The first wedding of fall wedding season is going down as one of my favorites! Lissette & Antoine are literally the sweetest couple and their day was elegant and easy going, just like them! It was the perfect day with perfect weather, the sweetest family, and the closest of friends. The Partridge Inn could not have been more of a perfect venue for these two to say yes to forever. The large porches are some of my favorites in Augusta for sure and that, combined with so many white walls and a neutral color palette made for a beautiful wedding. When I first met these two, I was so struck by their easy going vibe and the way they interacted together! Their engagement session still has me swooning. Their wedding day is just the same, so much sweetness between them and I could have photographed them all day!!
Every ceremony is special, and I'm always excited to see what each couple will do differently. Lissette & Antoine had a Latin traditional Lasso ceremony, complete with a figure eight greenery lasso tied around them as they said their vows. The figure eight shape represents infinite love and their unity. They also had the traditional coin ceremony, referred to as Las Arras, with 13 coins in an ornate box, given from the groom to the bride as a symbol of love and provision. The bride receives the coins and they both promise to love and sacrifice for each other. It also means that as a couple, you are now a sign of God's love to the world, especially those around you. I absolutely love the meaning behind this so I just had to share.
Not only were these two sentimental, but their playlist for the special dances included "Unforgettable" by Nat King Cole and "The Way You Look Tonight" by Frank Sinatra, topped off with some 90's R&B remixes, I was in heaven! Since I always dance as I shoot at receptions, this had me super happy! What a treat to photograph such an amazing time! It's ridiculously hard to choose favorite images but I hope you guys enjoy it! I love what I do and love the relationships that come out of doing what I do! Thankful= me.
Lissette & Antoine, thank you so much for having me! I enjoyed every moment and I know you guys will have a very happy life together!
