Sam & Logan // Wildflower 301 Wedding // Second Shooting with Quarte Photography

Wildflower 301 Wedding // Sam & Logan

As much as I love my own couples, there’s something really fun artistically about being able to be a second photographer on a wedding day with another photographer. This year, I had the extreme joy of working with Christine of Christine Quarte Photography. It was truly the universe finally bringing us together: she and I had been friends online for a long time and she needed a second shooter at Wildflower 301 {a dream venue that I’ll be shooting at again in October!} on a date I was available! So I jumped at the chance, and I’m so glad I did. I LOVE second shooting, especially for photographers that I love and admire. It’s always such a learning experience, like how do other photographers work, gives me a chance to work with new people and at new places, makes me feel connected to the wedding industry in a new way.

Wildflower 301 is a beautiful and elegant wedding venue located in Greensboro, Georgia. It is a 10-acre estate with lush gardens and a manor house. Wildflower 301 is the perfect place to host a wedding, whether you are looking for a small, intimate ceremony or a large, lavish reception. I loved being able to explore this gorgeous venue with a great photographer like Christine, and a wonderful couple. There’s hidden joys everywhere and Wildflower 301 really provides a great spot for a relaxed wedding day. 

Getting Ready & First Look

As is typical when second shooting a wedding day, I captured Logan getting ready with his wedding party. The energy in the room was amazing – everyone was so happy to help him prep for the wedding. Wildflower 301 has some beautiful getting ready spaces, and their wedding party wore the most fun pastel outfits, bringing even more color into the room {which I ALWAYS love}. The rain on the day of Sam & Logan’s wedding day didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits! Sam & Logan met for a first look out in the gardens and I loved the chance to get playful with some angles and details of Logan with the umbrella beforehand.

Sam & Logan’s wedding day was absolutely stunning and they definitely took advantage of the beautiful grounds. Their ceremony took place out on the lawn. There’s a beautiful structure on the grounds that serves as a truly lovely backdrop for couples.

Sam & Logan filled the reception space at Wildflower 301 with the prettiest pastel details. It was absolutely gorgeous – especially with all of the fairy lights coming down from the ceiling. Sam changed into a fun party dress to show off the rest of the night {which I LOVED}. All about an outfit change so you can party hard! Their reception was a blast. Honestly, the whole day was a lot of fun.
