Georgia has so many gorgeous rustic wedding venues & The Barn at Price Mountain Farm is truly one of Northern Georgia’s true gems. Heather & Chancey said their I Do’s there last September under a massive oak tree overlooking a picturesque green field. Their southern wedding was just filled with swoon-worthy detail, after swoon-worthy detail, all perfectly captured by Andie Freeman Photography. And with a navy & rose quartz wedding palette you know you have some wedding pretty coming your way.
From the Bride, Heather:
How They Met:
We knew each other in high school through mutual friends. One night a few years later we ran into each other again. Later that night Chancey asked one of my friends for my number and began calling me after that. We finally went on our first date a few weeks later and began dating at that time. We spent some time apart during our college years when Chancey went away for college. When he came back home we began dating again and have been together ever since.
We are complete opposites in so many ways. As cliche as it sounds, we actually do complete one another. He is the talker and out going one, and I am shy and reserved. We just love to spend time with one another and live life together. We went on a cruise in February for vacation, just the two of us. Chancey had been discussing the proposal with the maitre d’ and coming up with a plan through out the entire cruise. On the second to last night of the cruise we were at dinner and the maitre d’ called Chancey down to the center of the dining room in front of about 300 guests. He then called me down and Chancey asked in front of the entire dining room. It was very special and exciting for us both.
I knew I wanted to get married in a barn and have a vintage wedding. I also wanted to make sure I put more into the reception so that it was a big party for everyone, and a celebration of our two families becoming one.
My dress was very simple, nothing too big or fancy. I love lace and knew I wanted a solid lace dress. I bought the dress from Affordable Bridal in Buford, GA. As far as my shoes I went simple there as well with cowgirl boots.
My favorite moment of the day was seeing Chancey for the first time standing at the end of the aisle waiting on me.
Most Memorable Moment:
The most memorable moment of the whole wedding for me was the reaction from Chancey and myself when we finally saw each other. There is so much love between the two of us and I feel as though that showed throughout the entire wedding. We did not do a first look so I got to see Chancey’s reaction to seeing me for the first time at the same time everyone else did. His reaction was priceless and I loved it.
The best advice was to enjoy every moment and remember that it is just one day of our lives.
My biggest expense was photography but this was the thing that was most important to me so I was prepared for this to be my biggest expense.
We took on the DIY project of making our wedding favors ourselves. We chose to do s’mores, so we put all the s’mores together and packaged them for each guest. I also made all the wreaths that we used on all the doors and the big wreath we used at the top of the barn doors with the “D” in the middle. Lastly, I made all my bridesmaids and our mothers a hanger for their dresses the day of the wedding. The hangers had their names on them as well as their title in the wedding and the wedding date on them.
