Hunter and I had the pleasure of being the photographer for this wonderful styled shoot we did in November. Tara of "Simply Southern Weddings and Events by Tara " is who came up with the idea, and put together everything. Here is what Tara had to say of why she wanted to do this shoot.
"As a wedding planner I get to have so much fun helping brides create their one of a kind wedding! I love what "I Do"! So, recently I had a bride ask me for advise on where to host their rehearsal dinner. I became excited because I remembered watching this new, fun, and modern venue (Top Golf) being built last year and I knew this would be an ideal location for a rehearsal dinner! I made my suggestion to her, and then I went one step further and called them myself to schedule a tour. After meeting with Tara, event coordinator, I pitched an idea to her about them hosting a rehearsal dinner styled shoot that is geared towards the guys. She loved the idea and pitched it to their marketing department and they gave me the go ahead to put it together. My goal was to show couples that their is an alternative to just renting a space at a big restaurant chain that is both affordable and fun; while making the groom feel just as important as the bride. You don't even have to be good at golf, it's just a great atmosphere for hanging out the night before the big day!
I completely agree with Tara, and If I was getting married today I would definitely choose Top Golf for a reception area. We all know that the wedding day tends to be all about the bride... why not let the groom enjoy himself at Top Golf for the rehearsal. Hunter and I had a blast after the shoot hitting some balls, and enjoying some incredible food. We are looking forward to going back soon, and bringing some friends with us. We absolutely loved this idea, and hope that more people will choose Top Golf as their venue for their events!
