Melissa and Chris were married on the Swan House Lawn at the Atlanta History Center on May 8th.
Melissa and Chris incorporated so many wonderful details into their wedding day. Here are some of our favorites:
Chris had a "Groomswoman" and Melissa had a "Bridesman." I love it when couples break tradition to incorporate people/things/ideas that are meaningful to them.
The flowers! They were so bright- perfect for Spring. There were even lemons in the floral pieces adorning the stairway to the ceremony site- how fresh! I also love the color-coordinated ribbon Melissa found to tie off the boutonnieres and wrap the bouquets.
Pretty floral cones in the perfect shade of blue on Sheppard's hooks line both sides of the aisle.
After the ceremony and cocktail hour (in the Boxwood Garden), guests moved to the Grand Overlook Ballroom for dinner and dancing.
Chris and Melissa love to travel, so guests found their table assignments on luggage tags (which were also their favors) on a table accented with vintage suitcases.
Table numbers were designed to look like post cards and featured a picture of the couple on the front vacationing at one of the many places they have traveled.
The Bride's cake was gorgeous! Melissa and Chris play kickball, so the Groom's cake was quite apropos.
Guests- ok, primarily the male guests, enjoyed the cigar and cordial bar.
Custom lighting added a special touch. Guests felt like they were spending a magical evening "under the stars."
Congratulations Melissa and Chris! Thank you for sharing these lovely images with us, PhotoSynthesis!
