Our Spring Fantasy Open House twas a day to Remember and thanks to our Wonderful Sponsors, was a complete success. By Friday evening we had over 90 RSVP's due to the hard work of our media sponsors including Atlantan Brides Magazine, Atlanta Bridal, and Atlanta Occasions. We were so happy to see Lei, the owner of Atlanta Bridal, one of Atlanta's top wedding sites and Heather of Atlanta Occasions Wedding Website and Magazine.
Many of our existing brides paid us a visit and got a preview of many of the elements that were being incoporated in their wedding decor. Even more brides stopped by to see the extent of our fabulous offerings and to be inspired.
International photographers, Javon and Dawn Longieliere, back from weddings in Europe, showed off their fabulous work and mingled with our guests, educating them on bridal portraiture.
Jeriene Grimes, our ettiquette queen , gave one on one advice on planning 'disaster proof' events, and Christine conducted Fantasy Warehouse tours and shared design ideas with several brides.
And the food...was sooo good. Delightful Biteful really 'overdid' themselves. The food and the service was more than fantastic.
The cake artisans Celso' Cakes and Sugar Plum Visions were the essence of the original Candy Man. (Created by Sammy Davis Jnr) ......'Everything they make is satisfying and delicious...... talk about your childhood wishes, you can even eat the dishes'.
The stationary provided Luxe Expressions was simply 'off the chain'. Many people were so impressed with her fantastic creations which perfectly complimented our designscapes.
The Hilton Marietta Resort came through for us with flying colors contributing a wonderful door prize which was accepted by Bride Dr. Kimberly Thornton who will be getting married this fall at Chateau Elan. Kim won a romantic weekend for two at the resort with meals and golf . "Yeah"
Our second prize was contributed by the brand new, very lovely, Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Atlanta, right by Centennial Park and the Aquarium. The very first bride to arrive Tonya Smith, getting married at Cator Wolford Gardens, stayed till the very end, and it was well worth it as she won that lovely weekend for two.
Thank you Lorraine with the Hilton Hotel for the amazing gift.
I sincerely thank all our contributors from the very bottom of my heart as they came through in most amazing ways. There are tooo many to mention here but it truly pays to be generous and sweet. Our staff is indebted to you all.
