Danielle & John

Saturday we had the pleasure of photographing Danielle and John's gorgeous outdoor wedding! We started the day early at Sassy Scissors Salon where we met Danielle for her hairstyle, then off to Belks to have the makeup artist help Danielle and her mother with makeup that would withstand the 98 degree heat of the day!

Once the preparations were complete, we headed out to the beautiful Zion Farms in Rome, Georgia where the wedding would be held. This is a gorgeous 800 acre equestrian farm where Danielle's dream of riding on horseback to her wedding became reality! Complete with bagpipes, a string quartet, unity candles, and a surprise foot washing by her Groom, the ceremony was just beautiful.

After the ceremony, we headed to The Station House for the reception. Danielle and John made their grand entrance and went straight into their first dance, followed by Dad and Daughter and Mother and Groom dances. The evening progressed with great food, cutting of the beautiful wedding cake, toasts, more dances, and finally Danielle and John running for the car after a quick change to catch a few hours sleep before leaving for their honeymoon destination at 5AM!

Danielle and John, we so enjoyed your day and were pleased that we could be a part of your celebration! Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy a sneak-a-peak of your day! Stay tuned in the coming days for more pictures and your slideshow!

John & Danielle waiting for the ceremony to begin. They both seem to be in thought over what was to come.



Danielle rode into the ceremony on a beautiful horse appropriately named Johnathan, accompanied by her father.





John planned and surprised Danielle with a foot washing ceremony which was very touching and had Danielle on the verge of tears.

















Off to honeymoon in the Bahamas!

    That wedding looks wonderful! I loooove the picture of the three girls in their dresses looking out the window. It was a nice suprise since all you ever seem to see is just the bride in the window. I love it! Wonderful job and thanks for the comment on my blog. :) I guess I can't say that I never win anything anymore. :)

    This is the bride and I love these photos. They are so beautiful and I could not have asked for better photos or photographers. I can't wait to work with them in the future on family shots.

    I did not get to attend the wedding and was glad to see the photos.
    With a beautiful bride like Danielle and a handsome groom like John how could they be anything but great. By the way the father of the bride did not look bad either.
