Colorful Tented Summer Wedding

Summer means colorful blooms and beautiful outdoor celebrations and this one from Magnolia Celebrates captured by Lane Albers Photography! Checking off all the summery boxes, this pair said their “I dos” at their family’s property with their adorable pup by their side. The river side ceremony is absolute magic and a nature lover’s dream!

The wedding was at Chase’s sister’s estate in Stone Mountain, GA on 47 acres. Chase’s sister and brother-in-law Matt and Blaine Keller launched a Glamping venue on their property in 2020. The family converted the lakeside location into the ceremony site and converted the pasture into the reception venue. The goal was to be outside and embrace southern traditions while enhancing the beauty of the family private venue.

Incorporating our dog Murphy, who truly is a best friend companion and was also an engagement gift from Billy to Chase was a favorite memory. Also the ability for our closest friends to stay on site at the different Glamping locations at the family property known publicly as ‘Tents at Ramsden Lake’ added a very unique intimate theme to our wedding weekend! We enjoyed canoes, kayaking, fishing and a fabulous welcome party rehearsal dinner that was unforgettable.

We adorned the property with candles and plants like magnolias and camellias as well as blooming perineal flowers along a private walking path from the ceremony site to the reception site. The goal was for guests to sip a glass of champagne after the ceremony and stroll down a pathway to the reception fun. The plants could be planted later for memories of the wedding weekend. We also began a tradition of burying a nostalgic bottle of bourbon and praying 30 days prior to the wedding to ensure no bad weather!
