The stunning Meghan and Craig, shot on quite possibly the brightest and windiest, most perfect day in Dahlonega. We also took a quick jaunt over to Montaluce vineyards, one of my hubby and mine’s most favorite weekend places to waste a perfectly good afternoon…

Just a few images from Devon & Ryan’s beautiful couple shoot within a hidden garden on the University of Georgia campus. They told me that if you walk through those arches as an undergrad, you will fail to graduate! Was funny to see students intuitively avoid it.

You can see all the photos from their heartfelt wedding day in Athens here.

Jesse and Marty were married during a beautiful sunset ceremony dockside in their parents’ hometown of River Plantation, Augusta. It was truly the most festive, joy-filled ceremony I’ve yet to witness, where dear friends and family waved banners and literally stomped to the music, following them down the dock to the pavilion where their reception was held. My dear friend, Dawn Gahan, was present yet again to lovingly craft, coordinate and facilitate many of the sweet details and festivities. How could you not fall in love with these two who came up with the idea of  having illustrated “pickle-jar haikus”  (Marty himself wrote) as centerpieces on all the tables? I don’t think I stopped smiling the entire time I was shooting…

You can view ALL the details, crazy dancing and happy tear-filled toasts right here.

And a massive ‘thank you’ to the amazing Jess for coming up to Atlanta to shoot with me!
