We initially met Chris + Julie on Instagram and instantly knew we wanted to be apart of their wedding day! Julie’s personality was one of the things that really caught our attention and little did we know that she was Tiktok famous at the time. lol. In addition to us falling for their personalities, we noticed how beautiful of a couple they are and we soon realized at their wedding that they have a very special kind of love. They decided to write their own vows to each other and we could not believe how incredibly intimate and personal these were. This is to DIE FOR! When we are telling our couples stories, it always helps us tremendously when they write their own heart-felt vows.
Speaking of personalities. THEIR FRIENDS + FAMILY!!! This particular group of friends they had was LITTERALLY like nothing else we have ever seen. To start with, the thought and effort that went into planning and set up this day was incredible. Julie did such an amazing job with everything! Her good friend over at JJ’s Flowershop hooked her up with some EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL floral’s and by far the most beautiful bouquet we’ve ever seen! However, the speeches that her friend’s and family gave at this intimate North GA wedding all came straight from the heart. I’m not sure how any of us kept it together to be honest!
We also met the sweetest couple photography team in the world! Kristen and her husband John were a dream to work with and we were so happy to make friends with them! Kristen + Emi broke it down on the dance floor while John + I stayed back and capture those awesome moments as well! LOL.
Chris + Julie’s Teaser Film:
Their friends setup a very special event for Jules + especially Chris called a drag show. Their friend Austin, sat Chris down in a chair in the living room and played some Rihanna to dance to. Well, it turned out to be more like a strip show but anyway, we think Chris enjoyed it far more than Jules….. NAH I’m jk Chris but the look on your face when Austin came out that room was priceless!! HAHAHAHA. Shortly thereafter, it was Jules turn to get in the chair. As you can tell from their teaser film, it was a good time! Austin KILLED IT with Julie’s hair and make-up by the way.

Not only did we enjoy staying the night with this group of people. But we actually had the one of the best times of our lives. To say that we hit it off with each and every person at this wedding is an understatement. We made connections that we have never really gotten to experience at this point of our lives and we really feel connected to an entirely new network of AMAZING people who enjoy the good things in life and live for a purpose. No matter what that purpose is, I can tell you that this group of friends will create an impact on the world in some way!
Below is Chris + Julie’s full length wedding film with vows that will absolutely make you cry, laugh, and dance right where you stand!
