April showers definitely started off Megan and Adam’s wedding weekend with a bang! One month prior to their ceremony, the couple buried a bottle of bourbon upside down in our lawn, and unfortunately, this Southern
tradition did not hold off the rain. The tradition says if you bury the bourbon one month prior to your event,
all bad weather will go away. However, with such sweet spirits, the couple chose to host their event completely indoors and their outdoor ceremony turned into an intimate barn wedding with close family and friends.
Only one time prior to this event have we had to “flip” the venue due to weather, but being able to put up the arch their families had built was a lovely touch framed in our barn doors with the green lawn behind it. Gussie’s Flowers of Madison, Georgia added flowers cascading down the arch bringing in even more color to the pretty in pink room.
Even with the change of location, wedding photographers Ben and Colleen captured the essence of Megan and Adam’s big day by capturing the essence of Megan and Adam – pure, unconditional love.
Once the ceremony had ended and the tables were set, guests enjoyed a delicious spread from Georgia Bob’s BBQ out of Milledgeville, Georgia. Guests were then witness to many heartfelt toasts from friends of the bride and groom – further proof of how strong a love they have for one another and those around them. When it was time for cake, we were able to see just how strong their relationships were with their families by gazing at the heirloom topper resting on their cake from Baby Cakes Bakery out of Porterdale, Georgia or glancing at Megan’s mother’s wedding dress hanging as part of the decor. When the traditions were completed, guests enjoyed getting down on the
dance floor with music and entertainment led by DJ Dax Martin.
Our favorite part of the night was knowing no matter how many times we looked at Megan and Adam we would always catch them grinning ear to ear because this truly was the “best day ever.”
