I just love Krista and Paul! I got to spend time with them for their engagement session and then Krista’s bridal session, so when their wedding came I already felt like part of the family! Krista and Paul had a beautiful First Look at Pebble Hill Plantation before heading to the First United Methodist Church in Thomasville to get married. Then everyone headed back to Pebble Hill and while I stole Krista and Paul for some photos in the amazing light, their guests enjoyed live music, drinks, and cigars at the cocktail hour. As guests walked into the tented reception they were greeted by live quail, hanging chandeliers, and beautiful candelabras on the tables. Amy with Papaya Wedding Planning fulfilled Krista’s vision of a French Southern theme perfectly. The night was truly one to remember!
Krista purchased her beautiful Romona Keveza wedding gown at Bridals by Lori in Atlanta. And those shoes. THOSE SHOES! I don’t know how Krista walked in those heels all day, but she is a high-heel pro!
We did the First Look in the Plantation House and the lighting was absolutely beautiful!
Nicole, my second shooter, got this angle of the first look:
Paul’s bow tie was custom made with real quail feathers (same with all of the groomsmen’s bow ties). And the boutonniere had a feather in it as well, tying everything together perfectly.
The cocktail hour was held in the tennis courts at Pebble Hill and the tented reception was right next door. Both spaces were adorned with rentals from Terri Smith Details.
Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces are out of this world! I’ve photographed two weddings with them and the dance floor is never empty. If you want an amazing reception with tons of dancing and fun, you need to hire them!
While I captured the guys on the floor…..
….Nicole was able to get this great shot of Krista’s reaction.
Congratulations Krista and Paul! It was such an honor to be a part of your journey!!!!
