At the beginning of last year Audrey and Harold were featured for their engagement session at Piedmont Park and the Georgia Tech campus. We enjoyed the time hanging out with them and this made us even more excited about their wedding on December 19th, 2015. Months passed and it was finally time for these two to become one at the Crowne Plaza Midtown in Atlanta, Georgia.
The First Look at Crowne Plaza Midtown
We always love a first look for a variety of reasons and our previous blog posting can contest to that. Audrey and Harold decided to do a first look to have a special moment to themselves prior to the ceremony. The spot we selected was perfect and within walking distance of the Crowne Plaza. With Harold’s anticipation building every second, Audrey followed down minutes later. With Harold’s back facing Audrey, we took a couple of memorable photos before the reveal. Once Harold finally turned around to see his future bride, his reaction was priceless. As a wedding photographer this is the type of emotion we live for!
The Crowne Plaza Midtown offers a breath taking view of the city on the 25th floor. As the guests took their seats, the sun began to set on downtown Atlanta. The officiant Rev Dawn asked the crowd to stand as Audrey walked down the aisle with a gorgeous dress from Anya Bridal. During the ceremony there where plenty of special moments between the two and a lot of emotion from the families. A unique part of the wedding was the hand fasting ceremony. This involved the wrapping of a large ribbon around the couple’s hands while a poem was read by the bride’s aunt.
After the conclusion of the ceremony and cocktail hour, the couple made their way to the reception space. Audrey and Harold’s had their first dance to Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheehan. The music throughout the night was provided by Ted Crowder of the Atlanta Wedding DJs. The couple and all the guests had a night to remember and this is evident through the photos.
The newlyweds had a unique formal exit with the help of their guest. Two lines were formed, the guest combined hands with the person on the opposite side, and the couple made their exit underneath the energetic crowd.
