Tad and Abbie Russell | Athens | Alyssa Alig Photography

First Spring wedding of the year!  After five years of courting, they were married at Athens Campus View Church.  This wedding was blessed with lots of something blue.  Abbie made the invitations herself!  She has some amazing prints and Tad is studying to be a pastor.

Abbie and Tad had a seen ease and joy when together.  Details to note:  blue/purple orchids, burlap and trees at the ceremony, and pretty hair pieces for the bridesmaids.  Such a joy to photograph!

Pretty, pretty song from their site:

If I was a flower growing wild and free
All I’d want is you to be my sweet honey bee.
And if I was a tree growing tall and green
All I’d want is you to shade me and be my leaves

All I want is you, will you be my bride
Take me by the hand and stand by my side
All I want is you, will you stay with me?
Hold me in your arms and sway me like the sea.
