Emma + Andrew: Going To The Chapel

Emma + Andrew: Going To The Chapel

It is so incredibly special for the groom to see his bride for the first time not diluted with the guests. A time when the bride and groom are intimately captured with each other. The surprise is still there, but having that time before blesses the couple with a calmness of emotion just before sharing their vows.

Ok, this was admittedly one of my favorite weddings of the year. We love bringing in some treats and providing our brides with a stellar team... especially on Halloween! How fun?!?

Hotty Toddy, M-I-S-S Ah, S-S Ah P-P Ah!

Hotty Toddy, M-I-S-S Ah, S-S Ah P-P Ah!

I always tell couples that the most important part of their day is the vows. Now, to make the vows more memorable- surround them with beautiful blooms and exquisite fragrance. Add a dash of personality with unique inclusions of family tradition, or in the South sports!

Roses and Orchids and Lilies, Oh my!

Roses and Orchids and Lilies, Oh my!

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.

Taisa +Ryan: The Dance of Marriage

Taisa +Ryan: The Dance of Marriage

Big things come in small packages. Taisa's spunky personality was so fun to work with! She is absolutely full of surprise, smiles and adventure. She would light up talking about her groom, Ryan. One night, we were going to meet to review the big day-- they had a dance lesson. Wait to you see.....The dance.
