Often you know a wedding is going to be a stunner right from the start. And the wedding of Jessie Lysiak and Justin Braun at Serenata Farm in Madison GA was a given! We had known Jessie and her parents, Melinda and Tom, for quite some time. Melinda was actually the manager at another Madison wedding venue (and popular Bed and Breakfast), Madison Oaks, many years ago when Margie’s sister was married there. Jessie was living in the attached apartment at the time enjoying small town Georgia living. Eventually she left to live and work on a yacht where she quickly honed in on her chef skills. That, in turn, lead her to the entertainment industry and Masterchef Season 4. It was no surprise that she managed to find and fall for professional hockey player, Justin Braun. Her dad, Tom, is also a former NHL Allstar!
Jessie and her mom happened upon once of the most magical places in Madison GA – Serenata Farm. Owned by Bobby Robinson (i.e. Yoga Bobby!) and Kent Smith, this immaculate estate is also used as a Yoga retreat. This video will tell you all you need to know!
The guest list was kept small and intimate. Ceremony in the front yard with a reception tent in the back. We went with a fully lined 40×55 frame tent, estate farm tables, chiavaris, black/white dance floor, and a vintage shabby chic chandelier from our lighting collection. Photographer Brandy Angel did an amazing job capturing the details while guests enjoyed the food from A Divine Event and an delicious Debra Adams Cake!
