The couple’s Biltmore Ballrooms wedding in Atlanta happened at the end of our story, so let’s start at the begining. Some may call it kismet or fate. I’m going to call it serendipity. Somewhere in the cosmos the stars of the universe aligned bringing these two beautiful spirits together, creating something simply magical. Gina and Chris, unexpectedly, met while both were picking up take out at a restaurant in Duluth, GA. After convincing Gina to stay a little longer to continue their conversation, that one conversation turned to many more.
These two kindred spirits eventually came to share more than just take out, and found themselves sharing I Do’s and a life of love and happiness. They both prepared for the big day at Atlanta’s Georgian Terrace Hotel.
Enamored by its architectural beauty of its sanctuary, Gina and Chris wed at Peachtree Christian Church a midtown Atlanta landmark. As her eldest brother walked her down the aisle, in her astonishing Ian Stuart gown, Gina absolutely glowed. Her parents weren’t there physically, butGina knows they were smiling down from above and could feel their love covering her on this momentous day. As she approached the altar and looked into her sister’s eyes, she could see her beloved mother looking back at her in approval and joy.
The reception was held at the Biltmore Ballrooms Georgian Room, where the artistry of the walls and ceiling coincided perfectly with Gina and Chris’ Parisian theme. During cocktail hour Gina’s nephew’s son masterfully wowed the guests with his rendition of O’Perfect Love on his viola. A saxophonist continued to serenade the guests with melodic tunes throughout the evening. The estate table adorned with white, purple and green flower bouquets and lighted candle sticks running down the middle and cascading over the side was the focal point of this grand Ballroom at the Biltmore Ballrooms.
I love the love that these two share. It is pure and genuine, and can be felt by everyone in the room. It was such a pleasure being a part of their day and capturing their story.
