Lauren + Christian

Soaked in Southern charm, Lauren + Christian's wedding is one that we'll never forget. This was such a fun day, full of energy and picture perfect moments, and we're thrilled to share it with you today. Working with Simply Charming Socials on one of our first weddings together was an incredible experience, and set us up for a continued vendor-friendship that we've enjoyed for a long time now. Remember when we gushed about SCS in August? Well, here's further proof of their amazing abilities to tie together ideas, accents, and atmosphere to create a truly wonderful wedding.

Nestled away in Monroe, at Fair Weather Farms, Lauren + Christian's celebration was every ounce of perfection seen here, thanks to 35 Atlanta, and then some. This family owned and operated property is magical. Saying "I do" under a 200 year old oak tree, surrounded by rustic beauty and shimmering water, Lauren + Christian had the right idea. Throw in beautiful bouquets and stunning stems from Gardenia Floral, and you have your self a storybook wedding. Not to mention the Southern chicness of Lauren + Christian's wedding. The vintage rentals from 4 Inch Fold and preppy pink pops against burlap and seersucker were just darling!  
Before the ceremony, guests enjoyed fresh lemonade and fruit infused chilled water on the lawn, where they also nibbled on medjol dates wrapped in proscuitto with soft goat cheese, mini corn muffins topped with our notorious pimento cheese, and fried green tomatoes with horseradish sauce and caramelized onions, post ceremony. After collecting Lauren + Christian's custom made koozies, and a few cocktails, guests made their way inside the screened in pavilion. There they found our fried green tomato napoleon salad, with fresh goat cheese, smoked trout + wild rocket greens, drizzled with a green goddess dressing at each setting at 4 Inch Fold's farm tables. Lauren + Christian's buffet menu was made up of a balsamic glazed free range chicken breast with caramelized onions + fresh rosemary, grain mustard + aged balsamic roasted pork tenderloin, and fresh vegetables, including sautéed haricot vert with grape tomatoes and toasted pine nuts. Deeeee-lish. After dinner, whoopee pies from The Cookie Studio and lots of dancing were on the agenda, desserts and dancing... sign us up!
Pinch us, we must have been dreaming! 


Wendy + Chris

October is here already! Which just goes to show that time flies when you're having fun, because it doesn't seem too long ago that we were enjoying a spring wedding celebration in Piedmont Park for Wendy + Chris. Their ceremony was super sweet and sentimental, as their closest family and friends gazed at the happy couple with Lake Clara Meer in the background. There was something so special about being in the heart of Piedmont Park and Midtown Atlanta for this wedding. It's like the whole world was spinning right outside, but Wendy + Chris made time stand still. We just loved it, and we know you will too, so take a look at all the delicious details of Wendy + Chris's wedding, shot by the skilled Anna and Spencer Photography.  
After their dockside ceremony, Wendy + Chris and their guests mingled on the lawn as our fried green tomatoes with horseradish sauce + caramelized onions, miniature grilled cheese sandwiches on brioche, and cocktails were served. Then guests moved inside the dockside visitor center to find rows of farm tables, sprinkled with candles and pretty pastel flowers from Holly Bryan Design. Wendy + Chris kept their menu casual and fun, featuring some of their favorite finger foods, including out pistachio + coconut chicken satay with lime + cilantro coulis, Alison's famous meatloaf sliders on buttery brioche rolls, and wild mushroom + gruyere crostini with fresh thyme. Their buffet menu also included a beautiful antipasto display, cumin + sriracha spiced chick pea hummus, and basil laced roasted salmon with lemongrass creme fraiche.   
For dessert, we provided Wendy + Chris with a dessert bar that will make your mouth water. Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing, raspberry + lemon parfaits with oatmeal crumbles, and a fruit + cheese display featuring strawberries, dates, and artisan cheeses. Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Chris has a blueberry pie "groom's cake" and a simple, but spectacular almond pound cake

It's no surprise that we were crazy about another wedding at one of the many Piedmont Park venues, and we are pleased as punch to have been a part of Wendy + Chris's wedding celebration. Here's to the happy couple!
