Alison Ascani and John Yam’s August 21, 2010 wedding fit the bill for “urban contemporary” from every angle. The two had known each other for 10 years, and dated for five, before John proposed to Alison on a bridge overlooking the Atlanta skyline in December 2009. An excited Alison, who had already been surprised with dinner at a French restaurant and a show at Atlantic Station, said yes. Settling on an August date less than a year away for their wedding, the couple quickly got moving with the planning! For their urban contemporary event, Alison booked Summerour, a refurbished industrial loft venue on Atlanta’s Westside, run by Novare Events. The couple chose yellow and blue for their colors, and worked with Juli Vaughn Designs to personalize the space. Rustic farm tables and elegant chiavari chairs set the scene and global lanterns and modern tulle curtains added some extra personality to the loft. Yellow flowers everywhere seemed to light up the space as well. The couple personalized their wedding with several unique touches: the ring pillow and garter were crafted with lace from Alison’s mother’s wedding gown, and the cake topper was made by a friend. Lethal Rhythms provided the entertainment, and kept the 250 guests having a great time while they enjoyed food from Endive Catering and wedding cake from Celso’s Cakes.
