Josh and Annalisa’s Romanian Wedding!

A usual hot and humid June Sunday in Georgia and the threat for rain was imminent at ninety percent that whole day.  Annalisa, understandably beside discouraged over the weather after planning for over a year to have her ceremony in the beautiful gardens at Glendalough Manor!  Luckily for her, a surprising turn of events in the weather came over Tyrone and it turned out to be a beautiful, no, gorgeous sunny day.  The trade off on the heat in lieu of the rain was tolerated and well worth it.

Among my days working at Glendalough, I have witnessed a number of different cultural weddings.  I have to say, that Romanian weddings are among my favorite!  It’s ALL ABOUT THE CEREMONY!  Family and food are also at the top of the chain when it comes to importance.   We hope you enjoy these lovely pictures by Southern Portrait and Video of Josh and Annalisa’s beautiful Romanian wedding at Glendalough!

Capturing The Moment!

As we enter into the month of Love, I can’t help but to channel my inner romantic side!  When I used to run weddings, my favorite part of the entire day was the ceremony.  I just love seeing couples start their life together and how their love brings everyone together.  Being truly in love with someone has a different meaning for each person and it is usually quite difficult to put into words how much you love your partner!  The reason we tell our couples that photography can be one of the single most important parts of your wedding day is because unlike an inability to express your love with just a few words, photography can capture your love in the moment.  That look, that smile, that moment that a photographer can capture when you least expect it can be a very telling part of your love story.

I hope you enjoy these stunning and heartfelt images as much as I do!

Not only are images of the bride and groom captured but moments with the family can be just as moving.  In a traditional Indian wedding, it is very emotional when the daughter gets married because that day, she is no longer considered part of their family the way she used to be; she is married now and gives her whole self to her groom and his family.

Looking into each other’s eyes can be the most romantic part of a ceremony!
