ellyB Real Weddings – Vicky and Jose

Last September we had a great time helping coordinate Vicky and Jose’s wedding in Carle’s Place New York.  It was so fun to see all of the details come to life. Jose and Vicky are huge Met’s fans and used that theme throughout the entire wedding from beginning to end. From their bridesmaids wedding dresses to the colors the Met’s themed centerpiece we used on the placecard table.

There were other unique touches throughout the evening such as the picture we tucked into Vicky’s bouquet of her father that passed away two months prior.  The sweetest mother and daughter dance took place at the reception. As well as the monogrammed baseballs complete in glass boxes with the couples monogram and wedding date. A wonderful mix of high and low centerpieces with the colors that were seen throughout the night.. Here are a few images from their amazing day.

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 – Get Married: Toast to the South Soiree Pt.1

We have just received the beautiful images from the Get Married Soiree that happened earlier this month. Stacie Francombe the President of Get Married, wanted to share their five years and climbing success of Get Married. Get Married originally started in just Atlanta and is now known nationally for their brand amongst brides and wedding pros.

The Soiree was a toast to the South, where it all began. There were tons of photo and video coverage from the event so we will break it up over several posts. Below are the images from the talented Ben Vigil. Ben is no stranger to the ellyB blog and we are always excited to showcase some more of this work.getmarried-20100208-64 getmarried-20100208-65 getmarried-20100208-02 getmarried-20100208-07getmarried-20100208-04  getmarried-20100208-12 getmarried-20100208-15 getmarried-20100208-16 getmarried-20100208-21 getmarried-20100208-22 getmarried-20100208-25 getmarried-20100208-63getmarried-20100208-29 getmarried-20100208-30 getmarried-20100208-31 getmarried-20100208-39 getmarried-20100208-43 getmarried-20100208-45 getmarried-20100208-51 getmarried-20100208-59 getmarried-20100208-60 getmarried-20100208-61 getmarried-20100208-62

Atlanta Occasions Smile Booth

So sad this is our last post covering the Atlanta Occasions Launch party. I am sure there will be many more rad parties to come soon!

So everyone knows how much I love getting into the smile booth. In fact if you look at all the pics I may be in half of them! LOL. I really let my hair down and had fun. I played with the back drop that Ashley from dolci odille designed. My gosh was it fun.

There are rules to the Smile Booth, well ones that I made up anyway;

– Have Fun!
– Make the wackiest face
– drag as many people in as possible
– click away, every pic will be a good pic
– the smile booth is always more fun with a backdrop, I had dreads in one pic and an eighties bandana in another
– Make a photo ablum/flip book from the nights events

Someone said on facebook this is blackmail for wedding pros. Everyone just had a good ole time. Check out the wacky pics from Our Labor of Love Smile Booth below:

Me and Heidi Elnora. She was too funny to be in the booth with. We strutted like we were on the next edition of Project Runway!

In the picture on the right you can see the Bridal Bar gals getting down with Amy Osaba and some of Atlanta’s top wedding planners!

Amy with Heidi from Our Labor of Love.

Heather Vreeland showing everyone how to have fun in the smile booth.

Didn’t I say we were having fun?

I just love this effect. It makes me laugh each and everytime I see it.

Pics from the Atlanta Occasions Launch Party

It is really always a pleasure working with individuals that have a passion for what they do. Every single vendor involved did an amazing job bringing together a launch party that Heather Vreeland would be proud of. Not only did the best event professionals in Atlanta come out and support, they danced the night away too! Here are some of the amazing images from Ben Vigil who has affectionately been dubbed my personal photographer since he makes me look amazing in pics!

Joel Rabe from Lethal Rhythms on the ones and twos. Can we take a moment to absorb the fab blue uplighting and swirl designs courtesy of Doc from Full Circle Lighting?

Ok let me tell you, EVERYONE got down and did the cupid shuffle.

A very glossy magazine only deserves a very glossy coffee table.

These illuminated tables set the tone! Oh and can we swoon over the sheer fabulousness of the drapes?

Heather Vreeland the diva in charge! Can I just say how much I loved her blue dress?

M Cupcakes did an amazing job with not only the cupcakes but the display.

Heather on the blue carpet!

Getting down having some fun.

Please head over to Ben’s blog to see some more amazing images from the slide show.

Thank you Heather for allowing me to be apart of such an amazing event and premiere issue.

Bridal Bar Grand Opening Pt. 3

TGIF! I am so excited today is Friday. Not only is it a gorgeous day but it is the start of a pretty amazing weekend. This will be the first time in three weeks that I will actually be at home in Atlanta. Here are the last images from David Murray Weddings from the Bridal Bar event. I stopped by Bridal Bar yesterday and we discussed all of the amazing events that are on schedule to come. This is just the beginning!

As I mentioned yesterday with the Smilebooth, photographers are now doing their own version of photo booths. David Murray Weddings do the Love Booth. Here are few pics from the love seat. Don’t forget to check out the slide show.

Disclaimer: If you see Mr. ellyB in the pics having a ball is because he was! He loves being in front of the camera.

Have a great weekend.

Sneak Peek of Bridal Bar Grand Opening Soiree

Whew I cannot believe I am up and about already! Yesterday was everything us Bridal Bar vendors hoped for and more. The food, decor and the PEOPLE were out of this world and I hope everyone enjoyed themselves. I did not have a camera with me but as of 1am pictures were already on facebook. I cannot wait to see the professional pictures from the six-seven photographers and magazines covering the event.

Thanks Layne from Sweet-n-sinful and Neal Howard for the pics.
