allie & yuval are married!

By | Weddings | One Comment

allie & yuval met in paris while studying abroad. pause. can you even imagine?? they began their relationship in the most romantic city in the world, surrounded by the beauty that movies are, literally, made of, and now they’re married. i cannot think of a way this story could be more like a fairytale. and while there is sparkle and magic to their connection, they are also obviously, truly, best friends. they’re down to earth, funny and overflowing with love for one another and everyone around them. their wedding day was charged with energy and happiness that radiated from allie & yuval and brought everyone together in a beautiful celebration. matt & i felt so lucky to spend the day surrounded by an incredible group of people- capturing their love for one another and their happiness for allie & yuval. these two really are so, so special. some people radiate so much sunshine that, apparently, the actual sun doesn’t really feel the need to come out. while the rain clouds covered the city in a cool, grey blanket, allie & yuval prepared for their wedding. the rain plan was a go and we began portraits inside. and just like we expected after knowing them for only a little while, allie & yuval did not miss a beat. :)  plus, we found on own sun in the back staircase. ;) just before the ceremony started, allie & yuval traded letters they’d written to one another. they took their time reading them- pausing often to just look into one another’s eyes and share a sweet moment. they were calm but excited- and gloriously happy. :) one of allie & yuval’s many talented friends, jillian blazek, designed these adorable tumblers as well as their programs- which i looooved! allie & yuval’s friends, the shadowboxers, played at their wedding- what an incredibly talented group of guys!
allie & yuval, congratulations! we are so very happy for you two and thankful we were there to capture such a beautiful day. best wishes!

margaret & adam are married!

i’ve known margaret for at least 12 years- maybe longer- and although i can’t remember the very first time i met her, she’s always stood out in my mind as one of the strongest women i know. she’s fiercely loyal, deeply caring and always ready with a witty quip that will never fail to elicit laughter or an ‘amen!’ she’s one of those people that keeps you on your toes- i can never guess what she’ll be up to next- in the last couple of years alone she’s become an inspiration to many as she’s jumped head first into running and working out, she’s worked tirelessly to complete her doula training so that she can encourage and support families during birth, and most importantly, she and adam have grown into a beautiful family and decided to get married. just beautiful. :) though i don’t know him quite as well, adam seems to be the perfect partner for margaret in every way. they match each other wit for wit and their relationship is full of laughter and the sly smiles that come with inside jokes and a deep understanding of the other. adam is a multitalented musician, producer and father and it’s so sweet to see margaret swoon when he’s around- she’s clearly smitten. capturing their wedding was such a joy!

margaret’s mom and best friend, emily, never left her side- it was so sweet and intimate to spend my time with just the three of them as they relaxed together before the ceremony.

meanwhile, matt was hanging out with adam as he helped his son, paul, finish getting ready- i love the tenderness in these images.

when you’re music lovers like margaret & adam, you call on awesome bands like ruby velle and the soulphonics and blackfoot gypsies and dance the night away!

margaret & adam’s wedding took place during one of the largest music festivals of the year- jazzfest. when they found out they chose to think this was the perfect setting for their wedding rather than feel stressed- love them for that! it ended up being the most perfect atlanta day full of people having a good time with friends and family and everyone enjoying the music together- so very margaret & adam. :)

mmtm & adam, thank you both so much for including us in this celebration- capturing every moment was a joy! we wish you the very best!
