ellyB Atlanta Photoshoot with Mike Colon Photography

 

A few months ago we received an email from Katherine from Mike Colon Photography, wanting to collaborate on a shoot that they had coming up here in Atlanta. Ummmmm, let me think about this, a shoot with celebrity photography Mike Colon? Ummm not sure let me think about this (we did all of this while we were jumping up and down and attempting to do a cart wheel). ABSOLUTELY was all I could type. If I must say so myself, this shoot was definitely swoon worthy!

It gave us the opportunity to show off our rustic/vintage style while proving you can still be fabulous and glam!  Check out the shoot below and the rest of the images on Style Me Pretty.

Peachtree Club Atlanta Wedding – Tracey and Justin

 

Working with Tracey and Justin was an absolute pleasure.  We always know the anxiety couples may face when they are planning their wedding here in Atlanta and they are stationed in another city. I mean let’s face it, sometimes you just want to have a face to face conversation with your vendors.  Tracey was patient and understanding and just a riot on our conference calls!

Thank you Tracey and Justin for allowing us to be apart of your big day!

Atlanta Real Wedding: 103 West – Kristell and Dirk

One of my favorite details from this wedding is how amazing pretty Kristell’s pink pumps were. Just the right amount of bling and a whole lot of pink!  Kristell and Dirk were married last year here in Atlanta in an intimate catholic ceremony with a party reception over at 103 West. It was a perfect blend of families as Dirk’s family was able to experience some of Kristell’s Panamanian influences. Peep their awesome wedding images below:

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

ellyB_events_client_appreciation

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!

ellyB Events: Eclipse Screening and Atlanta Occasions Anniversary Party Review

We had such a blast working with Heather Vreeland from Atlanta Occasions Magazine on this amazing event! Heather is so passionate for anything Twilight related, so it was so fun working with her to get things just right for not only this Eclipse premiere event, but a party to celebrate the one year anniversary of Atlanta Occasions Magazine.

For the decor we decided to go with all things red and black to emulate the cover of the Eclipse book. From the candy bar, canolis filled red filling, to the color coordinated popcorn bar!  All of the labels were either hand drawn with calligraphy or branded signs with the Eclipse font to tie everything in together.

ellyB Events – Get Married: Toast to the South Soiree Pt.2

We hope you had a chance to view the first set of pictures from this amazing event. If not please click HERE. There were many great reasons to work with Stacie Francombe and the Get Married crew but the top one has to be that they gave us full creative control. Stacie knew she wanted Get Married brand’s represented throughout the event. The amazing team of vendors MADE IT HAPPEN!

All images below is from the talented David Murray Weddings. David and his wife Linda was a pleasure to work with once again!

The event took place at Opera Event Center in midtown Atlanta.  Opera is as you may have guessed it, an old Opera house.  With their opulent chandeliers and The venue is HUGE with tons of space that can be broken up to create the true experience. Since the event was for Get Married, we wanted to present decor ideas for the attendees in a wedding setting. The Opera also provided all of the lighting for the event.

We had three different cake designs displayed throughout the space. The below design was done by Perfect Wedding Cake. 2010DavidMurrayWeddings005 

I just love the simple cocktail centerpiece reflected off of the perfect linens provided by Connie Duglin Linens.  Steve Bales from Bold American did all of the fabulous design you have seen in both set of pictures. Each space had its own element and feel. My favorite are the glass ball votive holders infused with drips of bling.

Here is our ceremony look! The stage draping was done by Event Drapery with additional decor elements from Bold American. The decor served as a backdrop for our entertainer Lethal Rhythms.  Lauren from ten23 Designs did the perfect final touch with her amazing decals of the Get Married logo.  We used them through out the space on glass panels and on the dance floor.

I just had to show this image of the decor from the cabana at the Opera. It is a whole different world in this part of the venue.

The Opera also created an action station which they affectionately call the Bento Box. Guests are able to customize their food choices in place in their own personal bento box.

We used tons of great rental solutions from Event Rentals Unlimited. They are an absolute dream to work with.
