Imagine dating the love of your life for 7 years and having many of those 7 years be long distance. Now imagine a beautiful summer day with a gentle breeze, blue skies, the most beautiful of wedding gowns, gorgeous flowers and rolling hills. Imagine again that your dreams are coming true as you walk towards your soon-to-be spouse as friends and family look on with tears in their eyes because everyone watching is as excited as you are that this day has arrived!
Kirsten and Billy could not have asked for a more meaningful day. From the moment I first heard from them, their goal for their wedding day was for Jesus to be the center of it all. And it was so evident that He was there!! From Kirsten’s sweet bridesmaids surrounding her in prayer before going to see Billy, to the message from the minister, to the vows they exchanged, to the most beautiful sunset, God was most definitely present for their wedding day.
The moment Kirsten and Billy saw each other during their First Look, their smiles multiplied by 10 and did not disappear from their faces the rest of the day. I’d even be willing to bet those smiles are still going strong almost a week later!
You guys, last Saturday was a dream and I’m beyond thankful to have been a part of it with you. Thank you for trusting me to capture such an amazing day! I hope you enjoy a peek back at your wedding through my eyes :-)
I LOVED all of Kirsten’s pink and blush details, but her DRESS!! Her dress was my favorite!
Kirsten! Seriously stunning!
Chattooga Belle Farm is beautiful no matter what time of year it is!
I mean, she’s just beautiful!
First Looks get me every time!
That sweet ring bearer! He started down the aisle by himself, made it about 3 feet then turned and ran back to the coordinator!
Thankfully he felt better going down the aisle with the flower girls and helping them with their job of tossing rose petals. Seriously so cute!
You KNOW they’re happy when they skip down the aisle as husband and wife!
Stop it!! You guys made my job SO easy!
I’m loving this trend of same skirts with different tops for the bridesmaids.
My second shooter, Christy Mason, snagged the incredible photo of the ring bearer on the left. Oh my gosh, be still my heart!
Sunset portraits at Chattooga Belle NEVER disappoint!
This one is by far a favorite! You guys are so amazing!
You may have noticed that Kirsten spent most of her day spinning, tossing, and swaying her wedding gown. But it was perfect for it!
I wasn’t kidding about the sunset… it was beautiful!
Thank you SO MUCH to all of the amazing vendors, friends, and family who made this day possible for Kirsten + Billy!
