Intimate + Colorful Wedding in Athens, Georgia

Colorful Georgia Wedding

Simple, refined, colorful, intimate, but mostly — full of love. Katrina + her long-time beau, Parker, felt that something low-key suited their relationship, so that’s exactly what they planned at the Tree Room in Athens, Georgia! But just because they kept it low-key doesn’t mean it wasn’t beautiful, but rather quite the opposite! The bridesmaids had floral cuffs, the reception space was decked out with potted wildflowers in coffee shop tins, and after the ceremony, the guests headed to a local bar.

Katrina shares Because I was marrying my long time love of 16 years I wanted our day to reflect that, simple yet special. Just a low-key gathering of friends and family to celebrate us and make new memories. (In a beautiful dress, of course, and amazing pictures to capture those memories!)

Let’s take a peek at how it all came together in the photos by Someplace Wild!

ALL THE COLOR! Also, confetti is such a fun way to dress up photos + dance floors, tablescapes, etc. :)

Sarah Seven Wedding Dress

Isn’t this dress by Sarah Seven from The Sentimentalist the dreamiest?! We love the soft tulle skirt and the way it effortlessly falls off her shoulders.
