I had such an awesome time working with this couple!! When I first met Jamie and Falon, they were feeling a bit stressed trying to find a venue that would match their personalities and accommodate their 300-person guest list. After a couple of meetings to discuss the logistics, they decided on something a bit different: they were going to rent BOTH of our venues! Falon had final say in their wedding date and chose Friday June 15th because it is her parents’ anniversary (tear!).
After their heartfelt ceremony in the Piedmont Room, guests were escorted on a short walk outside into the Garden Tent for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Jamie & Falon took some pictures with their family & bridal party and then joined their guests under the Tent for a night full of heartfelt toasts, great dancing, and hopefully many awesome memories!
Before we get caught up in the photos, let me just say—does Falon not look ba-na-nas in her dress!? This girl was born to be a bride!
And as if being perfectly photogenic weren’t enough, this couple is absolutely one of the most ‘real’, down-to-earth and truly sweet couples
I’ve had the chance to work with. They were much in tune with what their wedding day meant to each other and to their family & friends, and were so excited to have those people surrounding them that day. Here’s a little back story from Falon about how she & Jamie met:
We met at church when were 11 and 12 years old. He started to have feelings for me but I had no idea what I really wanted. We were really good friends throughout high school and college, even though he went to school in Australia and I was in Tennessee. When we both moved back to Georgia our friendship was just as strong as ever. We continued to be really close over the next few years and it gradually grew into something so much more than just a friendship. We had fallen in love with our best friends!
On July 24, 2011, I had just gotten back from a friend’s wedding in Virginia and he had a limo pick us up and take us to dinner. After dinner, the limo took us back to my house and his family had decorated the house with flowers, candles and left beautiful music playing. In the middle of it all he had a rose for our past, a rose for our present and a ring for our future and he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!
Congratulations you guys! We hope you’ll come visit out on the pati0 soon.
