  • Katlyn and Ben were married at Rehoboth Baptist Church in Washington, Ga., which is where Ben grew up attending services.
  • As the owner of Southern Gates Weddings and Events, one of Augusta’s wedding planners, Katlyn easily knew what vendors she wanted to turn to when planning her own wedding.
  • Katlyn decided on two wedding dresses from Tiffany Bleu Bridal Boutique. One, she wore for the first look and reception, and the other she wore for the ceremony. “No one knew I had a second dress,” said Katlyn.
  • Katlyn and Ben had about 330 guests from all over the country attend their wedding. With 14 bridesmaids and 14 groomsmen, the two made sure their closest friends and family were by their side for the special day.
