The Bride Melissa Cattaneo, 30, owner of Hip Pops, a popsicle company in Georgia The Groom George Fontaine, 30, marketing and A&R director at New West Records in Georgia The Date May 28 Working with a clean white base palette and pops of navy and yellow in the details, Melissa and George strove for a “gorgeous backyard party with a modern aesthetic.” Also, a running theme of chevron—from the guys’ ties to the reception table linens—gave the overall design a cohesive feel.

Melissa's cousin's two daughters carried white pomanders hung from navy ribbons.
Crisp white linens (with custom blue chevron runners) were just enough for the outdoor setting.
A lush entrance arrangement adorned the doors to the same church where Melissa's parents were married 33 years earlier.
Navy ribbons softened the rectangular programs.
The girls held single yellow peony blooms.
The couple commissioned a fun cake to play up their shared hobby of visiting Waffle House locations across the country!
A collection of vases and loosely arranged flowers brought a vintage twist to the more contemporary chevron table runners.
Simple billy balls coordinated with the guys' chevron ties.
Melissa carried open white peonies with accents of viburnum and lilies of the valley.
