Sweet, Family, DIY wedding at Rabun Manor in Dillard, Ga

Kelsey & Javan’s Sweet Summer Georgia Wedding by Cariad Photography

I love a good Southern wedding! Georgia is also such a wonderful state. The scenery is beautiful, the people are pleasant, and you always feel a positive energy. (The food is always a plus as well!)
Kelsey and Javan were married on June 29, 2013 in Dillard, Georgia. I fell in love with this wedding as soon as I saw the bride. She looked so amazing! Everything about her was stunning but her necklace was absolutely my fave. So bold and different. I always love an elegant twist to tradition. The bridesmaids looked awesome with different styles of dresses. I really like this idea because every bridesmaid gets to wear the dress that suits her best. This wedding also had so many DIY elements. (And you know how much I love DIY!) From the bridesmaids making their own bouquets to the Aunts, Cousins and Grandma’s baking an assortment of cakes, this wedding was truly a family affair.
I can’t not saying anything about the beauty of their wedding venue. Rabun Manor is everything I would want as my own wedding venue. When I think about hosting an elegant Southern wedding, this is it! It was built in 1846 and it’s surrounded by 3 national forests. The next time I’m down in Georgia, I think I found my place to stay. The manor is truly spectacular.
