Extravagant Ventanas Wedding
Lisa & Dennis exchanged their vows this past weekend at Dunwoody Baptist Church followed by a gorgeous reception at Ventanas in downtown Atlanta Georgia.
Their beautiful Ventanas wedding day was absolutely magical! Set high above the city and overlooking Centennial Olympic Park from the bridal suite of the Embassy by Hilton Lisa gracefully stepped into her gorgeous white lace + silk wedding gown. The lace cascaded effortlessly down to the floor creating a silhouette of pure elegance & allure. As Lisa’s mom looped each button which danced down the back of the gown she took in every moment. Her little girl was getting married. The moments were sweet + quiet and filled with great joy.
A few flights down Dennis too was getting ready. His dapper attire consisted of a fitted three piece black suit and white bowtie by Allure Men. A style that spoke of a true gentlemen wishing to compliment his bride with an understated debonair look to ensure her beauty would sparkle.
The finishing touch was a pearl and diamond neckless which Lisa’s mom delicately clasped and her daughters neck. Vibes of wonderful lovely filled the room.
It was time for the bridesmaids first look! Lisa slowly opened the bedroom door and walked down the hall to the suite’s living room were the ladies were gathered . With one look gasps, awes and tears began to echo off the walls. Before them stood their best friend on her wedding day looking more exquisite than gold. She was perfect.
There was just one thing left, the shoes.
Moments after Lisa’s wedding shoes were on, a knock was heard upon the door. Dennis was just outside the room waiting for their no peaking first touch. With a deep breath Lisa graciously stepped into the foyer and stood just out of view were the two walkways met. This allowed her and Dennis the opportunity to hold hands and exchange letters without seeing each other.
Love letters were exchanged and in their hearts a deep peace entered as they prepared to become husband and wife in less than an hour.
And with the folding of Dennis’s letter they were off to the church.
There was just one more first look to be done, Dad’s. About 30mins before the wedding began, dad arrived at the church beyond excited to see his daughter. There he stood on one side of the door with his little girl on the other. For a father it was one of the happiest days of his life and the saddest. Today he has to give his little girl, who is now a gorgeous woman, away to another. This was the day she goes from having his last name to taking on her husband’s last name. He carries with him the joy of knowing the man she is marrying is amazing and will provide and take care of the one heart that means more than the world to him.
Dad’s look said it all as he turned the handle and opened the door. Priceless!
Guests filled the church and the time had come. Dad took his daughter’s arm and they walked to the aisle together.
Sealed with a kiss they became husband + wife!
Following the ceremony Lisa + Dennis along with the wedding party headed back to downtown Atlanta. It was time to get the party started. The streets of Atlanta were filled with beeps and cheers as they walked hand in hand to Centennial Park for gorgeous wedding photos. These two were on cloud 9… By the way, their grand exit was in a helicopter so they were literally on cloud 9 at the end of the evening.
And they danced like no one was watching!
And of course before heading to the reception we whisked Lisa + Dennis up to the Helipad on top of Ventanas to take in the beautiful adventure which their love story had brought them to.
At the end of the evening, thanks to Atlanta Helicopters, Lisa + Dennis flew in to the night sky for their Ventanas wedding sendoff.
Cheers Lisa + Dennis to a beautiful love story and the beginning of an amazing adventure!
