Audra & Taylor // The Club Wedding

Audra and Taylor's wedding was like a fairytale! Their ceremony was at the church she had grown up in, with their reception at The Club in Birmingham, Alabama. Audra had always dreamed of having her reception there over looking the city lights. And it ended up being pretty perfect! 

We loved ...

... How nervous Audra was before seeing Taylor! The closer the moment got, the more excited and nervous she was. Of course, once she was with him, she was instantly calm and all smiles the rest of the day. 

... Taylor during their first look! Taylor was at a loss for words when he saw Audra. It was so sweet when he said her dress, hair, everything, was more than he could have ever imagined. 

... Audra and her dad's first look! Having a moment with just her and her dad was so sweet and tender. It gave him a chance to take it all in before the day started. 

... Them and all of their family are dancers! Audra, Taylor and their entire family never left the dance floor. It was so fun to see everyone out there dancing, celebrating and having a blast! 

Congratulations Audra and Taylor!

Katie & Mehrdad // Atlanta Wedding Video

Katie and Mehrdad first met when her normal eye doctor was busy and she saw "the new doctor." So, when Mehrdad was ready to propose, he chose to do it during her annual eye exam. It just "happen" to be in the same room they had met. He asked her to close her eyes because it was going to get very blurry. She then opened her eyes and saw very clearly "Will You Marry Me?" Mehrdad was down on one knee with a "beautiful, custom designed ring" just for her! Katie and Mehrdad chose to get married at Ventanas overlooking downtown Atlanta. They wanted the city to be a key part of their wedding! The wedding was beautiful and the reception was a blast! You know it was awesome when they were literally shutting the venue down around them while they still danced. 

We loved ...  

... Their first look! Their first look was on the sidewalk next to Centennial Olympic Park. Mehrdad was taken back when he saw Katie and she was glowing! After having a moment to take it all in, they walked around downtown taking photos. It was so much fun! Especially with every screaming congratulations at them! 

... the Persian culture! There were so many beautiful Persian traditions throughout the day. The guests placed their hands on the rings as they entered the ceremony to bless them. During the ceremony, there was a special Persian portion that was translated into English from Farsi. Then there was the Knife Dance at the reception, it's not as scary as it sounds! 

 ... Their helicopter ride! Katie and Mehrdad left the ceremony and went on a helicopter tour of Atlanta during cocktail hour. This was the perfect chance for them to relax and let is soak in that they were officially married! They even had special permission to fly over the Braves game. Matt tagged along to capture their experience. He loved the helicopter ride and I loved that it wasn't me up there! 

... Loved their get-away car! Well, Matt loved it! One thing you may not know about Matt is he has loved the Acura NSX for most of his life. So, when he found out that Mehrdad's beloved NSX was the car they were leaving in, he was excited! 

Congratulations Katie and Mehrdad! Thank you for letting us hang out with you and trusting us to capture your amazing wedding!

EA & John // The Club Wedding

EA and John are both fitness enthusiasts and met at the gym after a brutal workout. They love living life together! Whether it is working out, traveling, spending time outdoors or worshiping, they want every experience to be together. EA and John were married in their church, Our Lady of Sorrows in Homewood, Alabama. They felt so lucky to have Father Muller marry them! They then moved the celebration to The Club overlooking Birmingham and it was perfect! 

We loved ... 

... Their first look! When EA and John looked at each other, the world melted away. They would be in their own moment, just enjoying each other and talking about the day. The first moment they saw each other, they just quietly breathed each other in. They were just in the moment.  

... How important family is! The day was not just about EA and John's marriage, but also the day EA because a mom to John's beautiful children. Family is a cornerstone of their lives. In addition to John's best friend, his wedding party included his father, grandfather and son. EA's sister was her Matron of Honor and she wore her mother's veil. 

... EA and John's reception! Their reception was at The Club on top of the world (or at least it felt that way). Which is appropriate, because they were on top of the world! In the center of the room was a live tree that reached the ceiling. It was their way of bringing the outdoors in.  

Their reception also marked our first taste of a Steel City Pop! We have heard amazing things about them and were instructed by EA and John that we must have one. If the couple says so ... :) And they were amazing! 

Congratulations EA and John! Thank you for trusting us to capture your sheer joy!
