Jess and John’s gorgeous summer wedding may have dawned on a cool and rainy day, but their yellow and lavender colors added a splash of sunny warmth to their chapel ceremony and white barn reception! They envisioned a celebration that felt classic and timeless, while incorporating some of the details that felt most personal to them as a couple. From the bride’s favorite color to a personalized monogram logo for their details, signature cocktails inspired by their beloved dog and served from a mobile bar cart and ceremony altar decor that made them look ‘floating in flowers’, their day was magical from start to finish! Planned and beautifully designed by Georgia wedding studio Everything and More Events and captured in all its glory by Laura Watson Photography, their dreamy real wedding is a beautiful example of how to celebrate your love, your faith, and your family in the most gorgeous way!

How much fun is this floral flatlay to show off the classic wedding invitations! Jess and John used a signature monogram that was embossed on their stationery as well as used throughout the day!
When creating our invitations, our wedding “logo”, which consisted of our first initials, was used not only on our invitations, but twisted into a beautiful staple detail that encompassed our wedding day. The logo was created on the welcome sign, seating chart, and even on the cocktail napkins.
We went to at least 5 stores looking for the dress that was classic, of course, but also had an extra wow factor to make it different. I knew I wanted a dress that flowed out below the waist so I could dance and feel comfortable all day. Also, we felt the Chapel needed a cathedral-like dress to flow down the aisle. I loved the clean, pristine satin look and my dress had an extra detail with the pleats along the waistline. The back of my dress was beyond my favorite part, I wanted to say hello to everyone backwards so they could see all the beautiful, heavy diamond rhinestones designed on my back.
The florist added sunny yellow blooms to the bouquet to create a yellow and lavender color scheme for the flower arrangements that added gorgeous warmth to their white chapel ceremony venue!
My favorite color was purple growing up, so we started with a dusty purple as the bridesmaid’s dress color and the rest fell into place with gold added as an accent color.

Once we found the ceremony and reception venues, I knew everything our planner, Terri Rice of Everything and More Events, would do, would be incredible and I trusted her creativity and talent. Initially, I fell in love with naturals and light colors, including grays, but we knew each venue needed flowers, bridesmaid dresses, tablecloths with color to pop against all the white walls.
My absolute favorite detail was our planner/florist having the idea of casting flowers along the back of the ceremony Chapel’s walls, highlighting the stone cross. It was one of my favorite elements because the pictures looked as if John and I were floating in flowers while we were standing in front of friends and family reciting our vows.
We had a “flower granny”, which was beyond special. My granny walked down the aisle before me holding the arm of my brother, tossing flower petals from my great grandmother’s egg basket decorated with flowers. She did an amazing job (being so nervous) and caught the hearts of all our guests!
After the chapel ceremony, guests joined the couple for their reception at Barn South in Talmo, GA! The gorgeous white barn venue allowed their color scheme and decor to flow effortlessly from the ceremony into the reception, with their signature yellow and lavender flowers and pops of gold adding sunny color to the space on a rainy day.
The high ceilings and contemporary chandeliers in the white barn gave them lots of room to play with! Crush Event Design brought their reception dreams to life with a mix of round and long barn tables for the guests. Rustic cane back wood chairs blended beautifully with the mauve velvet and geometric gold lounge details, adding warmth to the soaring event space!
Everything and More Events created gorgeous tall arrangements to keep the tabletop open and allow guests to chat – they created floral chandeliers over the dining tables, while mercury glass votives and bud vases of spring flowers added colors ranging from buttery yellow, lilac, blush, and eggplant purple.
Guests poured signature cocktails from a retro mobile bar, adding a fun and personal detail to the reception!
Earlier in the wedding planning, I found Get Fizzy, the mobile bar cart, and “she” ended up being the talk of the reception! Fizzy added the perfect, fun decor piece to our wedding reception and served amazing cocktails. Jax, our dog, even made a debut at the bar with his picture in a painting, on the koozies, and of course our signature drinks were called “Jax’s Drinks”.
Cake Envy created the white and gold wedding cake, adding elegant detail with a deckled edge and a base of colorful flowers. The stunning white and champagne rosette tablecloth from I Do Linens turned the dessert table into a showstopping detail!
