In August, we had the pleasure of coordinating Alexis + Ryan’s wedding in Douglasville at Foxhall Resort. The day was graced with lavender, peach, cream, and natural tones with touches of silver courtesy of Southern Stems as these two lovebirds said “I do” in a beautiful outside ceremony. We loved every second of witnessing the love these two have for each other. Ryan is a Marine and we enjoyed hearing how supported and valued he has felt throughout their relationship and his time in the service. When it comes to soulmates, these two are undeniably a match!
One of our absolute favorites moments of the day was Alexis’s first look with her father. The two have such a sweet relationship and it made us tear up to watch his face when he first saw her! We also couldn’t help but notice how amazing Alexis looked in her bridal ensemble, and how wonderfully Carla Gates Photography captured it. Alexis and Ryan’s first look was nothing short of stunning as the bride and groom couldn’t stop smiling. Alexis was perfectly complemented by her ladies in lavender floor-length dresses and the gentleman in classic black tuxedos.
After a heartfelt ceremony complete with a tree planting ceremony, guests enjoyed lawn games and danced the night away alongside the guests of honor. The mother/son dance and father/daughter dance were incredibly special to watch, and the bride and groom’s first dance captured the joy and peace they bring out in one another. The Maid of Honor, Alexis’s sister, and the Best Man, Ryan’s friend, represented the essence of their relationship so nicely in their toasts to the new Mr. and Mrs., and it was clear that everyone in attendance was thrilled to witness such a perfect union.
Alexis and Ryan, we are so thankful to have been a part of your happily ever after. We wish you two all the best as you grow old together!
