Heather + Kelby – Atlanta Wedding Photographer

September 20, 2011

I have to say my first impression of Heather and Kelby was not accurate. They showed up at our first meeting freshly engaged; in jeans and t-shirts, and not an ounce of make-up on Heather’s face, looking like two high school sweethearts. As the months went by and I got to know them better, I realized they may be young, but there’s a richness to their character that makes them different. They are warm and simple, and have this amazingly strong faith that brings them closer together.

Nestled in an idillic setting of sprawling fields and rolling hills, Heather and Kelby’s special day had all the charm of a country wedding. But the beautiful setting was just one of the details that made this wedding so beautiful, the entire day was infused with significant little details, family traditions that made everything that much more special. Throughout the day, you could feel the love and support that Heather and Kelby are surrounded with from their family.

Heather chose these gorgeous cowgirl boots to compliment her country wedding theme:


All the florals were to die for, thanks to Jennifer of Virtu in Senoia, who captured the rustic, country theme of the event in her flawless arrangements.
Heather and Kelby chose to see each other before the wedding, which I love because it gives the couple plenty of time to enjoy their guests without delay after the ceremony.

After a few minutes, we realized she hadn’t shown Kelby her fabulous cowgirl boots. Judging by his reaction, I say he approves :)

Heather’s adorable nephew was the ring bearer.

This stunning cake was also five different flavors. Genious!

The ceremony:

After their exit, we headed to a hilltop where Heather’s aunt had prepared a special spot to celebrate their commitment in privacy. This was Heather’s grandmother’s quilt, and it was a specially touching moment for her.



And we had an unexpected guest make an appearance toward the end :)
