Wedding Feature: Glendalough Manor

We will now start featuring weddings that include our preferred exhibitors from The Bridal Extravaganza!

This wedding was sent into us by Leneille Brathwaite Moon featuring Glendalough Manor in Tyrone, Georgia just south of Atlanta.

Randall is a Licensed Massage Therapist and Leneille is an Event Planner/Writer who planned their beautiful fall wedding in two short months! They were engaged in June and wed in September. The weather was just right on September 23rd at 2:00 pm at the gorgeous Glendalough Manor.

The wedding was based on the couple’s background, Leneille’s Caribbean heritage with in the exotic florals and Randall’s Georgia peach colors throughout the wedding decor. Using mostly local southern vendors for everything from the stationary to the favors, Leneille wanted to support local businesses while staying on a tight budget.

She gives thanks to Craigslist and online sites for many of the wedding’s elements to make their special day unique and one of a kind, including her custom dress which allowed a 7 1/2 month pregnant bride look sexy instead of a blimp.

She tells me her favorite moment from the wedding was when their toddler was able to eat a cupcake from Cutie Pies & Cakery in Fayetteville. This doesn’t seem like a special event for most but this was his first cupcake; an allergy-friendly cupcake.

Leneille says, “He’s never had one before and although the wedding was supposed to be about us, for one moment it was about him and it was magical.”

How incredible precious.
