I had the honor of photographing Morgan and Trey's wedding day at The Farm at Old Edwards Inn. I have been looking forward to shooting here after talking about all the amazing plans with Morgan and it did not disappoint. Morgan and Trey live in Texas, but came to Atlanta for their engagement session and had their wedding in the Highlands, North Carolina! These two weren't the only ones well traveled on their wedding day, family and friends came from all over the world to celebrate! If you spend a second with them you know why people traveled far and wide to come to their wedding. It was a day filled with so much joy, gorgeous blooms and a dance party that could have gone until morning!
I made the trip to Big Canoe early Sunday morning to capture these two Georgia Tech sweethearts tie the knot! Everyone was hard at work getting the space dressed up in pink and white accents and I think the Cherry Blossoms outside got the memo on the color scheme, because the blooms were INCREDIBLE! They perfectly framed Meredith and Michael during their chilly morning ceremony. Who knew that at the end of March Georgia would decide to have winter again? Thankfully everyone was a good sport about it but Meredith was the real champ! Her dress was stunning but was definitely not warm. These two incorporated so many personal details into their day and it felt so perfectly THEM, right down to the Cinnabon cinnamon rolls!
I had the honor of photographing Britta and Hoyt's gorgeous day that started with an early afternoon ceremony at Cathedral of Christ the King and ended with a long night of dancing and toasting the newlyweds at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center! Their spring wedding day was picture-perfect with flowers blooming and the sun shining, which drew guests outside for a cigar bar and selfies under the arched entry way draped with beautiful garland by Boukates! With a couple that met at a bar and got engaged at a brewery, I knew this wedding would be fun but I had no idea what I was in for. I don't think I have ever seen a crowd, specifically a father of the bride and brother of the bride, get so hype for "Feel Like A Woman" by Shania Twain. It was awesome! Everything about their day centered around family and since these two were the first of their siblings to get married, they set the bar quite high!
I headed back down to Saint Simons Island again, this time for Hannah and Trey's wedding!! I was able to explore the area with them for their engagement session last October and you just can't beat sunshine pouring through those big mossy covered oaks. Needless to say I was so excited about their day! Having a couple as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside was the cherry on top of all the natural beauty. However, with the forecast showing an 80% chance of rain... my hopes for gorgeous portraits beneath those trees were slim to none at best. As the day went on, the forecast improved. As Hannah said, "This is the weather the grandmas have been praying for." Apparently I need to get these ladies on my payroll because it turned out to be a BEAUTIFUL, sunny day and Hannah and Trey deserved no less.
It has been the dreariest December that I can remember. This time last year I was facing a snowy wedding day, but last Saturday was just constant rain. Thankfully Venue 92 has a covered outdoor space for the ceremony, but I’m even more thankful that Kristen and Eric didn’t let the forecast phase them one bit. They were even up for a few portraits in the rain! These two met at work and if you were at their reception you could tell they may work hard, but they play harder. Their family and friends didn't want to leave!! Kristen and Eric had such an amazing support system for their wedding day (including two of my favorite past brides!) and it just felt like one big family celebrating together. Everyone definitely got a little closer around the heaters during the ceremony so I think folks felt like family afterwards regardless!
