Emily and Alex’s wedding featured not just one wedding celebration, but two, each with it’s own unique feeling for this lovely Atlanta couple. Emily, the owner of a Emily Amy, a contemporary art gallery, planned a small, intimate ceremony for Friday evening, followed by a sweet Southern celebration at her new husband’s family’s home on Saturday. A beautiful way to celebrate indeed!
Emily spent a relaxing Friday morning getting ready with her parents. And while I think it is always fun to have the bride get ready with her bridesmaids, these pictures of Emily spending her wedding morning getting ready with her parents made me tear up!
After getting ready with her parents, Emily met Alex for a quiet moment and a few pictures. Instead of waiting for the ceremony, a lot of couples are now choosing to do a “first look.” It is a nice opportunity to share an intimate moment before all of the commotion begins.
Emily and Alex held their wedding ceremony underneath an outdoor pavilion at The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center.
After the small, intimate ceremony everyone headed to Bacchanalia for a private dinner.
The next day featured bright skys and a crisp fall day for their casual, Southern-influenced reception.
For the party, Emily and Alex chose simple touches that played upon the Southern style of their surroundings. The flower arrangements and decor gave a nod to their beautiful setting without being overpowering.
Dennis Dean Catering cooked up a mouth watering feast featuring Southern staples using locally-sourced ingredients.
Thanks so much to Emily and Alex for allowing us to show their beautiful pictures from their special weekend. And, thank you to the photographers, Ben & Colleen for sharing their work!
