kelly & zack are married!

in many industries repeat customers are a sure sign business is going well. in this industry, that…isn’t so much a thing…so i will replace that with: showing up to shoot an incredible couple and realizing that not one, but two of your past clients are groomsmen. :) and since that was the case with kelly & zack’s wedding, we knew right away they’d be awesome folks! we spent an absolutely wonderful day with kelly & zack and their friends and families. the bridesmaids were funny and sweet and so on top of things- kelly barely had time to realize she needed something before it was handed to her! the groomsmen were excited and silly but also so encouraging of zack- it’s rare to see a group of guys like this one. their parents came and went, keeping an eye on both zack & kelly before the ceremony and spending intentional, sweet moments with both. really, i can’t say enough about what wonderful people surrounded kelly & zack on their wedding day! and i think that speaks volumes about who they are as a couple, their engaging personalities and their love of those around them. so many beautiful moments to capture. :)

after the ceremony, kelly & zack set aside some time for couple portraits- first at the church and then at their reception venue, primrose cottage:

i just love this one, it might just be my favorite:

briana & ben are married!

look at ^those^ beautiful people! it’s been a minute since i talked about how lucky we are that our job introduces us to some of the best people on earth- so let me tell you now- couples like bri & ben are the reason we do what we do. these two are fun and witty and creative and interesting- spending their wedding day with them was our pleasure. though they love their community in brooklyn, they returned to the south for their wedding day- embracing the nostalgia of their college experience. since matt and i share that nostalgia when it comes to the sweet little town of athens, georgia, we felt right at home. :) their wedding and reception took place at the same venue where our reception was held almost 7 years ago and we joined them for a bit of the afterparty of one of our favorite music venues, ever, the 40 watt. excellent taste bri & ben, we like you two! :)

just look at this happiness, i bet you can’t not smile!

bri changed into the most amazing party dress about half way through their reception, i’m in love with it:

sweetest little grandma, gettin down:

bri & ben, so happy for you two, thank you for having us!

lisa & sanil are married!

lisa & sanil are two of the happiest, most vibrant people i’ve ever met. as a couple, they absolutely light up a room with their engaging smiles and heartfelt words. it is the most obvious thing in the world that they adore one another- just being around them gives you a lightness of heart. their magnetic personalities draw others into their fun- which makes for a giant, wonderful wedding celebration! lisa & sanil began their wedding day with individual blessings from close family members- a sweet and intimate way to focus on what the day was all about. it was clear to me right away that lisa & sanil are very close with their families and in so may ways they honored them throughout their wedding day. this honor was beautifully reciprocated by their families as it was equally clear that everyone was deeply happy to see lisa & sanil begin their new life together- really, what a sweet day it was to capture so much connection and love.

lisa and her sisters are very close- despite the many distractions around them they really focused and gave lisa so much time, attention and encouragement. what a sweet family!

it was so cute to see lisa’s dad stealing glances to check on her as we traveled to the church. :)

i think it’s hard for most couples to really live in the moment during their wedding ceremony. there’s always so much going on, things happen quickly. but lisa & sanil really made a point of staying connected to one another and engaged in their ceremony- complete with a few laughs. :)

a light breeze is just so romantic. :)

lisa & sanil’s reception took place at the grand hyatt atlanta in buckhead. jade lee decorated the space while laura potts coordinated their day.

lisa & sanil’s family put on the most wonderfully sweet/funny/awesome performance for them- please do click through to their slideshow for more images!

i love this next set of images- sanil dancing with lisa’s dad!
