Mark and Julie welcomed me into their lives to capture one of the most memorable weddings of my career to date. The love between the couple was beautiful and their two kiddos, a joy to spend my Saturday with! After the ceremony, the guest were invited to a cocktail hour. For the bride, groom and I, the ceremony was succeeded by rooftop portraits. (Note: Clicking any photo on this blog will take you to their extended gallery.)
Julie and Mark hosted a truly magnificent reception. The dreamy Livingston Restaurant + Bar in Atlanta created a warm and inviting atmosphere for their families and friends.
A Lovely Dinner + Heartfelt Moments
Dinner was nothing shy of elegant. It was a room filled with smiling faces, laughter, glasses of wine. Once meals were complete, Mark surprised their guests with very touching speeches, sharing stories of love and heartbreaking loss. Inspiring words about family and friends being what life is all about. Looking back at these stills, I can feel the emotions that were running through the room. There really are no words to explain. Perhaps these captured moments will speak volumes to you as well.
And we were off to the dance floor!
"But first, let me take a selfie..."
Selfie sticks were set out for guests to snap pictures of themselves throughout the night!
Someone on the Facebook fan page wrote, "And they lived happily ever after..." on this photo that I uploaded a few days prior to this blog. That saying fits so well. :)
Thank you so much to Mark and Julie for inviting me into your lives to capture such a special day! And many thanks to the ladies of SAS Weddings for bringing this wedding to life.
