Rachelle + Jesse - Botanical Garden Wedding

Rachelle and Jesse tied the knot on November 11th 2017 at the Columbus Botanical Gardens in Columbus, Georgia. The overall style was a hint of rustic with touches of modern and vintage charm mixed throughout. These two lovebirds said their vows about an hour before sunset and danced the night away in the lighted courtyard. Autumn and Winter weddings pose their own challenges especially if outdoors, so we opted to do all formal portraits aside from the bride and groom earlier in the day while we still had ample daylight. I find that this is the best workaround for winter weddings and doesn't incorporate any flash photography, although I have the equipment and knowledge it is a style preference of mine. The Botanical Gardens offered ample space for their wedding of about 150 guests. The barn was a perfect backdrop for the ceremony while the courtyard provided tables and eating space under the string lights and also made for a small dance floor off to the side. The historic house provided many amenities for guests and the grounds were very well kept. If you are planning an intimate wedding, the Columbus Botanical Gardens is a great venue option
