A few weeks ago we received a message from Jena's mom looking for wedding photography for her daughter's upcoming wedding. When we met with Jena and her mom, we knew we were in for a treat with a beautiful outdoor September wedding ceremony with a family and friends that sounded like they were going to have a lot of fun. And this definitely turned out to be the case!

The wedding was being held in a rustic outdoor setting at the Hightower Falls Events Facility nestled in the hills in the Cedartown area. This turned out to be a great place that definitely matched the beauty and bubbling personalities of this beautiful bride and her handsom groom.


We started out the wedding day with an early appointment at J. Tanner Salon & Spa in Cartersville with Jena, her mom, and the girls.

Once we were done at the salon, we all headed towards Hightower Falls for final preparations before the ceremony. The facility contains the ruins of a 200 year old grist mill and the beautiful cascading falls coming down the side of the mountain.

Once we arrived at the facility, Jena and the girls took over the cottage for final preparations while DJ and the guys were hidden away on the other side of the property in the rustic cabins. Jena's dress was beautiful and was perfect for this gorgeous bride!

While getting ready, Jena & DJ's little daughter entertained us as she found lots of things to play with...

Mom had to sneak in a kiss before getting her makeup done

Once dressed, she needed to get some shoes to go with the pretty dress, I'm not sure which of the ladies they really belonged to

As the ceremony drew close, Jena donned her beautiful dress and prepared to meet DJ for their vows by the waterfall.

Just before the ceremony began, daddy was spotted....

Jena & DJ said their vows outside next to a waterfall, it was a beautiful spot for the ceremony.

The bridesmaids had red dresses and their flowers really were a beautiful collection of reds, orange, yellow and greens.

I love this 'exit' shot from the ceremony, they could not stop smiling!

During the formals, we had a small helper with her camera, I wonder how these turned out?

After the pictures, it was time to head to the reception, food and of course dancing. There were some tender moments and some fun ones during the first dance.

at one point, it became a first "family" dance

Jena and DJ are popular with their family and friends, as the cameras came out for the cake cutting!

The cake topper was the perfect setting for a ring shot! Lots of bling...

After some food and drink, it was time for more dancing. I'm not sure who was having more fun

Jena and DJ, we had a great time at your wedding and we apprecieate you including us in your special day! We wish you both the best and hope you will enjoy this brief preview of your wedding day while we finish up your wedding day gallery!
