Every classic romance story should include a ballroom. That might just be our opinion, but we think that Joel and Julie would agree. You may recognize this weeks bride and groom from their amazing engagement session we shot earlier this year on the Beltline and Piedmont Park. We had such a good time shooting with them earlier this year, we knew that their wedding would be just as wonderful! Their classic affair took place at the Biltmore Ballrooms in our beloved city of Atlanta. We adore the Biltmore! Every time we get to shoot there it feels like an absolute fairy tale and Joel and Julie’s wedding day was just as magical.
Joel and Julie’s story started with friendship, which we love! After running into each other at a few work functions, they began to realize that maybe their friendship could be something more. After dating long distance for a while, Julie made the move to Atlanta to be with Joel. When it came time to propose, Joel wanted to make sure everything was perfect. He decided to take Julie to an ice rink to pop the question. Unfortunately, the weather was not on his side. When Julie suggested they just call it a day and get out of the rain, Joel knew he had to quickly improvise. After a bit of a stroll, they came across a fountain. Joel asked a passerby to take a picture for them, but surprised Julie when he dropped to one knee and asked if they could share their forevers.
Just like their proposal, Joel and Julie’s wedding day was full of authentic, romantic moments. There was so much love for the couple from their families, it was felt in every moment. From getting ready at the Four Seasons, to dancing the night away at the Biltmore, Joel and Julie started off their marriage with a celebration we won’t soon forget!
A night full of tradition, joy and most of all, love. Congratulation, Joel and Julie! Being part of your story has been such an honor.
