When Atlanta artist Brooke Lowe became engaged, she had a very particular vision for her big day — a mash-up of vintage and modern. Many wedding planners would have found this daunting, but thankfully for Brooke, The Party Girl Events took her unique vision and made it a stunning reality! It all happened at Atlanta wedding venue King Plow Event Gallery, a former factory with an aura both antique and artsy. The decor left guests wide-eyed and breathless from the moment they entered the door. Lush rows of plants, shrubs, boxwood spheres and Spanish moss lay mingled with pillar candles, lanterns, and glass cylinders on each side of the aisle as witnesses seated in mirage chairs watched the bride and groom become husband and wife. Neutral linens of burlap and lace adorned farm tables at the reception, mason jars of glowing candles and white hydrangeas scattered about the tabletops as well as suspended on strands of twine. After dancing away their sugar highs from cupcakes and apple pie pops, all wildly waved their ribbons as Brooke and Spencer sent a glowing Chinese lantern into the sky before being whisked away to their honeymoon! This chic, one-of-a-kind celebration is brought to you by South Carolina wedding photographer Chris Newman Photography!
Tell us how you met. Was it love at first sight, blind date, friends forever?
We met working at a restaurant, Spencer trained me on my first day. I was instantly hooked!
Please give us an overview of the event.
An intimate wedding set in a rustic art gallery in downtown Atlanta.
Now for the proposal…details!
We had been talking about marriage for a while. One day we just decided we wanted to be engaged and we went and picked out a ring together that day. Although not traditional, it was very fitting for our relationship.
Tell us about your wedding gown.
My gown was a vintage inspired ball gown. It had a corset top with a sweetheart neckline and boning with a full crinoline skirt. Wish I could wear it every day!
What were your playful twists that made the event unique?
Everything was so simple and relaxed. We chose to each have our brothers stand beside us at the alter instead of the traditional wedding party.
Was there a specific theme or style?
The decor was a blend of rustic, vintage and contemporary elements. The neutral palette allowed the array textures to take center stage.
A good wedding planner! Couldn’t have done it without The Party Girl Events!
What was the most memorable moment?
When Tammie brought Spencer and I into the reception room for the first time. We were blown away!
Did you DIY any of the details?
We didn’t so much DIY anything, but my mom and I were involved extensively in every decor detail. With both of us having design backgrounds the decor was of utmost importance! Steven Bales was amazing at pulling our vision together.
Tell us about the food and desserts.
The food was amazing! Southern inspired stations from fried chicken to a risotto station. The dessert bar was stocked with mini bundt cakes, cupcakes, mini apple pies and cheesecake pops.
What kind of energy did your entertainment give the event?
We went from Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday to dance music later!
If there was one thing you could change, what would it be?
Nothing! Unless I could slow time!
