Real Wedding | Intimate Southern Wedding on the Lake

Kristin + Jeremy

I first met Kristen at the very first Gather workshop here in Athens, hosted and attending by some awesome lady creatives. Once I officially started Whitewood Events, Kristen and I had the opportunity to work and collaborate on many projects. I think we became fast friends and both respected each other's work and enjoyed the entire process together. The minute I received the email that she wanted us to help her create her dream wedding, I literally jumped up and down! Not only is she one of the kindest souls I've ever had the pleasure of knowing, she is also one talented artist. (Take note of the hand dyed textiles from the napkins at each setting and the silk runners!)

Kristen and Jeremy celebrated with friends and close family on her family's property on the lake. Once they said their vows, they enjoyed a family style dinner under the stars and danced into the evening. You've never seen such a happy and grateful group to have each other and just thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful occasion.

Jeremy proved he is possibly one of the most thoughtful groom's I've ever had the chance of assisting down the aisle, since he surprised Kristen with the getaway car of her dreams, and her reaction at the end of the night was priceless. We love these two to the moon and back! Greenville, South Carolina, you have a wonderful couple in Kristin and Jeremy, and we welcome you to Athens, whenever you can visit!
