Jeweled Tone Wedding Styled Shoot - Waters Mill Wedding & Events - Dahlonega, Georgia
On Sunday, February 24th, I drove up to the Georgia mountains to Waters Mill Wedding & Events to attend another styled wedding put on by Styled Shoots with R & R. This quaint little venue is situated right off the road and beside vast fields. The views stretch out with open grass or tall trees in every direction. You're in the middle of nowhere and the feeling is so intimate. After the almost two hour trip to get to the location, I was pleasantly surprised by what I found.
The venue has several buildings on the property but the main one houses a reception room that opens up to the outside. We didn't use this space as our shoot was mainly outside, but the outdoor location is beautiful. There is an arch with crawling vines that will sprout stunning white flowers in the spring, a waterfall feature, a stone bar, and several walking paths flanked with blossoming trees.
When I arrived, I was chilled to the bone with the whipping February wind, but I didn't let that stop me from having a great time! A few mishaps had the shoot running behind and our groom didn't show, but we were all able to ban together and get the show on the road! A spare groom was found and the wind calmed down long enough for me to get some great shots.
Rachel & Rheannon went all out on the planning of this Jeweled Toned Wedding! There was a stunning cake with gemstone accents, deep jeweled toned accessories, table scapes, invitations, and jewelry. They even partnered with a chocolate designer to make the cutest chocolate box! I was all a flutter running around and trying to make sure I got a bit of every piece they had. I just loved all the colors!
The models were so sweet and braved the cold like champs! Doing shoots in the off-season is hard because of the crazy weather here in Georgia but they make it through! We had two brides and two bridesmaids. With one groom missing, we made the best of it until we found a stand in towards the end of the shoot. This gentleman was the husband of one of the photographers that attended and was kind enough to step in for us to get some shots. He was a lifesaver!
I had such an amazing time on this shoot despite the cold and wind and I look forward to their book themed shoot in April!
