We met Stacie and Tyler over a year ago when Matthew and I were first photographing together. When they described their “Baseball Glam” vision for their engagement pictures and wedding, we were sold! Take a gander at their Georgia Tech engagement session, it was gorgeous and so them:)
Stacie and Tyler have been together for 7 years prior to their wedding day. Tyler proposed at “their” spot during Thanksgiving break at a mountain lookout in North Carolina. And he made T-shirts that said “Give me the Rock” for her and “I gave her the Rock” from him- as a play on the Nike shirt. From that day forward it was onto planning a wedding in the heart of Atlanta. They decided on marrying at the absolute stunning Cathedral of Christ the King and reception at The Trolley Barn in Old Forth Ward.
Their wedding day theme of “Best Day Ever” and their love of baseball was seen all through their wedding, as evidenced by the image I captured when I first walked into Stacie’s hotel room at The Georgian Terrace. She had a big banner and was wearing a baseball jersey with her initials on the sleeve with the navy and gold colors they chose for their wedding day. Her stunning dress really was a show stopper, having two looks in one. Her main dress for the ceremony was a beautiful fitted lace dress and the tulle skirt attached was just the added flirty note for her reception:) Once she stepped out of that room, tears started flowing and her bridesmaids let out a collective “awwww”. Stacie and her mom were trying so hard to keep their tears at bay, but you can see how much love her mom has for her daughter. When we arrived at the Cathedral, we planned for their first look to be in front of a door somewhere in the building, but ended up having to use a stone corner out front. It was perfect for their emotional first look, even with a few family members looking on, Stacie and Tyler could only focus on each other. Both of them were a bundle of nerves, but ready for their ceremony! We whisked Stacie away and prepared for the moment where she would walk down the aisle to become Tyler’s wife. Their evening ceremony was so emotional and beautiful, with the setting sun shining through the stain glass windows, casting an orange warm glow in the sanctuary. During the ceremony, another added touch was that Stacie’s younger brother actually had his first communion during service, which makes their wedding day even more special for the families. After the ceremony, we headed to the Trolley Barn where there were so many surprises for their guests: S’mores Bar, Cornhole, Popcorn station, and a pretty spectacular entrance behind a friend in a Bee Costume breaking through a banner (staying within the Georgia Tech theme:) Their friends showed their best moves on the dance floor and the night came to a wonderful end with an epic sparkler exit and getaway car (a Corvette Stingray!!)
Stacie and Tyler, we loved being a part of your wedding day and cannot wait to see what life has in store for you both! Congratulations!
-Dawn and Matthew
