Jen and Adam | Atlanta Wedding Photographer

Jen and Adam got married this weekend at the beautiful Christ the King Catholic Church in Buckhead. Ben and I shot there last fall and loved everything about the church. From the amazing getting ready room for the bride to the gorgeous cathedral and stain glass windows, it’s just a beautiful place to get married! I can see why they are so busy and why so many people want to get married there!

We met Jen and Adam at one of our bridal shows this year. We had such a great time talking with them at the show that they decided to set up a consult with us. The morning we met for their consult, it had started snowing some and they had lost power at their place. I told them to come on over, warm up with us, and have a yummy breakfast while we met. I’m so glad they came! We had such a good time getting to know them and their history together: from meeting at Georgia Tech to Adam’s epic proposal in a HOT AIR BALLOON to Jen’s most unique engagement ring I had ever seen. It’s called a puzzle ring and comes apart when you take it off and shake it. I always am so confused when she does it and puts it back together.

Jen had a lot of family tradition in her wedding attire. She wore her Mom’s wedding dress of which her sister also wore at her wedding; she had her grandmother’s tiara she wore at her wedding; and a gorgeous sapphire ring from her aunt. People likened Jen to an elven fairy and even Princes Buttercup from The Princess Bride throughout the day. I totally agreed with those statements!

With the wedding at 2pm and reception starting at 7pm, we had a little time in the afternoon after the wedding to take pictures, so after we got the family formals done at the church, the wedding party along with Ben and me got to ride in the Tech Trolley for the afternoon! We went to Tech’s campus to take wedding party pictures as well as some couple portraits. We had a blast— but the fun doesn’t end there! A hungry wedding party and two photographers decided that Waffle House would be a perfect mid-afternoon snack before heading the reception. That’s right- WAFFLE HOUSE! Jen and Adam loved going there as students, so it was a perfect pit stop for us to eat and snap a few pictures! Definitely a first- and I hope not a last! 🙂

We headed over to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens where the reception was held and let the wedding party chill and hang out while we did the bulk of Jen and Adam’s couple portraits. The gardens right now have a Chihuly exhibit and it is gorgeous! Jen and Adam really liked the Chihuly’s, so I snuck out during the reception and snagged a few pictures for them of the gorgeous glass sculptures. At the end of the night, they left in the Wrambling Wreck as one of their groomsmen played the Georgia Tech fight song on bagpipes. HOW COOL!? Congrats to Jen and Adam! Thanks to allowing Ben and me to be a part of your special day!
