Google+ Southern Wedding of the Week: Beth + Robert, Part II - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Beth + Robert’s interview reveals how they infused family into their celebration and how the bridesmaids dealt with a rip in a dress! Check out all the shots on W. Scott Chester Photography’s {Blog}. Happy Black Friday ya’ll!

The weather on our wedding day was: More than perfect. Georgia in August is not known for pleasant temperatures but the temps dropped a few degrees just for our special day.
What was the design inspiration for your wedding? Nature
Favorite design element of your big day: The vineyard itself created the best backdrop you could ever produce.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: I wanted something that looked as natural as the surroundings; I didn’t want the glitz of the dress to distract from the beauty of the mountains and trees around. The English netting was a perfect fabric that moved so nicely in the breeze.
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: The vineyard, which was not really a detail but defined everything else in the wedding.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? There weren’t any huge hurdles. Robert is in law school and didn’t have a lot of time to plan. That got frustrating at times but in the end it all worked out.
Funniest moment? One of my bridesmaid’s dresses split right up the side. Luckily another maid is handy with a needle and thread, fixed it up perfectly and they hid it from me until the reception. At that point I couldn’t have cared less if she were wearing a trash bag.
What advice would you give to someone planning their wedding?
Don’t stress out about any details, in the end you will just be happy to be married.
Best advice or most memorable comment someone made to you during the wedding celebration.
“There wasn’t an ugly one up there.” – family friend when talking about my beautiful bridesmaids.
What’s next for you as a couple? Robert will finish law school and we will be off to a location TBD.
What are you looking forward to in the future? Everything. We have so many dreams and plans its going to be exciting to see what comes next.

Congratulations to Beth + Robert!  We wish you a lifetime of happiness wherever life takes you!

    GORGEOUS! I just love the natural feel and the bridesmaid story is hilarious….always wise to keep the small things from a bride until she has a drink or two in her or the reception has gotten well under way.
