It’s Heating Up!

The stunning three-tiered wedding cake with beautiful flowers caught everyone's attention as they walked into the reception.

Outdoor weddings are a great choice for couples as they are full of priceless décor. Occasionally this beautiful scenery can come at a cost. Despite the record high Georgia heat, the bride and groom pulled off a breathtaking wedding by the alluring lakes and elegant red bridge at Bella Terra. Once guests were seated and the mothers and grandmothers walked down the aisle to “What a Wonderful World”, the bride made her entrance to “Isn’t She Lovely”, words everyone in the audience was thinking.

The reception was held just a few steps from the ceremony in one of Bella Terra’s reception spaces. Guests walked through the French doors and into a large open house with lively music from The TC Show. To the left of the entrance was a great view of the gorgeous three tiered wedding cake by Honeymoon Bakery decorated with luscious pink roses accented with diamond pins.

Appetizers from Harvest Moon were served to guest while waiting for the newlyweds. A yummy treat before dinner!

Before the bridal party arrived, guests enjoyed delectable appetizers from Harvest Moon including chips with hot pimento cheese dip, crab cakes, and refreshing Golden Wedding punch (a signature recipe from The Season)!

Once the bride and groom walked in along with the bridal party, it was time to cue the slow dancing. The newlyweds danced their memorable first dance to, “When You Say Nothing At All”. The bride and her father then danced to “I Loved Her First”. This was followed by the groom and his mother dancing to “Because You Loved Me”. Next was a unique and touching sentiment by the groom; he shared a dance with his grandmother to “There You’ll Be”, bringing on the tears.

Flowers from Bussey's made beautiful centerpieces for the reception tables!

As everyone began to eat the scrumptious dinner prepared by Harvest Moon consisting of pecan roasted chicken, twice baked potatoes and more, guests found tables throughout the large screened in room letting everyone continue enjoying the outdoors in a cooler way. The tables were decorated with pink tea lights and square vases filled with pink carnations and roses from Bussey’s to match the bouquets.

At the end of the night, the couple was showered with bubbles as they departed in the bride’s beloved classic Mustang!
