The Perfect Setting
I LOVE shooting small, intimate weddings, and I was recently blessed in offering to do so for a couple at a private ceremony, located at a cabin tucked within the winding roads of Coosawattee. The air was cool and crisp; sunlight streamed down through tree branches; water glistened and rippled beautifully in the property’s small lake. It was a beautiful day on May 4th, 2016 as the closest of friends and family came together in support of American Legion Georgia Post 82 Commander Dennis Young, and his bride, Marjorie Williams.
A Walk to Remember
Adorned in a creamy white sleeveless knee length dress, Marjorie walked down stone driveway and wooden steps, arm-in-arm with the Best Man. Friend Jim Brackin sang a romantic tune as the bride, beaming, descended down to the dock to meet her groom. Upon reaching him, hands embraced, eyes locked, mouths turned upwards into smiles, and as the melody carried on and came to a close, Marjorie danced, twirling lightly and playfully away from Dennis and then back again.
Is it just me, or is there something about personalized vows that are just amazing? Even though this couple kept theirs’ simple and sweet, the joy and sentiment between the two could definitely be felt by all present. Vows given, rings exchanged (despite a very minor mishap where one of the rings had to be retrieved from the cabin), couple announced husband and wife, and the kiss…
Smiling faces, pats on the back, and felicitations… There were champagne toasts, cutting of the cake, and a bit unusual of a bouquet toss.
I am so happy to have been able to assist them in capturing these memories they made on this beautiful occasion, and in giving these newlyweds the opportunity to share their love with those they hold close in their hearts through my photography.
Thank you, Marjorie & Dennis, for allowing me to document this special day for you! I wish you two the absolute best for your years together, and I hope they are plentiful and exceptionally blessed! Congratulations!
