Shelby and Ariel’s Wedding
Ballantyne Country Club

Drumroll please…..presenting the LAST wedding of 2017!!!  We hit our 50 wedding goal for the year and it is always a proud day when every single OSS bride from the previous year’s wedding has been signed, sealed, delivered AND blogged!

Shelby and Ariel’s December 30, 2017 wedding was such a sweet ending to a fantastic year at Old South.  There is such a tenderness to their relationship that shines through in the images below at their gorgeous Ballantyne Country Club wedding. Alisha and Alyssa told their story in such a sweet, authentic way.

Shelby’s sweet mom, Debby, first reached out to the studio earlier in 2017.  She was kind enough to do some of the “information gathering” for Shelby and I felt an immediate connection to this family.  I’m a mom of 2 teenage girls and I’d ask all the same questions Debby did.  You just can’t help it.  You want to be sure the person you entrust with photographing such an important day for your daughter will understand what a treasure it is to the bride AND everyone that loves her too.

As always, Amanda’s team at the Ballantyne Country Club executed a picture perfect wedding day.  These people truly go above and beyond to make sure every person feels welcomed, cared for and attended to on wedding days.  From getting the couple a quick bite to each right after the ceremony, to checking in with them periodically to see if they need drinks and serving phenomenal meals to guests, we always know our brides are in the best hands at this venue.

So, enjoy a peek into the best day of Shelby and Ariel’s lives.  It was full of heartfelt smiles, sweet hugs and so much love.  We can’t wait to see where life takes them next!
