ELLYB SNEAK PEEKS: TASHIEKA AND DAVID’S SNEAK PEEK

Tashieka’s fun loving and vivacious essence complemented David’s charismatic and animated spirit.  The warmth of this couple not only warmed my heart, but also warmed the hearts of all their guests. It was such fun working on their wedding. Here is a sneak peek of their enchanted day by Erik Moore Media.

 

ELLYB SNEAK PEEKS: LISA AND RAVI’S TRAILER

Working with this couple was such a blessing. Every single meeting and FaceTime call were full of laughter and fun. Despite the fact they both lived out of town, I felt honored that they entrusted me to help create such a special day not only for them, but also for their families. From the ceremony which was held at Holy Spirit Catholic Church to the reception at the fabulous Georgia Aquarium, the entire day was full of color, love and excitement.  Can’t wait to share their images from Chelsea Patricia. In the mean time enjoy this thrilling trailer from Rasan Amintha.

 

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!

Oh Brides Bridal Bash – ellyB Events and Utopian Events

With the introduction of Oh Brides Magazine, the ellyB Events team have visited and made some amazing vendor friends from all parts of Georgia! We were elated to participate in Oh Bride’s Magazine Bridal Bash a few weeks ago.  Bridal Bash is the biggest bridal show in Middle Georgia held in Macon.  We were able to showcase great ideas for brides to be in that area and give ideas on how to glam up even the most tradtional wedding venues.

Khadine from ellyB Events team spear headed this table design with Utopian Events to bring just the amount of bling with stunning invitation design that had tons of texture.  They showcased how to incorprate bling into your event without the use of actual bling elements but reflective vases/containers with bling irredesicent table linens.  Even the chair sashes had character all on their own.

The event was a smashing success as many of the local vendors had amazing table displays and there were something there for each and every bride!

Thank you to Oh Brides Magazine for having us in your home town! Thank you to Dana Lee Jones Photography for the awesome images!

Hawaii Engagement Session: Jasmine and Trevor

Yup you heard that right! Jasmine and Trevor flew to Hawaii for their engagement pictures and a bit of R&R. See both Trevor and Jasmine are US Army Captains stationed in Afghanistan. Everyday I receive an email from Jasmine letting me know what is going on over there and how she is doing, and am always so proud of how she gushes about her soldiers and all of the ideas and awards that are presented to them to make their time over there a little bit more manageable.

They will be married here in Atlanta next June, and I cannot wait to officially meet them. Although I have threatened to go in their suitcase for one of their many travels! Thanks to Jenna at Creatrix Photography for the amazing images and taking such good care of my clients!
