Whether you are at Monday Night Brewery for a couple of beers or a lot of beers – you are bound to have an incredible time! Throw in food catered by Sun in My Belly, a cake by Sweet Cheats and popsicles from King of Pops and you have yourself a perfect combination! We absolutely loved working with Allison and Kevin and are excited to share their special day with you!

A little message from our beautiful bride:

“We wanted our wedding to be “fun casual chic,” my fiance is a big beer nerd, so we decided to get married at Monday Night Brewery in West Midtown, Atlanta. We loved the strung lights on the patio, which continued inside the venue, to give the whole space a glow as we were getting married and partying into the night. Juli made our wedding amazing, she completely captured my vision of a casual chic night by creating ombre flowers, full/fluffy/low centerpieces, and even bringing in vintage salad and dessert plates to adorn the tables while the guests filed into the reception. Juli also made a ribbon backdrop for us to get married in front of, which enhanced the foliage outdoors and gave us a pop of color. I loved how she accentuated details within the reception space, such as making a mustache and SMOOCH talking bubble on the fireplace mantle, and adding an “MMM HMM” sign above our cakes. All of these details were perfect, and our guests commented on how great they were.

Working with Juli and her team truly made our wedding better than we envisioned. It was like she jumped into my brain, figured out exactly what I wanted, and made it come to life. All of our guests complimented the attention to detail that was paid, and Juli is the reason for that compliment. ”

Lindsay and Ben are two of a kind – sharing a love for the city and for the outdoors. When Ben proposed (via Scrabble board!), Lindsay couldn’t have been happier. Together, over the duration of their engagement, they made 1000 paper cranes out of brightly colored paper – which they later asked me to use in their wedding décor, along with mercury glass and a limited selection of flowers. Flowers are my favorite, of course, but sometimes choosing just the right florals and keeping them small makes for a big effect!

Since Lindsay and Ben were after a city wedding, we agreed to keep the colors very simple – a neutral background (gray) with pops of bright yellow – and of course their beautiful cranes! Summerour provided the perfect backdrop for this wedding, bringing a sense of the sleek and modern to Lindsay and Ben’s day.

I hope you’ll love all the special touches in Lindsay and Ben’s wedding as much as I do!

Get ready for one of the sweetest weddings you will ever see! Lauren and Kyle share that rare type of love that even strangers can feel. A love that lasts a lifetime; that radiates through their wedding photographs by Andy Brophy.

When I first met Lauren I quickly found out that she was very family oriented. Very rarely does a bride come to a consultation with both of her parents and Lauren did. I could tell right away that they were not only super close, but kind and gracious as well. They wanted Lauren’s wedding to be a memorable night for all family members and friends to enjoy.

Lauren and Kyle drew most of their inspiration from nature. We started with an organic concept full of greenery and neutral colors and added in a little touch of glam with mixed metallics.

I know you will see the authenticity and overwhelming love in these photos- just like Lauren and her sweet family.

From the first time I met Lindsay I knew her wedding would be unforgettable. Playing with color is one of the highlights of this crazy job, and when Lindsay told me that she wanted a bright, colorful celebration – one not limited to a specific color palette – I was thrilled. That she trusted me and gave me a lot of free reign to create color explosions and awesome handmade pieces was even better!

Beyond colors, Lindsay and Ryan’s wedding was chocked full of personalized details. There were golden dinosaurs, a dog cake topper, rainbow sprinkled doughnuts, bright paper flowers in trees, and metallic arrows. Lindsay also designed (check out her website here) all the printed paper goods including the menus and the adorable ‘yay!’ signs her guests waved throughout the evening.

It truly felt like we were playing during the entire process and contributed to why I have such a crush on this wedding.

Brace yourself. You’re about to crush too ;)

We all know that person who is never without a book in hand – that person whose entire house looks like one giant used bookstore, where every table, shelf, and random chair is loaded with a stack of novels. Diana’s groom, David, is that person – and it’s the thing Diana loves most about him. She once even saw him pull out a book from his suit jacket during a break in the synagogue service!

Diana loved that aspect of David so much that she wanted to feature it prominently in their wedding. She asked for a modern, clean white wedding themed around books to show their shared passion and love for one another. Together, we worked hard to create a relaxed and homey atmosphere that gave the feel of curling up in the corner with a good book and great friends, while still keeping that modern look. Their chuppah (Diana’s favorite piece) was decorated entirely with printed pages, and each table at their reception featured similar pages and stacks of books as the main centerpiece. We even incorporated some of the pages into the flower arrangements!

We hope you’re inspired by these images, and by the love that David and Diana have for each other and their books.

It’s easy to think that a neutral color palette equals a boring wedding. White, tan, ivory, and gray don’t seem like exciting colors at first glance. But design-wise it’s totally possible to do amazing things with colors that seem so ordinary. With a varied color palette, textures can be a hard sell – but with muted, neutral tones, texture creates beauty and catches the eye in a similar way that bright colors do.

Jordan came to me looking for a combination of texture and neutrals I knew from the start would be anything but boring! She wanted wild and funky textures in both her flowers and her decor – a romantic, mismatched look that embodied Jordan’s personal style.

You can see the layers of texture in Jordan’s flowers especially with lots of succulents, mosses, and the ultimate textured flower – a king protea. Jordan’s father made all of the wooden boxes that held the flowers on the tables – which were so lovely and added that perfect personal touch. Topped off with her statement dress, this wedding was organic, romantic, and FULL of whimsical texture!

They say necessity is the mother of invention – and Anu and Joe proved to be a very inventive couple! When their plans for a destination wedding to Mexico fell through, they decided to create the destination experience for family and friends from Texas – all while staying right here in Atlanta.

Built around the simple and sleek space of Mason Murer Art Gallery, Anu asked me to create a design that was warm, eclectic, romantic, and very modern. Her chosen colors of navy and coral – and the addition of some soft, romantic flowers in gentler hues – made for a riot of color inside the gallery’s contemporary white space. Despite their wedding’s modern look, it was important to Anu and Joe to feature some aspects from their Indian roots – so the bridesmaids wore lovely navy outfits traditional in India.

I absolutely adore Indian weddings for their vibrancy and sparkle, and Anu and Joe’s was no exception. It was the perfect mix of modern and tradition – with a side of Indian flair.

Namaste and enjoy these dreamy images from Heidi of Our Labor of Love!

Some people were born to be Anglophiles – and I’m one of them! I adore anything British or Union Jack-related. Throw in some adorable Teddy Bears and I’m so there! (Little known fact: I collect Teddy Bears and have since I was a baby!) So, I jumped on the opportunity to do a photo shoot with some fabulous vendors – Amanda of Atlanta Event Studio, Callie of Achor & Eden Photography, and Krista of Blue Eyed Yonder. It was an added bonus when I found out that we were actually designing a surprise baby shower! We covered everything in Union Jacks and Union Jack colors and set up Paddington Bear as our baby-to-be’s future companion. Topped with a spot of tea, this super sweet shower was an elegant and adorable way to celebrate future Mom!

It was a gray and drizzly day when the Not-Wedding began. Tucked away on a twisting side road, the Mason Murer Art Gallery’s parking lot was awash with people. I joined them almost as soon as I got out of my car, running to help Juli carry in box after box of vases, paper backdrops, flowers, and supplies.

I’ve participated in a photo shoot before, but never one like this: a sprawling bridal show alternative where multiple photographers, designers, caterers, and more all put their skills on display by creating a fake wedding. The usual photo shoot experience is hectic enough, but it gets even crazier when the public is going to be involved. Yet it was a relatively organized chaos, designers and photographers bantering back and forth as we all rushed to make plans for the day into a reality.

As both observer and on-call minion, it was fascinating to watch the event come together before my eyes. While tying small containers of flowers to the chairs lining the proverbial aisle and shouting to Juli about whether her lovely ceremony backdrops were hanging dead center, I watched as vendors ran left and right, gathering all their supplies and snapping photos of the preparations.  Chairs were brought in, tablescapes arranged, boutonnieres and bouquets handed off to photogenic groomsmen and bridesmaids.

In all the madness it can sometimes be hard to see the end goal. But by the time things began to settle down, I could take a step back and see how gorgeous and cohesive everything looked. It’s an event I’m proud to have participated in, even if my role was small: and it’s an event I hope continues for years to come.

Katie is a girl of simple, elegant, straightforward tastes. She knows exactly what she wants and how she wants it. So when she came to me to design her wedding, she had a very clear vision for her wedding day. Katie was looking for classic, modern elegance drenched with her favorite color, yellow, and accented with navy blue and light gray.

I was designing her wedding, though, so not everything was going to be clean lines and simple patterns! Like Katie herself, we agreed there should be just a touch of whimsy. We made that happen with the magic of paper!

Paper is a fantastic, cheap, and beautiful alternative to flowers when your budget is a little tight. Don’t get me wrong – flowers are terribly important (*ahem* Check out her bouquet chocked FULL of yellow ranunculus), but really beautiful paper can create amazing texture as well.

We designed a classic, cohesive ceremony and reception look with handmade paper puffs as the focal point for the ceremony and accenting each table. Paired with larger suspended paper puffs and paper lanterns hung from the ceiling, these little details made her special day really pop – a fun, unique touch against an otherwise simple, straightforward backdrop!
