I didn’t think I would get the chance to introduce Madison and Nathan on here, or share their story. Four days before their Greenville, March 21 wedding they made the heartbreaking decision to cancel. There were so many changing details and coronavirus was sweeping the southeast. They got married anyways, but there were so many moments left to be experienced. Everything shut down and the hope of any type of wedding celebration faded quickly. We waited, we stayed home. After a matter of time, life started opening back up and small events started happening. Hope rose, ideas started. After a few phone calls from and a visit to The Bibb Mill, they planned their Georgia wedding in less than four short weeks. It surpassed so many wedding dreams! I’m just so happy they have these special moments that every couple deserves to start their marriage with. When wedding dreams come true, that truly makes my dreams come true.
These high school sweethearts have grown up together and now they get to grow old together. They’ve overcome high school, long distance, college, and wedding planning twice. They will meet a lot in their marriage together, but I see such a strong support system in their friends and family.
When I arrived at The Bibb Mill, Madison was getting ready and staying very calm. It felt surreal for everyone to be in the moments that we were sure they were not going to have. I think the loss of their March wedding allowed them to experience each moment on an even deeper level. One of my favorite moments of their day was their first look. Nathan and Madison were so excited to be together and shared raw emotion with us as they read their notes to each other. My next favorite was when Madison’s bridesmaids came outside for pictures! They all laughed and were so excited to see Madison and Nathan. I could write a novel on my favorite moments of their day, but I’ll leave the rest for you to see in the following images.
