If you are looking for a simple yet chic barn wedding then look no further. Julia + Patrick had their dream wedding at the beautiful Walnut Hill Farm in Dalton, GA.

Julia and my younger sister have been friends their entire lives so it was quite an honor when she asked us to photograph her wedding. Julia is a graduate of UCF and was part of their cheer program when she began tryouts for USA Cheer and met Patrick. They were instantly drawn towards each other and have been together ever since.

Just before the ceremony, Julia and Patrick touched hands around a door to calm their excited nerves and share a few sweet words before they met each other again at the altar. It was an emotional ceremony for everyone when they had their first kiss as man and wife and became The Millers. Being the hardcore cheerleaders they are, it was only natural to perform a few lifts and flips with their fellow cheerleaders after the ceremony.

The reception was beautiful. The ceiling was draped with swag and the room was splashed with soft pink lighting. The tables were dressed with hydrangeas and fairy lights creating a simple yet intimate setting. Julia, who was raised as a Florida Gator fan, surprised everyone including Patrick with a groom cake themed to his college, University of Alabama. The photo booth was a hit creating fun, everlasting memories for all of the guests. A wish lantern send off signaled the end of the night creating a romantic ending to an amazing day. From the country-style dinner, outdoor fire pit and wish-lanterns to end the night, it was a picture perfect day for everyone.

The reception was over but the celebrating was not. The barn had a living space that sleeps 15 people so everyone headed upstairs to continue the fun. Scott and I decided to take advantage of the countryside and the absence of light pollution to do some nighttime photography and took a 2:00am walk around the property. The fire flies lighting the trees were absolutely amazing! This was one of our favorite photos from our walk and we couldn't resist making it a special edit for Julia + Patrick.
