Lake Lanier Islands - Many Venue Sites, One Location


Wedding Venue on Lake Lanier

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of escaping from the rat race to the lovely Lake Lanier Islands. Upon entry, I stopped by Something Blue -- the one stop shop for Lake Lanier Islands brides and grooms--where I met Alicia Raymond.

Alicia is one of the talented wedding specialists happy to take you (or, in this case me,) on a tour of the many wedding venues located at the resort. With more than a dozen distinct wedding venues scattered around the 1,500 acre property, there seems to be a place for just about any wedding you could imagine -- from an intimate 80 person-affair, all the way up to a 700-person gala. Many of the locations offer amazing views of the lake. One venue, Venetian Pier, even sits on the lake.

Lake Lanier Islands also offers great options for rehearsal dinners. My favorite is the Spirit of Lanier, a 65-foot stern-wheeler that can accommodate 40 guests. I can only imagine how much fun a sunset cruise on the classic paddleboat would be.

Here are few photos to give you an idea of the natural beauty of the Islands.

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.
