Courtney is a very laid back bride. When she got to the Piedmont Garden Tent her dress was all balled up in her arms, and she was carrying the flip flops she planned to wear for the ceremony. Within minutes she was dressed and ready for photos, and it wasn’t long before the flips flops got ditched, and she ended up barefoot. The thing that was clear was, her priority was on marrying Brian, and the rest of it, well, it would all fall into place. And thanks to her very helpful bridesmaids and some family members working on the set up, everything looked amazing, and we even somehow ended up ahead of schedule!
The ceremony was performed by her maid of honor, Devon, so it was full of personal stories from over the course of their relationship. One that stood out to me was when they talked about how hard Monday’s were, because after a entire weekend of being together, it felt like a long time to be a part! These two are clearly head over heels for each other, and it was obvious by the number of kisses being stolen throughout the ceremony, that they are inseparable! And with Brian comes three beautiful kids, who were included in the vows as they joined not just two lives, but all five together as one family.
Thankfully the rain in Atlanta held out, and we got to go into Piedmont Park to get some photos before heading into to the reception. Brian’s friend has a band called “The Geeks”, who kept everyone on the dance floor, and had us all rocking matching glasses by the end of the night. The rain did eventually come, which meant no sparkler exit, but these two already had some serious sparks flying between them, so who needs actual flames! Here are some of my favorite images from their wedding day.
Courtney & Brian- It was great getting to celebrate with you! Thanks for making me feel like a welcomed friend, and allowing me into your inner circle for the day. I wish you guys a lifetime of long weekends together, and plenty of stolen kisses! -Bre
