Sunflowers + Stone Mountain
Destiny & Adrian
When I asked them the question, "What do you want to remember about this time in your life?" they said, "Our family."
Destiny and Adrian met almost six years ago, in the military. Destiny was working as a medic, and Adrian was doing some engineering work. They fell in love, started a family, and eventually left the military to pursue careers - She as an ER nurse, and he as an electrician. They now have two beautiful daughters, but didn't get to have the wedding photos of their dreams... so with the help of Lavish & Lush, we were able to re-create the wedding photos they didn't get to have at the top of beautiful Stone Mountain!
Hair and Makeup
Abby at Lavish and Lush took Destiny's boho-inspired floral hairpiece and created an entire look that was both classy and trendy - while making her feel like a princess and keeping everyone laughing!
The hike in
After we had donned our best duds, it was time to hike the mountain! We traveled about an hour to Stone Mountain, where we began our trek in the fields at the base of the mountain.
The Granite Dome
We went up about a mile and a half, before we finally saw the bottom of the beautiful granite dome. Don't be fooled, guys! This is not a volcano. It's North Carolina. The stones were so beautifully dark and the craters really do lend a volcanic quality to the space. It was the perfect place for what we had planned.
Baby Whitener # 3!
By the time we finished up this image set, it was getting a little chilly... so we decided to heat things up a bit.
And then... we danced.
Adrian and Destiny wrapped up their mountain elopement session with a dance to their favorite song... "All of Me" by John Legend.
Oh, and that black and white photo down there? That's the look on her face when he tells her why he's so proud to be her husband.
Congrats, you kids.
It was so incredible to share this with you - Celebrating your love, reading your vows, and announcing the new life you are adding to your family.
I can't wait to see what comes next for you guys!
