Kelly + Joel | Villa Christina Spring Wedding
I often get clients that book me for their wedding photography without meeting me in person – and to me, that is the biggest compliment! I spoke with Kelly on the phone and when we finally did meet, they were already my favorites! I met with her and Joel on a crisp fall day and remember thinking what a great match they were together. Kind and easygoing and so excited about their wedding!! Unfortunately, Kelly’s father passed away a few months before the wedding and I remember how sweet Kelly was when she emailed me, apologizing for needing to reschedule their engagement session that was coming up. I was crushed for her and knew that capturing their Engagement Photos at Roswell Mill would all work out in time!
Their wedding day at the Hyatt Regency at Villa Christina was relaxed and beautiful as I knew it would be. Carol with Oh! Ccasions was amazing as always, she is one of Atlanta’s best wedding planners and we work together often! The ceremony was held at Kelly’s family church and we were able to capture some pretty amazing wedding party portraits and bride and groom portraits in the Gardens at the Hyatt before the rain came in! All week the forecast called for a high chance of rain and thunderstorms and Kelly’s cool and collected grace is what held the weather for us, I’m sure! Or maybe it was her dad looking down. Regardless – I really enjoyed capturing this Villa Christina Spring Wedding – Kelly + Joel, I know great things are in store for both of you and your marriage! Can’t wait!
