we are so thankful for our job. in this season of thankfulness and love and giving we find ourselves more intentionally living each moment and loving every second of it. this is directly related to the insane awesomeness that is: our clients. clients like jess & trevor are the reason we do what we do. spending the day completely immersed in their family and friends was a celebration like no other- we’re not likely to ever forget it. i walked into jess’s hotel room expecting hair and makeup to be in full swing but what i found was a room full of dancing, singing, laughing girls breaking it down to a wedding day mix i would love a copy of (uhhum!?). and the day continued as epic-ly (?) as it began.
first up, a few getting ready shots and a cameo of trevor’s amazing tie:
couple portraits were really important to jess & trevor so they decided to take advantage of the beautiful afternoon light and meet up before the ceremony. trevor grinned as jess walked toward him and when they were finally close enough they both started hugging and kissing and laughing with happiness. we pretty much love them:
dear jess’s bridesmaids, you guys have amazing style:
after some awesome portraits in the woods we all made our way back inside to relax before the ceremony. jess & trevor’s closest friends said prayers for them and it was a sweet time of well wishing and excitement. i love this image matt grabbed of jess & her dad exchanging a few last words before walking down the aisle.
one of my favorite times of each saturday is right after the ceremony as the bridesmaids and groomsmen are walking back down the aisle with huge smiles barely stifling the shrieks (groomsmen, sorry) of happiness and excitement for the new couple. the celebration starts there:
…and continues the rest of the night! jess & trevor were married and had their reception at the atlanta history center- the natural surroundings were perfect for their outdoor ceremony and the classic overlook ballroom was the perfect venue for dancing the night away! also, please do check out their slideshow to see their beautiful decor- and to think they did so much of it themselves!
this next set of shots couldn’t be passed up for the blog! jess’s little brother and her beautiful mom:
jessica & trevor, you guys are such a perfect couple! we really loved spending the day getting to know you better and capturing every moment. thank you so much for allowing us to be part of such a wonderful day!
