Jesse and Mackenzie’s have been together for a long time – they started dating in high school and stayed together through college. Being together for such a long time has helped create a solid foundation to build their marriage. Their friendship and love for each other radiates through them, making for an exciting wedding to capture through a lens.

The wedding at DeBarge Vineyard was the perfect backdrop among the rolling hills of North Georgia, setting the stage for amazing views. Just being in the vineyard gives such a unique feel wandering among the rows of grapes – it has always been one of my all-time favorite places to shoot.

Despite it being super hot, once the sun went down behind the mountains, the evening exploded with the fun of the reception – dancing, laughter, and an amazing celebration of two awesome people starting a new chapter together.

One of my favorite moments from Jesse and Mackenzie’s wedding, was the overwhelming emotion and love from Mackenzie’s father as he watched her as a bride. Capturing the raw emotions of a father that is truly proud of his daughter is something I will never forget.
