Katie & Andy {October Wedding at Carillon Beach}

Talk about sweet as pie… This Rock Spring, Georgia couple had the sweetest family around!  From the first day we met with Katie back in November 2008, I can remember her Southern charm and excitement to marry Andy.  The journey was so easy and pleasant, that we couldn’t wait for their colorful, Fall wedding!  From the first meeting with Nouveau, we knew that this wedding was going to be gorgeous!!  As soon as we started to set up the Village Green’s reception on the chilly, October afternoon, I knew this was going to be a wedding that we’d get noticed… and we did!  {see our BLOG}  Now you can see why we all felt this way…

Seeing pictures of Katie's dress never did it justice... when we saw it on the wedding day, we realized just how elegant it really was!

Katie chose to have a long, dramatic bouquet of brightly colored flowers. It was made to look like they were freshly-picked from her grandma's garden.

I fell in love with this picture the moment I saw it. The fall folliage was a beautiful backdrop for Katie's final moments of a single lady.

Picture-perfect details were found in every aspect of the ceremony. Beautiful purple and green hydrangea alongside neutral browns, really brought a rich, Southern feel to the Meeting House.

Good Ol’ Hank! Katie & Andy’s “baby,” an enormous Harlequin Great Dane, made his appearance at the ceremony.  Although he did not carry the rings, his doggy-wreath was large enough to adorn the front entrance!

You couldn't have found a happier couple in Carillon Beach this day!

Beautiful, vibrant flowers brought such a cheerful, lavish garden feel to the reception. Her linens were chosen to perfectly compliment the floral decor. Every table was named a sentimental street that has been important to Katie & Andy's blossoming relationship.

Katie chose to hang name tags as her escort cards. Each guest was able to find his/her name and table assignment by perusing the cleverly-arranged branches.

Another phenomenal cake by Rhonda of Confections on the Coast!

No guest could deny just how incredible the groom's "fishing boots" cake was! This cake was amazing, down to the very last detail! There were even edible rocks and a "brand stamp" on the bottom of the boots! The only thing not edible was the single-strand of fishing line!

The colorful chandelier looked even cooler as the sun started to set!

As the evening cooled down, guests enjoyed eating their delicious meals under the stars and mini-chandeliers that were strung overhead.

How glamorous!

Say cheese! A fun addition to Katie & Andy's wedding was a photobooth! The guests enjoyed leaving their mark in a signing/photo book that was left by the booth. We just adored this couple!
