Every time I photograph a wedding, I am reminded a little more why I do what I do. Vanessa and Tim's wedding was such a sweet reminder of how blessed I am to be able do what I love. This beautiful couple got married on a gorgeous November day at The Pavilion Pepper Plantation right before the most amazing Sunset.
Their portraits under the big oak tree, at sunset, are some of my favorites I've taken. At one point Tim stopped and danced with his bride under the Big Oak and it was pure sweetness. SWOON.
I loved that Vanessa had a hand in every little detail. She made a way for her wedding details to be personal and special to the two of them. She bought a ton of plain glassware, candle holders, birds, etc. and spray painted for weeks. She made her own gold "mercury glass" with a method she discovered on her own, with the help of her sister (and maid of honor ), while Tim watched and laughed often! The couple's dear friend, Ashley Knox, painted the bird painting for their "guest book" frame. It was also important to Tim and Vanessa that their special friends make a speech. They had fun teasing each other for weeks about whose would be better, funnier or make them cry the most! Vanessa shared with me that it was most special to her that Tim's mother and sister got ready and prepped with her and her bridal party, by their Glam Squad, with them that day. Vanessa's Great Uncle Glenn catered their amazing dinner as a gift to them, and their dear friend Melodie created the gorgeous cheese table for cocktail hour. It was so heartwarming to see how surrounded by love and support they were by their great friends and family on their special day.
Here are some of my favorite moments from their perfect wedding day.
