Wedding at Rhodes Hall

To begin, this was the second wedding ceremony of Buket and Aaron as they had a ceremony in the bride’s native home of Turkey. They were both excited about the small wedding ceremony at Rhodes Hall. The wedding day began with getting ready photos of the couple at the W Hotel in downtown. I began with robe shots of the bride with her bridesmaids and some popping of champagne to get the day started. Additional prep shots of Buket were taken including her details and dress from Ivory and White Bridal Bridal Boutique. Afterward, I captured some getting ready photos of Aaron in his suit with some amazing window light. Finally, we departed to Rhodes Hall for the couple’s first look.

I’m a huge fan of first looks for many reasons, so I was excited to hear Buket and Aaron’s interest in seeing each other before the wedding ceremony. The couple had a moment to themselves and this was followed by completing all the formal photos. During the ceremony, the guests were serenaded by violinists from Mariwell Strings Quartet. After the ceremony the took advantage of the sun setting on the rooftop of Rhodes Hall overseeing downtown Atlanta. Party Time Productions provided music during the reception including traditional Turkish music for the guest to dance to. I wish you two the best and thank you for including me on your wedding day!
