The wedding festivities and accommodations for the family and wedding party were held at Hawkesdene in Andrews, North Carolina.
The venue was incredible!
Britt and Andrea chose the perfect venue for their taste and desires for their special occasion.
The main house was the perfect mix of modern meets classic tied in with a delicate balance of masculinity and femininity.
Glazed stone floors flowed into wide planked hardwood floors.
Exposed beams stretched across an open great room and grand piano.
Massive silver candelabras towered over a vast dining room table and dough bowl.
There were so many unique spaces to sit and relax, read, or take in the lush green views of the mountainside.
The food service was outstanding with fresh ingredients and gourmet recipes.
Honestly, I could go on for days.
Our room was amazing!
Ms. Bebe, the mother of the groom and a woman after my own heart...seriously, I love this woman more than words. She has blessed me more than she realizes over the years and I am thankful for her.
Mrs. Sally, the beautiful and talented mother of the bride was is so sweet and precious and it was such a pleasure getting to know her.
This is where the rehearsal dinner took place.
It was a fabulous atmosphere.
Britt asking the blessing...normally my head would be bowed, but I could not resist capturing such a sweet moment for this couple and family.
All of the food was prepared on site and it was divine!
Those brownies were out of this world. I could have eaten the entire plate, but I showed restraint.
Britt's sweet Nana, Ms. Bebe's mother. She is a gem and a true Southern belle from Augusta.

The beautiful bride and groom! Loved her dress!
These two have been best friends pretty much since they could crawl.
I love Andrea and I am so happy that she and Britt found each other!
She is just fabulous all the way around!

We all cleaned up fairly well after our white water rafting adventure earlier in the day!
The day could not have been any better or more special.
