Cleo and Aaron kept their Georgia lakeside boho wedding super simple — just as laid back and chill as they are! Friend who lives on a lake? Check. Friend who decorates events and is willing to travel with a trunk full of outdoorsy decor? Check! Super awesome other friends ready to decorate an informal outdoor wedding with logs and flowers and vines? Check and check and check.

While Cleo and Aaron were cooing over each other's awesome wedding style (Suspenders! Tattoos! Flowy lace dress! Flower crown!), their friends scoured the area for last-minute wild materials to create an altar and an aisle. And speaking of style… how breathtaking is Cleo's gown?! Her grandmother handmade it as a wedding gift. It's so sad she wasn't able to travel from Cape Town, South Africa, to see Cleo wearing it in person!

  1. These wedding pics have so many feels. I love her dress and love even more that her Grandma made it. It's always nice to see someone being authentically them on such a big day. I may be partial as I also got married on a lake with canoes being a part of the decor, but this wedding is just lovely. 🙂
