Forrest and Ari got married at the Taylor Grady House in spring of 2018. The Taylor Grady House is located in Athens and is one of my favorite wedding venues. It has beautiful architecture with plenty of natural light. We started with photos of some of the details before getting both shots of Forrest and Ari getting ready. They opted to do a first look on the porch of the Taylor Grady House. That transitioned into photos of the two of them in the gardens and around the house until the full wedding party came out for photos. After we finished the pre-wedding photos, everyone went inside for the Tish ceremony. The Tish ceremony is the time for the all of the males to come together for drinks and to talk to the groom about marriage. After the Tish ceremony, Ari came in for the Ketubah signing. The Ketubah signing is typical in Jewish ceremonies and is kind of like a marriage contract for the bride and groom. All friends and family come in and Ari checks under the veil to insure that she is indeed his bride… A couple of friends sign the Ketubah along with the rabbi to make it official. Everyone lined up for the wedding and before you knew it, Ari to stomping on the glass and sealing the ceremony with a kiss. We did a few additional photos of the couple before starting the reception. The reception started with a beautiful choreographed dance between Forrest and Ari. The food was blessed and the cake was cut. Friends and family gave toasts for the happy couple and then the hora started… The hora has always been one of my favorite wedding traditions to photograph. There’s always so much excitement, movement, and laughter- the atmosphere is infectious. After the hora, everyone joined the couple on the dance floor for the remainder of the reception. We snuck back out front for a few minutes once the reception was going full swing to get some additional photos of Forrest and Ari at night. Before long, it was time for the exit and they shared one last kiss for the camera…
