Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club | Douglasville, GA | June 11, 2016
Kim and Josh got married this past weekend at one of my favorite venues. Their Foxhall Resort wedding was amazing! Ironically enough though, I have never taken pictures at this venue for a wedding. However, Ben shot a wedding here almost three years ago for me while I was on maternity leave; plus, I did a styled shoot here just a month ago. So while I haven’t shot a wedding here before, I have had some time with Foxhall and love the venue, so I am very glad to have finally been able to add this venue to my wedding list!
I met Kim and Josh through shooting Alicia and Alex’s wedding. Their moms know each other and they saw the pictures I took for Alicia and Alex’s wedding and contacted me for their Foxhall Resort wedding! We had a blast earlier this year at their engagement session. Josh is a guy after my own heart as he’s a Falcons fan, but he’s married to a Patriots fan! I guess they can overlook that. Hopefully it won’t come up too often in their marriage! haha
Kim and Josh met in undergrad at GCSU and both went to physical therapy school in Florida together. They’re both PT’s! I love it! So cool!! And many of their wedding party went to college with them- I think the bridesmaids told me that 6 of Kim’s 10 bridesmaids were in the same sorority together at school and most of them knew each other ahead of time! This made for such a fun wedding party and a ton of great pictures as a group! I seriously haven’t laughed so hard as I have with this fun wedding party!
Summer days in Georgia can be hot, and this Foxhall Resort wedding did not disappoint! We braved through the weather and took some awesome outdoor pics. We kept cool by drinking lots of water, taking breaks inside, and even letting Kim use my son’s battery-powered fan in my car while we drove with the AC blasting from one location to the next!
For the first time in over 6 years, I didn’t have Ben joining me at a wedding. He had a wedding to attend as a guest prior to booking this one, so I brought along a different person with me this time. It was weird not having Ben, but if I had to shoot without him, Evie could not have been a better replacement for the day. She simply rocked it out and was the best help all day long! Thanks Evie for all of your amazing help during the day! And congrats to Kim and Josh! Thanks for letting us be a part of your special Foxhall Resort wedding!
Y’all, look at those shoes!! I love the glitter! This is the year of the gorgeous shoes! There was lots of organized chaos in the bridal suite! Kim’s girls put together a scrapbook with pictures and letters to Kim. She was trying not to cry when I took this picture of her! (Not covering her face to hide from me!) Kim was the sweetest- she gave her family members presents on her wedding day. This was a sweet moment of Kim giving her mother her gift. Josh opening up his gift from Kim Dad’s First Look. I loved it! Sister, Kaitlyn and Mom getting emotional during Daddy-Daughter First Look Handkerchief’s she gave both of her parents. So sweet! And now Kim getting to open her gift from JoshFirst Look! I LOVE it! Kim didn’t get to give Josh his letter when she gave him the present, so he got to read it and open up one more small present during their First Look I LOVED the back of her dress! So pretty! So cool story about these pictures- taken at the same time by both of us. Two VERY different views and angles! Why I always love having a second shooter with me… even if it isn’t Ben! I LOVE Evie’s shot on the left! Do y’all see that succulent in her bouquet?? I loved their fun socks! One of Josh’s groomsmen designed them all! There was even a 1996 Olympics one! Y’all, I LOVE this dip kiss! I normally don’t post recessional pics of the wedding party, but this one had to be shared- fishhook and all! We took a few more pictures after the ceremony while people were eating. The sunset was gorgeous! I loved all of the details for the reception! Kiss the wife….wipe off the lipstick Great best man speech by Kurt! Spin the bottle at the reception. Landed on you and you had to dance- it landed on me once and I even went out there- cameras and all! Donut man at the reception! It was sooooo yummy! We snuck out towards the end of the evening for a few nighttime shots. I loved this one under the arbor! And then this awesome shot!
