We met this sweet couple at Sheena’s brother wedding last December in Plano Texas. Their family is so fun and we were overjoyed when we received a request for us to come to Atlanta to capture their big day! We love to travel and we love Atlanta so it was a no brainier for us!
They have a huge family and their traditional Christian ceremonies are full of worship, traditions, and love. Seeing all of their amazing colors is so much fun to capture!
The day started with the three of us desperately trying to fly out of Dallas! This weekend was the beginning of crazy rain that has been in the area for weeks. We were delayed several times and ended up not arriving into Atlanta until close to 3 in the morning! By the time we got to the hotel, we had time to catch an hour of sleep before getting up again to start the wedding day. We rallied and pushed through, found our second wind and rocked this wedding!
The bride got ready at her gorgeous home in Lilburn, GA and by 8:00, they were ready to head to the church! We took a fun limousine ride with all of the girls and arrived for pictures. It was a beautiful day and the church was huge, open and bright. Prefect day for a wedding! The couple wanted to do a first look and see each other so they could read letters and have a moment to themselves before the busy day began. Their traditional ceremony, which includes a sermon is over an hour long. But really, it’s a time for two families to become one and to praise God for new beginnings, new life, and new memories being made. It’s such an amazing moment to capture!
After all of the family pictures, we moved to the lunch reception at Ashton Gardens in Sugar Hill, GA. The wedding party performs a ring ceremony, just them and the couple. It’s an intimate moment where the couple can finally exchange rings and have their first kiss. It’s special to them and this chapel was the perfect spot for it! We were able to capture some portraits and then it was time to be introduced! So many friends spoke about this awesome couple and you could feel the love in the room!
Thanks again for flying us out and having Silver Bear Creative capture your best day ever you two!
