Steampunk meets Elegance for Denise & Morgan!

This wedding was SO MUCH FUN to plan and produce!  It was definitely a blending of styles in order to accommodate the desires of the couple with that of the parents.  Denise and Morgan are huge fans of Sci-Fi and Steampunk.  Since the parents would have many friends in attendance that probably wouldn’t know or understand the symbolism, the request was that we would incorporate touches of the themes paying homage to the couples desires without going overboard. So, the planning began!  With The Retreat at Perimeter Summit selected as the venue, next came the work on the design concept.  

Prior to bringing JWilbur of EventScapes on board, I did extensive research on Steampunk wedding elements.  JWilbur and I brainstormed some ideas and he developed an amazing proposal that would incorporate very small touches that the couple would notice without drawing too much attention, such as small gears woven into the bride’s bouquet and the groom’s boutonniere.  The Chuppah was a unique design which used 4 of the family’s Tallitot as well as a gear “chandelier”.

Mark Lotti, Classic Cheesecake and Cakes definitely put on his creative genius hat when he designed the Wedding and Groom’s cakes.  The wedding cake utilized the gear design that was also used on the invitation.  The Groom’s cake, which was the highlight, was a Tardis {from the Dr. Who movies}. The couple LOVED how the cakes turned out.  As was appropriate, the theme from Dr. Who was played as the couple cut the cakes.

Atlanta Beat band kept the crowd entertained and on the dance floor all night long.  They were amazing as always and everyone had such a great time.

Especially entertaining was the couples First Dance.  With the help of dance instructors, Allyssa and Robbie, they had choreographed a dance to the song Season’s of Love from the Broadway Musical, Rent.  It was fantastic!!!!!! Allyssa and Robbie were guests and you could tell from their expressions how proud they were of Denise & Morgan!

Winter Wedded Bliss for Lindsey & Justin!

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

Winter weather in Atlanta is always unpredictable, but when your wedding is planned to take place on the weekend of the week of an Atlanta snow/ice storm, there is even more reason to be stressed.  But, luck was on our side and although some guests who were trying to fly in from the Northeast were unable to make the trip, the weather here in the ATL cleared up, ice melted and Lindsey and Justin had a wonderful wedding weekend!

The Westin ~ Buckhead was the site for the nuptials.  Jim White transformed the ceremony area into a beautiful, winter white, sparkly wonderland.  The Chuppah was lovely and was such a perfect place to share their vows.  The reception decor was gorgeous as well and included custom linens from Jim White Designs.

Lindsey’s Ravini gown was gorgeous and she looked like a princess in it.  Justin looked very handsome in his custom-made tux.  The bridesmaids wore dark charcoal long dresses from Bella Bridesmaid

Adding an extra special touch to the ceremony was the Bride’s step-father, co-presiding with Rabbi Levenburg.  

We always enjoy working with Laura Tarquino of Vosamo Photography.  Her images {see below} capture the beauty and emotion of the day. 

Guests had fun with the Photo Booth from ShutterBooth.  The silver, sequined back drop added to the overall winter wonderland theme. 

Keeping the crowd on the dance floor all night was none other than Atlanta Beat!  Their high-energy and excellent play-list had guests wanting more!

We were so happy to work with Lindsey & Justin on their wedding and we wish them a lifetime of Happiness!!!!
