Wedding at Autrey Mill Nature Preserve and Heritage Center- Dena and Malachi {Atlanta Wedding Photographer}

What can we say about this next beautiful couple that isn’t already apparent in their pictures? Dena and Malachi are kind-hearted, God-centered, and genuine. We loved photographing their sweet wedding at Autrey Mill Nature Preserve and Heritage Center!

When we pulled up that day and saw the Summerour House, we were so excited to be surrounded with such cute historical┬áhomes and structures. There were also beautiful trees around the ceremony space as far as you can see. These both made very fun backdrops to their wedding that was full of vintage charm. Dena and her girls were getting ready at the main house, which definitely felt like a warm and cozy French country cottage. The light coming in from the window in the bridal suite was so luminous, she looked angelic and calm as the wedding day was well under way. The pinks and marsala colors of the bridesmaids really complimented ┬áDena’s dress with a sweetheart neckline and illusion netting. Dena’s flower girl wore a dress that Dena wore when SHE was a flower girl as well, isn’t that just perfect?

Malachi and his guys were getting ready in a common area that doubles as a workspace for campers and visitors to the Heritage center, so the backdrop was a bit eclectic, but it fit with the personality of these guys! The marsala vest that Malachi wore, coupled with the pocket watch he kept on him really matched with their vintage theme.

After their emotional ceremony, we whisked them off to take wedding party and couples portraits right after. We even used our amazing Pentacon 6 Medium Format film camera (which we will be posting in a separate post about our film photography adventures soon:) Just take a look at their portraits-simply divine!

Congratulations Dena and Malachi, may your marriage be filled with the same joy and devotion you shared on your wedding day!
