Nikki's destination wedding; Buckhead Atlanta.
Friends and family flew in from San Fransisco, North Carolina, Louisiana, and every corner of the US to observe this fabulous wedding at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Atlanta.
Nikki, a California native and executive with Colgate-Palmolive marries Southern Gentleman, Lance, a distinguished writer, and educator in North Carolina.
After nine months of planning, hundreds of emails, and much tweaking the day was finally here. Shelly Clark, the wedding coordinator, was magnificent.
At six o'clock in the afternoon, Nikki, walked down the aisle atop a gold aisle runner lined with lush gold, burnt orange, tropicana and pink petals.
Clarinet vases hosting green antique hydrangea and tall (orange) flowering twiggies were placed on our exciting, new, custom made limestone colored marbleized pedestals. Two at the ends of the aisle and two were placed at the altar.
We placed sheer ivory pipe and drape as a backdrop to the altar and accented with yards and yards of gold, pintuck taffeta.
Her bridesmaids boasted sand colored dresses and chocolate shoes. Nikki loved our accessories in the chocolate collection, and despite the rain, all her stars were lined up just perfectly. Nikki was the first to use our new line of Lilian Rose sand colored accessories in the chocolate collection, an absolutely perfect match. Be sure to visit our accessory boutique to see our gorgeous collection.
The reception was a "Wow"
I was elated when Nikki came to me at the end of the night and expressed her joy with our services. After all, it is our goal to push the lid of gorgeousness beyond the expectation of our bride and her guests.
We did a pipe and drape backdrop, dressed the tables in chocolate satin, ivory satin napkins, gold charges and three sets of floral designs including manzanitas covered in orchids, sunken tulips and kissing balls, and tall flowering branches.
The highlight of the night, however, was our white leather lounge. We set up three small white Ottomans and 2 lounge settees, with a larger ottaman in the center, which doubled as a coffee table of sorts. Our 25 branch treelabra and 4 soft white uplights added magic to the area, and against 4 palm trees, served as a fantastic social spot for the 'minglers'. Four cocktail tables and a few highboys covered in suede, completed the space making it the most popular area of the ballroom. I was sooo excited that this was such a hit that I forgot to take pictures, but will definitely attempt to get some from the photographer, Ron Morgan.
Here are some pictures.
