Primrose Cottage | Roswell, GA | December 16, 2017
Karley and Reid’s wedding at Primrose Cottage in Roswell was my fourth one for the year there and my last one of 2017! I had such a great time with the two of them and their wedding party! As always, Primrose Cottage is a beautiful and wonderful venue to work at. I love everything about the historic home in my hometown of Roswell. They had the house decorated very pretty for Christmas and it added perfectly to Karley’s bouquet and color scheme for her wedding.
I met Karley back in January of this year at the Georgia Bridal Show and loved getting talk to her about her wedding to Reid. I was so excited when she and Reid met with me a few weeks later and then decided to book me for their wedding. We did their engagement pictures at Piedmont Park earlier this year and it made me even more excited for their wedding day. We had such a fun day! We started at Reid’s parents house in Johns Creek to take pictures while the girls got ready. We headed over to the Doubletree in Roswell where the guys got ready and got some pictures of them as well. Afterwards, we had Karley and Reid’s First Look set up at the Roswell Square. They had such a sweet moment between the two of them. I loved that they did pictures at a different location to add to their gorgeous set they ended up with from Primrose Cottage. After their First Look and some couple portraits at the square, we headed over to Primrose Cottage for more portraits and wedding party pictures. I loved getting to hang out with their fun wedding party! I truly felt like I made some friends that day!
Their wedding day was a day filled with lots of emotions. Karley’s mom passed away a couple of years ago from breast cancer and luckily Reid got to meet her and get to know Karley’s mom. It was a sweet day for them, but her presence was missed of course. In her honor, Karley and Reid donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. They had signs around the reception letting people know. I thought it was a sweet and amazing way to honor her and have her a part of their day. They also had a set of flowers set up next to Karley’s dad at the ceremony in honor of her mother.
We had such a fun time at their reception! Lots of laughter and dancing were going on! The speeches had everyone smiling and laughing at the memories and stories shared. The DJ had everyone on the dance floor for lots of fun dancing! I even got out there and taught Karley and others the Wobble! (I kind of do this often!) The night ended with a fun send-off with ribbons! Thanks to Karley and Reid for inviting my team to join y’all on your wedding day. We had such a great time! I loved getting to be a part of your special day!
Karley had two sets of shoes- these gorgeous Kate Spade floral shoes and another purple pair to match her wedding colors. I love it! I love her rings! Such a gorgeous set! I love the Christmas tree behind the dress shot. Such a beautiful inclusion of the season and Reid’s parents home! Her new initials! I love everything about this shot of Reid getting ready! First Look time! Loved the shawls and flowers together! Beautiful! Time for Dad to get a First Look as well! Lots of fun toasts and speeches! A few pictures at the end of the night with the twinkle lights!
Thanks to the awesome vendors who worked so hard to make their day very special!
