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.


I really have to thank many other vendors that helped with making this event such a huge success:

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
