A Rustic + Classic Loblolly Rise Wedding | South Georgia
This Loblolly Rise wedding in Thomasville, Georgia was the perfect fall day! Yomi + Oscar have been waiting years for this day, and they are FINALLY Mr. and Mrs. Tejada! They were surrounded by so many family + friends that came from all over to celebrate with them. I loved getting to meet the special people in their lives! They made us feel so comfortable and welcome.
Their day was cozy, romantic, and absolutely beautiful! It was important to Yomi and Oscar that their Georgia wedding was filled with special elements that reflect their Spanish culture. Oscar’s sister didn’t just serve as the sister-of-the-groom, she was also the translator during the ceremony. As their photographer, I felt so lucky to witness the wonderful traditions that hold so much meaning to these two and their Hispanic culture.
Loblolly Rise is such a gorgeous venue- and I especially love it this time of year because of the beautiful fall foliage! It was the perfect warm + cozy venue for their sweet wedding.
Yomi called me a couple of days before the wedding and said Oscar decided he wanted to have a first look! I was ecstatic!
I love first looks for so many reasons (blog post coming soon on that!) We were able to get most of the portraits done before the ceremony even started, and they shared some sweet time together before the hustle + bustle of the party started! Oscar was in awe when he saw Yomi (of course, she’s absolutely gorgeous!) and he told me he was so glad he decided he wanted to go with a first look! 😊
Oscar’s friend, Ethan, owns a gorgeous classic car that he brought for them to have portraits with! Oscar loves this car and to see the excitement in his eyes when he was telling me about it during their engagement session, I knew it was special + we were going to get amazing portraits. These two are STUNNING and so timeless! Definitely one of my favorite parts of their day. What a unique and special touch!
Yomi, you were a flawless bride!
I had so much fun celebrating the two of you! Thank you for allowing me to share this day with you, and here’s to FOREVER as Mr. and Mrs. Tejada! Congratulations, Yomi + Oscar!
A huge thank you to the wonderful vendor team!
