Behind the Scenes as Whitney and Brett tie the knot!!!

I wanted this blog post to be a little different from the others so I hope you enjoy it.

 Based upon where a client chooses to have their event, many times it is necessary to have what we in the industry call a “room flip” or “room transition”.  This is where the same space is used for more than one part of the event; however, the look of the space is transformed for each different segment.  That was the case with the wedding of Whitney and Brett. The changing of the room involves many people and has to happen usually in an hour or less.  For this wedding, it included removing the ceremony chairs, rolling in tables, placing the correct number of chairs at each table, having the DJ arrive and set up all of their equipment, setting of all tables with linens, décor, place settings, etc., filling of the water glasses, placing favors, table numbers and menus among other tasks.

The venue, which happens to be one of my favorites, King Plow Arts Center, was their chosen location for their ceremony and reception.  With the assistance of the vendors, this wedding was a beautiful combination of team work as well as the mixing of DIY and professional touches.  The result was stunning.

We had a photography team documenting some of the details of the day as well as showing what goes on behind the scenes during a “room flip”.  A huge thank you goes out to Rebekah and Melissa of R. Wigley Photo for shooting the images for us! They caught the JBEvents team in action as we produced this flawless event as well as capturing the room-flip.  Although the photos are not presented in a time-lapse manner, you can see how things happened to get the room ready. 

The wonderful vendors that worked together to create the awesome wedding were:

Brides Dress:  Bride Beautiful

Bridesmaids Dresses:  Bridals by Lori

Mens formal attire:  MW Tux

Venue:  King Plow Arts Center

Caterer:  Bold American

Floral designer:  Tulip

Ceremony Musician:  Keith Gehle – Classical guitar

Officiant:  Chaplain Jeremiah O’Keefe-West

Photographer:  Brenda Upton

Reception Entertainment:  D Street Entertainment

Linens:  Chair Covers and Linens

Cake:  Caryn’s Cakes

Cookies:  Friend of the family

Transportation:  Cooper-Atlanta

The bride provided many of the décor items for her vision.  To keep with her rustic, chic theme, Whitney provided lanterns which were incorporated into the centerpiece designs.  A ton of candles were used and especially in that venue it provides such a stunning glowing effect. 

Her father crafted several items which were used in the décor as well as creating custom wine bottle stoppers for all of the guests.  They were a huge hit!

This group – and I have to say led by the Father of the Bride, were into having fun.  Not only did the Father’s toast have everyone laughing hysterically when he provided Brett with the dowry of a blow-up sheep and a rubber chicken – but then later in the evening, the Father and the groomsmen donned ZZ Top like beards and hats and did a little song and dance for the crowd.   

The couple made their escape amid sparklers into their waiting car where they drove off into the night as they begin their life as a happily married couple!

We thank Whitney and Brett for allowing us to be a part of their wedding day and wish them a lifetime of Happiness!
