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!

Brittany & Chris’ Glamorous Wedding | Four Seasons Hotel

After meeting at a friends birthday party over a competitive game of spades, Chris came over and introduced himself to Brittany. Their mutual friend had only good things to say about him so she was not hesitant to give him her number. After a few dates, Brittany soon realized that chivalry was not dead and true love does exist.

Vacationing in the Bahamas at the alluring Cove Tower of the Atlantis, Brittany & Chris’ lives were about to change forever. Once they arrived at the hotel they hurried to their room in hopes of catching the sunset. Chris asked Brittany if she would get his phone for him, when she returned she was stopped in her tracks as Chris was down on one knee holding a ring box. She immediately burst into tears as he asked her to be his wife!

Brittany’s favorite thing about Chris is, his heart of gold. He sees the good in everyone and he always goes above the call of duty and out of his way to help anyone in need.

Chris’ favorite thing about Brittany is, her undying  support. Being a professional athlete can sometimes mean facing tough challenges and he knows Brittany will be right at his side even if that means moving them across the country in the middle of the night.

Brittany & Chris’ Glamorous Wedding is beyond dazzling. Their theme of raspberry & black lace was positively extravagant. They chose the Four Seasons Hotel in Atlanta as the venue where they confessed their love for one another in front of their closest family & friends and for their glorious reception. The tables were decorated with oversized vases teeming with hydrangeas, roses & cascading orchids and orchid trees adorned with hanging tealights. It was every little detail that pulled together their theme, from the chairs each being personalized with a B & C to the menus to even the black chandeliers and raspberry colored shades.

Raha and Kyle’s Fairytale Wedding

When a couple, bride or parents hires you to plan their wedding you never know what’s going to happen, except that you are going to work your hardest. I know, I always learn something new, whether it be something random, about myself or my craft. New friendships and bonds are formed with great people. Each couple is special and unique in their own way and Kyle and Raha are just that….special.

When I met Raha, her mom and maid of honor, initially at the Atlantan Brides Afternoon of Bridal Luxury event last March I was intrigued. Secretly I was hoping I would be the one. The one to be there when she chooses the perfect wedding dress. The one to guide them with all the little details and planning. The one to make Raha and Kyle’s fairytale wedding come true.

……and I was honored to be the one.

Here is a peak at the magic made…..

Atlanta Foundry at Puritan Mill Editorial Shoot

When a magazine approaches you to do an editorial shoot, after you jump up and down for about 30 minutes, you are now plagued on how can you think of ways to go completely against everything you have done before as well as make sure it is completely outside of the box!

Since we post so many photos of glamourous ballrooms, we do ALL kinds of weddings. No seriously we do. We do not specialize in any one form of wedding. If you had to ask me what is our speciality I would give you two words, personalization and detials. Point blank! So your style is your style and we are here to bring it to life!

Check this fun rustic shoot we created for Occasions Weddings Magazine. Complete with lighted spheres, S’mores with fire pit setup outside complete with colored marshmellows (um hello, of course the marshmellows should be branded in your color scheme as well), farm tables, mismatch vintage chairs, you name it, we brought it!!!

ELLYB SNEAK PEEKS: BRITTANY AND MITCHELL’S SNEAK PEEK

FOR THE LOVE OF PURPLE

Last week the Pantone Color Institute announced the color for the year 2014 is Radiant Orchid! Clearly they have not seen the many fabulous wedding blog posts and publications for the past two years.

All shades and variations of purple that you can imagine have made their way into the hearts of many brides and grooms. Purple in all its essence of royalty, is exuberant, glamorous, mystifying, and elegant.

As often as many of our clients have added this gorgeous color to their color palette I am still in love with it. It can be combined with so many colors. Bright colors like yellow and orange. Deep shades like navy blue, fuchsia and of course the ever so faithful metallic colors, silver, gold and copper. No matter what season or time of day the warmth of this vibrant color can fill any event with absolute love.

Here are some purple inspiring wedding pictures:

ELLYB SNEAK PEEKS: LISA AND RAVI’S TRAILER

Working with this couple was such a blessing. Every single meeting and FaceTime call were full of laughter and fun. Despite the fact they both lived out of town, I felt honored that they entrusted me to help create such a special day not only for them, but also for their families. From the ceremony which was held at Holy Spirit Catholic Church to the reception at the fabulous Georgia Aquarium, the entire day was full of color, love and excitement.  Can’t wait to share their images from Chelsea Patricia. In the mean time enjoy this thrilling trailer from Rasan Amintha.
