Laura and Wes got married at The State Botanical Garden of Georgia on a beautiful July day.I have never seen a wedding band like Laura's. Isn't it beautiful?And her dress was just perfect. The exact right combination of ruching and lace!Laura and Wes, like many of the couples I photograph, chose to see each other before the ceremony. This allows for a private, personal moment between the bride and groom - the "first look." It also allows us to get most of the wedding party and family photographs taken before the ceremony begins. That way everyone can get to the reception much faster, and the guests don't have to wait so long for the bride and groom! Here are the photos from Laura and Wes' first look.This is the "Men's Dressing Room" at the Day Chapel - It's much more like a closet. A tiny closet that doesn't even hold all of the guys in the wedding party!! Luckily, guys don't need much time or space to get ready!The Wedding Party.Wes and Laura with the adorable Flower Girls and Ring Bearer.Wes and Laura with their parents.The ring bearer was quite proud of his "pillow." It even had the real rings attached!!Having fun before the ceremony. Beautiful bouquets by Gardenia Floral Design.Laura - waiting on the stairs for the ceremony to begin. One of the flower girls was keeping her smiling, being silly on the other side of the railing.I'll post the ceremony next!!
