Meghan and Michael’s beautiful Farm at High Shoals wedding is the perfect example of how adding a pop of bright color can not only be romantic, but absolutely mesmerizing! Mixed among the blush pink, mauve, and soft taupe tones of their color palette was the prettiest pop of bright burgundy that was gorgeous against the garden estate backdrop of their Athens Georgia wedding venue.
I love these two and their easy, laidback natures. They were so excited to celebrate with their guests and couldn’t wait for the party to start on the dance floor! Their posse of bridesmaids and groomsmen kept them laughing all day, even when the skies started threatening another rain shower! Fortunately, the rain stayed away and gifted us with some gorgeously perfect weather for this vibrant Athens Georgia wedding day.
Other than seeing Meghan and Michael of course, one of the things I was most excited for on their wedding day was getting to see their darling pet dog, Penelope! I knew from our conversations that Penny was going to be their flowergirl – complete with a floral collar to wear – and I couldn’t wait to see her again after how cute she was at their garden engagement session! I think it’s safe to say that she loved every moment of being in the spotlight and hanging out with these beautiful girls!
These bridesmaids in their mismatched blush, taupe, mauve, and lilac dresses were a vision. Even Penelope the flowerdog was ready to smile for the camera!
Another nod to their darling fur-child, look who showed up on the cocktail napkins! The bride’s sister and beautiful Maid of Honor used a photo I took of Penny at their engagement session and had it turned into a custom illustration.
I think every guest can agree that the new trend of providing a late night snack during the reception is an AWESOME one! Meghan absolutely LOVES Taco Bell and their Dorito tacos, so it seemed only appropriate that they have dozens of tacos delivered for guests to enjoy while burning up the dance floor!
