Atlanta Botanical Garden Wedding Pictures | Wedding Venues in Atlanta | Spencer+Andric
We have been waiting for this Atlanta Botanical Garden Wedding nearly all year!!! Meeting Spencer at the Georgia Bridal show was meant to be. I knew almost immediately she was a Five Fourteen Bride!!! She was full of joy, laughter, and excitement for her wedding day! We had such an amazing time getting to know her and her groom, Andric at their engagement session earlier in the summer. It still feels like yesterday we were all laughing away at Stone Mountain Park!
Spencer wanted what we called a “Grand Elopement” if you will. She wanted a classic wedding feel but without all the fuss! As much as I love a good bridesmaid dress and group photo, no bridal party means more time with the bride and groom! Spencer got ready in the morning with her mom, Melody at the Atlanta Hyatt in Midtown. We then headed on over to the Atlanta Botanical Garden Wedding Venue where we met up with Andric, who was looking good in his navy Vincent Camuto suit!

Our bride and groom chose to have a first look and we are so glad they did! The Atlanta Botanical Garden Wedding Venue is a playground for all of your wedding portrait dreams!!! This place is absolutely gorgeous! As you scroll below you will see one of our all-time favorite First Look Reactions ever!!! Andric was over the moon excited to see his soon to be bride in her wedding dress looking absolutely stunning! Their elopement-style wedding was truly a dream!
Their sweet early afternoon ceremony was intimate and filled with about 50 of their dearest friends and family. After they spoke their vows to each other, exchanged rings, and shared the sweetest kiss, we all headed on over to the Long Leaf Cafe on site at the Atlanta Botanical Garden Wedding Venue for lunch and of course, drinks! What a joyful and fun family these two have! It seems we have more time to get to know everyone present when we are at an elopement-style wedding. Oh, and with the absence of a bridal party, all the portrait time gets devoted to bride+groom pictures! Win-Win! I could seriously photograph Spenser and Andrew every weekend for the rest of my life and I’d never get bored!
At the reception, Spencer and Andric handed US a GIFT!!!! Andric is an artist and manager at Houston Llew Studio in Atlanta. He handmade us a Spirit Tile (gorgeous piece of Art!) with a Dr. Suess quote inscribed on the edges that states: “You will know the true value of a moment when it becomes a memory”. With the gift was the most thoughtful card where they tell us we were “Hands down the best part of our entire wedding experience” that we “not only met our (their) expectations but far exceeded them”!!!
Can you believe that?! It’s always my goal to be the best part of our clients wedding experience and to serve them well, but when we know that they notice our dedication – it fills our hearts with joy!!! Spencer and Andric, thank you so much for trusting us to help you make your moments into memories! We are blessed to know you, can’t wait to watch your marriage grow, and pray a lifetime of joy and blessings over you both! (Insert kiss face emoji here) 🙂
