This week I got to shot at a great wedding venue Victoria Belle. It is a wonderful historic wedding venue. As some of you may know that I work for historic preservation company during the week. I just love the historic venues around Atlanta. The Victoria Belle is a real treat to shoot at. The owner of the venue is Vickie Belle. Her and her team were just awesome to work with and made the wedding just awesome. It was a perfect fit for the bride and groom.
Here is a Brief History of the Venue I got from their website.
"The Late Victorian Period covers the second half of the 19th century, for a portion of the true reign of Britain's Queen Victoria(1837-1901) for which this era is named. This was the time period in American architecture known for intricate and highly decorative styles such as the Second Empire, Romanesque Revival, Victorian Gothic, Queen Anne, Stick/Eastlake, Shingle, Renaissance Revival and Chateauesque. All of these styles are often described as "Victorian" and indeed many buildings of this era borrowed stylistic elements from several styles, and were not pure examples of any. The Late Victorian Period was a time of growth and change in America. Building advancements made it possible to be bigger with more complex decorative structures.An example of this architectural surge is Victoria Belle Mansion; located in the small historic town of Hogansville Georgia, which was once a booming railroad town. The expanding railroad system during this time period allowed for more products to be transported across the country at a more reasonable cost. Once unattainable luxury items could then be employed in a wide variety of more modest buildings. It was an expansive time in American culture and the buildings of this period reflect this. Victoria Belle Mansion remains true to it’s Victorian roots inside and out. Victorian stain glass windows through out the mansion are just one of those details."
