Lauren & Leslie | Downtown Brewery Wedding | Eventide Brewing

The Downtown Brewery Wedding

This was one of the more fun and interesting weddings I’ve been a part of. It started with a first look at Historic Fourth Ward Park however this first look was different than any other I’d seen before. After I got Lauren in position, Leslie showed up to surprise her in a Star Wars BB-8 suit. The reaction was great on several levels and it was a really sweet moment. Their downtown brewery wedding was at Eventide Brewing in Grant Park. I love brewery weddings because they’re usually self-contained and really interesting to shoot at and around.

I had a ton of fun shooting their portraits. They both were full of personality and weren’t afraid of any idea I came up with. That kind of trust I never take for granted. It’s not always easy being in front of a camera especially intimately. So when a couple lets me in I’m thrilled. It’s obvious in the photos when a couple is comfortable and in the moment. We shot in Grant Park and around the brewery. The wide array of beers they had made for a colorful backdrop (they tasted incredible too).

Nighttime at Eventide

I loved their reception. There was a toast from a member of the Atlanta Bike Coalition explaining their story and how they met. After the portraits, toasts, and all the reception rituals were over the dancing set in. Everyone took to the middle of the room with drink in hand. After a while I snuck them out to take some nighttime portraits of them. The sky was a deep blue and the flood lights on the venue allowed me to light them well even though it was so dark. They left on a tandem bike and rode off together. It was an awesome and unique end to a killer wedding.
