As bride-to-be Alberta Watkins planned her September 4, 2010, wedding, she and fiance Chris Waller struggled with deciding on an event theme. Over all, they both knew they wanted their wedding to have a classic and elegant feel. When they looked at Atlanta wedding and event venue Biltmore Ballrooms as a possible reception venue, though, it all began to fall into place. Both bride and groom were charmed by the elegant interiors of the Georgian Ballroom, and Alberta knew the Biltmore Ballrooms would be just right for their ceremony and reception. Atlanta based wedding planner EllyB Events worked with the bride to bring all the details together and ensure a smooth planning process. With her help, the couple decided on a color scheme of wine red and silver-grey. The colors were incorporated into the linens, flowers and other aspects of the event, including the bride’s shoes! Floral arrangements by Jackson Durham Flowers and Events added just the right pop of color to the ballroom and kept to the classic and elegant theme. With the help of Paper Daisies Stationary, the couple designed a monogram that also appeared throughout the event. Lighting and music were provided by One Sound Entertainment, allowing the couple to illuminate the dance floor with the couple’s new monogram. Endive Catering provided delicious bites all evening, ending with a dessert bar full of items selected by the bride and groom. Images by Melissa Hume Photography.
