It was such a pleasure working with this couple to plan their wedding.  Everything turned out so beautifully thanks to my vendor partners.

Villa Christina/Hyatt at Perimeter Summit was the venue.  An outside wedding ceremony took place under the pavilion.  Even with a less than desirable weather forecast for the day resulting in strong winds that almost took out some of the decor, we were able to reset and during a few moments of calm, have the ceremony as planned.

Monique from Blossoms Atlanta provided the decor and it was stunning!  The bright color palette was refreshing and went perfectly with the garden atmosphere.

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed themselves during cocktail hour on the Terrace before being invited to the Ballroom where they entered a gorgeous set-up.  Luscious linens from I Do Linens graced the tables while again the floral decor created a visual appeal with the bright colors.  The couple wanted guests to enjoy the party and not feel like they had to remain at their tables throughout the reception, so we set up a lounge area that was decorated with personal pillows indicating their college team, professional sports teams and their own personalized pillows that will be used in their home. Collection Event Rentals provided the linen colored sofas and chairs along with a wood coffee table that we adorned with photos of the couple.  

Speaking of college, Mark Lotti of Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes created an amazing replica of the Ohio State stadium which was provided as the Groom’s cake.  It was a HUGE HIT!  He also designed the wedding cake that took the Bride’s breath away!

I always advise my clients to brand (personalize) their event as that is what truly makes it unique.  Corey & Jeff did just that.  The tables were named after some of their favorite restaurants and on the table sign, the story of that particular restaurant was provided.  Guests enjoyed visiting the other tables to read a little more about the couple. This truly provided a unique touch! 

EastCoast Entertainment provided the DJ services of Josh Bagley.  He did a wonderful job of keeping guests entertained and on the dance floor.

Who doesn’t love a PhotoBooth – well the guests at this wedding sure did!  ShutterBooth Atlanta provided their open booth and we selected the silver glitz backdrop to go along with the wedding decor.  Everyone had such a great time posing for the photos.

A delicious late night snack was offered to guests so that they could replenish their energy after all of the partying. Burgers fries and onion rings were a hit!

As a send off for the couple, guests lined up waving ribbon wands to wish the couple farewell. It was a beautiful wedding and guests were overheard commenting that it was the best party they have ever been to!

It was such a pleasure working with this couple!!  We wish Corey & Jeff a lifetime of Happiness!!!

Katie & Brannon

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:40 am by JBEvents

I know I say this a lot, but this wedding was absolutely amazing!!!!!

I had the pleasure of working with Katie & Brannon from the very beginning of their wedding planning.  I was able to refer them to excellent vendors that would be able to provide and produce the vision for their wedding.

Capturing the images of the day was Angela of Angela Wilson Photography.  She and her team were very detailed in the schedule of photos to be taken throughout the day.  I’m sure you will agree, the images she took which are included below are ahh-may-zing!!

The always wonderful stylists from The Moore Agency provided the make-up for the girls.  A friend of the bride, Christel, provided the hair styles for the wedding party.

The venue was the beautiful historic hotel, The Georgian Terrace

The ceremony was held in the Piedmont Ballroom.  A custom aisle runner that was midnight blue with platinum was produced to match Katie’s color scheme.  JWilbur of EventScapes, created the most gorgeous arbor where the ceremony took place.  White sheer fabrics as well as the midnight blue/platinum fabric covered the frame of the arbor softening the look while clusters of flowers were attached to the corners and in the center.  Two large and lush arrangements on pedestals flanked the ceremony area. 

One of my favorite string ensembles provided the ceremony and Cocktail Hour music, Amati Chamber Ensemble.  This group, led by Sarah Paul, is comprised of extremely talented musicians who play a variety of music genres.  They are top-notch professionals on many levels. 

The officiant, Sheila Preacher, is the Godmother of the Bride and certainly provided a very personal and touching ceremony.  The couple wrote their own vows and I have to say – they were so touching.

With a rather large guest list, we knew from the beginning that the set-up of the Ballroom would require some creativity.  Instead of planning on having a seat for every guest, we decided to have a “space” for every guest.  Various sized tables were placed inside the ballroom including tables to accommodate up to 12 guests as well as high-boy tables allowing for guests to prop while eating. JWilbur created several varieties of centerpieces ~ each of which were beautiful.  There were lush full centerpieces on some tables while others were adorned with short, square vases containing blue hydrangea.   Crystal “bling” was a common element included in the arrangements. The room was treated to uplights, provided by PPi, which gave a warm glow and added to the ambiance. 

Classic Tents provided a tent on the terrace which provided additional seating for guests.  It had clear walls on the street side allowing the view of the night sky to still be seen.

Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes provided the wedding cake.  Not only was it beautiful, but it was delicious.  The design of the cake was fashioned after the lace on Katie’s dress and had a monogram on the center layer.  The parents of the bride made a trip to Ireland a few months before the wedding and while there purchased a Crystal bride and groom cake topper directly from Waterford Crystal.

Atlanta Showstoppers provided the entertainment for the evening.  What a fabulous show they put on.  The guests were on the dance floor all night having a blast. 

Guests were treated to M&M’s in small jars as their favor.

The couple departed through a Sparkler fanfare to their awaiting Horse and Carriage from Nottingham Shire Carriage for Hire.  As they pulled away their guests cheered and passersby honked all wishing the Happy Couple congratulations.

We were so pleased to have worked with the couple and the bride’s parents!  We wish them a lifetime of Happiness!!!

Special thanks to Angela Wilson for providing these images!!!

Mitzvah & Weddings recap

Posted in Other Events, Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 5:22 pm by JBEvents

What a Busy few weeks we have had!!!  In the past 3 weeks we have produced 5 amazing events!!  I can’t wait to catch you all up on the details of each but just to give you a sneak peek – here are just a few of the highlights!!

 

Mazel Tov ~ Harris & Sara

A ROCK themed B’nai Mitzvah held at The Tabernacle!!!  What an amazing event this was! Incredible venue, excellent vendors and a family that was so wonderful to work with!! Wilbur of EventScapes created some of the most unique and fabulous decor pieces for this event that I’ve ever seen.  Special features of this Mitzvah included a Karaoke Band surprise performance AND custom created Milk Shake station provided by FLIP Gourmet Burger Boutique.

 

 

Amira & Ibe ~ Wedded Bliss

This was truly a gorgeous wedding for a gorgeous couple!  Held at the Ritz-Carlton ~ Downtown with some of the top vendors in the area providing their services!  The décor was jaw-droppingly beautiful ~ thanks to Wilbur of EventScapes!  The always amazing Scott Mikell of Spectrum-Entertainment provided the reception entertainment and kept the crowd on the dance floor with a mix of American tunes as well as Arabic tunes for the couple’s homage.  The cakes from Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes…WOW…truly artistic creations with exquisite detail not to mention fabulous taste!

 

Ashley & Daniel ~ Married with the Fishes

You can’t help but love a wedding at the Georgia Aquarium!  Ashley & Daniel had a beautiful wedding with the help of Your Event Solutions, who created a one-of-a-kind Chuppah where the vows took place.  Allegro Strings provided the ceremony and Cocktail Hour music while the Atlanta ShowStoppers Band provided the high-energy entertainment keeping the dance floor filled all night long! We provided a Candy Buffet that was a HUGE hit!

 

Sara & Evan ~ Midtown Atlanta Wedding in Piedmont Park

Peachtree Christian Church was the setting for the vows while The Garden Tent at Park Tavern in Piedmont Park was the reception venue.  The bride had a dream of being a Cinderella bride and she did not disappoint.  We had the pleasure of working with some of our favorite vendors on this wedding as well such as Foxgloves & Ivy, Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes, Chair Covers & Linens and Shimmer the Band. 

 

Intimate Family Gathering ~ Garden Tent

Sometimes, it does happen that things don’t go as planned.  Unfortunately for one of our clients, we had a cancellation of the wedding 48 hours before the big day.  I have to tell you that this was an emotional situation for everyone involved and while this is never the desired outcome, the reason I mention it is because as the Event Consultant, we handle “un-doing” of the plans for the affected families.  Since a cancellation is not planned or anticipated, the clients usually don’t know where to turn and what to do – especially since they are also dealing with all of the emotions involved.  Having the Consultant handle the details of the cancellation and providing the information to all vendors as well as following back up with the clients on any financial issues – at least helps get them through the difficult time.  Although the wedding didn’t take place, we did turn this into a small intimate family dinner and the clients were very pleased with the services provided. 

 

As soon as time allows — a more detailed post for each of these amazing events will be posted.  Until then – I hope you enjoy these snapshots!!

Check back soon!!!
