Thank you Sidney Middlebrooks Photography for these beautiful images!
From the first time I spoke with Sarah, I knew her wedding would be a blast to be a part of. She is kind, laid back, and beautifully organized - the bridal trifecta - and was so sweet to work with! Sarah knew she wanted to enjoy her wedding and not worry about the little details that can cause so much distraction, so she very intentionally assembled a team to make that a reality. She and Cam wanted to celebrate with a small group of friends and family and enjoy one another. Now that's a wedding vision I can get behind!
It was such a pleasure to work at the new Milledgeville venue, Adam's Acres Riverside Events. The location is absolutely picturesque, situated right along the water with lots of greenery to explore. Sarah and Cam's photographer, Sidney, has a blast exploring the property and the pictures show it! This sweet spot has been in the owner's family for many years, largely unused, so he decided to turn it into something beautiful! The arbor sets a perfect backdrop for the ceremony, and the covered pavilion is ideal for a reception - rain or shine. With so much gorgeous scenery, this fall wedding was absolutely breathtaking. Because they built the venue from scratch for this express purpose, no detail was left out. A warming kitchen, bride and groom's suites, and plenty of storage for their tables and chairs are small conveniences that make a huge difference on a wedding day!
Lizzie from Little Blue Knot designed a wedding that suited Sarah and Cam to a T! Sarah is classic, romantic, and laid back, and Cam is a wilderness lover at heart. Lizzie incorporated wild floral elements, soft flowing drapery, and a s'mores station - all to represent and reflect the couple's unique traits. She even helped source mini pies to accompany the brides' and grooms' cakes! Lizzie's style is artistic and organic, and she loves to create a floral design that is true to the couple she's working with.
In the days leading up to Sarah and Cam's wedding, I had several folks tell me how excited they were to have Heirloom Cafe from Athens catering the reception. Having spent very little time in Athens, this was new to me and I was excited to try it! And ohhhh man. They did not disappoint. This local spot is known for its farm-to-table cuisine with a unique flair. The menu included classic southern dishes like collard greens, mac n cheese, and pulled pork sandwiches, all with a special twist. The meal was served family style on funky dishes you'd find in any southern grandma's kitchen, and each dish was scrumptious. And they were just a ton of fun. Great food, awesome service, and a really good bunch of folks.
Congratulations, Sarah and Cam! What a sweet day!
