Alexandria and Travis were married at Old Hill Farms in Rock, Ga. on September 14. “It was just breath-taking,” Alexandria said. “We loved how peaceful and quiet it was.” The bride wore a taffeta ball gown with a pick up skirt, accessorized with an ivory sash and fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a white button-up shirt, gray vest, and brown suit pants, accessorized with a patterned tie. “My wedding day was more than I had ever dreamed of it being, so I always reflect back,” she said. “My favorite moment of the day was my soon-to-be husband’s reaction the first time he saw me in my wedding dress.” During the ceremony with 100 of their closest family and friends, the flower girls in tutus and floral headbands carried a “here comes the bride” sign down the aisle. The reception’s decorations were all handmade! From the burlap table runners, silverware holders, and yes, even the centerpieces. The newlyweds’ best advice? “Make the day as special as you are as a couple,” Alexandria said.
What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?
When I was planning my wedding, I lived out of state and actually booked the venue without seeing it in person! The Hazlehurst House is located in my hometown and after seeing the stunning pictures online of the garden wall, I knew that was where I was going to get married. Living out of state made it difficult to plan a wedding alone, so having a wedding planner included in the package made the planning process exciting and stress free!
Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?
Every bride wants to be beautiful on their big day, but it was also a must for me to have comfortable shoes and add a little bit of my own style! I choose to wear my favorite flats, TOMS. I was so comfortable the whole night!
Our guestbook. We had our guest sign the mattes of a picture frame with our wedding date in the middle. It’s special to see it hanging in our home and see all the love and support we receive from our friends and family on a daily basis.
Our wedding favors. We had sunglasses made with our names and wedding date on the side. During the reception, everyone was wearing their shades and dancing the night away. It was so fun!
Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.
By far, my favorite moment of the day was our first look! Alex and I were nervous/excited and wanted to have special time together before the ceremony to see each other. It was a moment I will never forget! It was such a personal and intimate time for us, and we loved being able to share alone time together before we said, “I Do!”
