Snippet & Ink Select vendor Jeremy Harwell shared this gorgeous, elegant Atlanta wedding with us, and I just know you’ll love it – from the bride’s romantic gown to the delicious Southern menu, it’s full of inspiration!

“I incorporated the tradition of having something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue,” says Brittany. “My something old was my grandmother’s cross necklace that she gave me before she passed away. My something new was the earrings Jake gave me the day of the wedding as a gift. My something borrowed was my hair accessory/comb and my something blue was my garter.”

The bride on her favorite part of the day: “When the doors of the church opened and I saw Jake for the first time at the other end of the aisle. We had decided that we would not see each other before the ceremony the day of the wedding as we wanted to keep with tradition. I remember the day going by so fast but when the doors of the church sanctuary opened and I saw Jake for the first time, time seemed to stop for a minute. I remember that at that moment all of my nerves and anxiousness went away and it felt like it was only the two of us in the room. It was such an amazing moment and one I will never forget.”

The Southern menu included smoked sausage, chicken salad pinwheels, and pimento cheese on crackers for appetizers; barbecue pork, barbecue chicken, and burnt ends, mac and cheese, baked beans, and mini jalapeño corn muffins all served family style; wedding cake and banana pudding; plus a late night snack of smoked chicken wings. The signature drink was a watermelon margarita served in mason jars.

Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  When we moved to Atlanta we became members at Peachtree Road United Methodist Church and knew that we wanted the ceremony to take place in our new church home. For the reception, we considered several different locations but a friend had mentioned that we go look at Summerour and when we did we fell in love with it. We knew that it would provide the perfect atmosphere that we were looking for in our reception.

What was the best advice you received as a bride?  The best advice I received was from my mother who told me to enjoy every minute of the planning process even when it seems to be too much, because the day will be here and over before you know it. This helped me keep things in perspective and really soak in the months leading up to our wedding day.

What advice do you have for other brides?  The one thing I would say would be to try not to get stressed about the small details as they can get overwhelming. In the end, on your wedding day, you are so full of joy and it is such an exciting day that you will not even think twice about the small details. You cannot plan for everything that could go wrong, but on that day you won’t even notice if it does.

      Lovely with so many sweet details. Kudos to the team of vendors who put this together. Love that they chose an invitation with my Belluccia calligraphy font. It goes so well with the feel of the wedding.
