Ashley & David’s wedding at Callaway Gardens

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:51 am by JBEvents

Raindrops didn’t dampen the celebration for Ashley & David, because their love was shining bright!

The ladies began their morning with an amazing hair-stylist, Katie Hudson who created lovely styles for each of the girls.  

Jessica Williams was on hand to capture the love and beauty of the day.  We enjoyed working with her and she provided the beautiful photos you see below.  

Callaway Gardens provides a lovely backdrop for wedding celebrations.  The Ida Cason Chapel has been a favorite place of mine since I was a little girl and would visit with my family.  The chapel has a gorgeous stained-glass window that is the focal point for the couple’s vow exchange.

The reception was held at The Lodge and Spa by Marriott at Callaway Gardens. 

The color palette for the wedding were the colors of a peacock.  The bridesmaids each had a different color sash for their champagne chiffon dress to coordinate with the theme. The guest tables napkins and chair ties alternated with deep blue, purple and turquoise, creating visual interest and a very elegant look.  Each placesetting was adorned with a box of Godiva chocolates.  Flowers by Freddie provided the floral decor.

In addition to the wedding and Groom’s cake, a full dessert buffet was offered complete with a chef-attended Banana’s Foster station.  If you have a sweet-tooth – this was definitely the place to be.

Ronnie Portwood was the DJ for the evening and he kept the crowd entertained.  

As the evening came to a close, the family and friends of the couple bid them farewell through a tunnel of bubbles.  

We wish Ashley & David a lifetime of Happiness!!!  Please enjoy the photos below compliments of Jessica Williams Photography.

Wedded Bliss for Sharmeen & John!!

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 12:19 pm by JBEvents

What a sweet couple this was!  I had so much fun working with them to create their very special wedding day at Chateau Elan.

Capturing the images and memories of the day was Angie Londono.  I appreciate her sharing the images of the day for us all to enjoy!

Pamela from Design House Weddings created the lovely florals for the day.  The bouquets were just perfect and the ceremony stage was magical.  The ballroom had twinkling lights and a chandelier hung over the dance floor adding to the beauty of the decor. The sweetheart table was accented with soft draping behind the couple, a beautiful ribbon rose linen on the table and candles on the floor in front of the table creating a very romantic ambiance.

Ceremony music was provided by Antonio Allen on sax.  He was amazing and so very talented!  Everyone was mesmerized with his performance.  Even other hotel guests stopped to listen to him as the sound carried through the Atrium. He provided just the atmosphere the couple desired for this special occasion.

Rhodes Bakery provided the the wedding and groom’s cakes.  Since John is a HUGE Knicks fan, Sharmeen surprised him with his favorite team logo on the Groom’s cake.  He was indeed surprised and super excited. 

The groom’s father performed a special song for the couple during the reception which was such a special touch. 

DJ Louie & DJ Felipe kept the crowd entertained throughout the evening.  Guests had so much fun out on the dance floor.

As guests departed, they were treated to a wonderful favor bag with a poem attached and then filled with spiced cider, chocolates and a bookmark commemorating the special occasion. 

Take a look at the images below to see how beautiful this wedding was and join me in wishing Sharmeen and John a lifetime of happiness!!!
