Maggie & Jonathon are Married!

By | Weddings | No Comments

early autumn is a popular time in atlanta- the oppressive heat of summer has abated but the sun is still warm and brilliant- glittering over buildings, making trees seem even greener and more lush as hints of yellow and orange creep onto the leaves. everyone is outside and active and smiling- which makes it the most popular time to host a huge festival- one that takes over a large portion of the city and draws crowds from around the country- music midtown. it was on this beautiful weekend that maggie & jonathon were married- at the peachtree club in the middle of, you guessed it, midtown. this may not seem like an ideal situation to any outsider reading this but i am so happy that maggie & jonathon were able to tune out the crowds, the traffic and the distant bump of bass and really focus on one another and beginning their new life together. not everyone would have been able to stay as centered and present as the two of them. which i think bodes well for their future- if being together means the chaos of the world fades into the background- that can only mean good things for maggie & jonathon. we couldn’t be happier for them- here are a few of our favorite images from their wedding day.

i LOVE the plum maggie chose for her bridesmaids- so rich and beautiful for the start of fall in atlanta. :)

maggie & jonathon, we wish you two the very best! thank you so much for having us there to capture your wedding day!

amanda & josh are married!

it’s our favorite thing to work with couples who just ‘get’ what we do. to be trusted completely and encouraged to just ‘do what we do,’ is really when we feel free to relax into our surroundings and capture the beauty we see around us. amanda & josh are these kind of folks- relaxed and laid back and fun. they truly enjoyed their wedding day- connecting with friends and family- chatting, dancing, laughing and celebrating- and laughing some more. :) spending the day with them was comfortable and fun- capturing their special brand of silliness and deep love was a joy. these two kept a smile on my face all day and we feel so lucky to have photographed such a perfect celebration of two wonderful people!

amanda & josh’s wedding took place at the peachtree club– 28 floors above midtown atlanta.

guests enjoyed king of pops on their way to the ceremony- my favorite and an atlanta staple!

seriously, photographing two people this happy together is just the best! :)

amanda & josh, you guys are the best. :) thank you so much for having us there to capture such an excellent celebration!

kelly & andrew are married!

kelly & andrew met in high school- their first date was in 2001! what started as a fun little crush (on kelly’s side) and complete cluelessness (on andrew’s side) turned into an 11 year dating relationship that flourished even as they lived across the country (and at times across the world!) from one another. but, if you’ve seen kelly & andrew together, you immediatly know you’re witnessing something special. their openness and obvious love for one another is inspiring to see and their deep friendship and shared history makes them so comfortable and relaxed around each other. kelly & andrew are the kind of people who, after spending just one evening with them, make you feel like you’re part of the same story. we knew going into their wedding day that it would be special, different somehow, from what we usually can expect or anticipate. we’d looked over their schedule, we knew there’d be all the usual events, but we also knew kelly & andrew- and to us that meant we could expect a lot more. :) the party was big and awesome and we had a great time capturing everything from their sweet private dinner to the crazy dance party complete with lots of tambourines (kelly’s favorite!). they just don’t miss one moment of fun- every second was bursting with happiness and energy and love.

andrew, knowing that kelly had been looking for a pair of emerald earrings and knowing that she had yet to find any she liked, surprised her with the most perfect pair. she was so touched that he’d found them and so excited that she wore them all day!

kelly & andrew decided ahead of time that they didn’t want to see one another before the ceremony but andrew, unbeknownst to kelly, figured out a way that he could at least give her a kiss before she walked down the aisle. the moment was quick and sweet, and i love that his mom helped him prepare. :)

i love this private, quiet moment just after the ceremony:

andrew called kelly up to the stage and gave her a big box containing his and her’s tambourines- that’s true love! :)

kelly & andrew, congratulations! we are so so happy for you two and we wish you the very best. thank you so much for letting us into your world to capture such a special day!
