Destination Wedding Photographers | Ben & Michelle’s Georgia Wedding


All the way back in October, a long long time ago, this lovely couple became husband and wife.  Ben & Michelle said their vows in front of family and friends on a chilly Sunday morning in Lawrenceville, GA.  550 Trackside was the perfect venue for the celebration, bringing a warm rustic charm to the event.  We had an incredible time working with these two.  We always seem to get the most laid back fun couples to work with and Ben and Michelle are no exception.  When we showed up everyone was cool and calm, laughing and enjoying the moments leading up to the ceremony.  Ben and Michelle had a touching first look where they had some private time to talk and love before the ceremony began.  A trolley carried us and the wedding party to various parts of town so that we could take pictures.   The ceremony was moving as the pastor shared personal stories about Ben & Michelle and sprinkled in bits of humor that clearly demonstrated the amazing friendship and love between Ben and Michelle.  The reception was jumping from the minute the DJ played the first song and my favorite part was where Ben & Michelle toasted with glasses of milk as they cut their cake.  It was truly a magical day for everyone involved.

Ben and Michelle, thank you so much for allowing us into your lives and letting us capture such beautiful memories for you guys.  You are truly wonderful people and we know you will experience a lifetime of joy in eachother’s arms.  I know your honeymoon in Boston was the perfect way to start your journey together as husband and wife.

We hope you enjoy these favorites from the wedding day.  Be sure to catch the slideshow at the end.  Its chock full of other goodies.

In love,

Mel & Brad

I love that Michelle’s bouquet was wrapped with a bit of fabric from her mother’s wedding dress.  Such a touching way to celebrate her parent’s marriage.

I love this shot of Ben’s mother pinning his boutonniere on.  She was so proud of him all day.
