There was so much love and thought that went into every detail of Chelsea and Ray’s beautiful wedding day. From the personalized hangers,and custom jewelry she gifted her bridesmaids, to the choreographed family dance at the reception, along with a surprise performance by the bride’s brother during the father daughter dance, plus special remembrances throughout the day in honor of loved ones who had passed, it was so special and completely unique to who they were as a couple. The wedding was not just a celebration of Chelsea and Ray, but of the love they have for their family, their friends, and God. It’s rare to see two people so calm and relaxed on their wedding day, but these two were so excited and confident in their love for one another, that they weren’t stressed about the details, they knew all that mattered is that they were together, and they were surrounded by the people they loved most!
The day started getting ready at Chelsea’s parents home in Cumming, then we headed to St. Benedict’s church in Johns Creek for their ceremony, followed by an awesome reception at The Estate in Atlanta, all pulled together flawlessly by a stellar team of vendors headed up by Sarah by SAS Weddings (links to everyone involved at the bottom of the post). Here is peek at some of my favorite photographs from the day!
Chelsea and Ray- It’s been such a joy getting to know you both! Thank you so much for entrusting me to document your wedding day! I hope after seeing how stunning you guys look in your photographs, that you can now laugh at how concerned you once we’re that you would be awkward in all of the pictures:) I wish you guys a lifetime of love and happiness! All the best, Bre
