Atlanta Wedding Planner- Sarah & William, Callonwolde Fine Art Center

Stunning doesn’t even begin to describe Sarah & William’s wedding day!  The pure emotion behind a wedding day often takes my breathe away. And no matter how many ceremonies I see, i still get misty eyed thinking about. But my goodness- these two are such a picture perfect couple. So kind, caring and in-love!

I’m a sucker for a clean color pallet.  Sarah & William opted for a classic black and white with pops of silver- which was such a beautiful pairing in the Callonwolde Fine Art Center’s space. I adore this venue!  Between that fabulous grand staircase, crystal & fabric draped ceiling and perfectly placed lighting, it was hard to pick a favorite photo! All the decor elements flowed together effortlessly!

The amazing (and delicious) food was provided by Zest Catering. They did a fantastic job on the display- it was all so delectable! The rose petals made for such a soft touch with the mirrored displays too!

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”.

Real Bride Chat-Post Wedding Reflections

Sarah & William Winter Wonderland

On February 15, 214 William and Sarah said “I Do” at the magnificent Callanwolde Fine Arts at the end of the second snowstorm of 2014 surrounded by their family & friends.   When I met Sarah & William in August 2013 they shared their vision for a winter wedding.  With the help of an amazing design team their vision was executed perfectly.

How different was your original wedding vision from your actual wedding? My vision for the wedding actually was brought to life by amazing planning and a wonderful decorator!  Some things were actually much prettier.   I think it’s very important for a bride to know what she wants and know how to communicate that to her planner 🙂

What surprised you most about the planning process?  Probably the length of time it takes to get it “right”, to research options, and the countless little details you don’t even think about.

What surprised you the most about the wedding day?  Just how beautiful and emotional it was. Also how quickly the night flies by!  Enjoy it because it’s over too quickly!

What was your favorite moment of the wedding day?  Seeing how happy William was all night.  Also seeing that smile on my mom and dad’s and granny’s faces.

Finally, what is your best tip for future brides?  Let’s see-know what you want and hire a planner who you love to work with and who shares your vision too.  Know your budget, research options, try to stay calm, and enjoy every single moment.
