Kate and Kyle’s love goes back all the way to 8th grade. These two have known each other since 4th grade, but their romance started a young love in middle school! Kate says her favorite part of the day was walking down the aisle in the church it all started at (they went to the church’s school together), and being married by the Pastor who’s had such a big influence on their lives over all the years.

Lauren and Drew had friends from early childhood to ones they met on a beach in another country attend their wedding day. They never meet a stranger, and are quick to welcome people into their life party with open arms. There is no weird get to know you phase—these two are easy to talk to. They met on the first day of school at UGA, and they love their Dawgs (their friends and family sent them off with the UGA mantra appropriately).

With fall wedding and senior season in full swing, it's easy to get to December, look back and wonder where this part of the year went!  It's also easy to skid into the holiday season completely exhausted, friend-less, unhealthy, and burnt out.  Been there, done that, and it's the worst.  I'm determined for burn out and exhaustion not to be my story, and I've found a few things that help me manage this time of year.

This pretty lady not only has THE most beautiful blue eyes, but she is outgoing, easy to talk to, happy, and determined.  You'll notice a sweet fella joined her for her session--that's Clyde.  Carson has ridden horses since the third grade, and Clyde is her horse she learned on!  (I know, cue the tears.)
