Atlanta, Georgia Wedding
It all started in the mountains of Virginia. It’s where Brittany trusted me enough to drag Jeff and her all over the snowy slopes of Wintergreen for engagement photos. Fast forward a year later and I am stepping foot off an airport into a city that I have only seen on TV. Brittany and Jeff both lived in Lynchburg, Virginia but Brittany grew up in Georgia and wanted her family close by her for their big day.
After what seemed like the craziest year of events for Brittany and Jeff, dealing with new jobs, health concerns, and business stability, they were finally set to be married. The Ashton Gardens Venue was located in Sugar Hill, Georgia just outside the city limits of Atlanta. To say that it was beautiful is an understatement. The ceremony site featured a wall of glass that allowed the light from outside to brighten the already excited faces of the guest and bridal party. The reception was full of sprawling staircases that emptied out to a dark hardwood dance floor. The wedding party sat directly across from the DJ who, not only rocked the doors off the place but also included illuminated drums that were used through the night.
Then there was the bridal party. Full of family and friends on both sides that truly loved Jeff and Brittany with all their hearts. Tears, laughter, and memorable quotes where shared and will never be forgotten. The most touching of all this was Brittany’s dad. His girl was getting married and when he saw Brittany in her dress for the full time you could his eyes light up so bright and then fill with tears and his heart was overflowing with emotions. A dad with so much love and admiration for his daughter was going to see another man try to keep building upon what her dad has started so long ago.
Brittany and Jeff shared their day with some many people, but at the end of the day, they went from two people chasing a crazy dream to one powerfully driven force that was fueled by love and desire. They are made to have the world watch them from a distance and show people how its supposed to look. How to love through it all!
Thank you so much to Brittany and Jeff, and their welcoming family, for allowing me to be a part of such a beautiful day, and of two beautiful lives.
