I am in LOVE with this new wedding venue right outside of Athens in Watkinsville, Georgia! Hadden Estate is located at DGD Farms where you can visit to pick delicious blueberries during the summertime.
One of the best things about this venue is that it was created to be a wedding venue! That means every building and outdoor location is built with lighting and photography in mind for your perfect wedding day.
Read more about the venue & it’s owners at their website here.
The property starts with beautiful blueberries bushes lining as far as the eye can see and the brand new DGD Farms mural! Below is the adorable white bridal cottage for the bride and her ladies to get ready on the big day!
There are two main ceremony locations available at Hadden Estate. One is under the spacious pavilion with the option of adding flowing curtains to the sides in case of rain. The other option is an outdoor lawn with beautiful landscaping! Both options have the sun setting perfectly to the side of the ceremony space for ideal lighting!
Photography secret: if the sun is setting directly behind you, it makes photos hazy! It’s best if it’s to the side so you can get gorgeous glowy light!
Next is the catering kitchen and groom suite! It’s a huge bonus that the groom and groomsmen will have their own space far from the bridal suite for the wedding day! Your caterers will also be able to prepare without stress in the spacious kitchen with an easy access side walk to the side of the reception building.
The reception space is my FAVORITE part! Hadden Estate is the perfect location for a high-end wedding with a southern charm twist.
As a wedding photographer, the white ceilings and natural light in a reception space make my heart SO HAPPY! White means better lighting, brighter images and less orange on your skin and outfits in your photos!
Not only is this a beautiful space, but it’s strategically designed as well. Complete with a projector, a serving station for catering and the cocktail hour space off to the side for easy access!
Serving stations within the reception space for easy catering access!
And lastly.. I cannot WAIT to be photographing Bride and Groom sunset portraits in these gorgeous blueberry rows SOON!
