Saturday March 30 was a gorgeous spring day out at the Buford Community Center where Adam and Sarah were tying the knot! When I got to know them at their engagement session, I learned that like me, Sarah was from Georgia, and Adam, like my husband, was from Alabama. My husband once told me when you were born in Alabama you had to pick a side—and both he and Adam are Alabama grads. I gave Adam a hard time about that, because this Georgia alumnae gets enough grief from my husband and his family (especially these last few years since Kirby came aboard) ;-)
Sarah’s colors and details were beautiful—her sweet sparkly shoes had bows on the back, and her something old was the beautiful pair of diamond earrings that belonged to her grandmother. Adam and Sarah’s sweet miniature schnauzer, Addie, made a quick appearance for some photos and even she coordinated with their wedding colors!
When we went out for her bridal portraits, the wind was picking up—but I didn’t mind because we got some gorgeous shots of Sarah’s lace trimmed gown blowing in the breeze!
When it was time for their first look, and Adam turned to see his beautiful bride walking toward him, his face literally lit up. He dried the tears from Sarah’s eyes, and after a few sweet moments, they were ready to grab a few portraits with Addie!
I loved how Sarah and Adam incorporated their families into their day! They had their seven nieces and nephews in the bridal party, and the kids did really well—about 30 minutes before the ceremony when they were in the hallway waiting, they were entertained with a an episode of “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood”.
After a God-centered ceremony where Adam and Sarah shared communion, they were pronounced “man and wife” and we braved the wind for some combined family photos outside followed by some “just married” photos.
Another neat story was Sarah’s Uncle—he brought his vintage blue car out for their exit, and surprised them with flags that said “just married” and a hand made sign when they ran through the sparklers.
Sarah and Adam’s day was sweet, beautiful, and filled with joy. One thing I have really noticed about these two in photographing them is that they are truly filled with JOY when they are around one another. Sarah and Adam, I hope you always keep that joy as you begin this next chapter in your lives! Thank you for allowing me to capture this sweet day for you! May God bless you, your marriage, and your family!
