This one was a little different. A morning ceremony at Berry’s iconic Frost Chapel followed by a brunch and donuts reception at stunning Oak Hill? All with some of the nicest and most genuine people I’ve met in a long time. I’m here for it, 100%. But to be completely honest, I was nervous about this one at first. Because of timing and schedules, I knew I wouldn’t get to spend much time getting to know Maggie and Jaden. In fact, I didn’t meet Jaden until the night before the wedding. The relationships I form with my couples through the planning process means a lot to me and puts everyone more at ease on the wedding day. So I was a little unsure about not having much of that time with these two. But all I can say is wow! Sometimes, when people are meant to cross paths with you, they are just meant to be there. I never once felt out of place with these two or their family and friends. In fact, Maggie, Jaden and their friends and family were such rockstars! They made my job effortless and left us all feeling like old friends by the end of the day.
Maggie described their wedding as simple and elegant and her bridal style nailed that perfectly. From her classic 3 piece gown to her all white bouquet, it all screamed simple elegance! And can we just talk about that golden morning light for Maggie’s bridal portraits. If these shots don’t make all of your southern wedding dreams come true, well, I don’t even know what to tell you. It was truly a day full of love, a little mix of tradition and Maggie and Jaden making it their own. The very first time I spoke to Maggie’s mom, she described her Maggie as an old soul. And I can say, in the best way possible, it was the perfect way to put it. These two took their day in stride, soaked up the time together as well as with their loved ones. They never even complained about my million photo ideas at the hottest part of an August day in Georgia. It was a perfect day and I am so grateful to have met these two and captured their special day!
