I have a particular LOVE for people who are genuine and incorporate their genuine interests into their wedding day. I love when people show who they are and what they love because it feels right, not just trying to keep up with the latest trends. So when I realized how much Lindsey and Tony loved baseball (more specifically, the Atlanta Braves) and found ways to bring in Braves details to their wedding I knew I had found some genuine and fun people. And I was so impressed by all the little ways the Braves theme ran throughout the day! From the ring bearer baseball bowties to the Braves Jersey that guests signed, it was full of navy and red to make Bobby Cox proud.
These two are fun people. I realized how much so when I started taking their pictures and saw how many different facial expressions Lindsey could give the camera and how Tony was up for anything. And these two are people who love God and people- it was so clear to tell from their ceremony and reception. It was really neat to see them pray together after seeing each other for the first time. My awesome second shooter Steven and I left them alone for a few minutes but of course got a quick shot of them from the back of the chapel. We are photo snipers.
A family friend of Tony's owns this 1969 VW bug that they used to drive to the reception and take off for their honeymoon in. I couldn't have been more excited to see this getaway car... this is the kind of car I would pick to drive off in! Or to just drive in general. The bug was complete with luggage racks and old luggage, the only thing missing was a surfboard:) If anyone is looking for a car to rent for their wedding and likes this, let me know and I can get you in touch with them!
Tony and Lindsey's reception was at Reid Barn in Cumming, and there couldn't have been a greener or more beautiful place for it. Outside was decorated with lights and Braves corn hole for guests to play, and the food was a perfect southern meal of BBQ and sweet potato casserole and everything else that makes a guest excited for the reception. Friends of the family help decorate the tables with old baseball trophies, vintage baseballs, tickets and candles and pictures of Lindsey and Tony playing on little league teams were attached to an old metal gate. This was done so so well- I loved that they really made it their own!
One last thought- Lindsey's grandmother had to be the one of the best grandmothers I've encountered at a wedding. She had the moves to every song, including rap songs, and would give me the best facial expressions for pictures (clearly this runs in the family!). I had to include one shot of her because her dancing made my day.
THANKS a million for including me in your big day-I felt honored to capture it!
