friends, readers & mom (hi, mom!), i want to introduce you to one of my favorite couples ever, staci & michael. i’ve been sitting here just staring at a blank computer screen trying to come up with the words for these two buuuut <- i stopped there, for like 30 minutes. that’s all i could think to write. so instead of pressuring myself to write beautiful words about these two talented writers (no pressure!), i’ll just tell you a little about them. they make you smile. just being around them makes you feel like you’re living life a little more fully. they notice detail, splendidly tiny moments, and they take time to enjoy them. they are intentional, speaking words of kindness to one another and also to all of those around them. they are sensitive and imaginative and passionate and fun. i should have mentioned fun first, actually, because staci & michael have a LOT of fun! i was literally smile/laughing through their entire reception. they also know how to work it (see: every image below). i’ve been really excited to share these with you so i’ll quit trying to describe these two in words- because, look:
staci & michael’s ceremony was held at the seney stovall chapel in athens- we were happy to have their first look nearby before exploring the grounds and then heading downtown to shoot around some of staci & michael’s (and our!) favorite spots. :)
it’s best when these little moments just happen, love this set:
their reception was held at the stunning rialto room in the hotel indigo, i’m in love with these ceilings:
this next little series makes me smile- staci twirling before heading back to the reception in her dancing dress:
staci & michael’s parents had so much fun at the wedding- tearing up the dance floor just like their kids! what fun families!
probably my favorite image from their wedding day:
