Meghan and Matt’s Spectacular Day!

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 7:25 am by JBEvents

I am so thankful that I have been blessed with some of the greatest clients around.  In the list of great clients, Meghan and Matt are right at the top!

This adorable couple has a very busy life and they realized that they needed help with putting their wedding plans together and I was honored to be their Planner. Special thanks go to David Clarke of Chelsea Floral Designs for the referral!!

The bride’s style was classic, traditional and elegant.  Her color palette was Navy and Peach.  Her dress , from Winnie Couture, was a beautiful lace, fit and flare dress with cap sleeves, v-neck and sheer back.  Meghan looked stunning.  

The bridesmaids wore elegant navy dresses with a one-shoulder strap.  

The Groom and his groomsmen looked dapper in blue tuxedos with a slight difference of the groom’s being a deep navy while the guys were a brighter shade of blue. 

The ceremony was held at Redeemer Lutheran church while the reception was held at the Georgian Terrace Hotel.

Hair and Make-up for the ladies was provided by The Moore Agency.  They all looked so pretty.  

A very touching moment was when the Father of the Bride saw his daughter for the first time.  She presented him with a hand-embroidered handkerchief that I’m sure will be a keepsake forever!

Chelsea Floral Designs created the gorgeous floral arrangements.  The bouquets were swoon-worthy.  Megan’s bouquet had a special touch,  part of her mother’s wedding dress was wrapped around the stems. 

The amazing Laura Stone captured the day with her talented and artistic eye.  She has such an easy way with clients, that they feel at ease and comfortable, allowing her to capture the beauty and emotion of the day!  Her images will undoubtedly allow the couple, their family and friends to relive the the special day filled with love and joy for years to come. 

Guests enjoyed Cocktail Hour in Livingston’s Bar at the Georgian Terrace Hotel, with tasty hors d’oeuvres and refreshing beverages before entering the Grand Ballroom for the dinner and reception.

DJ Eric Anthony was on hand keeping the party going and the dance floor full!

Thank you Meghan and Matt for allowing me the honor and privilege of planning and producing your special day.  I wish you both a lifetime of happiness!!!!

Enjoy these images from Laura Stone!

I took a few photos during the day too……the ones of the cake were because of how the ceremonial cutting had a tiny issue.  If you look at the professional photos of the couple cutting the cake, you’ll see they are laughing and then look closely at the Groom holding the plate up and you will see the slice of cake was a bit of a mess.  I had to take a photo of the end result of the cutting.  I LOVE that they had a good time with the messy cutting – which just goes to show what a fun couple they were to work with!!!

0355H

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. 

0210H

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!!!!!

Fairy Tales Do Come True for Megan & Marcos!

Couple walking in the vineyard

You have heard me say it before and I know I will say it again, but I have the BEST clients in the world!!!!  This adorable couple hired me to plan and produce their beautiful wedding and it was such a blast.  Although the couple resides in Abu Dhabi, we successfully planned the wedding long-distance with only a couple of in-person meetings.  Megan trusted my recommendations which proved to relieve a lot of stress on her part since she couldn’t be here to meet with vendors in person.  

They selected one of my favorite venues, Chateau Elan.  The ceremony took place in the Atrium with reception to follow in the Debussy Ballroom.  It was the perfect setting!!

The Moore Agency performed their always-amazing hair styling and make-up application for all of the ladies.  Their team worked as the ladies enjoyed a delicious brunch complete with a Mimosa Bar making for a fun wedding morning. 

With a color palette of Tiffany, Black and Silver and plenty of glitz and glamour, the wedding vision came to life.  Chelsea Floral Designs expertly created the bride’s vision.  Megan had purchased many items along the way that she wanted to be incorporated into the wedding, so I presented them to David and Patrick of Chelsea Floral, who in turn took the items and used them in creative ways for one-of-a-kind stunning decor.  The hanging chandelier over the sweetheart table was breath-taking!

Catherine Rogers provided ceremony music on her harp. The sound was magical echoing throughout the Atrium of Chateau Elan.

Honeymoon Bakery created the wedding and Groom’s cake.  In perfect keeping with the Tiffany Blue theme, the pastry chef designed the wedding cake to look like Tiffany boxes.  The bride surprised the groom with an adorable groom’s cake paying homage to his participation in triathlons.

Marquee Events, DJ Matt, kept the crowd energized and on the dance floor throughout the evening.  Everyone had a fantastic time.

Joseph Leone of Leone Productions provided the videography service and did a great job of capturing the joy and excitement of the day.

Guests had a great time posing for photos in the photo booth provided by ShutterBooth.  

Special thanks to Katherine Birkbeck for sharing the gorgeous wedding photos included.  She was a true pleasure to work with and quite an artistic photographer!  I’m sure you will enjoy viewing the lovely images below!

We wish Megan & Marcos a continued lifetime of happiness!!!  Thank you for allowing Janice Blackmon Events to be a part of your special day!!

The girls Empty glasses = missing Bubbly Popping the Bubbly!  Cheers! Cheers to the Bride! Once the toasting was complete, it was time to get Jessie into her dress.  The dress she selected came from Sweet Elegance Bridal salon.  The designer was Allure.  The gown was ivory and the style was a fluffy ballgown which was very princess like.  Her cathedral-length veil had delicate lace detail and swarovski crystals.

Party on Dancing crowd Couple dancing One special activity incorporated into the reception that is steeped in tradition, especially in the South, is the Cake Pulls.  Dating back to the Victorian Era, the single ladies (in our case, the Bridesmaids) each pull a ribbon out that has been placed in the cake.  On the end of the ribbon is a charm.  Each charm has a special meaning, for instance, whoever pulls the charm of a ring is said to be the next to get married.  The bride and bridesmaids had so much fun partaking in this old tradition!

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!!
