I don’t know about you, but Friday and a heaping dose of pink go together hand in hand in my book. And that’s exactly what Brita Photography is serving up for us this afternoon. Not only is this soiree sweetly covered in blush galore, but it’s pretty freaking adorable to boot. Did you see Jackson, the couple’s golden? He’s hanging out with the rest of the cuteness that the gallery holds.
From Brita Photography…We’re excited to share Emily & Stephen’s romantic outdoor wedding with you! I met Emily and Stephen (and their sweet dog Jackson!) for the first time at their engagement session. They were so easy going and natural in front of the camera, and I couldn’t wait for their wedding day. Emily and Stephen incorporated blush pink and gray colors into their wedding day; the bridesmaids picked out their own dresses at different stores, making the pictures so unique and beautiful. I love that the colors were the same, but the styles were completely different and matched each bridesmaids’ personality. The groomsmen coordinated with matching blush ties, gray suits, and fun pink socks!
I met up with Emily and all her bridesmaids in the bridal suite of Kimball Hall as they finished their last hair and makeup touches. Meanwhile, Nick was with Stephen and his groomsmen already getting a start on pictures. It was such a special day, and the love that Emily and Stephen share is the sweetest. Stephen and Emily absolutely adore each other and their emotion came through in every moment. They were such a joy to be around all day and I constantly caught myself smiling behind my camera (especially when editing their pictures)! I’m so happy that they did a “first look” because we were able to capture so many beautiful portraits around the gardens. They even brought along their sweet pup, Jackson, who wore the cutest pink bow tie! I hope you enjoy their beautiful wedding as much as we loved being a part of it!

I’m so excited to bring you this next Biltmore Ballroom wedding, I want to just skip right over the intro. But, a few quick words to sum it up? Opulent. Lavish. Luxurious. Elegant. Timeless. Stunning. I could seriously go on and on, but then it’d take longer to get you to the gallery. Check out the shots from Kaitie Bryant and you’ll know exactly what I mean. Go!

From The Bride…I wanted to be able to look back at our wedding in 20 years and still love everything I chose, so I opted for a traditional ceremony, a neutral color scheme, and no first look! We chose to have a band and a full bar at our reception because although we did want our wedding day to be elegant and timeless, we definitely still wanted our guests to let loose and dance!
From Kaitie Bryant… Austin and Sarah’s wedding was the most elegant wedding I have ever shot. The Biltmore Ballrooms remind me of something you would expect to see in a French palace like Versailles, and the elegance of both the Cathedral and the Biltmore were a perfect fit for Sarah’s vision of a timeless wedding that could be appreciated 20+ years down the road. They both were radiant and the details of the day were simple and classy and elegant. Austin and Sarah did a great job incorporating their Alma Mater, Georgia Tech, by having the Tech Trolley for transportation and stopping to take some pictures near the main Georgia Tech sign.

I’m in complete agreement with Buffy Dekmar‘s take on engagement sessions: they should tell a story. They should tie something in that is meaningful and true to your and your love. That’s exactly what these two sweetly smiling love birds did. Keep reading for Buffy’s sweet words about the couple and of course, peruse the beyond beautiful captures.
From Buffy Dekmar Photography…To me, engagement photos are more than just a pretty collection of pictures. I like for engagement photos to tell a story, to draw on new or old memories, or to speak to the principles and values that a couple upholds together. Natalie and Will wanted their engagement photos to be both meaningful and memorable, so we chose to do two sets, both centered on important places and events:
The first set was taken just before their engagement celebration at LaGrange College, where Natalie’s parents were married years ago. Natalie wore a pink Kate Spade party dress, and showed Will around the college campus in the center of her hometown. Then we headed to the alumni house, where friends and family awaited them ready to celebrate their engagement with good food and good music!
For the second set of photos, we chose a more private and personal spot: Natalie and Will’s house in Dublin, Georgia, which they are in the process of renovating as their forever home. The estate sits just down the road from the home where Will grew up (and where his parents have made their loving home together). The empty house, with its hearths and warm window light, nods to a bright dreams for their future together in that very place.
These sets of this precious couple’s engagement photos are important pieces of their story, both because of time and place and because their relevance to a family history of loving commitment. My hope is that these photos will serve as not only a personal collection of art, but also a reminder of promises, values, and strength of spirit as Natalie and Will begin a new life together in Dublin!
