Courtney + Doug: Wedding Recap

Courtney and Doug had an intimate wedding at Studio 887 in Atlanta. It was a beautiful day for an outdoor ceremony. Here are the professional photos courtesy of Brenda Upton.

We used blue and orange lanterns and ribbon to decorate the trees around the ceremony site.

The bride's mom was her maid of honor and escorted her down the aisle with the bride's father.

Mason jars served as candle holders

I loved the unity candle "set" they chose for the ceremony.

Once Doug and Courtney were married they went off for a few minutes alone while we started the reception.

Inside Studio 887, guests were greeted with the guest book and escort cards

The reception room was set up with long banquet tables and tons of potted plants in vintage tins

The couple designed their own menu cards

And party favors

Guests gathered around to watch the first dances

Instead of a traditional wedding cake, the groom's mom made cupcakes!

The cards on the cupcake tower say "Made with love by Mom Carter"

Up next, wait until you see what Courtney and Doug did with all the flowers and plants from the reception.

Michelle, thank you so much for all of your ideas and input and for helping me come up with all of these cool ideas. My wedding was everything I had hoped for, and that is hugely due to you and your creativity. I couldn't have asked for a better designer and planner. You are the best!!!!!
