Garden Wedding Style in the City | The Carlyle Venue and Miss Milly’s

Atlanta’s Wedding Venue, The Carlyle, hosts an Editorial with Miss Milly’s Event Rental & Design to inspire Southern brides!

The Carlyle Venue in Atlanta is a modern venue with gardens around the outside and in the interior courtyard.

Are you looking for a venue in Atlanta, but want to bring an English garden feel to your urban wedding location? I was honored to work with Miss Milly’s, The Carlyle Venue, Cake Envy, The Prissy Plate Company, and several other vendors and creatives to make this beautiful shoot happen. Please scroll to the end to see all of the participating vendors and how you can reach out to them and make your own dream event or wedding day! A fine art wedding is possible with the right location, and this is one of the best indoor locations for that gorgeous light and airy, filmic photography style we love!

Friends, this blog has been too long coming. Courtney at Miss Milly’s called me last summer and asked if I would be interested in working with them and other vendors to create an exclusive editorial shoot at The Carlyle Venue in Atlanta, and I jumped at the chance! Every detail was meticulously planned and coordinated by Miss Milly’s and facilitated by The Carlyle’s in house wedding coordinator. Every single creative wedding vendor brought their A-game to create a premier, luxury event design to this gorgeous urban wedding and event venue!

Immediately when you see the front of the venue, you can feel the modern industrial details giving just the right amount of gravity to a location with lush landscaping and whimsical gardens. There’s a mid century modern aesthetic to the building, and the plants and trees around the area soften it perfectly. You’re greeted inside with an enormous set of open spaces to work with, separated into a receiving area and two very large rooms that can be used for indoor ceremonies and a reception, without needing to reset a room in between! A rounded bar area allows easy access to signature cocktails or an open bar, and an enclosed courtyard with an open ceiling of black beams supports the party lights and is a perfect place for a cocktail hour! There is even a bamboo wall expertly placed to soften the space.

We began the day in the getting ready rooms and moved on to the ceremony area.

The gown from Adore Bridal, GA combined boho with traditional, and kept the botanical theme going with a leaf shaped bodice and details. Lilly made showing off this gorgeous dress so easy!

Just look at these custom made doors for the ceremony backdrop! They are covered in bright summer flowers and greenery and were just stunning for our couple.

Florals adorned every possible space and the shiplap wall behind was the perfect blank canvas for anything we could think of!
The hunter green tuxedo from Modern Gent Style was the perfect color for a garden inspired wedding!

We reused the ceremony space to showcase the gorgeous cake by Natalie Bryn at Cake Envy, which was specifically requested by Miss MIlly’s to have a texture based icing. Natalie knocked it out of the park with her gorgeous three tier round luxury cake, worthy of any wedding blog feature! Take a look below for some gorgeous images of the cake, the encircling florals and flatlays, also composed by Natalie!

Cakes by Caky Envy are always delicious!

Cocktail hour in the outdoor courtyard featured a vintage sideboard for the champagne table, with drawers full of flowers! Paired with the bamboo wall, the English Garden wedding was realized completely, and was absolutely charming!

An estate table at your reception is always a great choice to keep your family and friends close!

Private moments during the reception are perfect for extra couple’s portraits and a little extra celebration after a busy wedding day!

Bridal portraits in The Carlyle Venue’s large event space were an absolute necessity! The light, bright space with the estate table behind allowed for these amazing images of the lovely Lilly in her gown by Adore Bridal, GA.

Every detail of the gown shines against the bright summer florals and the light from the skylight and huge windows!

Brides, for any venue you choose for this light, bright style, choose a wedding location with as much natural light as possible. Notice the light colored backgrounds and neutral backdrops everywhere in this editorial. These are necessary to get this look, so make your decor and venue decisions based on the style of photography you like. My job as your photographer is to document your look, and if you love my portfolio, decor decisions are crucial to achieve that light and airy, fine art photography style!
