SO YOU'RE ENGAGED

WATERFALL ADVENTURE SESSION

Weddings

April 18, 2017

Dara + Brodie // George’s 217 Wedding

Dara and Brodie’s George’s 217 wedding was one for the books. From the massive Kardashian-esque floral wall at the church, to the gorgeously decorated reception rooms—their day was glamorous, elegant, and brimming with incredible details. After photographing their waterfall engagement session last October, I KNEW their wedding would be amazing. 🙂

I love this incredible bouquet created by Lola’s. It smelled incredible and had SO many gorgeous textures!

OH. THESE. SHOES!!! Details are some of my favorite photos of the day and I am a lover of gorgeous shoes. These Badgley Mishka pumps gave Dara her “something blue” and had the most glamorous jeweled backs. <3 Yes please.

You cannot go wrong with monogrammed flannel shirts! This was such a fun added touch and I loved how it mixed classic with cozy for the perfect bridesmaid gifts. <3

This is the same veil that Dara’s mother wore on her wedding day. (Something borrowed?!)

Aren’t these bridesmaid dresses gorgeous? I love the light-flowy fabric and the deep burgundy Dara chose!

The ceremony was held at Valley Grove Baptist Church.

Isn’t that floral wall AMAZING? Lola’s seriously outdid themselves!

One of the things I love most about Dara is her ability to radiate joy.

This. Right here. The expression on her face as she walked towards Brodie says everything about their love for one another.

After the exchanging of the rings, Dara + Brodie were surrounded by family for a moment of prayer.

I will always say yes to sunset portraits on a gorgeous vintage trolley!

Dara—STOP. <3 Seriously, this girl is stunning!!!

George’s 217 is quickly becoming one of my favorite wedding venues. I can’t get enough of the vintage tiled ceiling or those gorgeous crystal chandeliers! The reception room was beautifully adorned with long rectangular tables, elegant garland centerpieces, and a stunning monogram projection.

Dara and her father shared a sweet dance that turned into an epic dance-off!

Matt Carroll and the Browncoats were AMAZING! Over the years, I’ve heard a lot of wedding bands play, but these guys blew me away. They were fun, talented, had an amazing range of music, and kept guests happy and dancing through the night! 🙂

I’m going to go ahead and say it—confetti cannon exits are my FAVORITE!!
