WATCH: You'll Love This Emotional Wedding in Georgia

Real Weddings

A long weekend is good for more than just barbecues and hours logged at the beach, especially when you're in the thick of wedding planning. So as you gear up for a Fourth of July filled with family time, delicious cocktails, and even better food, make sure you carve out a few hours to cross some items of your big day to-do list. If one of your tasks includes nailing down some wedding ceremony or reception ideas, then you're in luck, as our real wedding video channel has more inspiration than you'll ever know what to do with. Each week we go behind the scenes of one of our favorite new celebrations, and today we're bringing you inside Katherine and Taylor's emotional spring wedding in Georgia.

With ARO Videography there to capture every heartfelt moment of the day, this couple's video is sure to get your creative juices flowing. Classic brides, take a look at Katherine's gorgeous wedding dress. The ornate lace details, timeless sleeves, and fitted silhouette all came together as a gown that will look great now and for years to come — a style we can totally get behind! After all, you'll want to love your look now and in 10 years!

This couple's wedding ceremony was clearly the most important part of the day. While they kept their décor minimal, adding only a delicate draping as an altar, the room was packed with some serious emotion. Just take a look at the groom, who was moved to tears as soon as he saw Katherine walking down the aisle and continued to beam at his beautiful bride throughout their vows.

As for the reception, it appears there wasn't a single guest that didn't tear up the dance floor. Not only was the space entirely conducive to a party vibe — we love the brick walls, tall ceilings, and soft lighting — but the bride and groom encouraged everyone to celebrate their newlywed status. Another fun detail? The selfie stick! The POV dancing action makes us feel like we're right there with the rest of the couple's friends and family. Last but not least, these two closed out the night with a fun sparkler exit, the perfect idea to steal this holiday weekend!
