It is the absolute greatest compliment I could ever receive when past clients of mine recommend me to their family + friends. I’ve been so lucky over the past few years! I had the honor of photographing David’s cousin Chase’s wedding two years ago in Charleston, so it was like a family reunion of sorts at Jordan + David’s wedding in Athens, Georgia. There were so many familiar faces and I’m honestly still on cloud nine after this incredible destination wedding! Traveling to new places is such a thrill for me, so I’m always thankful when clients are willing to bring me in to a new city.
Jordan + David met at the University of Georgia, so it only made sense that they would return “home” to get married. Although they live in Texas currently, it was clear to me just how much Athens means to them as a couple. Jordan + David wanted to make sure that we got photos on the UGA campus, so we started their day with a sweet First Look in front of the chapel on North Campus – followed by portraits around the quad. These are seriously some of my FAVORITE portraits ever!! Jordan’s classic ballgown was so simple, but completely breathtaking. One of my all-time favorite dresses FOR SURE!!
After portraits, we met up with their bridal party at the church for group photos and, before long, Jordan + David were saying “I do!” in front of their family + friends. Their reception was held at this really fun venue called The Foundry, which is actually a live music venue. The ballrooms looked amazing thanks to gorgeous florals by Amy Osaba and their band was incredible. The dance floor was completely packed all night long!! At the end of the night, Jordan + David exited through a tunnel of guests as they tossed rose petals in celebration of the newlyweds. I had the most amazing time at this wedding and I’m just so thankful for the opportunity to travel + photograph such amazing couples!! Congratulations, you guys! Here are some of my favorites from Jordan + David’s romantic downtown Athens, Georgia wedding…
