Cathedrals and Willow Trees | {Atlanta Wedding Photographer}

She took his breath away when he saw her at the top of the aisle for she was absolutely stunning... but if you know Karen then you know her beauty shines from within. She's extremely thoughtful and so laid back. Their late July wedding day was beautiful with highs in the 80's and after the ceremony we were able to travel to a beautiful little park nearby for their portraits. The best part was that it's a park she has many childhood memories playing in after mass so it's not only beautiful but has meaning as well. The moment the dad sees the brides is quickly becoming one of my favorites and Karen's moment was one of the sweetest I've seen. She had every single bridesmaid in tears as they witnessed her daddy seeing her and admiring just how proud he was of her.

Their ceremony was at Christ the King  while their reception was at Villa Christina and they were up for taking a few more pictures in the garden.. some of which just happen to be my favorite!

Enjoy a sneak peek into this beautiful wedding day... you may want to have a couple of tissues ready just in case.
