Kari + Thor, St. Simons Island, GA | Wedding

Whew! October is absolutely flying by! I can't believe that it's already been a month since Kari and Thor's amazing St. Simon's Island wedding. I am so excited to share their photos with you! Mostly because when the preview of images went up on Facebook you all freaked out. Which is my favorite thing to happen. Their photos resonated with so many of you because in them you could see how laid-back and genuine this couple is.  Every minute of their wedding day was just so fun and romantic--nothing stressful or fake about it! I loved being a part of it, from beginning to end.  Kari and Thor had so many awesome people at their wedding and helping make their day as special as can be. 

So, now for the wedding! When I asked Kari about her wedding day she reminded me that it had been so rainy the week of the wedding. She said that, "when I woke up to sun shining and birds chirping on my wedding day, I knew that was God saying "alright, here we go!"

This wedding has so many sweet details that I wish I could be sitting right next to you saying "oh you'll love this!" or "did you see...?" but I can't so you'll just have to scroll slowly and notice all of the things. :) There are some really sweet gifts exchanged and a priceless first look between Kari and her brothers. So without any further ado, welcome to Kari and Thor's romantic, relaxed, Southern wedding day!

Their wedding ceremony was held at Lovely Lane Chapel on St. Simons Island. The picturesque setting was everything Kari could've asked for in a romantic, Southern wedding! But they brought their own laid back charm to the day by forgoing a wedding planner and making a few details themselves. The wooden sign displayed outside the chapel that they DIY'ed is going to be hanging up in their home later--such a great idea! 

And on to the reception! The Casino Building feels like you're outside which is exactly where you want to be on a late summer evening. It has the best views of the Pier and some really great acoustics for a live band playing all the best songs. Everyone was having a blast dancing to the Traveling Riverside Band and probably would've stayed all night long if they could've! :) 

Kari and Thor, thank you thank you thank you for including me in your beautiful wedding day! I had such a good time and am so grateful for you both. Wishing you all the best!
