Intimate Wedding at Sotto Sotto with Jewel Tones and Dahlias | Caroline & Mike

Caroline and Mike’s intimate, “family-only” wedding at Sotto Sotto

Featured on The Knot

While Caroline and Mike initially planned a large wedding with all of their friends and family, Covid changed their plans. As numbers rose, they faced the decision to postpone or trim down their guest list to family only, and they chose the latter. While their numbers were small, Caroline and Mike knew that they still wanted to celebrate big. With the help of Pearl & Sky Events, they took over local Atlanta restaurant, Sotto Sotto, and created a magical display of details. From their color palette of jewel tones to the explosion of flowers, cheer filled the small event space.

From The Knot: “We wanted our wedding design to be focused on a bright, cheery color palette with tons of flowers that made the entire space look like the most perfect explosion of wildflowers. The bright and colorful florals were the centerpiece of our entire wedding design. And, with a smaller-scale event in place, we were able to incorporate an enormous number of personalized details such as commissioned flower vessels that we will treasure forever, block-pressed (and hand-sewn) cloth napkins made just for us by one of our designers (Kyah Willcox), and a ketubah that features a gorgeous arrangement of flowers dried from our wedding chuppah,” says Caroline of the many curated details that were woven throughout the flower-filled, jewel-tone wedding. “The overall aesthetic of our space very much resembled how I’ve always imagined Mary’s garden at the end of ‘The Secret Garden,'” notes Caroline of the flower-packed look.”

At the root of their decisions, Caroline and Mike’s goal was to create an incredible experience for their family. Due to the tough circumstances, this was a rare occasion for them to be together. And Caroline and Mike wanted it to be celebrated with abandon. Their joy for each other radiated throughout the day! Their laughter is contagious and a joy to be around. It was a pleasure getting to be a part of this event with them!

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.
