Photo of the Day: Twenty-three weddings in seven hours


Twenty-three weddings were performed in seven hours on Valentine's Day at Rhodes Hall on Peachtree Street. The weddings, which cost couples up to $225, are a fundraiser for the non-profit organization the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation. The Trust's "Places in Peril" program is currently working on preserving outsider artist's Howard Finster's "Paradise Garden" in Sommerville as well as Morris Brown College's historic buildings in Atlanta.

One of the couples married (pictured above) was Shayla Clark and husband Andre DeVost. According to Shayla, "it was two minutes before we got married and the minister was explaining how everything was gonna go. I was thinking I am ready to walk down the aisle. We had been together since September. Of course, I was nervous, it's your big day with so much running around to do and you want everything to be perfect and everything was perfect. The most memorable part of the day was becoming a bride. It was something I have always dreamed about."

Four days in, Shayla says with a laugh, "the marriage is going really good."
