They are: Lauren Lewis and Adam Hebert. They met: At a gig in their college town. They live in: Statesboro, Georgia, USA

Traditional down-home comfort was the theme of Laura and Adam’s Pebble Hill Plantation wedding, undertaken by none other than Belfast-based event stylist Alise Taggart.

The rustic beauty of the authentic Southern plantation, with its lush surrounding gardens, Georgia pines and pecan orchards, served as the most charming natural backdrop to a day of laughter, song and dance.

The plantation was embellished with flowers and hanging lights, adding the perfect amount of whimsy to an overall feel of pastoral opulence. Guests were treated to a menu of jazzed-up takes on traditional Southern comfort foods, while a live waltz band ensured the outdoor canopied dance floor was never empty.

As festivities came to a close, the couple was sent off in a shower of rose petals, with Laura looking every bit the gorgeous Georgia Peach.
