About The Wedding
Michele is a dear friend of Jamie, my original wedding assistant. When she called me early in her planning process, she was a little bit stressed because she wanted things to be easy, and they weren't! But soon enough, as it typically goes, we found her perfect venue and the other elements fell into place. Vines Mansion in Loganville is a hidden gem, a beautifully restored mansion on the grounds of a spacious Gwinnett County Park. The wedding day was chilly but sunny, and Michele and Jon took advantage of the beautiful grounds to do their First Look photos. We were able to hold the ceremony outside at dusk, and the lighting was just beautiful! A buffet dinner followed, and one of the funniest scenes I've ever witnessed: Michele's mom's Korean friends (about 30 of them) rushing into the room for dinner, being first in line for the buffet, and then immediately leaving, all in a group! This left Michele and Jon's friends ready to hit the dance floor, which they did, after some touching speeches and the cutting of the bride's traditional cake and the groom's Star Wars-themed cake.
My Favorite Detail
Michele provided beautiful peach pashminas for the bridesmaids to keep them warm in the late fall chill. The color was gorgeous against their gray dresses!
