Southside Church of God | Alma, GA | July 30, 2016
Angel and Chris got married this weekend in South Georgia. How did Ben and I get hooked up with a wedding in South Georgia? Well, Angel met us at the Georgia Bridal Show back in January when we went to the Athens show. She and her bridesmaid, Ashley, were there, and the two of them had such a good time talking with us at the show that Angel decided to book us that day! Ben and I were thrilled!
I got to meet Chris at their engagement session at Stone Mountain earlier this summer and immediately liked him and the two of them together. I found that Angel and I have a common love for Harry Potter and are (I was) both teachers and Chris has an artistic side like I do. He’s a graphic designer for his business with his best man, John. They are creating card and video games! How cool is that??
Ben and I went down to Alma this past weekend. Despite being a Georgia Studies teacher for 7 years and knowing a lot of Georgia geography, I couldn’t have told you where Alma was located. If you know where Waycross or the Okefenokee Swamp is located in South Georgia, it’s a little further north than that. But more importantly, Alma is in BACON County! Mmmmm… bacon. 😉 I loved how quaint and cute Alma is. It reminded me a lot of my small hometown of Tyrone, except that Tyrone is a suburb of Atlanta with the big city close by.
Whether it was their First Look and the sweet emotions they showed in seeing each other to their sweet cuddles and kisses throughout the day to Chris seeing Angel walk down the aisle to him, Chris and Angel’s love for each other was apparent throughout the day. I loved getting to capture that for them! Thank you so much Angel and Chris for having Ben and me travel down and capture your day. It meant so much that you would ask us to come down and take pictures for y’all!
I love the Converse shoes! The guys had blue Converses and the girls had white ones! We went over to the beautiful Inn at Blueberry Plantation to get ready and take pictures before the ceremony. It was an awesome location. I am so glad we were able to take pictures there! Brother gets a First Look! Too cute! You can tell Dalton and Angel are really close! Chris’ socks are Gryffindor colors in honor of Angel! I love every part of this picture that Ben captured! When groomsmen pin on each other’s boutonnieres. First Look time! Chris kept saying, “You take my breath away” over and over. I love these pictures we took in the trees right here. It was such a pretty spot! Probably one of my favorites of the day, right here! Sweet snuggles! Angel and her bridesmaids and man of honor Wedding party selfie! Anyone see the cake topper for Chris’ groom’s cake?? Sweet First Dance!
Best Men and Man of Honor and Maid of Honor speeches Brother and sister having a lot of fun dancing! Tons of laughter and smiles all around all night long! Checking out the same-day reception slideshow
