Heather & Jason’s picture-perfect day

It started with relaxed elegance

This down-to-earth and easy-going couple did everything right for their downtown Atlanta wedding. They book-ended their day with the elegant, old-world Georgian Terrace Hotel serving as their headquarters for his-and-her wedding day preparations and later as a magnificently decorated backdrop for their plated reception.

Grandeur at the altar

The couple exchanged vows at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus just a few minutes away by twin white stretch limousines. The historic church interior was bannered with with massive US flags, commemorating July 4, an unusual theme that lent an air of pomp that made the sight of Heather’s train and cathedral veil trailing her graceful stroll up the aisle all the more regal. After a full Catholic wedding mass followed by family formals at the Basilica’s altar, the two shared a single limousine back to the Terrace for a big welcome and lots of celebration.

A Classic Celebration

From Heather’s bustled gown to Jason’s traditional black tux and tie, from intricately designed centerpieces to the beautiful scrollwork of the Terrace’s ballroom, this reception was a perfect example of a classic celebration. As with every traditionally executed evening, it began with their introduction and first dance and followed with a delicious plated dinner, cake-cutting, toasts, a dancing free-for-all and sparkler-and-bubble send-off, followed by a slider-fueled after-party in the couple’s Terrace suite.
