Wedding at Dekalb History Center, Old Courthouse on the Square-Laura and David {Decatur Wedding Photographer}

What do you get when you take two stunning people and plan a courthouse wedding? Pure magic! Laura and David’s wedding at the Old Courthouse on the Square in Decatur, Georgia was an amazing venue to hold this stylish and chic wedding. When I met Laura, she told me her plans of getting married at the courthouse and then having a reception dinner with her family at Iberian Pig directly afterwards, I was in love. Honestly it was fate since I actually had photographed at the Dekalb County Courthouse with Jasmine Star at her Atlanta workshop last year and afterwards were treated to an amazing dinner at no other than the Iberian Pig! Needless to say we were elated when Laura and David chose us! When photographing the gorgeous architecture and granite of the courthouse, nothing can seem to compare. But, Laura looking radiant and incredible in her ivory dress and statement necklace (Rent the Runway all the way!), stole the show.  David was, however, a bit nervous and was very excited about marrying Laura. Whatever nerves he felt turned to tears of joy and his outpouring of emotion was a testament to how much he truly treasured and loved Laura as they said their vows to each other on the May afternoon. After the ceremony and family portraits, we made our way to the Iberian Pig, where their guests were treated to a lovely coral, ivory, and gold tablescape, champagne, and an assorted of artisan cheeses and meats that the restaurant is known for. David and Laura, we loved capturing their romantic and chic wedding day and wish you both happiness and love for years to come! Cheers!
