A Shabulous Barn Wedding

An account of
Melissa and Ryan's big day!

The air was crisp and the smells were fresh.  Bridesmaids and bees were buzzing about with last minute tasks and excitement.  Melissa and Ryan with their chosen few were anxiously preparing for this day that will bound their lives forever.  The scene is set on a sweet piece of land complete with horse barn stables and draping fence along rolling hills.  This all backed by fragrant dense Georgia pines.

Enjoy an inside look at a true southern wedding fit for a true Georgia peach!

Special rustic accents add to the country whimsy and small-town charm.

Strands of twinkle lights outline grandpa Bob's tractor as the perfect backdrop to vintage serving ware with fresh floral cuts!

An honored memorial is displayed in sweet heartfelt fashion.

Large and attractive working horse stables are embellished with draping sheer tulle throughout with twinkling firefly lights.  Glamorous vintage style chandeliers hang from alternating beams giving the perfect glow for a romantic ambiance.

With a full-on BBQ buffet the event serves up a strong southerly appetite.  Pulled pork, stewed green beans, specialty potato salad and more satisfy those who have come to share the day!

It was both food and fun for the remainder of the evening while the bride and groom raised the barn with their best dance moves!

It was a perfect day with a perfect ending!
