2020 Pantone Color of the Year: Wedding Day Inspiration | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but we’re pretty big fans of the color blue around here! So when the Classic Blue was announced as the Pantone Color of the Year our hearts went pitter-patter!

We constantly find ourselves drawn to shades of blue when planning styled shoots and our eyes always light up when one of our CTP brides says her wedding colors are well any shade of blue! If you look thru our archives, you’ll find that our brides must love blue as much as we do and we aren’t mad about it one bit!! From deep blue suits to dusty blue bridesmaids dresses we love them all!

Now we know Classic Blue is the color of the year, but we’re sure we’ll be seeing LOTS of varying shades of blue all throughout the year… after all something blue is a wedding must have!!

Blue is the color of the sea and the sky so its no wonder that it is believed to have a calming effect and let’s just say a calming effect is always good on a wedding day! ūüėČ Blue is also considered to be representative of stability, loyalty, and dependability which in so many ways is also representative of the friends and family who’ll stand by your side on your special day.

From a visual standpoint, blues pop against our lush green North Georgia landscapes in the spring and summer. A deep dark blue brings richness to any summer or winter scene. While lighter blues are dainty and soften your images making wedding day details and moments look like a fairy tale scene!

Plus if you incorporate blue into your wedding day colors you’ll also have an easy checkmark off of your wedding day must-haves!

From suits to bridesmaids dresses, bridal details and wedding cakes we’ve pulled together some of our favorite ways our past brides have incorporated blue into their wedding day, to provide you a little wedding day inspiration! Enjoy!!

A Look Back at North Georgia Wedding Venues | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

Like most people, the days leading into the new year, had us feeling reflective on the places, we’ve been, the people we’ve met and the things we’ve done. Now that we’ve had some time to process it all, we’re ready to take you guys on a look back with us!

One of our favorite parts of 2019 was all of the new wedding venues our brides took us to! Plus we even got to re-visit a few we hadn’t been to in a while! We literally had a little bit of everything in 2019, waterfalls, mountains, barns, churches, farms, even a historic pink mansion! All of which were here in our North Georgia area! So we thought we would start our look back today, looking back at some of the new to us venues we had the pleasure of shooting at this past year and share some of our favorite moments there with you!

Toccoa Falls

Our first wedding of 2019 took us to Toccoa Falls, located in Toccoa, Georgia. For those of you who aren’t from our beautiful North Georgia area, Toccoa Falls is one of the tallest free-falling waterfalls east of the Mississippi River and located on the beautiful campus of Toccoa Falls College. If you’re looking for an epic location, then friend this is the spot for you! Saying I do against the setting of this beautiful waterfall is an experience not only for you and your groom but also for your guests. Guests will enjoy an easy walk to the falls and having some time to gaze upon the towering waterfall, and all while feeling the misty breeze of the water falling down. For your wedding here, you can easily bring in chairs, church pews or simply have your guests gather around you as you say your I dos! Just be sure to have a sound system complete with microphones as the roar of the falls is loud. ūüėČ Of course not only do the falls make for an epic ceremony location, but your bride and groom pictures here are also sure to be breathtaking! ūüėć

Enotah Valley Weddings and Events Center

We fell in love with the Enotah Valley and Events Center, located in Blairsville, Georgia, the minute we pulled in! With towering trees, and a stream rippling across the grounds there is a serene beauty to Enotah Valley that just can’t be beaten! The minute you step out of your car here, you’ll feel at peace and at home, and you’ll want to stay a little while longer! With beautiful rustic cabins for both the bride and groom to get ready in, you’ll be able to enjoy some downtime with your bridal party before the ceremony begins. For the ceremony, Enotah Valley has an antique car on-site to take the bride from the bridal cabin to the ceremony site. Talk about making an entrance! Plus you’ll have it on hand for some cute pictures after! The ceremony site itself is shaded by the canopy of the towering trees, making a cool spot for your guests. For the reception there is a covered patio area and rocking chairs for guests to enjoy or they can find their way into the air condition lodge!

The Walters Barn

We’ve been to The Walters Barn, before but it has been a couple of years since our last wedding there, so when we found out one of our 2019 brides was taking us back we couldn’t have been more excited! The Walters Barn is a gorgeous barn venue located in Lula, Georgia, which is practically right in our backyards! One of the things we love most about going to The Walters Barn is working with the Soirees Southern Events team there. Not only do they never disappoint with breathtaking and creative details, but they are also genuine in their care for not only their couples but also for the vendors coming in, as well as the guests attending the weddings there. Starting the day in the bridal cottage across the road from the barn, you’ll have all the comforts of home as you get ready. Heading down the beautiful drive to the barn, you’ll see rolling pastures and split rail fences. You might even get the surprise of Jack the donkey joining you for pictures! Once you arrive at the barn the quiet country landscape will take your breath away! Offering multiple ceremony sites for a ceremony set up, you could choose from having the barn, pond or trees as your backdrop/setting. Inside the barn, there’s a modern, chic rustic charm, with plenty of room for dining and dancing.¬† With a large level lawn area, you could easily set up an outdoor reception space with lawn games, such as cornhole, a giant game of Jenga, ring toss and more for guests to enjoy! Adjacent to the barn is a screened pavilion area complete with a fireplace perfect for creating a smores bar area, or for providing additional seating or setting up other reception activities like a photo booth! You and your guests will enjoy the dancing the night away here in the comfort of the air-conditioned barn but no one will mind stepping outside to take in the beauty of the sun setting and listening to the quiet of the night.

The Tate House

Do you have a love for history, antiques, glamour, and mansions… then The Tate House is a must-see!! The Tate House, also known as the Pink Palace is located in Tate, Georgia and is full of all the things luxury wedding dreams are made of! This historic mansion was built out of pink marble and is a sight to behold! Offering multiple picturesque gardens and views of the North Georgia Mountains, a garden ceremony site as well as a glass chapel option… yes, a glass chapel! With windows on all sides, you and your guests will feel like your outside while still enjoying the comfort of the indoors! Brides, your day will start getting ready in the most charming, luxurious bridal cottage, where no detail has been left out. As your ceremony closes and you and your bridal party head to pictures, guests will be given a tour of the mansion giving them a chance to take a step back in time and enjoy the beauty of the mansion. For the reception, you and your guests will head into the grand ballroom where guests will enjoy the elegance and fine dining provided by the on-site culinary team! From start to finish this all-inclusive wedding venue will check every box on your wedding venue checklist!

© Capture Thirteen Photography The Densmore Farm Wedding 2019

The Densmore Farm

The Densmore Farm is located just inside of Cleveland, Georgia and is another venue close home but for some reason, we never found ourselves there until this past fall! This North Georgia barn venue is full of rustic southern charm, from the barn to the fence lined drive and rolling pastures complete with horses, to the meadow behind the barn… there’s even a creek that run’s along the back of the meadow. This venue would be perfect in any season! Going inside the barn you’ll find it just as charming as the outside with string lights hanging from a tin ceiling it gives the effect of having a starry night sky above you as you dine and dance! With this feature, we imagine a wedding inside the barn would be just as dreamy as outside! Head upstairs to the bridal suite and you’ll find a large space for you and your girls to enjoy some time together before the day begins. There’s even a balcony off of the bridal suite for you to watch from as your guests arrive.

© Capture Thirteen Photography Koury Farms Wedding 2019

Koury Farms

Koury Farms is located in Auburn, Georgia just outside of Braselton, which makes it another venue that was close to home for us! If you are a fan of a white barn and whitewashed wood walls inside like us then this venue will also be a dream come true for you! With a large open floor plan on the inside of the barn, you’ll have plenty of room for a ceremony inside or space for a large dance floor for you and your guest to dance the night away! For outdoor options and space, there is a beautiful covered patio complete with string lights, overlooking the vineyard located just behind the barn. With this covered ceremony space, there’s no need to worry about a little rain or a little heat because guests will be shaded and sheltered from the elements! For pictures, you’ll definitely want to head out into the vineyards and take advantage of the beauty of the vines!

© Capture Thirteen Photography The Barn at Tatum Acres Wedding 2019

The Barn at Tatum Acres

A white dreamy barn on the outside and rustic charm on the inside is what you’ll find at The Barn at Tatum Acres! However, where The Barn at Tatum Acres really shows off to us is with its views! From the ceremony site, you can see for miles and miles overlooking the North Georgia mountains. The Barn at Tatum Acres is located in Jasper, Georgia close enough to the Atlanta area for guests to easily get to but far enough away to feel like a destination! The ceremony site is easily our favorite spot because of the views but there is so much more to love… such as the outdoor fireplaces for guests to warm up by on a chilly day or to enjoy a smores bar! Covered patio space for an indoor/outdoor reception space with a front porch sittin’ feel, looking over the scenic views of the property, will have guests happy to dine inside or out. Then as the sun goes down and the day’s formalities are finished the outdoor dance floor becomes the place to be! Guests will love watching the sunset and dancing beneath the glow of the string lights and a starry night sky!

If you’re looking for your dream 2020 wedding venue, maybe you’ll find your dream location in our list above! One thing is for sure though, we are so ready to see all the new places 2020 will take us, re-visit some familiar ones and meet all of the new friends it will bring us to celebrate with!

ūüôč‚Äć‚ôÄÔłŹ Who’s entering the new year with wedding dreams and plans?!

If that’s you, friend, we want to say Congratulations!!!ūüéČ We are so excited for you and this season in life!

We love all things weddings around here! What many people don’t realize about us here at Capture Thirteen is that Capture Thirteen was formed because of our love for weddings! Capture Thirteen Photography is the combined talents of photographers Alison and Brandy. (ūüĖź Hi… Alison here! ūüėČ) We each studied photography in college, and were individual photographers… crazy story we both worked for our local YMCA and never had a clue the other was a photographer or a photographer to be! Thanks to Facebook we were social media friends and were following each other’s photography there. Then one day our paths crossed again at my (Alison) cousin’s wedding when Brandy was the photographer! Then almost a year later, Brandy was looking for a second shooter for a wedding, I had just started shooting weddings, and was looking to grow my portfolio and experience, so I reached out to Brandy. The rest is kinda history!

We shot our first wedding together in September of 2012 and it was as if we had always shot together! We left that fateful wedding jokingly saying we should always shoot together and never solo again and well friends, that’s pretty much what happened! We shot our second wedding together that following May and the following January we started taking steps towards what would become Capture Thirteen just shooting weddings together… it would be another year and a half before began adding family sessions, seniors and more, making Capture Thirteen what it is today.

In a nutshell that’s how Capture Thirteen began… we’re still chasing our dreams today and would love nothing more than to fill our 2020 calendar with even more beautiful wedding days… maybe even yours!

We’re natural light photographers based out of the Northeast Georgia area between Braselton and Gainesville, Georgia,¬† serving the North Georgia area and beyond!

We offer elopement and small wedding day investments as well as full wedding day investments.

Rachel and Andrew: Koury Farms Wedding | North Georgia Wedding Photographers

Rachel and Andrew were married on a beautiful fall day at Koury Farms located in Auburn, Georgia. With family and friends by their sides, they said I do under the pavilion overlooking the vineyard. For her wedding colors, Rachel was inspired by her favorite color… purple! Shades of purple filled her day from the bridesmaid’s dresses to the flowers, even her engagement ring is a purple diamond! These purples popped beautifully against the greenery of the vineyard and the subtle hint of fall on the surrounding trees. After the I dos were said, guests made their way into the barn for a night of dining and dancing before sending the new Mr. and Mrs. off with a little sparkle!

Congratulations Rachel and Andrew!!

Kayleigh and Jon: The Densmore Farm | Cleveland, Georgia Wedding Photographers

Kayleigh and Jon were married on a beautiful fall evening at The Densmore Farm, located in Cleveland, Georgia. Kayleigh looked absolutely gorgeous in her lace sleeved wedding gown and her detailed veil. With barn doors between them and the glow of the string lights above them, Kayleigh and Jon exchanged letters and laughs just moments before their ceremony. Bridesmaids in red and groomsmen in blue popped against the greens of the meadow as Jon and Kayleigh said I do, with friends and family by their sides. Following the ceremony, everyone made their way into the barn for a fun night of dinner and dancing, before ending the evening in a sea of bubbles.

Congratulations Kayleigh and Jon!

Shannon and Seth Engagement Session | Dahlonega, Georgia Wedding Photographers

Oh Dahlonega, I don’t think there’s a season we don’t love you in!

Shannon and Seth met while in college at UNG in Dahlonega, Georgia, so for their engagement session, we headed back to our favorite little college town to meet up with them. On this beautiful fall day, we made a little circle around Dahlonega, hitting some of their favorite spots… which also happens to be some of our favorite spots! We started off down by the Yahoola Creek and then made our way to the square, where we wrapped up the evening at The Picnic Cafe. At The Picnic Cafe, they introduced us to some of the best cider we’ve ever had! We warmed up sipping hot cider and had the best time talking all things weddings, movies and Christmas tree picking with these two!

We can’t wait to head back to Dahlonega, in just a few more weeks to kick off our 2020 weddings with them!
