Ventanas Atlanta Wedding: Fatimah and Jean

I had to ask Fatimah several times if she was a model!  I mean her height and her eyes needs to be in a magazine!  I am so grateful that their entire wedding can be found in the current issue of Bridal Guide.  I will share more of that soon.

In the meantime I have to tell you how great it was to work with Fatimah and Jean on their wedding day.  Super laid back and probably did not know what their wedding was going to look like until they walked into Ventanas.  That kind of trust that they had in this team is why we do what we do!

The couple are now expecting their bundle of joy and we continue to pray for their many blessings!

Eleven 15 Events Atlanta Wedding: Tyeema and Gerik

Tyeema is just one of those girls that walks around with a smile on her face.  Even if you had not such great news to share, there was no way you were going to damper her mood.  She just made everyone happy everywhere she went.  Gerik is just amazing and makes sure to take care of Tyeema and be there when she needs him!

They were married this October at Evleven 15 Events, and boy did her crowd party!

Ventanas Atlanta Wedding: Asha and Bryson

 

This is one of those posts that I do not even know where to begin. Should I start off by telling you how awesome Asha and Bryson are or should I just replay their wedding day picture by picture???? Ok I just decided to do a little bit of both.

I tell Asha daily that she will be our first female President. I know she thinks I am joking but I mean it. Everyone knows her, and not one person has anything bad to say about her. She just has this presence about her that commands a room but is totally approachable at the same time. Oh let’s not forget her better half. He might as well run for Vice President right beside her because they are truly that much of a power couple!

Asha and her girls, began their day at in the penthouse suite of the Glenn Hotel in downtown Atlanta.  Asha and Bryson decided to do a first look on the roof top of the Glenn Hotel. It was just perfect, just the two of them!

Ayanna and Jamal were married this past May over at the newly renovated Venetian Room in downtown Atlanta. You might remember this super cute couple from their engagement session with Amy Aragon that was featured on Munaluchi Bride website a few months ago, if not click here.

The color scheme for the wedding was blueberry and raspberry complete with touches of bling.  Ayanna and Jamal you were both so easy to work with and we wish you a lifetime of happiness! You deserve it.

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!

Atlanta Real Wedding – Ventanas: Erika and Leroy PUBLISHED in Munaluchi Bride

 

A few days ago we revealed the stunning new cover of Munaluchi Bride magazine with the every so brilliant Preston Bailey. Today we are super excited to share with you our wedding feature that glossed the fabulous pages of this fabulous publication.

Working with Erika and Leroy were a dream.  They were the ones that made me read the Five Love Languages, and I must admit I learned a thing or two about love from them.  Their love for not only each other but their friends and family was completely heart warming.

Nothing beat the comment from Leroy at the end of the night, him telling me that it was all worth it, made my heart smile! Take a look at the feature 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!

Atlanta Real Wedding at the Biltmore Atlanta – Alberta and Chris Published!

We had such an amazing time with all of our 2010 couples.  Working with Alberta and Chris was a breeze.  She was an easy going bride and came to us with just a color scheme.  She trusted we would get all of her decor needs together as well as the rest of her vendors.  The results were flawless.  Not only was Alberta a beautiful bride, Chris was a dashing groom that made sure his queen was the bella of the ball.

They were married in the historic Biltmore Ballrooms here in Atlanta. We are so fortunate to see their beautiful wedding grace three pages of Occasions Magazine which is on newstands now, you don’t want to miss it.
