A real quick glimpse at a wedding I photographed at Canoe in Atlanta, Georgia.

Dave and Heather had such an awesome wedding reception, getting married on New Year's Eve has it's benefits if you turn it into the awesome party these two did. The reception was held at the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead. The party definitely went well past midnight to give everyone a chance to ring in the new year together with family and friends. We ran the photo booth till 1 am and it was quite popular. The big bonus for Dave is that I bet he will never forget his anniversary.
We were honored to spend the day with Josh and Desiree and their friends and families on November 26, 2011 at Polo Golf and Country Club in Cumming, Georgia. DJ Tony provided the entertainment as well as video work, the video will be coming soon (it takes a lot of work and a bit of time to get that part completed). I spent the day working with the bride and groom on their wedding day photos as well as getting the Photo Booth up and running, I was blessed to have an assistant help with all of that. The photo booth went over big time with the family and guests, we also created a scrapbook for the extra copy of the photo strips. We were blessed with great weather that day which was lucky for Desiree because she had her heart set on getting out on the golf course immediately after the ceremony for some wedding portraits. This was the first wedding we have done that featured beer pong at the reception, which turns out is how the bride and groom met through some friends, so it was perfect and was definitely a big hit with the grooms friends just as we thought it would be.
I can't help remembering the excitement witnessed during Jorge & Melisa's wedding ceremony. I have been involved in a LOT of weddings, but never in my life have I seen so much excitement shared by a bride and a groom during their wedding ceremony. You know most wedding ceremonies there is very little movement, people generally stand still, now I know that is not always the case. Once Tony gets done processing the video footage, I hope to have some video to share of them jumping up and down at the altar.
Until then, I will share a few photos, one of which has been entered into a photography contest called "Perfect Pairs", which this couple is indeed a perfect pair, they are just so cute together. Their wedding was held in Buford, GA on 9-3-2011. To see any of the images larger, please visit the gallery at http://www.sherijohnsonphotography.net/Wedding/Weddings/Jorge-Melisa/18893568_h73WP4
Update: Here is the video if you would like to witness for yourself the excitement of this bride & groom.
