I so enjoyed photographing M&L’s rehearsal dinner at the beautiful Roswell Mill Club, in Roswell, Georgia. This facility is adjacent to Ivy Hall, both of which have been restored from a Civil War era cotton mill. Overlooking Vickery Creek and a park that includes a picturesque covered bridge (unfortunately not easily accessible in the heels all the ladies were wearing!), this is a part of town that I had not been to in ages and plan to return to with the family on one of our next trips up.
They say you can judge how a man will treat his wife by how he treats his mother. Judging by how sweet this groom is with his mom and grandmother (below), I’d say L is in good hands.
The bride got comfortable so she could go mingle with her friends and family.
The RMC is a beautiful venue both indoors and out, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the elegant room and porch.
There was a nostalgic slideshow at the end of the night with pictures of the couple from childhood up to their courtship. This is the mom and sister of the bride watching and reminiscing from the back of the room.
Thanks and best wishes to the newlyweds. It was a pleasure to spend the evening with your family and be a part of this special night on the cusp between your old life and your new one.

Those are lyrics from T&B’s song, and very appropriate for them indeed. These two have been through incredible challenges to get to their wedding day and they deserved to celebrate and be celebrated. I’m so proud and happy for them. And I was honored to be asked to document their day.
On a personal note, I learned a ton from my first official wedding shoot. First of all, that I LOVE doing it! Secondly, that I have a LONG way to go – but really I will probably always feel that way. I couldn’t just pick a few images to share here, so I put together some collages.
Some of the details that they put much thought and effort into.
For a guy who supposedly doesn’t really dance, B looked great on the dance floor…
Just a few more…

Yes, I did have to look up the spelling of the title…
Anyhow, I ran up the road to Savannah recently to check out the location of a WEDDING I’ll be shooting in a few weeks! So excited about the opportunity, but I know I’ll be sweating buckets when the day comes. I keep telling myself, “It’s family. It’s going to be small and intimate.” And yet, I know it’s a once in a lifetime day for people I love and I just want to do a great job for them.
While I was there, we did a quick engagement shoot. You’ll see more of these pretty faces in a few weeks!
