Heather and Ken

We love to travel!  Nathan traveled to Atlanta, Georgia for Heather and Ken’s wedding. Heather and Ken met in high school. Heather was very shy and they only went on one date. That date made a lasting impression on both of them. After high school Heather and Ken went their separate ways, getting married and having children. As life sometimes goes they both found themselves divorced. One day Heather received a friend request from Ken and she knew that this was a life changing experience. Even though both live in separate cities and have careers and children of their own, they know their love is strong enough to endure any obstacle. They chose to get married at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens surrounded by their friends and family. Their wedding was soon after Christmas, so the gardens were covered in beautiful lights.  Callie from We Tie The Knots designed and coordinated the day, we loved the evergreen that decorated the place cards.  TLC Rents and Event Drapery provided breathtaking event accessories to the reception. Sweet Peeps did a wonderful making a cake that looked like it was coming out of a Winter Wonderland.  Flowers were by Boukates and they did a great job accenting the Day Hall of the gardens.

Ginny and Todd

Ginny’s vision for her big day was a winter wedding with classy, southern charm and lots of candle light for a warm, cozy feeling. She chose black bridesmaids dresses and a classic black tux with bow tie for the groomsman.  Ginny had the talented team from Salon Capelli do a great job showing off her beautiful green eyes and long blonde hair.  The ladies had Gown Boutique of Charleston had Todd in tears when she walked down the isle in her beautiful gown.  For flowers, Ginny wanted to have whites with just little springs of green to contrast the bridesmaids black dresses and also to fit in with the winter theme. Country and Lace Florist did a great job pulling together Ginny’s vision and coordinating the event.  Following the ceremony, a bagpiper played filling the streets with the happy announcement of a new marriage. Walking over to the Mills House from the French Huguenot Church, the bridesmaids carried candles for a very festive touch. Ginny also choose lots of silver and gold for a touch of sparkle that added to the elegant feel. Immaculate Confections designed and baked a  beautiful cake for guests to enjoy.  Both Ginny and Todd agreed that they wanted their wedding to be FUN! So they decided to have a great band, Momentum, at the reception to keep the reception upbeat and lively! Ginny wore her grandmothers’ fur stole to the reception and her bridesmaids wore monogrammed wraps. Their big leave consisted of everyone throwing artificial snow to wrap up the wonderful winter wedding!

Tori & Nick

Tori and Nick were married at Magnolia Plantation and had lots of details that to remind the bride and groom of their grandmothers.  Each of their grandmothers picked cotton as a child and so Tori and Nick wanted to incorporate cotton into the the day.  Tori’s bridals were taken right in the middle of perfect azalea season, and Nathan captured some amazing pictures that day. And the groom is a huge golf fan, so it was fun to add a little club action to the mix! We enjoyed getting to work with Dee Barnes who did an excellent job designing, coordinating, and decorating the event. Tori and Nick had such a sweet day and I am sure her grandmother was looking down with a huge smile!
