Everything about Jessica and Anthony’s wedding was beautiful and seamless. The gorgeous weather made for a perfect day of cocktails in the garden and the natural light streaming through windows gave their ceremony a freshness only brought about by love in the air. As photographers it made our job easy. As lovers of love, it made our hearts skip a beat.

One of the many things that we loved about Jessica and Anthony’s wedding was how their personalities showed through in every detail of their day. Whether it was the sweet gesture of Anthony sending Jessica fresh flowers that morning, or the girls wearing converse sneakers to dance the night away, we loved how much fun these two had just being themselves on their wedding day.

We are so grateful that we were able to be a part of their story. We’re also grateful for the food we got to eat (the Mahi with Mango Salsa was to die for)! But mostly, we’re so glad we got to spend the day capturing part of Jessica and Anthony’s love story. We hope it’s filled with joy, laughter and many more days of fresh flowers.

Music + champagne kept the girls happy and relaxed while getting ready. During a morning toast Jessica’s bridesmaids described her as “generous, kind, my better half (twins), compassionate, and beautiful”. We felt every single one of those while working with her throughout her wedding journey.

She said “this is the moment I have been dreaming of since I was six years old.” Emotions were high, but her father provided a steady arm for his little girl.

The speeches at the reception had the bride and groom smiling and laughing. Anthony’s best man talked about the generous, kind heart that “Tony” had. He shared a short story with everyone about his best friend. In college, Tony gave his bedroom up for another guy because he found out he had no where to go. He wasn’t even Tony’s friend. That just shows a glimpse into Anthony’s heart. It was clear that these two were very loved and supported by their friends and family.

Y’all I {Leigh} don’t even like cake. But Jill made the most incredible banana cake with chocolate filling and a peanut butter icing. OH.MY.GOSH. It was INCREDIBLE!

top-atlanta-wedding-photographers_leigh-and-becca_wagner-wedding_fort-valley-georgia_0146The sun went down and the dancing began! We’ve never seen a group of people get so into the YMCA! We were impressed!
