For the past few months, I was planning a styled shoot with a fabulous team of vendors. What started as a small idea transformed into a gorgeous, modern minimalist wedding inspiration shoot. Or at least, it would have, had it not gotten rained out.
When I say “rained out,” I don’t mean it sprinkled. I mean it was a full-on downpour here in Atlanta. That morning, I had a senior session at Georgia State University and the weather held out for us, so I really thought we were going to be able to pull it off. Nevertheless, Georgia weather lived up to its reputation and POURED on us right as we arrived at the park for set up.
Meanwhile, hair and makeup was already underway down the street, I had the Ginger Rose Floral Design team along with a few gorgeous floral arrangements piled in my car to stay dry, and unfortunately, we just had to call it. It was such a bummer.
I knew that I didn’t want the hair and makeup, dress, and bouquet to go to waste, so I thought about nearby covered locations that we could use as a stage. The giant arch, also known as the Millennium Gate, in Atlantic Station was the first thing that came to mind, so we decided to give it a try. The grassy area was blocked by a huge white tent, but we set up right underneath the arch and did our best to make magic with what we had left of the day. And boy, did we make magic!
Megan and Nick have been married for a year and a half, but they’ve been in love for over a decade, and they looked just as perfect in the rain as they did on their actual wedding day. It was such a joy to work with them.
I want to give a huge shoutout and thank you to everyone who helped me plan, design, and execute this day, even if your work didn’t make it into the photos. I sincerely hope to work with each of you again, but next time in the sun!
