Stephanie & Russell’s sweet wedding!!

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!!

Holiday Nuptials for Katelyn & Ross

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:00 am by JBEvents

Getting married around the Holiday’s is such a special time especially when you have family traveling in from all over to join in the joyous occasion.  Such was the case for Katelyn and Ross.  Their ceremony was held at Holy Spirit Catholic Church with reception to follow at the InterContinental Hotel.  We were fortunate to have a great vendor-team to pull this beautiful wedding off.  There were so many special touches including the Bride’s grandmothers prayer-book being incorporated into her bouquet, a solo by the brides brother before she walked down the aisle, custom linens, a surprise Pie Bar in lieu of a Groom’s Cake as well as a special treat for all guests in the form of a late-night shot of “Elk’s Milk” which is a family tradition from the Groom’s side and dates back for generations.  The drink is a concoction of Orange Sherbet and Vodka.  I must admit, it was quite tasty.  Everything created such a wonderful celebration for two very special people and their amazing parents!

Everything about this wedding was beautiful so I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.  Special thanks go out to Shannon Belletti for providing the majority of the images below in addition to some taken by JBEvents Staff.
