A Beautiful Wedding Celebration

My son Chip, married his beautiful sweetheart, Nancy, on Sunday!  I know I don’t often share family pictures on BNOTP but since so many folks e-mailed or left comments before the wedding requesting to see some, I’m sharing a few today.

Chip and Nancy chose the historic Chapel on the campus of the University of Georgia as the location for their wedding.  They met here at UGA so this place holds lots of beautiful memories for them.

A couple of photos of the Chapel from UGA’s website:

 

 

I arrived early the day of the rehearsal and snapped a couple of pics inside.

 

The Chapel was built in 1832 and as you walk across the wonderful old floors, they creak and moan with history.  It’s just the neatest sound and it transported me back to my college days at Mercer in Macon.

 

The 17′ x 23′ oil painting shown here in the Chapel, depicts the “Interior of St. Peter’s Rome” per the UGA website about the painting and restoration.  It was completed in 1847 by George Cooke.  It looks much better in person…looks washed out in my photos.

Here’s the bride-to-be discussing some details with her wedding planner.  Nancy made the dress she wore to the rehearsal and it was absolutely gorgeous.  She also made the red sash and all the flowers/decorations adorning it.  That girl can sew!

 

More discussions between the bride and groom during the rehearsal.  Everyone kept looking up at the ceiling in my pics…not sure what they were talking about.

 

The bride and her dad made a trial run down the aisle.

 

After rehearsal, I snapped these photos outside behind the Chapel.

 

Wedding Day!

 

I snapped one photo during the ceremony and then put the camera down so I could enjoy the moment.  I pretty much cried the entire time…it was ridiculous how emotional it all was for me. I almost started crying again just creating this post.  Gaaah!  I was a basket case all day!

The Bride and Groom chose a Red and Black color scheme…the colors of the University of Georgia where they met and where they were married.

 

Afterwards, I snapped a few candid shots.  You’ll see the photographer in the pics since I stayed back behind her and out of her way.

 

The Bride and Groom rang the Chapel bell after the wedding, a long held tradition.  Afterwards they enjoyed a little time to savor the moment with a limo ride around Athens.

 

The old bell tower (along with the bell) dating back to 1913, had to be removed from the top of the Chapel.  The tower apparently weathered so much it could no longer safetly hold the 700 lb bronze bell.  So a new tower was built behind the Chapel to hold the bell.

 

The UGA website states, “…physical plant workers spent many hours building a new tower, which closely resembles the original in height (40 feet) and shape.”

 

After all the photo taking and festivities were finished at the church, the Bride and Groom had a romantic dinner alone, while the wedding party and guests headed over to the historic Foundry Park Inn and Spa for cocktails under the pavilion.  I think the bride and groom having dinner is a new tradition.  I’m not sure if they actually did that but that’s what I was told by someone.  The wedding started at 3:30 PM and went on until almost 11:00 PM.  It didn’t seem that long…everything went by so quickly.

Photo from The Foundry Spa and Inn Website

 

The wedding reception/dinner was inside the historic Foundry itself.  You can see the old brick walls.  The bride and groom shared their first dance as husband and wife.

 

The Groom spied Mom snapping a pic. :)

 

Sniff…I was a mess all night.

 

Father and Bride love to dance and had so much fun!

 

One of Nancy’s sisters had requested photos of Chip growing up…from baby stage to college age.  She put together the sweetest video (accompanied with music) of the two of them.  You could have heard a pin drop in the room.  The music was so perfect and so moving with the photographs.  Some photos were cute, some made you laugh and some just ripped your heart right out.  It was truly beautiful.

Cutting the cake…

 

That’s the wedding planner in red in the background.

 

Missed taking a pic of the bouquet being tossed but I did capture a groomsman catching the garter.

 

Happy Bride and Groom…

 

They are currently floating in a huge pool in the Dominican Republic, fruity umbrella drink in hand.  :)

    Congratulations dear Susan, you must be elated with such a gorgeous wedding for the beautiful couple!! What a special day the wedding of our kids is, something we as parents never forget from years on. I always say that men marry women similar to their mothers who they adore and Chip's bride looks so much like you Susan, she just reminds me of you, somehow! Yeah, we're always sniff and sniff all the wedding, lol..Life just flies, when we thought they had just graduated HS!! Many blessings and happiness to the lovely couple. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  8. Hi Susan,
    Your son's wedding was beautiful and his new bride looked amazing.
    It's so emotional seeing our 'babies' walk down the aisle. I dont look at my children's wedding photos very often…..I get too teary and nostalgic.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Have a good week

    Susan,
    I definitely understand what you mean by "being a basket case". I was! NOT at our son's wedding…but the wedding of a close friend's son…who looks so very much like our son. Guess by the time our son decided to marry…my tears had all turned to smiles!!! "Mr. Ed" was the basket case!!! What a beautiful wedding!!! Your son and daughter ~ in ~ law make a lovely couple! Thank you (and them) for sharing this most precious day in their lives with all of us in the Land of Blog! May God richly and abundantly bless their union!
    Fondly,
    Pat

    Susan, even though I found your site over a year ago, I still marvel at how wonderful it has been to get to "know" you. I look forward to your posts, drool over your beautiful tables, and follow the transformation of the office. Now, you have been most generous and shared with us this most special day, the Wedding of your son. The photos are just lovely and I can relate to how fast the day sped by and how emotional the day was for you. I thought of you over the weekend and said a prayer that all would be just as you all hoped. Thank you for posting the photographs and allowing all of us to be "guests" in a special way. Blessings to all, MM

    If you are OK with doing so, please post some of your family together and of you, you are such a cutie I know you must have looked lovely too (at least post the shoes you ended up with :0)
    Such a beautiful wedding, thank you again for sharing this special day with us!

    Congratulations to you and the happy couple. They look deliriously happy and they are such a beautiful couple. Don't tell Chip I said he was beautiful. LOL
    I know the chapel very well. Two of my children graduated from UGA. I think it is so neat that they decided to go back to wed.
    I am so glad Chip had a beautiful lady to take him in. After all, you did KICK him out and take over his ballpark!
    Just love them and celebrate their life together.
    Blessings to you, Chip and Nancy, Ginger

The pictures are beautiful and I know you are a proud mom! I can’t wait to see you again at Haven in a few weeks :)

  37. BEAUTIFUL!

  40. Susan-Southern Fascinations says:

    Oh my Susan! Such a beautiful couple! I can’t think of a better way to commemorate the day for UGA sweethearts than a Black and Red wedding! The chapel is spectacular! Absolutely love the Foundry Park Inn so gracious and accommodating! Congratulations to the lovely couple… and to the families, too!

  41. Margaret says:

    Wishing the beautiful young couple much happiness!

    Congratulations to you and your husband on being now parents-in-law.

    I am reading your blog since a while and I know for sure that gorgeous bride got one of the most generous and inspired mothers-in-law ever.

    Thanks for sharing & kind greetings from Salzburg.

    Wow- congratulations- what a lovely wedding.I can’t think of one wedding where I did not cry- it’s hard not to!!

  44. Betty819 says:

    Susan,
    What a lovely wedding! The red flowers against the black wedding attire is stunning. No pictures of the Mother of the Groom? What color was your outfit? Formal or tea length? Or don’t they go by those styles anymore? Today’s weddings are so different than they were when I got married. I’ve been married 48 yrs. guess I can’t expect styles not to change. Weddings today are so costly.

  45. Was away for a few days so had to back up to see the wedding post. Oh Susan, how pretty the bride looks and how handsome the groom.
    I hope you had your lace hanky with you as it looks like you shed lots of tears. We mothers do!!!
    A beautiful venue for the ceremony, what a meaningful choice. Come on now, where are the photos of you?
    Congratulations and wishes for a life of happiness for Nancy and Chip.

    The black and white with red made such a beautiful wedding. The bride so pretty…the groom so handsome.
    Isn’t it funny how when this kind of thing makes you think of him when he was just a little boy? I look at my David sometimes…he is 48, and I still can just FEEL his little arms around my neck, kissing me on the cheek and I start bawling…like….right now. :)

And you’ve spent the last year saying goodbye to the little boy and embracing the man by turning his bedroom into an adult space. Best wishes to the newlyweds and may you build many happy memories as a mother-in-love.

    Oh what a beautiful wedding! Your daughter and son-in-law look beautiful! You sound like me, can’t hold the tears back, but it is a good cry because you are happy for them!

    When I see my nieces and nephews in plays or choirs, I do the same thing!

    Thanks for sharing!

  124. So lovely! A wedding is a wonderful thing to celebrate, and I love their color scheme. So many colleges have beautiful chapels like that, making them perfect locations for weddings and such.
    Congrats!
