It was a HUGE honor when we were asked to coordinate the wedding of our sweet couple Lauren and Blake. We were SUPER excited to work with them after being connected by a past TVBC couple Molly & Tony. When we first met with Lauren and Blake, we knew this was going to be a fun wedding. Blake has a refreshing sense of humor and he always keeps a smile on Lauren’s face.
The ceremony took place at the Cathedral of Christ The King. The architecture at the Cathedral is absolutely AMAZING. I felt like I jumped right into a page in a fairytale. The bride and groom decided to do a first look. I remember when I went to get Lauren from her STUNNING bridal suite. I held her train as I escorted her over to the intimate courtyard. I can imagine all the thoughts that came to her mind as she was preparing to see Blake for the very first time. Carrie Joy photography captured this romantic moment PERFECTLY!!! I know it will be one of those moments they will cherish forever.
The reception took place at the Piedmont Room in Piedmont Park. Watching the sun set through the soft drapery was gorgeous. The room was wrapped with windows to see views of the city. Lauren and Blake entered with an AWESOME dance. I TOTALLY felt like I was watching, Dancing with the Stars. It was a cute surprise that their guests loved!!! Their dance was followed by touching speeches from the Father of the Bride, Best Man and Matron of Honor. During group photos, the bride’s sorority sisters did the sweetest serenade. Emerald Empire Band then got the party started with their incredible vocals and instrument playing. You truly felt like you were at a concert and had backstage passes :-).
It was a classic and beautiful wedding. We are forever grateful to take part in such a special day. Lauren and Blake we wish you a lifetime of love, fun, and laughter. It was a joy meeting you both and becoming so close with your family. We are so happy to welcome you into the TVBC family. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Hebbel!!!
