I am one of the lucky Event Planner’s, because I have fabulous clients!!!! Cecilia & Ben are certainly part of that group. We had a great time planning their wedding and the result was – well you can see for yourself. A good time was had by all! This couple exudes love and happiness which you can see by the expressions on their faces and the way they interact together.

Capturing the beauty of the day was none other than Kristen Alexander and the also amazing Jonathan Nye of Cre8ive Video.

Huge shout out to Kim Jordan of Woodruff Arts Center for referring this wonderful couple to me! Thank you so much! It was a pleasure working with Kim to make sure all of the venue details were expertly handled. Kim was even able to get special permission for photos of the whole wedding party to be taken in the High Museum since it was raining and photos couldn’t be taken outside. Woodruff Arts Center is a beautiful place for weddings and corporate events.

Christopher Macksey of Topher Mack, created the stunning floral. The phalaenopsis orchids were amazing. The whole design aspect was unique with a classic, modern and sleek style – perfect for this couple! They also provided light walls out on the terrace which gave a very interesting focal decor piece. Guests enjoyed taking selfies there throughout the evening.

Brad and the Livin Large band kept the crowd entertained and on the dance floor all night.

The beautiful cake was from Sweet Creations by Candi. The ombre sugar paste flowers were spectacular!

Adding to the fun of the evening, the couple provided masquerade masks for guests to wear while they danced the night away! This was a huge hit!! It was entertaining watching guests select their mask with such care, and then taking on somewhat of a different persona out on the dance floor.

It was an amazing day, despite the rain. Cecilia and Ben didn’t let the raindrops stop them from having a fabulous and flawless wedding.

We wish them a lifetime of happiness and adventures!!

I also have to give a HUGE shout-out to my team. They are always amazing and make sure that every clients event is fabulous and flawless – but they had to do extra duty on this one for me since due to my injury, I’m not able to put weight on my leg and have to get around in a wheelchair. So, my fantastic team, not only had a million tasks related to the wedding, they also had to assist me in getting around. I can never thank them enough for always giving a 100% to ensure my client is ecstatic with how the wedding/event turned out, but also being there for me!

Reshmi & Aleksander tie the Knot and the Thali!!

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 12:00 pm by JBEvents

It was a lovely luminous day on Sunday, May 4, 2014 and Reshmi and Aleksander were just minutes away from making their lifetime covenant to each other. The ceremony would take place at St. Alphonsa Catholic Church in Loganville, GA with more than 200 guests in attendance! This Syro -Malabar Catholic Church was established in 2006 and Reshmi & Aleksander’s wedding would be the first ever held there!

To start the day off right, we had to capture the gorgeous sunlight with some photos by Heidi from “Our Labor of Love”. The bridesmaids with bouquets in hand arrived first in their short, midnight blue dresses. Reshmi arrived shortly thereafter looking stunning in her all white gown bejeweled with beautiful crystal embellishments, and a yellow sunflower bouquet that was to die for!

After photos, Reshmi was tucked away in a private location so Aleksander and his groomsmen could take their pictures and not run into each other. The guys were handsomely dressed in dark grey suits with yellow ties and groomed to perfection. Once their photos were complete they began seating guests for the ceremony.

The ceremony was charmingly decorated with yellow and white ribbons tied along each row of pews, and a trail of yellows roses up and down the aisle. Not to mention the wonderful religious statues throughout the church. This eccentric Indian-Catholic wedding was full of harmonious songs, elaborate traditions, and inspirational readings.  During the ceremony, Aleksander was careful as he tied the Thali around Reshmi’s neck and covered her with a breathtaking Sari adorned with intricate beading and threads. Reshmi and Aleksander also took communion with each other and lighted unity candles with their parents to solidify their bond. Love was clearly in the air and each guest was attentive as Father Matthew led the ceremony with grace from beginning to end.

Upon conclusion, the bride and groom took more photos and then boarded their black stretch limo for their reception at Little Gardens. Overall, everyone was overjoyed with the wedding celebration and was impressed with our assistance and professionalism. Another flawless execution for Janice Blackmon Events, and an unprecedented success for their church, literally!
