We could write another paragraph on how much we love Neverland, but we’ll spare you. If you keep up with our blog, you already know it’s one of our favorite venues around! Suzy and the gang make it such a pleasure to shoot there. And for this wedding, our couple Lauren + Adam made it that much more of a pleasure. We absolutely LOVE happy brides – nothing can get in their way!
And thanks again to our intern, Amelia, for helping us out on Allie’s last wedding before the baby comes!
happy one year anniversary to brittany + adam!
their wedding was so beautiful – take a look back at it here.
brittany + adam: miss you guys! here’s to many more wonderful years together!

we met amy + kurt at janna + adam’s beautiful wedding. kurt is janna’s brother. so, we were familiar with the amazing property where we started out. charlotte + olivia – kurt’s daughters – joined us for the first few shots!
charlotte + olivia are totally adorable!
next, we went with kurt + amy over to emory university to get some shots of them alone.
we love how goofy they are together!
amy + kurt: thanks for letting us hang out with you guys and for braving the cold saturday morning! i’m sure you’re used to it. we can’t wait to visit tulsa for the wedding!

when we scheduled a meeting to meet janna and go over some wedding details, we found ourselves as guests at her parents’ house where the ceremony was to be held. we were immediately welcomed in as friends, given a tour of the (amazing) property, and treated to dinner out on the deck under the perfect summer sky. you never would have known that we were 5 minutes from one of the major highways in atlanta! it was such a perfect place for a wedding – huge backyard, a beautiful lake, and even dramatic lighting! but it wasn’t just the scenery we were in awe of, it was the family that we fell in love with. the vanderyts are truly amazing – AND they’re dutch! bonus! after attending the wedding, we found out we weren’t the only ones who felt the same way. (check out the slideshow here)
a few details:
janna gets ready:
we met adam the night before at the rehearsal dinner. we could tell right away why janna was head over heels for him.
a little brotherly love!
i love that janna had her mom as a bridesmaid!
adam had a note delivered to janna right before the ceremony – so sweet.
adam gets emotional watching his bride walking towards him
their back yard was the perfect place for a wedding – and sentimental.
adam was way too sweet!
janna and her dad. i’m not sure if it’s similar personalities or because they’re dutch, but chris and mr. vanderyt hit it off immediately. they were one in the same.
janna and adam had dinner on the balcony overlooking the reception before they went down to mingle.
it was such a beautiful night for a wedding!
and it was definitely a party!
last but not least, a look at the amazing vanderyt property. they had lots of candles floating out on the lake. see what i mean about the dramatic lighting? it was perfect.
thanks to camille for helping us get some beautiful detail shots!
janna + adam: we hope you two have an awesome life together, congratulations! thank you for allowing us to spend this beautiful day with you.

we’ve been away from the computer for a while, but it’s nice to be back home! we have some new blog posts comin’ your way this week. first up is emily + adam! they got hitched last saturday, june 27th, in fairburn, georgia at first baptist church. it was HOT, but they had plenty of cold drinks and fans at the reception in an old barn with tents set up outside!
makeup : mirror mirror makeup
band : peachtree jazz edition
caterer : janice redding
the guys wore brown suits and looked great!
emily had the perfect number of bridesmaids – she had to use all of them to help her put on her dress!
emily had green shoes to match the bridesmaids dresses… and her eyes, which are absolutely gorgeous!
trying to cool down before the walk to adam. as soon as she saw adam when they opened the doors, her face went from nervous to happy in less than a second. she even gave him a little wave, which made him smile even bigger! so cute.
adam had a special song prepared for emily – he sang and played piano. how romantic is that??
the kiss! mr. + mrs. palmer!
we stole the happy couple away for a few shots before they hit the dance floor the rest of the night!
the whole bridal party showing off their poses.
check out the bling!
how HOT are emily’s legs?? adam, you are one lucky guy!
everything at the reception was amazing – the cupcake bridal cake, the glass bottles of coke, lemonade in mason jars with straws, and the live band!
this couple was ridiculous on the dance floor!
a BIG thank you to camille for second shooting with me (allie) and grabbing some super awesome shots! everyone should check her out. :)
emily + adam : congratulations! we hope your honeymoon was amazing. thank you for allowing us to share your wedding day. it was beautiful and so much fun, just like the two of you!
