A Rustic Garden Party Wedding at Indigo Falls Events in Dallas, Georgia

Kristen Sewell (27 and a teacher) had always envisioned an outdoor garden party wedding with a rustic reception full of vintage details. So when it came time to plan her wedding to Jarod Powell (31 and a service adviser), Indigo Falls Events in Dallas, Georgia, was an easy choice. “Without a doubt, it was the perfect wedding venue,” Kristen says. Their ceremony unfolded at the breathtakingly beautiful wooden pergola right on the lake, surrounded by trees and 175 of their closest family and friends. After Kristen and Jarod said “I do,” guests mingled with beverages from the outdoor bar before moving into the wooden barn for the reception. Wedding planner Kelley Garner teamed up with A Perfect Wedding Floral Design to create the vintage garden party vibe Kristen had always wanted with a blush and ivory palette, vintage floral china place settings and lush flowers to match. Kristen and Jarod took the opportunity to express their personalities: During the father-daughter dance, Kristen and her dad tossed tradition and danced to a lighthearted musical mash-up, where Kristen revealed her pink Converse shoes under her lace wedding dress. Jarod wanted to show his love for the University of Georgia, so instead of a groom’s cake, he had a tiered cookie display table filled with UGA Bulldogs memorabilia. And as the evening came to a close, Kristen and Jarod served sweet treats they both enjoy: Dunkin Donuts. Paris Mountain Photography was on hand to capture Kristen and Jarod’s perfect day from start to finish. See below for more details.
