Miles Wedding at Hawkesdene

The wedding day and ceremony were perfect.
The weather, the company, the atmosphere, the food...everything.
There are so many pictures that I'm going to let most of them do the talking...enjoy!
 Trent, the brother of the groom and best man, escorting his Nana.
 The beautiful mothers of the bride and groom, Mrs. Sally and Ms. Bebe.

 The handsome groom!
 My handsome husband of almost 7 years!
 I love this series of photos that I was able to capture of Britt when he saw his bride walking down the pathway for the first time in her gown and veil.
Having had Britt share our special day as a groomsman and support us 6 years and 11 months ago to the day, I felt like my heart might burst finally getting to see him experience the same sort of magic on his own special day.
He has been the best lifelong friend that Brandon has, and Brandon has a lot of friends.
No one has known him longer and stood by him through both his best days and his darkest days the way that Britt has.
He has been closer than a brother to Brandon, and therefore, he has been like a brother to me, too.
I love him so very much and I am so excited for him and Andrea as they begin their lives together as husband and wife.
 This is when I thought my heart might burst...seeing a 6'7" man cry at the first sight of his 4'10.5" bride.
 Andrea was gorgeous and her dress was one of a kind. Every detail of her was breathtaking.
 They wrote personal vows to one another.
 You may have noticed a little blue custom built stool off to the side of the bridge in some of the earlier pictures. 
This stool was for Andrea to stand on to kiss her groom!
 Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Britton Miles!!
 Between the ceremony and reception there was a cocktail hour for all the guests to enjoy while the wedding party took pictures.
 I love this girl!
 Slate, another of Brandon and Britt's childhood friends who was also a groomsman in our wedding.
He is also 6'7". They make Brandon look short and he is almost 6'4".
 Is she not a doll? Lauren is so beautiful inside and out and is super photogenic!
 The introduction of the wedding party.
 He's a UGA alumni and she's a Gator fan...
 After the meal Brandon gave a toast that made me cry all over again.
I did get a video of it, but I am unsure of the quality.
Once I finished eating I put my camera down and I enjoyed myself, which means I danced the night away! 
We wish Britt and Andrea all the best and pray that God would bless their marriage and grow them together in ways they never dreamed.
We love you both!!
