A Formal Backyard Wedding in Atlanta, Georgia

A Southern couple invite more than 300 guests to celebrate their marriage in the backyard of the bride's family home.

Following that precious advice, Peyten and Stan "took time to do a little bit of everything," the bride says. "We ate before we went out to see everyone, so we got to sample the yummy food. We danced for a long part of the reception, both at the beginning and the end. We got around to talk with many of our guests from out of town. And we even spent a few moments alone, away from the party, savoring the evening and how excited we were to be married."
