Theresa + Jay

We love, love, love this wedding at the Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center. Theresa + Jay are a vibrant, effervescent couple who were totally laid back about their nuptials. They wanted their wedding to feel natural, and to encourage the mingling of their families and friends in a casual and fun atmosphere. Done and done. These captivating photos, shot by David + Kendrick of Our Labor of Love, are just a glimpse into Theresa + Jay's relaxed and tender wedding celebration.

Theresa + Jay were married by a dear friend of the bride, under the pavilion outside the Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center, one of our favorite Atlanta gems. They mingled in and outside during cocktail hour, while enjoying passed appetizers like fried mushroom ravioli with a gruyere sauce and fried green tomatoes with a citrus sauce + caramelized onions. Guests were invited back under the urban pavillion as the sun set, to find their seats at one of Four Inch Fold's beautiful farm tables, then chowed down on family-style hermes salad, miso glazed salmon with a blueberry compote and rosemary + zinfandel marinated beef tenderloin with gorgonzola sauce.  The couple opted to forgo a traditional wedding cake, and instead indulged in mini desserts and a s'mores station over a fire pit. We are obsessed with this idea for a crisp fall evening wedding-- it was a huge hit. David + Kendrick hit it out of the park with these amazing images. We're in awe of the way they capture light in every magical moment, and we are in love with the way Theresa + Jay's personalities pop right off our computer screens in all of their photos. Just lovely. 

We're mildly obsessed. Congrats you two, wishing you all the best.


Great Expectations Shoot at Lullwater

We were recently asked to take part of this collaborative photo shoot, and we just about jumped for joy when we discovered the details and the creative minds working together for this Great Expectations inspired shoot. Our ultra romantic venue, Lullwater Acres, served as the perfect backdrop, and Modern Luxury assembled an all-star cast to put a twist on the Charles Dickens classic, and the upcoming blockbuster hit. The results? Well, we think they're pretty phenomenal, but you can take a look at these brilliant images from Heidi with Our Labor of Love,  and decide for yourself. 
From vintage glassware, to paper runners on the table, the Victorian details and luxurious accents of this shoot still have us oohing and aahing! Studio1658's vendors came together in a wonderful way, reminding us how amazing vendors can make our jobs that much more worthwhile.
