Taqueesa & Adrian’s Wedding | Word of Faith Cathedral | Atlanta Austell Wedding Photographer

Wedding

Big churches are either an Atlanta thing, or a Southern thing, I don’t remember seeing many in Florida… Word of Faith Cathedral built by the Bronner Brothers over in Austell next to Six Flags probably qualifies as a “big church,” with it’s 4,000 seat main cathedral! We were not in the main cathedral for the wedding, but I almost got lost in the parking lot getting to the smaller chapel! This Saturday was a lovely day for a wedding as we celebrated with Taqueesa, Adrian, their family and friends. The day started off with the bride and groom getting ready at the Bronner International Chapel. Thanks in advance to the always amazing Sonya Yim for second shooting (and first shooting at times while I shot video), all photos in this post by me, Zac, of course; but you can head over to Sonya’s site to see her angles. Let’s get started with this wedding!

Prior to the ceremony we snuck Taqueesa out to the parking lot for some portraits. Parking lot? Yes, parking lot =) We had to be subtle to make sure the groom and the guests didn’t see her!

Ok and I still took some indoors in the bridal suite too!

The reception got off to a sweet start as Adrian serenaded his bride with his saxophone.

While the sun glares down on me from Dunkin Donuts this morning, he is another blog post! As you maybe can tell from all of these wedding posts our Fall was super-duper busy with weddings almost every single weekend from August to December, and that doesn't mean the Summer was any less busy either from April to July! The first weekend in October I had the pleasure of being the photographer for Suzanne and Andy's wedding at the Atlanta History Center. It was great to be outdoors and shoot a wedding in daylight with a beautiful couple. Here are a few sample favorites from the wedding day before the full blog post comes in the future! ...
