Alex & Alex hosted their winter wedding at the Nelson-Tift Building in downtown Albany, Georgia. They said their I-do's among their closest friends and family, followed by a romantic evening to remember.
Witnessing Alex turn around to see his teary-eyed bride was such a special moment...
Alex found her bridal gown at Wedding Angels Bridal Boutique in Roswell, Georgia.
Their ceremony began at 5 o'clock in the evening, just as the sun began to set.
While guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, the new Mr. & Mrs. snuck away for a few playful portraits.
This glass enclosed nook in the front of the venue was our absolute favorite!
The reception at the Nelson-Tift was romantically decorated with a hint of vintage elegance throughout.
To Alex and Alex, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for welcoming me and Chase into your lives to capture your special day. We couldn't be more happy for the two of you and wish you a lifetime of joy and laughter!

Karmen and Dylan met through mutual friends in January of 2016 at a Zaxby's. Fried chicken, sweet tea and each other's company. The rest was history.
They decided to have their engagement portraits shot at Tarva Plantation in Dougherty County Georgia. A beautiful place that holds many dear memories for Dylan. Tarva Plantation is where Dylan's father worked for more than twenty years. Dylan and his dad hoped to one day farm together, they'd talked about it for years. When his father passed away just a month before he turned 18, Dylan made the decision to continue farming as a way of keeping their dream live and his connection to his dad strong.
"This farm is a special place to me. Knowing how far I have come in my life, knowing I could take Karmen back there for our engagement pictures. To have those pictures forever reminding me of memories I had with my father, was special." -Dylan
The way these two adore each other...
In June of 2016, Karmen's mother passed away suddenly. It was her 38th birthday. This tragic loss bonded Karmen and Dylan in a deeper way than either of them imagined possible. With each other as their support system, they've grown stronger as individuals and as a beautiful young couple.
It isn't hard to see the amount of love between them...
Their Saturday morning rituals involve snuggles and making breakfast together. A nursing student, Karmen spends the weekends studying and Dylan does anything but sit still... ;)
During the harvest season, Dylan leaves before daylight and isn't home until dark. Karmen loves that she'll be a farmer's wife in a few short months...
Dylan and Karmen are planning their wedding for August 18th of this year.
Karmen, you are going to be such a stunning bride!!!
To Dylan and Karmen, thank you so much for welcoming me into your life to capture these sweet memories! And thank you for sharing your amazing story with us. Chase and I are looking forward to your wedding day. :)
