I know I say this a lot, but this wedding was absolutely amazing!!!!!

I had the pleasure of working with Katie & Brannon from the very beginning of their wedding planning.  I was able to refer them to excellent vendors that would be able to provide and produce the vision for their wedding.

Capturing the images of the day was Angela of Angela Wilson Photography.  She and her team were very detailed in the schedule of photos to be taken throughout the day.  I’m sure you will agree, the images she took which are included below are ahh-may-zing!!

The always wonderful stylists from The Moore Agency provided the make-up for the girls.  A friend of the bride, Christel, provided the hair styles for the wedding party.

The venue was the beautiful historic hotel, The Georgian Terrace

The ceremony was held in the Piedmont Ballroom.  A custom aisle runner that was midnight blue with platinum was produced to match Katie’s color scheme.  JWilbur of EventScapes, created the most gorgeous arbor where the ceremony took place.  White sheer fabrics as well as the midnight blue/platinum fabric covered the frame of the arbor softening the look while clusters of flowers were attached to the corners and in the center.  Two large and lush arrangements on pedestals flanked the ceremony area. 

One of my favorite string ensembles provided the ceremony and Cocktail Hour music, Amati Chamber Ensemble.  This group, led by Sarah Paul, is comprised of extremely talented musicians who play a variety of music genres.  They are top-notch professionals on many levels. 

The officiant, Sheila Preacher, is the Godmother of the Bride and certainly provided a very personal and touching ceremony.  The couple wrote their own vows and I have to say – they were so touching.

With a rather large guest list, we knew from the beginning that the set-up of the Ballroom would require some creativity.  Instead of planning on having a seat for every guest, we decided to have a “space” for every guest.  Various sized tables were placed inside the ballroom including tables to accommodate up to 12 guests as well as high-boy tables allowing for guests to prop while eating. JWilbur created several varieties of centerpieces ~ each of which were beautiful.  There were lush full centerpieces on some tables while others were adorned with short, square vases containing blue hydrangea.   Crystal “bling” was a common element included in the arrangements. The room was treated to uplights, provided by PPi, which gave a warm glow and added to the ambiance. 

Classic Tents provided a tent on the terrace which provided additional seating for guests.  It had clear walls on the street side allowing the view of the night sky to still be seen.

Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes provided the wedding cake.  Not only was it beautiful, but it was delicious.  The design of the cake was fashioned after the lace on Katie’s dress and had a monogram on the center layer.  The parents of the bride made a trip to Ireland a few months before the wedding and while there purchased a Crystal bride and groom cake topper directly from Waterford Crystal.

Atlanta Showstoppers provided the entertainment for the evening.  What a fabulous show they put on.  The guests were on the dance floor all night having a blast. 

Guests were treated to M&M’s in small jars as their favor.

The couple departed through a Sparkler fanfare to their awaiting Horse and Carriage from Nottingham Shire Carriage for Hire.  As they pulled away their guests cheered and passersby honked all wishing the Happy Couple congratulations.

We were so pleased to have worked with the couple and the bride’s parents!  We wish them a lifetime of Happiness!!!

Special thanks to Angela Wilson for providing these images!!!
