Romantic Neutral Event Decor – An Afternoon of Bridal Luxury

It is such a gorgeous day here in Atlanta! It reminds me of this gorgeous tablescape we did this past spring for the Atlantan Brides Magazine! We used a color palette of neutrals of ivory, champagne, peaches with a touch of mint and coral. We had such a fabulous team with us to execute this dreamy tablescape; Perfect Creations, Paper Parfait, Nuage, BBJ Linens, Not a Crumb Bakery and AFR.

We wanted to showcase that even though your event may take place in the afternoon, it does not mean you cannot do glitz and glamour with the use of sequins and ruffles. The key is to keep the luxury feeling without being too overwhelming. Consider your setting, the attendees and what emotion you are trying to convey.

Biltmore Atlanta Wedding – Nadine and Eddy

What do you get when you have the ingredients of a beautiful couple, amazing friends and family, a glamorous venue, and a color palette to die for???? The beautiful wedding of Nadine and Eddy.  Nadine was such a pleasure to work with! She constantly reminded me of why I do what I do, and for that I thank you Nadine! Now I didn’t get to meet Eddy until closer to the wedding day since at that time he lived in Philly, but boy was he a hoot and just made the wedding day full of fun and laughter.

I am so excited to have inserted myself into their family, I mean come on, her niece is named Eliana too!  How fabulous.  Here are their wedding pics!

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!

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!

So now on to the big event.  Now it is time to show off this amazing event.  Still crappy photos, so please excuse but I wanted to show you goodness. The Most Ridiculous Wedding Event Ever 2, was held at the Bookbindery.  Wedding Pros had the chance to be inspired, hang with their peers as well as brides.

Check out all of these last minute emergency kit that Mindy as and her crew display in the suite for the bride and the bridesmaids just in case they forget or need anything. Totally love the idea.

Just love all of the use of all the lounge furniture, mirrors and unique centerpieces that were used throughout space.

Loved all of the HUGE balloons that were hung throughout the Bookbindery.

Mindy’s adorable son Alex hanging with the DJ, I see how he is going to work his way in the industry!IMG_0871

In my former life, you know that I had a thing for bling. Anything that involved bling and weddings, my name was all over it!

Did you see the ring paper clip? How clever!

All the flowers ready for the bouquet making contest.

Can’t forget the drink tags.

IMG_0855

Oh hi Mindy!

tags had little diamonds attached.

Dying for these black chandeliers for my house.

For some reason although for breakfast we used ole school cafeteria trays, the awesome custom tray mats made everything look so pretty!

Even the milk cartons had style.

Custom Yogurt Parfait’s are a must!

Bag’s for the chip bar. You cannot even imagine how much of a hit this was!

IMG_0884

Oh chips are too fattening you say huh? Ok we had a fruit bar setup just for you!IMG_0887

There was a coffee station complete with lattes, cappuccino and some of the best coffee around.

Cleverly displayed cereal bar. Who wouldn’t want a trip down memory lane and enjoy classics such as froot loops, frosted flakes and cocoa puffs.

The cake divas doing their thing

My heart may have stopped when I had the opportunity to meet Elizabeth Messina. What can I say about her that hasn’t been said already? Elizabeth art makes me fall in love with love all over again.

Randy looking as dapper as ever.

this guys must have been terrified of my lack of makeup! Celebrity Eyelash Guru Ja’Maal Buster made everyone a celebrity that day.

My sister from another mutha! Dana from the Broke Ass Bride clearly had the best shades in the house.  I was secretly hoping that Fresh Hubby would break out in his Will Smith rap, no dice.IMG_0874

Mindy was having a true Oprah moment and gave out gifts to the audience every hour.IMG_0876  IMG_0877
