When we left off in Part I of Michael + Meg’s wedding, they’d just boarded the Tech Trolley to their reception at the Foundry at Puritan Mill.
They decided to get the party started early with one of my favorite beers, Blue Moon.
Meg arrived looking like a bridal rockstar!
While Lauren and the third shooter set up the reception lights, I captured the cocktail hour. I adored the set up for the table seating. Michael and Meg had photos displayed from their families’ weddings. I love seeing personal touches like that!
I try to be a “fly on the wall” when I’m photographing weddings, but these two caught me in the act!
Meg and Michael opted for a 4-piece band for the cocktail hour and a DJ for the reception. They were all fabulous at keeping the atmosphere upbeat!
This next shot is me playing around with the off-camera lighting (we worked with 3 strobes). It was one of my first times working with this kind of set-up, so I was grateful for the second shooting opportunity once again. I didn’t have to focus as much on the “safe” or “classic” shots so I could really play with my camera settings and the outcomes.
I’m a Georgia Bulldog fan who had a Sanford Stadium groom’s cake at her wedding, so I can’t hate on these Tech fans and their groom’s cake. 😉
When it was time to photograph the reception details, I.was.FLOORED. I’d never seen such an exquisitely decorated reception space. The Puritan Mill made the perfect backdrop to the floral theme and the hanging mason jars above the wedding party table were stunning.
This was the cutest idea! Meg and Michael had yard games for their guests. I absolutely LOVE playing ‘cornhole’. And once again, the couple put their own personal twist on the game by showcasing their pup that couldn’t be with them on their special day! So stinkin’ cute!
How beautiful is this space?! I highly recommend the Foundry at Puritan Mill for weddings!
Meg and Michael took to the floor for their first dance as a married couple before things got rowdy. 😉
I’m still kicking myself for not snagging one of the famous King of Pops popsicles! Which one of my brides is gonna hire them for their wedding so I can redeem myself?
This was definitely a highlight of the night. Meg’s Alpha Gamma Delta sorority sisters did their tradition of forming a circle around a sister bride and singing her one of their sorority songs. It definitely made me miss my days at Delta Gamma!
The night continued with some more dancing before the guests finally sent Michael and Meg off to live their happily ever after.
Special thanks again to Lauren of I Love You Much Photography for inviting me to second shoot yet another fabulous wedding with her!
