If you read our last post, you know how much we adore the Peachtree House, so we
were thrilled when we were asked to be a part of Nikole and Joe’s romantic
wedding there on Saturday! Nikole has known the owners, Ashlie and Hugh Darley,
of the Peachtree House for years and is practically another sister to their
daughters, it was evident her wedding was especially dear to their hearts.
Nikole and Joe were on a tight budget, but that didn’t mean compromised service
or elegance for their January wedding.
When we arrived, all members of the Darley family were helping to rake the
leaves, hang the lights, place the tables, spray the sidewalks and make sure
every area from the entry to the farthest edge of the estate was ready for the
big day. It was a family affair and heartwarming to see the passion they poured
into making sure everything was just right for Nikole.
The ceremony took place on the back lawn facing the house. We hung seeded
eucalyptus, magnolia leaf garlands with brunia and ivory roses on the back two
chairs and placed two urns of hydrangea at the alter to frame their picture
perfect ceremony. In the reception area, Nikole chose a beautiful gray linen
that looked lovely with centerpieces made of green moss, orchids, and
candelabras surrounded by votives for extra warmth. We dressed the sweetheart
table in a similar manner and hung additional garlands across their chairs.
Market lights were hung overhead to add additional light and sparkle! After
dinner, guests discovered sweet details on the cake table, which was decorated
with eucalyptus, brunia, and ivory spray roses.
Best wishes to the new Mr. & Mrs. Churchville!
