Atlanta Weddings

Jen & Brandon, Roswell River Landing

So I am about a year behind on this, almost exactly. Jen and Brandon celebrated their 1 year wedding anniversary yesterday. I have tons of weddings to blog and catch up on so look out for those in coming weeks but I thought let’s start with them! Happy Anniversary you two!

Jen reached out to me about 3 months before her October wedding to help find a few remaining vendors and pull their budget, planning and vision together. They had many of the fundamentals but needed the expertise to tie it all together.

A few unique elements to their wedding was the request to serve an all Vegan Meal to the guests and the bride needing a make up artist that worked with cruelty free products only. (such a wonderful thing to look out for btw) The Catering they had already secured but we were able to use our resources to find the perfect match for them in Becca Bussert, an Atlanta based Natural Makeup artist that used free beauty products! Jen spent countless hours decorating pieces for her wedding day from spraying leaves and pinecones gold and putting together photo collages to collecting miscellaneous glass jars for her centerpieces.

I particularly loved their three cake selection. Definitely had multiple cakes before that was a thing, you’re welcome Megan Markle.

Lynnette & Greg, Legacy Test Kitchen Ceremony

Lynnette and Greg reached out to me in January to help plan their two day wedding celebration. They'd have an intimate ceremony on Friday evening and a larger celebratory party on Saturday (to come in a later post). When their guest count for Friday came in around 30 people, I was excited to show them a venue I had visited months earlier acquired by Legacy Ventures that was simply perfect for their needs. Lynnette and Greg were set on the Legacy Test Kitchen from their initial visit as it was truly the ideal setting for their intimate ceremony and dinner.  

The evening was truly a beautiful event filled with incredible love and friendship. When we opened the floor for impromptu toasts during dinner, I'm not exaggerating when I say that half of their guests stood up and shared beautiful stories and words of love and support. There was so much personal thought that went into planning from their customized ceremony in which they mixed traditional and Jewish elements to Lynnette dazzling us all with her beautiful vocal talents. 

See all the vendors and some of my favorite photos from the evening below.

Jennifer & David, Roswell River Landing

From my very first meeting with Jennifer and David, I knew they'd be a joy to work with. They both have such an easygoing, genuine way about them that really made it a pleasure getting to know them and helping to guide them through their wedding planning and design.  It's no surprise that they would also have incredible friends and family! 

One of my favorite parts of the wedding day was just before the ceremony when David and his groomsmen prayed together in a tight circle. Come to find out after scrolling through photos, Jennifer and her maids were praying together almost at the exact same time as the men! The love that these friends share for one another was so easy to see throughout the evening in their heartfelt speeches, loving embraces and endless smiles.

So many incredible people same together to ensure their day was just as they had dreamed of from Jennifer's father building their arbor they married under to numerous wedding guests insistent upon staying to help clean up at the end of the evening!
