You'll never believe what brought these two together... Volleyball.
Lara and Brent are Stevenson Universities all-star NCAA championship volleyball team coaches. But we met them/know them because Patrick and Lara went to prom when they were cute little high schoolers.
When Lara and Brent asked us to be their wedding photographers, we were elated!
Lara and Brent had one of Aprils most beautiful Piney Branch Country club weddings! The weather was incredible and the sunshine was perfect!
There are some beautiful and sentimental accents that were incorporated into this day. Lara's brother passed away years ago but he was remembered on that day by a blue butterfly pin that was pin under the hem of her dress. Lara wore her moms veil, the same veil that her mom wore 48 years ago on her wedding day. Lastly, the dessert bar had a large assortment of dessert, many of which had the homemade recipe cards alongside them. The recipes were from Aunts, Moms, Grandmoms and more. I even grabbed some myself at the end of the night... some of those desserts were just SO good.
Brent and Lara said I do under the beautiful pavilion that looked out onto the green and danced the night away with family and friends in the window filled room at Piney Branch Golf Course.
It's an incredible thing to witness when you see friends become one and and in that moment you just smile because you know exactly what it feels like to dance all night with the one you love.
Congrats Lara and Brent! Can't wait to see you when you return from your Honeymoon!
PS... I was almost crying watching Mr. Rick see Lara for the first time. It was just so special!
