This week officially marks the beginning of my summer and I cannot tell you how magical it has been so far! I surprisingly have the whole month of July off from weddings, which leaves me 4 amazing weeks to actually sit down and do a lot of things that have been piling up on my to-do list for some time now. One of those things happens to be finishing up Allison + Stephen's wedding gallery and I have to tell you guys, this one just takes the cake!
This one was a special wedding for Jeramie and I to work + photograph because Jeramie was fraternity brothers with Stephen back in college so not only were we good friends with Allison + Stephen already but we also knew the majority of the attendees in the crowd! It was a small college reunion of sorts and we loved every minute!
The wedding day took place at one of Epting Events venues, The Hill, located right outside of Downtown Athens and man was this place amazing! A historic home to get ready in, a sunken garden area + pool to host the ceremony and cocktail hour, and a big white, southern tent pitched in an open field for guests to dance the night away in pretty much makes for the perfect wedding!
Not to mention that these two and all their guests handled the 90 degree weather and insane amount of humidity with such grace that you would never know looking at these portraits that it was one of the hottest days of the year so far!
The whole day was filled with nothing but the sweetest smiles and laughter and it was such an honor to capture this amazing chapter of two friend's lives! Congrats to the new Mr. + Mrs. Stephen Hamilton! Enjoy some of my favorites below :)
