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:

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 Engagement Session: Julie and Aaron by Josh Jack Carl

 

We are so excited for Julie and Aaron’s big day! They will be having their ceremony and reception at the amazing Reid Barn in Cumming, GA this spring. Julie is so sweet and kind and has so many amazing ideas to transform her venue into the most glamorous barn anyone has ever seen. Their engagement pictures really showcase what a fun loving couple they are and their umbrella prop pays homage to their first date which involved  the pouring rain! We can’t wait to see these two tie the knot!

They are very lucky to have the fabulous Chantel as their wedding coordinator!  More on her fabulousness soon! For now enjoy the pics!

We had a blast working on our first wedding over at Montaluce winery.  Julie was a bride that knew what she wanted and gathered all of her details in order to bring her vision to life.  The end result was a fabulous wedding that was true to Julie and James’ personality.

Complete with cute and one of a kind details, everyone danced the night away!

200 Peachtree Wedding: Michelle and Sean

 

In a couple of days it will be Sean and Michelle’s one year anniversary.  I cannot believe how time is flying, remind me to have a conversation with God to ask him to just slow it down a bit.  Back to Michelle and Sean, I heart these two, I really do. As a wedding planner I do not get the opportunity to hang out with my clients as much as I like and I plan to change that in 2012!  After all they are much more than clients to me, there is no way we will lose communication because of work!

Michelle and Sean although I don’t get to connect as much as I like, please know that I tell your story often. So much so that I am about to share it now.

Michelle and Sean visited 200 Peachtree one day, although they went to many venues after, Michelle just knew in her heart this venue was for her.  Since Sean is an accountant he gave me a budget we had to stick too, and another venue just worked out to fit our budget a bit better.  Michelle was ok with giving up her dream place just to make it work. As far as she was concerned Sean and I put down a deposit on venue B and we were moving forward with the wedding plans. Being the angel that Michelle is, she was ok with this, after all all that mattered is that she was marrying her best friend.

But Sean being an amazing man that he is, did not want his lovely wife to be to sacrifice the place that won her heart, we moved forward with the venue of her dreams and held our little secret for weeks.  I think Sean couldn’t take it anymore and squealed on himself! Yup he is just that amazing.

Foundry at Puritan Mill Atlanta Wedding: Melissa and Thea

I never considered it work when working with Melissa and Thea.  Melissa may be one of the sweetest souls I know, that could not even get upset at anyone if she tried. Thea just completes her in every way as they embark on journey after journey together.  Since her mother has affectionately adopted me into the family, be prepared to see this couple a lot more on the blog in the upcoming months!

Melissa began her day getting ready at one of the most gorgeous spa’s in all of Atlanta, Spa Sentio. While the girls took their time to get ready, they sipped on champagne and transformed into fabulous divas. The ceremony took place at the beautiful Christ the King Cathedral then the guests headed to the Foundry at Puritan Mill for a night full of dancing.  If you ever want to see what 400 people on the dance floor looks like, peep below!

We made sure that no detail was missed as we carried the color scheme from the clothes that Melissa wore in her save the date picture, to the mini pom poms we threw at the grand exit. It was great to see how the tangerine and plum worked so well together (we were ahead of the curve with the Pantone 2012 colors!).

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!
