New Year’s Eve Wedding at the Cornelia Community House | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

Well friends with today’s post, we reach the end of our look back at our 2022 weddings and we couldn’t have had a sweeter couple to end the year with than Allison and Ben! Allison and Ben were married on what may have been the rainiest and foggiest New Year’s Eve day ever but they didn’t let that dampen their spirits not even one little bit! Our day started with them at the Cornelia Community House located in Cornelia, Georgia where we took full advantage of the cover the porches provided on this very rainy day. Staying nice and dry under the protection of the porches we had the most precious first look moments with the bride and her father and also with the bride and groom! We even squeezed in some bridal party fun and some sweet family moments under those porches all while the rain poured down around us. While the rain didn’t give us many breaks or even lighten up much in the time leading up to the ceremony it did give us a few very brief moments where it slowed just long enough for us to grab our trusty clear umbrellas and head out! Thankfully the rain did eventually begin to slow as we headed over to White Creek Baptist Church for the ceremony and as Allison and Ben said I do in a church full of family and friends the rain came to a stop, giving us a few rain free moments to soak in before heading into the reception at the Cornelia Community House. Inside the reception, the newlyweds joined their guests for breakfast for dinner and a cereal bar… the best comfort food for this rainy New Year’s Eve day! Then it was time for cake, toasts and dancing away the night before sending the new Mr. and Mrs. off in the most perfect New Year’s way… sparklers!

This rainy day plus Allison and Ben’s trust in us, gave us some of the dreamiest rainy day moments, that we honestly couldn’t love more! Congratulations Allison and Ben and thank you for trusting us with your memories on this very special day! ūüíõ

Winter Wedding at Enotah Valley | Blairsville Georgia Wedding Photographers

It feels serendipitous that we’re writing and looking back on this Enotah Valley wedding from December of 2022, as we’re preparing for our first 2023 wedding back at Enotah Valley this week! We spent a good bit of time in Blairsville, Georgia in 2022 and in December we made one more trip back for Tyler and Cassandra’s wedding day at Enotah Valley. Leading up to their wedding it rained for a solid week but on the day of the wedding, the sun was shining bright, making it the perfect December day! It was a day filled with dusty blues that popped against the woodsy winter landscape of Enotah Valley, and made for a dreamy winter scene. We soaked up every second we could of this gorgeous December day before we headed to the lodge where Cassandra and Tyler said I do surrounded by family and friends who came from near and far to celebrate this special day with them. Following the ceremony guests enjoyed some sweet time together over BBQ and cake, before heading outside for a sparkler send off to send the newlyweds on their way! Congratulations Cassandra and Tyler!

Winter Wedding at Willow Creek Farm | Cleveland Georgia Wedding Photographers

December of 2022 surprised us by being one of our busiest months of the year! Normally the beginning of December marks the slowing down of our wedding season but not this time! We celebrated our Capture Thirteen Couples all the way into the new year this past year, and if we’re being totally honest, it made for a whirlwind of a month, but goodness friends, what a beautifully sweet whirlwind it was!

Our first December wedding was Chris and Vernie’s wedding day at Willow Creek Farm in Cleveland, Georgia and we couldn’t have had a sweeter couple to kick this month off with! The day started off with heavy rain and grey skies but the sun came out just in time for first look moments! From there the sun stayed with us as we made our way to the creek where Chris and Vernie said I do surrounded by family and friends under the most beautiful wooden arbor filled with white and blue flowers. One of our favorite parts of the day came during their ceremony time when they planted a tree together giving it dirt to grow from, from each of their home states. After sweet I do moments everyone headed back to the barn for a fun reception time! At the reception Vernie and Chris shared their love for Mexican food and board games with guests and of course, cake, toasts, dancing and some photo booth fun to complete the night! Congratulations Vernie and Chris!

November Wedding at the Meadows at Mossy Creek | Cleveland Georgia Wedding Photographers

Madison and Justin might just be two of the biggest UGA fans we’ve ever met! They share a love for all things Georgia football and this big love for the dawgs, is what led them to each other, so it was only appropriate that, that UGA love was woven into their special day! With Justin in a red suit jacket and Madison wearing her mother’s wedding dress they said I do surrounded by family and friends in Cleveland, Georgia at the Meadows at Mossy Creek. The red and black details of this day popped against the grey cloudy skies and gusty winds and while it felt and looked like it could snow at any minute, Madison looked warm and cozy snuggled up to Justin in her fur jacket! These two absolutely made this day look like a winter wonderland! Inside the reception everyone warmed up with a yummy dinner from Clyde’s Tavern and enjoyed watching the dawgs take another win! Then it was time for cake, toasts and dancing to celebrate before sending the newlyweds off under a sea of red and black pom poms.

Congratulations Madison and Justin and…. GOOO DAWGS!! ‚̧ԳŹūüĖ§‚̧ԳŹ

November Tanglewood Cabin Wedding | Sautee Nacoochee Wedding Photographers

Jenni and Thomas were married at the beginning of November at Tanglewood Cabin located in Sautee Nacoochee, Georgia. Their wedding had one of the most dramatic weather changes we’ve ever experience on a wedding day but these two were troopers! From drizzly rain off and on all day long to a 20+ degree temperature drop in a matter of less than 10 minutes and cold gusty winds they made the best of it. However with a grey, rainy fall day there is often a pretty sweet trade off and that is the fall colors will stand out… and Jenni’s fall color palette absolutely popped on this day! We loved her woodsy boho inspired theme and her use of the color orange mixed with cream tones and browns made everything come to life on this grey day. We also love how she styled her bridesmaids in a mix matched dresses that were also a mix of neutrals and fall colors making them stand out against the fall setting of the day. All of this paired beautifully with warm golden hues of the leaves that adorned the trees surrounding the ceremony and reception sites and made for a perfect setting for Thomas and Jenni’s vows! The colors of this day made everything look a little warmer and a little brighter! So much so, you would never know we were all beautifully frozen!

Congratulations Jenni and Thomas!

Walters Barn Wedding | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

Makena and Addison were married on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon in October at the Walters Barn located in Lula, Georgia. Our day started at the bridal suite for getting ready moments and a fun first look with Makena and her bridesmaids. From there we headed to the barn for a first look with dad and portraits. Then it was time for one more first look, but this time with Makena and Addison! The sun shined oh so bright on this sweet day making the fall tree reflections pop across the pond and creating the most beautiful background for Addison and Makena’s ceremony. Their ceremony time held some of favorite moments from their day as it started with a sweet time of praise and worship, a time of prayer over them by their bridal party and personal vows. Following the ceremony it was time to head inside the barn for a delicious meal, the yummiest cookies and cream cake, and dance moments! And as the night came to a close guests lined up outside the barn and the confetti flew as the new Mr. and Mrs. were sent on their way!

Congratulations Makena and Addison!
