Kayla + Cory's Dade City Wedding| South Lawn, Antique Barn and Garden House


Kalya and Cory's wedding day was SUCH a blast!

These two had sole use of the property- which means they could take advantage of it ALL! They held their wedding ceremony on the South Lawn, hosted the cocktail hour at the Antique barn and gathered everyone at The Garden House for the reception. 

Kayla was radiant for the big day...

Truly flawless in every way! The bride's gown was purchased at Bridals by Lori- where they film Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta! She took a road trip there with three of her best girls (FUN!)!  You could see her face light up when she was finally able to slip on the gorgeous lace, a-line gown and head out for her first look with Cory.

She told us" My favorite and most memorable part of my wedding day was my first look photos with my now husband."

...We had both been so busy preparing for this wedding and although we are very lucky to have so many close friends (our bridal party had 16 people), everything was happening so fast. The moment he turned around and saw me, it felt as if time had stopped. Everything we had built together and worked so hard for was worth it. We were there together in that moment and it gives me goosebumps anytime I think about it."

After a few photos of the happy bride and groom to be, it was time for their ceremony on the south lawn! The Large Oak was the perfect backdrop for them. Even though they opted for a first look, Cory still teared up when he saw Kayla head down the aisle. Such a great moment! The couple's wedding officiant, Billy Glass, can actually take credit for introducing Kayla + Cory. He's a family friend of theirs who has known Kayla for over 15 years. Talk about sentimental and personal! We love these special details! 

Kayla said "There is no way my wedding would’ve been as fantastic as it was without {the staff at} Stonebridge working together with one of my bridesmaid and best friend, Allie Andrews. They worked tirelessly to make all my dreams come true."

The couple's laid-back reception was all about good food and the party! No guest left hungry, that's for sure.

Kayla's advice to any couples planning on getting married...

"Remember the day is about you and your partner. Don’t forget to take a few breathes and enjoy the party. It will happen in the blink of an eye!"
