If you’re one of the several people who have been
begging me waiting to see more pictures of the wedding, today’s your lucky day. All pictures are by Melissa Prosser Photography.
Our wedding was at Druid Hills Baptist Church in Atlanta. It’s a gorgeous church built in 1928. My aunt and uncle were married there, as well as my cousin and his wife, so it has a bit of history with my family. When we were searching for churches and my mother mentioned this one, it was kind of a done deal for me.
My dress was a Sottero & Midgley, style “Rebecca”. That wasn’t planned at all, but it was pretty exciting when I found out that the dress I’d chosen shared a name with me. My veil was borrowed from Candence.
The pearls I wore during the ceremony were given to my mother by my granddaddy, and I had two garters – I threw the My Little Pony one, and kept the blue on.
Tim and I opted to have a “first look”. It just made it easier to get some of the pictures out of the way and it eased my nerves to see him beforehand.
We decided to have an unplugged ceremony, where we encouraged our friends and family to put away cameras and phones. I love that everyone was fully present rather than staring at a screen, and there were no iPhones in front of faces in our pictures.
Our family friend, Jeremy Ezell, played two songs. He played “A Thousand Years” before the processional and while we (literally) tied the knot, he played “Love Never Fails”.
At the end, I guess Tim was really really excited, because he practically ran back down the aisle!
