Roswell Mill Club | Roswell, GA | September 10, 2016
Ever since I moved to Roswell over four years ago, I have wanted to shoot a wedding in Roswell. Within one mile of my house, there are seven wedding venues. I’m not exaggerating when I say there are that many and that close! I have gotten inquiries from brides, but never had a wedding in Roswell. I had one booked for a few years ago, but they ended up cancelling the wedding. I have had two brides book me before their venues were set, both looking at venues in Roswell, but both ended up booking outside of Roswell. So when Molly contacted me in January after the Georgia Bridal Show about wanting Ben and me to shoot her wedding, and she was looking at two possible dates for the Roswell Mill, I was ecstatic! One of the dates I had booked, so I told her that she should pick the other date. 😉 Well wouldn’t you know that their date that worked out better for them got booked the week before?? I was so disappointed! What are the odds?
Well, I thought about it and decided to offer something we had never done before, but do a split for the day: I go to the wedding I booked already and have Ben take the lead at this wedding and shoot her wedding. After doing some talking, we found out that not only did she love us as photographers; but her fiance, Austin, and Ben were in the same small group at Buckhead Church. What are the odds? She and Austin loved the idea of having Ben take the lead for their day, so I hired Evie Perez to join Ben while I went and shot Ashley and Dan’s wedding at Berry College. So while Mandi Mitchell Photography finally got our first Roswell wedding, I still haven’t shot in Roswell! Haha!
Ben told me that their day was so worshipful and beautiful. Love, laughter, and Jesus filled their entire day. You can see in the pictures how much they love each other, their family and friends, and especially Jesus. Their First Look pictures were simply the best. I smiled as a scrolled through their pictures and could see how excited they were to see each other and get married. These are seriously some of the best First Look shots we have ever gotten. I’ve never seen a sweeter or more emotional pictures of a couple’s parents than the ones Ben captured when the ceremony started. It was simply beautiful to see how much love everyone had for each other.
The evening was filled with lots of fun and laughter. Molly and Austin had the most epic First Dance. While they had a very traditional first part of their dance, they surprised their guests with shoes that were gold and lit up on the bottom and changed colors!! I mean, seriously… how cool is that?! I think everyone needs these awesome shoes! I loved getting to look through their pictures and see how much fun was had during their day. I totally wish I could have been there, but I knew they were in capable hands! I love all of the pictures Ben and Evie captured! I’m so proud of them and how well they represented my brand at the wedding and through the pictures they captured! Congrats Molly and Austin, and thank you for being amazing and trusting us to capture your day even though I wasn’t there. You two seriously rock! Love you both!
Look at Austin’s ring. It’s very unique- it’s make of elk horn! How cool! First Look time!Oh I love her reaction to seeing him!
Y’all, isn’t she just gorgeous!? What? Is Molly a model or something?? Molly got her skills from binge watching America’s Next Top Model! Haha! Oh I just love everything about this picture! Prayers with the wedding party and parents before the ceremony! Oh I love this set of pictures! Such precious and sweet emotions from the parents! Their cute dog was a part of their wedding party! I love it! You may kiss the bride!Confetti to celebrate they are married!
Light up shoes!!! I LOVE THESE! Their moms are awesome! Molly became a temporary 3rd shooter for the night- she took this pic of Ben and Austin!
