Nadia & Alex’s wedding was simple and laidback and incredibly sweet. They married lakeside at the Lakehouse at Avondale and their celebration was about the people around them. Their outdoor fall wedding ceremony was intimate and sweet and was followed by sharing a meal together. Nadia & Alex’s wedding day was truly about blending their families & friends who came from all corners of the world to gather with them.
Nadia & Alex prepared for their wedding day before meeting for a first look. While Nadia & Alex didn’t get ready entirely together, they found little moments to be close to each other. It was sweet and intimate. Alex tied Nadia’s bow on her wedding dress and his mother helped her otherwise. It was so sweet! After getting ready, we walked around the lake at the park next to the Lakehouse at Avondale. The lake and the ducks there are one of the reasons Nadia & Alex chose this spot for their wedding day. It’s somewhere they love to be.
Wedding Ceremony at the Lakehouse at Avondale
For their ceremony, Nadia & Alex met lakeside with their guests around them for an intimate celebration. Instead of walking down with his parents, Alex carried their daughter down the aisle. It was so emotional! Afterwards, Nadia walked down the aisle with both of her parents. They held a short and sweet – but super meaningful ceremony. One of my favorite part was definitely the orange leaves that served as a backdrop for their vows. It was absolutely stunning!!
Georgia Wedding Portraits
Nadia & Alex (and I) went back around the park after their ceremony. To me, it was really special to be able to document them doing things that they love – taking walks together, feeding the ducks, and just being together. As the sun set over the lake, we wrapped up our portraits around the Lakehouse at Avondale and the park.
Intimate Wedding Reception
To end the night, Nadia & Alex enjoyed a meal with their loved ones. It was the perfect way to bring their families together officially! They held an intimate reception filled with toasts, dances, and lots of special moments with their families. It was a dream!
Congratulations, Nadia & Alex. Thank you for including me in your intimate wedding day at the Lake House at Avondale. Every moment was so special and I’m thrilled I could be there to see the start of this next chapter of your lives together!
