Last Fall I had the pleasure of photographing Hillary and Brodie’s engagement session with their adorable pup Deacon! Getting to see how much this couple loves their pup, how relaxed and sweet they are as a family was one of the highlights of last year. I will never forget Deacon bounding through the grass…or Hillary and Brodie showering him with all of their attention and affection. 🙂 For almost a year now I have been anticipating their wedding day. And it finally arrived!
The White Memorial Presbyterian Church was absolutely aglow with the love of Hillary and Brodie’s friends and family. This was one of the most stress-free weddings I have ever had the pleasure of attending! Just full of happiness and smiles! And watching the moms of both the bride and groom become emotional, holding back their tears right before walking down the aisle, was so beautiful. The reception was held at the Merrimon-Wynne House, a venue that is both elegant with a Southern charm and full of history! And let me tell you something…Brodie has great dance moves! This groom can cut a rug! It always makes my heart glad to witness that wave of joy come over two people who have just joined their lives. It’s the ‘We Did It!’ moment!
As this magical day was winding down, I found my thoughts turning back to the engagement session once more. And to gratitude. What an honor it is to be a part of these milestone moments in my clients’ lives! I thought of Deacon, on the pretty front porch of his parents’ home, where Brodie proposed to Hillary. And I couldn’t help but smile. I thought to myself: Deacon’s parents are now Husband and Wife! Below is a sneak peek of their wonderful day!
So sweet to see the moms holding back their tears before right before the ceremony started.
