Happy Wedding Wednesday! We’re back with another real wedding feature for you. This time from a favorite photographer of mine, Atlanta based Matthew Druin. I love the detailed ‘getting ready’ shots of the bride and the groom. I think these are such precious moments to capture and see those moments leading up to the bride walking down the aisle.
From the Photographer:
“When a couple of creatives come together you know you’re in for something awesome! Lakeshia is a web designer and Andrew is a chief, so when if came to their wedding day, creativity played a big roll. They decided on an Atlanta wedding that included one of Lakeshia’s favorite color schemes, CMYK, and designed everything else around that. Their day started at the Le Meridien hotel where both Lakeshia and Andrew got ready. Dan and I started off with photographing the girls while Andrew and the guys played video games. There was a lot of joking around and laughter from both groups as the day progressed.
Lakeshia’s mom helped her into her amazing wedding dress once the hair and makeup was finished as Andrew started to get ready. Once the two were finished, we headed downstairs for their first look. Although Andrew never said anything, you could tell he was a little nervous and excited to see his beautiful bride for the first time. The chemistry between the two was glowing and never ended. We finished up some portraits in the area before heading over to The Atrium for the ceremony.
Once at The Atrium, guests were just starting to arrive as the sun began to set. When everyone was seated, the ceremony started and Andrew made his way to the alter. Lakeshia was soon escorted by her mother to meet Andrew and they were pronounced man and wife just as the last few rays of the sun filtered through the trees. The reception kicked off with a smorgasbord of tasty food and hilarious speeches. DJ Kenny of DJ Perfect got the party going and everyone on the dance floor. They also had Booth Riot! Atlanta Photo Booths with a never ending line of people packing in to have a blast.”
