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!!!!

Wedded Bliss for Carla and Michael

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 10:46 am by JBEvents

Carla and Michael selected one of my favorite venues for their wedding ~ The Georgian Terrace Hotel.  The day started with the ladies receiving hair from The Moore Agency and make-up services from Michelle with Miche Consulting.  The ladies all looked beautiful.

During the planning of the wedding, Carla found two wedding dresses that she fell in love with.  We had several discussions regarding whether she should only use one or both dresses, and after seeing them, I said that she must use them both.  We decided that one of the dresses would be the Ceremony and formal part of the reception dress and then the second dress would be the party dress.  Both of the dresses were stunning and I’m so glad she was able to wear both dresses that she had fallen in love with.

Shari Zellers was our wonderful photographer for the day.  Shari, like myself, loves the photogenic aspects of the Georgian Terrace, so she was able to take some amazing shots before we headed over to the church for the ceremony – which took place at North Avenue Presbyterian Church.

The bridesmaids wore lovely Alfred Angelo purple long gowns.  While the gentlemen were outfitted in classic and elegant black tuxes from MW Tux.

When it was time to head to the church, the wedding party were taken there in style by Atlantic Limousine in a black-stretch limo.

Videography services were provided by my staff videographer who captured the beauty and fun of the day.

The gorgeous florals were provided by Chelsea Floral.  They accurately captured her vision and superseded her expectations.  The ballroom was stunning with purple linens and centerpieces with white, purple and green florals.  The tall centerpieces had crystals dripping down which provided a beautiful sparkle.  I was able to sneak the couple into the ballroom before guests were invited in and Carla was awestruck with the beauty.

In addition to the photo guest book, the couple wanted their guests to also leave them Well Wish notes, so we provided the set-up for this with custom notecards that once completed were placed into a white birdcage.

During cocktail hour, guests obtained their Escort Card to determine their table assignment.  The beautiful calligraphy was provided by Maren, my staff calligrapher.  Her work is amazing!!

Keeping the crowd entertained was DJ Ted Crowder.  It is always nice working with him and the guests certainly enjoyed the entertainment he provided.

Adding to the fun of the evening was the Photo Booth provided by Shari.  Guests enjoyed posing for some entertaining photos that will be enjoyed forever!

 A late night snack of mini cheeseburgers, corndogs and french fries were provided to give the guests more energy after working off their dinner from dancing.

Guests came from near and far to attend this wedding, and the couple wanted them to experience one of Atlanta’s most popular treats from none other than The Varsity.  Apple and Peach friend pies were provided along with the ever popular Varsity hats.  They were a huge hit!

When the time came for the couple to bid their farewell and begin their life of wedded bliss, they exited through bubbles to their awaiting horse and carriage that then took them on a romantic ride through the streets of Atlanta.

It was such a pleasure working with Carla and Michael and we wish them a lifetime of happiness!!!
