Kelsey & Taylor

Emily and Heather were on-site as Kelsey and Taylor were married on October 4th at Rock Spring Presbyterian Church. Kelsey looked beautiful and timeless in a Judd Wadell gown and a coordinating headband. Her maids were also classic-yet-chic in navy gowns with a unique neckline. The reception was held at Druid Hills Golf Club. Kelsey opted for LOTS of color in the ballroom alternating tonal arrangements in every color imaginable on the guest tables. Guests danced and danced and danced to the sounds of the amazing US Beat Band. What a lovely wedding- Congrats Kelsey & Taylor! Thank you to the always amazing Laura Negri for these images!

Wedding Websites

In this fast-paced, technology dependant world we live in, we need to be sure we are still being polite when approaching modern conveniences such as wedding websites. Here are some tips from the etiquette expert Peggy Post of the Emily Post Institute:

"Your Web page should represent you as a couple. Take the time to develop a design and content that you are both comfortable with – one that reflects your personal aesthetic style.

Electronic RSVPs. If you plan to let people RSVP on your site, simply add a printed sentence at the bottom of your reply card sent with your invitation saying, “You may also reply by way of our wedding Web site: www.happycouple.com.”

Don’t list your Web site on your invitation. This may be tempting, but refrain. There are plenty of other ways to let people know about the site, such as including the Web address on other items enclosed in the invitation packet, such as the response card or maps.

Keep it Simple. A few well-designed pages will speak volumes.

Keep personal info private. Some pre-designed Web templates prompt you to type in personal details such as when you shared your first kiss, what you did on your first date, and so on. This may be good fodder for the bachelor(ette) party, but there is no need to share such intimate moments with your entire guest list – and anyone else who may stumble across your site. Keep your postings tasteful and inclusive.

Don’t put the emphasis on gift registries. It is fine to post links to various on-line gift registries on your home page. This is one of the conveniences of your site. It is important to strike a balance between discretion and a desire to make things easier for your guests. Place such links to the side of the page in modestly sized type.

Don’t overlook your unwired guests. Remember, not everyone has ready access to the Internet. If you know that a certain invited guest is not connected to the Web, be sure to send hard copies of any pertinent information.

After the wedding. You can use your site after the wedding to post wedding and honeymoon pictures, anecdotes and a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to all. This thank you does not replace the individual thank you notes that must be handwritten. "

There are a lot of great sites out there that will guide you through the process of building your own wedsite. These are 2 of our favs:

nearlyweds! is one of the web's top rated wedding websites. We love it because they have teamed up with Wedding Paper Divas so you can customize your wedsite to match your invitation suite.

One of wonderful clients, Melissa, used weddingwindow and I am so impressed with her site! They have a multitude of customizable designs and with your wedsite you have access to save-the-date e-cards, blog capabilities, planning tools and much more!

Winter Wedding Board

I love this board Christine Gallagher created inspired by her new logo. I think it is just perfect for a winter wedding, but the palette could really work anytime of the year! Don't forget to RSVP to Christine's Sip-n-Shop Party next week!

Grace & Nenad

What a beautiful and sweet couple! Grace and Nenad were married on September 20th at the Atlanta History Center's Swan Lawn. Grace's bridesmaids wore vibrant magenta J.Crew dresses and carried matching florals with pops of bright greens. The weather could not have been more perfect as the couple exchanged vows in front of their closest friends and family.

After the touching ceremony, everyone drove to the heart of the city for a fun night at a private restaurant Downtown. Nenad is Serbian and Grace is Korean, so there was a plethora of multi-cultural dishes prepared for dinner as well as a delicious vanilla and chocolate wedding cake. What great perspective in this shot of the cake cutting under that painting!

Guests also enjoyed assorted Serbian fruit-flavored brandy which made for a fun night of dancing. I love this picture of Nenad dancing with Grace's Mother.

It was such a great party, the couple had their rose petal exit and then everyone- including the bride and groom- went back inside and continued the party late into the night...!

Congrats you two! Thank you to Marc Pierre for these stunning images!

Happy Birthday, Demi!

I had so much fun this past week working with LA celebrity floral designer Eric Buterbaugh as the Atlanta contact for Demi Moore's Birthday party last night. We created a gorgeous black and white tablescape complete with Floral Silhouette linens from BBJ, white mini calla lilies cut down into sleek, modern black glass vases of varying sizes {provided by Foxgloves and Ivy} and TONS of votives, also in various heights and sizes. The intimate group noshed on upscale Italian cuisine and drank kosher wine before enjoying a 2 tier black and white red velvet cake from Highland Bakery. And, yes- Mr & Mrs Ashton Kutcher are as beautiful in person as you can imagine- and super sweet.

Update: Demi's party was mentioned in the December 1st Us Weekly Magazine.

Christi & Andisheh

We are going to jump ahead to Christi and Andy's wedding, but we will back track to Grace and Nenad's wedding from September 20th in the coming week or two. Christi and Andy were married in a beautiful Fall wedding at Serenbe on October 4th. What a fun and sweet couple! The gorgeous Fall details included stunning orange florals and rustic decor. After the touching ceremony, guests made their way from the Croquet Lawn to the Pavillion for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Andy had a suprise in store for Christi as they were announced and did their first dance. He had CJ, the karaoke master at Mary's- sing "I'll be there" by the Jackson 5. It was hilarious and Christi was shocked! Everyone enjoyed the family style Southern meal and danced to a wonderfully eclectic playlist put together by Andy and Christi. There was also a photobooth that everyone had a lot of fun playing around in. As the reception came to an end, the remaining guests made their way to a bonfire for s'mores. What a great day! Thank you Stacey Bode for these beautiful images!
