Many times, my clients will have a deceased parent, grandparent, sibling or someone else important to them and they want to incorporate a way to honor their memory into their wedding.  There are many ways to do this and I’ll share a few ways that we have used to incorporate honoring the memory of those loved ones. 

Displaying photos is always a touching tribute.

Another way to incorporate photos, is to use them as a charm to attach to a bouquet or boutonniere.

A candle burning in memory is also a beautiful gesture.

For one of my clients whose mother had passed away, she wanted her to be close to where the couple would exchange vows, so we placed a sign and flowers beside the altar area.

One of the most special ways of honoring the memory of a bride’s mom, was a custom necklace the groom had made of the bride’s moms actual handwriting.

For this bride, placing her dad’s favorite flower in her bouquet was the special way of honoring him.

Attaching a hanky or a piece of cloth to the bride’s bouquet or dress is a touching way to have the loved one close to you.

Similarly, attaching a piece of jewelry to either a bouquet or the wedding dress is a way of keeping the loved one close to your heart.

Many couples choose to place a message in memory in their Ceremony Programs, which is a very sweet tribute.

Placing a flower on an empty chair at the wedding is another way to remember a loved one.

And one of the most powerful way’s to honor those who have passed was this Table Set for One.  This particular wedding was for a police officer who was previously in the military.  The table represented his friends who have lost their life serving their country or protecting citizens.

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!!

We were pleased to be a part of this couple’s wedding and enjoyed working with the other vendors involved to create another flawless event!

Megan & Zach’s Midtown wedding!

It was such a pleasure to work along side Megan & Zach to plan their wedding.  Making it even more special was that it was my second time working with the groom’s family.  What an honor that is!

Their wedding was just beautiful and every detail was exquisite and perfect!  Bold American Events knocked it out of the park with the designs that truly exceeded the couples expectations.  The look was elegant and lush, with an English Garden feel.  The arch created for the ceremony later doubled as the backdrop for the cake.  

The couple exuded love with every look, touch and laugh throughout the day.  You couldn’t help but smile every time you saw them.  

One of the most touching moments was the bride opening the gift from the groom.  Her mother passed away when she was younger, and knowing how important she was to Megan, Zach took some old letters and cards with her handwriting and had a gorgeous necklace made with Megan’s initial in her mothers handwriting.  Needless to say, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.  That gift just goes to show what a special guy, Zach is.

A Scottie and a Yellow Jacket get married!

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

Blending the couples Alma maters resulted in a beautiful wedding for the former Agnes Scott bride, Julianna and Georgia Tech groom, Craig.  

The ceremony took place at the Chapel located at Agnes Scott College.  The grounds of the college made for such a lovely backdrop with so many picturesque spots.

Bre Sessions of Scobey Photography captured the images below.  It was such a pleasure working with her.

The color scheme of the wedding was deep purple and green. Tulip Blooming Creations perfectly designed the florals and decor.  The arrangements were truly stunning.

The reception was held at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center.  The team there were fantastic to work with and made for a great partnership.    

The family is huge Pittsburgh Steelers fans and so each guest was provided a “crying towel” to use in welcoming the new Mr. & Mrs. into the reception.  There was a sea of Yellow and Black.  

Keeping the crowd entertained and grooving to the beat was the always amazing The Moxie Band Atlanta.  Rich and the band have an energy that is truly contagious.

Guests were treated to delicious cookies as a reminder of the sweet wedding. 

We were pleased to plan and produce this flawless wedding and wish Julianna and Craig a lifetime of happiness.
