Kristina and Ray got married at the historic Taylor-Grady House on a gorgeous Monday in Athens, GA! They both share a love for the era of the 1920’s to 1940’s, and their wedding definitely captured that love. Kristina’s dress was a perfect fit for the day with her hi-low hemline and adorable blue shoes!

These two met while working on the tv show Person of Interest on the streets of NYC. They were paired together to walk across the street and at the end of the day Ray gave Kristina his number. Even though Kristina is very old fashioned, she decided to take a chance and sent him a message. The next week they met for Thai food and have spent almost ever day since together. They connected through a love of the arts, vintage times, music, and life, and they incorporated all of those things into their wedding day. It was one of the few times I have seen a couple’s personality really shine through in every aspect of their wedding day!

Kristina’s favorite memory from her wedding day was the ceremony. “After almost a year of planning it all came together! Walking down the aisle with my father, the words that were spoken by everyone who supported us and the words we spoke to each other. The music was also an important part of our vision for the ceremony and it was perfect!” Ray said his favorite memory was their first dance as well as his grandparent’s dance, and pretty much all of the dancing and music from different decades. He said, “It created the fun party we envisioned. Also seeing Kristina for the first time.”

Kristina had a pin of her great-grandmothers pinned in her dress as a special heirloom. Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1205 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1206 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1207 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1208 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1209 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1210 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1211 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1212 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1213 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1214 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1215 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1216 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1217 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1218 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1219 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1220 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1221 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1222 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1223 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1224 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1225 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1226 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1227 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1228 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1229 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1230 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1231 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1232 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1233 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1234 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1235 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1236 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1237 Social Circle Madison GA Monroe Athens wedding Photographer Taylor-Grady House_1238
