The Day - Fall Beauty
For the first BT Bridal Profile of the Year, we'll let the bride speak for herself to get us started:
"Our wedding was outside in a shelter at Stone Mountain. It was a very small, simple wedding with only a few friends and family attending, maybe 50 people. Our theme was very sentimental and also very rustic and every part of our wedding memorialized a passed family member in some way. I took my engagement pictures on my grandma's handmade quilt, my grandfather's watch was in my bouquet, my great uncle's deer horns were incorporated in the wedding, etc. My great uncle played his banjo and we had a gospel singer, and another banjo played the wedding march as I walked down the aisle. The wedding may not have been 100% perfect but it was definitely very family orientated."
The weather and gorgeous setting played their roles, but there were a couple of snafus on this special day. Hannah's wedding band was left behind in the car by the Best Man, so right before the preacher began, her aunt slipped Hannah her own band to use for the ceremony. But that was not all.
Hannah: "Everyone was late for the rehearsal dinner. The preacher couldn’t find the shelter/spot because he doesn’t travel to Stone Mountain often, my car overheated and upon putting water in it I lost the water cap (took us close to 45 minutes of crawling underneath the car to find it) and David was just late, because he’s David and he rode with the best man. Also, my maid of honor rode with me so we were all late."
This bride knew what she wanted and stuck with it. She told us that because her wedding was rustic, she wanted no poof, no sparkle, but plenty of lace, long sleeves and for the dress to be fitted. "I wanted something that was completely old-fashioned, not something that made me look like a princess."
Hannah: we think you looked AMAZING in your dress and we loved being a part of making your day special.
