Taylor & Tauren’s Romantic Wedding | The Georgian Terrace Hotel

Today’s blog is filled with romance & opulence!

What Taylor thought was a small dinner for both of their mothers to meet, turned into a night she’ll never forget filled with a surprise engagement party and the four little words every girl dreams of hearing.

Taylor & Tauren decided to have their romantic wedding at one of the most luxurious venues The Georgian Terrace Hotel in Midtown Atlanta. The lavishness of the hotel was the perfect backdrop for the ceremony and reception, featuring impeccable architecture,  dreamy ambiance & immaculate decor.

Taylor was a vision in her custom Winnie Couture Gown, her flourishing  bridal bouquet of roses & hydrangeas was finished with silk ribbon and adorned with photo charms of her grandfather. The color scheme of navy & cream with touches of gold  was featured throughout their wedding, with Taylor’s bridesmaids wearing long one shouldered gowns to Tauren’s custom Algernon Johnson tuxedo.

You can feel the love that radiates between these two hearts.

“Take time to enjoy the day with your groom. Don’t feel pressured to make everyone happy, as long as you and your husband are on the same page your wedding day will be more than you wished for”. – The BrideRomantic_Wedding_The_Georgian_Terrace_Hotel

Real Atlanta Event – ellyB and Friends Client Appreciation Event Recap

We hope that you had the most amazing Mother’s Day and if you are not a Mom, we hope you did something wonderful with all of the moms around you.

We wanted to share some exciting news. Our ellyB and Friends Client Appreciation Event was featured in the newest issue of Occasions Magazine which hit stands on May 1! It is an amazing issue so if you do not have a copy please make sure to grab it ASAP!

 Occasions Magazine - Summer 2011

ellyB_events_client_appreciation

As guests entered the gallery they were greeted with fabulous paper decor by Lucky and Lovely with decals from ten23 designs that were used throughout the space.

The stationery set the tone for the event and contained the ellyB brand story.

   

The event is not complete without matching signature drinks!

If you know me you know I love a little bit of bling!

 

So I am a little backward in this post and decided to start with my desserts first. Hey I would eat my dessert first if I was given the option. So we decided to take a room in the gallery and turn it into our very own sweetshop. There was two full walls full of desserts that the guests were able to nibble on at their leisure.

       

Now on to the cocktail hour which I affectionately dubbed the pink room!

Proof of the Pudding and Endive did an amazing job with the food and presentation as they greeted our guests.

Now on to the blue room which was the main reception area.  Not only did the DJ get the crowd going with the sounds, but Belly Dancers came out to show everyone a few moves.

Other entertainment including the very fun Halo Booth as well as this cigar lounge hosted by Lashes and Mustashes. Let’s just say we had to go for the grooms a few times.

We cannot thank our AMAZING couples enough for coming out to celebrate with us. Our vendors did an amazing job with this event, and for that we are forever eternally grateful!

Atlanta Weddings Presents: The Midtown Pop Up Shop

Atlanta_weddings_pop_up_shop

I am super excited about this event mainly because I have seen them happen in all other states and longed for it to happen locally.  I believe this will be a great event to gather ideas, shop for bride and bridal party jewelry, and some unique fashion finds. Oh and by the way, Atlanta Weddings knows how to throw a party!

We plan on stopping by so if you are going leave us a message so we can meet for cocktails.

Atlanta themed decor…Photos by Artstar Photography

I am always so amazed at the great job that Laura by Artstar does. Everything about her work seems timeless.  I guess what I love most about her photos is her attention to detail. Laura understands all of the hard work that planners and designers puts into creating or recreating a special moment. Of course we were giddy when she sent us these images from a recent Atlanta event.
