Sophisticated Atlanta Wedding at the Georgian Terrace Hotel

Where do I even begin with this sweet Georgia fête? Perhaps we should start with the Bride’s gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown or the stunning florals from Design House or beautiful ballroom at Georgian Terrace Hotel. Wherever you start, the images from Paige Jones will have you happy beyond belief, and it’s all waiting for you here.

From The Bride…May 17, 2014 was the best day of my life. I, the Georgia peach, was marrying the man of my dreams, the NY apple. I felt no venue was more fitting than the historic Georgian Terrace Hotel. I wanted my big day to be Southern and sophisticated and simply dripping in romance. The ceremony and reception were covered in several shades of white and gold with candles and flowers scattered throughout. It was beyond my wildest dreams. But while my vision of a wedding full of romance came to fruition, there was no lack of celebration! Dancing the night away with my new husband, family, and close friends in my perfect wedding gown will forever be in my memory.

Bright and Elegant Atlanta Wedding

I’ve got a soft spot for long time loves and this darling duo is no exception. After almost nine years of courtship they wed in a French-themed affair infused with a dash of Dominican flair and Southern cuisine. Every detail was saturated with purpose, including the colorfully crafted florals by Rittenhouse Design & Events and Love Like Weddings was there to capture every vibrant moment.

Romantic

From the Bride… We’ve been together for 8.5 years. Those years together as boyfriend and girlfriend may seem long to some but for me they went by so quickly. It’s like they say, time flies when you’re having fun. We’ve lived in many tiny apartments, traveled together and shared so many momentous occasions in between. He’s made me smile and laugh through it all (even if it causes a few smile lines and crows feet, it’s been worth it).

Jeremy and I met in NYC while attending college and the connection was instant. He was so vulnerable and unashamed to express his feelings. It was refreshing to meet someone so honest. It made it so easy to reciprocate that honesty. He’s my confidant and knows more about me than anyone in the world. Jeremy puts so much love and care into our relationship. So when he proposed to me it became my goal to create a celebration that was a physical manifestation of my love for him.

I decided to take the reins and plan my entire wedding. I wanted in on every bit of the wedding, from my mothers makeup to the flower girl’s shoes. Thank god for Pinterest! Since I wanted in on every single detail it was very difficult accepting help. But towards the finish line accepting help became necessary. For instance, I gave Jeremy the responsibility of picking up the rentals and put his mom and uncle in charge of the welcoming favors for out of town guests. I was so relieved and appreciative for any little bit of help.

We went with a French theme but made it so that we’d incorporate both our backgrounds. Jeremy is from the south, so we had red velvet cupcakes and half the buffet was Southern comfort food. I’m Dominican, so we also had Dulce de Leche cupcakes and the other half of the buffet was Dominican Cuisines. Basically, our wedding was a Foodie’s paradise.

The most memorable moment for me was walking down the aisle with my father and looking at all the smiling faces of our guests. It was surreal and overwhelming all at once. Overall, our wedding was a labor of love. But I couldn’t of made it a reality without the love and support of both our families and friends.

Adorable Atlanta Botanical Gardens Engagement Session

When this sweet, sweet duo landed their cute little selves onto my screen, they stole a little piece of my heart and tucked it away in this tiny, but love-filled gallery from Gracie Blue Photography. And let me tell you, it’s filled to the brim. Filled with ear-to-ear grins, gentle forehead kisses, hand holding amongst the tulips and one furry little white friend that just so happened to steal my heart, too.

From Gracie Blue PhotographyMelissa and Michael are such a fantastic couple. Any description I give wont do them justice, so here are a few of my favorite things they had to say about each other.

From The Groom…I love the way she looks out for everyone but herself. How she is more concerned about the welfare of others than her own. It fits well because she is the only thing I really care about, so it allows me to take care of her while she takes care of the rest of the world. That’s why we fit together so well.

From The Bride… I love how he’s not afraid of anything, and he truly believes that–no matter what happens in life–things will always work out in the end. I am definitely the worrier of the two of us, and he can always comfort me and convince me that everything will be okay. Watching how he lives life so fully and without fear encourages me to be strong and brave.

We can play normal in front of other people (for the most part), but when it’s just the two of us, all bets are off. We always seem to be making jokes and running around the house playing with each other. We’ve given up on saying any version of the word “hello” to each other after being apart for any length of time, instead opting to scream, “LOVE!” upon being reunited.
