Caitlin & Nate | Botanical Gardens
Athens Georgia Wedding Photographer

December 3, 2016

Nate & Caitlin (also referred to as Natelin) met as freshmen at the University of Georgia.  Even though they’ve both moved onto Atlanta, Athens holds a special place in their hearts.  Nate proposed to Caitlin in front of the UGA Arch, and they tied the knot this October at the State Botanical Gardens of Georgia.  I loved how much fun their wedding was!  They compiled an amazing team of vendors… The Holly Garden blew us away with their florals, Georgia Grace Weddings coordinated the day smoothly & perfectly as usual, and D Street Entertainment kept the dance floor hopping like they always do!  Their First Look was so sweet and allowed the timeline to be super relaxed so that every moment was enjoyed.  If I had to choose a favorite part of the day (which is near impossible), it would have to be when Caitlin & her mom shared a “first dance” which ended in a surprise choreographed routine set to the Gilmore Girls song “Where You Lead.”  Thank you, Caitlin & Nate, for trusting me to capture such a joyous and special time in your lives!
