Ashley and Scott’s Ivy Hall Wedding

Ivy Hall wedding venue is located at Roswell Mill, just outside of Atlanta, Georgia.

The establishment is alongside Vickery Creek, providing nature paths, water, and a covered bridge close by the venue.

It’s perfect for outdoor ceremonies on the 25,000ft deck, or an indoor ceremony with its large windows and great lighting inside the venue!

Ashley & Scott almost didn’t make it to see the venue on their scheduled tour.

Scott got a flat tire on the way, but they decided to still try to make it.

After touring the venue, they stood outside and Ashley started crying.

Scott asked what was wrong and she said, “Nothing, this is the one.”

It was a huge sigh of relief for them after a very long search over three states and 10+ different venues.

From the bride: “We were looking for a venue that “had it all.”

I fell in love with the historic and rustic venues.

Ours was perfect for us- as it incorporated the historic feel.

We had our ceremony on the deck overlooking the river, buildings and the mill bridge to take photos on, and a great reception room with surrounding windows.

On choosing the perfect décor for her day, Ashley “always had leaned towards the “rustic” feel/theme”, and after choosing to have an Ivy Hall wedding at Roswell Mill she knew that theme fit perfectly.

She liked having the opportunity to mix materials incorporating wood with copper and various shapes. Believe it or not, Ashley made all of the décor!

The newlyweds chose to personally craft the whole ceremony instead of going off a traditional script.

Ashley said, “It was definitely important to us to do our own personal vows- as I wanted this to be special to us.”

They also decided early on to do a first look providing some personal time and space for the two of them during their busy wedding day.

They said, “We are both pretty traditional so we were not open to this at first. But we’re SO happy we opted to do a first look and spend that time together.”

We find most of our couples would agree that after their first look, they feel both relieved and excited that the day paused for a moment and allowed time for just the two of them!

From the bride: “There was so many great moments. Scott says the “first look.” Mine would probably be introductions/entering the reception as “Mr. and Mrs. Sika”.

It was such a long journey and now the stressful parts were all over- it was like a rush of happiness and joy, and now we just got to celebrate that we made it.”

Advice for those planning: Do what’s best for you- whatever it may be!

It’s hard, but don’t stress. I stressed about so many things leading up to the big day, and on our actual wedding day, I didn’t think of any of those things!

Lastly, enjoy every second of it. Enjoy the planning, enjoy all of it. In the end, it all goes by so fast!”
