Montaluce Atlanta Wedding – Julie and James

We had a blast working on our first wedding over at Montaluce winery.  Julie was a bride that knew what she wanted and gathered all of her details in order to bring her vision to life.  The end result was a fabulous wedding that was true to Julie and James’ personality.

Complete with cute and one of a kind details, everyone danced the night away!

Atlanta Engagement Session: Christina and Jeremy by Milanes Photography

 

I can only think of one word when I describe these two; ADORABLE.  They are just too cute and so much fun to be around.  Jeremy is the perfect southern gentleman and dotes on Christina on hand and foot.  It is just so amazing to see these two together. 

You have to check out these super cute engagement photos taken at the Renaissance hotel in midtown Atlanta. The shoot is so fun, yet glamorous and sets the perfect tone for a date night at a luxe hotel, or just getting ready for a night out on the town.

If you want to know more about Jeremy and Christina you must check out their feature on Essence.com

So we are going to let you in on a little secret. One of our goals this year was to see our fabulous couples and events on the pages of the Knot Magazine. First we were blessed to see Jessica and Sam in the Knot National issue that came out earlier this month, and now we have not one but two couples in The Knot Georgia edition. As an added bonus we even gave some savvy scoops on how to make your day that much better!  Congrats to Asha and Bryson as well as Melissa and Thea!

Atlanta Engagement Session: Katryna and Johnnie by Aragon Photography

I don’t think I have ever seen such a hot couple just strolling around Piedmont Park. With such scenic surroundings, there is no surprise as why Piedmont Park serves as the backdrop for many engagement sessions that take place here in Atlanta.  The couple decided to have a fun yet laid back shoot to truly demonstrate their personality. I think they did just that! Aragon Photography blew this shoot out of the water!  Katryna and Johnnie are getting married next October and we could not be any happier for them.

ellyB Events Press Round Up

Although this is November the month of thanks, I am really thankful all year round. Some days my life feels like a fairytale and some days its just as rough as the next person, but no matter what I am thankful for everything I go through. I am thankful to all of my wonderful editors I have been fortunate to meet and continue to grow relationships with.

I wanted to share with you some press we received recently from different media outlets. All amazing in their own way and I am uber proud to see our names on their glossy pages and blog posts.

The ladies at Southern Weddings know how much I adore them. We provided the perfect tips on how to have a southern wedding.  Imagine our surprise as our names are listed amongst some of the top in the industry that I truly look up too like David Beahm and Todd Fiscus. I think I died and went to idol heaven once I saw that.  Everyone please say a prayer and send good vibes to Southern Weddings editor Lara Casey as she prepares for the birth of her baby girl Grace on 11/11//11. We love you Lara!
