Josh and Jill Jenkins Wedding | Thompson House and Gardens | Athens, GA

Josh and Jill met at the Episcopal Student Center when she was a sophomore and he was a freshman. They became friends and hung out all the time. They started dating a year later, and they’ve been inseparable since!

On the day of their engagement, Josh and Jill spent the whole day at the Georgia Aquarium before heading to dinner at the Ritz. Josh proposed over a glass of champagne with her great-grandmother’s ring and Jill was completely surprised.

Josh and Jill got married at the Thompson House and Gardens in Bogart, Georgia. They chose a beautiful color combination of lapis and pool blue. Jill wore an A-line dress with a sweetheart top along with blue shoes. I love when brides add a splash of color to what they’re wearing. Jill, I must say, was absolutely stunning!

They said their vows under a flower-draped awning. The reception followed and Josh and Jill danced the night away. The bridal party was a blast! They were laughing the whole night.

The reception had shabby-chic décor. I love the contemporary rustic decorations. John and Jill had a lovebird cake topper and burlap accents for their centerpieces.

One of my favorite parts of the wedding was their exit. They walked through a sparkler-lit pathway to their powder blue Triumph Spitfire get-away car. They had such a fun wedding and I loved shooting it. John and Jill, I wish you all the best in the future! Congrats!
