What do you get when you bring together good people, good light and good views? This fun and beautiful autumn wedding in North Georgia! When I met DoAnn and Sam last year, I knew right away their wedding day would be a blast. DoAnn has a brightness about her, so spirited and joy filled. Sam has a calmness and warmth, a sureness about him that lets you know he is DoAnn's protector and probably chooses his friends wisely. Not surprisingly, I got to witness the culmination of these personalities as loved ones surrounded them on wedding day. The bride encircled by hugs, laughs and attention to detail from her maids. These women helped her slip into her dress, buckled her shoes and wrapped her in warmth when the wind blew wildly. The groom enveloped in yes, laughter, but also respect and support topped with a little comedy from his groom crew. We played some Michael Jackson and they all gave their best AC Slater poses. The sun shined loudly through the gorgeous fall colors of all the trees and distant valleys, and a cold wind let us know winter would be here soon. Wind settling to a breeze just in time for the ceremony, the guests sat attentively while being kissed by golden beams as vows were shared. The White Oaks barn housed one heck of a party for their reception - including great live music from The Answer Band and plenty of glow sticks to liven the dance floor even more than it already was! The band even learned a song for DoAnn and she danced like no tomorrow to the Lady Gaga tune. A long line of sparklers set the perfect exit for the newlyweds before jetting of to Thailand. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Carruth! It was so awesome being there with you.
