When I arrived at West Milford Farm, Joshua was getting ready (brushing his beard) in the groom's suite. His son was in the groom's suite as well, getting ready alongside his father. Joshua was in amazing spirits, which isn't uncommon for the groom and bride on their wedding day, but I remember thinking, "he's SUPER excited." At first I thought it was nerves, but once Chantilly arrived and the couple had their first look, any nerves he may have had melted away completely. His bride was with him.
Cut to the ceremony - this is the first time I have heard the Imperial March played while the bride walked down the aisle. It resulted in giggles from the crowd and laughs from the groomsmen, and a shocked photographer that wishes someone else would play it because it's the best thing I've ever seen.
Chantilly and Joshua were married at West Milford Farm, a beautiful venue located in Dawsonville. Photos below.
