Polo Golf and Country Club Fall Wedding | Cumming Georgia Wedding Photographers

We’re slowly coming to a close on our look back at our Fall of 2021 weddings. With just a few more fall weddings to look back on we thought today we would head back to the Polo Golf and Country Club located in Cumming, Georgia where Samantha and Frank were married in October. Surrounded by family and friends, Samantha and Frank said I do in a ceremony overlooking the golf courses just before sunset. Following the ceremony we headed outside to capture some sunset portraits on the golf course but not before a fun surprise for the bride! Samantha loves goats, so when her wedding coordinator Madison found out about her love of goats she worked together with Frank to surprise Samantha with a special guest visitor after the ceremony… Madison’s pet goat Glory! After a few fun moments of getting to love on Glory and feed her, we hopped back on the golf carts and headed back to the golf course just in time to catch the most perfect sunset moments. As the sun set on this pretty day Samantha headed inside for a quick change from her gorgeous ballgown to her reception dress, a equally stunning fit and flare white dress with beautiful blue beading. As the newlyweds made their entrance into the reception guests greeted them with cheers and celebrated the new Mr. and Mrs. Darcy with a night of dinner and dancing.

Pleasant Union Farm Fall Wedding | Canton Georgia Wedding Photographers

We’re just a few days away from our first wedding of 2022 at Pleasant Union Farm, but before we head back to the farm, we thought we would take a look back at the last time we were there back in October.

It was an absolutely perfect fall day for John and Sarah’s October 16th wedding at Pleasant Union. The day was filled with sunshine, love, and laughter. So much so, we can still feel the warmth of the sun and feel the joy in the laughter when we look back at their special day! The day started with pretty details that held little subtle hints of John and Sarah’s favorite show Doctor. Who. With first look moments in the garden and vows exchanged under a draped arbor in the garden, Sarah and John said I do surrounded by family and friends. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the porch complete with yard games and photo booth fun. After cocktail hour guests made their way inside the barn for dinner, cake and toasts before heading back outside for a night of dancing under the stars.

Enotah Valley Winter Wedding | Blairsville Georgia Wedding Photographers

Going into our last wedding weekend of 2021 we had all eyes on the weather. The weather forecast for Kali and Tucker’s wedding weekend in Blairsville, Georgia was all things gloomy but we hoped and prayed that a little sunshine would come Kali and Tucker’s way. While the weather didn’t cut us any breaks that weekend, it did remind us once again that rainy days bring a romance all their own. Our day started at Enotah Valley with cloudy skies, that quickly turned into dark skies and tornado warnings. Rain poured down, thunder boomed, lightning flashed and the power even briefly flickered off as we worked to capture getting ready moments and wedding day details. As the lights came back on, the thunder and lightning subsided outside and nervous laughter filled the bridal suite once again. Catching a slight break in the rain we made our way down to the lodge for first look moments, under the covered patio before joining the bridal party inside the lodge. Coming in from the rain, the lodge gave us all the warm and cozy feels, with the candles filling the fireplace and the ambiance of twinkle lights… perfect for this stormy winter day! The fireplace also made for the perfect backdrop for Kali and Tucker as they said their vows surrounded by friends and family. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed dinner, cake, and dancing with the rain stopping just in time for a sparkler send-off!

Toccoa Georgia Fall Wedding | Toccoa Georgia Wedding Photographers

We’ve been looking back at our November 2021 weddings and we’ve got one last beautiful North Georgia November day to share with you!

Christy and Daniel were married under the warm November sun, on top of the hill at Geary Farm in Toccoa, Georgia. Surrounded by friends and family they said I do under a greenery-filled arbor where we had joined them just hours before for first look moments and personal vows. We couldn’t hold back the tears during their precious first look moments or when they made sweet promises to each other. After the ceremony, we soaked in all of the setting sun that we could before joining everyone at the barn for BBQ and dancing! As the night ended and guests lined up for a sparkler send-off, Christy and Daniel enjoyed one last dance before heading out in an antique car.

Getting to know Christy and Daniel in the months prior to their wedding, we knew their day would be a special one. We have cried tears and laughed many laughs with these two and to celebrate with them was an honor!

Fall Wedding at Autumn Oaks of Winder | Winder Georgia Wedding Photographers

November 2021 was a dream for us here at Capture Thirteen! We had a month full of picture-perfect wedding weekends in North Georgia and a weekend calendar full of the sweetest couples to spend them with! The month of November started for us at Autumn Oaks of Winder, in Winder, Georgia with Kendyl and Chandler and we couldn’t have asked for a better couple, bridal party, or family to kick things off with!

Our day started with all the dreamy light we could wish for in the bridal suite, for getting ready fun, moments with mom, and first look moments with Kendyl and her bridesmaids. The sunshine poured down on this day as we spent our afternoon on the front lawn for first look moments with dad, bridal party fun, and the sweetest ceremony moments. Then after the ceremony, we slipped off to a clearing in the field near the barn for some final bride and groom moments before heading into the barn for burgers from the Dawsonville Pool Room and dancing!

We’ve had the best time getting to know Kendyl and Chandler and we knew celebrating with them would be a joy and it was, in fact, the day overflowed with so much joy, that you could feel it in the air! There is so much we could say about this sweet day but we think the pictures speak for themselves and we’re pretty sure you too will feel their happiness and joy as you scroll through. Enjoy!

Flowery Branch Fall Wedding | Flowery Branch Georgia Wedding Photographers

We don’t split up the team around here often but this November wedding was a special one and for this wedding, Brandy needed to just be mom! That’s right… Mom, mother of the groom to be exact!

To be chosen by any of our CTP couples is always an honor, but that honor was even sweeter coming from Tyler and Jenna. You see I met Brandy, Brad and Tyler long before Brandy and I started photographing weddings together… I met them back in the day when Brad, Brandy and I all worked for our local YMCA. When we met Tyler was just 3 years old, and if you had told me back then, that in the future I would be photographing that cute little 3 year old boy’s wedding, I would have thought you were crazy! But here we are! Our Y days are long behind us… and somehow Tyler grew up all without me aging one bit. 😂 There’s so much I could tell you and say in this blog post, you see the Williamson’s, Jenna included are friends I love like family but I think you should hear Tyler and Jenna’s story from Tyler, so I’ll let him take it from here!

Love at first sight! Well, not really… It took Jenna about 17 years before she knew she loved me. As for me, I knew she was the one at a very young age. Our paths first collided at Oakwood Baptist Church when I was 3 and she was 4. I was a shy kid growing up, while Jenna had a huge personality with a whole lot of sass. She made me nervous, even at a young age. I don’t know if it was because we had opposing personalities or because… well because I had a crush on her. Ever since I was 8 years old, I knew Jenna was the one for me. At least I hoped she was the one because of the HUGE crush I had on her. But I remember telling my mom at one point I was going to move on from her because there were other guys that were taller, stronger etc. that liked her. I moved on for a whole two months before I started liking her again. But it wasn’t until February 2016 that she realized she may like me back. On May 12th, 2016 we finally told each other those three words, “I like you”. Although we did it rather unconventionally… On May 12th we went to a Sons of Jubal concert. I was planning on telling her that I liked her but I didn’t know if I could because of how nervous I was. Jenna comes to my house and we leave to go to the concert. I was planning on telling her how I felt sometime between getting out of the car and before we sat down in the auditorium seating. But I was too nervous, I couldn’t do it. We ended up sitting down next to each other, not saying a word. But quickly struck up a conversation, not through talking but through texting each other. She texted me asking me who I liked, and my response was as cheesy as it gets, I said “The girl I like is sitting right next to me”. I finally did it, I told the girl that I have liked my whole life how I felt! And to my astonishment, She said I like you too!! The rest is history! 5 years later on July 6th, 2021, I asked the girl I have liked, and eventually loved my whole life to marry me. My Love, My life, My happily ever after. This is our story and we cannot wait to grow and continue to write our story -Tyler

Thank you Jenna and Tyler for allowing me to capture your special day! To serve you was an honor but to call you friends is one of life’s sweet blessings! Also a huge THANK YOU 🤗 to our fellow photog friend Sylvia of Sylvia Marie Photography for jumping in and assisting me with ALL the things, so that Brandy could just be mom for the day! ❤️-Alison

Juliette’s Chapel Summer Wedding | Dahlonega, Georgia Wedding Photographers

Jamie and Ryan were married at Juliette’s Chapel in Dahlonega, Georgia on a beautiful warm Sunday morning in August. The morning light streamed through the chapel windows as they said I do with close friends, family and even their pup Harley by their sides! Following the ceremony, guests made their way over to the lawn for brunch where they enjoyed chicken and waffles and shrimp and grits, all while drinks were served from the cutest beverage truck… Tippy Tap! After brunch everyone headed inside for a fun afternoon filled with toasts, cake and dancing! As the day came to a close their guests each wrote a note to the bride and groom on a paper airplane and then they let love fly as they sent the new Mr. and Mrs. on their way to happily ever after!

Tyson and Nicole | Cornelia, Georgia Wedding Photographers

It’s hard to believe that summer is already coming to an end… even though the season doesn’t officially end here until mid-September all the things that tell us summer is over have come. School has started back, football season is kicking off and Halloween has hit the store shelves! 😂 But before summer slipped away from us, we started the summer wedding season off with Tyson and Nicole at their June wedding at the Cornelia Community House, located in Cornelia, Georgia.

Tyson and Nicole long distanced dated for a few years while Nicole was working on her doctorate degree in North Carolina, during this time Tyson and Nicole regularly wrote each other letters. So it was only fitting that during first look moments on their wedding day that they exchanged letters one last time before saying I do! Saying I do inside the Cornelia Community House in front of the large stone fireplace they were joined by bridesmaids in pops of blue and groomsmen in light grey, perfect for this warm summer day! Following a sweet ceremony time they headed downstairs to celebrate their special day over cake with family and friends before being sent off to the sounds of cheers and ringing bells! 

Congratulations Tyson and Nicole!
