Waterfront Nautical Country Club Wedding

In a stunning waterfront fete (mere steps away from where their love began), these third generation sailors became life-long first mates. Between their Australian Shepherd acting as flower girl, to gifting guests jars of moonshine pickles, to a vintage getaway car, every detail captured by Scobey Photography was meaningful, and it’s all right here!

From Sara D Harper For Scobey Photography… Camden and Gavin’s families crossed paths over 30 years ago. They continued to see each other throughout their childhood at various sailing competitions. Little did they know, a courtship would blossom in the summer of 2008 and continue to grow in the coming years.

From the beautiful Bride… Little did our parents know that their meeting over 30 years ago would eventually spark a romance between Gavin and I. Throughout the years we had brief encounters at sailing events as we both traveled around the southeast to compete and continue the family tradition of racing sailboats. Not until memorial weekend 2008 did something change…a slightly older, very funny sailor caught my attention…and it was apparent I had clearly caught his as well. A few spins on the dance floor later, we migrated to a dock under the moonlight and stayed up laughing and talking until 2 am. The weekend closed with Gavin asking if I’d come back to Atlanta in a few weeks to sail with him. Unforeseen to me, 6 years later I’d get to marry the man who had become by best friend.

After the engagement we started discussing the type of wedding we wanted. It was clear our sailing heritage had to play into the theme as not only were we both third generation sailors but it was what brought us together. We then started to plan a rustic nautical-infused outdoor wedding just steps from the dock where it all began. Immediately we knew there was no other option than to say I do waterfront at the Atlanta Yacht Club in front of Gavin’s parent’s cabin.

From the very beginning I knew I wanted a romantic look using neutrals, navy, and burlap. But what was most important was that our wedding day truly represented Gavin and I as a couple and gave us a chance to share our love story. Throughout the entire weekend we included personal touches to truly make the occasion memorable. Between wearing my grandmother’s vintage watch, our Australian Shepherd rescue, Coco, as our flower girl, and gifting the guests a jar of our family’s moonshine pickles. I was most touched by my father driving me to the ceremony site in his restored 1952 MG TD.

After reading personal letters to each other, we exchanged traditional vows, shed a few tears, and shared a first kiss as husband and wife. Before joining friends and family at the reception to enjoy delicious southern cuisine and dancing late into the night, we shared our favorite moment as just the two of us on the dock amongst the setting sun.

The whole day was truly indescribably perfect, from getting ready with my mother and closest friends to dancing the night away with my husband. Our guests are still talking about what a beautiful and fun weekend we shared. To Gavin and I, it was “our” day, the best day of our lives, and the dream wedding we never could have imagined.

Romantic Lakeside Anniversary Session

It isn’t the flowers (or even the chocolate) that make today day special, it’s the love. The type of love that is  – without a doubt – worth celebrating. The type of love that radiates warmth and fills your heart with happiness. And it’s that type of love that brought this duo lakeside, bringing along blankets, a darling pup, and Gracie Blue Photography to capture every heartwarming image here!

From Gracie Blue PhotographyThis winter I had the pleasure of taking portraits of Carole and Chris for their one year anniversary. We met by a lake on a cold Sunday morning and these two wonderful people preceded to take my breath away.

On Valentine’s Day, I couldn’t help but think of Carole and Chris; the way they kept each other warm and were considerate of one another. They loved being together, holding each other, and just taking the time to appreciate what life looks like for them right now. This is what I want to celebrate about love.

Love is a team effort. She doesn’t fall because he’s there to guide her through the rocks. He’s confident because she fills him with acceptance and reassurance. At the end of the day, flowers and chocolates don’t hold a candle to the rush you feel when that special someone holds you close and confesses that your love is a gift 365 days a year.

From the beautiful Bride… The first time Zeid and I got coffee we were co-workers living in states over 3,000 miles apart, both dating other people. It should’ve been an ordinary day, an innocuous cup of coffee, but something clicked and we knew it. I called my grandmother right after and told her that I had met the most amazing man. Fast forward several months later, we began our long-distance dating adventure. After a relocation to the same state and 1000 days of dating (yes he counted) Zeid proposed.

Some little girls spend years imagining their gowns or their flowers on their “big days”, but I was the girl who knew for years what music I wanted to walk down the aisle to – “Joy” by George Winston. A friend from college ended up learning to play it on the piano for me and that made it even more special.

I think what surprised me the most about the ceremony was how natural everything felt. I was a little jittery right before, but experienced an overwhelming sense of peace and calm once my dad and I began to walk down the aisle. Everything was the way it was meant to be.

So many of our family and friends helped out to add finishing touches and make logistics easier and that was very humbling. The day played out like a fairy tale and we feel incredibly blessed and thankful.

Whimsical

From the beautiful Bride… Even though we went to the same college and had the same group of friends for years, Conley and I somehow managed not to meet until 2011. I guess fate was waiting for the right time. We got engaged in 2012 and started planning our wedding for early 2013.

We were having a hard time finding the right venue until we found Paperlily Photography. They completely understood my style and the look and feel we were going for. They lead me to Vinewood which lead me to all my other vendors as well. Conley and I fell in love with the southern, vintage, casual yet elegant charm of Vinewood. I knew that the barn would be a huge hit with Conleys side of the family since they are from Kentucky and dabble in horse racing. Since Vinewood already has so many rustic details we added more formal accents like chandeliers, mix matched china, flowers, my dress, and our cake.

I am a graphic designer and my mom is an interior designer so we knew we could use those creative skills to our advantage while planning the wedding. I took on many projects, partly to save money and partly so that we could control the outcome. We created the moss escort card board, tool boxes for floral arrangements, burlap wreaths, bunting banners, flower girl and ring bearer accessories, the dessert table and the invitations and stationary. My mom and I love birds, so we added bird details wherever we could as well. I also did the design and production of all the invitation pieces and all printed materials used throughout the wedding. It was a huge project and I am so lucky that Conley helped me assemble them and tolerated my messes! The dessert table was special because our family members provided the desserts. Conleys identical twin grandmother and aunt made Neimen Marcus bars, my Aunt made her famous banana pudding and my cousins talented wife made several things too. We are so blessed that they helped out and that we are always surrounded by so many yummy things!

Conley and I decided to go with our favorite BBQ restaurant for catering and it was one of the best decisions we made. Fox Brothers was amazing and the food was a huge hit! Without our family, friends and amazing vendors, we would never have had pulled it off! We are thankful to everyone for all their help making our special day all the more special.
