Elise & Michael’s BIG DAY!

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:15 am by JBEvents

Sometimes, the star’s align and two people make the decision that was long in coming, to get married.  When Elise & Michael made that decision, one of the first things they did was hire me.  We spent quite a bit of time selecting a venue, but after much deliberation and site-visits, they decided on Chateau Elan!

Once the venue was selected, we moved on to selecting the other vendors to be a part of their BIG DAY!  {See full list below!}

I’ve said it a million times, every wedding (or special occasion), should be unique to the couple (person, business, etc.).  There are many ways to accomplish this, but it all starts out with being true to who you are, what means the most to you and allowing the professionals to do our job to bring that vision to life! For this couple, it was the blending of their love for geeky things with an elegant touch. 

It’s no secret that Chateau Elan is one of my favorite venues, because no matter where on the property you have your wedding, it will be wonderful.  With Elise & Michael, we wanted something a little different.  The ceremony took place in the Atrium, which is gorgeous in its own right, but when you add in draping, and a ceremony arch with lush flowers and an aisle treatment with soft touches of color – you have a dream-like setting.

The location for the reception was the Winery Pavilion.  Now, with this selection, there were a few things that the couple didn’t like about the venue, biggest being the 80′ long mural on the back wall. So, the decision was made to drape it.  Calling on the always fabulous creative of JWilbur of EventScapes, he did just that and created a completely different look and feel of the pavilion.  Also, instead of the ceiling fan lights – which aren’t elegant, or in line with the desired look,  Wilbur and his team hung beautiful crystal chandeliers.

One of the ways that the couple brought their own, unique style to the reception was with the Groom’s cake which was a replica of the Dungeons and Dragons Handbook.  Mark Lotti, Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes, did a fantastic job creating the cake.  He also made the beautiful and delicious wedding cake! Mark never disappoints and the degree of his attention to detail is remarkable!!!!

The Moore Agency was on hand to make all of the ladies even more beautiful than they already were.  While hair and make-up services were being provided, the ladies enjoyed some delicious bites and tasty beverages in their suite.

Meanwhile, the guys had a fun and filling lunch at Paddy’s Restaurant and Bar onsite at the resort!!

Ceremony, Cocktail Hour, Dinner and Reception music was provided by the all-talented, Jeni Michelson!  For the ceremony and cocktail hour, Jeni treated the guests to beautiful renditions on the keyboard – adding in her tantalizing vocals for the cocktail hour.  During the reception, she switched over to DJ and kept the crowd dancing throughout the evening!

Everyone had a blast in the photo booth! ShutterBooth provided a fun, interactive experience where guests were able to create a lasting memory of the wedding for the happy couple as well a having a memento of the special day to take away!

Michelle Landreau captured the gorgeous images throughout the day.  Her easy style makes for a comfortable atmosphere for the couple, which in turn creates images that capture the emotion and beauty of the day!  Thank you Michelle for sharing these images with us!

Jonathan Nye, of Cre8tive Cinema, was onsite creating a film of all of the details and special moments of the day.  He is always such a pleasure to work with, and his talent is top-notch! I’ve included his teaser film down below the photos!  

As promised, here is the link to the teaser film by Jonathan of Cre8tive Cinema.

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!

If You Love Wine and Party’s …

Posted in Other Events, Planning Tips and Information, Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:30 am by JBEvents

One of the benefits of being an Event Planner is getting to check out various venues  – some of which end up being a place where I get excited for the possibilities that my mind conjures up.  Recently, I had the pleasure to visit one such place in the Castleberry Hills area of Atlanta {or should I say two such places}!

The Wine Shoe is a boutique, wine-tasting store based upon the travels of owners Nora and Shannon Wiley.  They travel the world and hand-pick varieties of wine usually from small, craft wineries – many of which are family owned and date back generations.  When you enter the beautiful shop, you feel as though you just entered into a private wine cellar perhaps in Italy.  The furnishings are eclectic, antique and recycled and not only beautiful but very welcoming.  The sommelier is extremely knowledgeable and works to create perfectly paired tastings.  The shop can host a tasting for up to 40 guests – but why stop at just a tasting?  The shop can be rented out to host private parties and would be an excellent choice for Rehearsal Dinners, Bridal showers, Birthday or Anniversary celebrations, Holiday gatherings , Bachelor or Bachelorette parties or any excuse to have a get-together.  They regularly host wine classes for those wishing to increase their knowledge of wines, especially to learn how to always pick just the perfect bottle for yourself or a gift. 

In addition to the wine shop, Nora and Shannon also own a special events facility, The Wiley Art Gallery.  Just around the corner from The Wine Shoe, you enter a renovated 1920’s warehouse turned loft that holds such character for an intimate wedding or other celebration.  Complete with a small warming kitchen, dumb-waiter shaft and hardwood floors, this venue is for the client that wants something different.  The options are endless, and as I walked around and admired the surroundings, my mind was spinning with ideas and dreams for producing an event there.  

Enjoy my snapshots below and go visit The Wine Shoe to pick up some knowledge of a new wine for your repertoire!  When you are ready to begin planning your celebration there or anywhere, contact us to let the Planning begin for your Flawless event!!

Valentine’s Day Ideas ~ Couples Edition

Posted in Other Events, Planning Tips and Information tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 10:30 am by JBEvents

Earlier this week I provided ideas for a Girlfriends/BFF Valentines Day but since the main focus of Valentines Day is COUPLES here is a post to give ideas to those couples who may not have decided how to celebrate with the one they love!

Of course, you can always go out to dinner – but let’s face it, sometimes the crowds can be a deterrent.  Why not have a night-in instead, cook a meal together and then watch a Romantic movie.  Cooking a meal together can be romantic and curling up on the couch with your sweetie to watch a romantic movie can be a wonderful way to celebrate the day of LOVE.

To help you along with the plans, I’ll provide a wonderful meal option and my top 25 Romantic movies.

Here’s a menu that was developed by Chef Dean Sheremet as shown on the CBS show, The Talk.  Incorporating chocolate into each course not only provides delicious flavor, but adds a little touch of the  unexpected which is perfect for a special meal!

Cocoa and Coffee Encrusted Steak with Chocolate Chipotle BBQ Sauce and Frizzled Onions

Cocoa and Coffee Encrusted Steak with Chocolate Chipotle BBQ Sauce and Frizzled Onions

Cocoa and Coffee Encrusted Steak with Chocolate Chipotle BBQ Sauce and Frizzled Onions

2 6-8 ounce steaks of your choice, filet or rib-eye work great

Grapeseed or high-heat cooking oil

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter

1 Sprig of rosemary

1 clove of garlic, smashed

Chocolate chipotle BBQ sauce (recipe below)

Rub

1 Tablespoon black peppercorns

1 Teaspoon kosher salt

1 Teaspoon espresso powder

1 Tablespoon cacao nibs

Frizzled Onions

1 Spanish onion, shaved 1/8 in. thin on a mandoline

2 cups Buttermilk

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 Teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

3 cups grapeseed or high temperature oil

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 500 degrees, place rack in center position and set a half sheet tray with a wire rack inside
  2. Bring your meat out to temper about 30 minutes before you start cooking
  3. Tip the rub ingredients into a mortar and pestle and grind them until the peppercorns and nibs are coarse, not too fine
  4. Add the sliced onions to a container just large enough to hold them and pour the buttermilk over them, making sure they are completely submerged
  5. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and cayenne and set aside
  6. Heat the 3 Cups of oil in a medium saucepan until it reaches 350 degrees
  7. Add 3 Tablespoons oil to heavy skillet set over high heat
  8. Generously coat the meat on all sides with the rub
  9. When the oil is just about to smoke, add the steaks to the pan and cook 2-3 minutes on each side until a nice crust develops
  10. Add the butter, rosemary and garlic to the pan, tip the pan toward you and gently baste the meat in the flavored butter for about 30 seconds
  11. Remove the meat from the pan and place it on the wire rack in the oven
  12. Transfer the steaks to the oven and cook about 4-5 minutes more for medium-rare – flipping the meat halfway through. Check for doneness and allow the meat to rest on a cutting board at least 5 minutes before carving
  13. While the meat is resting remove a handful of the onions and shake off the excess buttermilk, dredge in the flour mix, being careful they don’t clump up
  14. Fry until golden brown, (this happens very quickly) and drain on a plate lined with paper towel
  15. Place the steaks on a plate and top with a heap of frizzled onions and a healthy amount of barbecue sauce

Chocolate chipotle BBQ sauce

1 Tablespoon olive oil

3 Cloves garlic

1 Cup of Chocolate stout (any stout will work fine)

1 Teaspoon Onion powder

1/3 Cup Low sodium soy sauce

2/3 Cup Ketchup

1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce

1 Chipotle in adobo with 1 ½ Tablespoons of sauce, minced

1/3 Cup brown sugar

1 ½ ounces of dark chocolate, chopped

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan and gently cook the garlic until golden brown
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes or until the sauce is very thick
  3. Using a mesh strainer, strain the sauce into a clean jar
  4. The sauce will keep a week in the fridge.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies with Salted Caramel Drizzle 

Whenever I bake I always measure by weight for absolute accuracy. “Chef Dean Sheremet”

I normally use a #40 scoop, which is about 1.5 Tablespoons, but feel free to play with the size.

  • 275 grams All purpose flour
  • 75   grams Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 200 grams Dark Brown Sugar
  • Teaspoon of salt
  • 8 ounces unsalted butter at room temp
  • 100 grams of white sugar
  • 2 large Eggs, at room temperature
  • 340 Grams of Bittersweet Chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of pecan pieces
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

2. In a large bowl, Combine the flour, cocoa powder, Baking soda and baking powder

3. In a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars and salt until light and fluffy about 5 minutes

4. Add eggs one at a time, letting each one incorporate before adding the next

5. Add the vanilla extract

6. Lower the speed of the mixer and add the dry Mixture in 2-3 batches

7. Fold in the chocolate chips and pecans with a spatula

8. Roll the dough into balls and bake for 9 minutes, rotating halfway through

9. Drizzle with the sauce after it has cooled

Caramel Sauce

1 cup sugar

2 Tablespoons corn syrup

¼ cup water

1 cup of heavy cream

½ vanilla bean, split and scraped into the cream

¼ cup Greek yogurt

1 Teaspoon fleur de sel

  1. Heat the sugar, syrup and water in a saucepan until it becomes dark amber in color, about 6-8 minutes or until it registers 350 degrees on an oil thermometer. Taking care to brush the sides down with a wet brush so the sugar doesn’t burn as it bubbles up
  2. Heat the cream and the vanilla bean in a separate pan until just below a simmer (do not allow it to boil over)
  3. Once the sugar has come to 350 degrees, remove the vanilla pod from the cream and gently pour the cream into the sugar mixture. It will bubble like crazy, but keep stirring with a heat safe spatula or wooden spoon
  4. Once the mixture has cooled a bit and is smooth, whisk in the Greek yogurt until completely emulsified
  5. Pour into a large glass jar
  6. Keeps about a week, but it won’t last that long

 

Once the meal is prepared, plate it up, pour a glass of wine and enjoy!!

Bottles of Wine

Now that your stomach is full, it’s time to pop a movie into the DVD/Blu-Ray Player and sit back, relax, share a laugh or even a tear and relish in being with the one you love!  It would be my recommendation to have some snacks available to munch on during the movie(s).  For me that could include, popcorn, Peanut M&M’s or more of the delicious Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookies!

The future of her very livelihood is in doubt. When Kathleen and Joe are not working, they are logged onto their respective computers, where they’ve each met a wonderful friend. No one else has shared-or is even aware of-their intimate, anonymous electronic conversations that begin with the magic words “you’ve got mail.”
