It was a beautiful summer day in the city appropriately named HOTlanta for the wedding of Jessica & Avi.  

The couple met when Jessica took a job in Israel.  They met shortly after she arrived and from there, the relationship developed and blossomed.  When they decided to get married,  the obvious location was Jessica’s hometown of Atlanta.  Avi and his family live in Israel so this would mean a destination wedding for his family. Even though the couple are both Jewish, there were still differences in the traditions observed, so blending them was the first step in the blending of the two families. 

Wanting to offer true hospitality and a wonderful experience not only to the groom’s family but to all guests in attendance, the venue, the Westin Buckead was selected.  The Hotel being centrally located in the heart of Buckhead provided many activities for out-of-town guests to enjoy.  

Jim White Designs provided a soft, romantic and elegant setting for the Ceremony using various shades of white and soft pink with subtle touches of green.  The Chuppah doubled as a canopy during the reception giving a beautiful focal point for the cake presentation. I think you will agree it was gorgeous.

The romantic and elegant theme continued for the reception.  There were touches of contemporary accents with the floral design along with a lot of flickering candles.  A mix of tables including two long Estate tables framing the dance floor, as well as round guest tables provided visual interest in the room.  A Sweetheart Table placed at the edge of the dance floor with a lush centerpiece, completed the design.

The menu for the evening included Mediterranean, Pasta, Salmon and Flatbread Stations. Guests were able to mingle as they visited the different stations filling their plates and bellies before they hit the dance floor.

Our favorite Pastry Chef, Mark Lotti, created the gorgeous wedding cake.  The square cake featured the couples monogram on the center tier and consisted of Vanilla Bean and Oreo cheesecake.  Guests were seen going back for seconds {even thirds}.

One of Atlanta’s premier party bands, US Beat, kept the crowd entertained and energized throughout the evening.  We always love working with them!

Laura Stone captured the excellent images from the day which I’m sure you will enjoy {see below}!  Special thanks to her for sharing them with us. 

It’s always a pleasure working with a seasoned, professional team to ensure that the clients event exceeds their expectations and this wedding was one of those fabulous events! 

We wish Jessica & Avi a lifetime of Happiness!!!  Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!

Rain Drops and Roses for Rachel & Rusty!

The site for the wedding of Rachel & Rusty was Lake Lanier Islands Resort, Pineisle Pointe.  The setting is beautiful, with vast views of the lakes and other nearby islands.  Although the weather prohibited us from having the ceremony outside as planned, the location was changed to Pineisle Center where Rich Larsen of Creative Events by Sunflowers, created an intimate setting with a lovely Chuppah as the focal point.  The style of the decor was Rustic Elegance and Rich created beautiful decor that fit the theme perfectly.  The colorful florals mixed with natural elements like birch wood vases and cut tree disks gave the rustic look, but in such an elegant style.  

In addition to being Rustic Elegance, another theme was music.  The couple selected some of their favorite songs and instead of numbering the tables, they named them with the titles from their list of favs.  On each table, there was an informational document that gave the name of the song, the artist and the lyrics.  At each place setting, a slip of paper containing lyrics from a portion of the song was placed.  Throughout the reception, many of these songs were played by the band. 

Since the Groom and his family are from New Orleans, it was fitting that the Groom’s cakes were traditional da Bouche.  They were actually flown here from New Orleans so that the family was assured they were the “real thing”.  

This wedding was definitely a hit if you have a sweet-tooth, because not only was their wedding cake and da Bouche cake, there was also a Gelato Cart that offered a variety of yummy flavors for guests to enjoy!!

As a favor, guests were treated to heart-shaped cookies and cartons of milk as they left the reception – which was a huge hit. 

Other vendors we were pleased to partner with were Glen of Pixel This! photography, Bulletproof Band, Rabbi Lebow, Dreamy Gelato and The Baking Grounds.  

We wish Rachel & Rusty a lifetime of Happiness!!!!
