When it came time for this Bride to pick her bridesmaids dresses, she opted for dusty blue floral version from Amsale and the result is so dang pretty. It's classic with a little twist and fits right in with this Belmont Manor garden affair planned by Lemon & Lime Event Design and decked out in blooms by Lucky Penny Floral. Pore through this stunning day captured by Lynn Dunston, plus even more right here.

From the Designer...The lily pond, canopies of trees, and surrounding gardens of Belmont Manor were the perfect backdrop for Emily and Mike’s understated, yet elegant wedding. To complement the natural beauty of the manor, the couple incorporated clean, minimalistic décor. Emily, who is the owner of the paper boutique and design studio Anchor Point Paper Co., created beautiful botanical stationery, along with custom calligraphy wood signage for the wedding. The gorgeous invitation suite included the absolute sweetest personalized illustration of the bride and the groom. Other details of the day included a delicate lace BHLDN gown, all-white florals by Lucky Penny Floral, and a ceremony under two large Magnolia trees in the manor’s lower garden followed by a white tent reception. The couple enlisted Lemon and Lime Event Design to help make sure their wedding weekend ran smoothly and that no detail was missed. All of the sweet moments of the day were captured by Lynn Dunston.

From the bride…Mike and I met in college. Our mutual friends introduced us. We were friends for about a year or so first, and then all of a sudden we both realized we were into each other! We both fell hard and fast and then the rest was history! We LOVE Chick-fil-A and eat it all the time. Mike proposed to me by hiding the ring in my Chick-fil-A nugget box! We chose navy and dusty blue as our wedding colors with all white flowers. Overall, most of our décor was very simple and understated. The gardens and grounds of Belmont Manor are so beautiful, we really wanted to let them shine!

From the photographer…If I had to describe Emily and Mike in one word, it would be “FUN!” Mike and Emily both love dogs so I love that we were able to capture Mike with his dogs at his family home where he and his groomsmen dressed on the wedding day. Photographing the guys horsing around on the basketball court was an extra bonus! Emily and Mike’s wedding was the perfect combination of fun and elegant. There was so much warmth and joy from family and friends surrounding Emily and Mike on their special day. The couple included a memorial table dedicated to those close that they have lost, and Emily tied a photo charm around her bouquet in memory of her late father, which was so endearing to capture.
