Ada & Marlon

Ada actually found me by searching for an Atlanta elopement photographer, and I am so glad she did! She and Marlon had a beautiful intimate ceremony on the terrace of The Millennium Gate Museum. If you have ever been to the Atlantic Station district of Midtown, you have definitely seen this amazing arch, which is based on the Arch of Titus in Rome. They were married on a mostly overcast Friday morning back in August, which ended up being perfect for their 11 a.m. wedding ceremony!

I love that their daughters gave them their rings.

After that, they did a family sand ceremony. So perfect for this new blended family! ♥

To close their ceremony, they jumped the broom!

Nothing but big smiles for this new Mr. and Mrs. ♥

Once the ceremony was over, Marlon, Ada, and all of their wedding guests went out on the oval lawn for a group photo!

I took several photos of the bride and groom with their close family and friends, as well as these photos of them with their beautiful children. ♥

And then it was time for photos of just the bride and groom! ♥

The Gate Museum has so many great spots for wedding photos though! The columns off the oval lawn …

And, of course, the arch! Looking at their wedding photos, you would never guess that it was just a 2-hour event. Ada was even impressed and sent me this email after seeing them:

“Corey those photos were absolutely amazing!!!  It’s hard to believe you were the only photographer.  You did a wonderful job capturing our day, the photos literally brought tears to my eyes! Thanks again!” I love receiving compliments like these from the brides and families I photograph!

Congratulations again, Marlon and Ada! I am so happy for you two and thankful I could document these memories for you. I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness! ♥
