The Bride Sophie Patent, 28, legislative director at Dutko Poole McKinley
The Groom William Smith, 28, assistant vice president at Capital City Bank
The Date December 10
With more than 400 guests, Sophie and William knew it would be difficult to find a venue large enough in the Tallahassee area. So when friends offered to host the wedding at their plantation home, the couple jumped at the chance -- and designed their day to complement the southern-style property. Natural hues and rustic details harmonized beautifully with the setting.
