Bobby + Bess North Georgia Wedding
January 27. 2018.
There’s something so beautiful and serene about the North Georgia mountains… from the blue hills to the tall pines… there’s nothing quite like it. I’ve been wanting to photograph a North Georgia wedding for quite some time, so when Bobby + Bess told me where their wedding would be, I was ecstatic.
As I was driving to the venue, the weather was drizzly and a bit chilly, but it made the scenery that much better. (Yes, I was praying the Lord would hold off the heavy rain until we finished all the photos). The day started with family and friends gathered around Bobby and Bess in their separate cabins as they got ready for one of the most memorable days of their lives. Each word spoken over them was so sweet, profound, and encouraging as they were preparing for the moment they say I do.
At this moment, about mid-day, the sky was overcast with NO RAIN. (Can I get an amen?!) We drove Bess to the top of a hill where Bobby was waiting to see his bride for the first time. Let me just say, this first look gave me chills. It was a moment of pure bliss and profound love.
If you don’t know Bobby + Bess, they are two of the most kind, yet free-spirited humans you will ever meet. This day was all about their love for one another and making it a celebration. So that’s exactly what we did. We celebrated, jumped around, and drank lots of La Croix in the Georgia mountains that day. The blues, greens, maroons, and creams created the perfect color palette for this garden, mountain wedding with Bess’s lace dress fitting in perfectly with the hillside backdrop.
Yeah, it was a dream.
