When a fashion blogger and a southern gentleman get hitched, there's a lot of ground to cover. The wedding day should be rustic, yet stylish; gorgeous, yet not overdone. Luckily, and unsurprisingly, Jess and Dustin nailed it. The best example of the lovebirds keenly strutting such a balancing act had to be the bride rocking a Jenny Packham gown with converse high-tops.

What made the special day so memorable, however, aside from the couple's favorite human beings in the world being there to cheer and congratulate, was the venue itself. A sweetly southern farm that covers 160 acres of Georgia woodland, sprinkled with meadows and ponds, Sweet Meadow Farms stirred up the impression that Jess and Dustin were tying the knot at a beloved relative’s country home.

A short while ago, photographer Abigail Bobo shot newlyweds Eric and Jessica at the stunning Tennessee Homestead Manor, effortlessly capturing their wedding day. Although her photos speak for themselves, she and the happy couple were kind enough to share their personal thoughts and experiences with us, which made for one unforgettable tale.

There’s no beating around the bush here, Homestead Manor is THE modern, barnyard, rustic, host-the-most-epic-garden-party place to be. This 50 acre plot of top-notch farmland boasts some insane marry-making perks such as a dare I say dope bridal suite, pond, indoor-outdoor dining and 4,000 square feet of dancing room. We’re not lying when we say that everyone was literally on their feet, breaking it down (real low) the entire night.
