Spring Wedding in Georgia | Natural beauty and details
To us, each wedding hosted at Pepper Sprout Barn is unique and memorable. In the course of the year getting to work with a couple and watch them grow together as they plan their big day truly does create a bond. When their wedding day finally arrives, you can’t help but feel attached and enamored with them.
Each wedding is as unique as the couple themselves. Sometimes the biggest memories come from the couple, other times it’s the connection with their families or friends or the new friendships we create with the vendors they chose. We truly have favorite and happy moments from every wedding we’ve been a part of.
I can honestly say that for Ronni and Jordan’s Spring wedding, it was all three elements. Add to that, their style and a perfect April day, it was a wedding we just had to add to the blog.
All eyes were on Ronni and Jordan and for good reason.
Not only are they a beautiful couple with a rich, genuine connection but they exude love in all they do. From the way they talk, hold hands, work together there is just a chemistry you cannot deny. The connection they have with each other transcends to those around them. Their family and friends were truly the kindest people who were so excited to be a part of their day, help in any way they could and were there for love and support in any way needed. When working weddings, it’s easy to recognize a cohesive group and they were the epitome.
The details of their day
Ronni’s natural beauty and style was weaved into all elements of her day. From her choice of bridesmaids dresses that were soft, subtle hues of pinks and taupes to the bouquets of lavender, from the Red Oak Lavender farm, their wedding was a true reflection of themselves. Ronni and Jordan are kind, understated people who show their grandness is actions and love, not materials or extravagance. It’s truly a remarkable trait.
Ronni’s dress was actually her mother’s, altered to fit her style. She walked barefoot down the aisle and her makeup, done by Makeup by Ashton was understated, highlighting her natural, all around beauty. Her hair, styled by one of her bridesmaids, was pulled back to feature her strapless dress with lace details and string of pearls and she had a bit of baby’s breath for accent. So pretty!
Jordan was dressed in a black suit and his guys coordinated with black vests, pants and a blush tie. Boutonnieres, matched the bouquets as they were twigs of lavender.
They had the most adorable ring bearer that held the cutest sign as he walked down the aisle adorned with hanging jars and baby’s breath. Because nature was at the core of them as a couple, they did a tree planting ceremony. We know for certain that tree was planted in love and will flourish for years and years to come, much like their marriage. Fabric draped in the tree waved in the soft breeze.
For their perfect Spring wedding, cocktail hour was outside as apps were passed by The Grand Gourmet. The apps were a hint of the great food that was to be served inside. The Grand Gourmet never disappoints with flavor or service.
Their reception was a continuation of natural elements and soft hues of pink. For each and every one of her tables, each covered in a blush linen, Ronni created a terrarium filled with succulents. Surrounding the terrarium that sat perched on a wood slab was a combination of our vases with single stem flowers and twigs of lavender. Another example of their kindness, they gave each and every terrarium away to their guests at the end of the night.
Their cake was adorable too! A layered naked cake topped with more succculents created by The Teapot Garden was accompanied by cookies for the guests.
After first dances and the most heartfelt toasts, friends and family danced the night away. Love, laughter and joy filled the evening. The night ended with a romantic & colorful light wand exit outside the barn doors.
Other than the Grand Gourmet & Josh Naylor (videographer), who we have the pleasure of working with on a regular basis, all of Ronni & Jordan’s other vendors were new to us. We love meeting new people and creating new vendor friendships. In particular, on this night, we had the absolute pleasure of working with Sydney of Sydney Renee Photography. Not only is she a super talented photographer (obvious by these pictures, right?!) but she is also the sweetest, most genuine person. From the minute we all met, we connected and to this day we continue to stay in touch & cheer each other on. We truly hope Sydney comes back to the barn soon!
Ronni and Jordan snuck away with Sydney for sunset shots. They saved most of their pictures for their personal collection and rightfully so but they were so kind to share some with us and as you can see, their love runs deep and taking a little time out of their reception to run through the hay fields and laugh in the golden light was truly a memory they will forever treasure. Thanks to Sydney and Josh Naylor who did videography for the night, it’s forever captured on film too.
Wondering if you should hire a videographer? We are on team “Yes, you should!”
but to find out why, read our recent blog post about it.
Ronni and Jordan’s wedding is a perfect example of why we built the barn. We want couples to come in and build a day that reflects the two of them. Their style and their love should be apparent in every detail and that was definitely the case on this April day.
