In September I headed down to Georgia to photograph the wedding of Stephanie & Manuel!!  I don’t know what it is about the weather this fall… but once again the wedding day called for a pretty large chance of rain.  That chance of rain definitely made us switch things up but Stephanie & Manuel were amazing and just went with it.  If Stephanie was at all nervous that it was going to rain all day it didn’t show.  She was ready for whatever, even if that meant umbrellas all afternoon (thankfully we didn’t have to pull them out once.. even though the sky looked really ugly at one point!!).  I started off at the hotel where the ladies were getting ready and then we headed to Stephanie’s parents house where the ceremony & reception would then take place!!

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer_0004Stephanie & her ladies were so incredibly sweet & kind and so much fun to be around!!

Stephanie had yet to see herself in the mirror but when she did for the first time she started crying happy tears!!! 🙂 🙂

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer_0009Stephanie & Manuel were originally supposed to have a first look on her parents farm, but due to the rain we did everything at the hotel… so glad the rain stopped just minutes before we did this AND that there was a cute little green area out back!!

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer_0012Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer_0013These two are amazing!! Their love story is amazing!! I heard about it all and I know I could write an entire book on it, and because I’ve had a hard time picking and choosing what to write, I’ve decided to just keep it short and sweet through this whole post.  I will say that their love & their marriage are completely rooted in Jesus and it is amazing to watch the way they look at one another, and love one another!!

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer_0019Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer_0020Stephanie, you are such an amazing woman!! It has been a privilege to get to know you over the last few months.  Your heart towards others & towards life & God is inspiring!!!  You have a way with people & a laugh/smile that are contagious!!!!  I am soo soo thankful to have met you & to have photographed your wedding day!!!

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer_0021Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer_0022If you know me (especially if you’ve been in front of my camera) you know that I don’t show photos during a session.  It’s just something I don’t do, I never have.  But every once in a while I will show a photo and the photo of Stephanie on the left is just after showing her a photo and her response was utter giddiness!!!  This is one of those photos I will just forever treasure because of how excited she was!!  Stephanie you are beautiful my friend (inside & out!!)

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer_0032Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer_0033Off to the ceremony!!! Loved all the wooden signs they had leading up to the location!!!  I didn’t love the red mud road though!!!  Y’all I’m good with gravel roads… but found out that I don’t do well with red mud roads on days that have seen a lot of rain for a few days…. Just thankful I didn’t get stuck!!!  When I got back to SC on Sunday Gary said “did you go mudding?”… which stuck around and Kenzie repeated until my car was cleaned!!!!!  Give me a paved road ANY DAY!!!

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer_0044Stephanie knew she was getting her moms ring and that Manuel was doing something special to it.  But this was the first time she’d seen it and I just love her expression!!!

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer_0045There may have been a little trouble with getting Manuel’s ring on 😉
