Vezalay Wedding | Carrie & Grant

February 23, 2021

Hello, friends! My goodness do we have a good one in store for you today!! We are so excited to share Carrie & Grant’s Vezalay Wedding Photos with you today. Long-time clients turned best friends, these two have a special place in our hearts.

“Even from the moment they were first together, we saw something special between these two.”

We met Carrie and Grant almost four and a half years ago when we were all attending UGA together. It was a chilly evening, but the perfect weather to bundle up in sweaters and cuddle for some couples photos! Within moments of meeting, we were struck by the same thing that must’ve caught Grant’s attention the first time he met Carrie, too: her absolutely joyous, infectious, and contagious laugh. Her smile and joyful personality are infectious and can brighten anyone’s day. The only thing sweeter than her smile, however, is how Grant is to her. Even from the moment they were first together, we saw something special between these two. Grant was so reassuring, comforting, and patient with Carrie. Within moments, anyone would agree with us that they were meant to be.

While 2020 has been tricky and hard enough on couples planning weddings, these two did it while being long distance. Grant moved to Denver in the middle of their engagement for work. Through it all, every time we talked to Carrie, every time there was another question of change, she handled it with grace and rolled with the punches. She was a constant reminder to us, herself, and everyone around her that everything happens for a reason, and whatever happened, however it happened, that’s the way it was supposed to happen all along. There’s so much peace that comes from that type of positive thinking. Because at the end of the day, marriage is the true gift.

“Because at the end of the day, marriage is the true gift.”

Carrie and Grant, we are so happy that we got to witness and capture your story from the beginning and to when you walked down the aisle to say, “I do.” On your wedding day, you reminded us the most important thing about a wedding is getting to marry your best friend surrounded by your amazing family and friends. You are so right about that! Even though weddings are beautiful, and a blessing, and such a fun way to celebrate your love and new life together, you two know the secret: this is just the beginning of what marriage has to offer. Your marriage is the best part.

Thank you for trusting us with capturing the most important day of your life. The BEST. DAY. EVER! Thank you for not flinching when we asked you to step on the wet lawn for husband and wife portraits at Vezalay. We’re so glad you agreed! You two look positively stunning together married. We can’t think of a better way to start 2021. We love you both and hope you love seeing yourselves (and your love) through our lens as much as we loved creating them! Cheers to the new Mr. and Mrs. Shirley!
