Atlanta Biltmore Wedding – Samantha and Charlie

There is so much I can say about these two, but one of the most important things I can say is that is that I am beyond blessed that these two are my friends for life. They trusted me, made me laugh, and was never short of personality throughout our entire planning process. Looking back at these images makes me relive the day (hey I know I am just a planner but it is my day too!), there is not a thing I would change. I hope they feel the same!



Atlanta Decatur Courthouse Wedding – Crystal and John

We have so much fun with clients that allows us to be creative and try things that we have never done before and believes in us to make the most amazing day possible!  We had no idea when we promised Crystal the that the X table design would work at the Old Decatur Courthouse. Like seriously, no clue! But by gosh did we make it work and the results were stunning if I might say so myself.  The table design was set for 92 people, and guests were so amazed to see the room set up like this after the room flip from the ceremony.

Crystal and John were such an amazing couple to work with and their love just radiated with their closest friends and family. The couple is expecting their first baby in August and we could not wish them enough luck and love!

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!

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!).

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.

Classic Party Rentals Atlanta and Opera Present…

Party in Progression!  Last month I had the privilege of attending Classic Party Rentals and Opera’s Party in Progression.  This wonderful event showcased tabletop designs from the Bold American creative team which featured Alice in Wonderland, Feminine Bling, and so much more.  We love the use of color, custom linens and outside of the box table accents to convey the different themes.Fullscreen capture 4132010 72443 PM.bmp Fullscreen capture 4132010 72708 PM.bmp Fullscreen capture 4132010 72704 PM.bmp  Fullscreen capture 4132010 72645 PM.bmp Fullscreen capture 4132010 72639 PM.bmp Fullscreen capture 4132010 72623 PM.bmp Fullscreen capture 4132010 72546 PM.bmp Fullscreen capture 4132010 72538 PM.bmp Fullscreen capture 4132010 72534 PM.bmp Fullscreen capture 4132010 72530 PM.bmp Fullscreen capture 4132010 72527 PM.bmp Fullscreen capture 4132010 72524 PM.bmp Fullscreen capture 4132010 72504 PM.bmp Fullscreen capture 4132010 72649 PM.bmp

The Art of Weddings Review

As you may know earlier this month I assisted Project Runway alum Heidi Elnora exhibit her 2010 collection here in Atlanta. Ladies and Gents it was to DIE for!

Heidi decided to forego the traditional runway show for her preview and decided to pair a piece of art, gown and floral arrangement/vignette to showcase the new line. Also all fees collected that night went to the Make a Wish foundation for children. Heidi is the true definition of a southern belle.

Set in a modern art gallery, attendees were encouraged to move through the space, absorb the art and watch as live models showcases the new wedding dress designs. I am so excited Lindsay Mast from Sublime Photography has shared these images with us.

ellyb Events – Atlanta Occasions Second Cover Premiere Launch Party

We are always honored to work with Heather Vreeland from Atlanta Occasions. Each and every event is unique with great decor, food, drinks and people! Another reason why we love working with Heather is that she allows our creative juices to flow. She tells us she wants a party and we deliver!

The party was held at the lovely Ventanas and was a mix of Brides and elite Atlanta Wedding Pros.

One of the cool features about Ventanas is that they have a helipad. Brides and Grooms can use this as they enter or exit their reception.aonightout-148

Connie Duglin linens provided these amazing coral taffeta crinkle linen which matched the color of the wording on the Atlanta Occasion cover.
