Academy of Medicine Wedding | Saed and Nate

What a wedding and dance party! Saed and Nate, friends and family gathered at the stately The Historic Academy of Medicine for a delightful ceremony and reception. Before the wedding they said their vision of their wedding included a "fun, laid-back, but elegant" ceremony, that would "turn into a dance party!" And that is just what they got. Two minor faux pauxs occurred. One of Saed's bridesmaids bought the wrong color dress. Thankfully, the maid of honor was able to wear the dress, which set her apart from the other bridesmaids and seemed natural to those at the wedding. The groom ordered six bowties for his six groomsmen -- and forgot to order one for himself. Two groomsmen made a last minute visit to a department store and returned with a bow tie for the groom that was just a tad lighter than the groomsmen's ties. Everything else about the wedding went off without a hitch.

One of their friends made the delectable cake decorated with cream-colored flowers. Saed and bridemaids carried flowers with fiddlehead ferns (my favorite) designed by "On Occasions of Atlanta." The folks at "Proof of the Pudding" provided the savory salads, entrees and side dishes. The staff from the Academy of Medicine made sure everything went off without a hitch.

Here is a sneak peak of a few images from the night:
