Happy Wednesday, friends!
A little over a year ago, I was in 30A photographing Jordan & Casey’s wedding. This past weekend, I had the biggest pleasure of celebrating with Laura and Trent as they said “I do” at their Walters Barn Wedding! Trent happens to be Casey’s younger brother, and I am so thankful for the Thompson family for allowing me to capture both of their son’s weddings a little over a year apart! What a gift that is!
Now, let me start by saying that EVERY single wedding that I do is extremely special to me. But there’s something so sweet about being able to capture your dear friends wedding. Trent and Mitch (my boyfriend) have been best friends since fifth grade. So of course I have known Trent since the very beginning of Mitch and my relationship. I absolutely adore Trent and Laura, and I am so thankful for their friendship!! And it has just been the biggest joy to witness their love grow into what it is today!
After being a part of their proposal, and doing their engagement session, I seriously couldn’t WAIT for their wedding! And y’all, everything about their day was absolutely wonderful!! To start, the Walters Barn was the perfect venue. Located in north Georgia, their beautiful barn sits amongst rolling hills and gorgeous scenery. When I drove down the winding road to the barn, I instantly knew why Laura & Trent fell in love with this place! They even had cows and a donkey running around in the pastures! The sweetest little visitors!!
To go along with the wonderful scenery, I couldn’t have asked to be surrounded by a better group of people the entire day. The entire bridal party made the day such a breeze, and I couldn’t help but stare at how handsome Mitch (and all of the other groomsmen) cleaned up! And of course, all of Laura’s bridesmaids looked stunning in their navy dresses! I loved how well the light gray suits and dark dresses complimented each other. Besides a few minutes of some drizzling, we were seriously blessed with the BEST outdoor July wedding weather. We were fully prepared for it to be a hot one, but the overcast weather at times provided us with some much needed shade and breeze! Truly a win-win!!
Laura and Trent, I could go on for pages on how much I adore y’all and how thankful I am to have y’all in my life. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for loving me and trusting me enough to capture the most special and intimate milestones in y’all’s lives! Y’all’s wedding is one that I will never forget, and I pray y’all will fall more in love with each other every single day!
My biggest congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Thompson!! So much love for y’all!!
One of my FAVORITES! Every bride deserves a good twirl on her wedding day!
Daddy/daughter first looks. Melts my heart every single time
Had to include this picture in here! Love this Thompson crew so much!
