Chasity Stinson and Jerry Mathis exchanged personal vows on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at six o’clock in the evening. The bride and groom, surrounded by one hundred and fifty of their dearest family and friends officially began their journey as husband and wife at the Carter Presidential Center. But not, however, before an extra special First Look at one another in a private meeting before the ceremony.

First Looks are especially wonderful opportunities for timeless photography and wedding videography moments. Jerry witnessed Chasity in her wedding gown for the first time in on the rooftop of the Renaissance in Atlanta. There, the two read to one another love letters written just for their special day.
Surrounded by vibrant flowers by Perfect Petals Design Group in the theatre themed ceremony layout, Chasity and Jerry recited original vows for the ceremony where the minister preformed a special Hand Ceremony and a Rose Ceremony. Chasity wore a special charm and acoustic music was played in honor of her father who passed away the previous year.
A reception, also at the Carter Presidential Center, followed the ceremony where guests were welcomed with a sit down meal by Proof of the Pudding, and entertainment by DJ Sam. Todd Baugh photographed the event. Dancing, a cotton candy machine and a photobooth entertained guests from the cocktail hour, to the first dance, the garter toss and beyond. Everything went smoothly thanks to the coordination from our buds at Elly B Events.
Both members of sororities and fraternities, Chasity and Jerry sang special hymns to honor their pledges. Toasts were raised and thousands of sparkling memories made.
The couple made their exit amid the waving of sparklers and the cheering and well wishes of cherished guests. A vintage Bentley carried the newlyweds away to the next of many adventures ahead of them.
