I’m an Atlanta based wedding photographer, but that doesn’t mean I am locked in Atlanta every weekend.  I photograph events all over the states, and in EVERY corner of Georgia.  One of my favorite areas of Georgia is Dahlonega.  It’s wonderfully beautiful, and peppered with fantastic wedding venues.  This recent wedding was at The Dahlonega Spa Resort.  Have a look!

The bride’s dress was finished by the hands of her talented grandmother.  She added details to the dress to make it just what the bride envisioned.  It was lovely.

My bride was styled by the fabulous Marissa Kaye.  This was a treat as Marissa and I met nearly 10 years ago on a commercial set, and I loved getting to catch up with her.  She is wonderful at what she does, and so much fun to have in the room.


I really love these sharp summer suits by Calvin Klein.  It’s the perfect answer to the Georgia heat.

The bride’s purple wedding details popped beautifully!

My bride had such a strong vision for her big day.  With the help of family and friends, a massive amount of DIY magic occurred.  Some of my favorites were the brooch bouquet, hand made veil, and the lace seat covers.  Everything was so well done, and I am the definition of ‘detail oriented’ so nothing was lost on me.  NO detail is too small.

Dahlonega really does provide such a gorgeous setting for a wedding.  It’s definitely an area to look into, especially if you are planning an outdoor event.

The bride’s vintage ring was super unique, and looked perfect on her.  🙂

This gorge cake decor is DIY done RIGHT!  I love this cascade of antique brooches and purple flowers.  Perfection!
