Classic Atlanta Wedding From Harwell Photography
February 7, 2011
By: eddye

Cara and Nick were married on August 7th 2010 at Greystone- a venue that overlooks a lake in Atlanta's Piedmont Park and has a fabulous backdrop of the Atlanta skyline for photos. In additions, a few very special moments were shared during their "first look" session in Atlanta's Botanical Garden.  Little Black Book Photography, Jeremy Harwell, took full advantage of both venues, and has shared these positively gorgeous images from this delightful day! We talk, pretty much every day about the details ~ and about making your wedding 'your own'. And while Cara and Nicks wedding is all that, it's so much more. You can see in each and every photograph the emotion, their love, and the joy this day brought into their lives ...

Cara and Nick are both music professors, so they had over 10 musicians comprised of their students and friends that performed the ceremony music. The couple chose an ivory, tonal purple and pewter palette that was incorporated into every last detail including all of the florals, linens and stationery. Guests enjoyed cocktails (featuring kir royales as the specialty drink which brought back fond memories of the couples travels abroad) and hors d'oeuvres on the terrace after the ceremony. As guests made their way inside for the reception, they found their seats at tables with names based on music terminology and instruments, of course! Speaking of music, the band came from Nashville and was one of Nick's long time favorite bands. He watched them play often when he was in school at Vanderbilt. The seated dinner featured a dual entree of Springer Mountain Chicken and braised Monk Fish. And there was plenty of dessert- a warm Molten Chocolate Lava cake; a favorite dessert at a restaurant the couple visited with their families, was served in addition to the lemon wedding cake and miniature sweets display.
