Alex + Mark

This wedding could not be more perfect; a venue that most brides dream of, an incredible ensemble of vendors, amazing family and friends, and this couple!?! Alex + Mark just radiate love, and The Reason's photos captured their tenderness so well. We have to be honest though, this day was far from "ideal." It rained consistently, from start to finish, and just about every moment in between, on the day of Alex + Mark's wedding. But you would have never known! Spirits were high, love was in the air, and everything came together perfectly for one of the most epic and awe inspiring weddings in SIMB's history.

The views from Walnut Hill Farm, a renovated llama farm in Dalton... we're not sure it gets better!  Despite being saturated, there is no denying this venue is ridiculously beautiful, and from the ceremony to cocktail hour, to dinner and the reception, Walnut Hill Farm was an idyllic spot for this large celebration. If the views weren't enough to take a guest's breath away, the floral designs by Amy Osaba were sure to do the job. Romantic garden roses, ranunculuses, peonies and tons of garland for centerpieces and bouquets had us swooning, and the gorgeous alter piece made us weak in the knees. It's never a surprise that the ladies of AO bring the heat, but really, sometimes we are still in awe of the beauty they create.
Goodwin Events provided farm tables and, our new favorites, the cross-back vineyard chairs, for the reception space under bistro lit tents outside and in the converted barn. Lounge furniture and the wedding party's upholstered chairs were brought in by Settee to make the space extra luxurious. And Yes Ma'am created the menu cards at each place setting. Seriously, the line up of vendors just keeps getting better and better!
Alex + Mark opted for a seated and served dinner for their 350 guests, after providing a delicious array of butler passed hors d'ouevres, including some of our classics like fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese and Moroccan lamb meatballs with a mint + mango chutney. Dinner featured a tri-protein plate: our zinfandel and rosemary marinated filet with a gorgonzola sauce, blood orange and honey glazed red snapper and grilled free range chicken breast served with parmesan spiked mashed potatoes and a seasonal succotash drizzled with a maple glaze and sea salt. After dinner, it was time for Alex + Mark to cut their stunning and scrumptious cake from Gabriel's, and get on the dance floor.
Such an unforgettable night! And really we owe it all to Nancy of No Regrets Events. When Nancy introduced us to Alex + Mark and their families, we knew we had to be a part of this celebration, were over the moon when they selected SIMB as their caterer. She made sure every step of the planning process was smooth and seamless, and the day of the wedding, despite the downpours, everyone was calm and collected with Nancy at the wheel. We know this is only the start of a great partnership which is sure to bring you many more knockout weddings. Stay tuned! 
We are speechless, well okay not speechless, but pretty darn floored,with every image The Reason produced, and could spend days staring at our computer screens reliving Alex + Mark's day. For more images of Alex + Mark's wedding, or to check out more of Chris + Allie's stunning shots, go here.
Congratulations to this delightful couple, and their fantastic families. Wishing you all continued happiness and the very best!
