Jobs in real estate brought together Andrea Diaz (30) and Nacho Diego (30), who worked together at an apartment complex. The two began dating and Nacho later proposed during a road trip in Sedona, Arizona. While searching for their dream venue in Adairsville, the pair immediately fell in love with Barsnley Resort. “The contact with nature and the classic atmosphere made this place perfect for us to celebrate our union with the people we love,” Andrea says. After exchanging vows in a garden ceremony that was translated into Spanish by their pastor, the newlyweds celebrated in a tented reception filled with fresh florals, neutral draping and elegant chandeliers. “I was such a lucky bride to have the honor to be able to create such a lovely and dreamy reception,” Andrea says.—Caroline Eubanks

Andrea found her wedding dress at Winnie Couture and fell in love with the silk fabric, pearl accents and beading. The tail added a dramatic effect when she walked down the aisle.
Nacho panicked when he couldn't find his tie, but Andrea had sewn a special message into it before the ceremony. His mother brought it to him, which was a special surprise before walking down the aisle.
“Our forever starts today” was sewed on a heart into the ties of Nacho and their fathers. Andrea wanted it to be a surprise, so the groom almost panicked because he couldn't find his tie.
The shoes coordinated with the invitation suite, created by Ashley Buzzy Lettering and Press in Atlanta, Georgia. The design featured floral illustrations and a monogram seal.
The groom had a white boutonniere pinned to his lapel, while the best man and the fathers wore a boutonniere featuring ivory rose with a blush center and a leaf accent.
Andrea and Nacho didn't see each other before the walk down the aisle, so she surprised him by having someone play the song "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri, a favorite of the couple.
The archway covered in garland served as the altar for the ceremony, which was in both English and Spanish so every guest could understand and take part in the wedding.
Among the arrangements were ivory and pale pink hydrangeas, green mini hydrangeas, blush pink roses, blush pink lisianathus, white stock, lush assorted greenery and hanging green amaranthus.
Menus, linens and table settings all reflected the day's palette. The menus had the same design as the invitations, and guests were given a jar of honey as a gift.
Unique Floral Expressions created all the arrangements, including the garlands around the "Mr." and "Mrs." chairs at the head table at the reception at Barnsley Resort in Adairsville, Georgia.
A garland of greenery hung around the cake table, which matched the plant life featured in the ruins for the cocktail hour. Lanterns and strands of white dendrobium orchids were also added.
Bird cake toppers were added to the cake, made locally by Honeymoon Bakery in Rome, Georgia. The color and design were inspired by details from Andrea's dress.
Andrea's earrings were gifts from her future mother- and father-in-law, while the necklace she wore was a day-of gift from her soon-to-be husband, Nacho.
The ruins of the former Barnsley estate come to life at night, when lights cover the brick. The home was built by Godfrey Barnsley for his wife, who died shortly after it was built. It serves as a monument to their love story.
Instead of rice or birdseeds, the couple were showered in flower petals as they left their reception to begin their new life together.
