Sam and Chris’ unique twist to their wedding day
I have been looking forward to this wedding for YEARS! ✨ Chris and Sam found me through my brother. They all happened to major in music at Kennessaw State University and that’s how Sam and Chris’ love story began.
With their music backgrounds, it was only natural that they would have amazing musicians performing at their wedding ceremony (can’t compare that to a Spotify playlist!).
The DJ at their reception also caught out attention! DJ DMark’s mixing was super unique and fun to dance to (keep scrollin’ to fun dance photos of everyone having a great time) .
The Bridal Suite | Getting Ready Photos
The bridal suite is absolutely beautiful! So simple details that make the experience super dreamy. Not to mention, there is a lot of space and a nice bathroom to get ready at.
The Details | All over the venue
Like I mentioned above, there are a LOT of precious little (and BIG) awesome details that make the Cotton Gin at Mill Creek incredibly unique and just fun to walk around at.
As wedding photographers, having a venue that is so beautiful just makes our jobs easier, and gives us many backdrops to use! Chris and I had a blast here!
Portraits | The Bridal Party
I bet you can’t even tell that a storm ⛈ hit this wedding during the reception ;)..it did. Every bride’s worst fear came true, and it didn’t matter because everyone was inside this beautiful place having a blast!
We were also lucky enough to get all of the photos done before it started raining (and the rain stopped just before the sparkler send-off too!)
Party time! 🙌🏻 | The Reception
The staff worked so hard to make every single detail look perfect before the guests sat down. The ambiance with the candles and the music was very relaxing.
My favorite part was seeing Sam and Chris’ handwritten letters waiting on their plates. Such a sweet and romantic detail.
