A Beautiful Wedding down to the last detail.

I have to say that this wedding was so put together, every detail had a special touch. When I arrived for "getting ready" pictures, I was surprised to see that all of the bridesmaids had matching lounge wear with hot pink banners. The bride was in white, of course, but I was amazed at how great everyone looked and they weren't even dressed for the wedding yet.

Everyone was so sweet. This is the bride with her mom, sister and neice. Brittan, the darling baby girl, has her own blog. ( That puts pressure on me since I can barely keep up with this one! ) ha ha.
I love this photo. It's such a sweet moment. I opened the door to a smaller sancuary and put them right inside. The light was perfect as the room behind them was dark.

Savannah was the sweetest flower girl. ( aren't they all? ) She loved the pink ribbon from her haiku. ( that's the hawaiian word for the flower halo )

Can I just tell you that I have been waiting for 2 1/2 years to shoot at Eagles Landing Country Club? You know why? Because it is 5 minutes away from my house. Yep. For the first time ever, I shot a wedding in Georgia and made it home before I had time to listen to my phone messages. That's amazing!

This is an ice bar inside the ballroom that was monogrammed as were the very fragrant candles that guests were able to take home. Cecilia picked a print pattern that was used throughout the whole process. It was on the invitations, menu's programs, candles....so cool.

Instead of bubbles, or rose petals, the bride choose lavender for their exit. It smelled so good outside after they sped away, I think the limo was covered on the inside as well. It's a good thing that the seeds are light and airy...someone had great aim here.

Thank you Matt and Cecilia. I had such a great time.

Such beauty, such love - surrounding such a glorious occasion! We loved being a part of it. Kudos to Shawna for capturing every minute perfectly.

New chapters, renewals, and reminders of love shared on many levels--these just touch on the reasons weddings are so important. To be able to have photos that captured and preserve with such artistry the essence of this dazzling day is such a gift. Thank you!

I wrote a comment yesterday after Pam and Stewart's and for some reason it didn't show up. I just checked it and now Mama has written something. Great...no one can ever top what she writes. Oh well. I will say what an amazing day! I was so honored to be a part of it. Being Cecilia's sister has always been an honor, so to be able to stand beside her on this day was wonderful. Thank you, Shawna, for providing photos that help bring us back to the occasion. We will be able to look at them years down the road and they will bring back such fond memories.

In one word . . . WOW!!! (But I can never just say one word. . .) Shawna, you truly captured the atmosphere of our wedding day. . .every smile, laugh, tear, hug. . .you were right there to grab hold of every moment so that we could have it in a photograph to remember for a lifetime. I truly do feel that you were a gift from God to Matthew and me. . .we feel so blessed to have found you and to have you photograph our wedding. What a perfect fit. And the fact that you lived in Eagles Landing was pure coincidence. How ironic is that?! It's got to be fate :-) Thank you again and again and again for your passion and committment to your "job" and for the love and flexibility you have shown to us. Besides your amazing photography talent, you are so accommodating and easy-going and that is a HUGE asset (especially when you're dealing with a BRIDE!) I look forward to working with you again to capture the joy of more special occasions in the future.

The wedding was so amazing and beautiful and the pictures capture everything so well. I wish I could go back and time and do it all over again! I wish I could fly you to Boston and have you photograph my wedding. Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful!

There is something about looking at your son on his wedding day and getting that special feeling about him and his wonderful choice in a woman. Your photographs have captured their joy and we are the lucky ones to have been witness. Thanks for creating such a lasting and beautiful memory for all of us.
