Biltmore Atlanta Wedding – Nadine and Eddy

Posted in ellyB Published, ellyb Real Weddings

What do you get when you have the ingredients of a beautiful couple, amazing friends and family, a glamorous venue, and a color palette to die for???? The beautiful wedding of Nadine and Eddy.  Nadine was such a pleasure to work with! She constantly reminded me of why I do what I do, and for that I thank you Nadine! Now I didn’t get to meet Eddy until closer to the wedding day since at that time he lived in Philly, but boy was he a hoot and just made the wedding day full of fun and laughter.

I am so excited to have inserted myself into their family, I mean come on, her niece is named Eliana too!  How fabulous.  Here are their wedding pics!

Fabulous Decor – Frosted Vases

Posted in Fantastic Finds

For years frosted vases have been put back on the shelves, this may be the time to bring them back out.  Can you imagine the possibilities? You can add that pattern you have been using throughout all of the details. You can even just keep it simple and add your monogram.

Check out I Heart Organizing for the DIY instructions!

What do you think? Would you reconsider a frosted vase?

We are so thankful for…

Posted in Uncategorized


We are so thankful for so many things and we try our best to let everyone know how thankful we are throughout the year and not just wait for this holiday to express our gratitude. But as a small reminder here is just a smidget of what we are thankful for:

  • Our family and friends – they make all things possible and makes us keep striving to make things bigger and better
  • Our clients. Let’s face it you are all the inspiration we need. All different, all unique, and all very much in love!
  • Our creative vendor teams! Working with you guys every weekend has never served as a dull moment and we make wonderful memories together!
  • Our industry partners and leaders. Without the countless mentors to look up too and media outlets to enjoy our work with, we wouldn’t be here.
  • And lastly we have to thank God. No matter who you worship, in this day in age you know that any success would not be possible without that higher being.
We are off to spend time with our families and hope you have a fabulous time enjoying the weekend with your families as well.
The ellyB family

Peachtree Club Atlanta Wedding – Tracey and Justin

Posted in ellyB Published, ellyb Real Weddings


Working with Tracey and Justin was an absolute pleasure.  We always know the anxiety couples may face when they are planning their wedding here in Atlanta and they are stationed in another city. I mean let’s face it, sometimes you just want to have a face to face conversation with your vendors.  Tracey was patient and understanding and just a riot on our conference calls!

Thank you Tracey and Justin for allowing us to be apart of your big day!

Celebrity Weddings: Real Housewives of Atlanta – Kim Zolciak

Posted in Celebrity Wedding Pics


We all know by now that Kim Zolciak from Real Housewives of Atlanta fame wore a $58,000 Baracci gown that she purchased from PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com, but did you know she wore two other gowns including a jumpsuit made by the oh so fabulous Pnina Tornai?  Also I was pretty surprised to learn that the estimate price tag on the wedding day has been placed at one million! WHOAH!

Check out the looks below:

One is not enough: Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak wore not one but three wedding outfits for her $1 million nuptials to Kroy Biermann, here she is seen in her first wedding gown worth $58,000

Second frock: At her reception the reality star switched dresses, putting another pearl and Swarovski crystals creation, this time a $18,000 mermaid style gown designed by Pnina Tornai of Say Yes to the Dress fame

I would do anything to fix her veil before she took this picture!

Third time lucky: Kim kept with the frou-frou theme for her third ensemble, opting for a $16,000 backless jumpsuit by the same designer

I need to know how you feel about this jumpsuit? Is this something she could have saved to possibly wear on her honeymoon?


I must give a shout out to Highland Bakery for the fabulous cake they designed worth a whopping $14,000!

Atlanta Real Wedding: 103 West – Kristell and Dirk

Posted in ellyb Real Weddings

One of my favorite details from this wedding is how amazing pretty Kristell’s pink pumps were. Just the right amount of bling and a whole lot of pink!  Kristell and Dirk were married last year here in Atlanta in an intimate catholic ceremony with a party reception over at 103 West. It was a perfect blend of families as Dirk’s family was able to experience some of Kristell’s Panamanian influences. Peep their awesome wedding images below:

ellyB Events Press Round Up

Posted in ellyB News, ellyB Published, ellyb Real Weddings

Although this is November the month of thanks, I am really thankful all year round. Some days my life feels like a fairytale and some days its just as rough as the next person, but no matter what I am thankful for everything I go through. I am thankful to all of my wonderful editors I have been fortunate to meet and continue to grow relationships with.

I wanted to share with you some press we received recently from different media outlets. All amazing in their own way and I am uber proud to see our names on their glossy pages and blog posts.

The ladies at Southern Weddings know how much I adore them. We provided the perfect tips on how to have a southern wedding.  Imagine our surprise as our names are listed amongst some of the top in the industry that I truly look up too like David Beahm and Todd Fiscus. I think I died and went to idol heaven once I saw that.  Everyone please say a prayer and send good vibes to Southern Weddings editor Lara Casey as she prepares for the birth of her baby girl Grace on 11/11//11. We love you Lara!

Happy Friday all!  We are so excited to share Melissa and Bobby’s engagement session with you.  I just love working with others in the wedding industry so I am super pumped to help Melissa, a wedding photographer from Melissa Prosser Photography, out on her big day.  We are having a blast incorporating unique and meaningful details that have never been seen in the wedding world before.
