Oh my goodness, you guys!!! You’re going to love this one! Every single thing about this Toccoa Falls, Georgia Destination Wedding was to die for! Even when it started dumping rain on us, we managed to get some cute photos out of it! One of my favorite weddings to date, that’s for sure!
Let’s start with the details! Kristen got her beautiful dress from The Bridal Connection in Longmont, Colorado. It fit her like a dream and she looked so amazing. It had exquisite lace detail with just the right about of sparkle. I loved her combination of pearl and rhinestone jewelry, it complimented her dress and her perfectly. For their colors, they chose a combination of yellow and black to pay homage to JP’s favorite team the Pittsburgh Steelers. At first, you might think there’s no way that would work for a wedding, but Kristen pulled it all together beautifully! Beautiful yellow roses and yellow bridesmaid dresses with the perfect little accents of black all came together for an elegant wedding look. #nailedit!
Kristen & JP shared their vows in front of the stunning Toccoa Falls waterfall, which is a very special spot for the two of them, and now even more so. Believe me, when I say that photos (even mine) do not do it justice. If you’re ever in this section of Georgia, take the time to stop by and see it, you won’t regret it! It only took a tiny bit of persuading to get Kristen to agree to get in the water after the ceremony, and personally, I think it was totally worth it! She was such a good sport about the whole thing, even when it started raining and we had to rush out of there! But how many people can say they have wedding photos IN a waterfall?!
After the ceremony, we headed over to the Curahee Club, another seriously gorgeous venue, for the reception. Kristen and JP danced the night away surrounded by all their friends and family (and the Penguins game).
Kristen and JP, thank you so much for bringing me out to your Georgia destination wedding to be a part of your special day. It was gorgeous from start to finish and I’m so honored I got to be there to see it all and capture these photographs for you. I know you two are going to have such a happy life together, and I can’t wait to see where it takes you!
I also have to give a huge, HUGE thank you to my amazing 2nd photographer extraordinaire/travel buddy/waffle house spotter (ps you lost!) Corrie Brockman!! You’re amazing, lady and I loved having you with me!
