A garden is a beautiful spot for a wedding.
And Atlanta's Cator Woolford Gardens is a terrific wedding venue. Toni and Thomas chose the garden for their late October wedding and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. My favorite spot at the venue is the stone stairs. Check out this dramatic shot of Toni and her gown.
Venue rental of the Garden contributes to The Frazer Center and their non-profit work for children and adults with developmental disabilities. So, host your wedding there and feel good that you are directly supporting a worthy cause.
Look how handsome Thomas is on the steps!
Toni's choice of a bold color combination for her flowers held its own among the vibrant green of the garden.
Burgundy dahlias, gold chrysathumums, peach stock, and deep red ranunculus blooms were accented by peach hypericum berries, ivory gomphrena and dark agonis foliage.
Her wedding invitations set the stage for these bold colors.
Thomas and his groomsmen were decked out in grey suits. He also had two groomswomen who chose their own complementary looks.

and Mom with a quick sip enjoyed an evening in the garden.
Toni placed a table under the natural stone arbor altar area in tribute to relatives who had passed.
"Wish you were here" table.
Guests shared best wishes for the couple on jenga tiles.
Guitar tunes in the Garden as guests arrived.
Table numbers were framed and accompanied by quotes from Toni and Thomas' favorite books or movies about love such as "When Harry Met Sally", "The Notebook", and "Stranger in a Strange Land".
Mercury glass vases of silver and copper featured garden style floral arrangements for the wedding party and guest tables.
Those stairs again!
After dinner and dancing, donuts are always a good way to end the evening.
Guests were treated to tiny succulents as a "garden" thank you for joining in the celebration.
Many excellent vendors combined to make this Fall Garden wedding a success.
Cheers to Toni &Thomas!
