Maria + Gerome | Christmasy December Wedding | Roswell Recreation Center

I got a call from Gerome around noon the day before his wedding with bad news. Their venue had flooded from all the intense rains from the past couple days, and they were having to change EVERYTHING extremely last minute. With that in mind… can you even believe how beautiful and perfect everything came together? The city of Roswell came through for them, and let me tell you: Maria and Gerome’s circle of friends and family are some of the most genuine, helpful, true friends I’ve seen. So much love and care, not just between the couple but between their people. Truly beautiful to witness. I’ll stop blabbing and let you go see the highlight of images from the day now… xoxo

Rainy December Wedding | Sacred Heart Basilica / Wimbish House Atlanta Wedding Photographers

December was a very rainy month here in Georgia - Caroline and Greg’s wedding day was one of those rainy days where the rain stayed steady all day long. Despite the chill and wet weather that might put a damper (pun intended) on the festivities, the day went off without a hitch. The locations were gorgeous and classic, reminding me of old Hollywood in a way. A highlight of the day is below… enjoy!

WOW, what a beautiful wedding! Not just because of the location, but the contagious happiness beaming out of everyone. I loved that Fay and Daniel wrote each other letters to read before they saw each other, then shared a first look with their parents standing nearby to give hugs and share in the happy tears. Seriously EPIC day!!!

Destin Beach Sunset Elopement | Ashley + Justin | Okaloosa Wedding Photographer

Ashley and Justin ran off to the beach last month to marry on the beach in an intimate oceanside wedding with a handful of closest friends and family. Ashley’s sister officiated as the sun set golden over the most beautiful crystal blue water - and after the nuptials, the couple changed into the most epic bathing suits ever and went for a plunge in the pool with some unicorn inflatables. Pretty awesome way to tie the knot if you ask me! Best wishes and all the love to this adorable couple. Congrats Ashley and Justin!!!

Ashton Gardens Wedding | Edwin + Shoma | Atlanta Wedding Photographers

Edwin and Shoma were wed in a beautiful chapel mid-morning earlier this month in a ceremony focused on faith and unity. They’re such a joyful, sweet couple - and I’d like you to hear a bit about their story directly from them! Ed and Shoms, thank you for including me in your special day. Here is just a peek at the documentation of your day… all my love!!!

August 11th 2018 is the day that we hoped, prayed and planned for, for over a year. As the months went by and the days got closer to our wedding day, we couldn't contain our excitement in the details, plans and the thrill of being married to each other. Unfortunately, there was an unexpected twist to our story. We received the news that our dad was diagnosed with cancer, a couple of months before our special day. Life hit us hard. With a lot of uncertainty and uneasiness, together we decided that now wasn't the right time to finish up the final details of our wedding. Instead, we decided to  cancel the wedding and wait till the time was right. We weren't sure if it would be a year or years from now, but the focus at the moment was family. As months went by, dad expressed his desire to walk his baby girl down the aisle. Within 4 weeks, a new location, new vendors, and a new date later, we had a wedding on our hands! With excitement a father only gets the day of his daughter's wedding, and a huge smile on his face, dad got to walk his girl down the aisle on September 1st. We realized that although life didn't give us the glamour that we typically see the year leading up to a wedding, we got to uniquely experience the reality of marriage by fighting through the thick and the thin as one. Though our plans may have changed, there were so many lessons that we learned together leading up to the altar. We learned to cling tight to these moments without letting them pass by so freely. That it is worth waiting for that moment of joy in a trying season, and that ultimately: love always wins.
