Jenn & Armando took advantage of everything their wedding venue had to offer. Their cotton room wedding was one of the easiest (logistically speaking) weddings to shoot as their preparation, ceremony & reception were all held at the Cotton Room.
Jenn took advantage of the Lucky Strike bridal suite, which is just outside the main building, for her and her bridesmaids to get ready. This room is perfect for medium to large size groups with a full living room area and 2 seperate dressing & makeup rooms. The makeup room has a wall to wall mirror with some of the most incredible lighting you’ll find.
While I am a guy and don’t “gush” over wedding dresses, let me tell you, Jenn’s dress was awesome! I really hope short wedding dresses become more of a thing. One of my photos of her in her dress was published by the Huffington Post, if that tells you anything. :) So let’s start making this happen (Once it’s warmer or course).
Their wedding ceremony was conducted by their friend. I’ll be honest, if that’s legal to do in your state, you should seriously consider it. Many times I’ll see a friend conduct the ceremony and an ordained minister is there to bless it, so there’s lots of options!
A couple of really cool things that may not be obvious from the photos. We took advantage of some of the cool spaces around campus. From a tattoo parlor with the bridesmaids to Beltline station for the couples portraits, a cotton room wedding has a TON of options for amazing photography!
The rest of the evening was spent with lots, and I mean LOTS of dancing, celebrating and partying with friends. I would be remiss if I didn’t give a shout out to the Cotton Room. Their in-house caterer delivers some of the best food in the triangle. Their in house planner works tirelessly to insure your wedding goes according to plans and helps out in so many ways that you’ll simply never see.
