You may remember Zach and Emily from their engagement session! Well… I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding day on June 21, 2014! They were married in Dalton, GA at Mason Farm at River’s Edge, Northwest Georgia’s premier event and wedding venue. It was a GORGEOUS and FUUUUN wedding, as you are about to see in photos! Surely one for the history books of my business. 🙂 They didn’t let a little rain ruin their wedding day; they made the most of it!!! So, sit back and enjoy Zach and Emily’s wedding day! Emily’s dress was sooo beautiful!
I. AM. SO. IN. LOVE with these colors! And the florals for the entire wedding were spectacular! These gals were so much fun! Zach and Emily opted to do a “first glance” and I’m SO glad they did! Not only for such sweet pictures of their intimate moment together, but we were also able to knock out all of the wedding formal photos before the rain storm!!! I love that her dad helped her with her dress across the rocks; ugh, SO sweet!!! Zach and Emily, you guys are the cutest!!! So before we start with the next series of photos, this is when the craziness began! The ceremony was scheduled to begin at 5pm. Well at 4:58pm the bottom fell out and the RAINS CAME DOWN on this wedding day and outdoor wedding ceremony, mind you. Now… the guest seating area was half covered with an awning and the other half was exposed, so thankfully the guests were out of the rain! And while everyone entered freak out mode, Emily was cool as a cucumber and decided after checking the radar that they would wait it out a bit and proceed with their outdoor ceremony when a break in the rain came! (I think she just secretly wanted SO badly to walk through the fabulous barn doors of this venue!) So we waited about 30 minutes and we got that break in the rain!!! And from then everyone was in RUSH mode! lol Guests rushed out and helped dry off the chairs where the family was to be seated; and then the wedding processional began… to the PERFECT song too! “Here comes the sun! do, do, do, do!” The wedding party was all but RUNNING down the aisle. WHEW! lol And Emily’s father gave her away… and well… you can see from the pictures how the rest of the story goes! HA Bless their hearts… it started raining AGAIN! So we picked up the ceremony and moved it all indoors. (It’s moments like this that I’m so thankful to have a second photographer on board with me at weddings! (because I had to be set up outside the doors ready for the front view!) Emily had this shot in mind and it tuned out to be SO SWEET!!! Have I mentioned how GORGEOUS this venue is?! Zach and Emily enjoyed a honeymoon at Disney World, and Zach wanted a cookie instead of cake for his “grooms cake” so voilà~ a Disney Great American Cookie Company groom’s cookie! Thank you both, Zach and Emily, for entrusting your wedding day photography to me! It was such a pleasure to be a huge part of preserving such sweet memories for you!!!
