Halie has always been inspired by farms, horses, and being outside. When she and her now husband, Zach, started their venue search, they fortuitously found The Wright Farm, perfect for their winter Georgia barn wedding. The barn severed as both a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony (I cannot express how much I love barn backdrops, y’all!) and a stunning setting for their reception. Halie fell in love with her lace sleeved gown from The White Magnolia because it reminded her of the vintage styles from the 1800s, and it fit her wedding venue and style perfectly! Plus, I cannot stop sneaking peeks at each and every rustic inspired floral arrangement by Amanda Clayton Designs, which accent the blush, red, and orange palette in such a unique way.

Make sure to keep reading below for thoughtful advice from Halie (she notes having family and friends in the same place to celebrate felt magical!) as well as so many oh-so-lovely captures from Laura Barnes Photography!

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day? 

I read “The Knot Book of Wedding Lists” which was really helpful to me. It was easy to read and gave a lot of great advice. I also talked with my older friends who were already married about what they liked/disliked about their wedding. My vendors were also super helpful in giving advice and thought about what would work for my wedding.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding? 

I obviously wanted to work with people within my budget, but I also wanted to work with people who were professional and passionate about what they did.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?  

I grew up on a small farm and so an outdoor wedding was something that I have always wanted. I am also into horses, Little House on the Prairie, simplicity and just the outdoors. But I didn’t want my wedding to be sloppy, I wanted an elegant outdoor wedding. My dress was picked because I thought it was elegant and it gave me an 1800s vibe, and I loved that. I loved the Wright Farm Barn because it is beautiful in a simple kind of way, and that was precisely what I was looking for in a venue!

What was your favorite thing about your wedding? 

My favorite thing about my wedding, other than the fact that I got to marry my best friend (and my GORGEOUS flowers), was that all of our favorite people were together in one place. It was such a magical and surreal experience to have family and friends from all walks of life together in one place to eat and celebrate! We had so so much fun dancing and laughing and just having a good time with the people we love most.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

My best piece of advice is don’t be so concerned about the ‘wedding’, be more excited about the marriage. The wedding is one day of your life, it’s okay if not everything is perfect. Your marriage is forever, and focusing on spending the rest of your life with the one you love most is more important than if all the centerpieces matched.

Captured & Engaged – We Decided On Forever from Rad Red Creative

From the Captured & Engaged Team:

When we read Shainna and Evan’s story, we knew they were the ones! As Shainna would say, “ It isn’t everyday that a Jewish boy from Miami falls in love with a Guyanese girl from Long Island”, but on a typical Tuesday Shainna and Evan met, and they have been together ever since! So our team set on the goal to celebrate their love and engagement with an engagement party session titled “We Decided on Forever”.
 
“We Decided on Forever” is the second installment of the Captured and Engaged engagement giveaway series in which a team of well-respected wedding professionals in Central Florida capture the love story of a recently engaged couple by celebrating their engagement in a unique meaningful way.
 
Using dark moody tones, breathtaking florals, an eclectic arrangement of vintage furniture, a wine cellar setting with an incredible lighting design, our team created a dreamy backdrop for an intimate Engagement Party where Shainna and Evan celebrated with their friends.
 
A favorite highlight of the shoot was the Groomsmen cigar and whiskey lounge with so many gorgeous details expressing the eclectic and unique vibe of Shainna and Evan.

The mountains of Park City, were the perfect setting for Tina and Jesse’s intimate, romantic Utah wedding at the St. Regis Deer Valley. Using the surroundings as their inspiration, the couple opted for lush greenery and stems of beautiful florals to create an elegant, nature inspired design created by Tinge Floral. Tina’s soft, romantic bouquet filled with shades of peach, plum, and pink added the perfect pop of color to her gorgeous lace gown, and her First Look with Jesse is absolutely heart warming! We can’t wait for you to see everything captured by Pepper Nix Photography!

An ivy covered stone railing surrounding a beautiful courtyard was the perfect setting for today’s romantic, fairytale inspired wedding ideas. A neutral color palette of champagne and white created beautiful romance, while lush greenery and gold accents added a bit of whimsy to the design- the epitome of a fairytale if you ask me! A tablescape design with hanging florals and moss coupled with letterpress paper details and the most amazing escort display completed the look designed by Heather Benge Events, and we can’t wait for you to see everything captured by Eden Grey Photography!
