One of our beautiful Spring weddings took place at the Atlanta Botanical Garden!  The adorable couple, Katie and Brandon, were such a sweet couple to work with and their wedding day was just spectacular!!

Starting the day off in her family home, Katie, her Mom, Grandmother and sister had their hair and make-up done by the talented team at Authentic Beauty.  Once complete, we loaded them up in the shuttle provided by Atlantic Limousine and headed to the Renaissance Hotel to pick up the bridesmaids.  From there it was time to head to the Atlanta Botanical Garden!

Katie selected her beautiful wedding gown at Bridal’s by Lori and had alterations done by the amazing Rodica Lazarian!  The bridesmaids dresses were lapis colored from David’s Bridal.  They all looked lovely.

Unfortunately, the weather was not in our favor for the day, but even so, Shari Zellers, used her creativity to find beautiful areas to take the pre-ceremony photos while keeping everyone as dry as possible.  She did a fantastic job!  When the Groom and his groomsmen arrived, we kept them tucked away until the bride was safely hidden and then Shari had a great time photographing the guys.

The ceremony was performed by a close friend of the couple which made for a very intimate and truly custom ceremony.  The Groom, who is a journalist wrote the ceremony and then the couple wrote their own vows.

The stunning decor was provided by EventScapes.  The vision was to enhance the feel of the Botanical Garden without overpowering it which was done by keeping the design in a natural state with elements like birch, driftwood, and moss.  The arbor designed for the ceremony was one of the most beautiful ones I have ever seen.  It was created with twisted willow branches with floral touches and greenery.  Lush pomander balls with deep purple flowers decorated the aisle.  The reception decor was fabulous.  The Head Table had a long and lush design mixed with candles of varying heights.  The linens of moss-green and eggplant further enhanced the look of the room.  The draping behind the band made for an elegant presentation while providing a lovely focal point.

The Amati Chamber Ensemble provided the ceremony and Cocktail Hour music.  This group never disappoints.  They make the entire process from hiring/Contracting until playing the last note of their performance so easy for the client.  Sarah Paul is so accommodating in working with each client to make certain that the musical selections are just what they want for their special day.  These musicians are top-notch in every area and we love working with them.

Another one of our favorite vendors to work with, PPi, provided the sound system for the ceremony making sure that all guests were able to hear the couple saying their vows. 

A Divine Event provided the delicious southern-inspired meal which guests truly enjoyed.

Getting the reception started included the Bride’s Father welcoming all of the guests and then the Grandfather of the Groom offering the Blessing.  The couple had their first dance followed by the always special, Father/Daughter dance!

The beautiful and delicious wedding cake was provided by Mark Lotti of Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes.  The cake was cheesecake and guests were seen going back for seconds and thirds.

We were so excited to have the Rupert’s Orchestra providing the entertainment for the evening.  As always they know how to get guests out on the dance floor and partying all night long.

Some friends of the couple have a band, so as a special treat to the guests and in honor of the new Mr. & Mrs., they performed several songs!

The clients treated their guests to transportation from the three host hotels to the venue and back to the hotels since many of the guests were from out-of-town.  Atlantic Limo provided our transportation all weekend long and was such a huge help in making sure that everyone was where they needed to be in a timely and professional manner.

We were so happy to assist this wonderful family with the wedding plans and we wish Katie and Brandon a Lifetime of Happiness!!

Amanda & Lorenz Wedding among the Grapes!!

Amanda and Lorenz selected Chateau Elan as the location for their wedding.  It was the perfect place for all of their guests who traveled from all over to come together and enjoy the weekend festivities!

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 floral decor was provided by Your Event Solution.  Using the deep pink, purple and green tones for the color palette created an elegant look for the decor.

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!
