Wedding Link-Up: The Reception

I don't think I will ever get tired of looking at our wedding photos. I have such wonderful memories of our wedding day, and all the pictures just bring those back. I feel like the majority of planning was focused on the reception and it completely paid off. Our entire wedding took place at my parent's lake house in the north Georgia mountains.

While the ceremony was on a hill overlooking the lake, the reception took place directly next to the lake. We wanted a relaxed garden party feel, and I think we definitely achieved our goal. We covered the trees in white Christmas lights, and had mostly white flowers. The area is so gorgeous, we barely had to add anything. I loved seeing all of our work come together. I feel like I put details from our relationship into every detail. It felt so personal and was exactly as I imagined.

Hey everybody!
