I do realize that I have been more than bad about posting. But, I have a treat to make up for it. I have pictures from the wedding of some of my favorite clients, Kara and Ian. This wedding was meticulously planned with Kara and her mom Sherry and myself (obviously). As much as I am a designer, I can only do so much and only take so much credit for the style of a wedding. Most of my clients come to me with very specific designs and views for their wedding. My job is to make it happen. Kara and Ian’s wedding was no exception. They knew exactly what they wanted, they just didn’t quite know where to go to get it. Their taste was fantastic and their love of color was refreshing. It’s not that often that a plum-centered wedding is offered to me for June! What a treat for a designer!
I say all that to let you all know that I in no way take credit for every wonderful detail you see on my blog or website. I have always felt like a wedding is the ultimate team effort and that is never so true than in the design aspect. I have been blessed with great clients who have super taste and fantastic personalities to make the planning even better.
Before we get into the eye candy, I must give shout-outs to all my vendor friends who worked so hard on this wedding to make it come together perfectly. Of course, the backdrop of Fountainview Mansion in Auburn gave the basis of our wedding palette. Then, the wonderously talented Kimberly Nelson of Kimberly Nelson Floral Designs did a bang-up job on the florals. As a side note, plum doesn’t happen often in nature in terms of flowers, so she made the decor really fit our scheme without making it look too forced. That is a true testament to her skill. My friend, Nancy Erickson, with Classic Party Rentals in Atlanta provided all our rentals including the super cool clear-top tent for the reception. It gave such a different look to the reception than a traditional white one would have done. Many thanks to her, Arturo (her tent manager) and the rest of the Classic team for taking care of me and my clients so well. I couldn’t forget to mention Ivy Davis of Icing Illusions for the beautiful and very tasty (personal experience) cakes. And, I would be terrible if I didn’t mention Elizabeth of Paper Affair in East Cobb (Atlanta), Ga. She worked harder than anyone to make sure that we got all our printing done and shipped by the wedding. Invitations (pictures of those later), programs, koozies, napkins, etc. She is the picture of professionality and style. And, of course, one of my personal favorites is photographer Robert Smith of FlipFlopFoto.com. His wonderful eye and talent is easy to see. Quite honestly, there are few people that I would rather work a wedding with than him. His fun personality always keeps the wedding party at ease – which only helps the planner :).
Now, on to the eye candy! I will probably have to do this in several posts. But, here we go!
More to come in a bit!
