REAL WEDDING: Will and Hannah’s Sweet & Southern Mansion Wedding

We fell head over heels with this sweet couple and their gorgeously southern wedding, so perfectly captured by Edwards Photography!

We were lucky enough to meet Hannah, this sweet southern bride, when she visited us at The Gilded Gown to search for her wedding dress last year. She wanted a romantic, lace, full-length gown for her upcoming spring wedding. Luckily, that day, with the help of her personal bridal stylist, Hannah was able to find exactly what her heart desired. The bridal design house of Romantic Bridals (fittingly named!), created the dress that fulfilled all her dreams. She also selected a gorgeous single layer lace-edged veil which was the perfect addition to her wedding day ensemble.

Hannah and Will were married on a delightful spring afternoon this past May at Karlan Mansion, a gorgeous antebellum estate located at Wilderness Road State Park in Ewing, Virginia. This historic mansion is beautifully placed in the heart of Appalachia, at the base of the Cumberland Mountains and is surrounded by both history and scenic mountain views. The perfect spot for a southern wedding! Edwards Photography was on hand to capture all the beauty and romance.

Hannah and Will have a heartwarming love story: “We met August 2, 2014 at my best friend and Maid of honor, Jaci’s, wedding. We quickly became best friends and we started “officially” dating October 25, 2015. He proposed to me on February 1, 2017 at The Island in Pigeon Forge in front of the water fountain. He had faked proposed to me so many times I didn’t believe that he was actually proposing to me until I saw the ring. I told him “No!” about four times. followed by “Really?” which resulted in a very ecstatic “YES!” It couldn’t have been a more perfect day. Even though it was February it was 75 degrees out and the sunset was perfect! It was a day I will never forget and always cherish!”–Hannah

They chose each other. xo

The love and devotion of this sweet couple is evident in every moment captured at their wedding.

We are absolutely obsessed with the lush florals and greenery by Judy’s Flowers and Gifts  that decorated the day. From the bouquets, to the decor, to the cake and Hannah’s amazing headpiece. All so gorgeous! Like, these giant hoops:

The lovely cake topper:

And, this spectacular bouquet!!!!!

And, the bridal headpiece, which is everything:

We are pretty certain that this wedding had the most precious flower girl in history, too:

Hannah and Will’s wedding party looked awesome as well. The maids shined in their gowns by ColsBM:

And the guys looked adorable in their suits (and bow ties) by Belk:

The wedding had so many sweet southern touches. Like the coke favors! After all, what is more southern than an ice cold coke, in a glass bottle on a warm spring day?

Hannah and Will your special day was amazing! We wish you the brightest, happiest future as Mr. and Mrs. as you walk towards the future!
