They DID IT!! After a longgg wait due to COVID rescheduling, these two are finally husband and wife! I met Shellie and Cody TWO years ago (can’t believe it’s been that long?!) at their engagement session on UGA North Campus in 2019: click here to view the blog. Their wedding was planned for the fall of 2020, but had to be rescheduled and fortunately I still had their new date available! I felt so emotionally invested in seeing these two finally get to say “I do” after all this time and it was the BEST day!
Their wedding was a photographer’s dream – it took place at 255 Milledge Hardman-Sams House (you all know this venue is like going “home” for me at this point!) on a gorgeous, sunny fall day!
PS – you may also remember them from their new puppy mini session we did last year! I loved getting to see them in front of the camera again and meet little Winston!
We began the day in the 255 Milledge bridal suite with details and getting ready – and WOW I’m so grateful for Taylor Dawn for styling these details and planning such a seamless day!
Her first look with her dad was so sweet! He was in awe of how beautiful she looked 🙂
These moments were so sweet! Just a few moments before heading to their ceremony and they privately read their letters to each other and let the emotions of the day sink in.
We headed over on the trolley to First United Methodist in downtown Athens for their ceremony!
THEY DID IT!! THEY ARE MARRIED!!!!!
I loveeee these wedding colors!! Shellie chose the perfect classic and traditional look for their wedding.
Shellie you looked absolutely stunning!!
They looked so elegant!
I loved her reception details!!
Congratulations you two!
