Georgia Aquarium Wedding

May 20, 2022

This Atlanta wedding at the Georgia Aquarium was EPIC. Whale sharks, jellyfish, manta rays, and an incredible water tunnel made this day unlike any other. And, unbeknownst to me, I shot the whole thing with a concussion. đŸ˜¶

(Back story – 2 days before the wedding, I got hit in the head with a golf club. I knew it wasn’t good, but I had no idea it hurt me that badly. I’m so thankful to my second photographer, and also to Jesus for helping me serve Christine and Robert as well as we did! They’re an amazing couple, their wedding was incredible, and we got some EPIC shots for them to remember their special day.)

Getting Ready at the Embassy Suites by Hilton, at Centennial Olympic Park

It was an early start to Christine and Robert’s wedding. Around 6 AM, the ladies were bustling around the room, getting their hair and makeup done, and prepping for the day ahead of them. Meanwhile, the guys were enjoying their morning…

I think it’s safe to say he was overwhelmed by his soon-to-be wife. Let’s be real: it was perfection.

The reason Christine always dreamt of having her wedding at the Georgia Aquarium is because she and her daddy share incredible memories here. Recently her daddy went to Heaven, so the space is even more precious to her. This was a very emotional, very special day.

Their wedding exit was so awesome. Robert (the groom) is a pilot, so Christine opted for paper airplanes at their exit since the Aquarium wouldn’t allow sparklers. I’m in love!!!
