Who's Wedding Is This??

Who's wedding is this? It's mine!! Jeff and I had our wedding in April of 07. It wasn't too fancy, but there were a few special details that I thought I'd share. Our wedding was held at a place called Anthony's Fine Dining (bottom right photo), in Atlanta. The neat thing about Anthony's was the history; you see, it's a restored antebellum mansion. Originally built in Wilkes County Georgia in 1797, it was spared by General Sherman because the lady of the house had a newborn baby. The house was eventually moved to Atlanta, brick by brick, but remains pretty much the same, complete with original oil paintings and everything. Some other details are: the box with the bow (middle left) was my handmade favor. Each box had a different quote about love on them and contained a Ghiradelli chocolate inside. The top picture is me running back down to the wine cellar, which is where our getting ready room was. The middle picture (of the flowers) was the bridesmaids bouquet, which also decorated the cake table during the reception. The bottom left photo shows the scrapbook which my mom made (and did a fantastic job too!) and the letters L-O-V-E. The letters were by far one of my favorite purchases. I got them at Restoration Hardware after last Christmas on sale. They soon found their way into my friends wedding and they now reside as some very fashionable decor in her dining room!

Hi! I love your blog...I have a wedding-ish blog as well:

I am the owner of a wedding florist (Oakes Fields in Colorado), and I post all my pictures and flower thoughts along with stuff about life in general. I was looking for a bunch of wedding blogs to try and make a group. If you like it, I could link to your page and yours to mine?

Let me know! Thanks!

I love the idea of using the restoration hardware letters for your scrapbook table. Absolutely beautiful! Please put up more photos when you get the chance!

Jennifer said...

Thanks for all your sweet comments. I promise to put up some more photos in the future.

Tara, the middle right photo was part of the wine cellar room in which we girls all got ready. It was had a lot of character, but was also very dark.

Jennifer, yep, we used a wonderful professional photographer, David Christensen at
