Will + Griselda | Love At Last - Braselton, GA

Friday, February 20, 2009

On Valentine's Day I documented the proposal of Will and the lovely Griselda at the Chateau Elan Winery in Braselton, GA. I remember the first time speaking to Will one late January afternoon and the anxiousness in his voice. I asked him was the ring burning a hole in his pocket yet and he said, "Yes!" I thought back to my own engagement and how excited I was just weeks before the big day. Will arranged a limo to pick up he and his main squeeze from home and drive them an hour up to the north Georgia Winery. Once arriving at the destination, Griselda emerged from the limo totally stunned at the location and Will's secret planning process. After bypassing the check-in they took a tour of the Winery. I kept a safe distance for a while and then text Will that it was time for the big moment since the sun had finally decided to illuminate the sky after a morning of light rain. I handed the ring box to Will that I had privately snuck off to shoot in one of the vacant tour viewing rooms. Griselda's face was priceless as Will knelt to profess his love and ask for her hand in marriage. She said "Yes!" with no apprehension and admired her ring for some time - much to Will's satisfaction. After the proposal Will surprised Griselda further with roses he had delivered to their suite along with white and dark chocolate covered strawberries. The two ended the unforgettable evening with a private dinner to reminisce about the day's events and to plan the rest of their lives together.

Congratulations Will and Griselda! I am continually honored by all of my clients/friends that allow me to document such intimate moments of their lives. I wish you nothing but the best in your future and I look forward to hearing about your wedding plans soon.

I would like to commend Ross for such awesome, breath-taking, natural looking photos! I love it....To my handsome and wonderful brother Will, only God could give you such a magnificent woman like Griselda to help compliment you. I believe that Knights in shining armour really do exist and dreams can come true...it did for both of you. May God bless your union!
