We knew, that based on how filled with energy that Emily is, that her party would be just as energetic. We were right! What a fantastic celebration of quite the sparkly kid at the super cool Buckhead Theatre. We always love working with the phenomenal Sharon Fisher Events/It’s My Party. The décor (Yay, Barbara and Chris from Bold American) was beautiful and fun, DJ Rhythm kept the party going strong, the food (Bold, again!) was delish. We got to work with our friends from Blue Orchid Video and from Button It Up, who didn’t stop for a minute—seriously—the green screen was a huge hit. I loved how Emily’s three big brothers interacted with her. And, it was so clear how the family just adores each other. Congratulations to Emily and her crew!
It’s always a joy for us to work with families on events for all of their kids. We get to see them grow up and that is one of our favorite parts of our job. Kallie was just Andrew’s cute little sister a couple of years ago, and now she was the Bat Mitzvah girl. She has a smile that lights up a room, and we saw that throughout her whole party at the Piedmont Driving Club. It was just such a fun, warm celebration of a great girl! Keith from Horizon DJ ran quite the fun shindig, and all the guests had a ball.
Mazel tov to the “super Kallie fragilistic” bat mitzvah girl and her awesome family. We’ll can’t wait to see you in a few years at Aaron’s Bar Mitzvah!
Wow. Can I just say, wow? Sara and Brent’s wedding was just Wow. All the pieces were there…our friend, Helene Popowski, who creates a wedding that is unreal, Steve Bales’ wonderful team at Bold American whose décor was perfect, beauty and class at the InterContinental (always a joy to work with Brian Ettelman!), a super fun band with Living Large, and a couple who just adored each other from start to finish of this special day.
We also got to work with Rodica Lazarian, who can alter and fix and fluff a gown to perfection, along with our pals Donna and Paul from Dewitt Smith video. Always great to work with the best in the biz.
Sara has a very special connection with her Mom and Grandmother, and they had a special ladies dance during the celebration. Seeing the three generations celebrating together made me miss my own sweet Grandmothers!
The highlight was definitely the mutual adoration between Sara and Brent. You could spot it from miles away. We wish this wonderful couple a forever of happiness!
It is always so meaningful to us when we get to photograph a wedding that has specific cultural symbolism. We always learn something new, and the traditions never cease to move us! That was truly the case at Adora and Carlos’s breath-taking wedding at the St. Regis. Adora’s family is from Nigeria and we got to witness our first Kola Nut ceremony. It is a way to honor their ancestors, and show the couple’s willingness to help heal each other. Very meaningful and interesting! But, onto the wedding! Ahhh…the hotel is already so beautiful, and Tony Brewer worked his magic and made it even MORE beautiful. The décor was gorgeous. We loved working with Nicole Fantz from Peachtree Weddings. She ran a flawless party. And boy, did this crowd have a blast with Big Swing and the Ballroom Blasters. Such a fun band!
We love this couple together, they really are perfectly suited for each other, and we wish them a very long life together of joy and love!
Barrie and I have photographed our share of weddings, and if there’s one thing we’ve learned about the great ones–all it takes is one very happy couple surrounded by the most joyful of celebrations. We’ve been fortunate that the vast majority of the weddings we work are just like this. There’s nothing more gratifying than photographing the wedding of two people who just fit, who are visibly in love, and who look forward to spending their lives together.
We’ve also photographed our share of weddings that are a feast for the eyes–events graced with elegance and style in every direction; events where color, light, texture and every detail work in harmony–from the largest arrangement down to the table cloth, silverware and crystal.
On the most rare of occasions, though, we get to work a wedding that combines all these elements–a joyous celebration that is visually stunning. On March 3, we were privileged to work one of these events–the wedding of Lauren and Ross! And for many reasons, it is one we’ll never forget!
The photos here are only a small sample of the details from their wedding. We want to thank Helene Popowski of Helene & Company for pointing Lauren’s mom, Joan, in our direction And we want to express our compliments to Tony Conway’s crew at Legendary Events, the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead, as well as Helene for the creation of an event like none other! Let’s do another one of these real soon!
