I love traveling. Doesn’t even have to be to anywhere tropical, if it involves a passport, or a plane ride, the hustle and bustle of an airport, you can count me in.
So when Katie and Andrew asked me to come photograph their nuptials in Atlanta, I said of course! I’d never been to the ATL before, so taking a weekend to soak up another city was right up my alley. Not to mention, their wedding was going to be a beautiful, tented affair in the park, which sounded damn near perfect.
This day was such a stellar day, you guys. Katie looked absolutely stunning, like she took a TARDIS straight from the Jazz Age to come say her I Do’s to Andrew, looking quite snazzy himself.
The room where she got ready…I could have seriously spent an entire day in there just running around all giddy giddy gumdrops because of the ridiculous light and overabundance of textures on the walls and floors. Not to mention this half round door/window situation, which looked like something out of an R.R. Tolkien shire. The stuff of dreams, I tell ya!
The day itself was as good as they get: slightly cloudy (with a chance of meatballs), warm afternoon sunlight, a huge Weeping Willow under which Andrew nervously-excitedly waited for his soon-to-be-wife, a park full of happy people, a Labradoodle in the middle of an epic photobomb, and that kickass city skyline, my Atlanta-native buddy David Murray shooting this one with me, a black-and-white checkered dance floor, really tasty eats and a taco bar (!!!), emotional parent dances (everybody cried!), and two people so very much in love, you could feel it.
Take a peek at all the goodness below, and leave some well-wishes for the happy newlyweds, by sharing your favorite, sappy, mushy, ooey-gooey love song with us all below in the comments! 🙂
