Many times, my clients will have a deceased parent, grandparent, sibling or someone else important to them and they want to incorporate a way to honor their memory into their wedding.  There are many ways to do this and I’ll share a few ways that we have used to incorporate honoring the memory of those loved ones. 

Displaying photos is always a touching tribute.

Another way to incorporate photos, is to use them as a charm to attach to a bouquet or boutonniere.

A candle burning in memory is also a beautiful gesture.

For one of my clients whose mother had passed away, she wanted her to be close to where the couple would exchange vows, so we placed a sign and flowers beside the altar area.

One of the most special ways of honoring the memory of a bride’s mom, was a custom necklace the groom had made of the bride’s moms actual handwriting.

For this bride, placing her dad’s favorite flower in her bouquet was the special way of honoring him.

Attaching a hanky or a piece of cloth to the bride’s bouquet or dress is a touching way to have the loved one close to you.

Similarly, attaching a piece of jewelry to either a bouquet or the wedding dress is a way of keeping the loved one close to your heart.

Many couples choose to place a message in memory in their Ceremony Programs, which is a very sweet tribute.

Placing a flower on an empty chair at the wedding is another way to remember a loved one.

And one of the most powerful way’s to honor those who have passed was this Table Set for One.  This particular wedding was for a police officer who was previously in the military.  The table represented his friends who have lost their life serving their country or protecting citizens.

We had so much fun working with this couple to plan their beautiful wedding!!  

We selected Hyatt Regency Atlanta at Villa Christina for the venue.  The decor of the Hotel creates such a lovely backdrop.  

Rho and her bridal party selected their gowns from Alfred Angelo.  The bridal party wore a Jade hue, while the Maid of Honor wore Teal.  Rho’s shoes were AMAZING teal, Badgley Mischka peep-toe pumps.  

Davon and his guys looked handsome in their tuxedos from Savvi.

One of the Bride’s bridesmaids provided the hair styling for the day and the girls assisted each other with their make-up.  

The couple created a very unique Ceremony Program.  Guests were entertained by reading facts about the couple and their relationship as well as seeing how many States were represented by those attending.

Chelsea Floral Design Studio successfully created the bride’s vision with the personal flowers and reception decor.  The designs were classic and elegant with a slightly contemporary twist.  

Hilarye from Fotographa captured the amazing images of the day and you can enjoy them below. 

Also on hand was Joseph Leone, of Leone Productions creating the wedding video so that the couple can relive the day over and over.

The linens, provided by CoverUps, created the perfect look in the Ballroom to carry out the Teal and Black theme. 

One of the more contemporary touches was the wedding cake created by the Pastry Chef at the venue.  With a base of simple white, Teal and Black ribbons were placed artistically on the cake to give a geometric visual presentation. 

Marquee Events provided the music for the ceremony and the reception and as always were excellent.

The couple was surrounded by love from their closest friends and family and the joy could be felt by everyone.

The team of vendors were exceptional and we were honored to have partnered with each one to create another flawless wedding!

We wish Rho & Davon a lifetime of happiness!!!!!
