Bonnie & Ryan’s Elegant Southern Wedding by J & C Creative Co.

Ryan and Bonnie are absolutely beautiful people inside and out and are truly perfect for each other. We began our day like we do every wedding, in the bridal suite checking on the bride. She was surrounded by her best friends sipping mimosas getting their hair and make up done. There was lots of laughter and it set the tone for the day. Ryan and his groomsmen were all sitting on the porch of the stable house relaxed and enjoying each other.

As all the wedding festivities got under way, we loved getting to do three different first looks – her bridesmaids, father, and, of course, the groom. Ryan’s first words were “Oh my, you look beautiful.” (We were all thinking the same thing because her dress and veil were amazing!) It was a very precious moment that we loved getting to be a part of and capture! As we approached the ceremony time, the bridesmaids, wearing variations of pink and blush Show Me Your Mumu dresses, were MVPs for constantly dodging ant hills, swatting at gnats, and trying not to sweat all while getting bugs out of Bonnie’s dress. It is South Georgia in June :).

As the breeze rolled in, so did all of Bonnie & Ryan’s friends and family. The ceremony was standing room only and no one was going to miss the opportunity to celebrate these two. They said their vows, had a epic first kiss, and became officially Mr. & Mrs. Teifer! For the bride and groom portraits, we were blessed with one of the most beautiful golden hours we have ever seen. The couple danced the night away, ate delicious food and cake and sent the newlyweds to their honeymoon in style. (A flower petal exit just might be our new favorite!) – Joe & Christian

Hi, we’re Joe & Christian Leaphart, and we love connecting genuinely with our clients and relieving all your stress so that on your wedding day, you can focus on being present in the moment and know that we are capturing them all.

Both born and raised in North Georgia, we met leading worship together. We were “just friends” for a long time and then realized…HEY, I kind of like you! We’ve been madly in love ever since. Though our wedding day was wonderful, it’s been building our marriage that has been the most rewarding. We hope you remember that your wedding is only the beginning. The best is yet to come!

We are lovers of coffee, Mexican food, good hats, and all things Disney & Marvel. When we aren’t capturing joy-filled moments for our amazing clients, we are building legos with our son, Rhodes, and making our daughter, Brighton, giggle.
