Katherine and Ben met and fell in love while in college at The University of Georgia. When it came time to choose a destination wedding location for their wedding weekend they knew they wanted to bring their friends and family to the town where their relationship started. The couple hired Martel Event to plan the entire weekend of events that showed off why exactly Athens was so special to them. Welcome cocktails at their favorite local lounge, portraits and first look on campus at UGA, a beautiful celebration reception in downtown Athens, and a farewell brunch at their weekend staple. The bride wore a beautiful Lihi Hod gown with soft waves and a stunning veil. The couple included their Golden Retriever in the weekend festivities as the " best man".
"Elizabeth Lanier's work speaks for itself. It’s effortless, timeless, and genuine. She’s as much an incredible photographer as she is a joy to have around. We learned from our engagement session how efficient she is and that is so helpful on a wedding day when you have so much packed into that one day! We were able to actually enjoy the day, time with each other, and loved ones without feeling like it was just a full day long photo shoot. After it’s all said and done photography is the one thing you actually get to take away from your wedding day and in my opinion that makes it priceless. It was an honor to have Elizabeth Lanier behind the lens captured the moments that we’ll cherish for a lifetime."
