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!

California Engagement Session: Tracey and Justin – The Bride’s Cafe…PUBLISHED!

The greatest thing is that we have clients that live all around the world and come to Atlanta to have their weddings. I get to see them in their natural environment and then how they transition and make Atlanta all of their own.  I was excited to see these pics of Tracey and Justin around downtown Los Angeles. N Phocus Photo did an amazing job!

PUBLISHED: Georgetown Engagement Session – Jawan & Will – The Bride’s Cafe

We could not end this Friday on a happier note. We were too excited to see Jawan and Will over at The Bride’s Cafe this afternoon.  Jawan and Will scoured the streets of Georgetown with their AMAZING photographer Abby Jiu for what I think are the perfect urban engagement pictures.  Their adorable dog even went along for the stroll.

Here are some of my faves:

Thank you Janie for not only running an awesome blog and featuring our clients, but thank you for providing such amazing daily inspiration! Please check out the rest of their session over on TBC.

Please check out Abby’s blog for more of her fabulous work HERE.  Abby I cannot wait to meet you and work with you in August. xoxo

ellyB Couples: Asha and Byrson featured on The Bride’s Cafe

We were truly honored and humbled to see our sweet couple Asha and Bryson featured on The Bride’s Cafe. Janie Medley runs one of the best wedding blogs full of eye candy and inspiration that I often refer too for my clients. It is truly humbling to see my very own clients on this site.  But with the fabulousness captured by Nadia D Photography of Asha and Byrson how could they not?

College sweethearts Asha and Bryson decided to do their engagement session in three location, Spellman campus, Morehouse campus and the High Museum here in Atlanta complete with a picnic on the campus. The key to a great shoot is too take your pictures in a place that actually means something to you. This will not only make you feel at ease but you will look back on your pictures 30 years from now and not feel like you chose a cheesy location that you had no connection too.

Their Atlanta Wedding will take place next April at Ventanas Atlanta and boy will it be filled with style and class.

Square Wreath

So when I had the idea of this blog I wanted it to be more than items that I sell showcased. I wanted it to be ideas that if I had to do my wedding over again I could incorporate. It would also serve as a platform for my couples to have fabulous ideas all nestled in one location. What would be the sense of letting all if my hours of research go to waste?
Today I saw on TBC a beautiful square wreath that put a whole new twist on the traditional heart shaped ones or the letters that most people have been using. It showed that you could step it outside of the box an go against the norm.
