I’ve had the pleasure of photographing multiple weddings at Monday Night Brewing’s OG Brewery in West Midtown. It may surprise you to know that I actually LOVE photographing at the same location with different couples! The goal becomes bringing out the aspects that each couple loves. And I get to find something new each time, of working on reflecting who the couple is in that space. These moments present an incredibly meaningful challenge to me as an artist. Plus those spaces tend to be REALLY FUN to visit! Monday Night Brewing is no exception.

Today I’ll be focusing on Monday Night Brewery weddings and their venue space three different ways with three different couples. We’ll dive into their ceremonies, portraits, and receptions to compare and contrast each aspect so you can see how you might work your day. I hope something in here inspires you as you plan your brewery wedding in Atlanta!

Niki & Morgan kept things bright and colorful, so very much in tune with their personalities! Niki’s dress was pink and purple {what a killer combination on a redhead especially, I mean come on!}. And Morgan wore awesome mermaid socks and a colorful plaid bowtie. These two got ready and did some of their portraits at their hotel, Loews Hotel Atlanta, before heading over to Monday Night Brewing. They had a first look and kept it private and pretty close to the hotel rooms. This was convenient for them, but also gave them the alone time they were looking for. Then they were able to meet their family and wedding party in the hotel lobby and head outside for portraits with them.

Leigh & Carter had a classic wardrobe with modern elements and the same goes for their timeline. For their celebration, they started out at their hotel and chose to not see each other until the ceremony. We photographed their family and wedding party photos outside of the church where the ceremony was held. Then we headed off to Westside Provisions for couple portraits and a few more wedding party shots. This meant whittling the group down to just the two of them toward the end of this part of the day, which served as a nice break for the two of them. We made sure to schedule plenty of time to play around at Westside Provisions, which has so many elements I love photographing: brick, nature, and dramatic architecture and lighting.

Rebekah & Ryan’s bright and airy wedding had some very modern elements in attire, with Rebekah’s dress being off the shoulder, her hair loose, and Ryan’s suit being light all-over. And they’re such a laidback pair, we didn’t technically have a first look at all! They wanted to keep things organic and relaxed, something most of my couples are looking for on wedding day, so once they readied at the nearby Artmore Hotel {which has such character and fun spots to photograph in}, both sides met back up at Monday Night Brewing where Ryan and Rebekah happened to run into each other again! They didn’t want anything formal or where they might feel pressured. So, this was such a perfect way to capture their reactions. We then photographed their wedding party on the Monday Night Brewing property! There are some awesome murals as well as lush trees.

Though both ceremonies took place on the main patio, the looks couldn’t be more different. Niki & Morgan’s florals were less colorful than the attire, and they chose to keep things mostly white with smaller, more compact bouquets for Niki and her side. They were married by a friend and took a shot as their unity ceremony, signifying their union.

Rebekah & Ryan’s florals were wild and loose, cascading in all directions and with a focus on greenery over flowers.

The last three thing to look at three ways with these Monday Night Brewing weddings is the send-off. Rebekah & Ryan skipped a formal send-off altogether, allowing the evening to wind down organically instead and just stopping and heading out when they felt the time was right.

Definitely lean on the wedding venue and your wedding vendors and let them know what’s important to you. Let them know how you’d like to transform the space into your own, to really reflect what’s important to the two of you. And share how you’d like it to look!
