Being surrounded by beauty when we go to work is most certainly a perk of being a photographer. The venues, the flowers, the details! We love them all! But something really special happens when you meet a couple whose beautiful relationship outshines any wedding detail. Ashley and Andrew are definitely those kind of people. And while their love is every present and abundant, we were not surprised when their wedding day was just as lovely as they are.
On a sunny day in Georgia, at Chateau Elan to be exact, we were able to capture some of the sweetest moments between Andrew and Ashley. It only took one look at her groom to settle all of Ashley’s wedding day jitters, and Andrew was in complete awe of Ashley’s beauty that day. Between tears, sweet kisses and lots of laughter, Andrew and Ashley shared a magical wedding day with friends, family and loved ones. It’s an honor to be in these moments and capture the emotion and of course beauty, but we’re under the impression that the sun shines a little bit brighter for people like Ashley and Andrew!
Ashley and Andrew decided to do their first looks and formal photos at Chateau Elan. We cannot recommend this enough to couples who want epic photos outside of their actual venues!
All Ashley needed to calm her nerves was to see Andrew that day.
Her girls, we think, just needed a bit of bubbly!
Andrew could not contain himself when he saw Ashley for the first time. It was such an emotional and joyful moment for them both.
We can not get over these flowers. Such beautiful colors and mixture of florals, we were immediately blown away!
Ashley surprised Andrew by giving him a book of love letters she began writing for him when they began dating. Andrew was completely touched and we know he will cherish that book for a lifetime.
Ashely’s sweet father walked her down the aisle to Andrew who could not take his eyes off of his stunning bride.
Again, these flowers! We love the unique ways they were displayed at the reception.
The sun went down and the dancing began!
A speech and dance with dad, always a favorite moment of ours. But these two had such a special bond that made for extra special moments.
The party kicked into high gear when the guests were given maracas!
A perfect end to a perfect night for the couple who value the important things in life. Like silly photo booth pictures from their wedding day. Congrats to Ashley and Andrew! We’re certain your marriage will be full of love and laughter!
