Bonnie & Lea | Athens Rehearsal Dinner

This post comes to you courtesy of the gracious Bonnie & Lea from Atlanta. Their wedding was held in the quaint little college  town of Athens, GA this past May. Occasionally we get the opportunity to photograph rehearsal dinners, especially for destination weddings since we’re in town a day early. The State Botanical Gardens of Georgia in Athens was a perfect place for this rehearsal dinner catered by the fantastic Epting Events, whom I cannot say enough great things about. There will be much more about them on the wedding post following this one. If you are interested in rehearsal coverage for your wedding, please get in touch with us.

The grounds at the Botanical Gardens are a little piece of heaven. Just beautiful….




Cocktail hour outside the atrium was a great time for the guests to mingle and catch up.  Live music and specialty drinks were a nice start to the evening!




Inside the atrium there was beautiful decor’ and a southern dinner buffet fit for a King…

I can tell you with conviction that the fried chicken tasted as good as it looked!
We loved the stories and physical demonstrations like Lea as a young lad here in his favorite superman costume…

Some of these are just better left to your imagination….


Of course there were more touching stories as well….
Come back for the next blog post  and a beautiful Athens, GA wedding!
