Along with all the full 8 hour weddings I do, I do quite a few of what I call mini weddings or small weddings. These typically take place during the week (although not always) and often only consist of me, the couple and the officiant. These small weddings are for clients who want to get married and have great photos and documentation of that, but for whatever reason don't want to do the full wedding. They have their own particular sweetness and I always feel honored to be a part of them. I've done a few of them of late and I'm going to showcase a couple on the blog to give ideas for those looking for a little something different with less coverage than the traditional wedding.
This was one particularly fun for me because I know the bride and groom. That happens to me periodically and it's always special. My husband Matt works in the wine industry with both Ashley and Anthony and we've watched them meet, dance around each other a bit and then pair up as a really great couple. They got married at the Decatur Courthouse by Judge Cash, who was simply wonderful. She took time with the ceremony and really gave it the importance it deserved. If you decide to get married in Decatur, be sure to ask when she's performing the weddings! We then shot some cute portraits in front of the old Decatur Courthouse and then went to Leon's for a toast of champagne that Mike Gallagher brought out for the happy couple.
A week later, they had a wonderful reception at the home of a client and friend in Buckhead. If you have additional questions about the mini weddings, please don't hesitate to give me a call at 404.210.0879 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
