The Big Fake Wedding - Atlanta, GA | Three Taverns Brewery - Decatur, GA

In January, I had the pleasure of teaming up with several other amazing vendors to be a part of The Big Fake Wedding!  This event is a bridal show in the form of a fake wedding where a real married couple has a vow renewal ceremony and reception and the guests/ brides-to-be get to experience the vendors in real life!

You can see the feature over on Ruffled Blog, You've Been Noted, and The Big Fake Wedding Blog!

We had so much fun and I can't thank enough my wonderful assistants that day - Danielle Hulsey and Taylor Doehrman of Taylor Dawn Design.

The incredible vendors, whose products and services you'll see below are top notch and you should check them out!  The theme for this event was Parisian Twilight.  All photography by yours truly.

Venue - Three Taverns Brewery in Decatur, Ga.  You may have been to this establishment for a pint, but did you know they do events too?

This beautiful registration table at the entrance to the brewery was designed by Kara Nash Designs.

There were four beautiful invitations designed by stationers for the event.  This first hand-painted suite with the Bridesmaids cards were designed by Sweet Art Paperie.

Venue Spotlight | Summerour Studio | Atlanta, GA

I was approached by Georgia Appleseed, a non profit, about shooting for their event earlier this Spring and was so glad to get to meet some of these people and photograph at the beautiful Summerour Studio.  This place is gorgeous.  The outdoor patio looks like something out of Tuscany and the inside has a charming rustic quality with large windows lining the walls with a view of the skyline.  I wanted to share a few photos from that evening just so you could see a small taste of this beautiful venue.  Also, quick shoutout to my lovely assistant, Kate, who helped be my wingman at the event!
