Harvey Wedding : Middle Georgia Wedding Photography

The weekend after Thanksgiving we had the privilege of working with this lovely and kind couple.  They were SO incredibly sweet and patient.  In fact, their entire wedding party, family and friends blew us away with their warmth and hospitality.  The ceremony was held in a beautiful church with some of the most gorgeous architecture.  The day started with Cecilia getting ready with her bridal party and her mom.  Her mother actually made her stunning dress and veil!  It was so beautiful, I was amazed by the attention to detail!  Cecilia was truly glowing when she slipped the dress on!  I just love how her face lit up!




Cecilia and Matthew opted to have a private first sight, in a quiet room of the church.  After, we were able to spend some extra time on their photos, which, as always, made me super happy! 






After their photos it was time for the group shots - and boy did this group keep us laughing!!





Their ceremony was absolutely beautiful and sweet.  I loved how her long train gently floated behind her as she walked.  I was absolutely mesmerized by the song that her father and siblings sang during the ceremony.  Mac and I still talk about how beautiful it was!!


After the ceremony it was time to head to the reception.  The food was absolutely incredible.  Their families truly outdid themselves, everything was tasty and just...wow!!


I love Cecilia's expression in the second photo of this set - she seriously wasn't sure whether Matthew was going to be sweet about feeding her the cake or not lol!!


Cecilia and Matthew made a grand exit to the waving of streamers which I thought was sweet!  I love how Matthew scooped her up in his arms!


Cecilia and Matthew, we wish you both a lifetime of happiness and love.  We so enjoyed spending the day with you and your beautiful families!!!!  Best wishes you two! ♥♥♥

Sumner Wedding : Middle Georgia Wedding Photographer

In November we had the opportunity to work with this beautiful couple on their big day.  The day started out with Jennifer getting ready surrounded by her bridesmaids and family:


The wedding was held at the beautiful Highgrove Farm in Valdosta. We just loved this venue - it was rustic and charming and just perfect for an outdoor ceremony.  Jennifer and Josh opted to do a "first sight" (which are always so much fun!) 


I love that a "first sight" allows extra time for photos of just the couple.  We took advantage of that extra time and had a blast photographing this gorgeous couple. 









This wedding party was a total blast - I love it when they let loose and just have fun!



Jennifer and Josh had such a sweet and heartfelt ceremony - there were a few tears and lots of laughs.



This wedding had some of *the* cutest kids...



The venue was decorated beautifully, I just loved the light and airy colors and the hand crafted details!




Before cutting the cake the newlyweds shared their first dance:


Their cake cutting was hilarious.....cake anyone??


After dinner it was time to let loose on the dance floor....and they certainly did!


The couple left to the glow of sparklers....



Jennifer, Josh, congratulations you two!  Thanks so much for allowing us to share your day with you - you were both incredible to work with, we loved every second!!!!  ♥♥♥
