Mina is a girly girl. She loves flowers, sparkle... and traditions. As a matter of fact, her eyes were sparkly talking about Alex when we first pulled up a chair to dig into her wedding flowers. This was a bride I could totally relate to. These are some of my favorites, as well.

The ceremony was at The Millenium Gate, and that cool morning would be warmed up nicely with the dance party at The Georgian Terrace. Now The Georgian Terrace is full of traditions. It opened in 1911 and is simply legendary. They hosted the premiere of Gone With the Wind, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places,  have celebrated with Presidents, and rocked out with Billy Joel, Fleetwood Mac, and Springsteen. This particular wedding was one  filled with its own glamour and traditions.

One of my favorite stories from her mom was how her aunt, who lives in a lovely building across from The Fox, would watch as brides would stroll down the sidewalk on their wedding day. This day, she would get to see Mina...and trust me she sparkled!Atlanta, you are one amazing host! The architectural details had me captivated.

Mina was no stranger to blooms. Her background in horticulture allowed me to plant a few ideas with some special blooms and vibrant palette to layer with her pomegranate dresses. We knew there had to be some vibrant orchids, Easter lilies, Cherry Brandy roses, deep pink calla lilies, and her grandmother's favorite, gardenias. Love seeing the Easter Eve Hunt, as the flower girl prepared the way for the leading lady.Cindy at Miss Milly's loves sparkle too, and gave dimension to the tables with detailed silver and gold mercury decor.
