Real Wedding: Midtown Museum

Tia and Shawn first shared their collegiate love story with us in our October Bride of the Month series. The couple was married on October 14, 2017 in midtown Atlanta at the Millennium Gate Museum.

We caught up with Tia to hear about the big day and with the photos as evidence, it was nothing short of amazing. Read more for a look behind this Midtown museum wedding captured by Made You Look Photo & Film.

Having finished planning your wedding, what piece of advice would you offer brides-to-be going through the process? If I could offer brides-to-be one piece of advice it would be to soak up every single bit of the wedding day with family and friends. The entire day goes by so fast!

What is your favorite memory from your wedding day? The vow exchange is by far my favorite memory of our wedding day because it was such a special moment for me and my groom to share together in front of our family and friends.

During your engagement you told us you were really excited about the decor. What were your favorite elements? One of my favorite decor elements of our wedding was a family crest we had designed and installed at the venue. You could see the personalized crest hanging from blocks away! It coordinated with our invitations and was an immediate symbol to guests that they had arrived at our wedding.

Of course the entire day was fun, but which part was the most fun to see come together after all the planning? Creating an amazing guest experience was the most important thing throughout the planning process. Seeing our guests in awe at the venue, florals, food, drinks and favors was fun to watch since we had put so much thought into it.

You had an amazing team of vendors! How did you choose them? When we started wedding planning I knew I wanted Made You Look Photo & Film to capture our day. Their team has an incredible reputation and is extremely nice and caring. From the engagement shoot to the wedding day, they created an amazing experience for us. Every moment and every angle was captured on film and still photos with a special attention to detail.

Best wishes Tia and Shawn!

October Bride of the Month | Tia

Meet Tia, our October bride of the month! Tia and her groom bleed for their alma mater, so they did their engagement shoot with Made You Look Photo in their best college tees to pay homage to how they met. 

Read more about their engagement and wedding story. 

When and where are you getting married? We are getting married on October 14, 2017, at a gorgeous intown spot – MGM (Millennium Gate Museum), which is the arch in the center of Atlantic Station/17th street. It looks like the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, France and was an architecture design contender for the Eisenhower Memorial.

How did you meet and how did he propose? We both love our ungrads, and our friends introduced us at homecoming one year.  He proposed on top of a mountain, inside cloud nine 🙂 We were surrounded by candlelight, family, and friends and the balcony had a sign that said, “Will You Marry Me?” 

What is your overall vision for your wedding? Our theme is chic rustic to blend with the outdoor ceremony and reception that we will have at the venue with elevated attire to complement the evening event. Most importantly though, we want our guests to have a blast and party it up!

Which wedding details are you most excited about and why? Looking at everyone’s enjoyment and excitement and of course, I’m very excited about tying the knot with my groom! We have a lot of fun food surprises for our guest so that will be fun to watch unfold on the big day.

What has been the most difficult and most fun part of wedding planning? Logistics and Logistics. But, we have an awesome event coordinator, Robyne Gordon at Carrie Belle Events, to help us with all of it.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
