When Jackie contacted me I knew right away that this was a wedding that I HAD to shoot. She was so excited about all of the details of her day but she told me that Michael was playing a big role in planning the wedding as well and it was important that he talk with me too. As silly as it sounds, I really loved this. The wedding industry targets brides much more than grooms, in my opinion, and sometimes the grooms get left out. Your wedding day is amazing because its about coming together in a life long partnership…sharing life together…both splitting the marriage evenly and working together as a team. I absolutely adored that Michael was willing (and SO ecstatic about) playing a 50/50-hands on role in planning their big day!
When we arrived, Jackie was in the middle of hair and make up and Michael was hanging out with his fellas in a beautiful suite at Hotel Indigo Athens. We talked and laughed and I felt like I really had the chance to soak in their day with them. I cried at their first look with them (yea….nothing surprising there, I know.) and cheered for them as they ran down the isle after saying their, “I Do’s.” This couple is something really special and I can’t say enough about how great it was to work with them. Here are a few of my favorites from their day!
I can’t even handle how gorgeous this girl is…
Michael wanted to pause for a selfie…with ME. Yes please! #bestgroomever
