Ashley and Colby | Lake Lanier Wedding

It wasn't just another wedding at Lake Lanier but the ceremony site overlooked the lake AND the island where the bride's grandfather's farm used to be. That was before the state decided to create the dam and what we now know as Lake Lanier. You may remember these two and their engagement session last month in Athens. They met while attending UGA and a few casual dates quickly turned into something special and so much more.

They both come from incredible families. Families filled with love, genuine hospitality and a care and concern for others. My favorite parts of their day were the first look, when Colby opened his surprise gift from Ashley (pictures from her), and then their "fake exit" with the sunset behind them.

Let's also take a moment to talk about the dresses... her gown was 1/1. A sample design she found while shopping that not only fit perfectly but would be the one and only the designer decided to make. It was flawless and oh so gorgeous! Then there were the bridesmaid dresses.. elegant, classic and timeless. They left me swooning over the way they flowed in the breeze!

A huge shout out to Ashley and Colby's wedding party for being so incredible as well! Due to hair and makeup snafus we were way behind schedule... but they were awesome. Exactly where they were asked to be and truly helped bring the spirit of joy and happiness to life in every single photo!

Ashley and Colby- thank you for sharing this special, special day with me. I loved learning more about the history of the property and getting to meet your families. I look forward to hearing what your favorite moments and photos are.
