Micha & Ryan a little Southern Charm.

May 20, 2009 |

Micha and Ryan’s wedding was held at the gorgeous Terra Chula Plantation in Quitman, GA.   It was a beautiful location for the couple’s outdoor ceremony.  The wedding party got to spend the whole weekend out at the plantation relaxing and prepping for the festivities. Micha is originally from Ohio and she had lots of family come from afar to experience some GA southern charm.  Their day was filled with so much emotion…lots of tears of joy and so much love and happiness!  It was really a joy to spend such a happy day with the lovely couple and their friends and family.  Micha and Ryan were also my “big dippers”!  Every chance Ryan got he would gracefully dip and kiss Micha!  You will see….but now on to the preview.

They got ready at the hunting lodge where I got to take advantage of the unusual wildlife!1896-050909-micha-ryan-wedding

By far my wildest ring shot yet!


Micha made Ryan a scrapbook of their whole life together thus far and had a bridesmaid deliver it to Ryan as a wedding gift.  I love the personal touches as well as all the history that Micha put together from their first date to their engagement to their new house!ryan-book-1

Micha had some help from her mom and the other ladies while getting ready.


I love these shots we got inside.


Seriously Micha!  You looked gorgeous!2939-050909-micha-ryan-wedding

When I asked Micha what her colors were I loved that she didn’t really have just one!  Her flowers were all colors of roses!  Ginger Shivers, her florist, did an incredible job! 2053-050909-micha-ryan-wedding1083-050909-micha-ryan-weddinglove this one!

An emotional first dance to the song Fools Rush In was the perfect start to their reception. 0136-050909-micha-ryan-wedding2161-050909-micha-ryan-weddingThey finished off the first dance with …you guessed it a dip! Love it!

Some reception details.   I especially thought that the VSU (Valdosta State University) groom’s cake was super cool.  A friend of the bride and groom, Daniel, did a fantastic  job with it.   VSU a big part of their past and present, it’s where Micha and Ryan met and where we shot their engagement session that you can see here.


The band,Tanner’s Lane was rockin’ it and kept the dance floor full all night!0170-050909-micha-ryan-wedding0230-050909-micha-ryan-wedding

I think they were dancing the  ho-down here!  Good ol’ cotton eye Joe.

0647-050909-micha-ryan-wedding0650-050909-micha-ryan-weddingThe exit was a fake- leave because the couple along with most of the guests came back and danced through most of the night.   I do love Sparklers!



Thank you so much Micha & Ryan for sharing your day with us!  We had so much fun getting to know your friends and family!  I hope you enjoyed your wedding preview and HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHA!!!!!!!
