What a beautiful venue and setting for the wedding of the adorable couple, Ashley & Daniel!! 

The day began with the ladies having hair and make-up services while enjoying a tasty brunch at the W Hotel ~ Downtown.  Once the ladies were all beautified, they loaded up and headed over to the Georgia Aquarium where they got dressed.  The bride wore a gorgeous gown by Augusta Jones, while the bridesmaids wore floor-length black gowns that were very elegant.   

The photographer, Robin Nathan, had fun taking photos of both sides of the wedding party using the many different backgrounds found at the Aquarium. 

Separate sessions for signing of the Ketubah were held since the couple didn’t want to see each other until the ceremony. 

Your Event Solution provided the décor for the wedding.  The personal flowers were gorgeous and since the bride didn’t want to use floral décor in the reception – the use of the flowers in the ceremony really made them stand out.  The focal point of the ceremony was a stunning Chuppah of branches and twinkle lights.  It looked magical!!!

Allegro Strings provided the music for the ceremony and the Cocktail Hour.  As always, they were wonderful.

The reception décor consisted of various crystal décor pieces ~ crystal trees, branches extending out of crystal filled vases and crystal chandeliers.  The bride wanted unique centerpieces without florals, and these crystal pieces provided  just the perfect look.

The ambient lighting was provided through Active Productions.  They did a wonderful job in matching the color scheme desired by the bride and the look in the room was beautiful.

The meal consisted of several courses including a pre-selected choice of entrée of filet  or salmon.  In true Wolfgang Puck style, the food is prepared fresh and plated up to be served immediately.  The servers actually stand in a line ready to whisk the plates away as the Chefs precisely place each food selection on the plate.  The final course was a warm chocolate cake which was the dessert course and that was before the Wedding Cake was served.  This was definitely a “sweet” wedding!  Later in the evening, guests were offered their choice of several varieties of cake flavors from the Wedding Cake provided by Mark Brickman of The Baker’s Man.  The couple had bobble-heads made in their likeness which adorned the Cake Table and were a huge hit. 

The Atlanta Showstoppers, led by Glenn Carvin, kept the crowd on their feet all night long!!  Their energy was infectious and the guests had such a great time dancing to their music.

As guests were leaving, they were treated to a Candy Bar buffet that we provided.  Favorite candy varieties of the couple and their parents were offered.  There were Malted Milk Balls, Sour Patch Kids, Jordan Almonds, Skittles, M&M’s, Hershey Kisses, and Gummie Bears.  As one of our additional services, we provide the vessels, scoops and custom candy labels.  Clients can select the varieties of candy desired, and we will order the appropriate quantities.  Guests always love having a Candy buffet and they will leave your wedding with sweet reminders and memories!!!

The couple departed to a waiting limo provided by Atlantic Limousine and still had huge smiles on their face because of the amazing celebration of their new life together!!!!

We were so happy to work with this family in planning this fabulous wedding and were pleased to produce another flawless event!!

We wish a lifetime of Happiness to Ashley and Daniel!!!

Just Like Love…Butterflies were in the air!

Francine & Gordon were married on a beautiful  fall day ~ October 9, 2010 at King Plow Arts Center.

The day began with Sabrina from Luxe Beauty Company providing hair and makeup services for the Bride and her wedding party.

The bride, Francine, arrived at the King Plow Arts Center, where she was helped into her beautiful Vera Wang dress, purchased at Impressions Bridal Salon.   The dress was a strapless A-line gown with a frothy draped origami train and bottom; the first step to setting the mood for a dream.

The theme of the wedding décor was butterflies, which was incorporated in every detail including the beautiful invitations as well as throughout the ceremony and reception.  The finished look was stunning! The colors were orange and blue.  Michelle Smith, of Inviting Ideas in conjunction with Steve Bales of Bold American, created the original designs which were used in all of the wedding related stationery.  For the wedding, butterflies were used in several forms from the escort cards to the butterfly light show behind the bar.  Steve Bales of Bold American and his team, spent hours creating and transforming the look of the gallery and making it feel like you were entering into a magical forest.  Jacqueline Carlyle of Bold American, worked with the clients to create a truly special menu.  The guests selected from three different entrees each served with delectable accompaniments.  All of the guests seemed to enjoy their meal and some were so impressed with their entree that they just had to taste their neighbors if it was a different selection than what they had.  During the four-course dinner, the guests had the privilege to hear Nella Rigell play classical and celtic music on the harp.

 Steve Bales, creative director for Bold American, created a beautiful rose archway out of branches enhanced with votive candles.  This became the focal point for the ceremony and was later striking decor over one of the Estate Tables which was the Head Table.  Allegro Strings played as guests arrived and for the ceremony.  Francine walked down a curved aisle with candles outlining the path, while her guests, Gordon and a close friend, Rev. Dr. Monica Coleman, who performed the ceremony, looked at her beauty.   As Gordon said after the ceremony, “I cried a little bit. It was the dress, it was you, it was the idea that my future wife was walking down the aisle to me.”

 Francine and Gordon each had two very special people stand with them and a close friend’s child, Dylan, as their ring bearer.  He was adorable walking down the aisle with the ring pillow and of course he was very proud of himself.  Francine’s two attendants Robin and Sonya were able to decide what they wanted to wear.  Robin wore a long navy blue dress with a beaded neckline and Sonya wore a deep purple cocktail dress.

 During cocktail hour, guests enjoyed a variety of mini hors d’oeuvres and the open bar.  The main focus during cocktail hour was the beautiful escort card table.  Suspended from the ceiling was a beautiful antique bicycle with roses intertwined.   On the highboy rectangular table were 15 grass centerpieces with blue and orange butterflies suspending out of them.  On each butterfly was the guest’s name and the table number where they were to sit.

 King Plow Arts Center has a beautiful gallery and outdoor patio that is perfect for weddings as well as other special events. With the exposed brick throughout the gallery and the picturesque trees and flowers outside, it is the perfect spot for photos. Being situated in the Midtown/West Side area, it is a highly sought-after venue. 

One way to create interest in the reception set-up, is to incorporate different sizes and shapes of tables.  This was certainly the case with this reception.  A mixture of round and square guest tables were used as well as having two estate tables being used for the Head and Family table. 

 Dan & Anne Almasy  were the photographers.  They were great to work with and took very detailed photos, which is impressive.  I cannot wait to see the proofs.

 Sharon Alexander of Sweet Sensations, created the wedding cake to coordinate with the theme of the wedding.  It was a one of a kind, creation based upon the design that Francine had envisioned.  The 4-tier cake ­­­­­­­had orange and blue butterflies cascading down it.  Creating the wow affect, the cake was displayed on a silver pedestal and a cascading rose flower arrangement draped on the beautiful crisp white table-cloth.

 The guests were on their feet dancing throughout the night to the playlist created by Gordon.  He spent hours on end creating and composing many songs for the guest’s enjoyment. Jeff Burnisky of Absolute Entertainment made sure everything played right and to MC the reception.   When it was time to wish the couple best of luck and to see them off, guests lined up to wish them well. The couple made their way through the path of guests to the town car provided by Cooper-Atlanta Transportation.  Guests were also transported back to their hotel, Twelve Atlantic Station by Cooper-Atlanta Transportation.



 Congratulations and much happiness to Francine and Gordon! 


Here’s a few words from the client:
 
“I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for the superlative planning and execution you and your staff rendered last week at Francine’s wedding.  The event was absolutely magnificent and flawless in every detail.  Numerous guests specifically commented that it was the best wedding they had attended and Francine said is was the “best day of her life.” You can’t do much better than that! Your efforts were truly appreciated. ” (Mother of the Bride)
