  61. -100. Courtney Yllander says:

    I absolutely love this wedding. From the simplistic colors to the personalized aspects. I love the font they used for invitations, and the use of burlap (i think) to wrap the flowers. Ah. So gorgeous. Haley Sheffield did a FANTASTIC job capturing all of the small details of their big day. So glad I live close enough to utilize her for my big day!!

  62. -100. Brittany Mixon says:

    I absolutely love how Haley Sheffield captures not only the innocence of the bride, but the atmosphere of the wedding. Wedding photographers never forget to take photos of the people, but often forget to capture the small details that make the wedding perfect.
    Haley has such a gift! She gives the viewer the ability to feel exactly as if they are at the wedding.

  63. -100. Rebecca Ezell says:

    HALEY! I didn’t know this was your work at first! I StumbleUpon-ed this like a week ago and “favorite-ed” it and then shared it with Chad, my best friend (Jessica W. aka JDub) and my family! Everyone LOVED it. This is the look with are going for ~ a southern rugged elegance! Lots of mason jars and burlap!

    I love the use of the “Just Married” banner in the pictures and the candid girls dancing picture!

    Beautiful wedding and beautifully captured!

  64. -100. Laurene Greene says:

    I LOVE THIS! Beautiful wedding and beautiful photography! LOVE!

  65. -100. Lindsey G says:

    Wow! This wedding is absolutely stunning in photos! So magical! My fav pic is the one of the bride and groom with the cake! Haley–I love you & miss you and I gave you some love on the Wedding Chicks! :-)

  66. -100. Chad Brown says:

    Your work is phenomenal, my fiance (Rebecca Ezell) showed me your work and i feel in love with it instantly!! Much Love

  67. -100. Joni Schnable says:

    Hailey- You have such a talent! I would have to say that my most favorite part of these photos are of the emotional groom as he sees his bride for the first time. As a bride-to-be, I must say that the most memorial part of my day will most definitely be the 20 million different emotions that I will feel on that day. To actually see a “macho-man” groom feel that same feeling is remarkable- to capture it to share with others is priceless! Thank you for sharing!! :)

  68. -100. Miranda says:

    I LOVE their signs! “Just Married” and “Love Sweet Love.” The vintage feel to these pics is great!

  69. -100. Belen says:

    Such a beautiful wedding and even more beautiful capture!!! I really look up to you as a photographer, you are following your dreams and succeeding! Amazing <3

  70. Mmm, we’re a little late to the party, but even a year later, we’re still fans of the gorgeous warm colors and the tasteful use of the Catholic Church of St. Ann. It’s an excellent example of a shabby chic Atlanta wedding!
