Jill + Silas = the Peeds!

August 22, 2009 |


Jill and Silas’s wedding was a perfect representation of these two crazy kids!  Silas is my cousin, and I remember the first time I met Jill and knew she was the perfect fit for him.  I am so glad to welcome Jill to our family.  I cannot wait to have y’all over for dinner.  Well, I knew I was gonna have a blast with them and they did not disappoint.  It was another HOT summer day, but they were troopers and we got a bunch of awesome outside shots.   The wedding and reception was held at my church, historic First Presbyterian Church in downtown Macon, GA.  So onto their preview.999_0001

Jill’s lacey dress was gorgeous.   Shout out to Silas’s two sister’s Rebekah and Susanna for helping me with the hanging of the dress.

Jill went barefoot on her wedding day, but she brought along the cowboy boots that she inherited from her Daddy.  She wore them on her engagement shoot, and also at the end of her wedding day when she when she ran though the bird seed.   I enjoyed using her boots to show off their rings.

Allison Lucas (along with Nector and Company)did another fabulous job with Jill’s flowers.  They were simply perfect.  More wedding details, including Jill’s garter that her mom made her.

Again, the flowers were perfect.  They almost looked like the lace on Jill’s dress.

Jill and Silas shared a hug on the front porch of the church after becoming man and wife.

I don’t usually post family formals on my blog but I thought this one was funny.  Thanks to Jill’s sister, Julee Beth for taking it for me.  You have mad skills!

My HUGE Family!  And there are actually a lot of people missing!

The Fancy Pig of Pig in a Pitt catered the reception.  It was so yum. What can I say, mac and cheese, potato salad, pulled pork, and BBQ chicken, oh my! Oh and more of Allison’s amazing floral designs.

My bf Elizabeth made the Bride’s cakes.  Its her second time making a wedding cake and she has some skills I see a future there. There were three of them.  She made a key lime cake, and regular wedding cake, and a strawberry cake.

999_0044Silas is not a big cake guy, but he loves Klondike bars.  The perfect Groom’s cake.

So Silas……………

What would ya dooo-ooo-oooo for a Klondike bar?

Oh and one of my favorite details of thier wedding was “the Seed for the Peeds” and “the Seeds from the Peeds.”

Silas has his own landscape company.  So they had the perfect favor if wildflower seeds from the Peeds. And they ran through bird seed.  It was so cute!

999_0056

Oh did I mention that Jill’s maiden name is Dunn.  That’s right Jill Dunn Peed.  I am sure that had already gotten old….come on people.

999_0057

In true Silas fashion he had a buck knife on hand to handle the popping of all the baloons that fell out of their getaway car.

999_0058

The send off!

999_0059

Thanks to the Dunns, the Peeds, and all the rest of the friends and family for such a fun time.  I don’t think I have ever seen so many people break it down in the church fellowship hall!
