Starting off the week with this romantic wedding that is sweeter than a Georgia peach! Noi Tran captured this beautiful neutral toned Georgia wedding on film, and every image is effortlessly elegant. I love all the meaningful details they included, like the favors shipped all the way from Ecuador to honor the bride’s heritage. Their real focus was the ceremony, which had everyone in tears when the bride’s dad surprised her by singing “I Loved Her First”.
I’m not southern born, but I’m southern raised. Georgia has always been my home, so I wanted somewhat of a rustic, vintage feel for the wedding. I love all things classic and timeless. I also wanted everything to look very pure, so I knew I wanted a natural palate with whites and creams in a country setting. The old horse stables at FoxHall were perfect, especially since we could be inside during the hot August weather.
My (Estefania) grandpa Joel’s bible was used to carry the rings. My grandpa passed away in 2009. He would have loved Nate because they have so much in common. My grandpa was General of Ecuador, and Nate was in the US Air Force. They’re both very generous and loving men of God.
The ceremony was our main focus while planning. We wanted our wedding to show others how God loves us and how His love allows us to love each other. Because we weren’t marrying at a church, my dad built a cross for us to place in the venue. We also planned two worship songs, “How Great Is The Love” and “Ever Be” which were sung by two friends and my brother and sister. My dad is a pastor, and I always knew I wanted him to marry me. Nate’s mentor, and one of his groomsmen, is also a pastor. As such, we planned so that both played a part during the ceremony. Nate also washed my feet as a symbol of humility and service as God calls husbands to be for wives as Jesus was for the church.
Estefania- My favorite part was when I saw Nate’s face as I walked down the aisle and when my daddy sang “I Loved Her First” by Heartland during the ceremony (everyone was sobbing). Nate- My favorite was when I saw Estefania walk down the aisle (she was far more beautiful than I ever thought she was going to be).
My mom came up with the idea for the wood chips lined along the back of an old door for table seatings. All table name cards were my mom’s idea. We did the fruits of the spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and self-control) as well as truth, grace, and faith. My aunt painted them onto the wood. The favors were shipped in from Ecuador.
We also loved the dancing! The DJ played a mix of American and Latin top hits. EVERYONE was dancing, even the grandmas.
