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!!

Wedded Bliss for Sharmeen & John!!

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 12:19 pm by JBEvents

What a sweet couple this was!  I had so much fun working with them to create their very special wedding day at Chateau Elan.

Capturing the images and memories of the day was Angie Londono.  I appreciate her sharing the images of the day for us all to enjoy!

Pamela from Design House Weddings created the lovely florals for the day.  The bouquets were just perfect and the ceremony stage was magical.  The ballroom had twinkling lights and a chandelier hung over the dance floor adding to the beauty of the decor. The sweetheart table was accented with soft draping behind the couple, a beautiful ribbon rose linen on the table and candles on the floor in front of the table creating a very romantic ambiance.

Ceremony music was provided by Antonio Allen on sax.  He was amazing and so very talented!  Everyone was mesmerized with his performance.  Even other hotel guests stopped to listen to him as the sound carried through the Atrium. He provided just the atmosphere the couple desired for this special occasion.

Rhodes Bakery provided the the wedding and groom’s cakes.  Since John is a HUGE Knicks fan, Sharmeen surprised him with his favorite team logo on the Groom’s cake.  He was indeed surprised and super excited. 

The groom’s father performed a special song for the couple during the reception which was such a special touch. 

DJ Louie & DJ Felipe kept the crowd entertained throughout the evening.  Guests had so much fun out on the dance floor.

As guests departed, they were treated to a wonderful favor bag with a poem attached and then filled with spiced cider, chocolates and a bookmark commemorating the special occasion. 

Take a look at the images below to see how beautiful this wedding was and join me in wishing Sharmeen and John a lifetime of happiness!!!

Military Wedding at the Vineyard!

The wedding of Kelly & John is one that was filled with so much beauty.  The couple could be mistaken for models and the added bonus of John being in the military makes for even more gushing.  

The setting was Chateau Elan.  Ceremony was held in the Atrium with Reception to follow in the Debussy Ballroom. The grandeur of the venue itself proves a fabulous backdrop, but add to that the creative genius of JWilbur of EventScapes and you have truly a photo-worthy wedding.  Several special touches with the decor were incorporated, such as alphabet decals placed on the mirrors in the pre-function area directing guests to which display they would locate their table assignment card.  JWilbur also created a stunning arch for use at the ceremony.  You can see more of the lovely details in the photos below provided by Kristen Alexander.

One fun detail for the couple was the Groom’s cake – created by Mark Lotti of Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes.  Kelly wanted to surprise John with a nod to her alma mater, Auburn University, so the cake was designed with the decor of his alma mater, Ole Miss, on the outside, but inside the cake, the layers were blue and orange.  Everyone had a chuckle at that little twist.
