Sarah Black (21 and a student) and Nate Black (29 and in the US Army) had touches of Georgia throughout their wedding, from the soft peach hues to vintage Coca-Cola bottles at cocktail hour. Even their venue, Variety Works, a refined rustic venue in Madison, Georgia, had plenty of Southern charm. Their day unfolded with an outdoor ceremony underneath a pergola in Variety Works's naturally beautiful space. Their Christian faith was the focal point: Sarah and Nate took Communion together and played songs that reflected them as a couple. Right after Sarah and Nate said “I do,” guests enjoyed refreshing lemonade and vintage-style Coca-Cola bottles on the lawn, followed by a reception in the old wooden warehouse, where elegant chandeliers and wall sconces created a romantic vibe. Le Petit Jardin created soft, romantic floral arrangements to accent vintage decor, overflowing with barn-wood boxes, lanterns and mason jars. But Judah Press Entertainment really brought the party: There was music playing and dancing all night. Claire Diana Photography was on hand to capture the sweet details of the day, below.

For a rustic, vintage wedding, Sarah and Nate's invitations were perfect in every way. The lace details on the neutral backdrop blended with elegant typography to completely embody their wedding style.
Sarah's bouquet included subtle pastel hues of peaches mixed with light blues and greens. It had peach garden roses, bellflowers, stock, mini hydrangeas, thistles and—for a truly Georgia touch—peach hypericum berries.
The bridesmaids wore one-shoulder floor-length dresses in a light peach hue—perfect for a Georgia wedding.
Nate's succulent boutonniere matched his light gray suit, while peach hypericum berries added a classic Georgian touch.
Sarah wore a pretty embellished floral hairpiece in her romantic bridal updo, matching her beaded dress and adding extra elegance to her already sophisticated style.
