North Georgia Mountain Wedding | Heather & John

 

Majority of the time, wedding days have a similar flow, tone and focus.  With so many people involved, bases to cover and traditions to check off, it is inevitable that a common rhythm is found throughout each wedding I capture.

But this day was different.

All Heather and John really wanted was a family centered day. This event would officially meld two families into one, and that is where the focus would be weighted. No fussy 'musts', no overtly posed portraits - everything just unfolded naturally as this family shared a special day together. All of their precious children - Heather's three and John's sweet pair - served as the most excited and proud bridal party my eyes have seen. You could feel the elation from every single child as they put on their special clothes, makeup and flowers. Opting out of a traditional first look, Heather and John mingled harmoniously during preparation and portraits. This bride and groom just rolled along casually as the day went by, relishing in the activity with an ease and clear love for each other. Hugs and giggles were plentiful!

Personal vows and lots of tears rang bold during the ceremony while the kids watched on with excitement as their parent's committed to serving one another as well as their 'new' family. I know my heart grew a little as I snapped these moments.

Juliette Chapel Dahlonega wedding venue

Ginny Early designed a charming reception, complete with an intimate table set perfectly for family and close friends. She curated the softest blue and oatmeal table linens by La Tavola to provide a soft contrast to the greenery and sage candlelight of the tabletop. Ginny also adorned the fireplace wildly with a variety of greens and a sprinkling of Icelandic poppies, carrying the playful feel of the bouquets into the dinner space.

North Georgia lake side engagement session | Cori + Michael

Just when I thought I could not love these two any more, I got the film back from their engagement session.  I knew we had a blast during their portraits, but seeing what was captured nearly knocked the wind out of me....just like the gusts we faced this blustery afternoon. Cori and Michael are funny, charismatic and clearly bring out the best in one another.  Cori's infectious laughter fills the air with a joy you can't escape all while Michael's sarcasm keeps this laughter flowing. They were open enough to let me plop them on a windy, frigid shoreline and still capture genuine pieces of their relationship on film. We didn't fret too much over the chill or all the crazy directions the breeze took hair and clothing - allowing the moments to just come naturally. And because of that, the heart of what they have shines through. REAL LIFE is GOOD STUFF people!

Oh and they brought their cute puppy Cooper in a bow tie! Come.Onnnn. 

Beyond excited to capture and celebrate wedding day with you guys!
