Ansley and JB’s Ethereal Early Fall Wedding was simply magical! Their historic outdoor Georgia wedding venue, Dunaway Gardens, was once a theatrical training ground for stage performances. Today, it provides the perfect outdoor oasis for couples to be wed and it was only natural that the couple be serenaded by Luna Strings for their ceremony. Mr. and Mrs. Boyd to say “I do” on a lovely September day with the weather providing hints of the start of fall – a cool, crisp day and the leaves just starting to change and fall. The elegant woodland theme was evident throughout through their color choices, decor, and even favors. What better way to remember this beautiful fall wedding than with handmade pinecone Christmas ornaments as favors. So cute!
Another theme was consistent throughout the day – southern hospitality! You could tell Ansley and JB wanted their guests to feel comfortable and welcome. From the mini champagne bottles on each ceremony chair to the kids table complete with arts and crafts and the multiple cake options from Tulla White Cuisine and Catering, guest experience was important to this sweet couple and they absolutely nailed it!
Other favorite details included the groom and groomsmen’s suits in a vibrant blue hue that was the perfect compliment to the neutral bridesmaids dresses and deeper red and purple tones used throughout the florals designed by Ross Harper and Jimmy Mitchum. Norris Dates and Power Surge kept the dance floor packed until their send off, as guests waived red and black pompoms (Go Dawgs!) for the groom and blue and orange pompoms for the bride. .
You said “Yes!” Now let the planning begin! Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta returns to Southern Exchange Ballrooms on Sunday, August 12 from 1-5pm. Enjoy an afternoon at the South’s most extravagant bridal event and get ready to swoon over the latest wedding trends.

Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Club
Oak Brook, IL
On December 22, 2017, Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Club had the pleasure of welcoming Bonnie and Logan’s 165 guests to their charming space, where they chose to host their reception. The couple fell in love with the secluded rustic charm and exceptional service that Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Club offers. The warm and welcoming atmosphere of the historic clubhouse made everyone feel right at home from the moment they arrived.
Do you like the outdoors and romance? While most of the ongoing trend is the light and airy feel, there are couples who want the moody romance vibe. The inspiration of this shoot was to showcase how moody reds and greens don’t have to look like Christmas, but can have a romantic and moody vibe to it. This kind of style would be perfect for couples who love the outdoors where there are lots of trees.
This wedding inspiration is modern meets style, meets bold and vibrant colors. We aimed to create a luxury design that explores both the Indian rich design, yet giving it a modern look for everyday bride. Our inspiration comes from the Indian culture which embraces the importance of bold and vibrant colors. Each detail was planned meticulously to create the exact look we were going for. From the selection of flowers to the luxury linens to the exquisite gold table settings, each detail has come together to create a look of elegance in a clean modern space. The floral table runner drapes beautifully down the table with flowers that celebrates the pantone color of the year—Ultraviolet, with a pop of hot pink roses and garnished with beautiful hot pink orchids. Each gold vases, candle holders, and table setting are purposely placed on the table to honor the rich Indian culture of the importance of gold and its symbol of wealth.

Brick walls, dark floors and bohemian décor in deep jewel tones set a cozy scene for Kara and Matt’s late-winter wedding at the King Plow Arts Center.
“King Plow offered two beautiful indoor spaces—one for the ceremony and reception and one for cocktail hour. The brick walls and the dark concrete floors make a beautiful backdrop for just about any decor, so we had fun treating the space as a blank slate.”
