When the bride first contacted me about their summer wedding in Atlanta, GA back in October 2017. I was so thrilled to hear the details of what she was imaging for her big day. They were planning the most beautiful summer wedding with an intimate ceremony, tulip ceremony, jumping of the broom and even a balloon send off.
They seemed like the sweetest people and to hear their long-distance love story was captivating. And I looked forward to photographing their wedding.
I began the early Saturday afternoon at the Westin Peachtree Place capturing details, where the couple was getting ready, and it was so relaxed as the bride was surrounded by her bridesmaids.
Herbrina wore a custom made Bridal by Lori dress made by Lazaro and Micheal wore a custom blue suit and they looked so amazing.
The wedding took place at the Summerour Studios in Atlanta, GA, and was a stunning intimate ceremony. They had personal vows they wrote themselves, which was just magical. And the couple elected to also incorporate a tulip ceremony and jumping of the broom After the ceremony the couple danced back down the aisle together, and then the celebrations began.
The reception: It was a gloomy rainy day, which wasn’t in the plans but the couple didn’t mind. While the guests enjoyed the food and the various cocktails, we wandered around the venue after the rain died down to do intimate portraits. Such a beautiful moment as the bride and her Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority sisters gather together to sing the AKA hymn.
Congratulations and many wishes to the happy couple!
