This wedding combines some of my favorite things; the BEACH and life-long friends! 

I was super excited to help plan and produce Morgan & Jesse’s wedding.  Jesse is the son of my best-friend and the 2nd sibling in the family that I’ve had the pleasure of working with.  

A unique touch that was in keeping with the beach theme, was that the guys wore starfish instead of a flower boutonniere.

The Sandbar Restaurant and The Studio at Gulf and Pine on Anna Maria Island were selected as the venue.  The ceremony took place on the beach right at sunset.  It was gorgeous.  The couple was so adorable exchanging vows ~ you could feel their love all around.

As soon as the ceremony was over, while guests were making their way over to the reception venue, some lovely sunset photos of the couple and the wedding party were captured by the photographer, Ted West.  

The guests were asked to write a message for the couple and place it in a bottle instead of a traditional guest book.  The couple will read the messages on their 1st Anniversary!!

Guests dined on a delicious array of food provided by the venue while DJ Peyt Dewar spun hits beckoning guests to the dance floor. 

The beach-themed wedding cake was not only beautiful but very tasteful as well. 

The recipients of the bouquet toss and garter throw which happen to be the groom’s sister and future brother-in-law are making good on the tradition of being the next couple to marry AND I’m thrilled to be producing that wedding as well.  

Morgan & Jesse departed the reception amidst a sparkler fanfare as they departed into the night to begin their married life together!

We wish Morgan & Jesse a lifetime of happiness.  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!!

Beautiful wedding of Corey & Jeff!!

It was such a pleasure working with this couple to plan their wedding.  Everything turned out so beautifully thanks to my vendor partners.

Villa Christina/Hyatt at Perimeter Summit was the venue.  An outside wedding ceremony took place under the pavilion.  Even with a less than desirable weather forecast for the day resulting in strong winds that almost took out some of the decor, we were able to reset and during a few moments of calm, have the ceremony as planned.

Monique from Blossoms Atlanta provided the decor and it was stunning!  The bright color palette was refreshing and went perfectly with the garden atmosphere.

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed themselves during cocktail hour on the Terrace before being invited to the Ballroom where they entered a gorgeous set-up.  Luscious linens from I Do Linens graced the tables while again the floral decor created a visual appeal with the bright colors.  The couple wanted guests to enjoy the party and not feel like they had to remain at their tables throughout the reception, so we set up a lounge area that was decorated with personal pillows indicating their college team, professional sports teams and their own personalized pillows that will be used in their home. Collection Event Rentals provided the linen colored sofas and chairs along with a wood coffee table that we adorned with photos of the couple.  

Speaking of college, Mark Lotti of Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes created an amazing replica of the Ohio State stadium which was provided as the Groom’s cake.  It was a HUGE HIT!  He also designed the wedding cake that took the Bride’s breath away!

I always advise my clients to brand (personalize) their event as that is what truly makes it unique.  Corey & Jeff did just that.  The tables were named after some of their favorite restaurants and on the table sign, the story of that particular restaurant was provided.  Guests enjoyed visiting the other tables to read a little more about the couple. This truly provided a unique touch! 

EastCoast Entertainment provided the DJ services of Josh Bagley.  He did a wonderful job of keeping guests entertained and on the dance floor.

Who doesn’t love a PhotoBooth – well the guests at this wedding sure did!  ShutterBooth Atlanta provided their open booth and we selected the silver glitz backdrop to go along with the wedding decor.  Everyone had such a great time posing for the photos.

A delicious late night snack was offered to guests so that they could replenish their energy after all of the partying. Burgers fries and onion rings were a hit!

As a send off for the couple, guests lined up waving ribbon wands to wish the couple farewell. It was a beautiful wedding and guests were overheard commenting that it was the best party they have ever been to!

It was such a pleasure working with this couple!!  We wish Corey & Jeff a lifetime of Happiness!!!

Leslie & Andre’ say I DO in Grand Style!

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:00 am by JBEvents

Leslie and Andre’ selected one of Atlanta’s most beautiful venues, The Swan House and the Grand Overlook Ballroom of the Atlanta History Center.  While they may not be huge “Hunger Games” fans, the location certainly didn’t go unnoticed by their wedding guests.

I fell in love with Leslie’s dress.  It was absolutely STUNNING!!!  She had a custom head piece made to compliment her attire.  When Andre saw her for the first time, he was filled with emotion.

In lieu of a large wedding cake, the couple opted for a small cake from HH Desserts,  to be used for cutting, then a dessert display was provided for guests to enjoy.  Bold American Events provided the delicious food for the wedding as well as the tasty treats on the dessert display of a Red Velvet cake shooter, Oreo whoopie pies and Key Lime cake pops.

Event Performance provided the string ensemble for the ceremony, and DJ Jeff kept the crowd entertained throughout the evening.

Leslie and her siblings prepared a special dance for the guests and had her father join in.  This was definitely a crowd pleaser.
