There is something about the mountains in Georgia that hold special magic. Every time I leave my little city and drive up north I feel so much peace and romance as I wind up the foothills. It’s no wonder that so many of my couples choose to say their vows amongst all the trees, rivers and mountains. Haiwassee River Retreat is a perfect destination if this sounds like your kind of wedding day. It’s nestled in a small valley and surrounded by rolling mountains, and the sweetest little river cuts through it steadily.
Currently, all of these mountains are suffering from wildfires and we are even feeling the effects down in the city. Pray for rain for this beautiful place. Luckily, the fires held off until after this lovely said their vows. When they tied the knot the sun was just setting over the hill and it was simply breathtaking. Jessi looked radiant in her gown, and the groomsmen were sporting boutonnières made from hollowed rounds of ammo. It was a perfectly southern affair and it couldn’t have been more beautiful.
