I am so lucky. I have grown up in a very tight knit family. My two first cousins have always felt more like brothers. My eldest cousin, Andy, and I were super close–two peas in a pod. We hated his little brother Austin. He was always trying to get us to let him play with us, telling on us (for stuff we didn’t do, of course), and just generally making our young lives miserable. I even had a scrapbook page dedicated to him with some devil horns drawn on his photo. As we grew a little older, I began to appreciate him more, and as adults (though we don’t often get to see each other and text probably less than we should), when we are together all the distance fades away–it’s a wonderful thing! The past few years, I have slowly been introduced to Aubree Woodard, his girlfriend. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know her, and I’m extra excited to have been able to be the first to welcome her to the family when this happened on October 14th…

This is more of a non-traditional wedding dress, and was so much fun to photograph! These two had such amazing chemistry in front of the camera — like a little mermaid with her very own Prince Eric. It just so happened that there was an abandoned picnic table in this area with a really fun umbrella so we, of course, had to make use of it.

Along with the more standard sizes, the Gilded Gown carries an extensive selection of plus sized wedding dresses–the best in the area. Our model, Jordan, works there when she isn’t moonlighting as a modeling pro. The makeup and hair done by Southern Belle Beauty is one of the prettiest soft looks I’ve seen.
