Carolyn + Justin // Winter Wedding // Goodhope, GA

Press Play! This is the song they had their first dance too. <3

On December 22nd 2015, I spent the morning photographing one of my best friend's weddings. I was so surprised when she told me she was engaged! I hadn't even met the guy because he's in the army currently stationed in Germany. I trust her judgement with guys and when I met him the day before the wedding I knew she'd made a good choice! He's such a sweet guy and based on how many times he teared up happy tears during the wedding day I knew that he loved her with his entire heart. 

The day began a little crazy and stressful, with some make up and hair struggles, but ended up beautiful and with everyone feeling such happy feels! 

Right before the ceremony, the two of them had a first look with no looking where they were able to take a second to talk to one another, calm the nerves, and pray for the day (without seeing each other). I took a few shots and gave them their moment to soak up the final moments of their engagement. I later found out that they both cried, which made me CRY. Oh gosh. The ceremony was beautiful where they read their own vows.  SO many sniffles.

They exited their reception in a rain of faux snow in honor of the Christmas season, and headed off to their honey moon in Gatlinburg. 

I love you two, congratulations!!
