Welcome to the Wedding Story of Carli and Avery. Their Summer Style Wedding took place in classic Watkinsville, Georgia. There are many beautiful Wedding Venues in this historic heartland, but for the Bridal Couple, Hadden Estate at DGD Farms was simply perfect. This unique Wedding Venue only 10mins from Athens, is a picturesque 25 acre working Blueberry Farm. Enjoy this blog which highlights the Wedding Details and Venue. The Portraits were made easy with gorgeous scenery and a stunning Bridal Couple.
Carli and Avery are a fun, genuine, down to earth, and madly in love, Married Couple!! Mr and Mrs Harrison! Avery proposed to Carli on top of Breckenridge Colorado, after two months of dating. They had gone out with each other, 5 years ago for 1 year and then went their separate ways, only to find love again last summer. Check out their parking deck engagement session here >
Carli looked beautiful, in her silhouette satin crepe, spaghetti strap, plunging back Bridal dress. The satin covered buttons made their way from her lower back to the floor, where the puddle length train fell elegantly around her. With a sophisticated low style bun and gorgeous pearl hairpin, Carli took Grace and Beauty to next level. Avery’s emerald, green velvet coat and black pants and tie looked 10 out of 10. Their Gucci shoes are first class and I love that they also had a casual Gucci pair for their Engagement photoshoot. These guys love their family and friends, so no surprise that on their Wedding Day they had 11 Bridesmaids and 11 Groomsmen. They all looked fantastic in their black and white color palette.
Address: 1150 Cliff Dawson RD, Watkinsville, GA 30677.
