Richie and Sarah Burnett Wedding | The Mercantile | Georgia

Sara and Richie met six years ago at work.  Richie proposed last year atop a mountain in a snowstorm outside of Breckenridge, Colorado.

They were wed in a small garden in the town of Colbert.  The reception followed at 4th and 4th (the old mercantile). The florals were composed of white tulips and hydrangeas, cotton pods, peach and grey roses, magnolia leaves, leucadendron, pieris, seeded eucalyptus, dusty blue globe thistle, and burgundy scabiosa.

The eve of my 30th birthday was spent with these clients-and I’m so happy I decided to do so.  They throw a great party and are simply fun to be with.  It was double the celebration.

I was also introduced to this gorgeous, eclectic and vintage venue-owned by Ellyn Trinrud and her husband.  They have been avid designers and collectors for years and their space is stunning.  There’s talk of a balcony and a terrace next year.  Ellyn had an uncanny resemblance to Diane Keaton in her adorable menswear attire and her quirky personality.  Their home and venue is a work of art.

All were in tears when Sara came down the aisle, escorted by her father.

I love the turn of the century, daguerreotype portraits of Richie.  There are some fun dancing shots below and a black and white of the sweet couple, taken during their last dance.

Take in the beauty below and leave them some love!

Blessings to you both!

Special thanks to Kiersten Hammock for second shooting.
