Things are not always what they seem. https://willowwindphoto.com/blog/2020/2/things-are-not-always-what-they-seem I can't believe this is February! This warm weather is amazing. I'm sitting in front of my computer, windows open, taking it all in. This unseasonably warm weather has me thinking about how "things are not always what they seem". I'm including a few of my favorite shots from wedding days where this was the case. Keep reading, you'll see where I'm headed.  


As many of you may know, Sunset Pavilion at Brasstown Valley is a picture perfect spot. However, it can also be very windy. I was so thankful this couple was willing to brave the cold January winds on their wedding day. (I don't think it got above freezing that day.)  


Rain on your wedding day? They say it's good luck, but hard for great photos. This bride was literally sitting in the falling rain. (Her hubby was close by, ready to jump in with the umbrella.)


This sweet couple had it all! Their Spring Break wedding had the best of everything; rain, snow, and lots of snuggles. 


What's the point to all this? You can't control every aspect of your wedding day, no matter how hard you try. Make sure you enjoy it. Sometimes the best shots come from unplanned moments where all the right elements simply come together.

We started the day off right, tucked in the trees with the fall colors surrounding us. Juliette Chapel in Dahlonega made the perfect setting for their intimate ceremony. Next, the reception followed at 6140 Events in Cumming, GA.


A huge shot out to Kelsey with Events by Dezine who kept everything running perfectly smooth!

I also can't forget Sue with JB Jams who made sure they're wasn't a dull moment!

Fall Wedding at The Barn at Young Harris https://willowwindphoto.com/blog/2018/11/fall-wedding-at-the-barn-at-young-harris The fall colors were in full display this past weekend for Song and Adam's wedding at The Barn at Young Harris.


Everyone has a different opinion on first looks. Should the groom see you for the first time as you're walking down the aisle? Or should he see you before the ceremony in a moment for the two of you to share, embrace, giggle and calm each others nerves?

Regardless of when he sees you, its guaranteed to be magical. 

Personally, I absolutely love first looks! They are one of my favorite parts of the day. This is when I capture images that quickly become some of my all time favorites.

Featured Wedding Venue: The Homestead at Cloudland Station, Chickamauga, GA https://willowwindphoto.com/blog/2018/9/featured-wedding-venue-the-homestead-at-cloudland-station-chickamauga-ga Did you know that nearly 40% of engagements happen between November and February?

I think it's safe to say that engagement season is upon us. So for all of those couples who may be getting engaged this Holiday Season, I have decided to do some posts featuring certain venues. Some of these venues are well known to a lot of couples. While others may be hidden gems just waiting to be discovered by a newly engaged couple. So let's have some fun with this...

Our First Venue to be featured will be in two parts. Cloudland Station in Chickamauga, GA has two lovely venues to host your wedding. Today, we will will highlight "The Homestead" at Cloudland Station. 

The Homestead is a timeless venue in the middle of a vast nature preserve where you can incorporate a historic feel with modern conveniences.

Peacock Hall provides the backdrop for this location. This is also where your bridal party can begin their day with hair and makeup.

Ceremonies can either take place directly in front of Peacock Hall or across the way with this serene view of the lake.

Immediately next door is this historic barn that was originally built in Pennsylvania. It was then relocated piece by piece to its new home at Cloudland Station. This adds a unique twist to your reception.

I hope you have enjoyed this venue. Up next, we will look at the second part of Cloudland Station, Candlelight Ridge.

I love being able capture a couple's wedding day. From their vows to each other, to their first kiss as husband and wife, and then finally to send them off on their honeymoon. Each wedding day is filled with so much emotion. Being able to witness and be a part of that is truly an honor.


The Barn at Young Harris  is one of my favorite venues to shoot. It always provides breathtaking mountain views for wedding ceremonies and this past weekend was no exception.

The Hackney Warehouse: 50th Anniversary Celebration https://willowwindphoto.com/blog/2018/6/the-hackney-warehouse-50th-anniversary-celebration Meet Jenny and Alan. In June 1968 this couple pledged their love to each other. This June 2018 marks 50 years since their original wedding vows. As you will see from the photos below they are still very much in love.


Together with their family and friends, Jenny and Alan had their 50th wedding anniversary celebration at the beautiful Hackney Warehouse in downtown Murphy, NC.


I hope you enjoy this preview. I will admit, this is the first time I have had the pleasure to capture a couples "vow renewal". I'm known for being very tenderhearted and tearing up at some point during each wedding that I photograph. However, just watching this couple all evening, realizing that this is what can become of all the "newlyweds" that I photograph on so make occasions.. I stand in awe.


I just love this shot while they are holding their original wedding photo.

Jenny's wedding dress on display. What a neat idea!

Another beautiful cake by LaMuir.

Look at these two! 50 years and they still can't keep from grinning at each other!!

Hooked on Bryant https://willowwindphoto.com/blog/2018/4/hooked-on-bryant "Hooked on Bryant" was the theme of Natalie and Lucas's wedding this past weekend.

This couple wasn't going to let a plummet in temperature or rain get in the way of the perfect wedding day that they had anticipated for such a long time!

I'm so glad that they didn't, because their wedding was wonderful. The setting, so serene, made an awesome backdrop for Natalie and Lucas to begin their forever.

Handmade by Natalie's Grandfather.

As the night went on, we made sure to warm up next to the fire!

Brasstown Valley Resort Wedding; Ashley and Jeff https://willowwindphoto.com/blog/2018/2/brasstown-valley-resort-wedding-ashley-and-jeff You can't tell the story of Ashley and Jeff without first talking about Ashley's adorable mini-me. When asked who her favorite princess is, she simply replies "My Mommy".

This sweet couple and their families traveled from Florida to have this amazing view as the backdrop for their wedding ceremony. All day, the clouds were heavy, and we feared rain. As everyone began to walk down the aisle, the sun began to beam down.

Congratulations Ashley and Jeff!

You have to start the day off right.. What better place than Equani Spa..

While the girls were at the Spa, this was going on back at the Barn.

Scrabble, anyone? 

The ceremony..

The entire wedding watched as this storm approached across the mountain, easing closer and closer.

And then all of a sudden, the storm shifted and moved to the side, giving way for this amazing backdrop. It was so beautiful that everyone got up from their dinner and walked out on the field, snapping photos.

Congratulations, Katie and Cooper!!

The Best Day Ever! https://willowwindphoto.com/blog/2015/10/the-best-day-ever The Best Day Ever! Where should we begin? Although their wedding day started long before they said their "I Do's", we'll begin our story there.

With some beautiful fall foliage, and a peaceful creek flowing nearby, Jenna and Chris exchanged their vows, and started their forever. Did I mention that Chris had the most handsome best man?! Greyson did a stellar job as Chris' best man!

I don't know if I've ever confessed this or not, but with ever wedding I photograph, there's always one moment that gets me. I take a breath and before I know it, I feel the tears coming on. It's always something different, something I don't expect. At the Mummaw wedding, it was watching as they poured their individual sands into the one container to symbolize their new union. However instead of two bottles of sand, there were three. One for Jenna, one for Chris, and one for Greyson. What a great way to symbolize their new family!


Following the ceremony, the guests relocated to the tent across the street for more fun and touching speeches, followed by lots of hugs and laughter. It truly was The Best Day Ever!

What an honor to be a part of their special day!

Willow Creek Falls Wedding https://willowwindphoto.com/blog/2015/8/willow-creek-falls-wedding I had such a wonderful time photographing this wedding at the beautiful Willow Creek Falls and Vineyard. This venue is such a gem. You drive down a narrow road, only to be surprised as the road opens to a beautiful building, nestled next to a lake where if the lighting is just right, you can capture a perfect refection of the bride and groom. 

Michayla and Tyler's wedding day was fun filled, with perfect weather, and lots of laughter. Seeing the couple participate in the foot washing service was very humbling. Then, as the sun started to set in the peaceful little town of Blue Ridge, GA, it was off to the reception for more laughs, and a few tears as well when Tyler surprised Michayla with a song that he had written. 

Peaceful Bride
