Greg and I have shot countless engagement sessions at Toccoa Falls and have always dreamed of shooting a wedding there. When Rebecca & Charlie reached out and explained their plans for an intimate ceremony nestled in the North Georgia mountains with Toccoa Falls as their backdrop we lost our minds!! After we chatted with them, got to know them a bit more and learned about their mutual love for dogs, beer and travel we knew we would get along perfectly. Charlie sums it up the best! :
“Rebecca was finishing up college and I was just starting my career when we met while working together in Charleston, South Carolina. Rebecca and I were coworkers but in different departments. There were a few younger folks our age working together at the time and it was approaching my birthday. She and another coworker decided that they were going to celebrate my birthday, even though I refused because I don’t like being center of attention. We had met before, but I would say that day is when we really hit it off and started spending more time together. The best birthday gift was her coming into my life! – (but the Oreo cake that she got for me with my name in cursive from the lady at Harris Teeter was good too) Since then we stayed another year in Charleston and have now been living in Charlotte for the past 7 years. Our dog Brownie found us 4 years ago. He was a stray wandering around our neighborhood that we convinced to come inside after lots of treats and has been living the high life ever since! We also love to travel and go someone international every year. We flip flop who gets to pick every year and this year for our honeymoon we decided on a surprise vacation! We won’t know where we’re going until we get to the airport.”
Their September Toccoa Falls wedding, started at a quaint cabin in the woods where they prepped for the big day. We then ventured to Panther Creek where they shared a private first look. Their doggo, Brownie, loved his moms dress so much he started rolling around in it! We then made our way to Toccoa Falls where the ceremony was set to take place. After an absolutely stunning ceremony we were able to steal the newly weds away for some waterfall newlywed portrait magic! Rebecca and Charlie were down to climb down to the water and we are SO happy they were, as it made for some of our favorite shots of the day. We could have spent hours photographing them at the falls, but we made our way to their reception at The Barn at Lake Rabun to begin the reception shenanigans. The dance floor and photo booth were always full which is how you know it was a good night! Rebecca & Charlie’s wedding wrapped up perfectly with a sparkler send off lined with all of their closest friends and family.
A HUGE congrats to our friends Rebecca, Charlie, and Brownie!! We are so happy for you and can’t wait to see what your future holds. Thank you for allowing us to be apart of your lovely day!
