From The Studio B Photography…Every now and then a weather miracle occurs on a wedding day. Such was the case for Shannon and Eric’s big day, which was held entirely outdoors at the stunning Cator Woolford Gardens in Atlanta. As long as the extended forecast had been available for the wedding day, it called for rain. There was a backup option in case of rain, but the beautiful grounds of the garden were precisely what made Shannon fall in love with the venue, and it would be sad to give that up. Enter the miracle.
It rained the day before the wedding, and then the clouds disappeared. They left behind a slight chill in the air, the perfect weather for an autumn wedding which was highlighted by the lovely changing colors on the trees. Shannon and Eric opted to see each other before the ceremony, allowing them to have some time together to share their excitement, as well as have time for portraits of just the two of them.
The ceremony was lovely, and on their way back up the aisle after getting married, Eric scooped up his new wife and carried her across the lawn. Shannon is a graduate of The University of Florida and showed her team spirit with her blue and orange garter and his and her coozies. The chilly weather made the reception atmosphere cozier, with guests snuggled up in blankets that the bride and groom had provided for them. The couple surprised their friends and family with a choreographed first dance that the whole bridal party participated in. The happy couple exited through a line of guests blowing bubbles.
