Taylor and Austin’s relationship began with walks together on the Beltline and, on a beautiful day in May, culminated with a walk down the aisle.
255 Milledge in Athens offered a charming atmosphere for this couple’s dream wedding day. The historic estate and gardens of the venue perfectly set the scene for this intimate backyard dinner party vibe. Bringing it all together, whimsical florals and butterfly thematics painted a lively springtime picture.
Taylor meticulously curated the day’s details, emphasizing pastel hues and layered vintage patterns. The bride decorated the tables with carefully collected china and colored glassware she sourced from antique stores across Atlanta. Austin also contributed to the decor curation, working alongside Taylor to craft custom seating charts, a welcome sign and corn hole boards, demonstrating their perfect partnership.
With Taylor and Austin pursuing MBAs from the University of Georgia, “Dawgs on Top” thematics were pervasive throughout the reception. Embroidered caps, pompoms in the school colors and even a special appearance from the beloved Hairy Dawg mascot showcased their collegiate pride. The dance floor remained alive and vibrant, thanks to the infectious energy of their guests and the fantastic tunes curated by Hip & Hitched.
Taylor and Austin’s wedding was not just a celebration of their love but also a reflection of their personalities. The event radiated with laughter, joy, and the genuine essence of who they are — two individuals deeply in love, surrounded by friends and family.
