Jennifer and Joshua Haney were married on April 30, 2017 in front of 200 of their closest family and friends.  Their wedding took place at the Del’avant Event Center in Lagrange, Georgia complete with a first look captured at the historic Hills and Dales Estate and Gardens.

On December 4, 2015, after 2 years of dating, Joshua took Jennifer to one of her favorite parks in Atlanta’s Fourth Ward District for what she thought was a holiday photoshoot. Joshua presented Jennifer with a beautiful solitaire diamond ring alongside her daughter Raegan. Needless to say, Jennifer said “YES!”

The couple enjoys traveling around the world and experiencing life together so they chose a theme around their love for travel: “Love is in the Air.”  Their wedding cake was a 4-tiered, 4-flavored cake with a map of the world on one tier.  To enhance the theme, their custom wedding stationery was a travel themed suite which included boarding pass save the dates and wedding invites.  Beautiful white orchids, hydrangeas, and roses graced the ceremony and reception with a classic color palette of ivory, black, and gold.

Wedding Planning From The Coordinated Bride Jennifer

As the bride I took on alot of DIY projects, which caused me alot of unnecessary stress, but it also allowed my to be creative and save alot of money.   Wedding planning brought me and my groom closer and every decision from cake tasting, picking our linen, choosing our vendors and other small details became special moments that we shared together.  When it was all over every moment was well worth it.

Advice for fellow Coordinated Brides

Dont sweat the small stuff, that’s what your wedding coordinator is for.  Enjoy your wedding day and let go and be a bride. During the wedding planning take one day out of the week to enjoy your spouse and not talk about the wedding.  Make decisions and stick to them, don’t second guess yourself.

One interesting thing about this wedding is that the bride wore one dress for the first look with her husband to be and came down the aisle in an entirely different dress and veil!!  She changed back into the “First Look” dress and fascinator for the reception. Love it!
