Christen and Brad exchanged vows at the historic Freight Depot in the heart of Atlanta.
Built in 1869, the Freight Depot is the oldest building in downtown Atlanta. It was converted to an event space in 1981 and can hold up to 1300 guests!
Needless to say, Brad and Christen did not fill the space, but we sure got our steps in running to and fro getting set up for this event!
Atlanta Event Decor alongside Troy with Avenue, made this MASSIVE space both beautiful and intimate. Christen chose a sweet, feminine color palette of soft pinks and creams, and it turned out just beautifully.
The couple opted for both Pastor Tim Riordan and Rabbi Lebow to officiate their ceremony since they are from different religious backgrounds, and their sweet service included traditions dear to both of their hearts.
Once “I Do’s” were exchanged, the couple and their bridal parties headed out for photos with Catherine Park of My Life Photography, and their guests headed to cocktail hour. Some favorite items? Asparagus wrapped prosciutto, springs rolls and pecan chicken satay.
The couple and their friends re-joined the party as everyone made their way inside the main event space.
DJ Atlanta Fever played a short dance set, then everyone settled down to a delicious plated dinner of salmon, filet and assorted side items.
After dinner, it was time to party! DJ Mello did what he does best; he got the crowd up and dancing and they never sat back down!
Ok they sat down for one thing: speeches. Christen’s maid of honor gave a fabulous speech, while Brad’s best man even did a UGA chant for all of the bulldog loving crowd. James Futch captured this (and all of the other great moments of the night) on video, for the newlyweds to cherish.
The party raged on, only stopping to cut the gorgeous cake, provided by Metrotainment Bakery, and to bid the couple adieu via a sparkler exit after an amazing night.
