Ballroom Beauty

And, we are off to Atlanta for this glam winter wedding. We have worked with these clients on a sister’s wedding, so we were thrilled to be working together again. Being a glam January affair, different fashion staples are able to make their mark. Our groom wears a velvet tuxedo jacket, for example. And, our bride stuns in an ethereal Monique Lhullier confection complete with long sleeves. All of the lovely imagery comes from Aaron and Jillian.

Lettered Olive combines so many components into the printing materials. Like, a custom monogram, metallic papers and inks, photos from the couple’s engagement session, and classic patterns for a bit of dimension.

Invitations are kept formal but with a glamorous feel. Luxurious details include velvet embossed backings, and metallic gold edging.

Keeping with the velvet touches, wedding welcome gifts are presented in velvet bags.

Girls get ready together with gifted matching pj’s. The bride gifts her father a custom embroidered “thank you” handkerchief. Sure to come in handy with the emotion of walking her down the aisle.

The bride carries a lush cascading bouquet in traditional bridal white, with notes of greenery. Roses, peonies, anenomes, and sweet peas create such texture and drama.

The couple chose to do a “first look” prior to the ceremony. So, they were able to capture lots of images with the wedding party and families and not miss part of their party.

Because the ceremony was held under a tent, adjacent to the ballroom, we wanted there to be an outdoor feel to it. A lush floral wall, and oversized planters with varying leaves and branched anchor the alter. Fresh swags of lemon leaf garland add natural elements to the ceiling.

We transform the ballroom by laying carpet over the dark and patterned existing carpet. And, fresh oversized arrangements are used to break up the vast space. Also, creating different seating vignettes helps give definition to the space.

One of our signatures, a large bar, is featured as a centerpiece. This allows guests to access from all sides, and is large enough that no one has to wait for a cocktail.

Details abound, custom lampshades with the wedding monogram, for example.

Although, we love to design and create details for a seated dinner, stations can work better for some events. And, you can still make them detail-worthy. Here, we built a lovely tailored display with the offering pre plated for guests to grab and go. Pretty signage and a custom lamp offer decor.

The 5 tiered gold and white confection from Classic Cheesecakes and Cakes was so pretty it deserved it’s own vignette.

After dancing with guests all night on the custom dance floor, the bride and groom depart to a round of streamer poppers. Happy Anniversary, Grant and Kayla.
