Atlanta Engagement Session: Shayla and Brian by Curt Collier Photography

We just had to share our super cute couple Shayla and Brian who are getting married this May at the fabulous Ventanas here in Atlanta. The couple decided to take their pictures at their venue to give their guests just a taste of what is to come on their big day.  Along with their fabulous coordinator Khadine, they have been painting the town pink designing their modern affair!

Congrats Shayla and Brian! I cannot wait to see your vision come together.

Atlanta Ventanas Wedding: Lisa and Eric

From the moment I met with Lisa we just clicked!  In almost the year leading up to her wedding, all we did was laugh and design a wedding that was true to her and Eric’s personality. All the little touches and memories were just perfect for the big day.  It was so amazing to see two fabulous families unite and become one.  After all that is what the big day is all about!  Check out their wedding below filled with peacock details. It was so great to incorporate the little touches without being too over the top!

Atlanta Ventanas Wedding: Natalie and Donnie

On a beautiful Sunday in June, Natalie and Donnie were married at Ventanas.  Everything from the soloist singing Natalie down the aisle, to the fabulous vows recited by Donnie, added to the perfect day! The couple was surrounded by friends and loved ones and we made sure to include details that represented their travels, careers and just who they are as people!  We had fun working with two unique colors (Natalie loved purple and Donnie just had to have his red!), the end result is exactly what we imagined! Check out these amazing images from Ross Oscar Knight.

Atlanta Ventanas Wedding: Kia and Jamel

I have been waiting to share this wedding with you guys for a while.  Every time I see these images they just make my heart smile.  I remember how Kia and her mom knew their vision and how much fun we had making all the decisions for the big day.  Every meeting never felt like work, it just felt like you were getting together with friends to create one special party!  I puffy heart them! 

We did not miss one details, from the letterpress invitations with the Atlanta skyline, to the decor and color brightening up Centennial Park for the ceremony, it was truly a fabulous day!

Take a peek of some of these amazing images from Climie and Co.

Ventanas Atlanta Wedding: Fatimah and Jean

I had to ask Fatimah several times if she was a model!  I mean her height and her eyes needs to be in a magazine!  I am so grateful that their entire wedding can be found in the current issue of Bridal Guide.  I will share more of that soon.

In the meantime I have to tell you how great it was to work with Fatimah and Jean on their wedding day.  Super laid back and probably did not know what their wedding was going to look like until they walked into Ventanas.  That kind of trust that they had in this team is why we do what we do!

The couple are now expecting their bundle of joy and we continue to pray for their many blessings!

Atlanta Engagement Session: Christina and Jeremy by Milanes Photography

 

I can only think of one word when I describe these two; ADORABLE.  They are just too cute and so much fun to be around.  Jeremy is the perfect southern gentleman and dotes on Christina on hand and foot.  It is just so amazing to see these two together. 

You have to check out these super cute engagement photos taken at the Renaissance hotel in midtown Atlanta. The shoot is so fun, yet glamorous and sets the perfect tone for a date night at a luxe hotel, or just getting ready for a night out on the town.

If you want to know more about Jeremy and Christina you must check out their feature on Essence.com

Ventanas Atlanta Wedding: Christy and Tony

 

Today is Christy and Tony’s wedding anniversary so it is only fitting that I share their wedding pictures with you.  There is something about each and everyone of my client’s that I will never forget. Unfortunately this one is a sad reason.  We lost Christy’s mom a few days before the wedding.  My heart has never broken into so many pieces for one of my brides. It hurt me to no end to know how much pain Christy had to deal with on a day that was just so joyous.  But we celebrated just the way her mother would have wanted us.  No one pretended that the previous days events did not occur, in fact Christy’s brother walked down with a bouquet which we placed in the seat where her mother would have sat. Just precious.

Christy and Tony, I hope that this last year in Florida has served you well, if I know anything about you two, it did!  Enjoy your anniversary loves!  xoxo eb

Ventanas Atlanta Wedding: Asha and Bryson

 

This is one of those posts that I do not even know where to begin. Should I start off by telling you how awesome Asha and Bryson are or should I just replay their wedding day picture by picture???? Ok I just decided to do a little bit of both.

I tell Asha daily that she will be our first female President. I know she thinks I am joking but I mean it. Everyone knows her, and not one person has anything bad to say about her. She just has this presence about her that commands a room but is totally approachable at the same time. Oh let’s not forget her better half. He might as well run for Vice President right beside her because they are truly that much of a power couple!

Asha and her girls, began their day at in the penthouse suite of the Glenn Hotel in downtown Atlanta.  Asha and Bryson decided to do a first look on the roof top of the Glenn Hotel. It was just perfect, just the two of them!

ellyB Sneak Peeks! Asha and Bryson

Honestly I know I have said this maybe a million times, but my clients and I grow to be friends. I am strong believer that as a planner we have to a strong connection as well as things in common. You must be able to hold a conversation with you clients beyond just their big day. Trust me it just makes things so much easier.  Well Brasha and I have that connection. It is so crazy how awesome they are and how much I just admire them!  So with that here is the sneak peek from their big day:

 

Thanks to Nadia D for the most amazing pics!
