Time for installment #2 of my Love In The City Series!!!

Alicia, 30 & Matt, 34 Fitch, married since 2015, are the proud owners of Brighter Affairs, one of Atlanta’s leading Event & Wedding Planning companies.  With Alicia as the Lead Planner and Matt in the DJ Booth, they consistently create something very special!  Together they have produced some incredible weddings and events and have been featured everywhere from The Knot, The Huffington Post and Rolling Out Magazine.

The success of Brighter Affairs isn’t the only special thing Alicia and Matt have cooked up… Alicia just gave birth this month to their first child, a HANDSOME baby boy named Max!

I met up with them for a Maternity Session and instantly fell in love with their calm and fun relationship.  It’s very apparent that they compliment each other well and the love and respect they have for one another other flows effortlessly!
