Lakeside Love for



The perfect blend of Southern charm and rustic elegance, Brittany and Nelson's wedding was illuminated by candlelight, softened by lush floral, and anchored with personal detail. The lake views and autumn colors of nature were the perfect backdrop for an autumn wedding in the North Georgia Mountains.

The color palette was composed of neutral whites + creams and accented with a rich mulberry. Bridesmaids dresses, the bridal bouquet, calligraphy + signature cocktail also had pops of deep red. Dark grey suits and pale grey napkins balanced with other creamy linens and to soften the space. Wood + metal lanterns enhance the lake view ceremony, adding a touch of sparkle to bring the design together.

The bride’s bouquet will be a reflection of the entire color story, organic and flowy in nature. As the lake was the ceremony backdrop, the "altar" was a simple installation of hand chopped wood stumps accented with candlelight. For the reception, two types of dinner tables: half with a lantern centerpiece, bud vases, and candlelight; the other half, a low lush arrangement in footed mercury glass vessel, also with votives. The evening ended with guests dancing and having bundt cakes for dessert in the lodge-like Clubhouse. 


The Team



Kind Words
from the Bride

Kristine was recommended to us from a family friend. From the moment my mom and I met with Kristine, we knew she was the perfect person to help us plan our wedding. She not only helped with day of coordination but she helped me design my dream wedding. She listened to what I wanted and suggested ideas that went along with what I envisioned. Wedding planning can definitely be overwhelming but she made sure that we took care of everything that we needed to do along the way and she took care of everything else. The day of the wedding could not have gone more perfectly. All we had to do was show up and enjoy every minute of that day and we were able to do just that because of Simply Charming Socials. 


Kind Words from the Father of the Bride

My daughter was married at Big Canoe in Jasper, GA. My wife and daughter selected Kristine from Simply Charming Socials as a wedding coordinator. What a great find! This was our first "rodeo" and Krisitine handled the event tremendously well! The pre-planning paid off! We expected "hiccups" along the way, but if they occurred, she covered them so they were invisible to us. It was truly one of the best days of our lives! Kristine not only met with us numerous times before the wedding (As well as numerous email communications) but was there on the wedding day before us and stayed until we had left. She coordinated all of the team and provided a flawless event. It was a choreographed celebration from start to finish. I only wish I had another daughter to repeat that day again!!!???
