Tatiana + Chris’ Venetian Room Spring Wedding

Tatiana and Chris held a traditional Christian church wedding, following with a reception at one of our favorite Atlanta wedding venues, The Venetian Room.
The bride is a natural beauty and was pure princess perfection on the wedding day. She and Chris shared a sweet first touch before her proud papa walked her down the aisle.
After the couple’s emotional ceremony, it was time to let loose at the reception!  It was glamorous, elegant and FUN!   We love the vibe of Latin weddings- they’re so festive and celebratory!
Diana, the photographer, captured our prayer before the reception so beautifully. We love to pray with our couples on the wedding day and it was a blessing (no pun intended) to see this moment captured.
The maroon and gold combination was bold and dramatic- perfect for The Venetian Room.  The soft white florals tied everything together wonderfully,  adding a romantic touch.
There is no doubt that Tatiana & Chris’ big day was beautiful and that they’re crazy in love. We’re blessed and fortunate to have been able to assist them and wish them all the best in the future.

Journey to “I Do”- Will You?

bikeride-j

June 3rd Andrew & I were in Chattanooga riding bikes around the city, an activity I had been asking to do for quite a while. He wanted to take a trip to see his aunt and uncle close to the time we did the previous year, and I was just like “okay?”

We rode bikes, see the picture, I was so amused and excited I bought a selfie stick. Proceeded to eat lunch with Kevin and Debbie who suggested we go back to Point Park {A place we went on our first trip to Chattanooga and a special park to many members of Andrew’s family.} I quickly denied wanting to take the drive up there due to getting car sick very easily. After much contest on Andrews part, the boy who doesn’t like to argue, up we went.

willyou-jAfter a TWENTY minute walk through the park I was ready to go home, I was hot and had an ITE event to work that evening. Andrew insisted that we take a photo where we took a photo on our first trip, uh okay Andrew… He never likes taking pictures with me.

There we stood in the spot we previously had taken a picture, not even boyfriend and girlfriend at the time. We take the picture and I’m ready to walk away when BOOM Andrew starts to get down on one knee.

I personally remember saying “NO” to what was happening, but there it was. Andrew down on one knee, me crying at a moment I didn’t see coming. No one was around us, just Andrew’s aunt and uncle snapping photos. It was everything I wanted without realizing it.

Pinterest could have ruined June 3rd for me. I thought I wanted some long video proposal. It turns out I wanted just Andrew, telling me he loves me and will love and cherish me the rest of our lives.

Yes1-jLadies, guys are better at things than we give them credit for. Until next time, I leave you with a photo of our engagement.

Marry Me Monday: Meet our Lead Floral Designer

Robin Smith | Lead Floral Designer
Robin Smith | Lead Floral Designer

Robin was born and raised in Atlanta, GA and her love of events stretches back to a childhood filled with accompanying her grandmother to society parties, weddings, and formal dinners.  A passion for performance and theater developed in her early years and she settled in Los Angeles in 2004 to pursue theatrical training.  In Los Angeles, Robin began working in event and wedding floral design collaborating with some of the top names in the event design world for nearly a decade. A move back to the East Coast has provided Robin with the opportunity to design events in the south that are distinctive, innovative, and personal.  She prides herself on crafting one-of-a-kind occasions that are both client focused and timeless.


Get to know Robin 

Favorite holiday: New Years, I love the idea of a ceremonial “reset” button. It means you’re never stuck with a situation you don’t want to be in. It might be tough (or seem impossible sometimes) but you always have the opportunity to do something differently.

Can’t live without: Being creative. I’ll sacrifice a lot of things to make sure I can do something creative every single day. Hidden talent: I trained for voice classically for over 10 years. That may make it not so hidden though. I’m also unexpectedly excellent at Cards Against Humanity. I could eat this daily: In a world where there was no heartburn, cholesterol, or weight gain, I would Korean barbecue every single day.

Typical day-off: It’s not as glamorous as one might think: I get up, make tea (in a vintage orange tea pot), and sit down to write emails and create proposals. My cats will try to thwart work by sitting on the keyboard and my brain will try to thwart it by wanting to be outside. I buckle down and get it done though! An event week is very different: I wake up early early to either retrieve product from the airport (that’s been flown in from New Zealand, South America, Israel, Holland, or California) or get to a local wholesaler to get the best product. That product is then all processed (cut, thorns stripped, leaves removed, etc) and then over a period of several days is coaxed into the perfect bloom and subsequently arranged for an event.

Event Day: Is hectic: loading vehicles, corralling staff, fighting traffic, unloading everything into elevators that don’t want to work or stairs that seem to go on forever. Once everything is in place, we wait a few hours until the event is done, and then we break it all down, pack it all up, and start all over again the next time. It’s completely worth it though: nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing a beautiful bride thrilled with her beautiful room.

Perfect vacation: a mix of relaxation, exotic locale, and adventure seeking. I’d like to go to Bali and stay in one of those huts over the Pacific for a few days and then go on to somewhere like Cambodia to see Angor Wat and trek through the jungles.
