The Hotel at Avalon | Alpharetta, GA | June 1, 2019
Cathy and Dan’s wedding was at the first of June and while I’ve already had their photo reveal session and delivered their entire gallery, I have neglected to share the blog post! I blame it on summer. With two kids at home full time and our schedule packed to the brim with stuff, I haven’t had much time this summer to sit down and blog! So without further ado, here’s Cathy and Dan’s gorgeous Hotel Avalon wedding!
I met Cathy some years ago when I was teaching at Autrey Mill Middle up in Johns Creek. I taught her oldest daughter, Catie, probably my third year teaching. I can’t remember now! Catie was such a great student and one that I kept in touch with years later. I didn’t teach either of her younger children after that, but I knew both Karin and Chapman. I loved getting to know this sweet family in the years they were at AMMS. Cathy and I got to know each other as well and became Facebook friends, so over the past years I have seen her and Dan together and saw they had gotten engaged and were to get married this year. I was so excited when Cathy emailed me asking me to shoot her wedding. My seven years at AMMS hold a special place in my heart. I have kept up with many of my former students and have recently seen some of them getting engaged (yes, I’m that old now to have my old 8th graders getting engaged!) and have wanted to shoot a wedding for one of my former students, so I was excited to have this connection!
I was so happy to be able to shoot Cathy and Dan’s Hotel Avalon wedding. Their ceremony was at St. Brigid Catholic Church in Johns Creek and their gorgeous reception was at The Hotel at Avalon. This was my first Hotel Avalon wedding, though I have shot a couple of weddings in which my brides have gotten ready at the hotel before. Cathy and Dan’s Hotel Avalon wedding was simply stunning! Brian from B Worley Productions knocked the florals out of the park. These were seriously some of the best floral arrangements I have ever seen! Party Nation got all of the guests out on the dance floor with their amazing band. I loved working with Dean and his team! All of the vendors simply rocked it out for a gorgeous and fun Hotel Avalon wedding!
Thanks so much Cathy and Dan for trusting me with your wedding day. I had the best time getting to capture your personalities and your special day!
I simply loved their rings! Such a gorgeous set together! So sweet to have Chapman walk her down the aisle! Dan is so happy! Cathy was happy all day long with smiles and laughter the whole day! I love this wall for a Hotel Avalon wedding backdrop. It is so much fun! See these gorgeous florals? B Worley Productions rocked it out!
