The Wedding | Abba and Nate

Effortless, chic, and Southern, Billy's daughter Abba's recent wedding was everything she'd dreamed of. Take a look inside the event of the year (as seen in Vogue).

“Nate and I wanted to get married at my parents’ house with a simple ceremony,” says Abba. “Growing up, our home was always a wonderful place to entertain, so it seemed like the perfect space; we wanted to keep things natural and let my childhood home, the backyard, and the large magnolia tree set the aesthetic.” Even the date they chose has family ties: June 25th is also [Billy and Jeanne's] wedding anniversary.

With a goal of letting guests feel “laid-back and at home,” the couple made arrangements for a summer wedding during a classic Alabama heat wave. An indoor reception space a few blocks from their home in downtown Florence, Pickett on Court, was available and felt like a match: “It was beautifully decorated with artwork, florals, antique rugs, and more to make the space feel cohesive to our home,” says Abba.

Nate ultimately chose Billy Reid’s Archie Jacket and Moore Trousers in a natural shade with a brown loafer from the line. “He had always said he did not want to wear the typical black tux on his wedding day, and when we got a sample of this suit in, we knew it was perfect,"[said Abba].

After the ceremony, Nate surprised Abba with a photo session at the home where her parents were married. “It was a surreal moment for us, as Nate and I were just beginning our marriage standing in the same place my parents’ beautiful marriage began 28 years ago,” she says.
