We got to meet Danni, Alison and Tye (their wedding planner) what feels like ages ago through a facetime type call and got to know them since they would be planning from Maryland. As time went on we kept in touch and talked a lot with Tye and planned their engagement session that we posted earlier this year and got to see their eyes light up talking about how God brought them together and how excited they were for the big day to come!
Fast forward to the wedding day and we set off early from Augusta with our third shooter Tom to be sure to arrive early at the venue and oh boy, just look at this venue.. We were shocked when we drove to Douglasville Ga and got out of the car to see this amazing property.
We started off the day by checking out some of the decor that featured photos from the engagement session, getting some venue photos and then drove to the bride to bride to get the getting ready shots. Her hair was already finished, pulled back in an elegant bun which had been done at another location earlier. The makeup artist was a wiz and a pleasure to work with.
Back at the venue after all the girls had their beautiful dresses on, we captured the sweet moment of Danni and Alison exchanging their love before the ceremony as they held each others hand from behind a door to the bridal suit. I couldn’t help but get a little misty eyed seeing the pure joy on their faces as they spoke to one another.
The ceremony was a hot one…. but oh so beautiful. Did I mention that view?? Many family members went up to sing, and although we couldn’t understand much of anything being said, you could tell the overwhelming love the family has for this couple.
The reception brought some much needed cool air and the amazing smell of the food wafting from the kitchen. As the guest dined on the appetizers, we were able to capture some of the bridal party and romantic shots.
The cake cutting and bouquet toss were very sweet and most of the family was involved with both. It’s just so wonderful to see a couple being supported by so many people.
They opted for an elegant sparkler exit and I think the photos do the beauty of it justice. (If I do say so myself)
Here’s to a bright and blessed future to the new Mr. and Mrs. Andrade.
