Staci & Michael’s Wedding at Hotel Indigo, Athens

By | Weddings | 3 Comments

Allow me to introduce you to our friends, Staci & Michael. They make you smile. Just being around them makes you feel like you’re living life a little more fully. Staci & Michael 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 and have 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 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 digging 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 with the entire family!

Staci & Michael, thank you both for inviting us to be part of such a beautiful celebration- we love you guys and we look forward to seeing you soon!

saturday morning we woke up smiling. we knew the day ahead was going to take us to some of our most cherished places and we knew that sarah & wilson would have a wedding day full of sweetness and laughter. how blessed we are! i finished my once-a-week hair and makeup routine (weekdays are really chill around here… ;)) and we stopped in at the little coffee shop down the street before heading to the classic city- athens, georgia. we arrived early to scout locations for sarah & wilson’s couple photos and also to wander around the gardens where we celebrated our own marriage almost 5 years ago! when it was time, matt and i split up to capture the finishing touches of the getting ready process before we met back again for sarah & wilson’s sweet first look. as you’ll see, sarah surprised wilson with a stunning guitar and they spent a few quiet moments before their ceremony just sitting together while wilson played and sarah just relaxed and smiled. it was such a naturally beautiful and peaceful time for them to refocus on one another and the love they share. i really admire the way these two were able to shut out the bustle of the day and soak up every moment they were able to spend together. they make me smile. :)

i really love this image matt captured of the guys relaxing before walking down the aisle:

after the ceremony we grabbed a few more quick images of the two of them together before joining the party in the conservatory!

this next image is matt’s favorite ;)

sarah & wilson, thank you so much for allowing us to capture such a beautiful day! we really enjoyed being part of your celebration and re-living our own at the same time- thank you! :) we wish you guys the best!
