August 12, 2018

I don't even know where to begin with the story of Leathan and Katelyn's wedding day.  Everything was so amazing.  The couple, the venue, the dress...all amazing.

I'll start with the venue.  The private residence "Athena" that they were lucky enough to get married at was breathtaking.  I couldn't believe it when I first drove up.  Giant old magnolia trees, private ponds, grand columns, and that door!  Swoon-worthy.

The first thing that struck me about Leathan and Katelyn was how relaxed they both were.  Leathan was running point on last minute set-up details and Katelyn was enjoying getting ready with her girls.  Couples like this make my job so much easier.  They are best friends just ready to enjoy the day they become husband and wife.  Perfect!

The outside of the house blew me away, and the inside did not disappoint.  The staircase is the stuff wedding photography dreams are made of.  It was the perfect spot for Katelyn and Leathan to share their sweet first look and for me to get some fabulous shots of the couple. 

Some other special moments from the day included a sweet ride for the bride to the ceremony, a fabulous meal courtesy of Bodda Getta Boyz BBQ, and plenty of dancing on the outdoor dance floor.  One guest even wrote and performed a rap just for the couple.  They ended the day with a glow exit.  So much fun!

Leathan and Katelyn, thank you for trusting me with your wedding day memories.  I loved getting to know both of you.
