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 […]



Casey and Wesley’s wedding at 550 Trackside in Lawrenceville, GA was the perfect way to end my 2017 wedding season! These two are so much fun and absolutely adorable together! From our initial conversations getting to know each other all the way through their engagement session at Krog Street Market they’ve kept me smiling and laughing! So I knew the wedding day was going to be a blast! Casey was radiant and overflowing with joy! She looked absolutely stunning which was only enhanced by her kindness and grace. And Wesley’s dance moves (that were what originally brought the two together) were worth all the hype! 🙂

The wedding day began with hair and makeup at the Hilton Atlanta Northeast in Peachtree Corners. I loved photographing Casey’s beautiful bridal details and meeting Casey’s bridesmaids and family! Everyone was so sweet and helpful, and I adored capturing the love in that room! Casey slipped into her gown, and everyone squealed in delight! Once ready, Casey headed down to the lobby for her first look with her Dad, and there was hardly a dry eye among us! We were blessed with gorgeous soft light for the girls’ photos at 550 Trackside! The unique gowns were complemented by the bouquets of red & pink blooms with greenery and berries! After hanging out at the hotel, Wesley and the guys arrived in style, and in true fashion, Wesley kept us laughing during his portraits as well!

Guests arrived and mingled at their tables before the ceremony began in the great hall at 550 Trackside. Under the chandeliers, Wesley saw his bride for the first time, and his reaction was priceless! After the ceremony, we took family and wedding party photos, and then we headed outside for some romantic night portraits! Afterwards, we headed back into the party where DJ CJ with Nice Entertainment kept the party going all night, and we got to see Wesley’s famous dance moves! It was a wedding for the books!

Casey and Wesley – You two are so much fun! I have loved getting to see and document your beautiful love story! Casey, your joy is contagious! Even seeing your giggles and smiles in the photos I can’t stop smiling. I love your kindness for others and the way you truly make those around you feel special. Wesley, you’ve kept me laughing from day one! I love seeing the way you love your daughter, and the way you go above and beyond for all those you care about. Thank you both for the privilege of capturing your beautiful day! Much love & appreciation – Carrie Joy

Aren’t Casey’s Badgley Mischka shoes absolutely stunning?!! 

Casey’s gorgeous bridal makeup was done by Paige Bradley, and I love Casey & Wesley’s rings on this card that said “King of my heart.”

Casey’s Sweet Elegance gown was absolutely perfect on her, and I loved the bit of sparkle from her earrings and hair piece!

One of my favorite moments of the day was Casey’s first look with her Dad. So many sweet, happy tears were shed!

This is one of my favorite photos of Casey – her joy is overflowing! Isn’t she stunning?!!

Look at that smile! I loved Wesley’s reaction to seeing Casey for the first time as his bride!

The warm lights from the cocktail hour were a beautiful ambiance for Casey & Wesley’s portraits!

Casey and Wesley shared the sweetest First Dance to kick off the party!

Congratulations, Casey & Wesley! I’m so happy for you guys!
