Thank you so much to Ric Mershon Photographers for providing these wonderful images from Jack’s Bar Mitzvah earlier last year.  I loved the theme of this event ~ Soccer ~ which was expertly carried out by the ultra-talented JWilbur of EventScapes!  The venue was W Hotel ~ Downtown, which has a very cool, hip vibe.  We had such an amazing group of vendors working together on this event!  The family was indeed pleased with the results. 

Giving a “shout out” to some of the other vendors involved:

I am a lover of shoes and so it’s no surprise that I love the detail shots of my brides and their shoes.  Since jewelry and most things sparkly also capture my attention, those photos are also usually some of my favorites.  I decided I wanted to take a look back at 2010 and see many of the shoes and accessories that were worn by my beautiful brides!  I want to thank the many photographers that provided the images (some were actually taken by me!).  Please take a look at the slideshow and enjoy  Janice Blackmon Events 2010 Year in Review of Shoes and Accessories!

New Couture Bridal Salon

Posted in Planning Tips and Information, Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , at 6:04 pm by JBEvents

Atlanta became the third location in the country to be lucky enough to have a Winnie Couture Bridal Salon.  In mid-October,  located conveniently in Buckhead on Peachtree Road, Winnie Couture Flagship Bridal Salon opened.  “Having debuted in Houston and Beverly Hills we are certain Atlanta will be a successful market for us.”…Jessica Hancock, Store Manager.

Once you enter the salon, you immediately feel you are in for an extraordinary experience. 

The salon is divided into the labels of collections they carry.  The Winnie Chlomin line is displayed by the year of the design, whereas the other lines are displayed according to silhouette. 

Winnie Chlomin, the co-founder of Winnie Couture, is a perfectionist.  Her styles epitomize “classic-feminine”.  Her husband, Chris Lee, was born into a family of wedding gown makers.  Bringing her creativity and his business acumen together has created a brand that has made strides since it’s inception in 2000.  In the beginning, their designs were available at various retailers, however, they decided to launch their own salons.  Houston, Texas was the first location and was opened in 2007, followed by Beverly Hills, California in 2009.  Atlanta was lucky to be the third location and we welcome Winnie Couture to the area. 

I was extremely impressed with not only the styles of the dresses, but with the level of customization available.  You can select different aspects of gowns to be incorporated into a truly one-of-a-kind gown for your special day.

They also carry a lovely selection of bridesmaids gowns – which  can also be customized.  And in limited quantities, Mother-of-the Bride dresses. 

And for those brides, looking for beautiful accessories, Winnie Couture carries those as well.  From necklaces, earrings, and bracelets to shoes and purses – you can select your complete wedding day attire at the salon.

Bridal gowns range in price from $1200 to $6900.
