Last week I had a pretty busy schedule which began with the wedding day of Alecia and Marcelo, May 11, 2012. Taking place at the Peachtree Club out on the terrace. The view is spectacular from the terrace, and what a location for a wedding, but it is completely overshadowed by the beauty of the bride. What a beautiful beginning for my workday. Beautiful brides always make my job easier. I knew from the moment I first met Alecia and Marcelo that this was going to be a party to remember. Even though their guest list was small, they made up for it with their party spirit. It has been a while since I have seen a crowd so enthusiastic. A lot of love for this couple. The day began with the bride and groom meeting for the first time, then a few gorgeous photos of just the two of them and on to the families in the lobby of 999 Peachtree. The lobby area made for a great spot for photographs, being shaded from the afternoon sun, and such a large outdoor area. To the rooftop for the ceremony, the quickest I believe I had ever seen,(lasting only 8 minutes) and on to the party. With the music roaring and the skyline darkening, the beauty of the lights on the buildings held a beautiful background for their first dance. As party favors of silly hats and glasses with flashing lights were handed out the party began and the music flowed to suit the crowd. As soon as it began it had ended too soon, as the last dance came about and they were sent off in a shower of sparklers.
I was honored to photograph the wedding day of Alecia and Marcelo, it gave me the opportunity to shoot at the Peachtree Club. In my nine years in business I am surprised I had never shot here before. I cannot wait to write my next event location article, it will surely be of the event location.
Congratulations Alecia and Marcelo! Have a long and beautiful marriage! I hope that you will cherish these moments I had captured for you, it was a blast!
