Over at Southern Weddings…

A few months ago I had the privilege of working along side Lara Casey and Emily Ayer from Bliss Event Group and . The wedding took place over at Park Tavern by Piedmont Park. The bride and groom as well as the details were just to die for!  Melissa Schollaert did an amazing job with the images. It was such a pleasure to watch how the girls connected with their clients and guests. It was also great to spend additional time with my dear friends.

Thank you for allowing me to assist Lara and Emily. As well as the shot out Southern Weddings for the mention.

ellyB Couples – Carol and Kesha engagement pictures

We are so giddy to receive the engagement pictures of Carol and Kesha from the talented photographer Amy Aragon. We are so excited for their spring commitment ceremony here in Atlanta at the Greystone.

I affectionately name all of my brides. I always pick a name that  sticks with me throughout the planning process and will remind me the things they cherish most. It is a name that we share that shows exactly who they are as individuals and how they will be on their wedding day. Carol and Kesha are my Serenity Brides. When I entered their home, there was such a calming and peaceful presence that was throughout the air that we will be replicating on their big day.  There will be heavy use of candles and other romantic elements for their guests to experience.

Here is some imagery from their spring engagement shoot

It may be the city living kid in me but I just love when couples use graffiti walls as their backdrop! Way to b unique and chic!

ellyB Weddings – Aja and Justin

On June 6th, 2008, I had the pleasure of coordinating Aja and Justin’s wedding. I am so excited to learn that the wonderful photographer Shannnon Wright was able to post pictures of the wedding this week.

Aja and Justin were surrounded by family and friends from all over the Southern region. Fraternity and sority brothers and sisters paid several tributes to the honored couple. The wedding went from a sweet enduring ceremony to a fun filled reception that kept everyone on their feet.
