When a day's colors, story, details and experience speak so much to your aesthetic you want to jump for joy, you know it's a good day. Our Tolemac Romance inspiration shoot could not have been more lovely! When the incredible Marilisa of Chancey Charm reached out to see if I'd like to partner with her on an inspiration shoot at a brand new venue in Georgia, Tolemac Farm in Jasper, GA, I couldn't pass up the opportunity. We had the pleasure of working alongside Kristen of Something New for I Do to connect with this venue: a stunning Southern plantation home set upon vast land featuring an orchard, a hilltop ceremony site, gorgeous gardens and more. Once I saw the mood board and learned more about our real couple, I knew this day would be special.
Gloria & Nate were married at a destination wedding 8 years ago with very few wedding photos and they hadn't had photos done since then. Getting to capture their love for this inspiration shoot was such an honor and brought tears to our eyes multiple times that day. Their kind spirits and genuine, joyful love was so encouraging and sweet. This vendor team was top notch and I so enjoyed getting to work with old friends and new! In fact, the gorgeous florals for the day were designed by Martha McIntosh Creative Consulting, who was the fabulous florist for last summer's French-inspired shoot. How fun!
I'm so thrilled to share some of my favorite images from this day and grateful to have this inspiration shoot featured on Weddings Unveiled! Thank you to Weddings Unveiled for the honor and to everyone who made this day possible. Forever grateful to be a part of a Tolemac Romance.
Finally, enjoy a video from my dear friend, Becky, with Casto Photography & Cinema from the day.
