Kaitlyn and Joshua were married on October 10th and in true 2020 fashion we battled a hurricane on their big day. #dangitdelta became our new moniker for their wedding. Everything was set outside at Fountainview Mansion in Auburn, Alabama and we did a lot of praying the rain away. Let’s take a moment and pause for the beauty of this venue.
This incredible venue didn’t need much to amplify its beauty, however we did put a mixed-greenery garland on the main entrance for guests. It was a subtle touch that made a grandiose impression.
Once inside, guests were greeted to a beautiful foyer with the guest book, programs and one of the most incredible staircases you will ever see!
To the right of the stairwell you could catch a glimpse of the most stunning wedding cake by Frosted Acres Bakery.
The grooms cake was pure artistry! A replica of Doak was just what he wanted!
Continuing out to the terrace on the way to the ceremony, guest would walk through the parlor where the cocktail hour would occur. Cocktail tables with soft velour tied with greenery allowed guests to mingle comfortably before the wedding started.
The ceremony took place outside with an arbor draped with white fabric and flowers in whites, soft pinks and blues.
The ceremony was conducted by the bride’s grandfather, Roger White and had the sweetest moments. The communion cup came from a family trip to Israel which Kaitlyn’s grandfather proudly bought for the most perfect occasion.
After the ceremony, a cocktail hour allowed for pictures by the bridal party. Guests were treated to signature cocktails and appetizers. The meatball was my personal favorite.
Once cocktail hour was over everyone was welcomed to the main reception tent.
The main entrance of the tent was tied with Italian ruscus and a mixture of hydrangeas and spray roses.
The white sail tent was draped with beautiful chandeliers. A variety of linens were used with a light grey, charcoal and light blue and gold color scheme. The bride chose a mix-match of china and it ended up GORGEOUS. The patterns were beautiful and all came together in blue and gold hues.
The bride and groom’s sweetheart table was one of my favorite things. Their table was draped with slate blue chiffon runners and a garland of mixed eucalyptus, nagi, Italian ruscus, white spray roses and hydrangeas. Lit by tapers on top and cylinder candles on the bottom, the romantic feel of this tablescape was felt by all.
Chairs were draped with the same chiffon and tied with greenery and monogrammed napkins graced their place setting.
After cocktail hour the bride and groom were introduced and the festivities began!
Dance lessons paid off for this beautiful couple and their first dance was beautiful! We love a dance that is not typical.
Other details of the day were captured so sweetly. The rain held off for the most part and it was a beautiful day full of love.
The most talented artist painted during the reception. It was a beautiful touch that the bride and groom can keep forever.
The evening wrapped up with a sparkler exit and a dress change.
Congratulations Kaitlyn and Joshua! I hope that your marriage always brings you joy in the good times and not so good times.
