What a great wedding. Becky and Anthony’s wedding was exactly what I dreamed of when I was a kid. They had the Atlanta Botanical Gardens privately which is my absolute favorite venue in Atlanta. Becky chose the Trustee’s garden for her ceremony. It was the first wedding I have ever seen in the round which was awesome. I could see so much pride and happiness in Becky’s parent’s eyes, a tear on her made of honors cheek, at the same time I could see Becky’s smile when she looked at Anthony. The ceremony was surrounded with lush botanicals. Not only did I feel happiness for the couple but I also felt overwhelmed by being in such a natural beautiful setting.
The weather was a bit temperamental. It rained before the ceremony and right after. The rain brought the green out in the trees making it only more picturesque; it also brought overcast (which I love for pictures). Right after the bride and groom left the ceremony it started up again. A woman from the Gardens whispered in my ear “I have opened the Orchid Garden for pictures”. I was so happy I hugged this woman. If you haven’t had a chance to see the Atlanta Botanical Gardens orchid garden, I highly recommend it. It is one of my favorite places in the world and an amazing setting for photography.
I have a lot of great memories from this wedding. The unbelievable dress, the very humorous maid of honor, the trash TV, the very “large” sculptures, the orchid garden, the shrimp and grits, as well as the very large smile that didn’t seem to leave Becky’s face.
