Romantic Piedmont Park Atlanta Georgia Elopement

Romance in the park

It’s August in the south, but it has been fairly tolerable. Sunday I braved the heat and humidity with Rachael and Caleb for this gorgeous styled Atlanta Georgia Elopement. We went to Piedmont Park in Atlanta. The inspiration for the shoot was a classy romance with pink hues for late summer. I adore how it all came together. Right down to the last minute change in plans on where we got ready. Big shout out to my girl Hannah Washington for letting us borrow a room in her new apartment, on the day she moved in. One of the things I love about coming together with creatives is what you can create. It was so fun putting together this shoot and working with a team of vendors who can make dreams come true for any bride on her big day. One of my favorite things about being a photographer is that I get to document all the hard work that goes into making wedding day dreams come true, from incredible vendors. Check out the list of talented vendors that participated below the images and give them some love!

Piedmont Park History

Piedmont Park in Atlanta, Georgia is an incredible place. A piece of quiet in the middle of a booming metropolis. Piedmont Park’s grand history spans over the course of nearly two centuries. Since 1822, Piedmont Park has not stopped evolving. From forest, then farm, to a fairground and suburban park, and finally to the urban park that it is today. In 1834, Samuel and Sarah Walker bought the land for $450. In 1857, their son Benjamin Walker acquired the farm from his father. Many expositions and fairs were hosed at Piedmont Park during the following years, most notably the Piedmont Exposition of 1887 and the Cotton States and International Exposition of 1895.

The Park Today

On June 15, 1904, the City of Atlanta purchased Piedmont Park. Over the last century, the park has changed many things including closing it to through traffic making it a pedestrian-friendly park and using it for things such as concerts and festivals, like The Dogwood Festival (est. 1936).  Increased park usage coupled with a decrease in city budgets led to a distinct deterioration of Piedmont Park. In 1989, the Piedmont Park Conservancy was created. They are dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the park. In 1992, The Conservancy joined with the City of Atlanta, making official the public-private partnership and mutual goals to rehabilitate and maintain Piedmont Park. Through its member support, they help to keep Piedmont Park safe, clean and beautiful.
