Etowah River Cabin & Wolf Mountain Vineyards | Dahlonega, GA

My heart is bursting at the seams with excitement over this beautiful wedding I’m sharing on my blog today!  Melissa and Joe are hands down the PERFECT couple!!  I have known Melissa’s family for almost 8 years and have grown very close with her mother who is one of my dearest friends.  I have anticipated this wedding along with this sweet family for 18 long months (or maybe even a little longer).  The moment I could spot the extended forecast, I was stalking the weather at least twice a day. 🙂  Melissa and Joe chose the breathtaking Wolf Mountain Vineyard as their wedding venue and I wanted nothing more than for this deserving couple to have a perfect day!

Melissa and Joe met through a mutual friend while Melissa was attending UGA.  Their story is actually kind of funny — during the process of Melissa’s friend setting them up on a date, Joe was given the wrong phone number.  His first text to Melissa went straight to… her mother!!  After Melissa and her Mom wrestled over the phone, Melissa was finally able to text Joe and give him the correct number.  After finding out they both had Czech mothers named Lisa (and a million other things in common), they began dating and the rest is history!

Melissa and Joe, thank you from the bottom of my heart for entrusting me to capture such special moments.  Thank you for allowing me to be there with you…. to get to know you better… and for blessing my heart with the amazing love that is so visible each time I’m around you.  I hope you enjoy my favorite images from your beautiful wedding day! xo

    Thank you for capturing these special moments forever Tiffany! It was a true blessing to have you and your team with us on Melissa and Joe’s perfect day. Your eye for beauty and detail is unparalleled.

    Patrick is the perfect complement as your “second shooter” and a natural with the groomsmen and families. Your assistants were not only helpful, they were FUN and made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. We also appreciated your insight and preparation of the timeline for the day and were grateful for the advice.

    We will always cherish the memories from Melissa and Joe’s wedding. These exquisite images will help us relive the magic for years to come! We couldn’t have selected a more talented, dedicated, and creative artist as our daughter’s wedding photographer.

    Thank you again for making time stand still on a perfect day.
