After meeting at a friends birthday party over a competitive game of spades, Chris came over and introduced himself to Brittany. Their mutual friend had only good things to say about him so she was not hesitant to give him her number. After a few dates, Brittany soon realized that chivalry was not dead and true love does exist.
Vacationing in the Bahamas at the alluring Cove Tower of the Atlantis, Brittany & Chris’ lives were about to change forever. Once they arrived at the hotel they hurried to their room in hopes of catching the sunset. Chris asked Brittany if she would get his phone for him, when she returned she was stopped in her tracks as Chris was down on one knee holding a ring box. She immediately burst into tears as he asked her to be his wife!
Brittany’s favorite thing about Chris is, his heart of gold. He sees the good in everyone and he always goes above the call of duty and out of his way to help anyone in need.
Chris’ favorite thing about Brittany is, her undying support. Being a professional athlete can sometimes mean facing tough challenges and he knows Brittany will be right at his side even if that means moving them across the country in the middle of the night.
Brittany & Chris’ Glamorous Wedding is beyond dazzling. Their theme of raspberry & black lace was positively extravagant. They chose the Four Seasons Hotel in Atlanta as the venue where they confessed their love for one another in front of their closest family & friends and for their glorious reception. The tables were decorated with oversized vases teeming with hydrangeas, roses & cascading orchids and orchid trees adorned with hanging tealights. It was every little detail that pulled together their theme, from the chairs each being personalized with a B & C to the menus to even the black chandeliers and raspberry colored shades.

So I have to start off this email with a conversation I had with Alyssa and Brandon after their wedding day. Brandon told me in all his 7ft glory, that the two vendors he was on the fence with is the two he enjoyed working with the most. I am spoiled to say I am one of those vendors, but the other one was my bro Ryan from Rodinis Films.
If you listen to national surveys from places like theknot.com, when they poll newlyweds, not getting a planner and videographer are their biggest regrets. I really can’t seem to understand why when planners makes sure everything is fabulous and the videographers captures all of that fabulousness in film!
As I explain to my clients, cinematography is not the same video we have seen over the years and it is not a trend that will fade anytime soon. It’s classic!
So of course I have to list a few reasons why you need video:
- Wouldn’t you love to hear what your fiancée was doing or saying as they were preparing to spend the rest of their life with you?
- How else would you be able to hear your mother’s reaction after she just put your veil on? (see video)
- Did you see all the action from the soul train line?
- What about that choreography that you practiced in your living room once a week, how will you see how it turned out?
- Did you see the look on everyone’s faces during the ceremony, nope chances are your back was turned.
- How would you be able to see that special surprise over and over again that your fiancée and planner surprised you with! (YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS VIDEO!)
Ok I can go on and on but I think this trailer from Alyssa and Brandon says it all. I heart the trailer, I heart them, oh what the heck, I heart my LIFE!
Working with this couple and Kia’s sweet mom was definitely a treat. Each and every meeting was filled with laughter and fun and never felt like we were stressed out as we were planning an amazing wedding day. Kia had only one idea when we began, she loved color. We decided to do the wedding in Atlanta’s infamous Centennial Park before heading over to Ventanas for the reception. It was so great to use all the bursts of color without having the colors compete for attention. We cannot wait to show you the images captured by Climie, but for now the awesome trailer from Rodinis Films will have to do!
We are so excited for the summer time! Not only is it just beautiful outside, but we get to indulge in all of the summer editions of the wedding magazine world out there! As always it is a treat to see our couples grace the glossy pages. Congrats to Amanda and Jason who were married last December at the Piedmont Driving Club here in Atlanta. They are featured in a two page spread in the latest edition of the Atlantan Brides Magazine. David Murray Photography did an amazing job capturing their wedding day. Their wedding was right around the holidays and we were able to execute a winter wedding without getting too kitschy. Just the way we like it!
Also congrats to Michelle and Sean on their wedding photo being featured in the Hitched section! Their wedding was this past January at 200 Peachtree, with this great shot taken in the lobby of the Ritz Carlton Downtown. Janet Howard Photography did an amazing job! We miss you guys!
If you do not have the latest copy of the Atlantan Brides, be sure to grab a copy!
In this industry, it is so important for us all to work together as a team. As most of us have learned there is no such thing as competition when it comes to event planners. We are all different and attract clients for different reasons. I am always honored to work on other planners’ events and even more excited to act as the coordinator for their wedding. Shaundra of B. Moore Events invited me to be apart of her and David’s big day and I could not have been more honored. As usual the fabulous Ross Oscar Knight already have the pics up from the wedding that occurred less than 12 hours ago (when does this man sleep?). Check out the sneak peek…
