The weather wasn’t the only thing beautiful about this day. Nancy and John planned an event full of relaxed, simple elegance. The morning began at Glenn Memorial Church on the Emory campus. A completely majestic place, inside and out. When we arrived, Nancy was was assembling flowers and sharing laughs with her ladies. When the guys showed up on the other side of the church, there was no shortage of joking around between them. There’s something so cool about the ritual of getting ready for a milestone in your life while being surrounded by your friends. As the ceremony time approached, the anticipation grew, but the mood remained light and excited. Joy really is wonderfully infectious.
I had the pleasure of having my friend Robin Nathan second shoot for me on this day. We’ve worked together before, and at Nancy and John’s wedding, she commented on how cool all my clients are. I have to whole-heartedly agree. Robin took this fantastic shot of the church. It’s so nice working with someone who is not only talented, but also understands the important balance of being professional and having a blast. Yay, Robin!
Nancy couldn’t have looked more exquisite.
It would be an utter crime to pass up a shot with a cool mirror AND a gorgeous bride.
I love images of the groom waiting before the ceremony. There’s just something about capturing that emotion. This one of John may be my all-time favorite.
Here’s Nancy waiting around the corner just before walking down the aisle. I love her playful look!
These ladies know what’s up. Fierce posing….check.
I adore this next shot because it’s such a naturally romantic pic. I told John to get close to Nancy, like he was trying to gently kiss her neck. Apparently, John lives by the philosophy of “Try not. Do…or do not. There is no try.” I hope he appreciates that Empire Strikes back quote. I mean, he did have a Darth Vader groom’s cake. Holla!
It’s shout-out time! Oh Wahoo Grill, you are the bees knees. Other folks who are the knees of bees are Sloane Warren, who did makeup for Nancy and all her gals; Southern Sweets Bakery, who made the yummy wedding cake; and Highland Bakery, who created the “sci-fibulous” groom’s cake! Yes, I just made that a word.
Thanks for everything John and Nancy! What an incredible start to your new life as hubby and wife!
