Sarah + Bryan | Macon, GA Wedding
Thank you to A. Thomas Photography for the beautiful photos featured here! See more on her blog at the link below.
My heart is full to overflowing with love for these two. It is unbelievably fun when friends and clients overlap and I get to serve the sweetest couples. Bryan and Sarah share a heart for loving and caring for people. They desire to know and love the people in their lives well, and always put others first. Their wedding was a beautiful Christ-honoring celebration, full of love, laughter, and community.
Bryan and Sarah both value relationships and are very intentional about pouring into the people around them, so their wedding was full of friends, family, and love. One of Sarah’s specific requests for me reflected this: At the end of the night, she knew it would be easy for her to get swept away in the hustle and bustle of her exit with Bryan, so she asked me to make sure they had a few minutes with their bridal party and family to say goodbye and give hugs before being sent out. This is another great example of making sure your wedding day reflects your priorities and what matters most to you.
A pair of college sweethearts, Bryan and Sarah said I do in one of my favorite places—Newton Chapel on Mercer’s Campus. I am obsessed with the beauty of this place, and I love any opportunity to return to my alma mater. Their reception was at a classic downtown spot—the Blacksmith Shop. This gorgeous venue was originally (you guessed it) a blacksmith shop, and hosts dozens of weddings each year. The space is so versatile, you can arrange it to suit your event. Bryan and Sarah for instance hired a barista company to make espresso drinks at the bar! (Can you tell we like coffee around here?)
Jonah’s on Johnston from Forsyth, GA, made the most delicious treats for Bryan and Sarah’s hors d'oeuvre reception—and even made fresh pralines on site! The coffee bar was by Mocha My Day, and it was insanely cool. Lattes, mochas, and cappuccinos on demand? Sign me up! Sarah and Bryan share a love of coffee, so they collected dozens of unique mugs throughout their engagement for guests to enjoy and to give as favors at the end of the night.
Sarah’s dress was worn by not only her mother, but her grandmother as well. So much sentiment and love in those pieces of lace, and a true picture of Sarah and Bryan’s deep love and care for their families.
Abigail Thomas is such a delight. You can see from the photos that she is incredibly talented, but she is also a ton of fun. Sarah and Abigail grew up in the same community, and were close family friends. Abigail is a total girl boss and was so much fun to work with! You can see more photos from Sarah and Bryan's day on Abigail's blog.
Don’t mind me, I’m just sobbing over here thinking about these two and their celebration. I am so blessed to know these two, and so grateful to have been a part of their day!
