Charlotte's Birthday Lunch at The National - Athens, Georgia

Charlotte is a fantastic example of your favorite southern woman with style. She is the well-loved mother of Jade, local interior designer that I have had the pleasure of shooting for occasionally, and I knew this lunch at The National in honor of Charlotte's would be both fun and beautiful! 

There is nothing else in the world like family and friends around a table. The laughs and love flowed effortlessly this particular afternoon- from memories and jokes to sweet toasts. You can see in these photographs that the lighting, venue, and decor only added to the life shared around at that table.
