Chelsea & James | Payne-Corley House Wedding Athens Atlanta GA Wedding & Engagement Photographer

A snippet from their wedding website, because it’s just too cute not to share:  “James and Chelsea met at Bolton Dining Hall during their first semester at UGA.  Their schedules didn’t usually overlap, but this particular morning James had left without his Pop Tart, and Chelsea had slept through half of her first class. To James’s surprise, the pretty young lady asked to join him at his otherwise empty table, and they shared breakfast.  The two wouldn’t see or talk to each other for a year and a half, until they literally walked into one another at the dining hall where Chelsea then worked — and the rest is history.”

It was a beautiful, sunny day in Duluth for Chelsea & James’ wedding at the Payne-Corley House.  I still remember the moment I saw Chelsea for the first time that morning…  She was absolutely glowing.  It was obvious that James felt the same way when he first saw her; Their First Look was an emotional moment that I’m pretty sure made everyone around teary-eyed.  My favorite thing about this couple is how they act when no one is even looking.  Their love for each other overflows and touches everyone around.  Thank you, Chelsea & James, for letting me capture your love for each other on such a special day.
