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!

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.
