Lakeside Wedding in North Georgia // Kylee & Michael

Kylee & Michael’s wed lakeside in North Georgia up in the mountains, which happens to be one of my favorite places ever. They rented an AirBnb, grabbed a small group of loved ones, and had a completely grand time. When they initially reached out, I knew we’d be a great match from their description of their plans. Everything was quirky, casual, and non-traditional. Basically a lake party with a wedding ceremony in the middle. Say no more, I’m there! It was so good to see them again

Getting Ready

We started the day off with some rain plans just in case. Thankfully, while everyone was getting ready across the house from each other, the weather did its thing outside and cleared up exactly in time for the ceremony! The low-hanging clouds made for gorgeous lighting. And, the low fog-like clouds across the mountain views were perfectly in line with the ceremony spot across the lake.

Lakeside Ceremony for North Georgia Wedding

Kylee & Michael wrote their own vows. Of course, they were just like them: clever, hilarious, and heckin’ sweet. After the family photos, I explored the yard with the newlyweds. We took advantage of the beautiful light, views, and the high of having just gotten married. Once inside, it was time to eat and mingle the night away. The downstairs section of the house was made for a good time; there was beer pong and arcade games, pool and ping-pong, awesome bespoke drinks being poured, and tons of great conversation and laughter.

What advice would you give to other couples planning their wedding?

“don’t plan a “wedding” – plan your dream party and then tweak the details at the end to include (or not include) whatever ceremony elements you feel are important or relevant. give your family one detail to be nosey about, appease them, then move the heck on- they will get over it and everyone will have fun with the result!

Wedding Portraits

I stole the couple away one last time as the weather cleared outside after Kylee had changed into a sundress, then left everyone to continue the party! This wedding is such a perfect example of how your wedding can be absolutely anything you want it to be. The entire day felt completely “them.” So reflective of their priorities and what makes them happy, which is the best way to be.
