Robert + Adria | Atlanta, GA - A Match Made In Heaven

Thursday, March 12, 2009

What a beautiful day Saturday was! Not just because of the weather but because of the wonderfully emotional wedding I photographed. I knew that after my trip to Cincinnati for Robert (NFL Bengals Defensive End) and his fiancé Adria's engagement session, photographing the wedding would be an experience. They both have such warm personalties and can't help laughing when together. Add in their cute little son and you have the picture perfect family to work with.

The location of the ceremony was in Midtown Atlanta at St. Mark UMC and the reception was at The Four Seasons Hotel. Wedding planners Randi and Chandra (Profile Sports) along with my friend Cate (Four Seasons) coordinated the day while Legendary Events handled the florals, decor, and lighting. Kudos to all of them for helping to make the day truly spectacular. After the ceremony the couple was transported up Peachtree Road by horse and carriage. Being the adventurous person I am, I jumped in the buggy with them to continue shooting!

To say that details were important to this couple is an understatement. Adria wore a beautiful Mia Solano wedding gown for the ceremony and then changed for the reception into a captivating dress by La Sposa. Everyone sighed just at the sight of her. Robert sported a custom tailored suit made especially for a man of his stature. Most of the time I had to stand on a stool to photograph him! The color purple echoed throughout the wedding and I used warm hues from the stained glass and reception up lighting to capture moving portraits - my favorite! The DJ was phenomenal and had guests dancing late into the night.

Congratulations Robert and Adria! It was an honor to meet your family and friends. Thank you for entrusting my team and I to document your most precious memories.

Truly amazing!!! Thanks so much to you and your team for making their day so special and bringing a magic to their memories! You are the best! Chandra
