So admittedly, we’re really, really late with this post. It’s been a very busy start to 2016. Nonetheless, we always like to look back at the year that has passed. Therefore, better late than never, here are just some of our favorite images from wedding captured in 2015.
We’re so excited to announce that one of our favorite weddings from earlier this year has been featured in the latest issue of Celebration Society. Congratulations once again to Steve + Margot on such a beautiful wedding. Click here to see our post from their wedding day.
Their wedding day was overcast, cold and windy but both Ruben and Sasha wouldn’t have noticed. These two were so in love and were phenomenal to work with. We have never seen a couple so cool, calm and collected from the moment we arrived at their hotel until the end of the night. Here’s a little sneak peek of what’s to come from the Chukkar Farms wedding.
So you might remember Yaquelin and Alex from their amazing engagement session and from the sneak peek we blogged about a few weeks ago. Well here we’re presenting the complete blog post. It was extremely hard to narrow down the photos for this blog.
The Couple: Yaquelin and Alex
These two were simply amazing. To see the love from within themselves, their faith and the love their friends and family displayed, they are sure to have a successful marriage. Alex is from Lawrenceville, Georgia and Yaqui is from Franklin, Tennessee. they met at a convention a few years ago in Dalton. They were both shy but despite the nerves he mustered up the courage to ask for her number and a beautiful friendship began.
The day started gloomy and gray with a constant mist but that didn’t damper their spirits. All they could think of that day was the fact that they each were going to marry their best friend and spend their lives together forever. Nothing was going to change that. It was so beautiful to witness. Their first look took place on the white lattice bridge over the lake at Vines Botanical Garden in Loganville, Georgia. It was the perfect setting. It’s a beautiful event facility connected to a manicured park with lakes and trails. The weather cooperated for us despite the forecast.
The Reception: Fifth Avenue Event Hall
After the ceremony, the reception took place at Fifth Avenue Event Hall in Buford, Georgia where the couple danced the night away. We had so much fun with these two along with their family and friends. Congratulations Yaquelin and Alex. May you always remember the love that started it all. We love you!
This past spring we had the pleasure of working together with a wonderful team of wedding professionals to highlight one of the best-kept secrets in Georgia. Located in LaGrange, Georgia, the Bisham Manor is a Tudor-style castle with all the luxuries of a modern mansion home.
The location: Bisham Manor
Inspiration for this styled shoot came from the architecture of the house itself. The goal; reflect the custom, bespoke feel of the venue with the modern artistic style of today’s bride. An airy color pallet of blush, gold, ivory, and pale blue-green hues were contrasted nicely by the earthy, rustic tones of the stone and brick walls of the mansion, as well as the dark green landscape surrounding the property.
We are proud to announce that the highly regarded online luxury wedding blog, Strictly Weddings has just published this shoot on their website! Check out the feature located here.
Many thanks to the editors at Strictly Weddingsfor their consideration. Their blog post has many images; however, we’d like to share some of our personal favorite here.
A classic Mercedes-Benz roadster was just another of the many details that made this project such a wonderful collaboration. Something we affectionately call “Southern Tudor Couture”.
Majestic Fairy-tale Location
The Bisham Manor is no ordinary house. It’s custom made. The same is true of the beautiful wedding gowns used on this day. Couture dresses made of silk gazar and french lace with hand-sewn cathedral veils call to the modern style of today’s bride. A tall, expertly decorated wedding cake helps mimic the height of the house.
England’s Finest China
Imported fine china with a British-European style complimented the high-end English Tudor history the home was designed for. No two place settings are alike, thus tapping into today’s style of layering patterns and textures for ultimate design.
Luxurious linens dressed the tables and beautiful floral arrangements echoed the color scheme, providing a very modern, contemporary feel to the look of the shoot.
Once again, we would like to express our sincere thanks to the Bisham Manor staff and all of the vendors listed below that bravely navigated morning thunderstorms and a very hectic schedule to make this shoot possible. If you are engaged or planning a wedding, we highly recommend all of them for your special day.
Oh my…what a weekend we had! We just had to share a little sneak peek to this amazing couple’s wedding. Maybe you remember Alex+Yaqui’s engagement from a few months ago at Piedmont Park. Take a look below to see how their love continues to blossom. Can’t wait to show the full blog post soon.
Love comes together from all angles to make the greatest combinations. A perfect example of this can be found with Mark and Kim. He’s from Jersey; she’s from the Bahamas. He’s an avid fisherman and she loves to work with numbers. Nonetheless they unite to become one of the most caring, fun-loving couples around. Nowhere was this more evident than on their wedding day. An easy-going outdoor ceremony with laughs layered all throughout. Their happiness is ever so evident on a variety of bridal portraits across multiple settings within the Callanwolde Fine Arts grounds. Even though we’ve photographed multiple weddings and events here; never have we been able to make such extensive use of this gorgeous venue on one occasion, covering both the inside and outside spaces of the property. It’s a testament to the value they place on photography. So many thanks to this wonderful couple for such a great experience.
Elegance meets exuberant color. That’s the best way we can describe the beauty of a Nigerian wedding. Chuma+Belle’s big day that began at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel for bridal prep, followed by a ceremony at the Holy Spirit Catholic Church and then back to the the ballroom at the Renaissance Waverly embodied everything you would expect from a wedding. A truly loving couple with strong family bonds who know how to celebrate in style. It’s how all these factors play out that makes their experience so unique.
Belle and Chuma’s Nigerian Wedding
Traditional outfits that feature their culture and heritage compliment modern, sophisticated details. The day begins with Belle’s beautifulcouture dressand Chuma’s sleek black suit. By the time the reception arrives, a quick change of outfits provides an explosion of color. In particular, the Aso-ebi custom is incredibly eye catching. With this Nigerian wedding tradition, outfits are made from matching fabrics and pattern and worn by family members to denote unity, support, and to represent sides of the family. Belle chose to feature Ankara lace in a rich hue of yellow with forest green accents for her wedding party. Friends and family join in the festivities with their own color combinations for a truly uplifting pallet of colors. Touching family tributes and native dance displays provide an atmosphere unlike other weddings you may experience. Heartfelt thanks to Chuma+Belle for allowing us to share this journey!
