We had so much fun working with this couple to plan their beautiful wedding!!  

We selected Hyatt Regency Atlanta at Villa Christina for the venue.  The decor of the Hotel creates such a lovely backdrop.  

Rho and her bridal party selected their gowns from Alfred Angelo.  The bridal party wore a Jade hue, while the Maid of Honor wore Teal.  Rho’s shoes were AMAZING teal, Badgley Mischka peep-toe pumps.  

Davon and his guys looked handsome in their tuxedos from Savvi.

One of the Bride’s bridesmaids provided the hair styling for the day and the girls assisted each other with their make-up.  

The couple created a very unique Ceremony Program.  Guests were entertained by reading facts about the couple and their relationship as well as seeing how many States were represented by those attending.

Chelsea Floral Design Studio successfully created the bride’s vision with the personal flowers and reception decor.  The designs were classic and elegant with a slightly contemporary twist.  

Hilarye from Fotographa captured the amazing images of the day and you can enjoy them below. 

Also on hand was Joseph Leone, of Leone Productions creating the wedding video so that the couple can relive the day over and over.

The linens, provided by CoverUps, created the perfect look in the Ballroom to carry out the Teal and Black theme. 

One of the more contemporary touches was the wedding cake created by the Pastry Chef at the venue.  With a base of simple white, Teal and Black ribbons were placed artistically on the cake to give a geometric visual presentation. 

Marquee Events provided the music for the ceremony and the reception and as always were excellent.

The couple was surrounded by love from their closest friends and family and the joy could be felt by everyone.

The team of vendors were exceptional and we were honored to have partnered with each one to create another flawless wedding!

We wish Rho & Davon a lifetime of happiness!!!!!

Fairy Tales Do Come True for Megan & Marcos!

Couple walking in the vineyard

You have heard me say it before and I know I will say it again, but I have the BEST clients in the world!!!!  This adorable couple hired me to plan and produce their beautiful wedding and it was such a blast.  Although the couple resides in Abu Dhabi, we successfully planned the wedding long-distance with only a couple of in-person meetings.  Megan trusted my recommendations which proved to relieve a lot of stress on her part since she couldn’t be here to meet with vendors in person.  

They selected one of my favorite venues, Chateau Elan.  The ceremony took place in the Atrium with reception to follow in the Debussy Ballroom.  It was the perfect setting!!

The Moore Agency performed their always-amazing hair styling and make-up application for all of the ladies.  Their team worked as the ladies enjoyed a delicious brunch complete with a Mimosa Bar making for a fun wedding morning. 

With a color palette of Tiffany, Black and Silver and plenty of glitz and glamour, the wedding vision came to life.  Chelsea Floral Designs expertly created the bride’s vision.  Megan had purchased many items along the way that she wanted to be incorporated into the wedding, so I presented them to David and Patrick of Chelsea Floral, who in turn took the items and used them in creative ways for one-of-a-kind stunning decor.  The hanging chandelier over the sweetheart table was breath-taking!

Catherine Rogers provided ceremony music on her harp. The sound was magical echoing throughout the Atrium of Chateau Elan.

Honeymoon Bakery created the wedding and Groom’s cake.  In perfect keeping with the Tiffany Blue theme, the pastry chef designed the wedding cake to look like Tiffany boxes.  The bride surprised the groom with an adorable groom’s cake paying homage to his participation in triathlons.

Marquee Events, DJ Matt, kept the crowd energized and on the dance floor throughout the evening.  Everyone had a fantastic time.

Joseph Leone of Leone Productions provided the videography service and did a great job of capturing the joy and excitement of the day.

Guests had a great time posing for photos in the photo booth provided by ShutterBooth.  

Special thanks to Katherine Birkbeck for sharing the gorgeous wedding photos included.  She was a true pleasure to work with and quite an artistic photographer!  I’m sure you will enjoy viewing the lovely images below!

We wish Megan & Marcos a continued lifetime of happiness!!!  Thank you for allowing Janice Blackmon Events to be a part of your special day!!

Victorian theme for Elsa & Brian!!!

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:26 pm by JBEvents

The wedding celebration of Elsa & Brian was more than just beautiful ~ it was a weekend full of touching celebrations.

On Thursday, surrounded by close friends and family, the couple exchanged vows at Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.  After the small and intimate ceremony, the couple and a small group of family and friends celebrated at the home of a close friend.

Friday, guests were able to partake in one of Atlanta’s finest festivals, The Dogwood Festival.  The Atlanta Trolley was used to provide guest transportation from the hotel to Piedmont Park so that  they could enjoy an afternoon at the Festival.

The Rehearsal Dinner was held at Baraonda Cafe.  A delicious family style meal was served including pasta and chicken Marsala.  Each guest had a choice of their dessert, but what could be better than Tiramisu?

Saturday brought together a team of excellent vendors, most of whom we were delighted to recommend. 

Elsa choose an Edwardian/Victorian theme.  The color scheme was purple, silver, and white.  This theme and the colors worked perfectly in the Grand Ballroom of The Georgian Terrace Hotel.

Robyn Feinberg of RSVP Invitations created the custom invitations for the couple.  She did an outstanding job.  The monogram was carried through on all of the paper products created even including the Escort Cards and Table Numbers. 

Wilbur of EventScapes created the gorgeous florals which included roses, orchids, stock, hydrangea and Delphinium.  For the ceremony, white sheer drapery created a backdrop while ambient lighting created a romantic glow.  Two pedestals holding lush arrangements with hanging votives flanked the stage while two other arrangements  on Corinthian columns were placed at the beginning of the aisle.  A white carpet was used as the aisle runner.

After the ceremony, guests were invited downstairs for the Cocktail Hour where they were greeted with beverages and delicious hors d’oeuvres. 

Once guests were enjoying Cocktail Hour, the vendors began transforming the Grand Ballroom for the reception. 

Linens in the luscious hue of Victorian lilac graced the tables provided by Chair Covers and Linens

To add to the elegance of the overall look, Silver Chiavari chairs from Event Rentals Unlimited were used as were old-fashioned saucer type champagne flutes. 

When guests were invited back into the Ballroom for dinner and dancing, they found their seat assignments displayed on a life-sized silver frame.  Truly an elegant presentation. 

Tall silver candelabra with elegant floral arrangements placed a top centered the tables from EventScapes.  The look was perfect within the Victorian theme.  Wilbur never disappoints!!!

Mark Lotti of Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes created the Bride’s and Groom’s cakes.  His cakes never cease to amaze me.  Not only were the cakes stunning, but the detail incorporated especially into the Groom’s cake was outstanding.  The Groom grew up in Reading, Pennsylvania and one of the symbols of the city was a Pagoda.  Brian has a piece of art that shows the Pagoda which we placed next to the Groom’s cake along with a description of the semblance of the cake.  In addition to the two cakes which consisted of various yummy flavors, guests were also treated to several varieties of Mark’s cheesecakes. 

Button It Up provided a Green Screen for a photo booth which was a huge hit with all of the guests.  The couple provided additional props that guests had so much fun posing with.  I love this interactive type of activity which involves the guests while also providing memories for the couple. 

Slava and Sarah Slavik were the photographers for the wedding.  Once I receive their professional photos, I’ll post an update – but for now, my snapshots will have to do.

Joseph Leone captured all of the festivities on video and I’m sure the couple will enjoy watching the video for years to come.

Ted Crowder of Atlanta Bands & DJ’s provided the entertainment for the evening and kept guests having fun on the dance floor.

PPi (Production People Inc) provided the lighting and customized GOBO. 

Later in the evening, fun late-night snacks came out consisting of mini corn dogs and french fries.  This was a huge hit.

As guests departed, they were treated to a slice of cake in a custom box that too incorporated the monogram of the couple. 

It was such a pleasure working with this couple to create their wedding.  We wish Elsa & Brian a lifetime of Happiness!!!!
