I have already shared my fear of the ocean and sharks when we shared this underwater offshore engagement session feature ... well, another big fear of mine is heights! I really would rather my feet be on the ground at all times, which is why I was so amazed by this wedding ceremony ABOVE ground! A hot air balloon wedding ceremony!! Sara and Joey chose to exchange vows floating over Atlanta and brought photographer Josie Kay along to capture it all! Below are some words from Sara:
Being a wedding photographer, I knew I wanted to do something different. I wanted to do something I had never seen before. Joey and I tossed around a lot of ideas and we finally came up with our perfect plan. A hot air balloon wedding! It was something that was on our bucket list. We both love adventure and it just seemed like the perfect fit for us. We also love to host events so we had a reception for our friends and family at our house.
We had our immediate family there to watch us take off. Joey and our friend who officiated the wedding got in the balloon first and then my dad (who was doubled as one of my photographers) walked me up to the basket and gave me away. Then our videographer jumped in and we took off. It was the most incredible feeling as we started to float into a cloud. Everything was white around us and it was so peaceful and quiet. As my husband started saying his vows the cloud slowly disappeared and we were able to look around us Everything looked so awesome from our angle. It was perfect.
Sound like something you'd be up for? It does make for some really awesome photos!! Check them out below and then comment to tell me if this is something you'd love to try!
