Sunshine, sunflowers, and stunning golden hours are just a few of my favorite things. This Grant Hill’s wedding had all of this and more, but even better it had Lauren and Jake. I have been friends with them for many years and it was a joy to shoot their sunny, southern wedding! The charm is truly in the details. From the string lights in their wedding venue to their honey jar wedding favors, this bride and groom took their wedding day to the next level.
A Southern Wedding at Grant Hill’s Farm
One of my favorite details was their wedding cake. Their cake topper was a super cute pair of wooden deer antlers with their inital in the middle. AH-dorable. The bridesmaids dresses were a deep beautiful blue that looked super pretty against the green grass of their outdoor wedding ceremony. Speaking of beautiful dresses, Lauren looked stunning in her wedding dress. It was lacey, white, and looked like a dress fit for a princess.
There was dancing, a sparkler send-off, and laughter among friends and family that made the whole day full of fun moments that I won’t soon forget!
But, before this gorgeous wedding day, there was Lauren & Jake’s love story.
It’s one for the books.
Lauren & Jake’s Love Story
Lauren and Jacob met in Athens, GA six years ago. Their meeting was one that made Lauren believe in love at first sight, it was a moment where she just knew that Jake was the love of her life. She followed that feeling and several years later she and Jake got engaged! Jake proposed while the two were on vacation in St. George Island in Florida. It was a huge surprise as Lauren’s family showed up out of nowhere. They took family pictures together and then Jake asked Lauren to marry him.
I was lucky enough to be asked to shoot their engagement at Williams Mill Greenspace in Flowery Branch, GA where they brought their fur baby. Just like their wedding day, their engagement shoot was just as lovely!

It was so great getting to shoot your wedding! Thank you for having me and for asking me to capture your big day. I wish you both years of love, celebration, and happiness!
