Kristin and Simon's
Relaxed, Outdoor Wedding

With colourful parasols and blazing sunshine, Kristin and Simon's outdoor wedding certainly was fun and carefree. I love their sense of adventure in their shots below, kindly sent to me by Johanna Lakin Photography.

Kristin's from Atlanta, Georgia in the US and met Simon on a wild night out downtown. He was simply on a one night pass as he's a Captain in the US army - hence the uniforms, which reminds so much of the film 'An Officer and a Gentleman'. They struck up a conversation and the rest, let's say is history.

The aim of their day was to ensure that all their guests relaxed and enjoyed themselves. There was no pretence, no designer dress and no particular theme - just a good old fashioned knees-up.

What struck me was the simplicity and relaxed atmosphere of their wedding. I suppose when you take over a venue for a weekend and the wedding party are on-site, you can relax and enjoy your wedding a lot more.

They hired out Gin Greek in Hartsfield, Georgia, a venue set up for outside weddings. I love the parasols!

Kristin said "The wedding was really one big party with all of the people that we love the most. The parasols and splashes of colour really brought everything to life. The details were planned with every guest in mind (water at the wedding site, fli-flops and cold clothes to help with the heat as well as hand fan). Everything was done to cater to our guests and ensure they had an incredible time and knew how much they meant to us. We were flattered that so many people travelled as far as they did to celebrate our day with us."
