Southern Weddings Launch Party

Diane and I attended the Launch Party for Southern Weddings Magazine.  The event was held at the Dogwood Restaurant  in Atlanta.  I have been so inspired by the magazine's daily blog.  The official launch of the print edition is the culmination of two years of dedication by Publisher Lara Casey and her great team. The magazine is a joy to read, filled with of real life weddings and information you can use in planning the big day!  These are some of my favorite pics of Lara, Laura, Rachel, Kirstin, Lindsey and Katie Beth--an amazing group of talented and dedicated young women.

Renee & Stuart

Renee and Stuart were married in Auburn, Alabama  The ceremony was held at Auburn United Methodist Church and the reception followed just down the street at the Greystone Mansion.  The heavy rain made it necessary for the bridesmaids to wrap Renee in plastic as she left the hair salon!  However, the rain was no match for Renee's warm smile.
This was our first wedding in Auburn and we loved it--such a charming little village.

Cassy & Leonardo

Cassy and Leonardo met while students at Georgia Tech.  They held their ceremony in the Chapel at Glenn Memorial Church in Atlanta.  The reception followed at the Houston Mill House.  As they were leaving the reception, guests showered them with Lavender.  The couple now makes their home in Houston, TX.
A few favorites.

Gagan & Shivram

Gagan and Shivram were married at the Atlanta Sikh Gurdwara and their reception followed at the Northwest Hilton.  We started with the couple on Friday at Gagan's parent's home.  It is Indian tradition for the groom and his family to travel to the bride's home to meet her family. Both families celebrated and exchanged gifts.
The next day I was able to capture the Mehndi ceremony.  This is a tradition where the bride and the female members of her family have their hands and feet painted with henna. 
Sunday...Wedding Day!  Shivram arrived at the wedding site with his family and friends in a procession known as a Baraat.  The ceremony that followed was breath-taking and colorful, steep in Indian tradition.
These are a few favorites.
