Whwew! I know it looks like there hasn’t been anything going on over here, but the truth is, I’ve been too busy to catch up. So, the first thing I want to share with you is Anne and Brad’s Wedding. We got to know Anne and Brad during their Engagement Session at Brad’s home about a month ago.
Their wedding was just as amazing. Anne and Brad were married at the First United Methodist Church in Dallas, Georgia and enjoyed their reception at the Ragsdale Inn, just down the street from the church. Anne and Brad are so loving to each other, and so romantic. You can just tell when two people have a deep, genuine care and concern for each other and these two do.
Their wedding was simple and gorgeous. Let’s have a look!
Anne’s wedding day style was classically simple with a vintage flavor. Even her shoes were classic with a whisper of vintage flair.
Anne and Brad were married just after Thanksgiving, so it was going to be cold outside. Especially for the carriage ride they had planned through downtown Dallas.
While I was covering the lovely ladies getting ready, Nathan was hanging out with the guys downstairs getting ready. He is getting really great at dynamically capturing the details of the day.
Isn’t Anne’s ring gorgeous?
I snuck downstairs and got a peek of Brad through the little window.
Anne had perfect makeup all day long!
Angela from Wingers Media
covered the event and did some really sweet interviews before the ceremony.
Sigh. I. Love. This.
(couldn’t you see this as a huge framed portrait in a serene bedroom? Or the living room?
We had a great time hanging out with Anne’s family before the ceremony began.
Another classic portrait. Sigh.
My favorite of the day. It’s such a creamy, buttery photo.
We took the guys outside for some sunshine and brisk, fresh air.
And the girls had some extra time before the ceremony to hang out and play around. They were too much fun!
This is a photo of Anne’s dad through the back doors of the sanctuary before he and Anne walked down the aisle.
The sanctuary was really gorgeous, with beautiful deep colored wood. Brad’s uncle was an honored guest at the ceremony and stood up front with the men. It was
I love the fact that we were able to capture the ring exchange from an angle that made it easy to see.
I know Brad isn’t smiling in this photo, but he was so sweet and emotional that this one is a classic.
Our guest of honor in the receiving line….
After the ceremony we headed to downtown Dallas, Georgia for some quiet time with just Anne and Brad. I love the way Brad looks at Anne.
Aren’t they precious?!
Anne saw a similar photo to this in a magazine and loved the drama. Now she has some drama of her own!
Totally. Gallery. Worthy.
After our quiet time in downtown, Anne and Brad were excited to take their carriage ride to the Ragsdale Inn. Anne said a quick “hello” to the horse before getting in the carriage.
Anne and Brad headed into the house and spared no time getting to the first dance.
Christmas trees and wedding cakes. These are a few of my favorite things.
What a gorgeous dress.
Anne’s smile in this photo just makes me happy.
There was a little hokey pokey going on during the reception….
Story time! Anne’s dad was really great for the camera, but this particular instance I was trying to get a photo of him and Anne’s sister just sitting and chatting with the family. He knew I was there and was covering his face waiting on me to take a photo. I knew what he was doing so I tricked him into getting this really great expression from him. :)
I am not real sure, but I think the bouquet accidentally on purpose changed hands sometime after the catch….
Sparklers were a perfect way to light up the cold winter night.
After the love birds slipped away, the girls had a great time playing with a TON of sparklers! :)
It was a perfect wedding and we are so happy for Anne and Brad. They have a couple more sessions coming up in the near future and we can’t wait to share them, too!
