Barnsley Garden Wedding | Atlanta Wedding Photographer

  • Josh + Amanda

Have you ever heard the saying “Less is more”? Of course you have! Well that’s the reoccurring thought that I had during Amanda and Josh’s wedding day on Sunday. They decided to have a more intimate wedding day with only 40 guests. Their closest friends and family came to Barnsley Gardens Resort and spent the weekend with them. This place is just amazing. It’s so quaint and charming but most importantly, it’s relaxing! I introduced myself to Amanda’s dad at the beginning of the day and he told me that he had just played some tennis. Isn’t that awesome?! I’m sure my dad would have LOVED to have been so carefree on my wedding day that he could have played TENNIS!! what a dream!! I remember Amanda telling me through emails that they wanted their guest to have a great time and they also wanted to have a more laid back wedding day. They had JUST that.

After she met him, she KNEW she wanted to spend her lifetime beside him.  Colleen told John all of this in the letters that were read during their

  • Alex + Rachel

a friend’s wedding, it’s like the best of both worlds. I get to be a apart of their celebration and I also get to be behind the scenes.  I literally spent ALL day with Alex and Rachel and I loved every minute of it! You may remember these two from their engagement session.  I was a part of a worship team for Intervarsity at CNU and that’s where I met Alex.  Alex and I met sophomore year and continued to be a part of the band until we graduated. What you need to know is that this band wasn’t a typical band. We were a family. We spent literally HOURS sharing our life with one another. It was the most RANDOM group of people and I loved it. I remember hearing Alex talk about Rachel and since they
