Make You Feel My Love | Lauren and George Tie The Knot

May 21, 2018 Real Weddings

Lauren and George’s beautiful minimalistic wedding captured by Tara Kneiser Photography is the stuff dreams are made of! This couple’s simplistic, Southern wedding mirrored many elements of JFK Jr. and Carolyn Bessette’s wedding, and we are loving it! Lauren and George gave us all the details below!

When did you know you were falling in love?

Did you have a specific theme or design inspiration for your big day?

“JFK Jr. and Carolyn Bessette – I loved how they got married in the simple, white chapel and found that in the Primitive Baptist Chapel in Cade’s Cove. We picked a reception at Blackberry Farm as we both love good food and good wine.”

Tell us about your grand exit!

“We decided not to have a “grand exit”…but we hopped in our golf cart, me, George and Bonnie. It was a full moon night which lit up Blackberry Farm and in the background you could hear the song of a whip-poor-will. It was a perfect way to end our night.” -Lauren
