Farrah + Jimmy’s Millennium Gate Museum Wedding


Farrah and Jimmy’s Millennium Gate Museum wedding was a glamorous affair with just a tiny boho vibe.  These two are incredible individuals and together, they’re a dynamic, passionate pair!

Farrah was absolutely giddy all day- we’d catch glimpses of her just dancing & twirling, smiling ear-to-ear. Her dress fit her like a glove (so sexy & feminine)!Her bridal party was a BLAST too! We love the mauve color of the gowns and her bridesman’s crisp navy suit.

The outdoor ceremony on the rooftop was so emotional! As Jimmy wiped tears from Farrah’s eyes during the ceremony, we melted! The weather was perfect, the view was amazing and it was perfectly intimate. How about that adorable ring bearer & flower girl too?!

The decor choices were fabulous- the florals knocked our socks off! Farrah’s burgundy, mauve, pink and greenery bouquet was a boho dream come true. We fawned, we’ll admit it! The same florals were carried through in the reception design, petite bud vases and small sprigs of flowers sat atop garland, beneath a clear tent.  We love clear tents because you can dine beneath the stars, without a worry of the weather!

We’re so happy for these two!

If you missed our other favorite images on Instagram, head on over to our profile and check those out too!

We LOVE that Farrah has a bride’s man. When a bride includes the *people* that are most important to her in the bridal party, she’s sure to be happier! Sometimes ‘tradition’ is meant to be broken.

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)!

5 Steps to Organizing your Wedding Brain {Plus 3 articles from other wedding pros}







Happy Leap Day! Welcome to our Leap Blog!

Enjoy the great ideas, tips and inspirations as you Leap along through the blog leap.  You may just be starting the blog leap or may have come from Katie Snyder at Katie Snyder Photography.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you make sure to see and learn from all of the articles featured here today.

Five tips to organizing your Wedding Brain

Congratulations! You have found the man of your dreams and he asked you to be his wife! Now what? Where do you start? Bridal Show? Wedding Magazines? Pinterest? With so many planing options out there today it takesIt is hard to stay focus on the reason why your getting married with a never ending task list.

Step #1 Show me the Money!
Long are the days of tradition when the “Bride’s family paid for the wedding”. Talking about money is never easy, but it is crucial step in the wedding planning process. Sit down with both sets of parents and discuss the budget and your vision. This will help you narrow down your choices of venues Take care of this ASAP so that you can start planning for the wedding you can afford.

Step #2 Guest who’s coming to dinner?

Your guest list will be dictated by your budget and will assist you in choosing your venue and vendors.


When creating your guest list think about who in your lives you would want present on your Wedding Day.  Create a must invite list first with your closet family and friends.  These are the people that mean the most to you.  Cut guest that you haven’t spoken with in over a year, eliminate co-workers, second cousins, etc.  Everyone will want to be invited but not everyone is a VIP on this day.

Step #3-So, When is the big day?
The number one question after you tell your engagement story is When’s the big day? Finding the perfect wedding date can be overwhelming. Here are a few key things to consider: season and time, budget, destination, schedules, venue and vendor availability. Then choose 2-3 dates in case your preferred dates are not available.

Step #4  What’s your wedding style?
Step away from Pinboard! With so many beautiful weddings on Pinterest how do you know your wedding style?HELBR309_

Are you Classic? City Chic? Vintage? or Rustic? Your wedding style should be determined by your personal styles; from the way you dress, decorate your home to your passions. Who you are couple should be visible in the details throughout your wedding day

Step #5  Choose your Dream Team
View More: the right vendor can be tricky, so where do you start? Referrals are the best research you can do.  Talk to your friends (especially if they’ve been married recently). Personal referrals are the best. Browse through local blogs, magazines & wedding directories for advice and inspiration. Once you have researched and narrowed down your choices make an appointment with at least two vendors per category to help you compare. It is very important that you not only like their portfolio you also like them on a personal level. You need to have a team that you trust with the most important day of your life!

Bonus-Book your Vendors in the following order:

Ceremony Location
Reception Venue
Wedding Planner
Catering if not provided by the venue
Designer {Floral & Decor}

I hope these steps will help ease your “Wedding Brain” and get you focused. Remember to take some time out from planning to stay connected to your fiance and remember the reason why your getting married.

Wedding Wednesday-Journey to “I Do”

Welcome to Wedding Wednesday, my name is Krystal!

Lane1I’m currently engaged to the wonderful Andrew Lane, and together we are planning a wedding on a tight budget. Don’t cringe too quickly; we’re going to have an amazing wedding. There are many reasons brides and grooms are frightened by the concept of a tight budget.

Over the next 7-ish months I invite you to follow Andrew and I’s journey to becoming husband and wife. Each week we will address different points of the wedding, what speed bumps we hit and what                                                                       we enjoy the most in this special time.

Lane2I was born in sunny Los Angeles, transplanted to Augusta, and currently live in the beautiful surrounding area of Atlanta. I recently graduated with my Bachelors in Public relations from Kennesaw State University. On top of trying to plan my wedding, I am a twenty three year old trying to figure out what I’m doing with my life. {I’m juggling a lot right now, but having Andrew makes it all so much better!} I work part time at a little consignment boutique in Smyrna, and assist Irene with a wide spread set of things.

Lane3Andrew was born in Rome, Georgia went to school in Alabama, and is currently a music teacher in Douglassville, Georgia. Every day Mr. Lane puts on a smile and teaches children kindergarten through fifth grade to love music, yes it’s very cute to watch. He enjoys doing things most guys do, he plays the bass at our church, is on two fantasy football teams, and likes to watch pretty much any sport.

More important than anything we enjoy doing as couple, we enjoy spending time together. Honestly, we both don’t make a lot of money right now, we date cheap. Before getting engaged Andrew and I spent numerous dates eating Costco hotdogs and walking the store imagining what we would own if we were married. Insert stores such as Target, Bed Bath and Beyond and Ikea and well you’ve just learned every store we love.

Being in love is hard, being engaged is harder. This season in our life we say is just awkward. I’m no longer just the girlfriend, but I’m also not his wife (which I am so excited to be). Living in limbo is weird, but it has taught me a lot about myself already, and we’ve only been engaged for three months.

I cannot promise this blog will be perfect on how to plan a wedding, but I do promise we’ll be honest with you. We’ve already knocked out our venue; we actually did that 6 days after getting engaged. But we still have a lot to do and a lot to decide/compromise on as a couple.

Next week I would like to talk to you about our engagement, what it’s like for girls to have expectations about rings and some grand engagement. The proposal is such a small step in the story you and your love one will tell, why get caught up in the hopes of having what you’ve seen on Facebook videos? Your story is unique, as your engagement should be.

Every couple has a budget that should be respected.  We work with couples with a variety of budgets.  If you need assistance figuring your budget out schedule a complimentary consultation with an ITE Member today!

One of my favorite wedding ideas…First Look









Welcome to our April Blog Hop!
This month we are focusing on our favorite wedding ideas to help you in the process of planning your wedding or event. Get ready for some great ideas, inspiration and how to as you move along through the blog hop.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Natalie Bradley at Natalie Bradley Events on Natalie’s Blog Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you make sure to see and learn from all of the articles featured here today.

A Fathers First Look…

No words can express the emotions and reactions that moment the Groom sees his Bride for the first time on their wedding day.  The “First Look” is when the Bride & Groom see each other for the first time pre-ceremony.

The “First Look”is not only reserved for the Bride & Groom.  One of my favorite moments of the day is the moment a Father first sees his daughter in her wedding gown, it is a very memorable moment.

Though a wedding day is focused on the bride and groom, we love to set aside a few minutes before the couples first look or processional where we give Dad the Brides bouquet and send him into her room (Shh, don’t tell Dad, it makes for the best moment & photos).

Check out a few of our favorite “Father’s First Looks”.
