Fall is such a beautiful time, with colorful leaves, usually crisp temperatures and blue skies.  When you add to that a gorgeous bride and a handsome groom, you have the makings for something spectacular! Such is the case for Shelby & Drew.

With venue, Foxhall Resort and Sporting Club, selected, Shelby begin putting her thoughts into the vision for her wedding day.  She selected The Stables as the ceremony and reception site, which lends itself to a rustic vibe – but NOT a mason jar type of vibe, rather an elegant, sophisticated rustic vibe.

She selected some pretty amazing vendors to carry out her vision, such as Christina Robbins (Hair) and McKenzie Mann (Make-up), Happy Everything Company (Photographer),  Low Country Catering, Sweet Creations by Candi Pittman (Cake), John Amoroso (Ceremony and Cocktail Hour Musician), Hip and Hitched (DJ & Sax player), Mary McLeod with Amy Osaba (Florals), Hometown Crew (Videographer) and ShutterBooth (PhotoBooth).  Along with the JBEvents Team, these vendors expertly created and conveyed Shelby’s dream wedding.

There were a couple of adorable features that we really loved.  One was a handmade cross used at the altar.  The other was the oar used for their guest registration.  As I try to impress on all of my clients, be unique, bring your personality out in the wedding – and this couple truly did.

Take a look at the images below and I think you will agree, this was a gorgeous wedding.  What’s your favorite part? {Thank you to Happy Everything Co. for sharing these images!}

We wish Shelby & Drew a lifetime of happiness!!!  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day!!

Meggie & Matt Get Married!

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!!

Rain Drops and Roses for Rachel & Rusty!

The site for the wedding of Rachel & Rusty was Lake Lanier Islands Resort, Pineisle Pointe.  The setting is beautiful, with vast views of the lakes and other nearby islands.  Although the weather prohibited us from having the ceremony outside as planned, the location was changed to Pineisle Center where Rich Larsen of Creative Events by Sunflowers, created an intimate setting with a lovely Chuppah as the focal point.  The style of the decor was Rustic Elegance and Rich created beautiful decor that fit the theme perfectly.  The colorful florals mixed with natural elements like birch wood vases and cut tree disks gave the rustic look, but in such an elegant style.  

In addition to being Rustic Elegance, another theme was music.  The couple selected some of their favorite songs and instead of numbering the tables, they named them with the titles from their list of favs.  On each table, there was an informational document that gave the name of the song, the artist and the lyrics.  At each place setting, a slip of paper containing lyrics from a portion of the song was placed.  Throughout the reception, many of these songs were played by the band. 

Since the Groom and his family are from New Orleans, it was fitting that the Groom’s cakes were traditional da Bouche.  They were actually flown here from New Orleans so that the family was assured they were the “real thing”.  

This wedding was definitely a hit if you have a sweet-tooth, because not only was their wedding cake and da Bouche cake, there was also a Gelato Cart that offered a variety of yummy flavors for guests to enjoy!!

As a favor, guests were treated to heart-shaped cookies and cartons of milk as they left the reception – which was a huge hit. 

Other vendors we were pleased to partner with were Glen of Pixel This! photography, Bulletproof Band, Rabbi Lebow, Dreamy Gelato and The Baking Grounds.  

We wish Rachel & Rusty a lifetime of Happiness!!!!

Love is Sweet for Erin & Tim

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:30 am by JBEvents

A beautiful, sunny day with mild temperatures set the stage for the wedding of Erin & Tim.

Jenn and her team from Pure provided the Hair and Make-up services for the bridal party for a great start to the day.  The bride and her sisters (who were her attendants) got ready in the family home, which provided such a comfortable setting for the special day.

Paige of Once Like a Spark photography was the photographer.  She began capturing photos of the dress and all accessories at various locations throughout the house, giving some wonderful backdrops for the items that will have meaning for years to come.  Photos of the bride’s family also took place at the home before heading over to the Church.

Also on hand capturing the video images of the day was Jonathan (and Michael) of Evolution Video.  Jonathan is always such a pleasure to work with and his video’s are lasting treasures from the Special Day.  One trait of a videographer that is of extreme importance to me is one that is unobtrusive while expertly capturing the beauty and emotion of the day.  Jonathan always exceeds not only my expectations, but those of my clients as well!!!

Atlantic Limousine provided a limo to transport the bride, her attendants and her parents to the Church, St. John Neumann Catholic Church.  Meanwhile, the Groom, his Groomsmen (his brothers) and his parents arrived at the Church and met up with Paige for their pre-ceremony photos. After the ceremony, the limo took the wedding party to the off-site location for photos before delivering them to the reception venue.

The couple had quite a large group of guests travel from out of town for their wedding.  As a courtesy, they provided a Trolley to shuttle the guests from their hotel to the Church and then back to the hotel where they were transported by the Hotel’s shuttle to the Reception venue, 550 Trackside.

At the end of the ceremony, as the Bride & Groom were ready to make their way back up the aisle, from the back of the church, a bagpiper, played the recessional and postlude which was such a wonderful surprise for the guests.

Once all of the extended family photos were complete, the wedding party headed over to the Historic Square in Lawrenceville for some special photos.

Since the weather was so nice, guests were able to enjoy Cocktail Hour on the Terrace where they were able to mingle, watch trains go by as well as nibble on some yummy Hors D’oeuvres.

The groom built a special “frame” that held the Escort Cards. Each card was attached to the frame by a miniature clothes pin.  It was such a sweet display and guests were very intrigued by the design.

A Bokay by JoAnn provided the florals and the catering.  Each table had a slightly different centerpiece.  Some tables had tall centerpieces while others had low groupings.  The buffet had 3 beautiful arrangements adorning the presentation.

HH Deserts provided the wedding cake.  The five tier cake had a variety of interesting design components.  Three of the tiers had a lace design mimicking the bride’s dress, while one tier had a Monogram.

The bride prepared a few items {DIY} that added a nice, personal touch to the event.  She purchased four large pillows and had them embossed with the wedding date and their married names.  We placed them on a couple of sofas located in the venue.

She also prepared a sign that we hung above the Candy Buffet that said “Love Is Sweet”.  She also created adorable Favor bags which were brown paper bags that she attached a hand-dyed doily and labels on to.  They were perfect for the rustic theme.

A huge hit for the gentlemen was the Cigar Station.  The bride’s father purchased cigars which were placed on a table out on the terrace.

DJ Fernando of Lethal Rhythms provided the entertainment for the evening.  He kept the crowd energized all night long!!!

The evening ended with the couple departing through a Sparkler send-off to their waiting limo which took them to the after party before delivering them to their home where they celebrated their first night as a married couple.

We enjoyed working with these clients and wish Erin & Tim a lifetime of Happiness!!!
