“The Top Voted Radiant Wedding Photos of 2012”
The top 10 (in random order):
So this first photo is most definitely NOT in random order because this one beat all the rest by a huge margin! So this amazing, beautiful, vineyard wedding ceremony is the ultimate first place winner of, “Best Radiant Wedding photo of 2012”!!! Congrats Ashley and JT! I’m especially excited about this win because JT was the wedding photographer for Scottie and my OWN wedding! See photos from our wedding as well as more from this gorgeous vineyard wedding, here!
A 2012 Radiant bride who came to vote on her OWN wedding photos said, “even though this isn’t my wedding I LOVE this moment and photo so I have to vote on it”! See more from Ross and Megan’s wedding with a view.
Words like “chaps”, “staches”, “Movember”, aren’t often associated with weddings… but voters DID use them for this photo! See more photos from Ashley and JT’s gorgeous vineyard wedding.
Officially this photo wins because of the number of votes it had. But it wins in my (Breanna’s) heart because I actually had to translate one of the comments into English which I thought was awesome (FYI Facebook does that for you!)… and because the preacher called himself a hottie. See more from Clarence and Shanya’s very fun wedding.
The voters were big fans of how the bright colors contrasted the rustic background on this photo. See more photos from Ashley and JT’s gorgeous vineyard wedding.
The comments on this photo between family members, especially between the bride and her father, are so beautiful that you just have to go see them for yourself. See more of Ashlee and Jason’s Elegantly Rustic Wedding.
This photo of the guys praying before the wedding was a photo Scottie knew he HAD to get since it’s a duplicate of one of his favorite photos that JT (the groom here) took when he was the photographer at our own wedding! See the photo from our wedding that this one is based on as well as more from Ashley and JT’s beautiful vineyard wedding, here!
One voter declared this one “winner, winner, chicken dinner”. Looks like he knew what he was talking about! See more of Susanne and Greg’s Gorgeous Golf Course Wedding.
It looks like voters can’t resist the kind of manly groomsmen photo that Scottie’s famous for, anymore than I can! See more of Amanda and AJ’s delightfully detailed wedding.
It was said that this photo was a perfect capture of Ashley and JT’s personality. See more photos from Ashley and JT’s gorgeous vineyard wedding.

The bride pointed out that this photo is extra special to her because one of her bridesmaids lives in Slovakia and she didn’t expect her to be able to make it. So the fact that she DID come and got to be in this picture is an amazing memory for the bride. See more of Christine and Marc’s perfect wedding day.
I absolutely loved the bride’s comment on this one: “I love everything about this photo, it was shortly after the wedding and everything still felt like a dream.
