Jasmine & Jonathan // Sonnet House Wedding

Jasmine and Jonathan were married at the Sonnet House on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. 

We loved ...

… Jasmine's time with her bridesmaids. Jasmine and her bridesmaids had so much fun hanging out and reminiscing as they got ready. With a great soundtrack playing and mimosas, it was the perfect time to relax and take the whole day in. It's important to surround yourself with your closest friends. And, don't miss the opportunity for a group toast! 

… Their first dance. Jasmine and Jonathan smiled their entire first dance! Of course, they were smiling and enjoying every moment the entire day! 

… Going to the hotel after the wedding. Jasmine and Jonathan stayed at The Tutwiler after their wedding. We followed them back there and grabbed some footage of them with their getaway car and in front of the hotel. We also got some fun shots of them jumping on the bed that was in their feature film. 

Congratulations Jasmine and Jonathan!

Ginny Rae & Brad | Georgia Wedding Video

As we pulled up to Ginny Rae and Brad's wedding ceremony site, I {Ashley} instantly got excited. It was over the top gorgeous! We walked down to the reception site and our excitement grew. We could not wait to start filming! Matt headed to hang out with the guys as they got ready at a cabin down the road and I headed to hang out with Ginny Rae. She was so excited about her wedding day and it was contagious!

We loved ...

... the words the pastor spoke! The film opens with the pastor speaking some of the most beautiful words I've heard. His wisdom is a challenge and a reminder.

... the sand! Because sand is such integral part of Ginny Rae's family, they integrated it throughout the wedding. You'll notice the sand holding the sign, sand in vases and sand bag seating at the Cigar Bar. We even grabbed a few shots at the sand mine.

... the first dance! Ginny Rae and Brad's first dance song began sweet and romantic then quickly changed into Baby Got Back. They Baby Got Back dance was hilarious and so fun! They let their personalities shine through. {I have a secret obsession with Baby Got Back, so I was flipping out!}

... the styling! There is no way I could blog this wedding and not mention the amazing styling by Molly at Chancey Charm. Every thing was beautifully designed and let Ginny Rae and Brad's personality shine through every detail. It was a gorgeous wedding!! And everything went perfectly!

Thank you Ginny Rae and Brad for letting us be a part of your amazing and gorgeous wedding! Congratulations!!

Lauren + James // Atlanta Wedding Video

Here's a little secret ... any couple who introduces us to super tasty restaurants will always hold a special place in our hearts. When we were making plans to meet up with Lauren and James, she immediately emailed back that she "had a great place in mind." A couple of weeks later, we were meeting them at Ria's Bluebird in east Atlanta. By the end of breakfast, we had barely discussed their wedding and Matt and I wished we had not split a plate. (Amazing food!!)

Now, on to the wedding day.  We loved ...

... the way James looked at Lauren! I heard James throughout the day talk about how beautiful Lauren was. He was completely smitten with his beautiful bride.

... that they were just themselves! One of my favorite moments was right before they were introduced. Lauren and James broke out into a "rock pose" then walked on the dance floor and ballroom danced. They were just fun!

... their surprise "Just Married" sign! Lauren and James have a Boston Terrier named Benson. So, their wedding party had a custom made "Just Married" sign with a Boston Terrier bride and groom. Besides being SO cute, it was very sweet and thoughtful.

Congratulations Lauren and James!

Mary + Adam

Mary and Adam met in a history class at Auburn University. Since they were both athletes, he was a swimmer and she was on the equestrian team, they also had required tutoring together. They quickly hit it off.

Adam proposed to Mary while they were in England (his home country) where he was swimming in the Olympic trials. After a romantic evening at the theatre and dinner, they went to Primose Hill overlooking London. There he asked Mary to be his forever. (Could it be anymore romantic?!?)

Whether it's their annual Christmas trips, traveling to London to see Adam swim in the Olympics, or curling up at home with dinner and a movie, Mary and Adam are always having an adventure.

We loved ....

... Mary's horse arena. Mary and Adam were married in the horse arena where Mary had spent many hours. It's so beautiful when the location has special meaning to the family! Turning the arena and barn from a working horse barn to a wedding venue, created many of the memories of the wedding. Their family and friends, from all over the world, came together to get the property ready.

... Their family and friends! Mary grew up in Alabama, went to Auburn and competed with equestrian teams. Adam was born in England, went to school in Australia, went to college at Auburn and competed in the Olympics. The result was a wonderful combination of people from all over the world. Everyone melted together and the day was full celebration and laughter!

... Their first sight. When Adam turned around and saw Mary, he became so emotional. That moment when Mary is holding Adam, and they are taking it all in, is beautiful!

Congratulations Mary and Adam!! We were lucky to be a part of your perfect day!!
