Biltmore Ballrooms Atlanta Wedding Venue Weddings

Atlanta Wedding Photographer | Biltmore Ballrooms | LeahAndMark & Co.

A Biltmore Ballrooms Wedding in Atlanta is amazing because of the spaces’ ability to transport you to a place that’s elegant and unique and unlike many of the other ballrooms or event spaces in Atlanta. Elegant, classic, aristocratic – those are some of the words that would appropriately describe the Biltmore Ballrooms. Especially that feeling of aristocracy and elegance. Contrary to what their brochures might tell you – you cannot achieve that same atmosphere at any hotel ballroom here in Atlanta.

And of course – not only are the actual ballrooms an amazing feature of the wedding venue – but the front entrance facade is spectacular. With high 50 foot columns and that old-money richness to it – your wedding portraits will look like they couldn’t have been made anywhere else but at the Biltmore Ballrooms.

Obviously – once people see the ceiling of your ceremony or reception space, they’ll immediately recognize where your got married. Because that ceiling is iconic, famous, and a landmark in Atlanta. 

We’re often hard pressed to truly recommend certain venues – but recommending the Biltmore Ballrooms for your wedding is absolutely of a required consideration at the very least.

Here’s the thing about a Biltmore Ballrooms Wedding. It’s A LOT OF CLASS right in the middle of Atlanta. You’re transported to a different location. You don’t feel like you’re in a modern city full of glass and steel. You may feel like you’re far away on a grand estate – maybe even the actual Biltmore Estate in North Carolina. Yeah it’s that amazing in the ballrooms which is crazy when you think about it because it’s literally just one large room. Oh, but what a large room it is. You won’t regret having your wedding there. Trust us. Trust yourself.

Styled Wedding Shoot | Vlog | The Barn at Oak Manor

Barn at Oak Manor Wedding – If you go through this blog (don’t) – you may notice that I almost never, ever, ever do styled shoots. Why? IDK. I’m too busy. They’re not my thing. Whatever – I just don’t do them and haven’t done them – like I said, almost never ever ever.

The way this one came about is because I was wanting to work with Brittani of Untitled Thoughts on a project – and somehow in her crazy mind she agreed to make five (5) dresses for me. A mini collection. But ummm, making five dresses is a big undertaking – especially THESE five dresses when you look at all of the fine hand embroidery done on them. Like a billion+ hours of manual labor went into each of her dresses. SO. I realized that I need to do more than just… photograph the dresses. I mean – I had to somehow make up for things on my side of the project you know?

So I contacted my friend Ashley over at the Barn at Oak Manor and she was kind enough to help us out and let us do the styled shoot there! With the dresses and the venue on board – I then just needed to find EVERYONE ELSE. Models, florals, decor, hair, makeup – a whole team. Right? Because the number of dresses already made sure that this wasn’t just going to be some small ‘couples’ styled shoot that could take place out in a park (free!)… You start somewhere and then keep going.

Dresses, venue, and then amazingly Courtney with Peachy Keen Decor signed on – and then and then and then… oh yeah and then I got some crazy idea that I also wanted artwork in this shoot (those peacock paintings you see in the photos.) So I collected some pieces from my friend Jennifer and even though we didn’t use them all – she was probably a little too trusting as she handed me her paintings… oh man. I just remember her saying – don’t pierce the canvas or you’re buying them. GULP!

Still. Hey. It worked out. Like Really. Worked. Out.

Thanks team.

Monday Night Brewing Wedding Photos

Monday night brewing wedding – When it comes to wedding venues – you can get married pretty much anywhere you want to get married (as long as you’re willing to pay…) – but also – that means you don’t have to get married at the generally obvious, regular wedding venues. FOR EXAMPLE – you can get married at a brewery – like Monday Night Brewing here in Atlanta. I’ve photographed several weddings there and it’s always a whole bag of fun and awesome. Because come on – you’re getting married at a brewery.

Not only that – the patio area is GREAT. There’s also plenty of room inside for eating and dancing and eating and partying. PLUS – the staff is always laid back (because duh – it’s a brewery – how do you think they would be? Right? RIGHT.)

It’s just at the end of November as I write this – and I’m furiously trying to edit and edit and EDIT all of the weddings that I photographed over the last few months. Trying to finish and get caught up before the end of the year. It’s been a really, really great and amazing year – aside from the part where I’m pretty sure I had walking pneumonia during most of October. But really – in the end – come on, I have a great job. I photograph (and attend) weddings for a living. My clients are generally not crazy (well they’re crazy but in the best ways) and they’re amazing and fun and… well – if they spent any time on this website before hiring me – they know what they’re buying when they hire me. Maybe. Monday Night Brewing Wedding here in Atlanta.

Monday Night Brewing Wedding Venue

Monday Night Brewing wedding is probably one of the better breweries for weddings. It’s true. Again – because of their patio. There’s enough space and enough greenery to make it… look better than… other options. AND the beer is pretty damn good.

Kennedy and Alberto – ridiculously beautiful people and instead of a food truck they had ‘food truck stations’. Now – I know some of you may be considering having a food truck cater your wedding. Great. They’re actually pretty cheap considering the regular catering options. The main problem with a single food truck is the timing. Basically no one will be eating together. It’s like a single file line of food spaced about 1-2-3 minutes apart. So if you have say 100 guests, the last guests will eat about an hour after your first guests finished their food (hopefully that soon.)

But food truck stations – you get all the food truck food without the bad timing. See? AWESOME! Well. I know I ate my weight in tacos for sure. (That’s a lot of tacos btw.)

Right. SO. Did I mention Monday Night Brewing? Did I mention that we’re Atlanta wedding photographers? Am I just trying to get some SEO points for Google search ranking and also hit my 500 word count somehow? Probably. And in closing I’d like to say… boom! 504!
