Hello there beautiful people and Happy Wedding Wednesday! Today’s real wedding is from one of my favs here in Atlanta, Matthew Druin. And if you know me personally, you know I adore non traditional wedding venues. Kevin & Alicea were married at Venue 92 which features a beautiful garden, exposed brick and duct work and polished cement floors. See their love story unfold below.
From the Photographer:
“Alicea and Kevin met by chance one day at a local mall. While Kevin was chatting with one of Alicea’s friends about work, she decided she would ask him a few questions and get his number. Alicea reached out to Kevin and then it finally hit him that she was wanting to get to know the real him.On the big day as Alicea and Kevin got ready, both were relatively quiet, but you could tell they were filled to the top with emotion. Alicea sat nervously with a smile as her make up was carefully applied and as her bridesmaids prepped her dress in the background. A few jokes were made between Kevin and the groomsmen and laughter filled the room.The ceremony was outside and hot, I mean safari hot, and paper fans moved quickly through the thick air. Once the ceremony started, no one seemed to notice the heat any longer as Alicea made her way down the aisle with slight tears in her eyes. Kevin looked down the asile with slight tears in his eyes as well until they met at the alter. The ceremony was short and sweet and included a candle lighting in memory of Alicea’s mom.After the ceremony everyone quickly made their way inside. Alicea and Kevin joined me upstairs where we cooled off while using some of the venues amazing space for some studio like portraits. We then headed back outside for some quick portraits around the property, before returning to start the reception.The reception included a lot of touching speeches and a few tears from family and friends. Of course everyone was excited to eat and enjoy the variety of tasty cupcakes before making their way to the dance floor to cerebrate.”
