Married! Amanda + David

Amanda and David were nothing but EXCITED on their wedding day!  When I got to Amanda’s hotel room I expected her to be anxious, but she was just ready to go!  David was the same way.  When we walked past his hotel room it was all he could do to keep from peeking out at Amanda!

Their wedding day started out rainy, but by mid-day the sun was out and all the clouds had disappeared.  Below, little rain drops were dripping from one of the trees, and a shot of Amanda’s adorable Chinese Laundry flats…

David and his brother…

Amanda and her maid of honor…

We had never before been to Wolf Mountain Vineyards in Dahlonega, so it was especially exciting to be a part of a wedding there…

Our favorite: Amanda and David saw each other before their ceremony!

The talented Tim Bright with Petals designed all of the flowers…

Amanda’s Maggie Sottero gown was phenomenal on her!

Getting married…

Amanda and her dad…

Amanda and David’s dear friend also officiated their ceremony, making for one extra-emotional ceremony!

I DIED when I saw these amazing shoes that Amanda’s bridesmaids wore!  (The girls themselves also almost died, but from falling off of these impossibly high heels!  Really, they looked awesome and catwalked like pros!)

Immediately after the ceremony, ALL of the guests gathered outside the pavilion for one big group photo!

This fondant-free (yum!) cake was from Dahlonega’s friendly neighborhood Publix!

The wedding party…

Each guest took home a little “thank you” give — a beautifully-engraged corkscrew, the PERFECT give for a vineyard wedding!

The newlyweds!

David dancing with his mom…

Amanda’s hair and makeup held up beautifully through the long, hot August day.  Kudos to Belle Avance Salon for gorgeous styling!

Toasts…

Cake-cutting…

DJ Triple M!

Amanda and David, y’all are AWESOME!  Thank you so much for letting us celebrate with you two!  We will be calling you up when we make it out to San Diego!

Married! Tina + Sumon

Tina and Sumon were THE most FANTASTIC couple to share our first Indian wedding with!  They had total faith in us from the get-go, and we felt completely embraced by their friends and family at their gorgeous St. Regis Hotel wedding here in Atlanta.

When we arrived, we went straight up to Tina’s and Sumon’s rooms while they finished getting ready…

The little flower girl, Tina’s neice…

Outside, the guests gathered for Sumon’s formal arrival for the wedding ceremony…

The ballroom was decorated for the ceremony by Weddings In Style.

We snuck away after the ceremony for some quick portraits…

While Tina and Sumon went upstairs to change, we grabbed some shots of the ballroom as it was transformed for the reception.  This super-cool wedding cake was designed by Ramona with Unforgettable Wedding Cakes

Tina and Sumon reappeared in gorgeous new clothes for their reception… and some more portraits!

Time to party!

Tina’s dad…

Yes, they even had someone there to SING to them!

AMAZING Indian cuisine was catered by Cafe Bombay

I’m gonna have to learn to pop champagne like this…

Tina was a professional dancer, I think from high school through college.  She and Sumon both TORE UP the dance floor — with a little help from DJ Neal!

Last toast of the night…

Tina and Sumon, thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts for sharing your celebration with us!  We are so honored to have been there with you on such an incredibly special day.  You know you always have friends here in Atlanta!
