Our Journey | Mei and Benny
Atlanta Wedding Photography

These lovebirds, Mei and Benny, tied a knot before their closest family and friends at Old Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church in Atlanta on one fine day. It’s their journey to finally find each other as each other’s half.

Their wedding photoshoot continued around Oglethorpe University and Three Ravinia Drive. It’s a beautiful day for them, and I hope that all these pictures can feed the hearts that truly love each other.

Thank you for letting me be a part of this amazing chapter in your lives! I wish you a blissful marriage life together.

Love at First Sight | Olga and Hayelom
2 Days Atlanta Wedding Photography

July 2015 marked the year to remember for Olga and Hayelom. It was the month that they wed – twice! Way before that was when, Hayelom fell in love at first sight with Olga, at the Pennsylvania State University. It is suffice to say that it took a bi-coastal and DC – ATL relationship for them to get married. And what an epic wedding it was!

The Weddings

One weekend in July was filled with cultural and religious traditions from Ethiopia and the Philippines. Olga and Hayelom’s wedding weekend started off in an Ethiopian Christian Orthodox Church. Traditional wedding kaba’s were worn by both the bride and groom. The church was filled with the choir singing mezmur (Ethiopian gospel music) and with the bride and groom partaking in the joyous occasion, as the keboro (Ethiopian drum) sounds amplified in the church as the ceremony took place.

The second day was a culmination of the bride’s Filipino tradition at the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.  Along with their parents, the Bride and Groom’s Primary and Secondary Sponsors were present and will serve as guides to support the couple during their marriage. In honor of the Bride’s parents, the Secondary Sponsors used the same veil, chord, and coins used during the Bride’s parents’ wedding in the Philippines in the 70s; all were used to honor that lasting Filipino wedding tradition.

The epic weekend of Mr. and Mrs. Tadesse went on through the night with their family, friends, and loved ones. The Georgian Terrace provided just the right backdrop for their beautiful wedding.

Olga and Hayelom, thank you for being so wonderful! Congratulations for your wedding and wishing you a lifetime of happiness together!
