A Sophisticated Tented Wedding at Capital City Club in Atlanta, Georgia

Seagrass, linen, marble, wood and silver details lent a textured twist to Kelli Sherrill (27 and a professional equestrian) and Josh Gibson's (28 and a real estate developer) sophisticated yet informal tented reception. Boxwood arrangements added warmth to the church ceremony, where Kelli walked down the aisle with a rosary that had been blessed at the Sistine Chapel. “I carried it in my bouquet,” she says of the papal gift from her parents. “The priest then wrapped our hands in a symbolic knot with it and prayed.”

“I knew I definitely didn’t want a seated dinner or anything too formal,” Kelli says of foregoing a traditional meal in favor of seasonal food stations. Once the celebration was underway, the newlyweds invited their college mascot to join them in dancing to Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama.”
