Brittany & Shane

Bass Lake Farms
Culbert, Georgia

Their Story

Brittany and Shane first met at a party that Brittany’s brother was hosting a few years ago. After their first date at Andretti’s where they raced go karts, they pretty much knew this was it.

In April 2019, Shane popped the question and Brittany quickly said yes! They started planning the wedding right away!

During the 6 weeks that Brittany and I planned together, I always knew that she was absolutely on top of her to-do’s. We would chat, and she will fill me in on all that she had accomplished since our last call. It was wonderful from a coordinator’s perspective!

Their wedding day displayed their strong love for their families and their laid back sense of style. The venue featured a gorgeous lake, a cabin, and a covered reception area. This was the perfect layout for them since they wanted their family and wedding party to be relaxed and having fun the entire weekend. They played cornhole, stayed in the cabin, and the guys even went fishing!

Wedding Day

On wedding day, Brittany wore a gorgeous, lace ballgown with soft curls pulled into a half up do. The bridesmaids wore knee-length purple dresses with nude colored heels. Both Brittany and the bridesmaids carried bouquets that featured white hydrangeas, babies breath, and lots of greenery. Brittany’s bouquet stood out perfectly with soft tones of lilac, pink, and purple roses.

The guys all wore gray suits with purple ties that matched the bridesmaid dresses. The groomsmen chose a cool, no jacket look and simply sported their gray vests, while Shane looked dapper in his full suit. White roses were the star of the groomsmen boutonnieres, while Shane’s featured a pink rose, adorned with a fishing lure.

Ceremony & Cocktail Hour

The ceremony was on a dock that extended out into the lake. Brittany’s brother constructed the most beautiful arbor that was place in the center of the dock and decorated by their florist. The guests sat on the hill that overlooked the dock in chairs topped with purple chair sashes. The ceremony was brief and intimate and ended with cheers that filled the entire venue.

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour throughout the venue while family and formal photos were taken.

During cocktail hour, our team (with the help of the venue staff) moved the ceremony chairs up to the reception area. The covered reception area was quickly adopted a gorgeous, country dinner ambiance.

The Reception

After cocktail hour and formal pictures came to an end, the guests made their way to the guest tables to find their seats. The wedding party was introduced and Brittany & Shane enjoyed their first dance to “How Long Will I Love You” by Ellie Goulding. The father-daughter and mother-son dances flowed nicely after, then the buffet was opened.

While guests were finishing dinner, toasts were made and even a few tears were shed. We then cut their gorgeous , 3 tiered wedding cake. Oh, and don’t forget about the groom’s cake – it was an awesome fishing-themed cake made just for Shane!

The dance floor was officially opened and it was time to cut a rug! The crowd was absolutely loving the music choices put together by the DJ, who was one of Brittany’s good friends from college. He even got out there a few times to show off his moves!

After the dance floor was good and warmed up, it was time for the bouquet and garter toss. The crowd cheered and laughed until it was time to lineup for send off.

Everyone lined the driveway and cheered their hearts out as Brittany & Shane ran through the twinkling sparklers!

Congratulations to Brittany & Shane!

PS) They are now expecting a sweet baby boy! We cannot wait to see pictures of his little face in January! 🙂
