Couples like Kaley & Justin are the reason I love photographing weddings! When I arrived on Kaley and Justin’s wedding day, I knew I was in for a treat. Not only did I fall in love with them after their Piedmont Park engagement session, but I adored their vision for the day!
We began at Monteluce Winery & Resort and then traveled to one of my favorite venues in Georgia, Neverland Farms, where the ceremony and reception would take place. I began Kaley & Justin’s wedding day already knowing that the pictures would be amazing! Both of them are absolute stunners, and Kaley has such an easy elegance about her that the camera loves. Not to mention, she wore one of my favorite wedding dress designers, Hayley Paige, and she looked like she’d stepped right off the cover of a magazine! Pinch me, right?
Kaley & Justin chose to share a first look, and it was one of the most beautiful I’ve ever witnessed as a wedding photographer. We were in tears witnessing their perfect moment! Not every couple I photograph chooses to share a first look, but I’m so thankful that Kaley and Justin did. These two needed to see each other before their big moment! And I loved watching the stress and nerves of the day fade away as they held each other for a few moments. Justin waited for his bride on a wooden dock, surrounded by flowers, in the middle of a clear pond. He looked like the Bachelor! When she walked up to him, it was perfect! And while I’d continue trying to describe how beautiful was, I can’t do it justice!
Of course, one of my favorite moments (and a staple at Neverland Farms) happened at the start of the ceremony. After Justin was in place and all of their bridal party had processed, there was a moment of silence. Their guests began looking around, wondering where Kaley was, when a bell rang out. Slowly, you could hear a crescendo of a horse’s hooves clicking on the path leading to the ceremony site. I loved watching everyone’s heads turn! Hands flew to chests in amazement and guests wiped tears away as Kaley arrived with her father in a horse-drawn carriage. Talk about magic, y’all! Not only that, but after the ceremony, we were graced by not one, but TWO rainbows! What a blessing!
It was such a treat to get to be a part of Kaley & Justin’s wedding day! My job is such an honor, and I’m always thankful that couples like them trust me with these memories!
