Told you we had more from Asha and Bryson for you!  Asha and Bryson won the the first look contest that Atlanta Weddings Magazine was having. Asha and Bryson decided to meet on the roof deck of the Glenn Hotel and it was just as amazing as we thought it would be. Asha and Bryson was able to have a personal moment and just take in all of the seriousness and joy of the big day!

Thank you Atlanta Weddings for including myself and our clients. We are very humbled and appreciative!

Atlanta Foundry Puritan Mill Wedding – Melissa and Thea..Rodinis Films

 

I am pretty sure for this wedding we partied before the wedding day even began. The wedding reception took place at the Foundry at Puritan Mill and was the perfect backdrop for this fusion wedding! With almost 400 guests in attendance and over 60 people in the wedding party, everyone was on the same accord in the pursuit of just having fun and celebrating the fabulous couple’s big day. Actually I think we still have fun celebrating there day well after their June nuptials.

We have much more coverage to bring to you from their wedding day, but until then you will have to settle for the video trailer from Rodinis Films!

 

Fun note – I am the one in the video asking her if she loves her bouquet! LOL

Atlanta Real Wedding – Ventanas: Erika and Leroy PUBLISHED in Munaluchi Bride

 

A few days ago we revealed the stunning new cover of Munaluchi Bride magazine with the every so brilliant Preston Bailey. Today we are super excited to share with you our wedding feature that glossed the fabulous pages of this fabulous publication.

Working with Erika and Leroy were a dream.  They were the ones that made me read the Five Love Languages, and I must admit I learned a thing or two about love from them.  Their love for not only each other but their friends and family was completely heart warming.

Nothing beat the comment from Leroy at the end of the night, him telling me that it was all worth it, made my heart smile! Take a look at the feature below.

Atlanta Real Wedding at Venetian Room – Ayanna and Jamal

We have so much to share and will have tons of updates to share as well.  In the meantime we wanted to send a huge congrats to our couple from this past weekend – Ayanna and Jamal.

The couple was lucky enough to be one of the very first weddings at the newly renovated Venetian Room (formerly City Grill). I had the pleasure of working with dynamic due Aragon Photography and a slew of other awesome vendors.

Thank you to Ayanna and Jamal for trusting me with their overall wedding and design.

Stay tuned for pictures from this wedding since we did some fabulous unique designs.

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

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 Real Wedding at the Greystone: Carol and Keisha

Here is another one of our 2010 weddings.  Last spring we were excited to work with Keisha and Carol for many reasons but we loved d their love of detail and vibrant color palette.  We took a neutral venue and added bursts of color that was inspired by the peacock color scheme.  With the use of turquoise feathers, fuchsia orchids, and a dab of bling, their wedding day was all they they imagined. Their wedding was held and the beautiful Greystone nestled in Piedmont Park here in Atlanta.

Atlanta Real Wedding at the Intercontinental Atlanta: Adrienne and Nicholas

Over the next few weeks we will be bringing you some of our most recent weddings.  We hope that they give you a bit of eye candy as well as inspiration.  We also hope that this gives you a further look into our brand and planning style.

Adrienne was an awesome bride that didn’t know much about weddings and only cared about marrying her true love.  They decided to have a brunch wedding at the Intercontinental Buckhead Atlanta complete with crepe stations and other goodness.  Adrienne knew that she wanted her girls to wear peach dresses and I came up with the idea of infusing real peaches in the decor. With perfect accents of gold and ivory her wedding day vision came to life.

I will never forget holding Adrienne’s hand as she squeezed tightly right before heading down the aisle. It will be one of those special moments we cherish together.

Atlanta Real Wedding at the Biltmore Atlanta – Alberta and Chris Published!

We had such an amazing time with all of our 2010 couples.  Working with Alberta and Chris was a breeze.  She was an easy going bride and came to us with just a color scheme.  She trusted we would get all of her decor needs together as well as the rest of her vendors.  The results were flawless.  Not only was Alberta a beautiful bride, Chris was a dashing groom that made sure his queen was the bella of the ball.

They were married in the historic Biltmore Ballrooms here in Atlanta. We are so fortunate to see their beautiful wedding grace three pages of Occasions Magazine which is on newstands now, you don’t want to miss it.
