While we’re on the subject of Savannah, we’ve been dying to share more images from Sarah & Tom’s savannah wedding!

 

Sarah got ready at this awesome historic house. It was so beautiful!

 

 

The property around the mansion was great,  it made for a beautifully lush backdrop for Sarah’s bridals.

Sarah gifted her bridesmaids individual customized pieces of jewelry. Pretty & thoughtful. :)

 

Tom!! We met Tom at the venue, the magnificent Trustees’ Garden. 

Bagpipe entrances are really cool.

 

Such a beautiful day, perfect for a riverfront ceremony.

Sarah’s mom made this ginormous wedding cake. Each tier had three layers and each layer was a different type of cake. I can’t remember the exact flavors but it was basically just layers of awesomeness.

A midnight snack to fuel the party!

Get it, get it, get it!!

Back with Part 2 of Carrie & Mat’s pretty JCT Wedding! Haven’t seen part 1? Click here :)

I think it’s safe to say that JCT Kitchen might be one of our new favorite venues. The vibe there is amazing, it’s bright and airy with a resort flair. It’s very easy to forget that you’re in Atlanta but you’re quickly reminded when you step outside onto the bridge and see that skyline.  Just see for yourself!

I think the reception music/musicians added to that vibe.  It was a treat being able to listen to them while we work. The female vocalist was Amy Gerhartz & the male vocalist was Tom Wells.

 

Carrie & Mat’s reception was a little different. They had an extended cocktail hour and mingled with their guests for longer than an hour.  At nightfall they cut the cake and danced the night away. It was pretty cool.

 

Carrie & Mat had RSVP postcards. So, all of the RSVP’s ended up being a cute creative keepsake from all of the attending guests. Neat! One the guests did a drawing of one of our engagement photos. Even cooler, we’re shooting his wedding! :D

 

 

They might have had a skipping contest…lol.  Happy people do happy things! :)

Remember Lauren & Eric? These two wed at Turner Field! We love where weddings take us. You won’t want to miss a sneak peek into their day, we had the entire Turner Field to ourselves! Go Braves!

 

 

 

Lauren & Eric didn’t see each other before the ceremony but they wanted to pray together so Eric blindfolded himself. So sweet!

 

More soon!

You remember Huong + Pete from there engagement session now check out their wedding.   We met Huong at the St. Regis hotel for getting ready and bridals.      

 

Angela & Christina from Level Spa did a beautiful job on Huong’s hair and make up.

 
      After Huong’s bridals we headed over to the Fernbank to meet up with Pete and get him ready for their first look.         Their first look…     Huong’s girls being sneaky and stealing a peek of  Huong and Pete seeing each other for the first time. LOL!   The beautiful couple…               A Legendary Event are responsible for Huong’s pretty bouquet.     Right after we were done with portraits it started pouring outside. Huong and Pete were originally to be married outside in front of the venue but had to move everything inside right before the scheduled ceremony time. Everything  still turned out beautifully.  See for yourself. :)                 And now for the reception.  Florals, event design, and catering by A Legendary Event.       Cake by our friend Tristen at Sift!         Loved their entrance into the reception!         Huong snuck off and came back in a pretty Vietnamese dress.   Then she changed back into her wedding gown and cut a rug with their guests on the dance floor.       We hope you love these images as much as we do!

Yay!  We have a sneak from Sofi + Akbar’s wedding festivities!!  Sofi & Akbar had a South Asian wedding and you don’t see that on our blog everyday,  so we took the time to explain some of the events so that you guys can better understand the images.

On the first night with Sofi & Akbar we shot their Pithi ceremony. The Pithi ceremony is celebrated seperately and Sofi and Akbar were not to see each other on this day…

Sofi entering the room to begin her Pithi ceremony…

Sofi and Akbar’s closest friends and family all came up to give blessings and rub a paste made out of chickpea flour, turmeric, sandalwood, saffron and rose water on their skin. The paste is excellent for your skin, it cleanses as well as adds a healthy glow. GOOD TO KNOW!! :)

Candy is fed to them to wish them sweetness in life. :)

Akbar’s Pithi was the same as Sofi’s except after the traditional ceremony the guests followed him into another room for some EXTRA “blessings” just to show how much they REALLY love him. :) This party is totally just for fun!!

The wedding day!

Sofi & Akbar’s beautiful sisters MC’ed the reception.

 

More soon! Happy Monday!!!

YAY! We were featured in this Summer’s issue of  Occasions Magazine! We are so unbelievably excited to finally share this feature with everyone! This Summer’s issue was published last month and we are still giddy with excitement! We loved shooting Katrina & Keinon’s wedding; we got to work with so many of our favorite Studio Wed vendors (who are like family)…having it featured in Occasions Magazine was the bestest cream cheese icing on the cake!!! Ahhhh…we could just go on like this for days. It just really means so much to us!!

*click the cover to view the entire magazine online or visit Barnes and Noble to pick up a copy! :)

.

OK! OK! Enough about us. Let’s talk about  Katrina & Keinon!! We met these two love birds at the Loews Hotel to start…

When we arrived in Katrina’s room the first thing we did was pick our jaws up off the floor…..and then we began shooting. LOL! Katrina is/was so beautiful…she could’ve walked down the aisle in that robe huh??

If you loved those details now…wait til you see them on!

And now for the dapper groom…

We got to watch as Katrina and Keinon gifted the wedding party with some over the top gifts….it was so fun capturing their expressions!

She was stunning…

And so were her girls!!

The cool thing about Katrina & Keinon’s wedding  day is that they had a ceremony, a dinner, and a PAR-CEPTION. They wanted an intimate ceremony and dinner to share with family and they had their friends come later to celebrate and PAR-TAY at the PAR-CEPTION. All three segments of the day were at Ventanas. We’ll show you!!

Ok! Check out Keinon and his boys! We know there are a lot but we just LOVE them all. They were so fun to shoot!

The ceremony was held on the terrace at Ventanas. It was pretty awesome. All florals by Danny Wilson of Savage Garden and all paper goods were done by Debra Saba of Luxe Expressions. And it came together perfectly because with the help of Michelle Gainey of Lemiga Events.

Keinon didn’t have to pick up his jaw up off the floor when he saw Katrina walking down the aisle but he DID have to catch his breathe. AWWWWW!!

Not only was the ceremony beautiful…it was soooo emotional and definitely a treat to witness.

YAY!! The Mr. & Mrs!!!

The intimate dinner was catered by Endive.

Again, florals done by The Savage Garden and menus by Luxe Expressions.

After dinner we got to join Katrina and Keinon on the rooftop for a few portraits while everyone got ready for the PAR-CEPTION!

Awesomeness.

Thirsty?

Time to cut the cake! This awesome cake was by Sweet Sensations.

It was hard to keep the men inside! They were too busy getting cigars rolled out on the terrace! How cool!

And then they partied.

Thank you for being here and sharing this with us! We really couldn’t be more thankful!
