I was so excited to kick off the first wedding of our season with Alex and Emi! It never gets old when I have the honor of photographing a childhood friend’s wedding day! Seeing her dreams come true and celebrating alongside their families is such a joy!
There were so many sweet details (and tears!) throughout the day. Family and friends shared stories from their childhoods and early stages of their relationship! And light-heartedly laughed as they recounted the memory of Alex’s grand plan to propose to Emi on one of their adventures across the country to San Francisco, California… though it didn’t quite go exactly as Alex planned! BUT instead, they shared a special moment later in Augusta at Boll Weevil, the place where they shared their first date (and also got their wedding cake from!).
We had clear skies and a touch of wind at Knoll Farm in Appling. Perfect weather for an jaw dropping veil throw! 😉 Emi and Alex picked out the most gorgeous color pallet and were both incredibly excited to enter into their biggest adventure — becoming husband and wife!
I lived vicariously through their picture-perfect honeymoon to Greece! Of all the adventures you will take together I hope this marriage-relationship will be the best of them all! Love you both!
