Georgia + Philip || Gainesville, VA

The last few months have been a whirlwind of busyness for us at Dreamlite, but we’re proud to interrupt our blog hiatus to share with you what we did this past weekend. We ventured all the way to Virginia to document Georgia + Philip’s wedding celebration, and we are incredibly excited to share with you some of our favorite frames from their big day.

From the custom dress hanger gifts to the many boxes of Chic-Fil-A, we saw this couples’ love of life (and people) evident all throughout the day. Yet, the sweetest things were those less obvious. In the short time we spent with the couple + their bridal party, we realized how authentically real their relationships were. Their sense of community + support were both subtle and loud, both Biblical and human. One of our favorite moments of the day happened right before their ceremony. Taking a more traditional approach, Georgie and Phil insisted on not seeing each other until the actual ceremony. However, they still wanted to pray together. We found a good spot for them to escape from the crowds, gave them some space, and let them pray it out. Beautiful.

For now, we’ve posted a handful of our favorite images from Sunday’s wedding. Be sure to check out our facebook page for more photos from their day. If you haven’t done so, “like” our page!! Congratulations once again to our newlyweds, Georgia and Philip.

Specials thanks to the wedding coordinator, Sokha, for carefully creating their wedding itinerary. She allotted extra “cushion” time throughout the days’ schedule, all of which we were grateful to have had. The day seriously wouldn’t have been as smooth if it weren’t for your coordinating expertise.


Colin + Ann (Part 2)

Here’s what you all have been waiting for… Colin and Ann’s wedding in photos, part two!

As mentioned in previous posts (see here ), Colin and Ann’s ceremony took place at Summit Adventure. The timing for the ceremony was just perfect– the late afternoon sun was descending right behind the bride & groom, making for an amazing backlight and some exciting images.

My favorite image from this set probably has to be the moment they finished walking out of the ceremony area, towards the back, and embrace for the first time as husband and wife. Although it lasted a split second, it’s one of those joyous + simplistic moments that really stick in a photographers mind. Afterwards, we escaped to Willow Creek, a natural creek/local swimming hole that sources it’s water from the Sierra Nevadas. We even had time to do some fun, old-timey, vintage-esque photos on a fallen log– one of my personal faves from the day. MUCH credit is due to the bride and groom for having excellent taste in wedding attire.

The celebration continued at the community center of Coarsegold, a historic and quiet little town right outside of Bass Lake. Music was provided by The Trespassers, a tremendously talented band very well known in these parts of California. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing them play live a few times, and their multifaceted talent encompasses the genres of rock/folk/blue grass/gypsy jazz/poetic and more, and they are 100% worth listening to.

Colin + Ann (Part 1)

Let’s start off with some fun facts I (Jon) thought about while putting together this blogpost:

1) About the Ceremony Location: Summit Adventure is a solid & unique outdoor wilderness ministry located in Bass Lake, CA. Participants and staff venture out into the backcountry for multi-day, life-transforming trips that include backpacking, rock climbing, rappelling, wilderness education and Jesus. International course destinations have included Ecuador, Mexico and Jerusalem.

2) I’ve only been in the women’s bathroom at Summit’s Base Camp three times in my life:
a. end-of-season cleaning in the summer of ’06
b. dying my hair RED in the summer of ’07
c. Ann & Colin’s wedding, March of ’10

3) All five groomsmen had THE EXACT SAME shoe size (and both sides of the bridal party wore TOMS shoes)

4) Don’t forget to check out the very last picture… The image screams “music album cover”, and for the record, it wasn’t my idea to pick up random tools & ice picks to pose, these guys were just that creative.
