ELIZABETH + JOHN / HISTORIC RANKIN HOUSE WEDDING AND RECEPTION

The Rankin House in Columbus, Georgia was the perfect spot for Elizabeth and John’s wedding and reception. Constructed between 1860 - 1870, this pillar of history has been adored throughout the years. As Executive Director of Historic Columbus Foundation, Elizabeth’s office is on the second floor of this stunning house. Ironically, the Rankin House has been the home of several of John’s ancestors. The ceremony took place on the front lawn under a gorgeous gazebo with the reception following throughout the interior of the home and on the back terrace. A little rain did not “dampen” the day! Rain on the wedding day brings good luck!

SARAH + JON / ST. PAUL UNITED METHODIST CHURCH BIG EDDY CLUB

It is wonderful when we get to work with one of our families again! This time, Sarah was the bride, and just like her sister Caroline, our paths have crossed many times over the years. We spent her 6th grade year together… she as one of my STAR students and I as her teacher. Following in her father and sister’s footsteps, our bride is now Sarah Jarrell. MD! (Proud teacher moment!) When Jon and I met, I knew that she had found “the one” and Jon would always keep their lives together full of fun! This stunning wedding was a true testament to her mother’s exquisite taste and full of the details that excite us all! (Notice the “guitar” groom’s cake… so creative and absolutely yummy!)

SALLY + BRAD / CHURCH WEDDING AND ENCHANTING RECEPTION

St. Paul United Methodist Church and the Rivermill in Columbus, Georgia were the perfect settings for Sally + Brad’s romantic wedding! Sally’s family ties to her church, along with the fact that she works there as a youth minister, made it even sweeter! (Her youth group, along with the couple’s pup, Pitty, were waiting on the steps following the ceremony to be the first to congratulate Mr. and Mrs. Bowden!) The Rivermill was like an enchanted garden, complete with gorgeous florals and luminous lighting!

CAROLINE + NATHAN / ST. PAUL UNITED METHODIST CHURCH & BIG EDDY CLUB

What a thrill it was to be able to cross paths with this sweet girl again! In our former lives, I was her 6th grade teacher, and she was one of my sharpest students! Flash forward to 2017, now Caroline Jarrell, DMD announced her engagement to Mr. Nathan Hill… a perfect match for her! This ceremony and reception was the epitome of the Southern classic wedding! Every element was as charming as the next, and the little touches of whimsey (the couple’s dogs joining them for the First Look) were what made it fresh and fun! Make sure to notice the details in these gorgeous photographs!
