Perfect Afternoon Wedding in Clermont, Georgia

Saturday was an awesome day, because it was the day that Jessica and Jayson became wife and man.  You may remember them from their engagement portrait session a couple of months ago in Gainesville.  Now it’s official, and the two of them are off enjoying a well deserved honeymoon.

Hopefully, as we all enjoy these photos, their friends and family are enjoying a rest as well, because this wedding was truly a community effort.  Every member of both their families contributed something, as well as many family friends and their church groups.  And let me be the first to tell you, they did an amazing job (and you know I’ve been to a couple of weddings this year).

The wedding was held on Jayson’s parents’ farm in beautiful Clermont, Georgia.  The day was as perfect as a north Georgia fall day could be, with sparkling blue skies and perfect temps.

Jessica and Jayson asked for, and received from their guests, an unplugged wedding, after being inspired by a post on Offbeat Bride a few months back.  It was really nice to see the guests watching and enjoying the special ceremony that Jessica and Jayson had prepared to celebrate their union.  And it was definitely one to remember….  It started with a beautiful bride with the sun at her back walking toward a groom with a smile so bright it nearly blinded the sun…

After the ceremony, we quickly grabbed some sunset portraits and then the party was on!

There was the world’s most awesome grand wedding exit with silly string!!  Jessica and Jayson wisely changed out of their wedding clothes into their work uniforms before leaving.  They’re… wait for it…

And, with a kiss and a wave, it was time for them to begin their new life together as man and wife… or is it wife and man… either way, they lived happily ever after.
