Samantha and Stephen got married on May 10th, 2014. And let me tell you, everything about their day was beautiful. Each detail was carefully thought out, and so THEM! The flowers were luscious, and the atmosphere was laid back and whimsical. Even the typical Georgia humid heat held up for them which was so considerate of Mother Nature considering their ceremony was outdoors.

No couple was more deserving of a beautiful wedding than these two lovebirds. John and I met Samantha back in February and were so honored that she chose us to document her wedding. In the months prior to their special day they encountered several very emotional obstacles, including the loss of a family member. They weren’t even married yet, but they tackled each thing that came their way with the unity and optimism of an old married couple. Their love for each other radiates, and I have no doubt that as they journey through life together they will only continue growing closer together.

Thank you guys so much for everything! We couldn’t ask for sweeter, more thoughtful clients and friends!
