I have been waiting to share this wedding with you guys for a while. Every time I see these images they just make my heart smile. I remember how Kia and her mom knew their vision and how much fun we had making all the decisions for the big day. Every meeting never felt like work, it just felt like you were getting together with friends to create one special party! I puffy heart them!
We did not miss one details, from the letterpress invitations with the Atlanta skyline, to the decor and color brightening up Centennial Park for the ceremony, it was truly a fabulous day!
Take a peek of some of these amazing images from Climie and Co.
Please check out the rest of their story along with their fabulous feature on Every Last Detail blog!

In a couple of days it will be Sean and Michelle’s one year anniversary. I cannot believe how time is flying, remind me to have a conversation with God to ask him to just slow it down a bit. Back to Michelle and Sean, I heart these two, I really do. As a wedding planner I do not get the opportunity to hang out with my clients as much as I like and I plan to change that in 2012! After all they are much more than clients to me, there is no way we will lose communication because of work!
Michelle and Sean although I don’t get to connect as much as I like, please know that I tell your story often. So much so that I am about to share it now.
Michelle and Sean visited 200 Peachtree one day, although they went to many venues after, Michelle just knew in her heart this venue was for her. Since Sean is an accountant he gave me a budget we had to stick too, and another venue just worked out to fit our budget a bit better. Michelle was ok with giving up her dream place just to make it work. As far as she was concerned Sean and I put down a deposit on venue B and we were moving forward with the wedding plans. Being the angel that Michelle is, she was ok with this, after all all that mattered is that she was marrying her best friend.
But Sean being an amazing man that he is, did not want his lovely wife to be to sacrifice the place that won her heart, we moved forward with the venue of her dreams and held our little secret for weeks. I think Sean couldn’t take it anymore and squealed on himself! Yup he is just that amazing.

I never considered it work when working with Melissa and Thea. Melissa may be one of the sweetest souls I know, that could not even get upset at anyone if she tried. Thea just completes her in every way as they embark on journey after journey together. Since her mother has affectionately adopted me into the family, be prepared to see this couple a lot more on the blog in the upcoming months!
Melissa began her day getting ready at one of the most gorgeous spa’s in all of Atlanta, Spa Sentio. While the girls took their time to get ready, they sipped on champagne and transformed into fabulous divas. The ceremony took place at the beautiful Christ the King Cathedral then the guests headed to the Foundry at Puritan Mill for a night full of dancing. If you ever want to see what 400 people on the dance floor looks like, peep below!
We made sure that no detail was missed as we carried the color scheme from the clothes that Melissa wore in her save the date picture, to the mini pom poms we threw at the grand exit. It was great to see how the tangerine and plum worked so well together (we were ahead of the curve with the Pantone 2012 colors!).
Congrats to Melissa and Thea for being published in The Knot Magazine. Melissa and Thea we are forever grateful for being able to be apart of your big day! xoxo

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!
Bryson had two dinner jackets. One for the first look and another for the rest of the ceremony and reception. Men take note, you can do a dress change too!
It was our first time working with Nadia D. Photography, and needless to say she is my new bestie. Her photos are like a work of art!
They were blessed to have an amazing bridal party that made the day all about the couple and not about themselves!
Can’t forget the S’mores!
We must give thanks to our fabulous style production team!

I am pretty sure for this wedding we partied before the wedding day even began. The wedding reception took place at the Foundry at Puritan Mill and was the perfect backdrop for this fusion wedding! With almost 400 guests in attendance and over 60 people in the wedding party, everyone was on the same accord in the pursuit of just having fun and celebrating the fabulous couple’s big day. Actually I think we still have fun celebrating there day well after their June nuptials.
We have much more coverage to bring to you from their wedding day, but until then you will have to settle for the video trailer from Rodinis Films!
Fun note – I am the one in the video asking her if she loves her bouquet! LOL
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.
And of course I couldn’t have done it without my fabulous style team:

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!
This is definitely like Christmas time for me. It is always so fun and exciting to see our photos and videos from our clients from this amazing year so far! Check out the trailer from Rodinis Films (Ryan you are on a roll!), from Kimberly and Joseph’s big wedding day:
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!
