Griffin and Russell chose an eclectic style venue that suited their personalities just right and we couldn’t have been more happy about it! Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden, in Summerville, Georgia is everything eclectic and deeply rooted in Southern folk art.
Howard started creating his beautiful gardens in 1970. The garden itself turned into a work of art and is admired by American folk art enthusiasts from around the country. Finster most notably designed album covers for rock groups such as R.E.M. and Talking Heads and earned Record Album Cover of the year by Rolling Stone Magazine.
Already a fan of Mr. Finster’s work, we were both excited and honored to photograph one of only a handful of weddings ever held there! To say Griffin and Russell were a pleasure to be there for is an understatement! We loved every minute of it!
