An Elegant Southern Wedding at Highgrove Farm | Valdosta, Georgia

June 18, 2020

Our first wedding of the 2020 season was an elegant southern wedding in Valdosta, Georgia.  The minute we turned onto Highgrove Farm‘s property, we knew this was going to be a special day.  Ryan and Bonnie are absolutely beautiful people inside and out and are truly perfect for each other.  We began our day like we do every wedding, in the bridal suite checking on the bride.  She was surrounded by her best friends sipping mimosas getting their hair and make up done.  There was lots of laughter and it set the tone for the day.  Ryan and his groomsmen were all sitting on the porch of the stable house relaxed and enjoying each other.

As all the wedding festivities got under way, we loved getting to do three different first looks – her bridesmaids, father, and, of course, the groom.  Ryan’s first words were “Oh my, you look beautiful.”  (We were all thinking the same thing because her dress and veil were amazing!)  It was a very precious moment that we loved getting to be a part of and capture!  As we approached the ceremony time, the bridesmaids, wearing variations of pink and blush Show Me Your Mumu dresses, were MVPs for constantly dodging ant hills, swatting at gnats, and trying not to sweat all while getting bugs out of Bonnie’s dress.  It is South Georgia in June :).

As the breeze rolled in, so did all of Bonnie & Ryan’s friends and family.  The ceremony was standing room only and no one was going to miss the opportunity to celebrate these two.  They said their vows, had a epic first kiss, and became officially Mr. & Mrs. Teifer!  For the bride and groom portraits, we were blessed with one of the most beautiful golden hours we have ever seen.  The couple danced the night away, ate delicious food and cake and sent the newlyweds to their honeymoon in style.  (A flower petal exit just might be our new favorite!)

To Mr. & Mrs. Teifer, we wish you the absolute best and are so honored and thankful that we could capture your wedding.  Have an amazing Honeymoon!
