Amanda and her bridal party began their day receiving hair and make-up services from The Moore Agency.  Everyone looked so beautiful!  

The wedding dress which was purchased at Wedding Angels was spectacular with beading, asymmetrical bands, and ruching.  The bridesmaids dresses were Emerald green and purchased at David’s Bridal.

The guys looked handsome in their classic black tuxes with the pop of color in their ties to match the bridesmaids dresses.  The gentlemen’s formal attire came from Savvi.

The ceremony which was in the Atrium of Chateau Elan was set in the round with the Chuppah in the center.   This allowed all guests to view the couple saying their vows. The beautiful music for the ceremony was provided by Harpist, Lisa Handman.

We enjoyed working with Laura Tarquino of Vosamo Photography who captured all of the beauty of the day.  Joseph Leone of Weddings by Joseph provided the videography of the wedding ~ it’s always a pleasure to work with him.

After a delicious dinner, guests were treated to the delicious wedding cake from The Baking Grounds.  And just in case they didn’t have enough sugar from the cake, a Candy Buffet was provided containing some of the couples favorite selections.

As a special treat {and surprize} to the couple and their guests, the Bride’s sister sang a song dedicated to her sister and new brother-in-law.

The crowd was on the dance floor from the time they entered the Ballroom until the last dance song of the evening thanks to the amazing sounds of the Rupert’s Orchestra. It was a good thing that Flip Flops were provided for the  guests since they danced all night long!

Southern Summer Wedding of Pamela and Brian

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:59 pm by JBEvents

The day began slightly unusual for the middle of July in Atlanta – but the temps were in the low to mid 80’s ~ A welcome respite from the oppressive heat we had been dealing with.

Pamela and Brian selected the beautiful Georgian Terrace Hotel to host their nuptials. 

Beginning before sunrise, the ladies were having their hair and make-up services.  The personal stylist of the bride, Deborah, and her assistant created the hairstyles for all of the bridal party.  Pamela wore her blonde tresses up in a sculptured bun which worked perfectly with her finger tip veil.  Jennifer from Formal Faces provided the exquisite make-up application.  The girls were all picture perfect after receiving their services.

Pamela’s dress was from the Platinum collection by Priscilla of Boston.  The dress was gorgeous.  Heavily beaded on the bodice as well as detailed down the back.

 Pamela chose an awesome pair of shoes for her attire.  They were Kate Spade hot pink multi-colored sparkle glitter heels with a bow.  On the bottom of the shoes, Pamela had attached blue rhinestone stickers that said “I Do”.

The accessories that the bride selected to complete her wedding day ensemble were just perfect.  She wore a cuff bracelet, a tear-drop shaped pendant and dangle earrings. 

The bridesmaids wore Victorian lilac gowns.  They had a slight sweetheart neckline and were strapless.  The bodice was sort of pleated which gathered at the waist where a floral accoutrement made from the same fabric was attached.  The gathers then floated down the front of the dress.

The gentleman looked handsome in their Black Tuxedos with white pleated shirts and black bow ties from MW Tux

Brandy of Brandelyn Lee Photography and her assistant Chris were busy capturing the images of the couple throughout the day.  One thing is for sure, when you are at the Georgian Terrace Hotel, you have so many options of interesting backdrops and areas for photos.  The staircases, the balconies, the lobby are just a few of the popular photo spots.  Brandy took the wedding party in many of the popular areas and then took the Bride and Groom outside for some fun photos on Peachtree Street with The Fox Theatre in the background.  I am a sucker for traditions, and the bride’s sister had a family photo taken on a staircase for her wedding several years ago, and so they re-created a new version of the family photograph with Pamela in the starring role of the Bride.

The florals for the wedding were provided by Blueberry Spring.  Ivories, whites and lilacs were the predominant colors.

The ceremony was held in the Piedmont Ballroom.  Rich from Axtell Entertainment & Productions provided the violinist and harpist for the ceremony.  The family selected a variety of music for the prelude to include some old jazz standards as well as the theme from Beauty and the Beast.

Jeremiah O’Keefe-West presided over the ceremony and in his usual manner, had the couple feeling relaxed during the exchange of vows.

As guests left the ceremony, they were greeted by servers with various hors d’oeuvres and an option of champagne or Bellini’s.  The keyboardist from the band played the Baby Grand piano while guests mingled and enjoyed the passed hors d’oeuvres.

Once the time arrived for the guests to be seated for lunch, they were invited to make their way to the Escort Card table to pick up their table assignment and then enter into the beautiful Grand Ballroom.  As guests found their seats, they were able to enjoy the music of the band while waiting on the Bride and Groom to enter.

Upon making their entrance, the Bride and Groom danced their first dance as husband and wife to On A Night Like This by Dave Barnes.  Her father then danced with her to My Girl – so appropriate.  The groom and his mom then took the dance floor and danced to In My Life by the Beatles. 

Tamara of I Do Linens provided the luscious linens.  Since the bride wanted to incorporate pink into the palette, ½ of the tables had pink satin linens while the other tables had ivory linens.  To further create visual interest, the pink tables had ivory napkins and chair ties and the ivory linens had “wisteria” napkins and chair ties.  The Head Table had a custom ivory linen that was textured and was so elegant.  The Bride’s Cake Table was covered in custom couture linen that resembled a ballerina tutu.  The fitted top was edged with rhinestone beading.  It was absolutely stunning!!!

The Moxie Band provided the entertainment for the reception.  They have such a great sound and the way they interact with the audience keeps it lively for all.  The guests enjoyed dancing all afternoon.

The Bride and Groom’s cakes were provided by Jeff of Frosted Pumpkin.  The bride’s cake was a four-tier ivory with a scattered pearl design.  The Groom’s cake was a chocolate two-tiered cake with a Brave’s logo on the top and chocolate covered and drizzled strawberries around the layers.

To enhance the look of the place settings, the clients rented Clear glass chargers with gold beading as well as Windsor flatware from Event Rentals Unlimited.  They also rented gold Chiavari chairs from Event Rentals Unlimited. The ballroom truly looked elegant!!

For an extra-special touch, the clients rented a white dance floor – also from Event Rentals Unlimited

To add a real Atlanta flavor to the event, The Varsity provided their famous fried peach pies.  As guests left the event, they were treated to a pie and a cold carton of milk.  A very sweet ending to a wonderful day.

The couple made their departure through bubbles into a waiting 1947 Rolls Royce from Atlantic Limousine and Transportation. They were then whisked away to the Ritz-Carlton ~ Buckhead for their wedding night.  After a few hours to rest, they met up with many of their guests and partied until late in the evening.  As the special day came to a close, I’m sure everyone was reflecting on what a fabulous wedding celebration they had witnessed.

The JBEvents team was pleased to be involved with producing the wedding for this wonderful family and we wish a lifetime of happiness to Pamela and Brian.
