Cotton Warehouse weddings

Artsy wedding at the Cotton Warehouse | Stephanie & Josh celebrated their millennial wedding at the couture warehouse in a vintage ceremony underneath the rustic lights.

Stephanie and Josh tied the knot at the Cotton Warehouse, a rustic venue 45 miles outside of Atlanta, Georgia, the perfect location for their artsy millennial wedding theme. The bride enjoyed a relaxed morning getting ready with her bridesmaids in the venue’s brick bridal suite. They all wore custom wedding jerseys as they curled their hair and toasted the upcoming nuptials with champagne. The bride’s mother helped her lace up her strapless satin wedding gown with a sweetheart neckline and rhinestone belt. Underneath the layers of tulle, the bride wore white sneakers and blue patterned socks, revealing the playful side of her personality.

The bridal party gathered for a fun outdoor shoot in front of the rustic brick building lined with lush green plants. The bridesmaids wore lilac gowns and carried bouquets of baby’s breath mixed with purple flowers. The groomsmen, in light green shirts with suspenders and purple bow ties, borrowed the bouquets for a funny photo session. Like the bride, the groom and his groomsmen wore a variety of patterned socks hidden by their pant legs. They also posed with their custom-made wedding flasks.

The vintage-inspired ceremony was held in a couture warehouse with strings of lights hanging from the rafters, which created a halo of light around the couple as they said their vows. Working with a mixture of natural and artificial light, our Atlanta-based photography team captured every intimate moment. The bride and groom both wiped back tears of happiness amidst smiles as they said “I do.” The officiant announced the new Mr. and Mrs., and they escaped outside for their first portrait session as husband and wife.
