Twin Hearts Photography: Athens Botanical Gardens Wedding

This Fall, I got the chance to work with a fantastic couple who held their ceremony at the Day Chapel in UGA’s Botanical Gardens. A beautiful venue, no matter what season, featuring a natural outdoor setting and an amazing interior space too. Big thanks to Twin Hearts Photography for sharing their stunning photos!

With the Bride’s vision for lots of green and a love of succulents, I created her bouquet blending succulents, mixed varieties of ferns and powdery blue eucalyptus. The Groomsmen wore matching succulent and fern boutonnieres. Sneakers are the Bride’s Nike Dunk Sky Hi Wedges- (makes me want a pair!)

Different shades of green bridesmaid’s dresses paired with the groomsman’s grey suits, looked stellar against a backdrop of yellow leaves. That’s it for now- more to come soon!!!

Best of Wedding Classifieds- Sell Your Wedding Day Decor

Have some left-over decor from your wedding day (like 300 candle votives …)? If you’re thinking of selling them, forget Ebay, and try posting to Wedding Classifieds instead. These Wedding specific websites are pretty popular with Brides, giving you a better chance to sell your stuff.

A Food Truck Wedding with Holy Crepe


This Spring, I got the chance to work on a Food Truck Wedding with Holy Crepe of Athens, Georgia. It was a huge success, to say the least, with amazing food and a fun outdoor vibe. If you want to try them out for yourself, you can find the Holy Crepe Food Truck at Live Wire during the week and, on weekends, at The West Broad Farmer’s Market and Sunday Center Market. The Spring wedding was one of the first large events they participated in, and since then, they have selectively taken on a few more (one event exceeding a thousand guests!). With so many catering opportunities pouring in, I was excited to hear from their owner, Saphir Grici, about his plans for taking on more weddings and events in the upcoming year.
For their catering menu, they’ll continue to offer crepes, featuring a selection of sweet and savory options with choice of fillings. Additionally, they’ll be offering individual French pastries called Caneles (pronounced Can-ay-lay), or as Saphir likes to call them, Cake Brules, for large events. If you like the idea of cupcakes or macaroons over wedding cake, these are a great option to consider. Check out the pics above to see these displayed- I am really looking forward to trying one myself!

You can visit their Facebook Page or website to find Holy Crepe’s weekly truck schedule or to contact them about catering your next event. They’re a great choice for any outdoor or informal occasion- like a laid back rehearsal dinner, engagement party, or barmitzvahs/batmitzvahs. And with football season getting started, they’re a perfect choice for your next tailgating party!
