A Rustic, Vintage Wedding at the Barn on Belmont in Athens, Georgia
With their vision of a serene outdoor wedding and a laid-back candlelight dinner in mind, Ashley Galletta (28 and a speech-language pathologist) and Jonathan Clinton (34 and a professor) hosted their intimate wedding at the Barn on Belmont in Athens, Georgia. “When we first visited the barn, we were enamored with the large pecan trees surrounding the property and knew that we wanted to be married under one of those trees,” Ashley says. Their ceremony took place outdoors, followed by a laid-back reception in the restored rustic barn, where Ashley and Jonathan played their own music through a sound system. The Barn on Belmont's owner, Debbie Benson, helped Ashley and Jonathan achieve every detail with her decorative expertise. A palette based in navy with accents in gold, ivory, rose and champagne added to the sweet ambience, while vintage decor tied all parts of the day together. Ashlie Johnson of Bud and Bloom created pretty flower arrangements, from Ashley’s bouquet to wreaths on the rustic doors framing the ceremony and even super-romantic baby’s-breath-covered chandeliers in the barn. As the sun set and the string lights flipped on, guests moved outdoors to roast marshmallows by the bonfire. “We kept our night very relaxed, fun for everyone and free of any scheduled activities,” Ashley says.
