Life is funny. You go to college (Georgia Tech to be specific), move to Arizona, and live your life. Being a good Yellow Jacket you find a local alumni event and decide to attend. And then you meet the love of your life, realizing how you’ve lived parallel lives for years and that you have so much in common. Quickly the deal is sealed. Fast forward to October 3rd and take a step into one of the best days we’ve ever gotten the chance to document. So many smiles, so much love, and so much fun. From the blue champagne to start the day, to very lucky coins in pockets, this day was filled with everything a wedding day should be. The girls got ready at their home, which is always so fun, while the boys were relaxed at a nearby hotel. The Georgia football games were on in both rooms miles apart. Then we moved to the Botanical Garden where the weather was perfect and the grounds were stunning. The ceremony was very personal and so moving, with vows handwritten in beautiful journals. Laura & Mike even included their love for wine in the moment, blending their two favorites and then sealing very special letters from their loved ones in a case of wine to be opened on their anniversary. Such a great idea! The party included some insane dancing, touching speeches from their best friends and father, and a short appearance from a very large king snake. It was a night that I am sure will never be forgotten. Congratulations Laura & Mike!!!!!!!!
