Bullock Springs Manor - Hailey + Brett

Bullock Springs Manor is a wedding venue (duh) located in Dallas, GA. The venue has just been renovated, and all I can say is that it looks incredible.

Bullock Springs Manor can host up to 200 guests at their venue, so if you have a bigger wedding, this really shouldn’t be a problem.

Upon arriving at Bullock Springs Manor, I thought it would be a relatively small venue, but it’s pretty significant when you start walking around the place, to my surprise.

Getting Ready at Bullock Springs Manor


For Hailey and Brett’s wedding, they were in front of the venue to get ready. The girls’ room looks amazing! It feels like you are in a professional makeup studio with mirrors and lights all around. I love the fact that they separated the makeup room.

While Hailey was getting her makeup still done, I went off to capture the wedding dress. In the front of the venue house, there were terrific hanging lights that I had to make use of.

I always get the wedding dress outside, but this time I wanted something different. Since Hailey gave me complete creative control, I took advantage of my creativity 🙂

Once the boys were ready, I took them outright in the front of the house. Grab a few group shots and solo shots. They also had some cool sunglasses, so I made sure I used them.

After finishing up Brett and his groomsmen, we went out for the girl’s group and solo shots. The girls also had some pretty nifty sunglasses, so we used them, of course :).

It’s pretty cool to have a group shot of both the bridal party wearing sunglasses.

Ceremony Inside the Barn


Hailey and Brett’s wedding was held inside the open barn towards the back of the venue. The first time, I was in a barn where it was white! This makes it so much easier to bounce light and get natural-looking images.

We did the family photos right after the ceremony (which I always do) at the wedding ceremony altar. I forgot to tell Hailey to make a list of family photos before the wedding day, so it took a bit longer than expected.

Portraits at Bullock Spring Manor


The day turned cloudy quickly after the ceremony, which I was very grateful for. I love that the clouds start rolling in; they make the perfect light, creating some fantastic portraits.

I shot most of the portraits in natural light, beside one with off-camera light. I wanted one dramatic shot.

We did Hailey’s and Brett’s portrait session right in the middle of the Bullock Spring Manor venue. They have a beautiful garden between the barn and venue that I had to take advantage of.

Wedding Reception


The wedding reception was in the back of the Bullock Springs Manor venue house. However, I missed the bridal party entrance. As I went to get the lights out of my car, they started without me 🙁

I immediately went to Hailey and told her that I missed all of it and asked if she wanted to re-do her entrance since we still had plenty of time. Being sports about, she said, “that’s fine, no worries.”

When you have only one wedding photographer, stuff like this can happen, thus, why I don’t usually shot alone. But for this, I wanted to make up to Hailey and Brett by creating something epic.

So, during the dancing…

I told Hailey, “Hey, I am gonna set up a creative photo for guys.”

Because I create these photos, I need to have a second shooter on hand, so I don’t miss anything inside, but Hailey was super cool anyways.

Bullock Springs Manor had an amazing tree covered with Christmas lights. I knew the lights would naturally be in the shot if I shot here, making it a nice-looking photo. All I had to do was to light the couple. And below is the photo that was stuck in my head.

The Grand Exit, a sparkler exit with rain! As it was time to end the fun, it started to rain! We had planned to do the sparkler exit in the front, but we had to narrow our view to just inside the driveway with the rain.

That sucked because if we had a broader view, it would’ve looked better. But ah, the things that happen at weddings. Always an adventure 🙂 And yup, I drove home wet.

Bullock Springs Manor Wedding Venue


Bullock Springs Manor is a fantastic wedding venue. Everything is in close proximity, so walking isn’t an issue. With multiple locations for some great photos, you can go wrong with this venue.

We got some fantastic photos during the portrait session; the clouds coming help a lot. But I am sure I can take some fantastic sunset photos here as well.

Make sure to see their full gallery here.

If you like my wedding photography, let’s chat. Just remember to grab more hours to make your wedding photos stand out. After all, it does take time to create amazing photos.

And you will never really know what will happen on your wedding day. The last thing you want is an incomplete wedding documented.
