There’s just something about traveling for a wedding that is exhilarating. I’m not a huge fan of airports, planes or hotels, but the change of scenery is so inspiring, especially when the place we are headed is like an untouched paradise. Even the air and light in Rockmart, Georgia (about an hour from Atlanta) is different. Warm, glowing, fresh, green and yellow with life and abundance.
The forecast for Sara + Chris’s wedding day was gloomy. We were ready with umbrellas and alternate plans. We even started earlier just in case of a downpour. It looked to be an absolute certainty. But Mother Nature was on our side last Saturday, and there was nothing but beautiful cloudy skies. No harsh sunlight or shadows, no intense heat, and thankfully, no rain.
I’m posting more than I had planned for a preview, but I guess that’s okay. ;) I’ll share the rest of the details when I get a full blog post up. In the meantime, here’s a peek.
Meet Sarah and Adam. Some might have said they were a very unlikely couple. No matter how great they actually turned out to be for each other, I doubt anyone predicted it at first. Why? hahahaha… well …
Sarah – vegetarian
Adam – avid hunter
I laughed pretty hard when Sarah told me that at our first meeting. I dont think she is a vegetarian anymore… :)
Sarah and Adam put together a beautiful wedding at the Lake House on Lake Granbury. It doesnt get much more “do it yourself” than this. Adam actually built the wooden staircase that now goes from the house to the ceremony area, as well as the benches that the guests sat on during the ceremony. (Yep – I’m serious!) The couple rented tables made from vintage doors, as well as mismatched vintage dining chairs. The setting was perfect for their intimate wedding celebration. Sarah’s two daughters were a beautiful part of the wedding as well. During the reception, I watched Adam pick up his new youngest daughter and watch his now-wife dance with her dad. *sniff*
I am always honored to be chosen to photograph someone’s wedding day, and this one is definitely no exception. Here are some of my favorite images from the day.
You are truly brilliant – a genius. Your brain amazes me.
You make me laugh,
you make me proud,
and you make me wonder how I got so lucky.
I love to hear you sing. I love to watch you think. I love that I was wrong to feel despair when we found out about your autism. I have never been so wrong to worry. You are perfect.
No one will ever love you like I do.
