Maria + Craig's wedding is a perfect example of how to tailor a wedding celebration into a reflection of your heritage, beliefs, and relationship. Soft hues, romantic fleurs, and vintage keepsakes makes it easy to imagine this ceremony and reception took place in the French countryside, but we're happy to say we didn't have to travel that far to achieve this amazing experience. Maria + Craig's ceremony took place at the absolutely breathtaking Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, on Peachtree, while the ethereal reception was set at Callanwolde, just a skip and a jump away from the cafe.
One of our favorite parts of Callanwolde may be its ability to transform from a center of visual and performing arts by day, to a fully functional event space by night, without ever missing a beat. Full of history, charm, and beauty, Callanwolde Fine Arts Center was a perfect match for Maria + Craig's wedding. Speaking of perfect matches, Katy Bee's Event and Design coordinated Maria + Craig's wedding, making sure every element was perfectly in place, and Victory Blooms floral designs were classic and romantic. These lovely local vendors shined bright on Maria + Craig's wedding day, and My Life Photography captured this seemingly effortlessly beautiful occasion in these images.
One of the themes of Maria + Craig's celebration was local fare, as it was important to the couple to support businesses in their community, and take advantage of seasonal and regional food. Their seated and served dinner menu consisted of several courses, starting with a local greens salad topped with fried vidalia onions and homegrown tomatoes. For their entrees, Maria + Craig chose a pepper seared filet with a burgundy demi glaze and our free-range chicken served with a bourbon + pecan butter sauce. And for dessert, as a nod to Maria's heritage, petit fours from Douceur de France and tres leches cake from Art By Liud were served.
Another wonderful wedding for the books! Merci to Maria + Craig for allowing SIMB to be a part of this heart-warming celebration!
