140815_FB_110Elegant. Timeless. Southern. These words come to mind when reminiscing about Bailey & Jeff’s stunning destination wedding in Tybee Island, Georgia.

This particular wedding will always hold a special place in my heart. Not because of the details or the charming location, although every aspect of Bailey & Jeff’s wedding day was gorgeous. This wedding was special because I grew up with the lovely bride, Bailey. She is not only family, she is a friend. We grew up together in our small hometown of Star City, Indiana. We swapped stories during calculus, sang together in choir, and even participated in county pageants together. (Oh yes, we laugh and own our “has-been queen” status with pride). We shared triumphs and tears as we witnessed each other’s highs and lows and grew into the individuals we are today.

The day Bailey walked down the aisle and said, “I do” to Jeff was most definitely a high. I’ve never seen her happier.

The morning of her wedding we laughed about how life didn’t go at all like we had planned in high school. Somehow, it turned out better.

Bailey & Jeff, thank you so much for trusting Emma and me to document the day you became husband and wife! It was an honor!

In Bailey’s words…
“If you want pictures of your wedding that will make you feel you are living that day all over again, La Brisa Photography-especially Sarah and Emma- will be the best money that you spend on your entire wedding!!! Sarah worked with us to build the perfect package that fit our budget and our needs, she developed a wedding day timeline to keep us organized and on track, and provided us with the most stunning pictures that our friends and family are still talking about! Anyone can take OK pictures, but it takes someone who treats your wedding pictures like their own to get truly amazing portraits that capture so much love and laughter from one of the best days of your life. Sarah and Emma did just that. We were married in Tybee Island, GA in August, and let me tell you it was hot! Sarah and Emma didn’t let that hold them back. The heat and humidity kept them busy wiping camera lenses and having us blot our makeup, but they made our entire wedding party so relaxed during the pictures that no one noticed! They also took amazing detail pictures that have allowed us to relive all the special touches and details that were put into our big day. The last thing that I want to share is how well they blended in during our wedding and reception. They laughed and had a great time with our guests all while taking our pictures! I believe this is why our pictures truly captured the essence of our entire wedding- they were so wonderful to be around and work with that they were an extension of our family and friends! My best friend booked La Brisa right after our wedding to take her wedding pictures in the Dominican and they were also beautiful! Sarah and Emma- thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day and pictures so wonderful! We will never be able to thank you enough for all the amazing memories we will forever have!”
