I'm so excited to share Evan and Brian's gorgeous southern plantation wedding with you today! I could go on and on describing their incredible venue, fresh color palette, sweet blossoms, and gorgeous fashion, but I'll just let the beautiful photos from Browne Photography tell the rest of the story!
The Couple: Evan and Brian
The Wedding: 5.28.11 - Glen Arven Country Club - Thomasville, GA
What three adjectives best describe your wedding? Elegant, fun and beautiful
What was your wedding color palette? Black, white and soft green
What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? My personal style is classic with a twist, exactly like our wedding! The ceremony site really inspired me to keep the wedding very classic and beautiful. We added a twist at the reception with great bands, tons of dancing and lot of food. I also wanted to keep my dress a little different and not have the classic wedding dress.
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? The ceremony site was one of my favorite parts. You drove in the gates, down a beautiful canopy covered road to the main house. Our ceremony was on the lawn overlooking the pond. For the reception, it was a big decision to put the tent over the putting green and have the band outside. I will never regret that decision to dance looking over the beautiful golf course and oak trees. Also, I’m so glad that we decided to have a big wedding with all of our friends and family. I honestly loved everything and cannot think of anything I would change.
What piece of advice would you give to a bride planning her wedding today? Know what you like and what your style is, and focus on that. You could spend hours and hours looking at different things and second guessing yourself. It will drive you crazy! Once you have made a decision you are happy with, embrace it and don’t look back!
