Today’s wedding is the perfect celebration to get you ready for the spring. With a gorgeous garden celebration filled with fresh white and green flowers, Erin and Brad were married among family and friends under the blue Southern skies. Photographed oh-so-prettily by Andie Freeman Photography, this is one cheerful wedding you’ll need to see! A few words from the photographer:
Erin and Brad were married on a beautiful early summer day in the South. They were married outdoors in a stunningly elegant ceremony underneath an arbor covered in white roses, lilies, and sheer drapery. Wedding Flowers by On created beautiful bouquets of white roses and lilies.
Erin wore a taffeta modern ball gown with spaghetti straps,complete with pockets for her handkerchief. Her bridesmaids had matching short dresses in a fresh green. The Master’s Table served a delicious southern meal best described as “church lady” cooking. It was a fantastic and beautiful day. And, Erin and Brad are currently expecting their first child.
