sarah + i spent a few of the best years of our childhood living next door to each other. our backyards connected, so we spent the summers rolling down the hill from my yard into hers, making up plays, and going to swim team. she moved to florida, while i stayed in colorado, but our families stayed in touch, and i was so thrilled to hear the good news about her engagement. and i was even more excited to get an e-mail from her, telling us about her destination wedding in the mountains of georgia and asking us to come along!
sarah + james chose to wed in the sweetest little town north of atlanta, and they were married in the most idyllic little white chapel. it felt so southern and so perfect. their reception was held at wolf mountain vineyards, just a few miles away, and oh my goodness was it beautiful! as d.c. wedding photographers + videographers, we often get to capture gorgeous vineyard weddings in the DMV, but i never would’ve guessed that their could be such a beautiful vineyard nestled into the georgia mountains. their union was celebrated by a lovely religious ceremony, followed by lots of delicious southern food and dancing on the porch to a live band! hearing a crowd of southerners sing “sweet home alabama” (and add in a little “roll tide, roll!”) was so different from what we’re used to and just so much fun!
these two are such a sweet and happy pair. their smiles (and dimples!) are infectious, and their respect for one another is so apparent. i may or may not have teared up a few times when they were reading their wedding day letters from one another. their wedding was the epitome of a soft, romantic southern affair, and we feel so blessed to have been there!
congratulations, s+j! thanks for having us along for the start of your new adventure!!
