Love Among the Fishes for Ashley & Daniel

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:29 am by JBEvents

What a beautiful venue and setting for the wedding of the adorable couple, Ashley & Daniel!! 

The day began with the ladies having hair and make-up services while enjoying a tasty brunch at the W Hotel ~ Downtown.  Once the ladies were all beautified, they loaded up and headed over to the Georgia Aquarium where they got dressed.  The bride wore a gorgeous gown by Augusta Jones, while the bridesmaids wore floor-length black gowns that were very elegant.   

The photographer, Robin Nathan, had fun taking photos of both sides of the wedding party using the many different backgrounds found at the Aquarium. 

Separate sessions for signing of the Ketubah were held since the couple didn’t want to see each other until the ceremony. 

Your Event Solution provided the décor for the wedding.  The personal flowers were gorgeous and since the bride didn’t want to use floral décor in the reception – the use of the flowers in the ceremony really made them stand out.  The focal point of the ceremony was a stunning Chuppah of branches and twinkle lights.  It looked magical!!!

Allegro Strings provided the music for the ceremony and the Cocktail Hour.  As always, they were wonderful.

The reception décor consisted of various crystal décor pieces ~ crystal trees, branches extending out of crystal filled vases and crystal chandeliers.  The bride wanted unique centerpieces without florals, and these crystal pieces provided  just the perfect look.

The ambient lighting was provided through Active Productions.  They did a wonderful job in matching the color scheme desired by the bride and the look in the room was beautiful.

The meal consisted of several courses including a pre-selected choice of entrée of filet  or salmon.  In true Wolfgang Puck style, the food is prepared fresh and plated up to be served immediately.  The servers actually stand in a line ready to whisk the plates away as the Chefs precisely place each food selection on the plate.  The final course was a warm chocolate cake which was the dessert course and that was before the Wedding Cake was served.  This was definitely a “sweet” wedding!  Later in the evening, guests were offered their choice of several varieties of cake flavors from the Wedding Cake provided by Mark Brickman of The Baker’s Man.  The couple had bobble-heads made in their likeness which adorned the Cake Table and were a huge hit. 

The Atlanta Showstoppers, led by Glenn Carvin, kept the crowd on their feet all night long!!  Their energy was infectious and the guests had such a great time dancing to their music.

As guests were leaving, they were treated to a Candy Bar buffet that we provided.  Favorite candy varieties of the couple and their parents were offered.  There were Malted Milk Balls, Sour Patch Kids, Jordan Almonds, Skittles, M&M’s, Hershey Kisses, and Gummie Bears.  As one of our additional services, we provide the vessels, scoops and custom candy labels.  Clients can select the varieties of candy desired, and we will order the appropriate quantities.  Guests always love having a Candy buffet and they will leave your wedding with sweet reminders and memories!!!

The couple departed to a waiting limo provided by Atlantic Limousine and still had huge smiles on their face because of the amazing celebration of their new life together!!!!

We were so happy to work with this family in planning this fabulous wedding and were pleased to produce another flawless event!!

We wish a lifetime of Happiness to Ashley and Daniel!!!

Love was in the air for Emily & Elliot

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:16 pm by JBEvents

This past weekend was beautiful and created the perfect backdrop for the wedding of Emily and Elliot!!

What an adorable couple they are!  They both have infectious smiles and you can see and feel the love they have for each other!! 

Emily selected two GORGEOUS dresses for her wedding day.  One that was classic, elegant, timeless and dreamy and the other was fun and beautiful.  She also had two amazing pairs of shoes…. for the ceremony she wore a flat, gold sparkly Steve Madden pair and for the reception {the PARTY shoe} she wore fuchsia glittery heels from Kate Spade!  I was in love with them both!

Many times there are a variety of vendors involved with providing services for an event and when those vendors understand the concept of Team Work, it is totally amazing what can be accomplished.  Such was the case with this wedding! 

The venue, the Atlanta History Center, one of Atlanta’s most sought after venues for weddings and other special events, created the canvas for the event.  The dedication and flexibility of the Sales team were very much appreciated and the on-site staff were top-notch!

The creative genius (or head artist keeping with the painting theme) behind the event, JWilbur of  EventScapes Atlanta (a division of CCP Events) pulled together not only a stunning design theme, but also the perfect team of vendors to work together to achieve it.  It takes a special talent to listen to a client and then design the decor to carry out their vision.  Wilbur has an uncanny way of being able to do just that.  He is able to take the desires of the client and couple them with his ideas to present them in a way that not only makes sense but combines elements that you might not commonly think of as working together.

After determining the direction of the design and use of space, Wilbur brought together the perfect vendors to fulfill the vision.  From the always professional team of Peachtree Tents and Events who provided the tent and the hard goods to the talented and dedicated team from PPi who provided sound and lighting, to The Plant Peddler who brought in beautiful topiary trees for use in the ceremony and in the reception tent – the camaraderie and team spirit of each person working towards the common goal of creating the fabulous event was evident! 

Kristen Alexander, another creative genius, was the photographer of the wedding.  She has one of those “eyes” that sees things others do not – so her photos are always gorgeous and emote feeling!  I certainly appreciate Kristen sharing a sneak peek of the images from the wedding – which you can see below.  {I decided to forego posting my snapshots right now since I had these fabulous images to share instead}!

The Event Performance String Ensemble provided the ceremony music and they were wonderful. 

The crowd had a wonderful time feasting on the delicacies from Kaleidoscope Bistro and Pub who served as the caterer for the wedding.  The restaurant is one of the couples favorite places to eat – so they thought it would be great to share the food they so enjoy there with the guests attending their wedding.

EastCoast Entertainment provided the band for the evening, Big Swing and the Ballroom Blasters.  They kept the crowd entertained and on the dance floor throughout the evening.

We were honored and thrilled to be a part of this truly amazing wedding. 

We wish Emily & Elliot a lifetime of Happiness!!!

And now for the sneak peek courtesy of Kristen Alexander, photographer extraordinaire!!!

Kristin + Bobby = True Love Forever

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:32 am by JBEvents

What a beautiful day for an amazing couple in a fabulous venue for a wedding!  Hopefully you will forgive me for all of the adjectives once you read and see what I’m talking about!

Kristin and Bobby selected Greensboro 1st United Methodist Church to exchange vows and the Lake Club at Reynolds Plantation for the reception. 

The church was beautiful and very spacious.  There is a very large Narthex area which has the feel of a mountain lodge – complete with a huge stone fireplace.  The staff (church hostess and sound technician) were so accommodating and helpful.  The brides room was  large and had an area perfect for hair/make-up services ~ which is so rare!

The girls arrived at the church to receive their hair and make-up services provided by Julie and Heidi of Formal Faces.  Everyone looked gorgeous. 

The bridesmaids dresses were STUNNING!  They were purchased at Wedding Angels and were tangerine with a floral rosette detail around the hemlines. 

Kristin’s dress was incredible.  The beading detail was just beautiful.  The sash that she added was the perfect touch!  She looked gorgeous!!!!

Capturing the images of the day was Adam Linke and Mickie of The Decisive Moment.  We loved working with them!!!  What a treat you are in for…as the images included in this post are from Adam!! {thank you so much for providing the gorgeous images}!!

It was also fun working with Jonathan Nye of Evolution Video again.  He is a great and extremely talented guy.  I’m happy to say he is one of my preferred vendors!!  I know that Kristin and Bobby will be thrilled with the video Jonathan is creating for them.

The Groom’s grandfather presided over the ceremony – making for a truly touching vow exchange.

The Lake Club at Reynolds Plantation is a Private Member’s-Only Club.  The venue sits right on Lake Oconee.  The main level of the venue overlooks the pools which are amazing.  One pool – which is more family friendly has these amazing tubular slides and the other pool is an infinity pool directly overlooking Lake Oconee ~ very serene.  I kept thinking how fun it would be to have a full Wedding Party Trash the attire session by coming down the tube slides…but I digress.

The entry foyer of the Club is in the shape of an octagon – which provides visual interest.  A round residential table in the center of the room held photos of the couple and a lovely towering centerpiece.   Early in the wedding planning process, Kristin purchased favor containers in the shape of shopping bags which were monogrammed with their names and wedding date.  When trying to determine how to provide guests their table assignments, I suggested she use the boxes and place the guests names and table assignments on them, so they become a personalized favor.  The boxes then served two purposes  – Escort Card and Favor.  They were filled with spiced pecans.  The boxes were topped with adorable ribbons in the citrus color theme of the wedding! This was a great way of making double use of an item!

Guests had a BLAST taking turns in the Photo booth provided by Majestic Photo Booth.  The guests were able to have photos to take away with them while another copy of the photos were placed in a scrapbook for the couple.  Guests wrote messages in the scrapbook which I’m sure will be entertaining to look back over in the years ahead.

The couple also had a booked filled with their engagement photos that guests wrote sweet messages in.  The photo books are such a wonderful way to share the engagement photos the couples have taken while also serving as a very special keepsake with the messages from those attending the celebration. 

One other method of guests providing well wishes, encouragement, and words of guidance were note cards which were in envelopes that had been decorated to include a specific Anniversary year when the couple should open the note.  What a wonderful way of providing a remembrance of those who celebrated your wedding day by reading their messages years later.  I have to wonder if Kristin and Bobby will actually wait the length of time indicated on each envelope or if they will “cheat” and open them all at once. I think if it were me – cheating would be involved!  🙂

Rhythm Nation from East Coast Entertainment, provided the high-energy entertainment for the evening.  Guests were having a great time dancing to the tunes!  It is always a pleasure to work with this group.  They are very talented as well as being easy to work with.

Le Petit Jardin  provided florals for the wedding.  Kristin wanted a somewhat rustic chic look to the decor.  Debbie used a variety of flowers in the decor, but Sunflowers were prevalent. Lanterns and hurricane vases were utilized throughout the decor. Glass spheres were attached to the chandeliers which hung down over the dance floor area.  They sparkled as the lights danced off them providing a magical look.

The wedding and groom’s cakes were provided by Cake Design by Debra.  The groom works for a brick company and so his Groom’s cake gave homage to his favorite sports teams as well as his occupation. The wedding cake mimicked  the bride’s dress with lace details covering the the top and sides with an accent bow.

A late night snack of Banana Pudding was offered to the guests in keeping with a southern touch. Judging from how quickly they disappeared, I would say they were delicious!

When it was time for the party to end, guests donned flower leis and had finger streamers to fling as the couple made their way to the waiting Horse and Carriage.  This was a fitting fanfare since the couple spent their honeymoon in Hawaii!

It was such a pleasure working with this couple and we wish them a lifetime of Happiness!!!
