Kathleen & Paul’s Downtown Atlanta Wedding

Apr 9, 2019

I’m SO pleased to be sharing my favorite photos and moments from Kathleen and Paul’s downtown Atlanta wedding! These lovebirds were married in December and their wedding day was filled with laughter, joy and love. 

Kathleen & Paul’s Love Story

It’s funny how often I hear about couples who meet at a wedding! That’s the case for Kathleen and Paul. Kathleen’s best friend got married, and after the wedding there was some celebratory bar hopping. Kathleen’s group of friends and Paul’s group of friends joined together at a bar in Peachtree City. And that’s where their story began! 

Their romance grew and then while they were in Hilton Head to celebrate Paul’s birthday, he had a surprise for Kathleen as well! As the sun set, Paul popped the question. So sweet! I was so excited to be asked to be their downtown Atlanta wedding photographer.

Let’s jump in! Kathleen and Paul’s December wedding day was infused with Atlanta style, and it was a blast to be there to provide their wedding photography. It was a rainy, December day, but it didn’t dampen their spirits! There was love in every look, and so many genuine smiles. The wedding colors were a rich burgundy wine with accents of peach and pink, so there was such warmth to offset the gray skies.

A Joyful Ceremony at Our Lady of Lourdes

The ceremony at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church was so memorable. Any Mass at this church is upbeat and joyful, but Kathleen and Paul’s ceremony was really special. As Kathleen started her walk down the aisle, the way Paul looked at her took my breath away! When they were pronounced husband and wife, there was such an outpouring of love and happiness from the congregation. You couldn’t help but smile!

Rainy-Day Wedding Photos at Grant Park

The rain decided to give us a break after the ceremony and we headed over to Grant Park for some additional wedding photos. But even still, the rain persisted, sprinkling down! Kathleen and Paul were troopers to get a little wet for photos! But there’s something so romantic about rainy day wedding photos! I love the way they turned out. If you have a wedding planning Pinterest board or a rainy-day inspiration board, make sure to pin some of their rainy-day wedding photos!

Kathleen and Paul’s Eventide Brewery Wedding

Kathleen and Paul really wanted to do something local for their wedding reception, and luckily, Eventide Brewery is right near their house! The brewery has an amazing rental space for events. It was the perfect spot for their reception. Plus, the beers are great! The two lovebirds took to the dancefloor, sharing their first dance as husband and wife to “Dream it Possible” and as they danced, it was clear that they were alone in their own world. It was such a treat to capture them as they savored that moment together.
