Marrying McAfee | Guys Getting Ready

The guys spent the night before the wedding in a hotel in Statesboro, and got mostly ready there. Our wedding venue, Quinney Oaks Plantation, was finishing up a guest house where future grooms and groomsmen can get ready while the ladies get ready in the main house, but it wasn't quite finished when we were married in April. That being said, it did lend to some pretty awesome backdrops and angles for their getting ready pictures.

Those lucky ducks arrived at the venue around 2 p.m., much later than our 9 a.m. hair call! It was just enough time for them to put on their finishing touches, have a beer, and deal with any crises before the wedding, such as my dad's rental shoes' soles falling off! Too funny.

Christopher's gifts to his groomsmen included leather bound flasks, a really cool knife, and whiskey stones with their initials on them. All of the guys rented their tuxedos from R.J. Pope in Statesboro. We picked white for the groom because I wanted him to stand out just as much as I did in my white dress! Plus, I absolutely adore the way black and white pictures look with the couple in all white, and we got some stunners!

P.S. Isn't my groom so very handsome?
