April & Alexander have a long history with NAYLOR HALL... their closest friends got married there in 2016, and it is where they first met. They even have a photo together in the rocking chairs from that night. Fast-forward four years later, and these two have fallen in love and decided to spend forever together. Where else would they get married but the place that brought them together (as a sentimental touch they even recreated the first photo they ever took in the rocking chairs). Both April & Alexander graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and Pi Day was the perfect day for these two self-proclaimed "math nerds". Atlanta wedding photographer A. THOMAS PHOTOGRAPHY captured their beautiful day.
Photographer Abigail tells us, "When I asked April to tell me what her favourite part of the day was, she said it was so obviously the fact that everyone she loved was able to be together. Only a few days after their wedding, the craziness that the Coronavirus has brought came to a head, and weddings were rescheduled. They got married on the last weekend they were able to, and she says it means even more now that they were able to spend time together with the ones they love. They had to postpone their honeymoon, but their wedding day was one to be remembered!"
April loves neutrals, especially white. When asked about her the design aesthetic for her day, she said, "With Naylor Hall as the backdrop, I wanted a classic yet romantic wedding in whimsical white... including all of my bridesmaids". We are big fans of the bridal party in all-white - it's such a fresh look and they looked elegant and classic against the historic southern home.
A huge thank you to Atlanta wedding photographer A. THOMAS PHOTOGRAPHY for sharing this beautiful inspiration with us. Abigail is a valued member of the Magnolia Rouge Vendor Guide where you can see more of her work. "Photography, for me, means capturing all of your life. It will not always be perfectly posed. It will not always mean that everyone is looking at the camera. However, it will mean that 10 years from now, when that groom is a new dad, or that bride is showing her little girl the great-grandmother she never got to know, those memories will still be tangible. And real. And messy. And beautiful." You should also check out this A Timeless Elegant Georgia Plantation wedding at Vinewood Stables by her or this interview to get to know more about her.
