Modern Black Tie Wedding at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center

Callanwolde Fine Arts Center

Atlanta, Georgia

Callanwolde Fine Arts Center provided the perfect backdrop for Gabby and Micah’s Atlanta wedding. From the flourishing gardens to the Gothic-Tudor architecture, the romantic setting softened their modern style, creating a captivating aesthetic.

Mariah Caitlin Events designed the event and navigated the June rainstorms with ease and simplicity. If you are familiar with Georgia weather, then you’ll understand that our Summer weather is unpredictable. And I especially appreciated this as her team helped Gabby and Micah enjoy their day!

Sparkling champagne greeted their guests upon arrival. Their ceremony took place in the sunken garden with sunshine in attendance. And we all enjoyed an al fresco cocktail hour in the bespoke library and terrace at Callanwolde following. Dinner and dancing filled the rest of the evening in the main ballroom. And at the end of the evening, the band played one more song, “Purple Rain,” to send off our couple. It was truly magical, and the perfect way to end the day!

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!

Welcome to my journal! I'm Laura...

The Journal

Libby and Cars wanted a playful engagement session with lots of movement. We were able to time their session to enjoy the Japanese Tulip trees that bloom every year on Meadowlark’s grounds.

I met Kayla and Jon for their Montaluce Winery engagement session in January, and we had the best time on this chilly day. Even in the winter, Montaluce Winery and Resort has stunning views.
