Lori & Gage

A blush and grey affair held at a southern bed and breakfast.  From the bride making the bud vase favors in her pottery studio, to the local farm flowers and the mismatched farm tables and chairs, this earthy wedding was so much fun to plan.

Leah & Jason

This perfect spring wedding was an intimate day held at an historic home, with the most delicate touches by the thoughtful bride.  A brunch wedding offered the perfect mix of delicious food and a laid back setting that guests loved.

Veronica & Adam

This post-Christmas wedding offered the perfect mix of greenery and gold sequins.  The elegance of the venue mixed with the joining of two families made for the perfect day.  Grandmothers of the couple also served as the flower girls in such a sweet display of legacy.  And who can turn down a little bit of sparkle?

Sylvia & Charlie

Sylvia and Charlie contacted me to coordinate their wedding while both were still stationed in Afghanistan.  Needless to say, it was an honor to be involved with this day.  Their love for each other overflowed into everyone’s hearts and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house over their beautiful ceremony.

Jessica & Mike

This couple chose a family and close friends only ceremony on the North Campus of University of Georgia, followed by a fun reception at an Athens favorite bar, Allgood.  The bride stunned in a custom made gold sequined gown, perfect for the incredible fall day.

Lorraine & Will

This awesome wedding combined things that the bride and groom really loved, in some unconventional ways.  Their beloved dog was their flower girl, they had custom corn hole boards with each of their alma maters, and a UGA stadium cake stole the show.

Laura & Brent

Getting married on a remote island in an old plantation home surrounded by Spanish moss is a dream for most, but reality for this incredible wedding.  Laura planned a perfect vintage wedding, including a chandelier she brought from home, her grandfather’s famous dessert, and wearing her mother’s wedding dress.  Surrounded by family and close friends, Laura and Brent spent the entire weekend celebrating their love and joy on Sapelo Island.

Emily & Justin

An elegantly planned day featuring the Pantone color of the year was just the way for Emily and Justin to say I do.  All of the details, right down to the candy bar, made for such a fun filled event for everyone.  When a sisters walk together, hand in hand, down the aisle you know it’s going to be a great day!

Amber & Joseph

Amber and Joseph wed at an adorable inn situated in the mountains.  Amber outdid herself with tons of DIY details in bright red and yellow.  Joseph spent the day planning tiny surprises all over for Amber that were so sweet to watch.  These two created a magical weekend for everyone involved!

Honi & Eddie

This sweet couple was my very first wedding as Carry Your Heart Events.  Honi wanted to mix all of her favorite things; red, black, and polka dots.  I loved the bright and bold design that just matched perfectly with their outgoing personalities.

Danielle & Andrew

Danielle and Andrew had the perfect spring wedding, complete with a mini picnic before entering the reception!  Danielle’s dad travels for his job and collected candy from each place he went to make one heck of a candy bar.  This perfect brunch wedding was such a joy to be apart of.
