Hi everyone, my name is Ginger and I’m the new girl at ellyB! Since you may not know me yet, I’d like to share a little about myself…

I’ve known for a looong time that wedding planning is something I wanted to make a career of and worked to find a path to make it happen. Well, here I am and I already have a group of amazing clients! My favorite part of the planning process is the design of the event. When I’m not in the office, I’m usually doing something to inspire me…checking out new restaurants, meeting new people, going for a run in Piedmont Park….you can get inspiration from anywhere! There’s no reason to limit your ideas to bridal magazines–check out interior design and fashion books/magazines too. You never know where a great idea can come from.

I’ve lived in Atlanta my entire life with the exception of college (Roll Tide!) and think it’s one of the best cities in the world. There are so many great neighborhoods here that no matter your style, you will find the perfect place to fit in. Whether you are from here, met here, or are just getting married here, Atlanta is the perfect setting for your own love story to unfold!

I look forward to sharing my events and adventures with you all (maybe even working with you!) but in the meantime, you can keep up with me on Twitter @ginger_ellyb!

We are one of the Top 100 Wedding Blog in the Country!!!!

At the beginning of every year we hold our breaths hoping that we have done our best in blogging.  To be honest we fell off a  bit in that arena and I promised myself, and our clients that that will change.  We will be blogging much more often and definitely just plan on having a good ole time on here.  We want to make sure you meet and know our fabulous clients, plus get to know us just a bit more.  We love what we do, the fun finds we come across and just want to share any and everything with you!

So thank you to Top 100 Wedding Blogs for honoring us three years in a row for our blog. Thank you for thinking we deserve to share the same page as some of the BEST bloggers alive in our industry (who we totally look up too!). We will continue to serve you and our industry proud!

Los Angeles Weddings – Room 40 Tasting

One of the many joys of being a party planner is that we get the opportunity to plan parties all over the world. No matter where you live, we guarantee you are steady on pursuit for a fabulous and gorgeous party!

We are beyond blessed to not only do weddings in the South and North, but 2013 will actually take us to the West Coast for our first (hopefully of many) at Vibiana. We just love love love this venue (and it helps that the couple is equally as fabulous!). Our client went to do a tasting with Room 40 a few weeks ago and was literally blown away by not only the food but the experience. By seeing these photos from

ellyB Welcomes you!

I seriously cannot believe it is November. Like seriously? Where did the year go? I mean it has been such an awesome year but give us some time to enjoy it!

This year when I attended engage12, I knew one thing I wanted to take away from the experience besides awesome friends, was a way to set ellyB apart from others in the industry.  It became easy to see the best way to do this was through our brand.  Everything a client gets from us should expose how excited we are to have us there to execute such a wonderful experience.

We seek to do this not only through printed materials, but from the settings we conduct our meetings to the little gifts they receive when they least expect it.  I can share this one as we have so much more in the pipeline (can someone say holiday gifts?).

We have been working with branding expert Sirmantha from Paper Parfait, not only has she been a dream to work with, she can make sense out of my ramblings and make it wonderful masterpieces!

Glamorous Tablescape: Sweet Raspberries and Blueberries

Last Sunday we participated in the Bridal Extravaganza Atlanta.  Seriously this is the best decision we have done all year!  Not only did we get to see so many smiling faces from our current clients that just came out to experience their first bridal show, but we got to meet so many new clients. We shared with everyone that visited our booth, tips for their big day as well as ideas to take their design to the next level.

Guests were able to try different treats from our dessert bar (pics of those treats to come soon), as well as to win a date night basket and hotel room stay!  Congrats to Courtney Bonones on her win!

When we decided to design our table, we thought about what our client’s would actually incorporate in their big day. We wanted to inspire and inspire BIG, but we wanted to also be practical!

The next day we had the honor of entering NACE Design Trends competition and we won!  YAY!  I mean the competition was FIERCE and we will showcase some of those fabulous tables as well.

ellyB Events Press Round Up

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!
