An Indoor Backyard Wedding in Atlanta // Arianna & Paul

This wasn’t the first time I’d hung out with Arianna and her family, so you can imagine how pumped I was when they chose me to photograph their indoor backyard wedding in Atlanta. A long time ago when I was newer to the wedding photography business, I shot their family session in their home (also where they chose to get married!). And, as Arianna’s father will happily recount, he decided to play a practical joke on me, the unsuspecting stranger. He limped out with wig on and cane in hand, acting the part of a feeble little old man, when he’s really anything but. He’s a CHARACTER and a half, and he loved telling that story again throughout the day. 🙂

It was REALLY neat capturing this family, four years later, and in the same spot, too! Documenting family moments and wedding moments is so important because from year to year everyone changes so much. I was more than honored to tell Arianna and Paul’s love story on this momentous day.

Arianna & Paul’s original plan was to hold the ceremony & cocktail hour outdoors, but this was smack dab in the middle of the rainy nonsense that made up Georgia’s Fall in 2015. The weather was a MESS. We did step outside AND ROCK the portraits {even in the rain!}. Their ceremony was perfection and was held indoors. It was truly an awesome ceremony, with laughs and sweet words and a surprise from the King of Rock-n-Roll himself. Yes. Elvis came to their rainy wedding! I love couples who roll with it! In the end what matters are the people you surround yourself with and not the weather. 😉

Arianna & Paul’s wedding had wackiness threaded throughout the day, from the gigantic handmade masks at the rehearsal dinner to the tons of photo booth props, light-up balloons, and streamers that came out on the dance floor, everything was a delight and I had so much fun at this wedding.


Thank you, Arianna and Paul, for trusting me to capture the real you! Interested in chatting with me about your wedding day photography?! Of course! Send me a message to get this party started!
