Introducing our beautiful bride, Amanda!

Her late fall wedding at County Line Orchard was so gorgeous and we are so excited to show you!

Amanda chose a stunning fitted Mon Cheri gown and accented it with Susan G Allen and Sara Gabriel accessories!

She also looked SO cute in her shawl, which kept her warm on her big day!

We may be just a little {fine a lot} obsessed with Amanda’s gorgeous bouquet by Lake Effect Floral Design Studio!

Y’all that pop of Protea is everything!!

Amanda had a small angel added to her bouquet in memory of her grandfather.

Amanda and her hubby Nick wanted to share a special moment before the ceremony began.

Loryn Eaton Photography was on hand to capture their first look…

This sweet couple was married in the barn at County Line and it was truly a beautiful ceremony!

We are loving their arch and floral accents SO much!

After the ceremony guests were treated to a beautiful reception.

More gorgeous flowers, a delish cake and super cute decor transformed the barn into a truly special reception space!

Gotta love an orchard wedding!!

How did these lovebirds meet, anyway??

“Nick and I meet through mutual friends. I guess you can say they set us up.”

How did Nick pop the question?

“He proposed to me on a fishing trip in Tennessee. We were on the dock one night after dinner when he asked it was perfect.”

Did she have a feeling it was coming or was it a total surprise?

“A surprise! It was the middle of vacation, and I didn’t see it coming at all. We had already done some of the big touristy things earlier in the week where I thought maybe it could happen.”

After the ring comes the next most important thing - the dress!

“Shopping for my dress was easily one of the best wedding experiences. I went in thinking I wanted one style and walked out with something completely different. I loved my dress! I had my mom and sister with me when I tried on the dresses. In all it was just a great experience!”
How did Amanda know her dress was the one??

“I loved my dress! I knew I wanted a simple, but lace dress. I had no idea how many different shades of white there would be. I didn’t pick out my dress the stylist working with me did. She just kept pulling dresses similar to ones I had already tried on and they just kept getting better til I fell in love with the one.”

Let’s move on to wedding planning! What was Amanda’s fave part of planning her big day?

“Planning was fairly easy, we knew where we wanted our wedding and when. It was at the County Line Apple Orchard in the fall so it was pretty easy to build off of that. I enjoyed shopping around for the details. I wanted a shabby chic fall wedding with beautiful flowers.”

Was there any part of planning she wasn’t a fan of?

“My least favorite part of planning was the time in the middle between all the work in the beginning of planning and all the work the last few months before the wedding. I felt like I should be doing something. And the headache of having a vendor go out of business a few months prior to our wedding.”

Finally it was time to get married! What was Amanda’s favorite part of her special day?

“I loved getting to see my husband at our first look! It was just as exciting and emotional to see him all dressed up! And, our vows we wrote our own it was perfectly us!”

Any advice for brides currently planning their own wedding?

“My best advice is the last few weeks before the wedding are crazy busy, make sure to still make time for yourself but also for your fiancé. Go out for dinner, work out, or whatever you haven’t been able to do lately because it gets busy.”

Congrats, Amanda and Nick!! We are so happy for you guys!!
