A Wedding affair fit for television!

“SCANDAL” Olivia Pope & Fitzgerald Grant – Styled Wedding Inspiration

Photographer & Creative Director Petronella Photography along with myself and an amazing team of creatives have dreamed up a fantasy wedding between our favorite couple on prime time tv. Just in time for last week’s mid -season premiere our favourite on-screen couple, our version of SCANDAL’s Olivia Pope & Fitzgerald Grant’s dream wedding was featured last week on Aisle Perfect.

We couldn’t be more in love with the idea of actually planning a wedding for these two! Oh my, our hearts sank to the floor while creating this amazing shoot. We hope you love it as much as us!

ellyB Events: Eclipse Screening and Atlanta Occasions Anniversary Party Review

We had such a blast working with Heather Vreeland from Atlanta Occasions Magazine on this amazing event! Heather is so passionate for anything Twilight related, so it was so fun working with her to get things just right for not only this Eclipse premiere event, but a party to celebrate the one year anniversary of Atlanta Occasions Magazine.

For the decor we decided to go with all things red and black to emulate the cover of the Eclipse book. From the candy bar, canolis filled red filling, to the color coordinated popcorn bar!  All of the labels were either hand drawn with calligraphy or branded signs with the Eclipse font to tie everything in together.

Pictures from the NotWedding 2010 Atlanta

We just wanted to thank everyone that came out and supported the NotWedding. This year was a smashing success and it was all due to the vendors and brides that came out to soak up the inspiration. The vendors were able to create 30×30 environments so not only were you able to get a tablescape for inspiration, but also experience the entire space from ceremony to reception. There were also couples for each environment.

Here are some teaser images from the amazing Hollie Lytle.

The Art of Weddings Review

As you may know earlier this month I assisted Project Runway alum Heidi Elnora exhibit her 2010 collection here in Atlanta. Ladies and Gents it was to DIE for!

Heidi decided to forego the traditional runway show for her preview and decided to pair a piece of art, gown and floral arrangement/vignette to showcase the new line. Also all fees collected that night went to the Make a Wish foundation for children. Heidi is the true definition of a southern belle.

Set in a modern art gallery, attendees were encouraged to move through the space, absorb the art and watch as live models showcases the new wedding dress designs. I am so excited Lindsay Mast from Sublime Photography has shared these images with us.

ellyb Events – Atlanta Occasions Second Cover Premiere Launch Party

We are always honored to work with Heather Vreeland from Atlanta Occasions. Each and every event is unique with great decor, food, drinks and people! Another reason why we love working with Heather is that she allows our creative juices to flow. She tells us she wants a party and we deliver!

The party was held at the lovely Ventanas and was a mix of Brides and elite Atlanta Wedding Pros.

One of the cool features about Ventanas is that they have a helipad. Brides and Grooms can use this as they enter or exit their reception.aonightout-148

Connie Duglin linens provided these amazing coral taffeta crinkle linen which matched the color of the wording on the Atlanta Occasion cover.
