Kathryn & Nick’s Australia meets The South wedding

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:01 am by JBEvents

This was one of those weddings where every detail just made me giddy!  The bride and her family were some of the sweetest people I’ve had the pleasure of working with and then when I met the groom and his family I realized what a perfect union this would be!

The theme was classic, elegant vintage and romantic and I think that was shown in every detail. It was also a combination of a groom from Australia and a bride from the South with a strong family presence from New Orleans. 

 The bride’s dress – can I just say WOW!  The dress was designed by Anna Campbell and was purchased at Kelly’s Closet

A very special touch for the ceremony was that the bride’s uncle (from New Orleans) performed the sacrament of marriage at Cathedral of Christ the King.

The reception was held at The Georgian Terrace Hotel.  This venue is known as Atlanta’s Modern Classic, and that was the perfect setting for this couples wedding.

Capturing all of the beautiful moments of the day was Anna Howard.  Sending a very special thanks to her for providing the images in this post!!

David of Chelsea Floral Design Studio provided the beautiful floral’s.  The Estate Table was just gorgeous!

Cashmere Band kept the crowd hopping on the dance floor.  The Father/Daughter and the Mother/Son dances were so perfect.  The brides father is a huge Jimmy Buffet fan, so they danced to “Little Miss Magic”, while the Groom and his mom gave a nod to their Australian roots and danced to “Down Under” by Men at Work.  

A very festive celebration for the couple’s departure included a Second Line Dance.  Guests were each given a monogrammed white napkin to wave in the air and the couple had lovely parasols.  After leading a parade around and through the ballroom, the guests then exited to line the stairs for the couple to walk through.  There was so much excitement in the air that the guests wanted the party to continue – and that is how we want every wedding to end, as I say leaving ’em wanting more!

We wish Kathryn and Nick a lifetime of happiness!!!!

Megan & Zach’s Midtown wedding!

It was such a pleasure to work along side Megan & Zach to plan their wedding.  Making it even more special was that it was my second time working with the groom’s family.  What an honor that is!

Their wedding was just beautiful and every detail was exquisite and perfect!  Bold American Events knocked it out of the park with the designs that truly exceeded the couples expectations.  The look was elegant and lush, with an English Garden feel.  The arch created for the ceremony later doubled as the backdrop for the cake.  

The couple exuded love with every look, touch and laugh throughout the day.  You couldn’t help but smile every time you saw them.  

One of the most touching moments was the bride opening the gift from the groom.  Her mother passed away when she was younger, and knowing how important she was to Megan, Zach took some old letters and cards with her handwriting and had a gorgeous necklace made with Megan’s initial in her mothers handwriting.  Needless to say, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.  That gift just goes to show what a special guy, Zach is. 

The photos (courtesy of Scobey Photography) tell the story better than words, so take a look!

Stephanie & Russell’s sweet wedding!!

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:44 am by JBEvents

This wedding was filled with so many beautiful personal touches, but I’m getting ahead of myself.

The day began at the home of the bride with all of her bridal party enjoying a brunch buffet complete with a Mimosa Bar while having their hair and make-up done by the talented folks at Brushworx.

Once Stephanie was in her dress which she purchased from Winnie Couture, we revealed her to her bridal party and then to her dad.  Everyone Oohed and Ahhed over how gorgeous she was.  Bridal party and family photos were taken in and around the home before we loaded her up in a limo provided by Atlantic Limousine to take her to meet her handsome groom for their First Look photos at Bulloch Hall.

Before the photo session began with the extremely talented photographer, Ashley of Blencoe & Co. Photographic Arts, the couple exchanged handwritten letters.  They were so excited to see each other and the photos that took place next are swoon worthy.

The ceremony took place at Alpharetta United Methodist Church with reception to follow at Roswell Founder’s Hall.  

Sarah Provow of Bloomin’ Bouquets provided the design of the gorgeous floral decor for the wedding.  We had fun working with Sarah and Stephanie {bride} in selecting the flowers for the wedding.  We spent a day at the wholesaler playing with all kinds of texture and color of flowers until we created the perfect combination that completed the bride’s vision.  The bouquets were beautiful and the reception decor was exquisite.  In addition to the lovely collection of flowers, mercury glass votive candles and other pieces graced the tables.  We wanted to incorporate some bling into the design, so the Sweetheart Table and the Cake table had gold sequined linens provided by CoverUps Linens.  The way they caught the light was spectacular.

The bride provided special signage that was displayed on the Escort Card table as well as the Favor display table.  One really awesome piece was a moss monogram “B” decorated with brooches.  It hung on the front door of the venue and created a warm and welcoming feel as guests arrived.  She also provided many family photos that we placed around the venue adding a very personal touch to everywhere that guests looked.  

The wedding cake created by my favorite pastry chef, Mark Lotti of Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes was fantastic.  Although the design on the cake was rather simple, the floral cascade coming from the top tier to the bottom was striking and elegant and was exactly what Stephanie desired.

Scott Mikell of Marquee Events was the DJ for the evening and as always he did a wonderful job.  He has such a way with the crowd and always provides a top-notch performance.

One special surprise for the couple was presented by their brother’s.  The groom’s brother wrote a song that he and the bride’s brother performed. It was such a treat.

Talk of the Town provided the scrumptious buffet that was a huge hit with the guests.

After the wedding, the bride would be relocating to Lancaster, Pennsylvania where Russell was already residing due to his job.  As an adorable and appropriate favor, bags of Lancaster candy was given that had a note thanking the guests for attending and providing their new address.

The couple departed as guests tossed lavender at them wishing them Best Wishes and Congratulations!

We loved working with this couple to plan and produce their wedding, it truly was a magical day.  We wish Stephanie & Russell a lifetime of happiness!!

Piedmont Park Wedding for Lauren & Dillon

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:32 am by JBEvents

LaurenDylan134

This sweet couple wanted a “Montana” outdoors feel for their wedding because they use to live there and that’s where their love story began.  

With the venue selected, the Piedmont Room at Park Tavern in Piedmont Park, the next step was to begin creating the vision.  I turned to my preferred event designer, JWilbur of EventScapes Atlanta to begin the design concept.  Since the ceremony would be taking place indoors, the idea was to bring the outdoors in.  A focal point for the ceremony was a gorgeous arbor which was flanked by two birch branch walls.  It was stunning.

In honor and memory of the bride’s mother, a wooden sign with the phrase “If Heaven weren’t so far away, we know your would be here today” was placed near the ceremony area.

Amati Chamber Ensemble provided the music for the ceremony.  This group of musicians are top-notch and always provide exceptional performance.

Capturing images of the day and providing the images in this post was 3 Rivers Photography.

The couple opted to have cupcakes instead of a traditional wedding cake.  As a cake topper, they had two wooden bears custom made which were again a nod to their time in Montana.

The guests were treated to a very energetic party with Yacht Rock Schooner band entertaining them.  The dance floor was filled all night.

A special treat of Krispy Kreme doughnuts were provided as guests departed the celebration which were a huge hit.

The couple departed to their waiting limo from Atlantic Limo, amidst colorful confetti as the evening came to a close.

We wish a lifetime of happiness to Lauren and Dillon!

Enjoy these images of their beautiful wedding.

Botanical Bliss for Katie & Brandon

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:48 am by JBEvents

One of our beautiful Spring weddings took place at the Atlanta Botanical Garden!  The adorable couple, Katie and Brandon, were such a sweet couple to work with and their wedding day was just spectacular!!

Fish in the Garden ~ Shari

Starting the day off in her family home, Katie, her Mom, Grandmother and sister had their hair and make-up done by the talented team at Authentic Beauty.  Once complete, we loaded them up in the shuttle provided by Atlantic Limousine and headed to the Renaissance Hotel to pick up the bridesmaids.  From there it was time to head to the Atlanta Botanical Garden!

Katie selected her beautiful wedding gown at Bridal’s by Lori and had alterations done by the amazing Rodica Lazarian!  The bridesmaids dresses were lapis colored from David’s Bridal.  They all looked lovely.

Unfortunately, the weather was not in our favor for the day, but even so, Shari Zellers, used her creativity to find beautiful areas to take the pre-ceremony photos while keeping everyone as dry as possible.  She did a fantastic job!  When the Groom and his groomsmen arrived, we kept them tucked away until the bride was safely hidden and then Shari had a great time photographing the guys.

The ceremony was performed by a close friend of the couple which made for a very intimate and truly custom ceremony.  The Groom, who is a journalist wrote the ceremony and then the couple wrote their own vows.

The stunning decor was provided by EventScapes.  The vision was to enhance the feel of the Botanical Garden without overpowering it which was done by keeping the design in a natural state with elements like birch, driftwood, and moss.  The arbor designed for the ceremony was one of the most beautiful ones I have ever seen.  It was created with twisted willow branches with floral touches and greenery.  Lush pomander balls with deep purple flowers decorated the aisle.  The reception decor was fabulous.  The Head Table had a long and lush design mixed with candles of varying heights.  The linens of moss-green and eggplant further enhanced the look of the room.  The draping behind the band made for an elegant presentation while providing a lovely focal point.

The Amati Chamber Ensemble provided the ceremony and Cocktail Hour music.  This group never disappoints.  They make the entire process from hiring/Contracting until playing the last note of their performance so easy for the client.  Sarah Paul is so accommodating in working with each client to make certain that the musical selections are just what they want for their special day.  These musicians are top-notch in every area and we love working with them.

Another one of our favorite vendors to work with, PPi, provided the sound system for the ceremony making sure that all guests were able to hear the couple saying their vows. 

A Divine Event provided the delicious southern-inspired meal which guests truly enjoyed.

Getting the reception started included the Bride’s Father welcoming all of the guests and then the Grandfather of the Groom offering the Blessing.  The couple had their first dance followed by the always special, Father/Daughter dance!

The beautiful and delicious wedding cake was provided by Mark Lotti of Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes.  The cake was cheesecake and guests were seen going back for seconds and thirds.

Some friends of the couple have a band, so as a special treat to the guests and in honor of the new Mr. & Mrs., they performed several songs!

The clients treated their guests to transportation from the three host hotels to the venue and back to the hotels since many of the guests were from out-of-town.  Atlantic Limo provided our transportation all weekend long and was such a huge help in making sure that everyone was where they needed to be in a timely and professional manner.

We were so happy to assist this wonderful family with the wedding plans and we wish Katie and Brandon a Lifetime of Happiness!!

Kendra & Patrick’s Wedding in the Park

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 10:30 am by JBEvents

A warm, sunny summer day was the backdrop for the wedding of Kendra & Patrick at Park Tavern in Piedmont Park.

The bride and her attendants started the day off with Hair and Make-up services provided by Trio Hair and Make-up Design.  

Once dressed, the Bride and her attendants were taken from the hotel to Park Tavern in a limo provided by Atlantic Limousine.  

Jessica Horwitz was the photographer for the wedding, and we certainly enjoyed working with her and her team.  The photos included here are images she graciously provided. The bride even had a “celebrity” visit during her photo session ~ Baton Bob happened to be passing (Marching) by and when he saw the bride in the Park he came over and posed for a few photos with her.  It was certainly an unexpected but fun treat. 

The staff at Park Tavern always do such a nice job.  We are always happy to work alongside them.

Chelsea Floral Designs provided the gorgeous florals.  The arbor they built for the ceremony was perfect for that venue.  The bouquets were beautiful and contained an interesting mixture of flowers and textures.  

Mark Lotti of Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes created the beautiful wedding cake which was inspired by the lace on the bride’s gown.

Everyone enjoyed taking photos in the photo booth provided by Shutterbooth!  Whether they wore the fun props or just posed pretty for the pictures, the photo booth was a popular activity for the group.  I’m sure the memory book that was created will provide many fun and happy remembrances of the celebration. 

DJ Andrew from Spectrum Entertainment kept the party rockin.  He did a wonderful job of reading the crowd and playing songs that kept the dance floor full.

We were pleased to have worked with these clients and to produce a beautiful wedding celebration that was nothing less than flawless!  

We wish a lifetime of Happiness to Kendra & Patrick!!

Love is Sweet for Erin & Tim

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:30 am by JBEvents

A beautiful, sunny day with mild temperatures set the stage for the wedding of Erin & Tim.

Jenn and her team from Pure provided the Hair and Make-up services for the bridal party for a great start to the day.  The bride and her sisters (who were her attendants) got ready in the family home, which provided such a comfortable setting for the special day.

Paige of Once Like a Spark photography was the photographer.  She began capturing photos of the dress and all accessories at various locations throughout the house, giving some wonderful backdrops for the items that will have meaning for years to come.  Photos of the bride’s family also took place at the home before heading over to the Church.

Also on hand capturing the video images of the day was Jonathan (and Michael) of Evolution Video.  Jonathan is always such a pleasure to work with and his video’s are lasting treasures from the Special Day.  One trait of a videographer that is of extreme importance to me is one that is unobtrusive while expertly capturing the beauty and emotion of the day.  Jonathan always exceeds not only my expectations, but those of my clients as well!!!

Atlantic Limousine provided a limo to transport the bride, her attendants and her parents to the Church, St. John Neumann Catholic Church.  Meanwhile, the Groom, his Groomsmen (his brothers) and his parents arrived at the Church and met up with Paige for their pre-ceremony photos. After the ceremony, the limo took the wedding party to the off-site location for photos before delivering them to the reception venue.

The couple had quite a large group of guests travel from out of town for their wedding.  As a courtesy, they provided a Trolley to shuttle the guests from their hotel to the Church and then back to the hotel where they were transported by the Hotel’s shuttle to the Reception venue, 550 Trackside.

At the end of the ceremony, as the Bride & Groom were ready to make their way back up the aisle, from the back of the church, a bagpiper, played the recessional and postlude which was such a wonderful surprise for the guests.

Once all of the extended family photos were complete, the wedding party headed over to the Historic Square in Lawrenceville for some special photos.

Since the weather was so nice, guests were able to enjoy Cocktail Hour on the Terrace where they were able to mingle, watch trains go by as well as nibble on some yummy Hors D’oeuvres.

The groom built a special “frame” that held the Escort Cards. Each card was attached to the frame by a miniature clothes pin.  It was such a sweet display and guests were very intrigued by the design.

A Bokay by JoAnn provided the florals and the catering.  Each table had a slightly different centerpiece.  Some tables had tall centerpieces while others had low groupings.  The buffet had 3 beautiful arrangements adorning the presentation.

HH Deserts provided the wedding cake.  The five tier cake had a variety of interesting design components.  Three of the tiers had a lace design mimicking the bride’s dress, while one tier had a Monogram.

IMG_3495 IMG_3493 IMG_3508 IMG_3509

The bride prepared a few items {DIY} that added a nice, personal touch to the event.  She purchased four large pillows and had them embossed with the wedding date and their married names.  We placed them on a couple of sofas located in the venue.

IMG_3476 IMG_3484

She also prepared a sign that we hung above the Candy Buffet that said “Love Is Sweet”.  She also created adorable Favor bags which were brown paper bags that she attached a hand-dyed doily and labels on to.  They were perfect for the rustic theme.

IMG_3527 IMG_3524 IMG_3525 IMG_3523 IMG_3499 IMG_3490 IMG_3489

A huge hit for the gentlemen was the Cigar Station.  The bride’s father purchased cigars which were placed on a table out on the terrace.

DJ Fernando of Lethal Rhythms provided the entertainment for the evening.  He kept the crowd energized all night long!!!

The evening ended with the couple departing through a Sparkler send-off to their waiting limo which took them to the after party before delivering them to their home where they celebrated their first night as a married couple.

We enjoyed working with these clients and wish Erin & Tim a lifetime of Happiness!!!
