ellyB Events featured on Style Unveiled – Real Weddings Sabrina and Peter

Posted in Uncategorized

From the moment I met Sabrina and Peter we just connected. During the days of planning their wedding we had fun, every little detail was full of fun and we just had a good time doing it. We carried this feeling throughout their big day and made sure that not only did Sabrina and Peter have FUN but also all of their guests.

You cannot tell from these pictures but it was almost a hurricane 30 minutes before the ceremony. I took a whim and decided to wait at least 30 minutes to see if the sky would clear up, and boy did it! The sunshine was just an indication of how magical not only the day will be, but the lives that Sabrina and Peter will share.Atlanta Wedding at Barnsley Gardens

Paloma’s Nest and MM Ink Giveaway on Wedding Chicks

Posted in Uncategorized

Two of my favorite designers Paloma’s Nest and MM Ink Calligraphy have teamed to create a beautiful heirloom ring bearer bowl. What I think is best about these bowls is not only can they be carried down the aisle with your most valued treasure, but you can keep it on your nightstand and use it to hold your rings while you sleep. Moya Minns does the most adorable calligraphy and I am so excited to have her as a local resource here for Atlanta Weddings.

Head over to Wedding Chicks Blog (one of our favorites!) and enter to win their amazing giveaway which includes:

One Paloma’s Nest Calligraphy Ring Bearer Bowl
One Custom Address Stamp, Hand Lettered by MM Ink
One “Guest Book” Hand Lettered Table Sign by MM Ink

Good luck!

ellyB is hiring!

Posted in Uncategorized

I hope that you had a joyous holiday.  We took time to reflect on our many blessings we have had and spent time with friends and loved ones. We are so blessed to have amazing family and friends as well as clients. After all our clients are our family! We are now hiring Atlanta Wedding and Event planners and assistants. Interns will get their own fun post in the new year 

We have struggled over the last few weeks as exactly how this post would read. We threw out all the conventional text that accompanies a we are hiring post since nothing we do at ellyB is conventional. We are all about keeping it unique and chic and you should too! 

So here is what we are looking for:

– As our wonderful friend Mindy Weiss has mentioned, you must have the gene! That means you were born to party plan and do not think you can do it only because your own wedding was flawless.  If it was great that does not mean you are fit to handle our wonderful clients.
– You have a knack of seeing an idea and know how to take it to the next level.
– You are a dedicated and loyal individual and cannot imagine dropping an event midway in planning, you must see all of your hard work pay off at the end. 
– You understand that your weekends and nights might forever maybe non-existent
– I could go on and on but then you would ace the interview!

Here is what we are not looking for!

-Individuals that would like to see the backend of how ellyB works and access to our paperwork just so you can open up your own planning company. Want some insights? Treat me to a cup of coffee and I would love to share 
– Someone that needs to be hand held and is not self sufficient. 
– Someone that thinks this job is a glamourous as it seems on TV. 

Ok ready to know how to apply? Good!

Send us an email to hello@ellybevents.com

Please include the following:

Name and city and state
Resume
We also have a mini assignment:
Tell us based on the pictures in our portfolio and our blog posts what do you think our style is. This can be a simple paragraph. Also please attach a design board comprised of five pictures that you believe reflect our style and brand.

Good luck!   

Atlanta Wedding Venue: Lullwater Acres

Posted in Uncategorized

Earlier last month I had the wonderful opportunity to have lunch at Atlanta’s new wedding venue Lullwater Acres. This historic charming home is on acres and acres of gorgeous land with a garden to die for.  Sun in my Belly catering served a delicious lunch while we took in the breathtaking work of Amy Osaba.

The grounds are large enough to have your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception in respective places. The home lends itself to be sort of a museum with tons to explore and experience.

Here are some of the pictures from the day from Heidi from Our Labor of Love.

Unique Save the Dates – Kim and Joe’s Crossword Puzzle

Posted in Uncategorized

I think the main reason why I get along with my clients so much is that they are just like me!  They step it up a notch and do things that have not been done before, yup we try and make our own trends.  I was so excited when my clients Kim and Joe shared their invitation mock up designed by Sandi Spells designs. The crossword puzzle was so fun and most importantly, so them! They are a perfect for couples that would rather not send save the dates with their pictures.

Etsy Find: Bridesmaids Makeup Bags

Posted in Uncategorized

From time to time we like to share our Etsy finds.  We often turn to Etsy for inspiration and they just have the cutest one of a kind items.  If you have a bridesmaids or hostess that travels often and loves makeup, this makeup bag is for her.  They come in a variety of colors and the design just makes me want to grab a book and pen and begin journaling!

Another great find from Lucie Pritchard’s shop – linen placemats.  Can someone please give me an excuse to use these linen placements? Love love love them. There is something so earthy yet chic about the mat and would be perfect for a wedding shower or ladies brunch.

Accent Decor Design Days

Posted in Uncategorized

A few weeks ago I attended Accent Decor’s Design Days here in Atlanta.  It was great to learn tips and tricks from designers and explore the entire Accent Decor warehouse. Be prepared to see a lot of new designs and textured introduced at ellyB Weddings. I wanted to particularly show you this copper, gold and rose color palette. So soft yet so powerful!

Mini Foods: Mac and Cheese

Posted in Uncategorized

The main reasons why mini foods are a hit at weddings and events is due to presentation. Serving mini fries in mini fry cartons just shows how much you are paying attention to details.  If they were served in a regular plate they would not be as much of a hit.  I am totally in love at how the mac and cheese is displayed in the picture below.  IT reminds me of the little soufflé bowls that they are actually made in.

ellyB TIP: Please note that if your mini foods are being passed during cocktail hour and contain items that cannot be disposed such as forks, spoons or mini-bowls, make sure there are many trays for your guests to use at their disposal so they are not holding these items in their hands for an entire hour.

Interactive Stations: Milk and Cookie Bar

Posted in Uncategorized

We are so excited to bring you a new addition to the interactive stations category – milk and cookies!  Perfect for showers or even a late night pick up me up after a dance party reception.  I encourage you to have fun with these stations and incorporate ideas that are unique and favorites of yours.  Maybe it is a cookie recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation, a dessert that you have shared as a couple, or just the cookies you enjoy during some down time.  Chances are if you love it, your guests will too!
