I had the pleasure of photographing a Little Gardens wedding a few weeks ago. It was a beautiful day in Lawrenceville, GA. I absolutely love gardens so I was excited to return to photograph this wedding. I always take a few extra photos of the landscape to use as inspiration in my garden.
The bride and groom had a First Look to make sure they had enough time for romantic portraits. Their evening ceremony wouldn’t allow enough time for family and bridal party portraits and have a good variety of couple portraits. The tall hedges hide what seems to be a secret garden on the right of the front porch. This was the perfect spot for the groom to await his bride. With two photographers, we were able to capture the joy & excitement on both the bride and groom’s face as they saw each other for the first time. This is such a sweet and intimate moment that can’t be captured during the ceremony.
The bride wore a gorgeous tea length wedding dress. I loved the illusion neck with embroidered bodice. The A line and tulle skirt is great for twirling.
With as many weddings as I photograph, it’s always great to see unique details that reflect the bride and groom’s style. The Lego grooms cake was awesome. I love the intricate little details on the blocks and the tiny people on the cake. This was my first time photographing a glow stick exit. I think this is a fun and less scary alternative to sparklers. I’m so honored they allowed me to share in their special day.
As the napkins say, this was their “best day ever!” Congratulations to the couple and here’s to many more. And now here’s a few of my favorite wedding photos from the day.
