Grace + Tyler’s Ashton Gardens Wedding in Atlanta was such a special day! After a beautiful rehearsal dinner at Chateau Elan the night before, these two were rehearsed and ready.
Grace and her bridesmaids got ready at Chateau Elan before making their way to Ashton Gardens. Grace’s sisters and niece helped her into her gown before she shared a first look with her bridesmaids and dad. Their reactions were precious! No one’s reaction, though, was sweeter than Tyler seeing his soon-to-be wife for the first time. Overcome with emotion, Tyler’s face was, hands down, one of my favorites of all grooms throughout the years! It was such a testament to their love and it was so special to witness.
Right before Grace and her dad walked down the aisle, a bagpiper began began playing. Tyler watched her walk down the aisle with the sweetest expression on his face. The two exchanged vows before walking back down the aisle to “Scotland the Brave,” played by the bagpiper.
After the ceremony, guests made their way into the ballroom before Grace and Tyler joined the reception by way of the beautiful staircase. They shared a first dance to “All Your’n” before cutting the cakes– hers, a tiered white cake adorned with flowers, and his– an homage to the family business (Realtree Outdoors!)
After they cut the cakes, guests broke it down on the dance floor. Grace’s mom was AMAZING and her dad absolutely belted out a song in front of the whole party– it was amazing! A second line led guests outside for a sparkler send-off at the end of the night.
Grace + Tyler, thank you so much for inviting us to document your weekend! It was such a joy and we had the best time!
