A Braselton Stover House Wedding, Braselton, Georgia | Katie & Heath

It was a gorgeous late spring day for a Braselton Stover House wedding. The venue is amazing. It was perfect weather for aย  Georgia spring wedding; the trees and flowers were blooming. It was warm outside but not too warm. It was just dreamy.

When we got to town, we found Heath and his guys hanging out at the local Men’s Room getting all shaved up. The Men’s Room is a really cool barbershop, probably the coolest one I’ve ever been in. ๐Ÿ˜‰ (<- In case you’re wondering, Natosha writes all our blog posts ;)).

Afterwards, we met Katie and the girls over at the Braselton Stover House to catch them getting ready. The Braselton Stover House was an awesome venue. Braselton Stover House weddings are classically southern, much like the venue, itself. There are gorgeous old trees towering over the antebellum home. The grounds are groomed gorgeously, and there is a tree with a heart shaped callous. How cool is that?! And if you’re sneaky, there is an old barn next door that’s just perfect for taking photos next to. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The bridal suite was so spacious, and the guys had almost the entire historic home to themselves. Heath and Katie decided to exchange gifts on wedding day. Heath is into movies, so Katie sent a song from a movie over with her gift (played on the phone by her sister in green). And Heath mentioned doing a similar thing in the letter he sent to her, but thought it might be cheesy. Great minds think alike. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Katie’s parents were very involved for the day (her mom made both the cakes!). I love how these two photos came together of Katie with her parents.:)

The ceremony location was stunning, especially with Katie and Heath’s special touches of lanterns and burlap. And they even made some awesome centerpieces for the reception. Katie is a stunning southern lady with some much classic grace (and a fun side).

They had the cutest ring bearer and can we take a minute to talk about the suspenders?! All the guys had on monogrammed suspenders…yes, even the ring bearer. Adorable. He was totally the star of the show. Until the lovely lady and her dad came around the corner. Then it was all smiles and waterworks for the next 30 minutes.

Their ceremony was amazing. Like usual, I think a few tears fell from my cheeks during their ceremony. In place of a candle ceremony, they performed a foot washing ceremony. I’m in love with it. It was so sweet and God-centered. Even though I have heard of them before, I’ve never seen one done in person. It was gorgeous and elegant, not at all like I had envisioned.

We got to sneak away with the gorgeous couple after the ceremony (it’s our favorite part of wedding days!!). It’s a great time to just breathe and enjoy the happy rush you get walking down the aisle. Looking back, it was our favorite moment of our own wedding day. Our photographer captured the emotion of that moment, and as photographers, we try to help you savor that special moment of the day. You can even kick off your shoes (you can’t tell, but Katie did just that!). ๐Ÿ˜‰

We even stopped by the sign they made on our way back into the reception. They had so many fun details throughout the venue. From the letters on the door (above) to the teal card cage, sign in frame, and even the cake stand. And that cake! Gorgeous!

And there’s a story to go with this next little set. We know you want photos of the bouquet and garter toss. And it can be a technically difficult photo to capture (it’s dark, there’s a tiny, moving object to get into focus, and emotions to capture all at once). So, just to be sure that Nathan and I are ready to capture the moment, I always stand in front of (or near) the bride and groom to count off the toss. So, I’m telling Heath, “No, not yet. I need just another second or two to get the settings all right.” He was fidgeting with the garter asking how to throw it and I’m telling him his options. He asks again if I’m ready. I wasn’t. (…Because we were talking through tossing options). And can you see the expression on his face. “Oh, really. How about this?” That stinker. Tossed it before I was totally set. He’s lucky we’re as good as we are because I actually did capture the entire moment (almost) like I wanted it to look. ๐Ÿ˜› Good thing we’re good. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And after a long night of fun and partying at a Braselton Stover House wedding on a perfect spring day, the couple was sent off into the night with a blast of sparklers. Oh, how I love weddings!!
