This St. Simons Island wedding has been on the drafting table for a while now and I'm glad to finally share it with you! It takes place at the beautiful Sea Island's Avenue of the Oaks and is as romantic as it is timeless. Ancient oak trees, draped with moss; lots of vintage jewelry and heirlooms, bridesmaids in glittering shades of lilac. As Lauren describes, "We were going for a classic and timeless look that we could look back on years from now and not regret a thing. We tried to stay away from current fads when it came to our style." They absolutely achieved this from beginning to end and I so loved working with Ashley and Lauren. Wait till you see the photos, these two are a blast!
" Ashley and I were engaged for a year and a half, which gave us a LOT of time to consider, reconsider (and reconsider again) what we wanted our wedding day to be like. How it all turned out was better than we could have ever imagined. The boys played golf the morning of the wedding while the girls had mimosas and tea sandwiches in the dressing room. The ceremony venue was so naturally beautiful, we didn't need to do anything in terms of decor. It created the perfect scene for such a spiritual and romantic event. We lit a unity candle while our brother-in-law, Trent, sang with the string/flute trio which ended up being a very special moment during the ceremony. Our reception was so much fun!! It was such a wonderful feeling to be surrounded by loving friends and family, and to just let loose and have a good time. The band kept everyone on the dance floor all night...we never wanted it to end!"
This was one of my favorite weddings of 2015 and it's such a joy to see the photos all over again! I guess that's the upside of being way behind on blog posts ;) Ashley and Lauren we love you and wish you all the best!
