An Inside Look at a College-Football Inspired, Elegant Southern Wedding


My brother and sister-in-law just got married a couple of months ago or so and the wedding was to die for! Both Brent and Hayley lived in Athens, Georgia (home of the Georgia Bulldogs) during their college years, so the city and the university are near and dear to their hearts. Hayley did such an amazing job putting together a seriously gorgeous, southern charmed wedding with little touches of the team they both love, so I had to give you guys an inside look. Get ready for wedding envy in 3… 2… 1…

The Gifts

Hayley picked out a gift with several sweet items for Brent, but one of my favorites was a pair of University of Georgia cufflinks that he’ll cherish forever!


If you want to sob a little, take a look at one of the gifts that the groom got for his bride… a beautiful white bible, with her new name inscribed on it.


Or these absolutely adorable mother-of-the-bride and father-of-the-bride gifts!



Getting Ready

I’m so obsessed with these blue hydrangea robes that Hayley gave to her bridesmaids and Tame Style Bar did an amazing job dolling them up!



The Ceremony

The ceremony was held at the iconic, UGA Chapel, located on the North Campus of the University of Georgia.


And of course, they had to officially seal their marriage with a celebratory ringing of the Chapel Bell!



The Reception

H & B’s reception was held at the Taylor-Grady House just outside of downtown Athens.


The food was catered by the Athens’ favorite, Mama’s Boy, and boyyyy was it good!


And yes… this cake was as perfect as it appears.


Not to mention, she didn’t leave one detail untouched, from photos of their parents’ wedding days to mercury glass decor and hydrangeas and greenery galore.



UGA Inspiration

Now for the Georgia Bulldog touches you’ve been dying to see. 🙂


This Groom’s cake by Callie’s Cakes. ❤ ❤ ❤

A visit from Hairy Dawg!!


And of course an exit with red and black poms and Georgia themed music!


And did I mention that even though it rained almost all day that it was still one of the most fun weddings I’ve ever been to and this bride stayed as gorgeous and sweet as ever?!


So what do you think? Are you as in love as I was?

Congrats to Brent & Hayley – I’m so excited to see what your lives have in store!

C’est la vie,
