Bride on the steps of the Swan House at the Atlanta History Center

Katie’s Bridal Session at the Swan House at the Atlanta History Center in Atlanta, GA was the perfect way to end 2020. We met on what was one of the nicest December days I’ve ever experienced – with temperatures in the high sixties, it was incredibly warm & pleasant, even for a city that has […]



It’s always incredible to see the day you’ve been planning for months come together, and Taylor and Nick’s wedding was no exception. I’ve known Taylor for awhile now and have seen some of this journey she and Nick have been on, so it was incredible to see the pieces fall into place and the two lovebirds breathe a collective “Finally!” after officially becoming husband and wife! Since I shared a lot of the love story after their Engagement session (click to read HERE), let’s move on to the images!

Taylor and Nick, thank you so much for the privilege of capturing your wedding day! I hope the images always bring back amazing memories for you both! Taylor, you have such a sweet heart and I am so glad I got the chance to get to know you and now capture your beautiful wedding day. Much love and appreciation – CJ

Loved the amazing hair & makeup by Sadi Guice & Jil Coe at the Elite Retreat Salon in Kennesaw!

Taylor, your bridal look is fabulous!

Taylor’s gorgeous bridal details pair so nicely with the Tate House’s lovely interior.

Isn’t Taylor’s bouquet stunning? It was a family DIY project that incorporated antique broaches – some which belonged to her grandmother!

Isn’t Taylor gorgeous? I love her elegant decent down the staircase.

Both Taylor’s Dad and Stepdad helped escort her down the aisle. I love this moment when they helped her down the steps…

I love Taylor’s excited expression here! 🙂

Gosh, what a romantic moment between these two lovebirds! I adore this one…

Rather than have the girls carrying bouquets, Taylor had each of her bridesmaids carry a lantern. I love how they look against the girls’ dresses.

A friend performed “Your Song” by Elton John for Taylor & Nick’s first dance!

Nick totally reminds me of Gatsby in this one 🙂

This moment of Taylor and her father during the Father-Daughter dance just melts my heart…

Congrats again to the new Mr. & Mrs. Pelman!
