It is always fun to get out of the city and shoot somewhere different! We loved driving by all the water and beauty of Lake Lanier to shoot Emily and Drew’s Lakeside nuptials at Lake Lanier’s Legacy Pointe. Emily and her girls all got dressed in the quaint little bride’s room near the venue, it was like a mini sorority house! She looked just beautiful! I loved that she carried her late grandmother’s handkerchief and ring. Those are the touches that make a wedding ceremony so sweet and personal.
It was a little challenging finding a spot that was not too windy for pictures, but we did, and it was beautiful with Emily’s gown and veil blowing in the wind. Really a gorgeous spot. After the ceremony (complete with a speedboat zooming by the alter), we took the new Mr. and Mrs. via golfcart to a gorgeous spot where we got phenomenal sunset shots of them. That was truly a highlight!
The party was a ball. American Flyers was the band (our first time with them–they were excellent) and the crowd was ready to celebrate. The night ended with a final dance with bubbles. And, because of the heat, the fans around the dance floor made quite the spectacular bubble display!
Hope Emily and Drew are having a blast in Mexico–and not reading this on their laptop…but just having a phenomenal trip and a wonderful beginning to their marriage! Congrats!
