alan pierce and kayleigh chapman | wedding | watkinsville, georgia | ashford manor and north campus

These two were wed this past weekend at Ashford Manor.  Their vows were said under a birch arbor that was constructed from her Kayleigh’s grandmother’s farm.  There were wildflowers scattered throughout the grounds.

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.” *

Photographed a precious couple a few months ago.  They flew me out to L.A, put me up at their place, and bought me lots of tasty food!  For a girl who hasn’t been west of the Mississippi, that was pretty amazing.

Took some time to  ”smell the sea, and feel the sky.”  If you ever get a chance to hike in Malibu, you should do so.  It’s a  lovely place to wonder.

“Here I came to the very edge 
where nothing at all needs saying, 
everything is absorbed through weather and the sea, 
and the moon swam back, 
its rays all silvered, 
and time and again the darkness would be broken 
by the crash of a wave, 
and every day on the balcony of the sea, 
wings open, fire is born, 
and everything is blue again like morning. “ 
— Pablo Neruda
