Married! Marianne + Dave

It has taken me way too long to try to narrow down the images for this blog post!  But enough is enough, and I am forcing myself to STOP, and share these 43 beautiful moments from Marianne and Dave’s wedding day.  Hooray!

I started with Marianne at Twelve, where her friend Mimi was styling her hair…

Just a couple blocks away, Dan was with Dave, who was… checking out his butt in the mirror?  I guess it’s not just us girls!

It was an easy walk on a PERFECT Saturday to get to Atlanta FUMC

The next 3 pictures make me really happy… I was particularly fond of Marianne’s Angelina gown…

Marianne and Dave decided to see one another before their ceremony — our favorite!  This beautiful corner of the church balcony was a great, private spot to see one another all dressed up in their wedding clothes for the very first time.

My angle…

Dan’s angle…

I set up this shot for a completely different purpose, but Dan got one of my favorite pictures of the day…

We wondered out into downtown Atlanta for some photos…

The stunning floral designs were created by Tulip

Atlanta FUMC is right on Peachtree St. downtown, so there’s always plenty of traffic.  This Saturday was extra-busy, though, because the BET Music Awards were in town!  M&D heard LOTS of encouragement shouted and whistled from the cars that crept by!

One of the precious little grandmas…

Marianne and her mom…

Marianne waiting with her dad before the ceremony…

She totally broke down as she walked down the aisle.  Nothing makes me tear up like watching couples cry at their weddings, I guess because Dan and I bawled our eyes out at our own ceremony.

Marianne and Dave gave us our first opportunity to shoot at Ventanas, an AMAZING space overlooking the Atlanta skyline.  You know what else is amazing?  A wedding where you get both beer AND little hamburgers!  (Kudos to Proof of the Pudding for the scrumptious food!)

First dances…

I love this moment… I guess it just says so much about a mom when you see her smiling patiently while her son and one of his friends acts ridiculous!

Marianne’s dad surprised everyone with a SWEET slideshow of photos from her and Dave’s growing-up years.  I especially love the shot of Marianne’s grandmother peeking around a column to watch the video!

One of Ventanas’ most fabulous features is the helipad!  I was more that a little petrified, being on a rooftop with no barrier between me and certain-death (okay, so I’m kind of scared of heights), but Dan dragged me up there, and we got some beautiful images right at twilight…

Because the evening was so lovely, the guests spent most of the night on the rooftop patio overlooking the city…

CAKE!

Ending the night…

Congratulations, Marianne and Dave!  We LOVED photographing your wedding!  Thank you so much for sharing your celebration with us!

This wedding was made possible by the fabulously WONDERFUL Amy Diloreti.  We heart you, Amy!
