Joanna and Mark’s Classic Country Club of the South Wedding was an experience I will never forget!
Mark and Joanna’s day started out like any other for their Country Club of the South Wedding. Joanna and her bridesmaids got ready together and Mark did the same with the groomsmen. I want to thank Joanna’s dad and her sister for being amazing rockstars by helping me and Laura keep up with the guy’s ETA. It was amazing to have your help as we worked out the logistics between the two rooms! As Joanna got into her dress surrounded by women she loved, you could see how excited she was getting! Then, finally! It was the moment of truth. It was time for the first look.
Things were done a little differently this time. Instead of Joanna turning Mark immediately around to see her, they exchanged letters to each other for this very special day but still close enough to touch. After their touching moment, Joanna turned Mark around for the magical moment. Everything all morning had been building to this point and it was FINALLY time. You can just see the relief and the excitement on Mark’s face when he saw his future bride. It is still one of the sweetest things I have ever seen to this day.
The rest of the day was an amazing blur of memories and laughter and I’m so happy that I got to be a part of it. I think my favorite part was watching how this family came together to make their day special. Everyone from her niece to his sisters did their best to make it a memory they will never forget. Lastly, I want to give a big thank you to the ever amazing Laura Watson Photography for letting me tag along at this wedding as her second shooter. You are an absolute gem and I love working with you!
