From the Photographer:
Because Byron proposed to Katie in a hot air balloon, they chose to have their wedding be hot air balloon themed. And as the grand surprise, they actually had a hot air balloon on site! Their theme was “Fly Away with Me” and started with the beautiful invitation suite that was designed specifically for them and printed by Southern Sophistication Designs. Shannon’s Calligraphy provided the calligraphy on the envelopes and attached to each envelope were vintage stamps, many featuring hot air balloons. Katie and Byron asked in their RSVP card for each guest to send in a swatch of their favorite fabric that would then be turned into a quilt for them to display at their wedding and then use at their home. Their menus and coffee sleeves were all stamps with the same balloon stamp as the inside of their invitation envelope.
Katie and Byron were married on the grounds of Little River Farms in Alpharetta, GA in front of the vineyard at 9:30 in the morning. Their pew markers were lavender and their altar was bracketed by wine barrels. A water color artist was on hand to capture the entire scene in a painting. As Katie walked down the aisle, her mother gave her portraits of her grandparents to pin to her bouquet. When Katie and Byron kissed for the first time, a confetti popper showered them in color. They walked back up the aisle and jumped into their hot air balloon for a quick ride and photo op as their guests were served mimosas and Bloody Mary’s.
Their caterer, Another Broken Egg, a restaurant frequented by the bride and groom for brunch, served custom omelettes from station where guests could choose their toppings. They also provided a myriad of other brunch dishes including biscuits, muffins, and breakfast casseroles. The guests were able served on vintage china from Vintage English Teacup. Each table was adorned with travel and hot air balloon themed centerpieces from Southern Sophistication Designs. Guests were entertained by the jazz soul sounds of a two piece jazz band while eating and then later for dancing.
Katie and Byron exited their reception is a flood of colorful confetti.
