Harwell Photography never fails to bring some of the most fabulous southern fêtes our way, and they teamed up with the talented Table 6 Productions for this little Georgia number to produce traditional elegance at its finest. It has all the elegant elements that will stand the test of time, and a bright red lipstick-wearing bride to top it all off. How perfect does she look? The entire affair is just as perfect, and you can see it all in the full gallery of images!
From the Bride…Bryan and I met in one of the most beautiful places, and in one of the most unconventional ways- on a safari in Cape Town, South Africa. Amanda was serving with a nonprofit in Cape Town via the University of Georgia in the summer of 2009. As it turns out, the founders of this nonprofit are college friends of Bryan’s, and thus invited him to join our group for a safari to Kruger National Park. Little did we know that while serendipitously sitting next to each other on the safari cart we would be captivated by each other during that first game ride, and inseparable until we left Cape Town. People say that because of our individual passion for travel, it’s no surprise that we had to go half way across the world to meet each other.
The inspiration for the wedding was vintage 1940’s, with a focus on rich colors. With blueberry and deep reds in flowers, dining decor and abundant candle-light, this black-tie affair transformed the Four Season’s Atlanta into a classy and intimate environment.
From Table 6 Productions…We really wanted to give her wedding the feeling that guests had stepped back into the 40’s but at the same time since the couple is from New York we wanted there to be very chic elements that reflected their modern lifestyle in New York. When Amanda was shopping for a dress she had a set idea in her mind before even trying a dress on. From a young age Amanda loved The Sound of Music Since being a little girl Amanda imagined herself in a wedding dress similar to Julie Andrews in Sound of Music.
