Atlanta Athletic Club Wedding | Katie & John

Late Summer Wedding Featuring A Stunning Display of Orchids

Katie and John’s Atlanta Athletic Club wedding weekend took place in serene Johns Creek, Georgia last August. After postponing their vows due to the pandemic, Katie and John were excited to celebrate with their guests safely. The couple shared a private first look at a location that was near to John’s heart: on a stone bridge on the golf course he grew up on. Despite the threat of rain, John knew this was where he wanted to meet Katie on their wedding day.

Working with Brianne McMullan Events, Katie and John opted for a classic wedding look. I loved how the color white played a major role in the design. From the flowers to the invitation suite, every detail was there. The orchid centerpieces that donned the reception tables were unbelievably gorgeous, and one of my favorite details. The couple said their vows to each other surrounded by an indoor garden of orchids and white florals. Guests were then ushered to an al fresco cocktail hour on the lawn as the sun set followed by mingling and merriment at their stunning ballroom reception as they danced the night away.

welcome to my journal

This is where I love sharing recent weddings and sessions, my travels, and life with my husband, and our three pets. When I'm not capturing a wedding day, I'm often enjoying the outdoors with Garrett, playing with our pups, or finding a new place to call home for the weekend. My passion is telling love stories, and I hope I get to fall in love with telling yours.

let's meet!


North Beach was the perfect location for Nicole and Rob's Tybee Island session. While they played with their pup, Lucy, I simply followed. We ran together on the sand, not worrying for once about dirty hems or windy hair.

Christie and Brian strayed from traditional southern clichés and played into the modern lines and motifs of Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta throughout their wedding design – from their paper to their florals.

I was honored to be able to capture my second photographer's sweet family for her birthday and Mother’s Day present. We played on the grounds of Meadowlark 1939 and came away with the most lovely photos of her and her family.
