VIDEO | All White Fairy Tale Wedding in Georgia | Yamean Studio

This fairy tale wedding is everything we could’ve asked for and more! Mia and Antonio married in McDonough, Georgia back in March amidst family and friends. Their romance was a whirlwind, getting engaged just weeks after beginning to date. When you know, you know, as Mia said! This is one of the few videos that has truly touched my heart and really made me reflect but this one did.  I absolutely love the Maid of Honor and Best Man speech! AMAZING!

Everything was absolute perfection, down to Mia’s dress straight from New Orleans. Love it! We wish you many happy years ahead you two lovebirds!

Mia & Antonio

Wedding location: Mcdonough First United Methodist Church, Mcdonough GA Tell us how you met and all about the proposal: Antonio and I meet through mutual friends and asked me out a few times. After finding out he and my cousin worked together I finally felt comfortable with going out with him after my cousin said he was a good Guy! After a short period of dating we starting talking about marriage. I remember one day he said how long do you think people need to date before getting engaged, I responded with you know when its right and I feel your right if you asked I’d say yes…. A few weeks after that we were in a store looking at rings and right there in the store as I was saying how I loved this ring and thought he was standing behind me the look on the clerks face clued me in something was going on, when I turned around he was on his knee and asked me to marry him…. I was really shocked and happy and of course I said Yes! What was wedding shopping like for you? I went to New Orleans for Katrina Ten with 4 off my best friends and I found the perfect beaded dress and a bridal shop called Pearl’s Place. They shipped everything to me and my dress way just beautiful. What is your best memory from your wedding? The Best man and Maid of Honor Speeches What is the best wedding advice you can give to engaged couples? Enjoy the ride, the meetings with the vendors the time it takes, and don’t get caught up in the event… Stay focused on your love for one another. Don’t let the small things that will go wrong stress you out. Favorite item on the menu: Our wedding cake!!!! Cake’s by La’meeka did a chocolate construction cake for Antonio and a multi flavored cake for the wedding cake. All the guess raved about the cake the layers included key lime, red velvet, strawberry, and vanilla………. Every layer was like a different experience! First dance song:
Al Green- Let’s Stay Together Best part of your wedding: MY WEDDING DESIGNER MADE THE WEDDING! Sherri D Lyle made my wedding look like a million bucks! I was so against using silk flowers however she totally sold me! It was a huge cost savings and later after having a live sample bouquet  done I quickly realized my allergies will not permit me to be in a room full of flowers. Sherri did all bouquets and decor for the wedding.
