This classic garden wedding is Southern charm at its finest!  Pale blush pink and white in outdoor venue with greenery and blossoms galore.  The bride designed the watercolor invite with its bold color and is our favorite detail.

Here’s the inside scoop on this sweet couple and their symbolic wedding from their photographer, Jessi Nichols:

Thomas and Rachel’s story was truly told throughout their wedding day. Their steadfast love for one another is what they strove to share with their guests. Every single detail had a purpose and meaning. Each detail that played a role in their wedding day was either a family heirloom, handmade by the couple, or borrowed from a special family member. The bride’s father suddenly passed away from a rock climbing accident when she was in high school, so Rachel wanted to honor him and include his details throughout.  She gifted her groom with a pair of her father’s cuff links, his wedding band, and her father’s last pocket square.  Among other family heirlooms was her Great Grandfather’s bible as well as her mother’s garter and the communion table. The cross for the ceremony was built by the groom, just another example how every single detail of this day was special and significant. There were tears, prayers, and deep breaths throughout the day.  Rachel was walked down the aisle by her two brothers, tears streaming from all of their eyes, and her grandfather met them at the end to give her away in honor of his son who had passed. As she approached, Thomas couldn’t help but let all of the emotion flood out.  After 6 years of dating, it all lead to this moment.
