A beautiful Spring day was the backdrop for the wedding of Molly & Danny.

The “girls” started the day getting beautified by the excellent team from Formal Faces. Jennifer, Julie & Courtney worked their magic on the girls and created some really stunning and interesting hair styles. The girls were all so happy with their services and they all looked even more beautiful than they already were.

Molly and her bridesmaids purchased their dresses at New Natalies. Molly chose a gorgeous gown that had intricate detail with a sweetheart neck and low back. The bridesmaids wore a figure-flattering royal blue chiffon gown in two different styles.

The florals, provided by The Flower Post, were all white with green accents. The bridesmaid bouquets were wrapped with a green satin ribbon. The bouquets looked so pretty against the blue dresses.

Capturing the images of the day was Catherine Park of My Life Photography. Once Molly was dressed, we went out onto the streets of Midtown for some fun and beautiful city portraits. The wedding party felt like celebrities as the passersby honked and yelled out compliments and Congratulations.

The wedding party transported to the church in a fun and stylish way…on a Trolley.  The Atlanta Trolley and the Georgia Tech Trolley were used to transport the wedding party as well as guests.

The ceremony was held at Shrine of the Immaculate Conception with Father Henry Gracz presiding. 

After the ceremony then it was time for the party to begin.  Park Tavern ~ Piedmont Room was the setting.  As guests arrived, they were treated to delicious hors d’oeuvres and beverages which included a signature cocktail, The Blushing Bride.  It was a huge hit.

Molly selected a Royal Blue moire linen for her guest tables from Chair Covers and LinensThe Flower Post provided arrangements in beautiful silver vases filled with white flowers.  The contrast of the white against the royal blue was gorgeous.

With Piedmont Park and the lovely views provided, Catherine had some fun with the wedding party prior to their joining the Reception.  The wedding party was such a fun group.

Guests had such fun using the Photo Booth.  There were  props that some guests chose to use in their photos, while others just relied on their own creativity. 

Once the Wedding Party was introduced and had their shining moment, Molly and Danny were introduced in and had their first dance as a married couple. 

The Wedding and Groom’s Cakes were provided by the ever amazing Mark Lotti of Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes.  The wedding cake was just gorgeous with a matching pattern in Molly’s dress.  Giving a nod to the Groom’s New York roots, the Groom’s cake was a NY Mets design with little baseballs trimming the bottom.  Guests were coming back for seconds of the delicious cakes.

Keeping the crowd entertained throughout the evening was the incomparable Scott Mikell of Spectrum-Entertainment.  It is always such a pleasure working with Scott because I know that everyone is going to have a wonderful and fun time.

Delicious personalized chocolates were provided as favors for the guests. 

Since the couple was moving to New York right after the wedding, it was appropriate that the Last Dance Song of the night was New York, New York.  Although the wedding ended on a high note, there was a tad of sadness from the bridesmaids since they would be having to say goodbye to their dear friend.  But – I see many trips to The Big Apple in store for all of them. 

The couple departed along with their guests on the Trolley at the end of the evening.  And from what I heard, the party continued at the St. Regis.

We were so pleased to work with this couple and to create a flawless wedding for them.  And now, we wish Molly and Danny a lifetime of Happiness.

Springtime Happiness for Erin and Taylor!

A beautiful spring day was the backdrop for the wedding of Erin and Taylor and the beautiful St. Regis hotel was the host hotel. 

Julie and Courtney of Formal Faces arrived at the St. Regis to work their magic on the bridal party.  The bride choose a beautiful style of a modified bun which looked wonderful with the veil she wore and then later a birdcage veil.

Her dress was a Martina Leona from one of my favorite Bridal Salons, La Raines Boutique.  She looked like a princess in the gown.  Her bridesmaids wore stunning styles in coral with an ivory sash from Bella Bridesmaid.  The Jr. bridesmaids wore similar styles but in an eggplant color. 

We must also say that the guys were very handsome in their tuxes from Savvi formalwear.

Adding an element of fun to the day was the transportation for the wedding party and guests.  Glenn from The Atlanta Trolley gave our group some wonderful moments not to mention photo ops with the old Trolley. 

The ceremony was held at Northside United Methodist Church in Buckhead with reception following at Capital City Club ~ Brookhaven.

Foxgloves and Ivy provided the gorgeous floral designs.  The bride just beamed when she first saw her bouquet.  The peonies were just perfect!!

The florals at the Club were breathtaking.  The Estate Table included tall white candelabra with draping crystals.  They certainly made a statement.  The guest tables had various other floral designs both tall and short centerpieces.

The tables were graced with luscious linens from Chair Covers and Linens.  As many times as I have worked at Capital City Club ~ Brookhaven, I don’t think I have ever seen the place look as beautiful.  Even staff members were overheard commenting on how amazing the room looked.  The guest tables were covered with a silver pintuck linen.  Coral napkins were used which provided a nice contrast.  On the large, covered Terrace, the cocktail tables and highboys were covered in coral linens which certainly was an appropriate color for spring.  The cake table had an amazing special linen that was a textured sheer placed over a coral underlay. 

Each place setting was individually labeled with hand calligraphied cards from Maren Nicholas.  Each place setting also had an adorable small, white sparkly terracotta type planter with a Peach Pie Pop blooming from it.  This was such a cute idea.  The Peach Pie Pop was in the shape of a flower – so it was like each guest had their own blooming treat.  

Fruitwood Chiavari Chairs were rented from Event Rentals Unlimited which added just the right touch to the look of the ballroom.

The bride and groom’s seats at the Estate Table had wooden signs hanging that said Mr.  and Mrs.  I loved this detail.

Frank and Wendy Gibson were the photographers for the event and they were busy taking  gorgeous images of the day.  Judging from the sneak peek of some photos that are on their blog – they certainly captured the beauty of the couple and their day.

The wedding cake which was an original creation from the genius Mark Lotti of Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes was not only fabulous but also delicious!!!  The cake was 5 tiers and had clusters of sugar-paste flowers placed asymmetrically on the front side of the cake.  It truly was a work of art.

The Flavor Band kept the crowd on the dance floor all night.  Their mix of music included something for everyone.

We also had a cigar area.  The lower Terrace proved to be the perfect place for the humidor to be displayed while Tommy Bahama ashtrays collected the ashes.  This was a popular place throughout the event.

When the time came for the party to end, the guests gathered to toss rose petals on the newly married couple as they escaped to a lovely limo provided by Atlantic Limousine that was waiting to whisk them away to begin their new life together.

We were so pleased to work with this family on the amazing wedding and we wish happiness to last forever for Erin and Taylor.
