Bryttney + Colin hosted their wedding at The Bibb Mill Event Center in Columbus, Georgia in the fall of 2019. As an Atlanta, Georgia Wedding Photographer, I was really excited about shooting at a wedding venue just outside of the city.
Bryttney made sure to spend a little extra time with her girls before the fast moving parts of her day really got started. She brought along confetti poppers to bring out the lively nature of her girls, which made for some of my favorite photos from their day!
I mean…Literally the most beautiful bride ever, right?!
While Bryttney’s mother was finishing up hair and makeup, some of the bridesmaids helped her into her dress and shoes.
Seriously, what’s not to love about this venue? Everything in and around it is stunning!
A little “bride-on-her-wedding-day” fun…
Once her mother was dressed and looking incredible for the big day, Bryttney and her mom shared a few sweet moments together. It was a little sentimental pause in a day that seems to move at rapid speed.
Aren’t they GORGEOUS?!?! I’m still in love with Bryttney’s mother’s dress!
The Illges House is just as beautiful outside as it is on the inside! The contrast of the black shutters against the white building with the pops of greenery made for the perfect backdrop for the bridesmaid photos!
While the ladies were at The Illges House, Colin and his groomsmen hung out at the wedding venue. Colin and his groomsmen sported grey suits with a charming green bowtie that complimented the ladies dress color.
It’s always fun when the groomsmen let loose and have fun!
Bryttney + Colin shared their first look together outside on the grounds of The Bibb Mill Event Center. Just to the side of where the ceremony would later take place, there’s a stunning walk-way with greenery filled brick walls. It has to be one of the most unique venue’s we’ve ever shot at.
Colin’s face says it all …
The way they look at each other, you can just see how absolutely smitten they are…
Another added touch Bryttney thought of was to pop a bottle of champagne (or two ;)) with their squad of VIPS! This was one of my highlights from their wedding day. I still talk about it and tell clients how much fun it was!
Bryttney + Colin’s wedding was planned and styled by the amazing ladies of Weddings by Epic. We can’t say enough about what a wonderful job they did and how awesome they are to work with!
After the ceremony, we spent about 45 minutes capturing beautiful golden hour photos of the newlyweds and shots of the reception decor. During this time, the guests enjoyed drinks, games, and the beautiful view that this venue provides.
Giant Jenga was a big hit for guests during cocktail hour! Also, quite entertaining to watch 😉
Tons of the newlywed’s friends and families surrounded them for a wonderful night of dancing, eating, drinking, and celebrating! Bryttney + Colin were sent off by a long line of sparklers at the end of their evening.
I can’t say enough how gorgeous and perfect everything was at Bryttney + Colin’s wedding! A memorable day from start to finish. To Bryttney + Colin, thank you for welcoming us into your lives to capture your memories! We <3 you guys!!!!
