The Ritz Carlton in Lake Oconee is absolutely breathtaking! I had the honor of helping with MaryStuart and Chris on their wedding there, and I was so excited to spend a few days on this beautiful property. MaryStuart’s family is SUPER special to me, as I did their other daughter’s wedding (Melissa) over 6 years ago. Crazy how time flies! The most special part for me is getting to hang out with MaryStuart’s parents and siblings again, as they are simply wonderful human beings inside and out. I just wish they had 10 more daughters! 🙂
The weather was perfect for their outdoor ceremony that overlooked the lake. Right before MaryStuart walked down the hill with her parents, her friend sang ‘What a Beautiful Name’ by Hillsong. It was the perfect moment of reflection for MaryStuart and Chris, as they wanted to honor Jesus Christ first in their marriage. Such an honor to work with Anna Shackleford and her husband. So happy that MaryStuart and Chris had them there to capture every moment.
