The Foundry at Puritan Mill Wedding

Check out these amazing photos from Chanelle and Ricardo’s wedding in Atlanta, Georgia. The bride decided to do a first look with her father and the couple decided to do a first touch. There was a lot of emotion expressed during the first touch and they even exchanged gifts. Their wedding colors (orange and green) were from our alma mater Florida A&M University and the decor came out beautiful! I am so happy for these two and ever since their engagement session, I knew it was going to be a fun day.

Getting To Know Chanelle and Ricardo

How did the two of you meet?

We met at a mutual friend’s birthday dinner. We knew everyone else there except each other.

What did you do for your first date?

Ricardo picked me up with a fresh bouquet of red roses and sage. I mentioned needing some sage the days prior. We went to Nouveau for a nice dinner and talked the night away.

Who proposed and how?

Ricardo purposed. He took me to lunch at Yebo and instructed me to wear all white. He wanted me to wear a cocktail dress but I refused because it was in the middle of the day. He then blindfolded me and we drove to the next destination which was our house. He walked me into the backyard and a saxophonist started playing. He took the blindfold off but because it was so tight on my eyes I couldn’t really see. I saw the outline of people but couldn’t make out faces. I did see my mom who started to cry. I turned around and leading up to an arch with Will You Marry Me where pictures of us through the years and my dog that just passed away. He got down on one knee and here we are.

What made you select your wedding venue The Foundry at Puritan Mill Wedding?

It was a location we both agreed on. Its is aesthetically pleasing. The open face brick walls and the drapery are beautiful. It also has plenty of space.

Lastly, when people reflect back on your wedding, what do you want them to say?

I want them to think of how beautiful the wedding was and I want them to feel the love in the room. Overall I want them to have a great time.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

We are just excited to be here
