Fall is starting to make its appearance in Chicago – it’s a little nippy but clear outside, everyone is wearing light jackets, and I need to get my boots re-heeled! In light of all the gorgeousness that is my favorite season, we have an amazing fall wedding today from Almasy Photography.
Our bride and groom: the absolutely adorable Joni and Chip. Joni is an industrial designer and Chip is a web and graphic designer so they put their skills to work to create a completely unique event!
Joni and Chip held their wedding at Joni’s father’s farm in Ellaville, GA. A screen-printed sign led the way from the outer road.
The tractor hanger on the farm was renovated into one of the most unique ceremony and reception sites I have ever seen!
After getting ready…
… the two lovebirds saw eachother before the ceremony. These shots are so classic – I’m a BIG fan of couples seeing eachother before!
The stunning florals were created by Leon Holloway. I especially adore the cotton boutonnieres – such a great southern touch! The couple also created their own pattern for fabric manufactured just for their wedding party to be used as sashes and bow ties!
During the renovation of the hangar, beautifully restored windows were hung from the ceiling to create the backdrop for the ceremony.
All of the small details really worked together to create a wonderful overall feel. Chandeliers combined with galvanized pails of Coca-Cola and screen printed signs…. Sigh. Melody Burke worked with the bride and groom to coordinate the day and make sure things went off without a hitch!
Berries and mason jars are oh-so-chic for fall, and again, the galvanized steel was brought into the equation which added such a feeling of rustic elegance.
And of course, a fun time was had by all at the reception.
Anne, thank you so much for sharing this wedding with us – all of the personal touches combined with the bride and grooms’ talents melded into the perfect fall affair! More photos from Joni and Chip’s wedding can be found on the Almasy blog!
