A HISTORIC CHURCH + MANSION MICRO WEDDING
Fort Benning - Columbus, GA
IF YOU’RE PLANNING A WEDDING IN A HISTORIC CHURCH OR MANSION NEAR FORT BENNING - COLUMBUS, GA, YOU’LL LOVE THIS WEDDING FOR INSPIRATION!
Selina and Conor were married at the Marvin Methodist Church, which is an old historic church just 20 miles southeast of Fort Benning - Columbus, GA. It was a gorgeous day and even the weather played ball but the Georgia weather did not keep us from capturing beautiful imagery!
The couple got in touch with me this year, and their inquiry really intrigued me. They said they just wanted to be married, and I loved all of the fun images that they had posted on their wedding website. The fact that the groom was military really caught my attention as we too are a military family. Additionally, I had the pleasure of mainly communicating with Selina's mother Ginny who is truly a beautiful soul!
Selina wore a lacy dress and Conor wore a three-piece suit and they looked so dapper and elegant. Selina's maid of honor helped with hair and my what a beautiful outcome. Her hair had such great volume and the flower crown was the perfect touch!
The ceremony was an intimate affair in a beautiful church. They decorated the area with baby's breath and wooden crates, which I loved. In all honesty, the church didn't need much decoration as it's 18th century architecture already gives so much in terms of decor. During the ceremony they washed one another's feet and read their own vows. It was so meaningful!
Selina and Conor were married in the afternoon, and an intimate family dinner followed in the evening at an 18th century mansion which also happened to be their vacation rental for the week! I love this space because you can have the place for the whole weekend. I just loved how involved and passionate their family and friends were about the day! For dinner they had a buffet and the first dance was a romantic slow dance in the mansion's entryway. They finished off the evening with a retreat to the tiny house out back.
