Courtney and Josh never had any real wedding photos. They tied the knot officially with a romantic elopement. When they returned home, they had a celebration to share their new marriage with friends and family. So when Courtney came to me about doing some portraits of the two of them, we were more than honored! The first time I talked to her, she told me that she wanted some beautiful wedding photos that she would be proud to hang on her walls. She joked that the "third time's a charm," and we hope she's right!

We LOVE Southern Weddings, and we have such a sweet one to share today! There's just something so special about Southern hospitality, the soothing sound of cicadas in the trees, and sweating glasses of iced tea and lemonade. Add into the mix a gorgeous fairytale bride in a lacy ballgown, stunning flowers in dripping cascades, and the most ADORABLE flower dog ever, and we are in photographer heaven!

Instead of flowers, he brought her a gold star. Everyone does flowers. Cody wanted to impress Tiffany, and give her something that would last and that she would remember. And, okay, maybe he was trying to get a laugh out of her too. Cody is a funny guy, laid-back and lighthearted, and girls love a guy who can make them laugh. It worked, as Tiffany has been charmed by him since the beginning!

Molly and Spencer are the epitome of Southern charm and grace, and their wedding day only proved it! Molly could only be described as the quintessential blonde bombshell, with a golden heart to match! You can tell more about a person by their friends, and Molly was surrounded by dozens of ladies who only wanted to make sure that she was taken care of on her special day, and that she wanted for nothing. What they all realized was this day was about love, and that the only thing she wanted was Spencer.

It was no secret that we were really looking forward to Nicole and Trey's wedding. After meeting them for the first time, we knew that we would be fast friends. The engagement session sealed the deal, and later we even helped them decide on their wedding day signature cocktails. Well, at least we helped them drink them! Nicole and Trey love strongly, laugh often, and fully participate in life. It's clients like these that we love to work with - the ones who become lifelong friends.
