About The Wedding
I confess, I was beginning to think Christine's wedding day would never actually happen! It was originally scheduled for March 2011, and the date changed at least three times. Since Rich is Australian, they had to jump through hoops for almost two years to get his visa situated. They ended up getting married in Australia in October 2011, and then were finally able to have this vow renewal and party for their American friends almost a year later. The venue hugs the banks of the Chattahoochee, and thanks to a quick afternoon rainstorm, the river was covered with a magical mist. Christine's fall-themed decor of white pumpkins, mercury glass, berries and burlap looked gorgeous, especially with the leaves just beginning to turn. After a beautiful, personalized ceremony on the deck, guests enjoyed a fabulous buffet and candy bar. It was the laid-back, intimate event that Christine had dreamed of for so long!
My Favorite Detail
Christine made a favor I have never seen before: little boxes with magnet inside that were made from Scrabble pieces, spelling out words like Love, Joy, Sing, Care, etc. These perfectly fit my criteria for favors: cute, unique AND useful.
My Favorite Moment
Before coming downstairs from their private meal to join their guests, Christine declared that she just couldn't wear her shoes anymore, but that she was a little worried about appearing too casual. Rich immediately kicked off his shoes as well, so they would be barefoot together! And so they stayed for the rest of the evening!
