What better way to celebrate the first day of spring than to shower our brides-to-be with inspiration from The Big Fake Wedding Athens! Our hospitable hosts at 255 Milledge provided the perfect canvas for our concept with fanciful wallpaper and an elaborate, velvet couch. With dainty patterns, petite desserts and an eclectic color palette, our vendors truly exceeded our expectations. So brew some tea, grab your planner and enjoy our event highlight below!


P.S. Chinoiserie is pronounced sheen·waa·zr·ee!

Meet the Featured Couple

Luke and Lane Marie first met while playing music together for their church in 2012. While Lane Marie was going into her freshman year of college, Luke was entering his sophomore year and the two lived as neighbors. Lane Marie wasn’t quite sure about Luke, but Luke quickly decided that she was the girl he wanted to marry. After much cajoling, Lane fell head over heels for Luke’s quick wit, and devilish smile. This inevitably led to their marriage in 2016. These two lovebirds still live in Athens with their two new furry felines!
