Anna + Sam’s Debarge Winery Overlook Wedding in Lafayette, Georgia by Nashville Wedding Photographer Cassie Lopez Photography
I feel so, so, so lucky to have been part of this wedding. I met Anna and Sam when I was in graduate school, where Anna studied sculpture. I knew Anna as an incredibly talented Southern artist (see some of her work here!), and Sam as her boyfriend, always smiling and always down to talk to me about Neil Young. When I saw they were engaged on ~social media~ I daydreamed about shooting their wedding, and I couldn’t believe it when they actually asked me to.
The whole wedding was full of personal touches– Anna wore her grandmother’s hat and bracelet, Sam created table runners and flower arrangements, and Anna’s family helped her build a boat float that her nephew ring bearers drove down the aisle. Everything was so otherworldly, beautiful and fun.
