Atlanta Agnes Scott Wedding – Lindsey and JR

Last winter we had the pleasure of helping Lindsey and JR plan their big day. We stayed away from the traditional holiday colors and infused the neutral color palette of creams and golds for their big day.

The ceremony and reception took place on Agnes Scott campus. Lindsey and her girls rented the alumni house to get ready to avoid having to transport before the ceremony. This allowed everyone to relax and take in the big day!

Take a look at their gorgeous wedding below and in the current issue of Southern Bride Magazine.Atlanta Wedding Planner

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!!!

Romantic Neutral Event Decor – An Afternoon of Bridal Luxury

It is such a gorgeous day here in Atlanta! It reminds me of this gorgeous tablescape we did this past spring for the Atlantan Brides Magazine! We used a color palette of neutrals of ivory, champagne, peaches with a touch of mint and coral. We had such a fabulous team with us to execute this dreamy tablescape; Perfect Creations, Paper Parfait, Nuage, BBJ Linens, Not a Crumb Bakery and AFR.

We wanted to showcase that even though your event may take place in the afternoon, it does not mean you cannot do glitz and glamour with the use of sequins and ruffles. The key is to keep the luxury feeling without being too overwhelming. Consider your setting, the attendees and what emotion you are trying to convey.

W Buckhead Wedding – Magda and Israel

From the moment I sat with Maggie I knew just how special she was. Maggie is the most simple adorable person I have ever met. I made her vow to answer my calls when I have a bad day just she can cheer me up. I was uber excited when she told me she wanted to wear a black wedding gown, ARE YOU KIDDING ME! She also only wanted to celebrate with 30 of her closest friends and family that traveled from as far as Maggie’s hometown in South Africa.

Maggie and Isreal are known for entertaining so they did not want the traditional ceremony with dancefloor toasts and so on. Instead we had life size games spread throughout the space so people could mozy from game to game and enjoy. Of course in true branding fashion, their invites were custom Jenga pieces made by Paper Parfait.

Please enjoy these full of love and fun photos from the awesome David Christensen Photography!

Trolley Barn Wedding – Kaleah and Courtney

Kaleah and Courtney were married on a beautiful day last October. I am pretty sure it was one of the prettiest days of the year! We transformed the Trolley Barn into a glam yet still full of character venue. Choosing a color palette of eggplant, gray and cream, their decor was classic yet fun and playful! Kelly Lane Photography did an awesome job capturing their big day!

The couple was such a joy to work with thoughout their planning process. At no point did they lose focus on what was important – to get married!

Tea Party – Helen’s Birthday Celebration Party in Atlanta

Last year there were so many milestones and celebrations we had the pleasure of sharing with our clients. One of the most memorable was Helen’s 12.12.12 birthday bash. Helen the sweet soul that she is, decided to pick 11 of her girlfriends to celebrate with her her on her birthday and shower them with a day full of activities and gifts. The day was affectionately called “Only Twelve” and took place at the Twelve Hotel in downtown Atlanta.

Guests checked in to their hotel at 12pm and were greeted with an amazing welcome bag (more to come on this in many other posts), then hurried to change for their tea party set for twelve. They picked the perfect hat and dined on delicious bites while they got ready for a day full of surprises.

We worked with Andy Beach and Co. to secure mixmatched vintage china and carefully carried out the brand that was created for this event. The monogram was an intricate medallion design displaying twelve women in Helen’s favorite colors.


This party was also featured on Occasions Magazine website.

Atlantan Brides Magazine – Sip into Spring Event

It’s always an honor when we are asked by local media to design and plan an event for them. I mean let’s face it, they are exposed to the best of the best of our industry so they have to know the goods!  The Atlantan Brides Magazine hosts a yearly event for their advertisers. It is a time for them to get come together, talk about the latest trends and connect with other vendors they possibly did not have a chance to meet before. 

Since we were in Ruth Chris Steakhouse, I wanted to create an environment that was fresh and fun and definitely get them ready for spring time! Check out the images below from David Christen Photography!

South Carolina Wedding – Vanessa and Jonathan

This past April, Chantel from the ellyB team had the pleasures of heading to South Carolina, for the wedding of Vanessa and Jonathan. Each time Chantel discussed their vision with the team, we were so excited to hear the details for the Derby inspired yet classic wedding.  Here are some words of advice from the bride:

We did a first look because we wanted to have a special moment to ourselves before the wedding. It was a good decision because we were able to appreciate each other and the importance of the day before everyone else was fighting for our attention. We also got a lot of great shots of the two of us before the ceremony!

St. Regis Atlanta Wedding – Julie and Dave

Julie and Dave were an absolute joy to work with! Julie and Dave live in two separate states so it was imperative for Dave to get Julie help to plan their big day so she would have the guidance they needed. One thing was for sure, Julie wanted an opulent location that her out of town guests would be able to enjoy, as well as compliment her fairy tale ball gown.

When designing the wedding, we knew that we wanted everything light and airy and classic. It was important to use the blush tones, silver undertones and compliment the decor that was already in place at the St. Regis. We also wanted to add to the experience and personalization of Julie and Dave by adding the gelato cart to signify Italy where Dave proposed to Julie. We also had custom cigars for the guests to enjoy on the terrace at the St. Regis.

It was one of our first weddings with Jeremy Harwell and it was just plain awesome. We are excited each and every time we work with him!

Oh Brides Magazine and W Midtown Atlanta Hotel Shoot

Sometimes it just feels surreal. The reality is that as party/wedding planners and designers, we get to do what we love and we get to do it often! We get to get as wild and crazy as we like yet keeping it completely realistic (and sometimes unimaginable)!  We get to play with colors, textures and designs and watch them come to life!  This is exactly what we were able to do when the W Midtown Atlanta asked us to do a shoot for their upcoming season portfolio.  Together with an allstar team of vendors, we created magic!

We also shared this shoot with the this shoot with the fabulous Oh Brides Magazine which is on stands now!
