Situated on a small college campus in Georgia, Toccoa Falls’ namesake waterfall fell from a drop of 186 feet. This couple begged for the opportunity to state their vows in front of the national preserve, and the persistence paid off. Lionhearted Events helped plan the couple’s dream day and Sara K Byrne captured the sweet moments.
The couple wanted a wedding to truly reflect them instead of being full of too many trends. They are wedding photographers so it was also easy to take away the best thing from each wedding they’ve photographed, as well as learn what not to do.
For the reception, an old warehouse was transformed into a visual celebration of the love between Halie + Alec, with sweet details and a band made up of Alec’s friends topped off the evening. The industrial warehouse set up a perfect contrast to the natural elements of the ceremony. Bud & Bloom created the floral masterpieces for the ladies and the reception. One of the couple’s favorite details was the chicken wire wall behind the cake table that was full of love notes from each other, polaroids from trips they’ve been on, and the engagement photos. They also used vintage cameras as part of the centerpieces. To add something from the strong musical aspect of Alec’s life, the couple put dried flower petals from the bride’s grandmother’s garden into a cone made from sheet music of the song the groom sang to her when he asked her to be his girlfriend.
The Rue De Seine dress and sheer top brought a soft, sweet romance. Don’t you just love the bride’s pink-hued hair?! The groom was wearing a grey suit with a burgundy tie and shoes and emerald socks.
