Doniece + JT | An Evening Garden Wedding

When writing Doniece & JT's engagement session blog, I said that I knew that Doniece & JT's love story was going to be an amazing one to capture their July wedding was exactly that. Doniece & JT's wedding took place at Avon Gardens on a beautiful summer eve while being surrounded by their loving friends & family as they said their "I Do's." The bride was absolutely stunning, the groom was dressed to the nines, and everyone was ecstatic to see their favorite couple finally become husband and wife! Every moment of the day was filled with emotion and love and it was such a joy for me to capture!

Doniece & JT are such a perfect match; they constantly make each other laugh, are just the friendliest people, and are SO selfless. They even moved to Florida to help start a new church! It's been such a pleasure getting to know them as they planned their wedding throughout this past year and I feel so honored to have been invited to tell the story of their special day!

Doniece's mom helped her into her dress and it was such a sweet mother-daughter moment!

Doniece's bridesmaids had the *best* reaction to seeing the beautiful bride in her dress for the first time! The handkerchiefs were a must because of all the happy tears that were being shed!

The venue, Avon Gardens, was absolutely STUNNING! So many colorful flowers and romantic arbors everywhere!

Doniece & JT didn't want to see each other before the ceremony, but they did share a special moment in prayer with their family before saying their vows.

And before they knew it, it was time to tie the knot! The ceremony was just beautiful. Handwritten vows, lots of happy tears and laughs, and a couple who were obviously in love.

After the excitement of the ceremony, Doniece & JT took the time set aside for their portraits as a couple to just "be." Be in love, be married, and be happy. It was such a beautiful thing to capture and I think their love for each other is so apparent in these photos. 

And then... it was time to PARTY! 

Doniece & JT's reception was one of the most fun receptions I've ever captured! Everyone was on the dance floor ALL NIGHT!

Congratulations Doniece & JT! Thank you for having me capture your special day and I wish you all of the happiness in the world!
