This week’s featured wedding has a little bit of a different story and definitely all of the nostalgic feels. Before I share the details of Caroline and Eric’s beautiful wedding day, I want to share the connection I have to this amazing couple.
I know Eric from the good ole high school days, where he was a football player and I was a cheerleader. If you know much about high school football traditions, you may be familiar with decorating lockers for each player, and I was the one who decorated Eric’s locker each week before he played under the Friday Night Lights (I’ve include a couple of great throwback photos as well at the end of the blog for you to enjoy!) As you can imagine, I was so flattered when Eric and Caroline reached out to me to photograph their wedding.
Caroline and Eric had so much thought and meaning behind every detail of their wedding. Caroline’s grandmother, who sadly passed away before the wedding, was a lover of golf, and both Caroline and Eric used to attend the Master’s with her tickets. It only seemed right to host their wedding day on the same weekend as the Master’s as tribute, with a small and subtle golf theme throughout.
We were able to capture all of the outdoor couple and wedding party ahead of the ceremony. (Pro tip – Discuss photo locations, outdoors or in the church ahead of time. This way you can make recommendations. Eric and Caroline wanted garden photos, given the timeline, I knew we needed to have those done before the ceremony because the sun would have already been setting before we go back to the reception!)
The reception took place at the Country Club of the South, which is known of it’s stunning floor to ceiling windows and of course, beautiful golf course!
Again, it was such an honor to be asked to photograph the wedding of Eric and Caroline. I enjoyed a quick trip down memory lane and look forward to watching them create new memories as they live their happily ever after!
Here are the throwback photos I promised. Eric was number 10, and you can see the number 10 on my cheek!
