Married! Maisha + Torry

We’re doing things a little differently than usual… since Maisha and Torry’s wedding photos likely won’t be 100% finished before Christmas, we wanted them to have a BIG fat preview to enjoy while they wait!  :)  So while the slideshow will come in a few more weeks, here are our “Top 40″…

Maisha and Torry got married the Saturday after Thanksgiving (chilly but sunny) then left for a honeymoon in MOROCCO (warm and exotic)!  We’re already counting down until they get back in town and we can meet them to hear all about their trip!

Dan designed these tri-fold “Save the Date” cards using Maisha and Torry’s engagement photos.  Maisha had one sitting on her nightstand:

LOVE Maisha’s champagne-colored gown!

The groom-to-be, layout out his suit:

Maisha’s godsister helped out with a makeup mirror while Maisha applied lipstick.  (Is she getting teary-eyed already?)  :)

Torry had a few moments alone (sorta) before it was time to pick up Maisha.  This is totally unposed, and it’s one of our absolute favorite pictures!

Maisha and Torry’s rings were laying just like this when we arrived:

Maisha bundled up in a fur shawl, prepared for the cold post-Thanksgiving weather.  As it turned out, the day was GORGEOUS and she didn’t even need it!


(Anne’s shot)

Maisha and Torry decided to see one another before their ceremony.  It’s always wonderful to have lots of time for portraits!  Maisha helped Torry finish getting ready by pinning his boutonniere:

Torry prayed over Maisha and himself as they took the elevator downstairs.  It was so precious to be part of this quiet moment.

While Torry took Maisha’s fur wrap back upstairs (it was MUCH too nice of a day for that!), Maisha relaxed in the foyer.

This yellow car was just hangin’ out in a parking lot as we walked to the church.  Hello, yellow!  :)


(Anne’s shot)

Maisha and Torry held their ceremony at Decatur First United Methodist Church. We LOVED the stone building and huge old doors!

The neighborhood was pretty sweet, too!  Just across the street from the chapel we had this stunning view:

Then right around the corner, a brick wall covered in green vines…

And another few feet gave us a street lined with gorgeous fall colors and fallen leaves.  It was PERFECT!

This light-filled Bride’s Room was the perfect spot for the last portrait before the ceremony began:

See the 12 people at the front of the church?  Yep, that’s right: 12.  Maisha and Torry wanted a private ceremony with only their immediate family: parents, siblings, and godfamily.  It was such an honor to be part of such an intimate celebration!

Maisha’s brother and his partner watch as Maisha and Torry say their vows.

Maisha fits Torry’s ring onto his finger.

Maisha and Torry jumped a broom to symbolize their new union as husband and wife! (Over… and over… and over again!)  ;)


(Dan’s shots)

Dan followed Maisha and Torry out of the church to capture their first moments as newlyweds.


(Dan’s shot)

Maisha snuggling with her godmother… Her godmother is an ordained minister, and performed Maisha and Torry’s ceremony!  It’s so special when someone close to the couple is able to officiate their wedding ceremony!

The men: Torry with his new father-in-law, new brother-in-law, godfather, and godbrothers.

All of the guests in ONE photo!

After the ceremony, everyone headed to Feast for dinner.  Feast is a wonderfully cozy little restaurant in Decatur.  We’re already making plans to go back for dinner!
