Lake Lanier has always held a special place for Katie and Kyrstyn, so it made perfect sense to get married by at the Ark on Lake Lanier. The two got ready together off and on until it was time for the finishing touches. At that point, they separated to get dressed: Kyrstyn in her bohemian-vibe dress and Katie in her dapper vest and pant combo. They kept their attire, and the whole day, simple and relaxed. The vibe really suited the two of them and their loved ones perfectly.
The Ark on Lake Lanier Wedding Day
A close friend of Krystyn & Katie’s performed the ceremony. And their daughter was one of the unicorn flower girl brigade, lending an even more personal touch to wedding. During their portraits, Krystyn & Katie chased the sunshine with me, laughing and exploring the property. The newlyweds were always down for even my most wild ideas, ending at the in-ground trampoline off the side of the house!
The wedding party was elegantly decked out in mustards and blues, a gorgeous and autumnal color combination. The reception took place in the main rooms of the Ark at Lanier. Guests could also enjoy the covered back porch, where there were heaters set up to knock the November nighttime chill out of the air. The evening was full of laughter, relaxing, and plenty of bonding time for both sides.
The Ark on Lake Lanier is a fantastic and enormous venue. It’s definitely big enough to house your entire wedding party and a good number of family members, as well! The backyard and huge tree Krystyn & Katie married under was gorgeous, the perfect space for a ceremony! And there are so many spots on the property for portraits – a photographer’s dream. The Ark has a gorgeous view of the lake, beautiful light streaming in through the trees, and plenty of room inside for a comfortable cocktail hour and dinner out on the covered porch. It has everything you need plus room for everyone!
