It was a wedding destined to happen. On a beautiful May day Kristen and Josh said ‘I do’ in front of their closest friends and loved ones at the Catholic Church of the Good Shepherd. The bride wore a timeless lace gown by Carrie’s Bridal Collection, her bridesmaids beautiful in dresses by Amsale. To compliment the ethereal look of the blush bridesmaid dresses, Amanda Jenkins created non-traditional floral arrangements for each ‘maid. The bride and groom’s good friend, Father Frank presided over the ceremony, a traditional Catholic Mass, even gracing the couple with a surprise serenade of “Sunset” from Fiddler on the Roof – which would go on to become one of the bride and groom’s favorite moments. A reception at Tolemac Farm, a wedding venue in Jasper, Georgia, followed, the perfect venue to capture the essence of elegant intimacy the couple wanted for their guests. Wreaths of evergreen set the tone for the event décor – representing everlasting love and celebration. The cocktail hour featured Center Cut Catering’s famous applewood smoked candied bacon – a sure crowd favorite – as well as pimento cheese puff pastry vol-au-vents and fried lobster lollipops. The reception offered iceberg wedge salads, an andoullie sausage shrimp and grits station, garlic smashed potatoes, and various other scrumptious delights. Guests topped off the culinary experience with dual-flavored wedding cake by Cakes by Carissa, an Atlanta based cake designer, and bread pudding wedding favors. Tunes by MSA Entertainment got the party hopping, and Kristin and Josh partied the night away with their guests beneath the picturesque North Georgia sunset.
