Parents and grandparents of Molly and Jeremy entered the chapel as the Matron of Honor (and sister of the bride) sang “Momma’s Song”. The groomsmen and bridesmaids walked down the aisle to “Canon in D” as they headed towards a bountiful arrangement on the altar of white hydrangea, ivory roses, and bells of Ireland.
After the ceremony, guests were directed through a historic section of downtown Rome enroute to Georgia Northwester Technical College’s Conference center for the reception. At a table just outside the entrance, guests signed a large framed photo as well as a guest book filled with stunning shots of the couple.
The tables were simply yet elegantly decorated with tea lights and glass vases filled with lemons and flowers alternating between blue-green hydrangea and purple orchids from Bussey’s. A wooden dance floor graced the center of the room allowing everyone a good view to watch the couple’s first dance to “Then” by Brad Paisley. Dancing continued with music from the DJ, David McBurnett, all through the evening.
Past the dance floor and bride and groom table, the large three tiered wedding cake filled with cream cheese and strawberry butter cream from Honey Moon Bakery took center stage. It was decorated with a vine and dot pattern, and each tier was separated with blue hydrangea blooms matching the table centerpieces. The groom, being an Operations Consultant for Zaxby’s Franchising as well as a golf lover, decided to incorporate these two interests in his groom’s cake; the decadent chocolate cake filled with sour cream fudge sported a Zaxby’s mascot playing golf.
Throughout the night, guests took turns at the large photo booth set up at one side of the reception. This booth was complete with a decorative cloth back drop, light modifiers, and a large flash. Guests also dressed up for shots with an array of props including sombreros, fedoras, funky glasses, boas and more -A perfect memento to remember this special occasion.
