Atlanta Wedding Venue | Melia Hotel

130404-melia-9.jpg

Recently I was invited by Crickett Russell, Social Catering Manager, to tour the venue spaces at the Melia Hotel. I was surprised to learn that Melia Hotels is one of the top 20 hotel companies in the world, with more than 350 hotels in 35 countries. The hotel in Atlanta is located at 590 West Peachtree Street NW in the heart of midtown. With more than 30,000 square feet of meeting space and upwards of 20 meeting rooms, the hotel is a great place for weddings, b'not mitzvahs, quinceaneras and other social events, as well as corporate events.

Unique to the Melia in Atlanta is SKY twenty.five, a spectacular event space occupying the entire top floor of the hotel with floor-to-ceiling windows providing breathtaking panoramic views of the Atlanta skyline. The space can hold up to 350 people.

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.

Buckhead Theatre | Atlanta Wedding Venue

Earlier this Fall, I was invited by Emily Williams at The Buckhead Theatre to tour the recently remodeled space that many who’ve lived in Atlanta for several years will remember as The Roxy. Those who’ve lived in Atlanta even longer, will realize that the name change to The Buckhead Theatre is a throwback to the venue's original appellation. After a two-year remodel that totally revitalized the interior, the space reopened with a newfound flexibility for wedding/corporate events. Those of you planning an event with an art deco, old theatre twist will be delighted with what you find here.

Check out the photos below and I think you’ll be impressed, as I was, by the beautiful details, opulently ornamented foyer, whimsical plaster detailing, and open spaces you can make your own.

For more information on having your wedding or event at The Buckhead Theatre, please follow the link to their site here.

Gotta love the dressing room area. It's designed for the celebrities who perform at the theatre, but you get to use it if you rent the space for your wedding or corporate event.

Foxhall, April ISES meeting
Foxhall, April ISES meeting

I had the privilege of touring the grounds of the Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club on the very south side of Douglasville last week. The International Special Events Society held there April meeting there and Wow was it delightful. I plan to go back again soon to ride horses and take more photos of the awesome landscape. If I'm real ambitious one morning, I'll get up early and go before the fog lifts. I'll be sure to share what I find.
