Wedding Wednesday

Ever since we got engaged at the end of July, we've been planning away. Since the Mr. and I have been dating for four years, we knew we wouldn't want a long engagement. And let's be honest, I had done quite a lot of research leading up to our engagement ;)  I was more than ready!

In fact, we took a tour of our venue only two days after we'd been engaged. This was the only venue I had in mind and it was perfect. It was the only place we looked. We decided to go with it!

After talking with the venue about possible dates, one month was totally booked and another too close to my birthday, so we settled on a date in which all the stars were aligning.

Ever since, the planning has been underway and I feel like the luckiest girl getting to marry the man of my dreams in a beautiful location.

Being a Georgia peach, I knew I wanted to get married in Georgia. However, I was not set on Atlanta and wanted a location that was close by for my Orlando friends as well.

Coastal Georgia is the gorgeous spot and towards the end of February is the big day. It is a beautiful time of year for the area and couldn't be more perfect for a romantic, elegant wedding.

I am so thankful for the support of my parents who have been there for me every step of the way and are working so hard to help me create a wonderful day for all involved. I am also so thankful for my amazing fiance!

You are a bride after my own heart! We had a long engagement, but I had almost everything done 10+ months out from the big day. When you know what you want, it makes things much easier!

The tasting was my husband's favorite part, bon appetite!
