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.

ellyb Events – Atlanta Occasions Second Cover Premiere Launch Party

We are always honored to work with Heather Vreeland from Atlanta Occasions. Each and every event is unique with great decor, food, drinks and people! Another reason why we love working with Heather is that she allows our creative juices to flow. She tells us she wants a party and we deliver!

The party was held at the lovely Ventanas and was a mix of Brides and elite Atlanta Wedding Pros.

One of the cool features about Ventanas is that they have a helipad. Brides and Grooms can use this as they enter or exit their reception.aonightout-148

Connie Duglin linens provided these amazing coral taffeta crinkle linen which matched the color of the wording on the Atlanta Occasion cover.
