ISES at the Amazing Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club

The Atlanta chapter of the International Special Events Society met last week at an incredible new venue space, the Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club. The resort has been given permits to build 2,300,000 square feet of resort space, including hotels, convention space, condominiums and Private Resident Clubs. Members of ISES toured the property, shared great food from Low Country Barbeque and enjoyed entertainment provided by Amusement Masters and Burgess Amusements. Event Design including floral arrangements was provided by Steve Bales, Creative Director at Bold American and music by Lethal Rhythms.

Here are a few photos of folks enjoying themselves. On Thursday, I'll post more about Foxhall's beautiful property.

Cindy Brown

I'm an Atlanta wedding photographer who takes soulful, quirky and honest photos ...

I'm also an adventurous traveler and all-round nerd. I love to hike with my beagle/cattle dog Roux and best friend/spouse.

I was born in Atlanta, moved around a lot--30 cities and 5 states--and then came back.

After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta, I took a job at asmall newspaper in south Georgia, where I photographedhospital teas, pecan farmers, and beauty queens.

I photographed a biker funeral, death penalty protests andTed Bundy while interning with the Associated Press.

While a photographer for two dailies in Florida, I photographed Ronald Reagan, a train derailment and the dedication of a screened-in porch.

An unexpected life turn took me to Vermont where I fell in love with Bernie Sanders and on to Indiana, where I edited photos for a major daily, and nerded out getting a master’s and PhD.

After teaching photojournalism at colleges and universities in Florida, Indiana and Mississippi, I returned to Atlanta to earn myfifth degree--a Master's of Divinity.

My passion for storytelling with my camera and my interest in religious diversity led my to the field of wedding photojournalism.

I have documented weddings large and small, Unitarian and Pagan, indoors and out, Christian and Muslim, in backyards and in churches. The most exotic wedding I have photographed took place in Mexico and was officiated by aMayan shaman.

When I'm not photographing weddings, portraits or corporate events, I work on personal photo projects, visit friends in amemory-care home, and volunteer at a recovery center.
