Happy Halloween everyone! Today we are all about TREATs with a stunning wedding to kick off the busy Fall season! We started off at the Weems Plantation in Locust Grove where Lyndsay and her bridesmaids spent the night unwinding before her big day. This Airbnb was the perfect place for everyone to get all dolled up and ready for the festivities. Beautiful farmhouse decor, hardwood floors throughout... #dream-house
Next, drove over to The Hazlehurst House in McDonough to get Lyndsay into her gorgeous dress. She did a first look with their father... as he stood in awe of his little girl dressed up like the princesses that she used to watch as a kid. Lyndsay and Wesley also chose to do a first look... and boy could you see the twinkle in his eye when he saw his bride! So sweet!!
The ceremony was flawless. The wedding was officiated by their friend Chad which made their ceremony even more special. Their sweet vows to one another were truly heartfelt... with tears of joy and laughter! The colors that they chose, navy and orange, blended beautifully with the changing of the leaves for fall. Their choreographed first dance was also a hit, followed by dancing with family and friends and a sparkler-lit farewell as they drove away in a vintage car.
Thank you so much for allowing us to be part of your perfect day. Congratulations Lyndsay and Wesley, wishing you all the happiness in your lives together!
Another stunning wedding at one of our favorite wedding venues... Oakhurst Farms! We could not have asked for a more beautiful and easy-going bride and groom to wrap up the summer wedding season than Bianca & Michael Mackfield!
Upon arrival, we were met with the threat of storms looming overhead. Don't you just love the summer showers that pop up out of nowhere?! Believe it or not, even with the dark, gloomy clouds and even thunder...there was not a single drop of rain on their special day! Everyone was in such happy spirits the whole time and willing to pose for any picture we envisioned.... talk about photographer's dream clients!
The ceremony was absolutely perfect...especially seeing the smile on Michael's face as he saw his bride walking down the aisle! The reception was nothing less than electric! All the family and especially the kiddos were busting moves and having a blast! The mood was definitely infectious. Bianca did an incredible job designing the decor for their special day. The photo booth by Midtown Memories was definitely a crowd pleaser too! I think Michael's "garter fetch" was one of the best we've ever seen and hilarious Mother-son dance! We truly enjoyed working alongside Creativideos (videographer) in capturing all these sweet moments for such a special couple! It's always such a pleasure to get to work with the Oakhurst staff and other wedding vendor friends as well!
Michael and Bianca, thank you so much for letting us capture these special moments for you and your families! We had a blast working with you all and we wish you many years of wedded bliss!
Here are a few of our favorite sneak peeks from the day...
Look out! Here come's one of the most gorgeous weddings yet!! It has been an absolute pleasure working with Donna over the last year as she planned her all her fabulous wedding details. She did an incredible job pulling all the accents, colors, decor together and you can definitely tell she put a lot of effort into it! The glamorous bling, rose gold and blush colors all played beautifully together. From the colors to the decor to the Krispy Kreme donuts, no one could deny that she has an eye for decorating & adding personal style to their special day!
The ceremony was absolutely perfect, with her and her father coming in on a horse drawn carriage. Even the horse was decorated in their colors! She loved being all glamorous too! The ceremony was both romantic and spiritual as Donna and Mike tied a braided Cross, signifying their unity together with Christ. Definitely one of our favorites!! I've overheard guests mention that they felt like royalty that day!
As always, it was a joy to work with our vendor friends and meeting new ones! We can't wait to see the video produced by H&H Studios.
Thank you Donna and Mike for letting us share in your special day. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!!
Here's a sneak peek at some of our favorite moments of the day....
Summer is officially here in Georgia! Despite the heat, Paisley & Brett's wedding turned out to be a beautiful day out at Pine Mountain overlooking the lake. Of course with any summer day, there is a chance of rain making some nervous moments, however the rain held off for this sweet couple. Brett is a tennis professional while Paisley is a first grade teacher. Brett was so thoughtful with his proposal... he proposed to her in her classroom with the best assistants possible.... HER STUDENTS!! What a memorable moment for everyone involved.
Their big day was full of heartfelt moments. Paisley and Brett exchanged letters before the ceremony which they read alone since they opted to save their "first look" for the ceremony itself. Paisley surprised her friends with a first look of her in her gown. As you can tell, they loved it! She also wanted a first look with her father before the ceremony. His eyes lit up at the sight of his little girl all dolled up and ready to be given away to Brett. Brett was so full of emotion when he saw his stunning bride with her gorgeous gown (Uptown Gowns, Columbus) walking down the aisle, you could see the joy in both of their eyes as they took their first step on the road to many years of happy marriage.
AT the reception, you could feel the love and joy from everyone as they celebrated these two. Paisley is part of the Kappa Delta Sorority and they wished them well with a special rose ceremony. It was so memorable and special to be able to witness their bond of sisterhood! The Father-Daughter dance was by far the sweetest!! The smiles were so big and so vibrant, with hugs of course!! You can tell they have such a special bond.
Take a look below at some of our favorite images from the day. It was an absolute joy to capture your special day, wishing you both a very happily every after!! #fromatob
We are officially back behind the camera! Photographers get a bit of a break during winter season, but as soon as the grass turns green--BOOM! It is wedding season! Can't wait to share this beautiful spring wedding with y'all!
Camdyn and Chelsey met three years ago through a mutual friend and instantly felt a spark! It is easy to tell these two were made for each other, something I noticed the moment I met them last Fall when we met to shoot their engagement session at the River Walk in downtown Columbus. Camdyn proposed to Chelsey on the balcony of a beautiful restaurant in New Orleans, talk about romantic!! Their entire wedding day followed suit, with a heart-felt first look and an intimate ceremony surrounded by family and friends. Camdyn's sister, Peyton, and Chelsey's sister, Melody stood by Chelsey's side as she said her vows to Camdyn who chose his brother, Collin, and his best friend, Tanner, as groomsmen. Vows were exchanged, tears were shed, and Camdyn finally kissed his bride!
Following the ceremony was a lively reception decorated beautifully with special touches. Vintage-themed centerpieces, a gorgeous cake (and cupcakes!), and a delicious taco bar definitely made this a night to remember! We danced, ate, and enjoyed every minute spent with this sweet couple, their families, and friends!
Take a look at some of our favorites from Camdyn and Chelsey's special day! We wish you both a lifetime of happiness!
