Rebecca + Lewis’ Elegant, Industrial Terminus 330 Wedding

Rebecca and Lewis’ Terminus 330 wedding in mid-town Atlanta was a BLAST! These two are firecrackers and were a joy to work with.

The decor included tons of greenery, candlelight, and gold.  It was understated romance and perfect for Terminus’ industrial chic venue.

Guest favors were a collection of sweet treats- which is always a popular option to cap off the night (you really can’t go wrong with a consumable favor).

The night concluded with a visit from the Clemson Mascot and Terminus’ signature confetti cannon (which was one of the couple’s favorite parts of the night)!

CUPCAKES

Ah, cupcakes…a cute miniature alternative to traditional cake! Cupcakes are easier for your guests to grab and go, plus it looks way more adorable as a dessert display table, wouldn’t you agree?

DONUTS

Donuts are definitely a wedding trend lately! The crazier the toppings, the better! Offer an assortment of traditional and fun flavors so guests can enjoy choosing which one they want to try.

PIES

Perfect for fall weddings, pies are a wonderful rustic dessert option. If you’re not a fan of whole pies, try mini pies or pie pops instead!

Make IT Happen: Wedding Timeline Tips

Among all of the checklists, to-dos and other wedding details, the wedding day timeline is probably one of the most important! While the timeline is more of a guideline of how the day will go, it’s extremely helpful to keep things on track for both your vendors and your guests. Here are a few things to keep in mind when creating a timeline for your wedding day.

Photography Schedule

It’s important to consider when and where you will be taking photos throughout the day. If you are willing to see each other before the ceremony, then you have more time during cocktail hour to mingle with your guests, which is what I recommend. It is becoming more popular to do a “first look” session, followed by wedding party and family photos prior to the wedding ceremony. Otherwise, if you prefer to not see each other before the ceremony, it is recommended to have an extended cocktail hour (1.5-2 hours) so you have enough time to take photos and still enjoy a portion of your social hour before the reception begins!

Receiving Line

A receiving line can occur in a few different formats. You can dismiss guests by row (after the recessional), where you greet each guest before they exit the ceremony. Your parents can also dismiss guests by row, where the guests then greet you outside of the ceremony venue. Another more casual option is to greet guests during your cocktail hour, if you aren’t offsite taking photos. Regardless, plan for about 30 minutes per 100 guests for a receiving line when creating your wedding day timeline.

Food Timing

The timing of wedding food service ultimately depends on the style of service and how many guests you have. Common food service options include plated, buffet and family style. For plated and family style service, it takes about 30-40 minutes to serve each course. Buffets take roughly 30 minutes per 100 guests, and I recommend double-sided buffets to ensure a speedy experience!

Nisha + Jamie’s Multicultural Wedding, Atlanta History Center

It’s been a few months since Nisha  & Jamie’s Spring wedding (March), and we can’t help ourselves from sharing their beautiful wedding day! It was a dream working with these two lovebirds. By hosting a more traditional American ceremony and an Indian reception, the couple was able to blend the two culturally diverse wedding day elements beautifully. We love multicultural weddings and find that they’re very memorable. The decor is outstanding, the celebration joyous and the family extremely welcoming!

The guest list is usually rather large, so finding the right venue can be a challenge. The Atlanta History Center fits the bill perfectly! The ballroom is gorgeous, and the grounds make for great photo ops!

Hanna+Brett’s Primrose Cottage Wedding Day

Hanna + Brett’s hosted a timelessly beautiful and romantic wedding day at Primrose Cottage. Primrose is an Antebellum Mansion in Roswell, GA. It’s in the heart of the historic district and offers a gorgeous outdoor area (so green) and indoor ballroom with floor to ceiling windows (swoon).

The couple hosted an intimate indoor ceremony (because of the rain)- which turned our SO well. The ceremony arbor was covered in lush florals and they couple said I-DO with so much love in the room! Their reception immediately followed in the cottage’s main ballroom. They selected blush pink, gold, white and navy blue for their decor.  It was so pretty against the light wood tones and bright light that Primrose offers -it has so much character!

It was a pleasure to help this couple create their dream day. We loved working with them and wish them ALL THE BEST!

Atlanta Wedding Planner- Rubymel and Cutler’s Callanwolde Fine Art Center

In this traditional Jewish ceremony, Rubymel and Cutler tied the knot at the Callanwolde Fine Art Center. During the beautiful outdoor ceremony, The chuppah soft pink fabric draping swayed gently in the breeze while these two said their vows. After signing the ketubah (marriage contract) and the breaking of a glass,  this gorgeous couple became husband and wife!

Following the ceremony was an elegant reception,We loved the bright, yet soft pink and white colors, paired with the dramatic and rich colors of the Callanwolde.

We had a great time working for Rubymel and Cutler. They had such sweet demeanors and they are both super smart. They made great choices with their vendors and were thoughtful about their wedding day flow. They threw a great party and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves!

Isn’t Rubymel such a bombshell too? Her lace mermaid gown was a stunner – such a perfect fit for her!

We so enjoyed your laughter and love, and are honored to be part of the big day. Wishing you two all the best!

Atlanta Wedding Planner – Angela & Rich’s Tavern at Piedmont Park Wedding

I’m a sucker for black and white weddings. Add a little pop of color and I’m sold!  Angela and Rich had a low-key, but elegant and tasteful gathering. They wanted something intimate that involved friends and family as much as possible.

They were married at the Tavern at Piedmont Park- Angela’s princess ball gown was perfect for her- and Rich’s face when he saw her was priceless! They had a traditional ceremony with a unity candle ceremony.

Our bride carried a simple bouquet of white roses, wax flower and pretty green foliage tied in gold lace ribbon. Bridesmaids carried a single white rose, wrapped in the same gold lace ribbon. We created a simple centerpiece of white flowers and foliage, some of which were silks.  We added granny smith apples for a pop of beautiful green on the black napkins.

The couple danced the night away to the beat of their favorite club DJ- who happened to be a family friend. Gigi’s Cupcakes provided the delicious cake- which was perfect for face smashing. Ha!

Thank you, Angela and Rich, for inviting us to be part of your sweet, intimate wedding day!

Atlanta Wedding Planner – Amy & Matt’s The Brickyard Wedding

We obviously love weddings. Each one unique in its own way. But we have a special place in our heart for a church wedding! First Presbyterian Church is full of classic southern architecture. The white paneling and pews are a fabulous contrast to the rich mahogany wood details. With a pop of coral paint, it is truly beautiful.

Amy opted for a full Satin ballgown Satin & Crystal embellishments and with button details on the back. She adorned herself with crystals and pearls.

Her bridesmaids wore cute aqua chiffon cocktail dresses and all of the ladies carried bouquets of white roses, green cymbidium orchids and hydrangea.

Amy and Matt have a little spunk to their relationship- so this red and white T-bird Ford fit Amy & Matt’s personalities to a T (no pun intended!)! This one actually belongs to Matt’s dad. An old classic car is a great getaway vehicle and makes for such a neat photo!

A father’s first-look at his daughter has just as much impact on me as a the groom’s first look.  A father seeing his little girl all grown up and beginning her journey as a wife is monumental. If you don’t opt for a first look with your groom, we highly recommend a first look photo with your father!

Amy’s father was actually one of the ceremony officiants! He did a wonderfully sentimental and romantic reading for the newlyweds after walking his little girl down the aisle.

After the ceremony and photos, the celebration continued at the Brickyard. The Brickyard is a great industrial chic venue- one of the many reasons we love working there is that it makes a great canvas for any decor. Dressed up or down, it looks great!

Guests dined on “breakfast for dinner” by Carriage House Catering and danced the night away thanks to Fonix Entertainment. And let’s not forget the dessert! Delectable dessert provided by Miss Mamie’s Bakery!
