A NOTE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER

There is something amazing about a wedding held among the trees at the height of spring. Anne & Holton's wedding inspiration began from the memories of where they met - in the rainforest of Panama. As a wedding coordinator for an amazing floral and event design company in Augusta, GA, Greg Boulus Events, Anne knew that she wanted to create a wedding day that was unique to her and Holton. While hunting for the perfect venue, a friend suggested they look into Serenbe, a progressive community on the outskirts of Atlanta set among acres of forests & meadows with an emphasis of arts, business and a new standard for living in "community." A very similar feel to the town where they met years ago in Panama, the organic beauty of the tree lined paths, ceremony set among the pines and reception on the lake, they knew it was exactly where they wanted to say "I do" for their big day.

With a color palette inspired by nature and the blooms of springtime, Anne & Holton's day couldn't have been more perfect. Anne & her bridesmaids spent the morning getting ready in the gorgeous Guest House at Serenbe, while Holton and his groomsmen played bocce ball on the open pastures next to baby sheep, goats and more. A relaxed start to the day led to the most welcoming celebration full of beauty!

Anne's timeless Anne Barge gown with the lavender sash was so beautiful next to her lush bouquet designed by Greg Boulus Events. A classic bride with a hint of organic whimsy, Anne wore her grandmother's stunning vintage dinner ring as an heirloom piece. They said their I Do's underneath an incredible floral arbor surrounded by a pine forest and danced the night away at their reception - a perfect mix of organic rustic elegance. Everything from the cake adorned with blooms of hellebores to the cross-backed chairs welcoming guests from all over for this destination wedding served as the perfect close to the night.
