Katelin & Adam said I do with such a gorgeous industrial chic wedding day at Chateau Elan . They did an excellent job of incorporating the natural beauty, softness, and organic feel of the vineyard alongside the more industrial look they created for their reception. The bride’s background in fashion provided a major source of inspiration in the design of the couple’s wedding day, and we just love how the balance of details came together (You are seriously going to love the large boxwood wall that served as a major focal point of their reception!).
From the bold industrial details of the reception, to the soft florals of the ceremony, to beautiful sunset portraits, and even some after ceremony puppy kisses (courtesy of Flynn, the couple’s fur baby/ring bearer), Lauren Carnes Photography didn’t miss a moment in capturing all of the details of their day.
Katelin and Adam worked alongside Suzanne of We Tie the Knots to create an atmosphere that welcome guests from all over the nation to the outskirts of their hometown of Atlanta, GA. Each table “number” featured important places in the couple’s life together.
“Growing up in Atlanta, attending college in Auburn and now living in NYC was all reflected in our day. Each part of our story is important to us and we wanted our guests to feel the same love and happiness that we have had at each stage in our lives,” Katelin said. “With my study in colors and design, I have always loved different types of metals and textures – so this was big when we were deciding everything for the reception. From the custom boxwood wall installation, to the tables, to the branch wall behind the bar and all the wood in between.”
So what advice does Katelin have to pass along to future brides?
To relax. You are the only one that will know if something is off or a minor detail is missing and there is no point in trying to fix it the day of or stressing about it! Enjoy every minute and take time to step back and appreciate all the love and support from everyone. It goes by so fast. Anything can happen that throws you off – whether it be bug bites or a red wine spill on your gown, BUT you are marrying the love of your life and it is absolutely the best day of your lives, have fun!!!”
We think that is some pretty solid advice!
What a beautiful day of celebration, and we are so honored that Katelin and Adam were willing to share their day with us.
