Cameron and Jeremy's FUN wedding at American Spirit Works.Read more
Now that our 2015 wedding season has come to a close, we are starting to reflect on all of the wonderful couples we've gotten to know this year. We are feeling so thankful for all of our lovely clients and the incredible weddings we've had a chance to be a part of!
On that note, we give you Ali & Andrew's highlight film from the ever talented videographer, Paul Wages.
A little description of the day from Paul:
Allison and Andrew started off their wedding day at a charming little church, full of smiles and loving glances. It was a full house, but there was a delightful feeling of intimacy between the couple and their guests. From there, folks travelled to the gorgeous Piedmont Driving Club for the reception, where the live band rocked everybody so good that folks stayed to shake it down ’til long after the cows came home.
Thank you to Ali & Andrew for having us as part of your amazing wedding!

Instead of traditional table numbers, Carly created these using pages from Pride & Prejudice. And every table also included a stack of books, along table runners hand sewn by Carly's mom.
It would be nearly impossible to find a wedding detail more fun than these cocktail napkins. Make sure you read each one!
Did you catch the second pair of shoes for Melanie? Who wouldn't love sparkly sneakers?
After learning about the venue's history as a factory, Melanie's family made the connection that her grandfather had worked there when he was young. To tie this detail into the evening, Melanie and Justin provided all of their guests with work punch cards so they could "clock in" to the reception using a vintage time stamper provided by Krista with Blue Eyed Yonder (who I think can now confidently say that she can find literally any vintage touch you are looking for!).
Thanks to Melanie & Justin! We loved being a part of your day!
Jenn and her bridesmaids started their day at The Millenium Gate near Atlantic Station for some photos. We loved this mismatched look for the girls -- everyone got to choose their own dress, and it all came together so nicely!
Jenn and Kevin opted not to see each other before their ceremony, which made her entrance a little extra special.
The greenery, string lights, and candle installation on the stairs all made the ceremony space so dramatic and beautiful.
After an amazing dance party (including an impromptu chair lifting!)....
Jenn and Kevin made their getaway in style.

Isn't the look on her face just priceless? Her flawless makeup and hair are by the ever-talented Louie Lieberman of Lux Studio.
Side note: if you need to buy or sell a house, Heather is your girl!
Look out for Heather & Andrew’s Wedding, Part II up on the blog soon. There were so many amazing details in this wedding, we couldn’t fit them all in one post!
Here are are a few more photos of this sweet couple for now:
Besides blending their styles, the couple also blended their cultures. The rehearsal dinner was held at Alma Cocina to represent C.S.'s Mexican heritage, while the wedding cuisine from Endive was purely southern -- a nod to Jen's South Carolina roots. The ceremony was performed by the bride's brother, and translated into Spanish by the groom's sister. Guitarist Brandon Crocker played some great American classics for the ceremony and cocktail hour, while DJ Eric Anthony brought along some Latin favorites to spice up the reception.
They also brought in some of their favorite things including carefully chosen wine selections served from the venue's gorgeous wooden bar (adorned by ever talented Bloomin' Bouquets), a special chocolate cake made with olive oil and sea salt, the couple's favorite dessert from La Tavola Trattoria, and specialty cupcake flavors like creme de menthe and samoas, created by Amy from Sugar Moon Bake Shop.
Planning a wedding long distance is always tricky. But when you live out of town, both work full time, and are both pursuing master's degrees, well that's just plain nuts! This is exactly what Blair & Bryan did.
The couple lives in Washington, DC, but they had a perfect southern wedding at one of my favorite venues, The Georgian Terrace Hotel.
The couple chose not to see each other before their ceremony, which took place at Second Ponce de Leon Baptist Church. So their photos afterwards on the church grounds were a little extra special.
