A Day in the Park for Sara & Evan

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 2:41 pm by JBEvents

As Sara sat on the window ledge of her Bridal Suite at the Georgian Terrace Hotel watching the rain fall in Midtown, she refused to let the weather dampen her spirits but instead focused on the amazing celebration that would be taking place in a few, short hours.  Just like Dick Van Dyke in the Broadway production of Bye, Bye, Birdie ~ we were all singing “Gray skies are gonna clear up, put on a happy face”, and they actually did!!!

The Moore Agency provided the hair and make-up services for the bride and as always did a fabulous job.  Sara was stunning!

Frank and Wendy Gibson were the photographers for the day and they certainly had a lot of beauty to work with.  Pre-ceremony photos began at the hotel and with all of the amazing architectural details of this piece of Atlanta History, they were able to capture so many gorgeous images.

The bride selected her bridesmaids gowns from Bella Bridesmaid.  They were a blush chiffon and the fit and style was very elegant.

When the time came to head over to the Church, The Bridal Party boarded a Trolley from Great Knight Tours that took them to the beautiful Peachtree Christian Church.  The Groom and Groomsmen were also taken by Trolley to the church where they had their time with the photographers.

Sara wanted to have the flowers for the bouquets, boutineers and ceremony décor to be more subdued in color and focused more on whites, creams, blush with a touch of purple ~ however, she wanted the colors to be more intense for the reception.  Larry and Greg of Foxgloves and Ivy did an amazing job on the floral décor.  The centerpieces were gorgeous!!!  The Estate Table was especially stunning!  Since we had a very large table to accommodate over 20 guests, that dictated the need for rather extensive décor.  Larry and Greg used large white candelabra and topped them with luscious arrangements and swags of crystals.  They were just perfect and created such a special look and feel for the Estate Table.  The other guest tables had a variety of centerpieces incorporating varying sized candles and floral arrangements.  Larry and Greg truly captured the vision that Sara had for her wedding!!

The linens, which we choose from Chair Covers and Linens were perfect and provided just the “romantic” look and feel we were going for.  As a special touch, the chairs at the Estate Table had brooches attaching the chair ties for extra bling.   During Cocktail Hour, a rose-colored texture linen was used on some of the tables, while an ivory linen was used on others.  The contrast between the two created a lovely setting that was both romantic and elegant.  The guest tables linen was a very soft color that was a mix between ivory and taupe with a pink undertone. 

One very creative aspect of the wedding was that Sara provided a Calendar consisting of photos of she and Evan and had each guest find their Birthday and “sign” their greeting on that date.  They will be able to enjoy the calendar during the coming year while remembering those who shared in their joy at the wedding!!

To further enhance the setting, PPi provided lighting in the tent.  The glow created from the uplights added to the romantic feel of the wedding.

The beautiful and delicious wedding cake, which was a variety of Cheesecake flavors from the always amazing Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes was a HUGE hit with the guests!! They loved the cake so much that many went back for seconds (and I’m not naming names, but I saw some even going back for thirds!)

Shimmer Band provided through East Coast Entertainment, were the entertainment for the evening and they kept the crowd on their feet dancing all night long.

Guests had fun taking photos in the Photo Booth provided by ShutterBooth and were able to take photos away with them as a favor while also leaving a copy of the photo with a personal note for the couple.

When the time came for the party to end, guests lined the stairs and held up sparklers as Sara and Evan made their way through to the waiting vintage Rolls Royce from A Lovely View of Heaven that whisked them away to begin their honeymoon!!!

We were so pleased to have worked with this couple and their families to create and produce this gorgeous {and flawless} wedding and we wish a lifetime of happiness to Sara & Evan!!!

A huge THANK YOU to Frank Gibson for sharing the majority of these images with just a few of my snapshots of some of the details!  Please enjoy!

Maria & Hiram tie the knot!!!

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 10:51 pm by JBEvents

Sunny skies were shining down for the wedding of Maria & Hiram, even though the temps were rather chilly for this out-of-door Fall wedding.  There had been so much preparation for this wedding which included the building of a “chapel” at the home of the bride where the ceremony and then later the dinner reception took place.  This wasn’t just a small little building, but rather a fully covered area that was 74 feet long and 24 feet wide.  The ceiling was curved and had skylights which allowed the natural light to filter into the space.  At the far end was a fireplace which we used as the focal point for the ceremony.  Several chandelier were installed and large hanging floral arrangements and sheer drapery hung from the ceiling as well which softened the look.

The Moore Agency provided hair and make-up services at the home of the bride which made for a very comfortable setting for the bridal party to get ready.

The brides dress had a sweetheart neckline and a full skirt covered with soft, flowing “petals”.  The dress was gorgeous and Maria looked stunning in it!!! The bridesmaids wore long, flowing champagne colored dresses that were very flattering and beautiful on each of them.

We were so happy that we had the pleasure of working with Shari of Shari Zellers Photography!!   She is one of our favorite photographers and I can always be assured that she will take amazing photos while adhering to the timeline of the day ~ both of which are important.  Her images are always gorgeous and her creative eye sees things that make the photos unique while remaining timeless!  It’s no wonder that she is an award-winning photographer!!

It was also great to work with Jonathan Nye of Evolution Video again.  I’m sure the video will be a treasured keepsake for many years to come.  I have to brag on Jonathan as well – as he is such a talented guy and always makes clients comfortable which shows in his work.  He is one of those videographers that GETS all of the images and special moments of the day – but he does it in such a way as to not be obtrusive.  There is a reason he is on our preferred vendor list!!

This was one of those events where everything that was needed had to be rented, from the tables and chairs to the china and crystal and even the serving trays and tray-jacks.  There are many rental companies around, but based upon my experience, they are not all created equal.  I can always count on Event Rentals Unlimited to provide excellent customer service as well as quality products.  They didn’t disappoint this time!!

Linens were provided by Chair Covers and Linens.  Kudos go to Ashley Hess who worked with us at the last-minute to secure and arrange for linens for the wedding ~ after several phone calls, emails and careful verification that every table was accounted for – she was able to Rush the order through and have it delivered in the nick of time.  The linens looked beautiful!

Mauricio Velez of DJ Move was the DJ for the wedding.  He provided the ceremony and reception music.  Since both sides of the families were of Hispanic/Latin descent, he emceed in both Spanish and English.  He also played a variety of music to include American tunes as well as popular Spanish music.  Guests had a great time and there was quite a bit of Salsa dancing going on!!!

Cocktail Hour provided two different types of entertainment.  Inside the house, Bob Cardone, pianist, was playing.  He provided beautiful background music that allowed guests to mingle and to partake in the Photo Booth.  While outside in the front of the house, a Mariachi band entertained guests and created a festive  party atmosphere.

Catering and the floral décor was provided by relatives and friends of the family.  The meal consisted of Mexican dishes to include Chicken, Spanish Rice and fresh vegetables, prepared by the mother of the bride with the assistance of some of the relatives.  Judging from the empty plates that were cleared from the tables, I would say the guests truly enjoyed the meal!!!

What would a wedding be without a Wedding Cake?  We didn’t have to answer that question at this wedding.  In fact, we had a Brides cake and a Groom’s cake.  However, it did not stop there, as guests were also treated to a dessert display consisting of Mexican pastries provided by some of the grooms relatives which was a huge hit —- but even that wasn’t the end to the yummy sweets.  A Candy/Dessert buffet was also provided so guests could take sweets home with them to remember the wonderful event.  Now this was not your typical Candy/Dessert buffet – but rather one of homemade treats that were made by one of the bridesmaids.  There were mini Pecan tarts, cake pops, turtles, chocolate covered pretzels, Apple spice muffins, and Buckeyes in addition to regular mass-marketed candy varieties.  Monogrammed boxes in various sizes were provided for guests to make a To-Go box.

Since a catering company was not used, servers and bar-tenders had to be secured.  Black Tie Services was selected to provide the staffing for the event.

It is always recommended for a special event taking place at a personal residence,  to provide portable restrooms for the guests. This is true under many circumstances, and making sure to provide a reputable vendor is important.  Royal Restrooms was the vendor of choice for this wedding. 

At the end of the night, the couple departed through Sparklers and entered into the waiting Rolls Royce ~ which whisked them away to begin their life of married bliss.

We were so pleased to work with this couple and family and wish Maria & Hiram a lifetime of Happiness!!!!!

Special thanks to Shari Zellers for sharing her beautiful images which are below (except for the last five which were my snapshots)!!!

The Great White North meets the South!

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:47 am by JBEvents

 

We had the opportunity to coordinate the Rehearsal Dinner and the wedding for Elizabeth and Kevin. 

Kevin hails from Canada while Elizabeth is from here in Atlanta.  To give a nod to the uniting of the North and the South, they blended components from both areas. The Rehearsal Dinner, held at Magnolia Hall in Piedmont Park, gave those in attendance a good sense of this blending.  As guests entered the venue, they were charged with finding their “Escort Card” which was made out of puzzle pieces from Provinces of Canada.  Each guests name was written on the back of a puzzle piece and at each table, there was a puzzle where each of those assigned to the table would place their piece thereby completing the puzzle.  This was a wonderful way for guests to get to know each other since so many of these guests were meeting for the first time.   The décor on the tables was a mix of Southern inspired red and white checked table cloths with a sprinkling of confetti maple leaves.  The menu featured delicious southern specialties like Barbeque Chicken and Pork with all of the appropriate sides from Low Country Barbeque

For the wedding, a more formal and sophisticated Southern style was presented.  Ansley Golf Club hosted the reception and provided guests with different food stations to even include a Panini station.

Providing the amazing florals for the day was David LaVoy.  As always, his designs were stunning!!

Henri’s provided both the wedding and groom’s cake.  The groom’s cake was a Hockey arena – truly a hit with those Canadian guests.  There was even a “flower girl” cake and ice cream sundae bar.  Guests certainly had no shortage of sugar for this reception.

Marcus Krause was on hand to capture the images of the day. 

Keeping the crowd entertained and on the dance floor was the awesome band, MoxieRich Tatgenhorst Band Leader and owner of Axtell Productions always provides an exceptional show and this was no different.  His ability to read the crowd while keeping the wishes of the client balanced is excellent. 

Atlantic Limousine and Transportation provided all of the transportation on both the wedding day and for the rehearsal dinner to include a vintage Rolls Royce for the couple to depart in.

To tie back in to the Canadian half of the wedding, guests were treated with Maple Sugar candies in the shape of Maple leaves as they departed. 

A very special Thank You goes out to my team of Jessica and Mandi for this wedding.  They had to deal with many circumstances that were not typical for an event and did so with the utmost professionalism.  This was just another example of how Janice Blackmon Events makes every event flawless regardless of circumstances thrown our way!!!!!!!

Southern Summer Wedding of Pamela and Brian

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:59 pm by JBEvents

The day began slightly unusual for the middle of July in Atlanta – but the temps were in the low to mid 80’s ~ A welcome respite from the oppressive heat we had been dealing with.

Pamela and Brian selected the beautiful Georgian Terrace Hotel to host their nuptials. 

Beginning before sunrise, the ladies were having their hair and make-up services.  The personal stylist of the bride, Deborah, and her assistant created the hairstyles for all of the bridal party.  Pamela wore her blonde tresses up in a sculptured bun which worked perfectly with her finger tip veil.  Jennifer from Formal Faces provided the exquisite make-up application.  The girls were all picture perfect after receiving their services.

Pamela’s dress was from the Platinum collection by Priscilla of Boston.  The dress was gorgeous.  Heavily beaded on the bodice as well as detailed down the back.

 Pamela chose an awesome pair of shoes for her attire.  They were Kate Spade hot pink multi-colored sparkle glitter heels with a bow.  On the bottom of the shoes, Pamela had attached blue rhinestone stickers that said “I Do”.

The accessories that the bride selected to complete her wedding day ensemble were just perfect.  She wore a cuff bracelet, a tear-drop shaped pendant and dangle earrings. 

The bridesmaids wore Victorian lilac gowns.  They had a slight sweetheart neckline and were strapless.  The bodice was sort of pleated which gathered at the waist where a floral accoutrement made from the same fabric was attached.  The gathers then floated down the front of the dress.

The gentleman looked handsome in their Black Tuxedos with white pleated shirts and black bow ties from MW Tux

Brandy of Brandelyn Lee Photography and her assistant Chris were busy capturing the images of the couple throughout the day.  One thing is for sure, when you are at the Georgian Terrace Hotel, you have so many options of interesting backdrops and areas for photos.  The staircases, the balconies, the lobby are just a few of the popular photo spots.  Brandy took the wedding party in many of the popular areas and then took the Bride and Groom outside for some fun photos on Peachtree Street with The Fox Theatre in the background.  I am a sucker for traditions, and the bride’s sister had a family photo taken on a staircase for her wedding several years ago, and so they re-created a new version of the family photograph with Pamela in the starring role of the Bride.

The florals for the wedding were provided by Blueberry Spring.  Ivories, whites and lilacs were the predominant colors.

The ceremony was held in the Piedmont Ballroom.  Rich from Axtell Entertainment & Productions provided the violinist and harpist for the ceremony.  The family selected a variety of music for the prelude to include some old jazz standards as well as the theme from Beauty and the Beast.

Jeremiah O’Keefe-West presided over the ceremony and in his usual manner, had the couple feeling relaxed during the exchange of vows.

As guests left the ceremony, they were greeted by servers with various hors d’oeuvres and an option of champagne or Bellini’s.  The keyboardist from the band played the Baby Grand piano while guests mingled and enjoyed the passed hors d’oeuvres.

Once the time arrived for the guests to be seated for lunch, they were invited to make their way to the Escort Card table to pick up their table assignment and then enter into the beautiful Grand Ballroom.  As guests found their seats, they were able to enjoy the music of the band while waiting on the Bride and Groom to enter.

Upon making their entrance, the Bride and Groom danced their first dance as husband and wife to On A Night Like This by Dave Barnes.  Her father then danced with her to My Girl – so appropriate.  The groom and his mom then took the dance floor and danced to In My Life by the Beatles. 

Tamara of I Do Linens provided the luscious linens.  Since the bride wanted to incorporate pink into the palette, ½ of the tables had pink satin linens while the other tables had ivory linens.  To further create visual interest, the pink tables had ivory napkins and chair ties and the ivory linens had “wisteria” napkins and chair ties.  The Head Table had a custom ivory linen that was textured and was so elegant.  The Bride’s Cake Table was covered in custom couture linen that resembled a ballerina tutu.  The fitted top was edged with rhinestone beading.  It was absolutely stunning!!!

The Moxie Band provided the entertainment for the reception.  They have such a great sound and the way they interact with the audience keeps it lively for all.  The guests enjoyed dancing all afternoon.

The Bride and Groom’s cakes were provided by Jeff of Frosted Pumpkin.  The bride’s cake was a four-tier ivory with a scattered pearl design.  The Groom’s cake was a chocolate two-tiered cake with a Brave’s logo on the top and chocolate covered and drizzled strawberries around the layers.

To enhance the look of the place settings, the clients rented Clear glass chargers with gold beading as well as Windsor flatware from Event Rentals Unlimited.  They also rented gold Chiavari chairs from Event Rentals Unlimited. The ballroom truly looked elegant!!

For an extra-special touch, the clients rented a white dance floor – also from Event Rentals Unlimited

To add a real Atlanta flavor to the event, The Varsity provided their famous fried peach pies.  As guests left the event, they were treated to a pie and a cold carton of milk.  A very sweet ending to a wonderful day.

The couple made their departure through bubbles into a waiting 1947 Rolls Royce from Atlantic Limousine and Transportation. They were then whisked away to the Ritz-Carlton ~ Buckhead for their wedding night.  After a few hours to rest, they met up with many of their guests and partied until late in the evening.  As the special day came to a close, I’m sure everyone was reflecting on what a fabulous wedding celebration they had witnessed.

The JBEvents team was pleased to be involved with producing the wedding for this wonderful family and we wish a lifetime of happiness to Pamela and Brian.

Atlanta Wedding Photographer Weds

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:35 pm by JBEvents

 

One of Atlanta’s prominent wedding photographers, was the Star in FRONT of the camera on October 3rd for her own wedding. 

While it’s always an honor to be hired to be the consultant for any wedding, being hired to be the consultant for an industry professionals wedding is an even higher honor. 

The weather was beautiful on this fall day – Sunny with a light breeze.  The day began with the awesome team from The Moore Agency providing hair and make-up services for the wedding party.  Steve Moore and his team created their magic and made the girls all feel like they were playing dress-up. 

Once the ladies were finished with their hair and make-up, the bride’s attendants donned their wedding finery.  They wore chocolate-brown dresses that were a jersey fabric that was easy to move around in and looked so nice.  The bride, Shari, made each of her attendants a shrug to wear with the dress in a brown crushed-velvet fabric.  Shari also made the jewelry that her attendants wore for the wedding.  Each was created to portray the personality of the person wearing it.  The color of the jewelry and materials were similar, but each was slightly different.  Each piece was amazing, and the attendants were all so thrilled with their new baubles.

Shari arrived at the Venue, Villa Christina, where she was helped into her dress.  The dress was a strapless mermaid type style.  The bottom and train were made of soft petal layers that gave a dream-like look. 

 

The theme of the wedding décor was Moroccan.  Shari spent months collecting lanterns and other décor items that Edge Design incorporated into the décor.   The finished look was nothing less than stunning.  The colors were chocolate-brown with accents of teal.  Peacock feathers were used in several forms from being in the Bride’s bouquet to some of the centerpieces.  The bridesmaid’s bouquets were wrapped in this beautiful ribbon that also incorporated the color theme of the day but also had sequins for an extra special look.  Maxine and Gabrielle Mecca of Edge Design, spent hours transforming the look of the ballroom and making it feel like you were entering into Marrakech or Casablanca.

The one and only Rev. Rick of All-Faith Weddings performed the ceremony.  He is such a joy to work with and be around.  His presence elicits a feeling of calm and his smile can light up a room.  One of the personal touches that he puts on his ceremonies is that he gives the couple the script of their wedding – so that they have a lasting document of exactly what was said on their wedding day. 

Shari and Steven’s “babies”  – their dogs Sophie and Duncan, who are adorable King Charles Spaniels, were the Flower Girl and Ring Bearer.  Sophie wore a flower collar while Duncan wore a shirt collar and tie along with cuffs complete with cufflinks on his front paws.  They were led (or in Sophie’s case carried) down the aisle by one of the bridesmaids and groomsmen.  They were so cute and threatened to steal the show until Shari descended down the stairs to meet her mom and walk down the aisle. 

 

Villa Christina has a beautiful lawn and gazebo that is perfect for weddings.  There are also so many picturesque places around the venue that it can be a photographers dream.  With bridges and waterfalls and gardens – the choices are endless for backdrops!

Mark Brickman of The Baker’s Man, created the wedding cake based upon the design that Shari had envisioned.  It was truly one of a kind.  The top of the cake had a replica of a lantern made completely of sugar.  A battery-operated candle was placed inside the sugar lantern so that it glowed.  Mark has recently added a new flavor for his cakes, Key Lime, and that was one of the layers, while white chocolate and with Lemon curd and Mandarin orange filling as well as a chocolate marble cake with Oreo cookie mixed with Swiss vanilla buttercream completed the other layers. 

The cake was created based upon the original designs for the Invitations by Deco Marj.  Based on Shari’s thoughts and visions, Marjorie created a unique invitation as well as other paper products used for the wedding.  Her creativity and attention to detail are just a couple of her amazing attributes!

The crowd was kept up on their feet dancing the night away to the tunes that Ted Crowder of Atlanta Bands and Dj’s played.  During the cocktail hour prior to the dinner/reception, he played music that had a Moroccan feel to it so that guests could get into the mood.  But during the reception, popular party music filled the air.

Two good friends of Shari, Chris Williams from New Orleans, and Will Jacks from Mississippi were the photographers for the evening.  These guys were so much fun to work with.  Of course, since Shari is a photographer and is also the Atlanta coordinator for the Pictage Users Group, there definitely was not a shortage of photographers and cameras around at the event. 

Guests were treated to a delicious buffet that also contained a few Moroccan dishes.  Then when guests were finished eating, they were invited to enter the “lounge” area where they could recline on overstuffed pillows and a rug that was very reminiscent of entering into the tent of the Arabian nights.  Also in the lounge area was a photo booth complete with props that guests could don to create a fun image for the couple. 

Capturing all of the events of the day on video was Jonathan Nye of Evolution Video.  I always love working with Jonathan because he captures the day with a finished product that you can feel the emotions.  Another reason that I enjoy working with Jonathan, is because he is one of those videographers that are not obtrusive but rather just sneaks quietly in the background to capture all of the events of the day – so you never really know he is there – but his video proves that he was certainly right there in the middle of it all.

When the time came for the couple to depart, guests were invited downstairs to create a sparkler fanfare for Shari and Steven.  The couple made their way through the path of guests, stopping momentarily to kiss each other before getting into the vintage Rolls Royce provided by A Lovely View of Heaven, owned and operated by Dana Fuss.

 As they departed, the guests were still talking about what an enchanting evening it had been.  The dreams and visions of this bride were definitely fulfilled and we were so pleased to be a part of this very special day.

Congratulations and Happiness always to Shari and Steven!!!!!
