Photographing Beth and Quentin’s wedding was enough to make me want to move to Moultrie, GA myself, if only to become friends with them. You see, they are about the nicest couple you’ve ever met and judging from the toasts at their rehearsal dinner, a lot of their friends would agree. Though they met in DC, Beth’s charm brought Quentin to Moultrie, which is a cute little town in south Georgia known for its antique shops and charm.
Their evening wedding was held at the First Presbyterian Church and the sanctuary was adorned in white hydrangea, tulips, roses and orchids. It was a very Southern wedding, held in the church Beth grew up in and guests arrived early to get one of the prime seats as it was full to capacity.
Their reception followed at the Sunset Country Club where a large tent was set up complete with AC. I was going to say that if you’re from the south, you’d appreciate the AC. But given the heatwave this summer, everyone can appreciate how nice a cool breeze feels when you’re tearing up the dance floor to the excellent Atlanta Party Band!
Pink Bee Events out of Valdosta, GA coordinated the event and interior designer, Doug Carter, did the flowers and decor for the reception. It was absolutely stunning and heralded with a 7-layer wedding cake by Anne Sineath, complete with sugar flowers.
Do you remember the 4 C’s of buying your lady a diamond, gentlemen? Cut, color,clarity and carat.
We like big wedding parties in the South!
They decided to do a “first look” before their wedding so that we could take a lot of the family and wedding party photos before the ceremony. This is always a good idea, especially for evening ceremonies.
The ceremony flowers and this gorgeous bouquet were done by Ronnie Barrett
Mr. & Mrs. Bates!
Their wedding reception was so full of amazing details, such as these two love birds.
Interior designer, Doug Carter, created wonderful vignettes and seating areas through out the tent for the 700 guests. He had me at acrylic chivari chairs and chevron sequined linens.
A few more reception decor shots…
This photo makes me giggle. As proof as to how down to earth and fun Beth and Quentin are, here is a peek at the hors devourers guests enjoyed at the cocktail hour: jello shots and bacon. Need I say more about how fun this night was?
The Atlanta Party Band rocks!!!
There was lots of moving and shaking on the dancefloor!
I guess Quentin made the getting married thing look like fun… look at all those guys going after the garter!
Their wedding cake was a true work of art. You can not tell from this image, but the flowers adorning it are made of sugar. The presentation of it was just amazing! It is by Anne Sineath out of Atlanta, GA and hands down one of the most beautiful (and tasty!) cake’s I’ve seen.
LeiLani Golden helped me photograph their wedding and I love this shot she took during the cake cutting. I am an iPhone addict and would’ve probably been doing the same if I were a guest too.
Congratulations you two!!! It was an amazing weekend!!!
