Last weekend I had the honor of celebrating and capturing Brooke and Mathew's gorgeous wedding at Waters Mill in Dahlonega, Georgia! The venue, atmosphere, details, and the weather were PERFECT for their day! The only thing missing was Ollie, their sweet pup that I got to play with at their engagement session!
Brooke and her bridesmaids got ready at an amazing mountain home on the river, I wish I could have just spent all weekend there! It was the perfect place for Brooke to transform into the beautiful bride she was that day. We headed to the venue to begin pictures in the lush gardens. As guests began to arrive and the bridal party was ready to be hidden, we were able to make time for Brooke and Mathew to have a quiet moment alone. Although they didn't want to see each other, they did want a moment to pray before becoming husband and wife. It was genuinely a moment I won't forget. As Mathew got emotional praying over their marriage and future life together, I was just so thankful to have a camera hiding my own tears! It was so sweet! Under an ivy covered alter with glass globes filled with succulents hanging overhead, Mathew and Brooke said "I do!". As the night went on, guests celebrated with the newlyweds and raised their glasses for two amazing toasts! Mathew's brother, Jared, opted for a song rather than a traditional toast and it was AWESOME! I don't know if there was a dry eye in the house! After some music and dancing, the new Mr. and Mrs. Koenig left under tunnel of sparklers to start their new life together! Mathew and Brooke - thank you so much for letting me be a part of your day! I can't wait to hear about your trip!!
Huge thank you to Hillary for helping to divide and conquer while capturing all of the gents' pictures!
Love this shot above that Hillary captured!!
