Chris & Maria’s Ashton Gardens Wedding | Atlanta, Georgia

Chris and Maria could sell their love story to a Hollywood producer and we would all have our new favorite Romcom. These two were literally brought together by their pups. Apparently Chris’ dog knew Maria was a catch, because he chased her down outside of their apartment complex. They then realized that they had both moved to Atlanta for work opportunities and only lived 3 doors down from each other. I can’t make this stuff up. Cut to the proposal, Chris pulls off a once in a lifetime surprise by proposing to Maria on top of Breckenridge Mountain in Colorado. He even flew all of their best friends out so they could celebrate together. Yes, we love Chris.

With a love story like that, it was no surprise that Chris and Maria’s wedding day was magical. The couple chose Ashton Gardens as their venue (a personal favorite!). From the picturesque windows in the sun filled chapel, to the natural foliage that envelops the grounds, it really is a stunning place. But Chris and Maria didn’t let their venue to all the work, their eye for design and love of fashion (they both rocked Louboutin shoes) made for a perfect evening that reflected their joy and love for one another.

It’s easy to see all the beauty from Chris and Maria’s big day. It was everywhere. But I will always remember the emotional moments. Family crying, friends celebrating on the dance floor, the bride and groom stealing sweet kisses and hugs all night long. To me, those are the most important moments.

For a real puppy love to forever kind of love story, keep scrolling!
