A Wedding For One Of Our Own…. Congrats to Jes and Tim!

We had a little wedding of our own just recently at The Decisive Moment!  Our own photographer Jessica McGowan took a turn on the other side of the camera at her recent wedding!  As you can see, she made a STUNNING bride and created a beautiful celebration that truly reflected who she and Tim are as people.  The setting for the wedding ceremony was Oakland Cemetery…yes I said cemetery and it was gorgeous!  The cemetery had amazing history, was visually stunning and as stated by the officiant, was an amazing place to celebrate life and the importance of living it well while it is here.  I loved that Jes and Tim walked down the aisle hand in hand – together to make their commitment.  They turned the tradition of a get a way car on its ear as they escaped to the reception on Tim’s vintage motor bike!  The reception, held at Trees Atlanta, also reflected Jes and Tim’s style and sensibilities from the delicious vegetarian menu, the vintage accents to the ultimate pie bar!! The entire celebration was definitely a reflection of two wonderful individuals that we are so very thankful to work with on a weekly basis!  Congrats Jes & Tim!

Jes and Tim’s wedding was a great opportunity to work with many of the amazing wedding vendors that are part of The Atlanta Wedding Loft!  We LOVE the opportunity to work with this fantastic group of wedding professionals!  We can not thank you enough for going above and beyond for Jes!
