Simple. Elegant. Wonderful :) These are the words I would use to describe Ed & Amanda's wedding. It was such a pleasure to photograph, because it was beautiful without being a production. They gathered with their family and friends at Glenn Memorial on the Emory campus, took each others hands in the Little Chapel and vowed to love each other till death do they part. Every detail from the lilies and pearls to her dress and choice of venue reflected Amanda's love of classic romance. She and Ed wanted pictures that were simple and elegant, and I loved capturing the two of them.
I'm seriously loving these old Hollywood black and whites. They have a beautiful depth to them. Plus, Amanda looks amazing in her dress!
See what I mean? :)
Ed looks equally handsome in his tux.
Amanda asked her two sisters and best friend to be her bridesmaids. Want to guess what else this group has in common besides being in the wedding party? They're all my Alpha Gam sisters! I'm so lucky :)
The Little Chapel is such a beautiful location for a wedding ceremony. The aisle is about 30 feet long, and the ceilings are about 40 feet high. It was built in the 1920's, and all of the moldings on the inside were carved by hand. Amazing.
Happily married! :)
Alone at last.
I love Emory's campus. Everywhere you turn there's another beautiful place to photograph.
Once we finished up at Glenn, we headed to the Old Courthouse in Decatur for a few more photos and for the reception. Like the sneak peek I posted over the weekend, these photos were taken on the back steps of the courthouse.
With Ed and Amanda's portraits out of the way, it was time for the receptio. Bring on the dancing!
I love this shot of Amanda's parents dancing.
And this one of Ed's grandparents dancing. I have to take a moment to tell you about Ed's grandfather. He's a little pretender. During the ceremony and family photos, he stepped very carefully and gave the impression that he was fragile. Then at the reception, he grabs his wife's hand and starts spinning her on the dance floor! Amazing! :)
