I am so excited to finally be able to share these photos from The Celebration Society's 20th Anniversary issue with y'all! When Jennifer + Candace from Evermore Weddings & Events approached me in the spring about a styled shoot, I immediately jumped on board! They already had a theme in mind, & we found the perfect models...but we were struggling to find a venue that incorporated the fresh, southern feel they were hoping for. Then, thanks to a recommendation from another amazing vendor in the area, we stumbled into The Retreat at Guidestone Hills, where their 10+ acre (working!) blueberry farm spoke straight to our southern belle hearts. The Evermore girls began to visualize the end result of the day...but I don't think any of us were prepared for the utter romance that would materialize out of it. Amanda & Kevin were the perfect couple to model for this shoot (Candace dubbed them a "young Tim & Faith"), & the real love they have for one another radiated straight through the camera. With vintage rentals from Aunt Winnie's Attic, a hand-painted table runner, a customized bar cart,  & a monogrammed cake, this shoot was every southern belle's dream.  Even though it was a typical Georgia summer day (AKA hot as blue blazes), getting there for that early sunrise light made it all worth it. I hope you enjoy some of our favorite images from the day below! Make sure to scroll to the bottom for a full list of these amazing vendors, & as always...celebrate love!
