RLM Affairs is a new wedding venue located in Gainesville Georgia.  Resia the owner, operated it as a florist before converting the store into a full wedding venue.  The RLM Affairs wedding venue is small venue ideal for smaller weddings up 80 guest.  With a smaller venue, the locations for pictures was literally just few steps away.  There are plenty of small spots at the venue to capture beautiful images.

Resia is just an amazing planner that we truly enjoyed working with.  She has amazing detail skills that didn’t go unnoticed from us.  We loved the green vines hanging down from the ceiling making the wedding reception very unique.

Resia pretty much provides everything you need for your wedding day, from the flowers, to the cake, to the planning.  All you need to worry about is the photographer and the videographer.   We enjoyed photographing Elena & Josh at the RLM Affairs wedding venue.

Wedding Photography at RLM Affairs Wedding

We were only photography Elena & Josh wedding for 6 hours of coverage, which started at getting ready.  They didn’t have an sort of sparkler exit nor any sort of bouquet toss or garter toss.  Which is ok, since most weddings now don’t have every small details of a traditional wedding.

I had the opportunity to focus on getting ready for groom and groomsmen.  The RLM Affairs groom’s room has an unique look to it, which I really enjoyed.  The bride’s room was even more unique with a full size mirror for the bride to get ready in.

Being creative inside RLM Affairs Venue

There are two spots inside the RLM Affairs venue that we just had to take advantage of.  The way Resia setup the bride and groom’s dinner table and the hallway right before the bride and groom’s room.

Josh actually asked us if we could capture a image of just him and Elena in the hallway, otherwise we wouldn’t have even notice the hallway.

Being Creative Outside

I have always wanted to do something creative with the spot where we did the first look for the bride and groom.  I had vision this while we were shooting early.  My idea was to color the tree branches with a red color (matching the brides flowers) with them inside.

This was the first time I tried this, and I mention to Elena & Josh that this image may or may not turn out great.  But it all starts with an idea.

It’s true that I am a non traditional photographer simply because I rather spend the time and effort creating something like this.  This one shot is something you want to print out on a big canvas and hang on your wall.

Ceremony & Reception

With a smaller wedding, the ceremony and reception both went by quickly.  Actually the ceremony went by so fast, that I was questioning rather it was done or not.

Elena & Josh didn’t have a bouquet toss or gather toss, and went straight into the grand entrance along with the first dance for both groom and bride with mother and father.

RLM Affairs is an amazing wedding venue located in Gainesville Georgia.  Great for smaller wedding with guest under the 100 range.  Make sure you talk to Resia to see how she can help with your planning.
