There’s just something about Dahlonega!

Other than being my favorite city ever, coming back to celebrate a college friend just warmed my heart! Ashleigh and Josh tied the knot surrounded my family, friends, and mountains at Bull Mountain Lodge. Tucked up into the Georgia mountains this rustic venue was the perfect backdrop for their “I dos”!

My all time favorite thing about their big day was the connection between Ashleigh and Josh. It. Was. Perfect. A connection so incredible that Nicholas Sparks could write a book about it. The way he looked at her MELTED my heart! They are both so incredible together and seeing his reaction to her coming down the aisle definitely had everyone emotional!

Another one of my favorite parts of their big day? Chick-fil-a! Both her and Josh LOVE Chick-fil-a so it only made sense to have some of that deliciousness present at their wedding! With Chick-fil-a on one side of the buffet and a taco bar on the other, it was my dream wedding buffet. I could use for some more taco bars in my life!

Check out all of the love on Ashleigh and Josh’s big day and his amazing reaction to seeing her come down the aisle! <3
