Wow. I sat down today and made a list of the manymanymany posts I need to blog. I’m rapidly finishing up my editing from my busy October, so I figured I’d take a moment between jobs and do a little blogging to chip away at the pile.
This one’s from waaaaay back in June. Sarah was one of my first clients and booked me for both her boudoir session and rehearsal dinner coverage. I’ll forever be grateful she allowed me to pretty much experiment on her and help me build my portfolio. By the time her sessions came around (I’m telling you, she hopped on board EARLY), I had honed my craft tenfold. I hope every day of my new career that clients consider me a good return on investment.
So anyhoo, I traveled up to Atlanta on a Friday to capture Erich and Sarah’s rehearsal and dinner at the Peachtree Christian Church and Georgian Terrance. These two locations are FABULOUS choices for wedding venues. Look for yourself!
Erich and Sarah very wisely booked a trolley to transport their guests from the hotel to their wedding church venue. Having all the attendants accounted for in rush hour Atlanta traffic is PRICELESS.
Once inside the church, I took a moment to stand in awe of the gorgeous architecture and stained glass mosaics. How gorgeous is this church?!
After a little family catch up, the rehearsal got underway.
Sarah’s dress is almost as fabulous as she is. And the shoes? I diiiiieee.
I obviously wasn’t the only one smitten with this church.
Quick snapshot of the soon-to-be-married couple on the trolley before heading to the Georgian Terrace. Which one do you prefer? Color or B&W?
Don’t they make a handsome couple?
Soon, it was time for the toasts. Erich’s dad just about brought the roof down. I don’t even know their family and couldn’t help laughing like an idiot. I can only imagine how funny his speech was for everyone else!
Sarah’s sister served as maid of honor while Erich’s childhood friend was the best man.
That night was also Sarah’s father’s birthday, so Erich’s family made sure to arrange a special little tribute to him.
This group is a goofy bunch. Just scroll to see what I mean.
Guests ended the night with a gift bag from the couple. Erich’s family is German and makes their own beer, so everyone got a custom bottle. Does it get any more awesome than that?!
Sarah and Erich, I know it’s been months since you two tied the knot, but I just want to give my congrats one more time. You guys are the best and I was so honored to be a part of your wedding weekend!
