a sucker for rolling green hills, wedgewood blues and rustic elegance.  Kaya was the perfect venue for me to set this scene for my wedding.  I also knew that I wanted flowers, lots of flowers!  My florist did an amazing job at making every space at the wedding beautiful.

Jenna + Patrick: Love Trumps All

Jenna + Patrick: Love Trumps All

Dreamy moments and moments that have been dreamed of for years should be captured exquisitely like the ones below. You can almost hear the giggles, feel the love, smell the blooms and belong as a guest. We have gotten to know the art of Hilary Leah and her sweet Jeremiah over the years- they were actually one of our couples. Her captures are timeless, captivating and breathtaking. Here are a few from the love story of Jenna + Patrick that share a glimpse into their amazing day.

My advice to future brides would be to not leave your husband or wife’s side throughout the reception so that you both can share the same memories!

My favorite part of the day was getting ready at The Wheeler House with my bridesmaids and walking down the aisle and seeing my husband after not seeing him up until that point!
— Jenna, Patrick's bride

Jenna’s floral signature was a classic romantic gathering that reflected Jenna’s personality. It was a collection of both tradition, grace and whimsy. It was one of the most fragrant collections we can remember with it’s sweet White O Hara and Playa Blanca garden roses, double stock, lisianthus, dancing eucalyptus and exquisitely detailed antique hydrangea. It was finished with hand dyed silk in an eggshell blush. Her bestie squad had layers of blush, soft peach and cream garden roses, delicate garden spray roses, soft pink lisianthus, and antique hydrangea with spilling eucalyptus.

It’s now time for this groom to have a sweet moment with his bride. And be celebrated with their friends and family by their side. This was truly going to be a day to be celebrated with great joy and laughter.

This is truly a phenomenal setting. The Wheeler House is an incredibly beautiful property that feels as though you are stepping back into time. It is simply lovely. The outdoor ceremony area is a draped arbor. Jenna’s much anticipated walk to Patrick was perfectly framed by Miss Milly’s vintage doors to give a dramatic start to her path. It was spilling with textured greenery, dancing orchids. blush stock and garden spray roses. Not only did it serve as a welcoming entrance, but the guests enjoyed many photo opportunities throughout the evening with it framing their memories of the amazing celebration. It is one of our personal favorite pieces in their collection of pretties. And well, their desert table was oh, so sweet!

The day felt like it went in slow motion and light speed simultaneously. Looking back at all of the time, energy and stress that went into planning our day, the end result made it more than worth it.

Meredith + Stephen: You Had Me at Wahoo!

From the venue to the flowers - it was more than I could have ever dreamed. I really wanted to keep my wedding simple, neutral, and filled with lots of greenery, so getting married in a quaint garden room was the perfect backdrop.

Emily + David: Love in Dunaway Gardens

We’ve all heard of puppy love, but this is one sweet story of just that. David met Emily while walking on the Beltline. She said she was used to being stopped so people could love on her adorable dog, but this time she was stopped in her tracked when David asked her to lunch. He shared that it was her smile that he fell in love with.

Ashley + Zach: Sweet Love at Smithonia Farm

Ashley + Zach: Sweet Love at Smithonia Farm

We are often present when the First Look is taking place. It is actually one of our favorite moments for our couples. It is a time when the groom gets to see his bride for the first time without it being diluted by the guests. A time when sweet words can be shared. A time when the groom can have a glimpse of his bride, and when she gets to the aisle to walk to him, his thoughts can be, "wait until you see my bride, she is breathtaking!" But this day was different. Claire Diana (another favorite friendor) came to us as we were about to leave. She shared with us that Ashley had a surprise for us and requested that we wait where we were.....Ashley as exquisite as ever, blessed us with a vendor first look! We were all incredibly honored and overjoyed. (let's just say we were not picture perfect after installing the ceremony, but the moment was!) Next up, the reveal for her besties and her GROOM!
