Lisa & Sean

Remember this awesome couple’s outdoor engagement session? Well, Lisa and Sean were married on a perfect April afternoon in Villa Rica! Their backyard wedding ceremony and reception venue was especially meaningful because the property belonged to Lisa’s grandparents. Everything was absolutely beautiful and their big day was positively perfect – so you can understand why it was so hard to narrow down favorites to share their wedding day story!

Lisa and her girls got ready in her Mamaw’s Villa Rica home. Hair and make up took over the dining room and living room!

Meanwhile, Sean and his groomsmen prepared for the big day at Club Wyndham in Fairfield Plantation.

I absolutely adore the sunflowers used for the wedding. Lisa’s bridal bouquet, the boutonnieres, and centerpieces were all so gorgeous and the perfect pop of color throughout their wedding day! This next ring shot is one of my favorite details!

The lattice on the covered bridge leading into the property was great for displaying photos of the two of them through the years. Their little coffee takeaways were adorable and such a great gift for their guests! Such great details!

The mix matched vintage seating and farm tables were the perfect touch for their backyard wedding – and just look at that view!

Lisa put on her beautiful lace wedding dress in her Mawmaw’s living room surrounded by her mom, sisters, and friends.

Then, she had an emotional first look with her father …

and an intimate first look with her groom. I love Sean’s expression after seeing his beautiful bride for the first time! ♥

After some photos of the bride and groom with their wedding party and families, it was time for the ceremony!

The opening prayer was exceptionally special because it was given by Lisa’s Mawmaw. They weren’t sure if she was even going to be able to come outside for the ceremony that day, so this was such a blessing. ♥

After they said “I do”, Lisa and Sean requested a group shot with all of their guests – so fun!

After their beautiful wedding ceremony, they had their first dance and their parent dances. These are some of my favorite moments because there is always a great mix of beaming smiles, laughter, and happy tears. ♥

The sunflower theme continued with their amazing wedding cake and different flavored cupcakes! Love it!

Guests came from all over to celebrate with Lisa and Sean, and I think it’s safe to say that everyone had a blast!

As the sun started to go down, we snuck away for a few photos of just the two of them by the  pond and the spring blossoms.

Then it was back to the reception for the bouquet and garter toss!

I think Sean’s idea of throwing it on a football was a huge hit. I have never seen so many groomsmen fight for the garter before – and these aren’t even all of the photos!

Their wedding day was absolutely amazing and everything Lisa and Sean could hope for. Including the sparkler exit!
