Blush and Blue Wedding Inspiration – Occasions Magazine Feature

Posted in ellyB Photoshoots, ellyB Published

I cannot believe we are coming up on the end of June. Seriously where did the time fly?? We have had so many amazing things happen for us so far this year, and we cannot wait to see what the rest of the year has in store. From amazing weddings, events, and photo shoots, we have so much more to share with you!

Today we are sharing the gorgeous shoot we shot with some of the best talent Atlanta has to offer.  We were approached by Occasions Magazine to do an inspiration spread for their summer issue.  What was so amazing about this opportunity is that we were given free reign. Any color, location, feel was all up to us!  The team and I decided to use colors that you do not see often, and stage in a venue where is often seen as rustic and show how you can create a totally different feel.  Nadia D. knocked it out the park on this one!  See more below:AtlOcc_Summer2012_CoverAtl_Occ_Summer2012_Blush_Blue_Page_1

Posted in bridesmaid gifts, dessert, Favor Ideas, Personlization, Small Details

The best wedding favors are almost always the edible ones. And they’re usually something your guests can eat right away, but who wants that when you’ve already been stuffed with an amazing dinner, wedding cake and fabulous dessert bar?! Enter mason jar cookie mixes! The Mason Jar Cookie Company http://masonjarcookiecompany.com/ makes these amazing mixes that are completely customizable that you can order in either 4, 8 or 26 oz jars. You start by choosing the base cookie type: traditional, chocolate, oatmeal or peanut butter; and then choose your add-in from over 30 options, from dark chocolate chips to jelly beans. M&M’s are a popular choice for an add-in as you can get them in your wedding colors to coordinate with your wedding. The Mason Jar Cookie Company also allows you to customize the mason jars by adding a custom jar lid label, custom theme the label and also add ribbon in your wedding colors. These lil’ cookie mix mason jars are just too cute!

Summer Wedding Trend: Milkshake Bar

Posted in dessert, New Trends, Party Ideas, Sweet Ideas
Summertime is here and it’s the perfect time to get hitched. What’s a great wedding without a great reception?! With the frequent trend of dessert and candy bars, why not mix it up and surprise your guests with a treat to keep them cool, a milkshake bar!
Milkshakes are a dessert that everyone loves, especially with it being summer, it’s the perfect sweet treat to keep your guests cool and comfortable. There are so many cute ways to display and serve a milkshake bar. If you would like to have someone at the station serving and mixing up this cool treat for your guests, talk to your caterer-they will be happy to serve this treat at your reception. You could also have your caterer make the milkshakes in the onsite kitchen and then serve them as shooters in little shot glasses. Don’t forget to incorporate your wedding colors into your milkshake bar, either in the color of the ice cream or the toppings. Also, be sure to jazz up the bar with similar decor as the rest of your wedding, OR give your milkshake bar its own theme; retro 50’s ice cream parlor anyone?
