Ashley & James's Chattanooga wedding

Who doesn't love a Thursday wedding? Ashley and James were married recently in Chattanooga at the Patten Chapel and the DoubleTree. We were thrilled to photograph their wedding!

James was actually a groomsman in Jon and Sandra's wedding that we photographed in Florida about five years ago.

Isn't she a beauty?

James is pretty cool too. ;-) He told me that he had been practicing so that he'd look good in front of the camera. I appreciate him trying to make my job easier. I guess he's thoughtful like that.

I love these next two:

Ashley and Chip as they enter the back of the church

At the DoubleTree we were able to get some fun portraits.

One of my favorite images of the day is this one, grabbed while everyone was watching a slideshow of Ashley and James' childhood.

Congratulations Ashley and James. Your wedding was beautiful and it was a joy to be there with you on such an exciting day. We wish you God's richest blessings as you begin your new life together.


Lani & Scott's Winter Park (Orlando) wedding

It's always an extra special treat when a bridesmaid from a previous wedding hires us for her wedding. I first met Lani at Maureen and Colin's wedding in 2006, and of course we were thrilled when she called to tell us that she was getting married.

The beautiful bride...


The florals were done by the talented Tommy Murphy from Greenery Productions

The newlyweds

I love the Winter Park Racquet Club

Lani's father also celebrated his 60th birthday that day

Lani and Scott's wedding was coordinated by the lovely and talented Dawn from Tickled Pink Brides. We always love working with the gals at Ticked Pink!

Thanks Lani and Scott for letting us be involved in your special day. It was truly an honor and we wish you many years of happiness and blessings together.
