A Natural, Backyard Wedding at a Private Residence in Trenton, Georgia

After first meeting at a friend's Christmas party, Rachel Dyer (27 and a paralegal) and Brent Allred (26 and an insurance broker) married at the bride's family farm with Lookout Mountain as their backdrop. The rustic yet elegant approach to their wedding day led Rachel to dub their style "into the woods." "The farm is my happy place, since it's where I feel most at home," Rachel says of the sentimental setting where Brent proposed. An aerial shot of the farm accompanied the calligraphed invitations, and Brent donned a guinea feather boutonniere and feather bow tie for a rustic twist on his accoutrement. The newlyweds cut into a six-tier, amaretto-flavored, buttercream cake topped with their family crest and handmade sugar leaves. As a nod to Brent's alma mater, his custom groom's cake replicated in miniature and edible form, The Grove, the tailgating mecca at the University of Mississippi.—Caroline Eubanks
