{Jessica & Michael @A La Carte Event Pavilion}

Jessica and Michael had so much gorgeousness going on this one took me forever to choose what to tell the story!  With 15 bridesmaids, 15 groomsmen and 250 guests there is a lot to tell:-)  Jessica and her girls got ready at her house, I love the excitement of hair and makeup, and just all the fun moments with the girls.  Michael and the boys got ready at the Doubletree and were just so fun and laid back.  Their little ring bearer Peter was the cutest!  Jessica arrived in a Rolls Royce with her dad and walked down the aisle at Idlewild Baptist Church.  It was a really sweet and personal ceremony and you could just feel how excited they were to finally be married! 

The reception was simply breath taking!!! I don't think there are words to describe how gorgeous the room at A La Carte Pavilion was decorated.  Purple was the color of the day.  Purple bridesmaids dresses, purple chocolate fountain, purple flowers, purple up lighting!  White draping boxed in the dance floor and gathered in the center, showcasing a huge crystal chandelier. Alternating tall glass floral centerpieces and three tiered glass vases with floating candles and florals were the centerpieces. Everything from Jessica's gown, to the linens on the sweet heart table, the stems of the champaign goblets, and the cake topper were all dripped in "bling"!  Jessica and Michael really had a lot of unique details that made it really fun and personal.  They had a sign with their Instagram # to let their guests know to share that when posting photos.  Dinner was broken up into courses and each course had a dance intermission which was such a great idea.  The flower girls had on ballet slippers and the ring bearers changed into tuxedo shirts for the reception.  The dance floor was packed the entire night!  Michael and Jessica were hoisted above the crowd in their chairs for a traditional Italian dance.  The cake was draped in pink roses and their guests enjoyed all kinds of desserts and pastries.  We even snuck away a few pics on the dock out back:-)  An amazing and beautiful time had by all!!  Congrats Jessica and Michael!!!! xoxoxox

{Brooke & Ware @ The Renaissance Vinoy}

Brooke and Ware live in Atlanta, and their family and friends traveled in from all over to celebrate this amazing wedding weekend with them!  It was so fun to be a part of the rehearsal dinner and get to hear a little glimpse of how much everyone loves them and how excited they were for the wedding.  

When I arrived on Saturday morning, Brooke was getting her hair and makeup finished and all the girls dresses were perfectly hung for me.  I LOVE her shoes, I sent a pic to my husband for Christmas present ideas hint hint, he said "I'll just get a can of red spray paint and fix all your shoes" ah!  The funny this is I was working with Alex, from Voila Cinematic and he said the same thing!  Brooke's dress is from the Say Yes to the Dress store in Atlanta.  It was made of beautiful lace with little off the shoulder sleeves and a crystal sash.  When Sylense was out with the boys in Vinoy park, they met another bride also getting married.  They both had very special gifts for a each other that the maid of honor delivered to the boys, and the best man to the girls.  Ware was totally in shock that Brooke surprised him with Master's tickets, I still don't know if he believes it:-)  Brooke was equally shocked with the letter her wrote her and the perfect Michelle watch.  

We were on the 4th floor overlooking the tea garden and we could watch as they were building the florals.  They actually took off the top of the fountain and replaced it with gorgeous yellow and white florals.  Ware teared up as he saw Brooke appear with her dad.  The grand ballroom was draped with tall florals in mercury glass.  From the second everyone entered, the Headliners rocked the night away!  I think the biggest surprise of the evening was that Brooke's dad Gary, actually made a star Trek film that he starred in, which then went into a sweet slideshow that played during the father daughter dance.  I have to say, Gary, that was pretty awesome.  Brooke and Ware met at Auburn, so there was an Auburn cake and pom poms for all, and for their exit!  There are so many more fun moments I could share but I'll let you see the pics!  Congrats Brooke and Ware!!! xoxoxo

{Rachel + Pete @Marriott Waterside}

Rachel and Pete's 600 closests friends celebrated their amazing wedding day with them!  How do you transport a bride, groom, 14 bridesmaids and 12 groomsmen?  A 40 passenger limo bus of course!!  I mean, seriously everything was stunning starting with Rachel.  LOVE her gown and gold sparkly shoes.  They had agreed not to get each other gifts for the wedding, but Pete couldn't help himself and I think he was forgiven after Rachel opened beautiful diamond earrings and sweet sweet card.  They have known each other and their families for a long time, they met over 12 years ago in middle school:-)  Not only that, but they have a very interesting family history as well.  They had a table not just with lots of photos of their relatives but facts about each one.  I'll share some becuase I think it is so cool!  Rachel and Pete's parents have the exact same wedding anniversary, April 25th.  Pete proposed to Rachel under the Eiffel Tower in Vegas, and my favorite fun fact is that Rachel's great grandparents were maid of honor and best man in Pete's grandmother's cousins wedding.  They have a priceless photo of them together from the wedding.  They are huge sports fans, we actually did their engagement session at the Ray's stadium and groom's cakes were a Rays hat and Bucs helmet!  During the reception we went out by the waterfront and took some amazing photos of them with lights and on the bridge they are some of my favorites.  Red uplighting with tall lit center pieces with gold chivari's, textured linens, straberry kissed champagne, and the most fantastic sweets table.  The white chocolate popcorn was to die for!  Rachel gave a special toast to her friend Stephanie who helped her with all her wedding details every step of the way.  600 people and DJ Papi = a blast!  They changed into their get away outfits to do a waterside exit on Bada Bing!  It was perfect.  Congrats Pete and Rachel!!! xoxoxo
