Blair and Brian’s wedding at the Athens Country Club was an elegant affair and photographer Justin DeMutiis beautifully captured all of the stylish details. Lovelee Affairs created a preppy and fun reception with tables draped in blue and white striped table cloths and place settings adorned with pink party poppers. This couple chose to do a first look, one of my favorite aspects of a wedding, as it gives you a quiet moment alone and produces stunningly emotional images. It’s also amazing the effect it can have on making your wedding day jitters disappear! I just love the monogrammed pillows in the lounge area and the custom corn hole game for guests. (We also saw this last week at Megan + Brett’s wedding!)
Here’s a little about how this couple met, from the bride:
My sorority was hosting a philanthropy basketball tournament and I was assigned to be the coach for Brian’s fraternity. I went to his house to drop off the schedule and Brian answered the door. I thought it was adorable that he shook my hand as he introduced himself. He requested that I bring orange slices and Capri suns so I showed up to the first game with about 10 pounds of each!
