The Corner District | Ballground, GA | June 9, 2018
Allie and George’s wedding was so much fun! I got to meet the two of them for the first time back in January after Allie and her mom met me at the Georgia Bridal Show. George and Allie came over for a consultation and I immediately fell in love with the two of them! I had so much fun hearing their story of how they were introduced by friends while Allie was in college out at Anderson University in South Carolina. George has spent the last four years at The Citadel and recently graduated. Because he was in school in Charleston, we only had a chance to do their engagement pictures in May just a few weeks before the wedding, but that didn’t matter! We had the best time and had a lot of fun hanging out a few weeks (technically 5 weeks) before the wedding!
Their gorgeous wedding at The Corner District was perfect! I have loved The Corner District and have wanted to shoot here for a long time, so I was very excited when I heard this is where Allie and George were getting married. I know the family who runs the venue, so I was excited to get to take pictures there for that reason as well! If you like rustic brick, then The Corner District is definitely the place you want to get married! This place has tons of it! From the getting ready space for the girls to all around the venue. Tucked in the downtown area of Ballgound, GA, The Corner District fits in perfect with the historic downtown area and the whole area makes for a great backdrop for pictures! We definitely took advantage of it all!
I loved all of the touches from the day. Allie’s dress was STUNNING. I was a little obsessed with the back of her dress. I thought it was the best part of her dress. She also wore a piece of her great-great grandmother’s dress pinned into her dress. Allie’s mom told mer she wasn’t sure if it was great-great or great-great-great, but either way, it’s a very special piece of family history! George’s groom’s cake was epic. His family is from Mexico, so the cake was done up in perfect Mexican style! Don’t miss out on looking at this cake!
Allie and George opted to not do a First Look, but they wanted to do private vows just the two of them. I found this perfect spot for them to hold hands, talk, and for Ben and I to get good shots of their moment happening. It was such a sweet moment just the two of them. I love it when my couples do private vows to each other without others around to hear what they say. I’m there, but honestly, I’m so busy taking pictures that I never pay attention to their private moment. It’s one of my favorite parts of their sweet day!
Allie’s Dad performed the ceremony and did such a good job! I was impressed it was his first ceremony; it had always been his dream to do her wedding, so when she asked him to do it, of course he said yes! We had an amazing time at the reception. Their music was a fun mix of American and Mexican that got everyone up and dancing, so much so that we were all hot and sweaty by the end of the night! Talk about a fun party! Thanks to Allie and George for trusting me with your beautiful day! I had so much fun! You two are simply the best!
