Get ready to be wowed by some gorgeous wedding details! This Atlanta wedding by ABJ Photo is a stunner. The bride, Danielle, chose a pink and navy color combo which resulted in an elegant take on a traditionally preppy color palette. And for those brides out there who just can't seem to choose their very favorite gown, take a cue from Danielle and change dresses after the ceremony (I understand why she had such a hard time--both are equally beautiful)!

What was the most meaningful part of your day?
Being able to share this special moment with the friends and family we love, and seeing everyone really having a good time. It was very important to us that our guests enjoy themselves on our wedding day as much as we enjoyed sharing it with them.

Did anything funny or out of the ordinary happen?
Like a lot of weddings, it's always interesting seeing how the bouquet toss will turn out. So once I tossed it over my head and heard the commotion, I turned around to see my maid of honor diving across the floor to catch the bouquet! It was hilarious.

Tell us details of the events surrounding the wedding...

With our wedding taking place on a Sunday, we spent that Saturday doing various things with our bridal party. The gentlemen enjoyed a round of golf that morning, while the ladies got together for a bridesmaid luncheon early that afternoon. Later in the day, the rehearsal took place followed by the rehearsal dinner at Paschal's, a historic Atlanta restaurant.

How did you know your partner was "the one"?
I knew my husband was the one for me when he traveled with me and my family to visit a relative in the hospital that he had never met. His willingness to spend that time with me and my family on the road really showed that he was committed to our relationship and really loved me.

Any advice you'd give new brides who are just getting started?
I would encourage them to draft a list of attendees first and foremost so that you can have an accurate idea of how many people you will need to accomadate on your wedding day. This number sets the tone for all of your major decisions.
