It is so incredibly special for the groom to see his bride for the first time not diluted with the guests. A time when the bride and groom are intimately captured with each other. The surprise is still there, but having that time before blesses the couple with a calmness of emotion just before sharing their vows.
Hannah and Chris have a story book love that started in the library. I always heard studying can really pay off. It sure did for these to Georgia Tech friends.
Don’t dwell on the little things - have as much fun as you can and always have good communication! Communication is key in any relationship!- Blake
A sweet bride's reflection on their love story and favorite moments of the day from the bride and groom. Happy Anniversary....oops Wedding Day.
Savannah shares her favorite moment of the day. Press Pause Often.
Amanda + Bryan. These two have lots to celebrate and smiles that are contagious. They even brought a touch of Nashville to be part of their wedding day- and the band rocked! Loved setting up during their warm up. Truly amazing.
Some brides are simply a dream. Hillary was simply a dreamy reality. She invited us to create for her wedding to Jeremiah and we loved every minute of this picture perfect couple's incredibly hot celebration.
Kirstin + Stephen. Sometimes music can be heard in the heart. Love boldly.
From the front porches to the billowing drapery, the arbor, the chandeliers, the barn, the swing to the most enamored couple -- the day was gorgeous.
Mornings at Piedmont Park are more beautiful when you add a stunning bride and her groom. Lauren and Matt's love story is a "charming" one.
Lake Oconee at sunset. These two shared such a time among family and friends at their lakeside home. Just as the sun began to fade, Shannon made her walk to her groom. She was radiant, and Daniel was ready for her to be his bride as their adventure was only starting.
Christmas. It simply brings out a joy and warmth like no other time of year. A time to celebrate love. Abby + David shared their vows and love for each other surrounded by family and friends at Cecil B. Day Chapel. Then, it was time to celebrate beautifully at 550 Trackside.
Some days, I am reminded to simply be. To simply be thankful. Today, was one of those days. Margaux and Ryan, your love story is captivating. You love each other kindly, sweetly, gently, selflessly, radiantly and reflect grace so beautifully. I am thankful for seeing you grow up. Thankful for being a part of your day and thankful for love that is beautiful. Yours is just that.
Ok, this was admittedly one of my favorite weddings of the year. We love bringing in some treats and providing our brides with a stellar team... especially on Halloween! How fun?!?
But, first pause... for mother-in-laws... wait... where is this going?
This December, we were invited as alumni creatives to be part of The Biggest Fake Wedding. Here is a glimpse of some of my favorite pieces of the extraordinary day.
Elise and James, you know how to throw a Southern party. In the details, you never lost focus of your focus. The faith that you share, the love it cultivated and the celebration...
When the wedding day arrived, so did rain in the forecast. But, despite the predictions, the beautiful day was accompanied by glorious sunshine -- allowing Michelle and Andy to enjoy a day richer, and more vibrant than any far-away fairytale could provide.
Sometimes, a love story unfolds as beautifully as a rose. The two spend their days serving others in each of their vocations. And, their wedding day was nothing short of an exclamation of their joy to choose to love and serve each other for the rest of their lives.
The heart is a strange thing. It takes a beating along the journey of life. But with age comes wisdom and knowledge. And when your soul, your heart, and your mind sync together at the right time, the right place and the right person come into the frame in what seems like an incredible perfect dream. What came as an unexpected and unplanned love between Hillary and myself - God looks down and says "Boom! I've been waiting for this moment."
