We had a cotton pickin’ good time at our wedding! We were so blessed to have the perfect wedding on a dock on my parents’ pond. We are a very outdoorsy couple and enjoy hunting and fishing together, we are each other’s best friend and can’t wait to see what the future holds for us! Our unity ceremony was something unique, we planted a tree together using soil from where we grew up and mixed it together and then planted it later at our new home.
A sunset wedding on the dock showcased this couples love of the outdoors. Organic elements and the beautiful natural landscape of the bride’s family’s homeplace set the atmosphere for a cotton pickin’ good time to be had by all. Guests enjoyed a full dinner menu of southern comfort foods under the evening stars. They danced the night away beneath a treetop canopy filled with twinkling lights. To send the couple off in style, fireworks lit the night sky, softly reflecting off the pond creating an everlasting memory for the McGees!
