Parker Wedding... Kinderlou Chapel, Valdosta, Georgia Photographer

August 17, 2015  •  1 Comment

For the second time this wedding season, the weatherman called for 100% chance of rain for a wedding Saturday.  I, of course, was prepared with a change of clothes, two umbrellas, and my rain boots.  And for the second time this wedding season, the weatherman was so so wrong!  Gabi + Cole's wedding day was nothing short of blue skies, fluffy white clouds, stunning floral decor and this amazing, brand-new chapel.  To say that I was a little bit excited about this wedding would be an understatement for a few reasons.  Firstly, ever since their engagement session this past January, I have adored this couple, and have been quite inspired by their quiet love for each other.  They are careful and kind, and sweet... just the type of love I enjoy photographing the most!

The second reason that I was thrilled to shoot this wedding was because of this brand new chapel with a centuries old feel!  This wedding was the first one in this venue, and I couldn't think of a more lovely event to declare it open with.  Between the blue-grass inspired musicians, the gospel message preached, the couple praying together as their first act as husband + wife... and the room being filled to the brim with so many supporters of them and their families.  It was a unique and moving wedding.  And one I am so proud to have been a part of!

Thirdly, is that this wedding was the fourth one in a line of weddings I've shot of friends of theirs, so it really felt like photographing the wedding of great friends.  What a comfortable feeling, knowing that so many of the bridesmaids and groomsmen were previous brides and grooms who trusted me with their wedding.  And what a compliment to have been passed around this circle of friends as a photographer deemed worth of documenting their best days!  I love my 'people'.  And this wedding was full of them!
