Atlanta LDS Temple Wedding
We were so excited on August 5 to return to the Atlanta LDS Temple for our first wedding there since it was re-dedicated after being closed for two years for reconstruction. Our couple, Nicole Lakip and Morgan Hale, met in high school, but had no idea at the time that their paths would lead them to each other on this day.
For Nicole and Morgan, the wedding started two days before the official date when we all met on the grounds of the LDS Temple for their wedding portraits.
On the wedding day, we completed formal portraits with families and the wonderful wedding party in almost 100 degree weather. It was great that everyone was so cooperative and remained positive despite the blistering heat.
The wedding also gave us an opportunity to visit another interesting and unique reception venue: the Atlanta National Golf Club. The staff at Atlanta National Golf Club thankfully lent our couple and the wedding party several golf carts to help traverse the grounds, allowing us to explore photo opportunities all over the course. This method of transportation proved to be an exciting treat.
We’d like to give a personal thank you to Morgan and Nicole for giving us a tour of their Temple. The Atlanta LDS Temple was open to the public for a few weeks after completion and before the re-dedication, and we were lucky enough to see inside. Thank you, it was a truly unique opportunity.
