Oh gosh, I don't even know where to start on this one. I loved EVERYTHING about this wedding. Paul and Nikole had a wonderfully colorful, elegant and fun wedding, and I was blessed to be a part of it. Nikole made her passion for her photos clear from the first time we met, so naturally they chose to see each other before the ceremony and we wandered around Atlanta snapping photos at the Georgia Tech campus, Piedmont Park and, of course, the church they were married in. We could not have asked for a more perfect day - the weather was warm and breezy, and the fall color which I love so much was out in full force! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
I'll start with some of my favorite details. I was IN LOVE with Nikole's bouquet! It reminded me of by own beautiful bouquet on my wedding day. What can I say, Nikole and I have exceptional taste! :)
Debby Wood with Brides and Blooms did such a beautiful job with the flowers! It was a joy to work with her and capture the beauty of her designs.
Paul & Nikole's wedding day was full of laughter, which everyone knows is my favorite thing in the world to capture!
The beautiful bride and handsome groom:
For their first look, Nikole had her bridesmaids cover Paul's eyes and walk him down the aisle to where she waited. It was so special for her to share this moment with her closest friends and family.
Our first stop of the day was at Tech Tower for some portraits of the beautiful couple. I love these!
Holy sweet potatoes! Check out those beautiful fall colors! :)
These three are my absolute favorites of the day. Why? I'm glad you asked! :) Sometimes, when I instruct a couple to pose a certain way, it is beautiful and flawless and.. well.. staged. Yep. I said it. As beautiful as these photos are, they tend to feel staged. Sometimes, though, I ask a couple to pose a certain way, something goes wrong, and they crumple into a pile of giggles and laughter. These are my favorite moments to capture, because they are completely candid and reveal pure joy and fun, as you can see below.
I don't usually post wedding party photos, but I'm just so gloriously excited about the bright yellow trees that we found in Piedmont Park. I had to show them off.
After the ceremony, we braved the chill to get some photos with the Atlanta skyline. I love these (getting tired of this phrase yet? Haha!)
There you have it! A perfect fall wedding. Paul and Nikole, the love you share is a treasure, and I'm so glad you invited me to celebrate it with you. I wish you lots of joy and laughter in your married life!
