For a girl who never thought she'd get married, her love and connection she has with Corey changed her mind. Corey always knew he wanted to be a married man, to have a beautiful family to be a part of...to call his own. He wanted to someone to experience life with, sharing all facets of it as one. The moment he met Kala, he knew it would be her. It was a perfect fall day. Kala and her bridesmaids spent the morning into early afternoon in the gorgeous bridal suite getting glammed up for the special day. Kala and Corey's wedding was held November 7, 2015 at Quails Landing, a beautiful venue nestled in the woods of Ashburn, Georgia.
Kala shared a quiet moment with her father before she and Corey met for the first time on that day.
Kala and Corey opted to see one another before the wedding ceremony. They shared an intimate moment on the dock...it was a precious thing to see.
Corey was in awe of his beautiful bride.
Quails Landing was surrounded by acres of beautiful woods which made for a cozy wedding atmosphere.
They shared laughs together the entire day. This is one of the best elements of being in love...
After photographing Kala and Corey in the pines, they headed to spend time with the ones who would be standing beside them at the ceremony...The friends and family that have been standing by them throughout their journey.
Kala and Corey were surrounded by many great friends who adore them equally.
This is what happens when you say "1...2...3...STRIKE A POSE!"
These two were in each others arms every spare second they could find...
Sweet, sweet prayers with the bride seconds before the wedding ceremony began.
An enchanting spot to profess their love and speak their vows in front of those that love them most...
There aren't many things as sweet as a father who is happy and proud to give his daughter away...
At the start of the ceremony, Kala's father played the guitar while a bridesmaid sang a beautiful song.
The reception was beautifully decorated! Kala and Corey had a photo booth (that printed out photos on the spot!) set up for guests to enjoy throughout the evening. SUCH a cool idea!!!
After the ceremony, the newlyweds greeted their guests before making their way to the reception.
So much love and joy surrounded these two beautiful people!
Before cutting their cake, toasts were given to celebrate the love for Kala and Corey.
The groom's darling mother shared laughs with the room after her speech. ;) It was a memorable moment for sure!
Seconds before the first dance, the winds picked up and rain began to fall. Kala's original idea was to dance under a nicely decorated pavilion. Given their always sunny dispositions and the romance of the moment, Kala and Corey chose to dance together in the rain, later being their favorite moment of their wedding day.
It was truly one of the most romantic first dances I've seen...
How in love they are...
And then it was time to P-A-R-T-A-Y!!! No one minded the flooding rain that was falling around the pavilion as they danced the night away...
Many thanks to the team they assembled to ensure the day would be perfect...
