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

Put on some Tom Petty while you scroll this post.

They said farewell to their wedding with the song “American Girl.”  It reminded me of road trips in the summers with my family, windows down, with the breeze sifting our cares away  (this is one of my favorite ways to spend an evening, wandering the country side and letting your thoughts roam along the landscape).

These two were wed this past weekend at Ashford Manor.  There were subtle nods to who they were as a couple throughout the day.  Their vows were said under a birch arbor that was constructed from her Kayleigh’s grandmother’s farm, which was just sold.  Her family constructed it for just this occasion.  There were wildflowers scattered throughout the grounds.  FAV SHOT is of Kayleigh and Alan just after walking down the aisle as husband and wife in a grove of bamboo reeds.

“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.” *

The wedding was thoughtful and genuine and I was honored to be a part of it.  Enjoy and leave them some love!

L.A.

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. “
