Living in Atlanta has its perks for sure, but any time we can leave and explore a new part of Georgia, is a welcome treat! We visited The Corry House last spring for a bridal portrait session, but went back again in August for Christina and Ryan’s romantic, southern wedding. There is something indeed about this quiet plantation home that is so inviting and relaxing. The wedding day started with Christina upstairs getting ready with her girls. She had with her an antique hand mirror and a dressing shawl that was her great-grandmother’s. Every detail of Christina’s wardrobe was vintage-inspired and fit the theme of her wedding perfectly, right down to that gorgeous lace, flutter-sleeve gown! Ryan looked sharp with his guys, wearing blue-grey suits and ties. Ryan had a special addition to his wardrobe- a pocket watch on a chain with Christina’s picture inside. He had it out during their “first look” and it was such a touching moment as he looked down at her picture.
Christina and Ryan chose to have their wedding in the woods near the plantation home, which was a lovely tree-lined clearing with strings of bulb lights from the altar. The whole scene was ethereal and beautiful. The heart-felt ceremony was a perfect mix of humor and emotion, and even their pit-bull Daisy was so excited for them, she ran out of her flower collar and leash! After a large wedding photo, we settled into portraits with the friendliest horses at the property and played on old swings hanging on oak trees. The day was hot, but friends and family danced the night away in the renovated barn. We walked away with the smell of sparklers and smooth country air hanging around us, but with lasting memories of this wonderful rustic summer wedding. Congratulations again Christina and Ryan!
