Misty & Jonathan's Wedding | Tryphena's Garden | Fort Valley (Perry) Wedding Photographer
Happy Memorial Day Weekend! We’re wrapping up a hectic, but amazing, double wedding weekend in Atlanta and Asheville, North Carolina. Two weddings, two cities, two amazing brides and grooms. But, the point of this blog post is not how much fun we’re having now, it’s how much fun I had back in April at Misty and Jonathan’s wedding at Tryphena’s Garden! I would probably categorize Misty as our ideal bride, she set aside about two full hours just for photos, which makes me a happy photographer =). We spent about an hour taking photos of the girls before the wedding with a few additional portraits of Misty, and about thirty minutes after the ceremony with the newlywed couple… plus some additional nighttime portraits here and there during the reception. To say that I had a blast at this wedding is an understatement with her amazing family and friends in attendance and all at an awesome outdoor wedding venue with photographic opportunities at every turn. Sit back and hold tight, because here we go with a picture-filled blog post!
After the girls got ready, I ran out to meet the boys and take a few quick portraits before I switched back to the girls, who obviously are the most important at any wedding =)
Then, it was back to the girls to take a few more quick getting ready photos and I came across Misty practicing her vows.
Yep, it’s going to be one of THOSE weddings – YESSSS!!!!! We took some fun formal photos with each of the bridesmaids besides the traditional ones.
And then I started a few portraits of just Misty:
Then it was time for the wedding ceremony to begin! Misty and Jonathan had a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the shade of the trees around the gardens…
Wedding Tug of War!
Less blogging, more portraits of beautiful people!
I love Jonathan’s literal ball and chain that he had on his leg as he made his entrance to the wedding reception =)

I think the wedding guests were trying their best to catch up to the awesomeness of the wedding party =)

The “back side” of the wedding cake
And then the party really got started!
Love the gag garter belt… wait, was Misty really wearing those???
But Jonathan found the real thing eventually
…and attached the garter belt to a football for his toss to the boys!
More dancing, and things got crazy when the father of the bride joined in the circle!
A few more night portraits of the bride and groom to spell the wedding date with sparklers and a sparkler portrait of the bride and groom!
Why sparklers, for the sparkler exit!
Congratulations Misty and Jonathan! Thank you for allowing me to take part in your special day and to have a ton of fun down in Fort Valley, Georgia at Tryphena’s Garden!
