It was an unusually rainy week that week. After 6 straight days of rain with a forecast of 70% chance on her wedding day, Katie lived on the hope and prayer that the rain would hold off for her ceremony. As you can see her prayers were answered. About 5 hours before the ceremony the clouds parted, and the sun shined brighter than it had in a long, long time. Katie was ecstatic that she would get to be the first bride married at “THE pecan tree”.

Eason is the center of attention wherever he is. A fourth generation family farmer, he knows what it’s like to work hard. But after shooting his wedding I {Leigh} can say with certainty, he also knows how to play just as hard. (Check him out during that garter toss!) He’s a mans man, but a complete softy when it comes to Katie. Katie is a quiet soul and hates attention. She puts everyone else’s needs above her own and wants everyone around her to be comfortable and happy. Meeting them separately they seemed so different, but when they got together it was evident they couldn’t be more perfect for each other. <3

 

Eason, what was your favorite part of your wedding day? Wow, that’s a tough question because not only was the whole day special but the weeks and months leading up to that special day were simply amazing to me. The preparations and planning and everyone that had a part in the wedding just shows me and Katie how special we are to everyone. God has truly blessed mine and Katie’s life and we know He walks beside us each and everyday. I am truly blessed and so thankful that I am married to such an amazing woman who loves me with every bone in her body and I love her just the same!

Katie ran around the bridal suite making sure everyone had what they needed, including us. I don’t know if it was nerves, her natural tendency to take care of others, or both but we do know this — nobody has 10 bridesmaids unless they have an extremely large family or a lot of people who care about them. We know without a doubt that, for Katie, it’s the latter.

There weren’t many “appropriate” pictures of these boys, but boy were they fun. Here’s the G-rated version of their antics.

We loved the family heirlooms that were incorporated into this wedding. One of them being this very, very old bible that carried Eason + Katie’s rings. So special and unique to them!

Taking Eason’s portraits with the red barn in the background and the crop field across the street were perfect backdrops for him, he’s a farmer at Peavy Farms!

Look at those dimples! Katie carried simple, elegant lillies and wore her late grandmothers London Blue stone necklace. She looked stunning!

Debbie Williams at the Vienna Flower Shop did an awesome job of coordinating the bridesmaids bouquets to Katie’s without being too matchy matchy.

Eason + Katie’s first look will be one we never forget — super emotional and they both radiated joy when they finally got to see each other. Eason’s exact words were “now I can relax! I’ve been nervous all day, but now that I’ve seen you I’m just ready to do this!”

Sometimes people ask us if we take individuals of the bridal parties with the bride and groom. The answers is yes and we love it! In just a few minutes you get to see everyone’s personalities come out and boy were these groomsmen full of personality!

We take the traditional shots that mom and grandma will want, but sometimes it’s nice to have a more casual photo of you with your girlfriends. The bride can look back and really see her friends in these photos more than in the formal posed shots.

These kids. I mean, I’m pretty sure this is my favorite flower girl/ring bearer shot EVER. I can’t even…..

This old pecan tree is even grander in real life. It stands so high above the small pines around it. It was the perfect backdrop for Eason + Katie’s rustic, farm wedding! (P.S. If you haven’t checked out Twin Oaks Farm yet and you are looking for a farm venue, look no further. Set on 100’s of acres there are so many options to make your wedding unique. And no, we weren’t paid to say that!)

Twin Oaks Wedding_Perry Georgia Wedding PhotographersTwin Oaks Wedding_Perry Georgia Wedding PhotographersJust before Katie walked down the aisle I looked back and saw this moment happening. I ran between the pines a couple of rows over and had just enough time to snap this. <3

We love this set of photos. Dad so full of pride, Katie’s sister in tears that her little sister is getting married, Eason giving her the “gosh I can’t believe you’re about to be my wife” face, and Katie bouncing back and forth saying “Let me hold my man already” face. Katie gave Eason a big embrace when she did get to him and both mamas and grandma’s got a kick out of it:)

Kelly Hamsley is the best y’all. Her food is delicious and the presentation is top notch. If you are having a buffet style dinner for your reception, you need to give this lady a call. I’ll even give you a link to her to make it easier–Katerings by Kelly

The team at Katerings by Kelly puts this setup together for the kiddos. It’s supposed to be for kids only, but I definitely saw a few adults sneaking some chex mix!

There is so much we could say about this reception, but we think the photos speak for themselves! FUN-FUN-FUN is all we will say!

The monogrammed cake by Heather Bartlett at Heather’s Cakes and Confections was as tasty as it was beautiful. And the grooms cake couldn’t have been more appropriate.

I can’t end this post without saying THANK YOU to Jessica Mottola of J. Messer Photography for coming along to shoot with me. She showed me some new things, gave me a different set of eyes that opened by horizons, and most of all supported me every step of the way. Thank you love, I loved working with you!
