When one of our photographers got married last year, we were asked if we had time to shoot another wedding in the area two days before. So it was a huge week of weddings. Not only did we find out about this wedding last minute, the bride and groom put the whole thing together in a month! When the bride is from another country, and the visa gets accepted, you only have a short amount of time to pull everything together. So even though the bride had only one person come from China, the entire night was full of love and fun. The bride even changed into a traditional Chinese dress for the reception. And I have to admit, in all the weddings I’ve attended and photographed, this was the first one where I started tearing up during the speeches.
This wonderful couple had the best smiles around! And they were surrounded by great smiling family and friends. From the fun time of learning roles at the rehearsal, to stealing a private moment together under the trees this day was filled with love. To make the day more unique, the toasts were opened to all their guests. Many excited blessing of joy were bestowed upon the newlyweds!
One of the great things about living in Marietta is being so close to the Marietta Square! We’ve done a few family shoots there, but this was our first wedding! Even though it was toasty outside, we had a lovely day photographing this wonderful wedding at the Marlow House. From the small, private ceremony to the exciting sparkler send-off, it was a fantastic first Marietta Square wedding. We can’t wait for more!
This bride and groom had big plans on their wedding day for where they wanted to take pictures. The plan was to go to their favorite places around St. Louis and get a lot of outdoor shots. Well, Mother Nature had different plans. It rained. So, we showed up for their 1st anniversary and went to all the places we didn’t get to go before! It was a lot of fun running around the city, and being able to see how much joy they had after their first year of wedded bliss.
Late June we traveled to Lake George, New York for a wedding on a dinner cruise ship. There were many humorous photos coupled with sweet endearing moments. This couple is sure to have a marriage filled with both!
There’s an old wives’ tale that rain on your wedding day is good luck. If that’s so, the couple from our latest wedding shoot is in for some luck! Even though the ceremony was moved inside, we were still able to take some photos outside after the ceremony. The wedding was held at beautiful Hazlehurst House in McDonough, GA.
