Once Upon a Time…The Fairytale of Jenny & Ben

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:00 am by JBEvents

It was such a magical wedding weekend for Jenny & Ben!  Short back story – they are avid Disney fans and became engaged at Disney World in front of the castle.  Ben works as a writer in the film industry in L.A. and they are both very much into “geeky” things.  The hashtag for the wedding was a nod to one of their favorite trilogy’s, “The Lord of the Rings” as well as a play on the groom’s last name – #FellowshipoftheStrings!

On the morning of the wedding, the ladies had a Disney themed Bridal Brunch.  Musicians welcomed the guests with strains of Disney songs.  Guests were given Mouse Ears as they entered with a special pair of a sparkly Bride ears for the Guest of Honor.  The decor around the room and on the tables was adorable Disney themed items including letters for the Bride’s new last name. 

While the ladies were brunching, the guys were lunching.  The guys had their gathering at Paddy’s Pub right onsite.  Good food and laughter (and a beverage or two) was abundant as all the special men in Ben’s life surrounded him on his wedding day.

When the ladies finished their brunch, they retreated to a private room to begin their hair and make-up appointments, provided by Brushworx On Location Hair and Make-up.  These ladies had so much fun and were so relaxed, which is exactly our goal. Of course, they all looked beautiful!  

There was one very special addition to the wedding gown.  Sewn into the dress, right where it would rest upon her heart, was a small, heart-shaped portion from the Bride’s favorite baby blankie.  I love details like this!!

Brenda of Brenda Upton Photography was onsite capturing all of the memories of the day.  Brenda had a vision in mind and wanted to make sure not to miss the opportunity of some amazing sunset photos.  She took the couple out through the vineyard, across a field and up a hill to an old tree that provided a view of the sun setting with mountains in the background.  During the trek with the couple her mantra was “follow the light”.  The result was a series of photos that are some of my favorites ever!!! {See photos in collage at bottom}.  Special thanks to Brenda for providing the beautiful images for this post.

The couple shared a First Look in the ceremony area and watching the look on their faces as they saw each other for the first time was magical.

Edge Design Group created the stunning decor.  The Chuppah was dreamy, with soft flowing fabrics and magnificent floral arrangements.  They had a Wine Box unity ceremony.  Personal letters from the bride and groom were placed inside a wooden box with a bottle of their favorite wine.  During the ceremony, they sealed the box and they won’t open it until their 1st Anniversary.

For Guest Registration, there were two antique typewriters available so guests could type a message to the couple.  There was also a custom wood puzzle made which guests would select a piece to sign a note and then place the piece on the display to put the puzzle together.

In keeping with the winery location, the mother hand-made a set of wine charms for each guest.  The charms had beads in the color of the wedding as well as a crab and a peach giving nod to the hometown states the couple’s families are from, Maryland and Georgia.

The ballroom was gorgeous!  Edge Design Group created a romantic and elegant setting.  The tables were draped with lovely champagne satin linens while the sweetheart table had an exquisite beaded overlay on top of the champagne.  The couple’s table was then adorned with a lush floral piece and a variety of candles providing a glowing sparkle. Throughout the rest of the room, there were combination of tall arrangements as well as low arrangements with varying heights of candles creating a romantic glow in the room. Softening the look of the wall behind the band were soft, flowing blush drapery creating a beautiful backdrop.

The cake table had a navy sequin linen that added to the presentation of the dramatic cake – created by a family friend for the couple.

Guests were entertained all evening by the sounds of U.S. Beat with their always amazing performance.

This wedding  was fun from beginning to end and when it was time for the party to end, guests were begging for more.

The couple departed through a ribbon fanfare to begin their new life together.

We wish Jenny & Ben a lifetime of Happiness of their own fairy tale.

Meggie & Matt Get Married!

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:05 am by JBEvents

A lovely day in a picturesque location was the perfect setting for Meggie & Matt to exchange vows in front of their family and friends.

The vision for the ceremony was to feel like you were in the woods.   Varying sizes of tree trunks were brought in to create an altar which was then accented with Lanterns and flowers.  Gracing the aisle were wood slices adorned with vases of white flowers with just a touch of soft pink flowers. With the surrounding trees and grassy knolls, the setting was magical.

A close friend of the couple designed and created other original items for the wedding.  One of the featured designs was a large, free-standing wooden sign crafted with an aluminum center held the table assignments for the reception.  The name of the couple was burned into the bottom for a lasting memory of their special day.  

There were also wooden signs created for the Bar and the Menu for the evening.

The reception decor inside the ballroom was a classic and elegant look with a mixture of low and high centerpieces creating visual interest and beauty.  A long Estate Table provided seating for the couple and their wedding party and was a focal point of the room.

Guests were highly entertained by a special toast from the Bride’s father — he welcomed Matt into the family providing a variety of props including a steer harness and branding iron.  The story that he gave during the toast had everyone in hysterics.

We wish Meggie & Matt a lifetime of happiness!!

Beautiful wedding of Corey & Jeff!!

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!!!
