Sarah + Matt | Monroe, GA Wedding at the Cotton Warehouse This wedding was so much fun to photograph!  Sarah and Matt chose the endlessly cool Cotton Warehouse in Monroe for their wedding venue.  The building is an actual cotton warehouse in historic Monroe, GA that has been restored and transformed into a full service event venue.  Sarah and Matt met while they were attending Georgia Tech, and they included so many fun little nods toward Atlanta, including a rambling wreck themed grooms cake and plenty of Coca Cola for their guests to drink.  I’m sure these two are going to have a wonderful, fun-filled life together!
