Claire and Chris are the sweetest couple! It's written all over their faces. It's obvious that their friends and family love and support them so very much.
Claire and Chris were married at John's Creek Presbyterian Church northeast of Atlanta, Georgia. The bridesmaids were dressed in navy which looked amazing with the orange accents. I am in love with Claire's orange shoes too!!
They chose not to see each other before the wedding. Chris was stunned by Claire's radiant beauty when he saw her walking down the aisle towards him. His brother reached over and gave him a pat on the back, and Chris acknowledged it as if to say, "I'm ready."
The pastor told the story of how Chris and Claire had met at a church retreat while volunteering back in 2009. He said that they continued to nurture the relationship after that summer and it grew into a love that will last them a lifetime.
After the ceremony, everyone traveled down the road to the Payne-Corley House for dancing, food, and time with family and friends. Everyone had a great time watching Chris & Claire glow in their "newly-wedness." They demonstrated a very skilled first dance, and Chris's Mom was sure he had been practicing, but he denied it.
Did we mention that Claire is also a very skilled and talented Letterpress artist? She made many of the decorative items used at their wedding. Check her out here:
We would like to wish Claire & Chris nothing but the best as they start their new life together. We know they are going to have many fun times ahead of them.
We had a blast working with our new colleagues/friends, which always makes an event exponentially more fun and successful. Hopefully we will see you again soon.
