Details of Katie + Zach's wedding were charming and sweet. Family quilts from different generations covered pews from their Grandparents church. In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, pound cakes made by family members are what Katie + Zach shared with their guest. Their summer wedding was full of personal touches that made their day so special.
Somehow magical doesn’t seem enough of a word to describe the Atlanta wedding of Zara-Gray + Bradley Fouts. But magic was surely there – in the details, in the energy of the happy day, in the love between two people newly wed. From beginning to end it was a picturesque foray into the trappings of what makes fine art wedding photography into – well- fine art.
Following preparations in the bridal suite in Atlanta’s St. Regis Hotel, bridal portraits and an intimate first look between Zara-Gray and Bradley took place outdoors at the Hobbs family home, where lush landscape proved to be a gorgeous backdrop to Zara-Gray's delicate blush pink bouquet and Allure ballgown.
It was important to the bride and groom that they exchange vows outdoors, and so the ceremony and reception commenced atop Midtown Atlanta’s Peachtree Club, where serene open sky views were the perfect companion to the city’s bustle and glow below. Fresh peonies and floral arrangements in shades of pink and watermelon accented with snapdragons and palm leaves brought the bride’s vision to life. Tunes by DJ Foxylectro kept the party hopping while guests enjoyed fare by the Peachtree Club and wedding confections by The Frosted Pumpkin. Zara-Gray and Bradley celebrated well into the night alongside the happy smiles of family and friends, making memories to last a lifetime and longer.

Brooke + Chris | Barnsley Resort in Adairsville, Georgia by Kristin Faye Photography
How Brooke + Chris met:
After meeting on Match.com, we started talking for a couple weeks over text. When we decided to meet for dinner and a movie, he was left thinking I didn't like him because I was really quiet. After the date, I sent him a text to say thanks for the date and he says he was shocked. He thought he would never hear from me again. He called the next day to ask me on a second date. My answer was "of course!".
Why Brooke + Chris choose Barnsley Resort:
I saw Barnsley on Pinterest and just thought it was beautiful. Chris and I had decided we wanted a "destination" wedding, but somewhere that would be really easy on our families to travel to. Once we visited Barnsley, we fell in love with it. It was the best decision. They were so great and easy to work with. They made my wedding weekend perfect.
Brooke's Favorite thing about Chris:
My favorite thing about Chris is his sense of humor. He can make me laugh harder than anyone on earth. Even when things are stressful, he can always lighten the mood and keep me smiling.
Chris's favorite thing about Brooke:
Her smile. (Haha, so I guess that's why he is always making me laugh-Brooke's side note!)
Their favorite thing about their wedding day:
We loved absolutely everything about our wedding day! Brooke: My favorite thing would probably be walking down the aisle. My niece did such an awesome job as flower girl and seeing Chris standing there smiling at me was such a beautiful moment. It was the perfect day.
