Kayla and Buck | Foxhall Wedding Pictures

These two.. what a way to kick off 2016! I've been looking forward to this day since I made that trip to Florida for their engagement session last year during Spring training! (wait- you missed that.. no worries click here- the wedding will wait a few minutes longer). :) Welcome back- so not only did this wedding take place at one of my favorite places in the entire state of Georgia but when I walked into the room and saw the bridesmaids dresses I literally got giddy all over again. I've been waiting (patiently) for the day one of my brides would choose these dresses... they are STUNNING (you just wait). They complimented her gorgeous gown exceptionally well and brought so much pretty into the dead of Winter.

Speaking of Winter- we won the lottery and had a full sky of sunshine, no wind and a beautiful (warm) Saturday to spend outside taking pictures and celebrating these two tying the knot.

Kayla and Buck met in college and hit it off pretty quickly. She's supported and followed him all over the country and cheered for him with the same excitement and love from college to some of the biggest games of his career. He's her calm and steady and loves this woman so. It's clear to see just how much love and admiration he has for her in the way he looks at her when their eyes meet.

I'm blessed that these two came as clients but they've become friends. I look forward to seeing where their lives take them and look forward to hopefully catching a game or two in the upcoming season. :)

A huge thanks to you guys and your families for making me a part of your celebration... I hope you enjoy these memories and they bring you back to this very special day for many years to come. Much love xoxo

Kayla's dad passed 10 years ago but they had his handwriting scripted onto this charm for her bouquet. It was beautiful and so sweet. foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0090

I'd seen this road the morning of the wedding and wanted to use it and then forgot until we drove by again. The light was tricky... but I loved the lines and the sky.

Molly got this while I stayed tight....foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0112 foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0113 foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0114 foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0115 foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0116

A little different but I really loved how the light hit her face ever so perfectly and highlights her beautiful smile. foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0117

We went back to do family pictures and the light.. oh my goodness it was SO beautiful outside! foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0119foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0121foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0123 foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0124

I'll never take these moments for granted.. moments when families and couples are 100% vulnerable and forget. Moments so raw and real and priceless. foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0125 foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0126foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0129foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0132 foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0133

I loved the embrace these two shared after their "smile for the camera picture was over". These are the moments one can't create or re-create if missed. foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0135 foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0136foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0138 foxhall_outdoor_wedding_stables_pictures_tessa_marie_weddings_kayla_buck_bloomin_bouquets_joan_pillow_atlanta_wedding_pictures_0139
