Leslie and Greg’s magical day, designed by Eliana Baucicault of ellyB Events, was a combination of hometowns, wow-factors and #SuperLove, creating something beyond their wildest dreams. Guests arrived to a vibrant sight of bold blues and purples at The Foundry at Puritan Mill.
“We chose the Foundry at Puritan Mill in Atlanta, GA because it had the old charm element that I was looking for that represented my hometown of New Orleans. The exposed brick and beams just reminded me of the French Quarter and the overall goal was to bring New Orleans to Atlanta!”
Ceremony programs were traditional church fans, a nod to Greg’s upbringing in New York. Cherry blossom trees lined the aisle, creating a fairytale-like canopy as bridesmaids in bold blue and purple and groomsmen in gray filed in. Left breathless by the ethereal ceremony before her, Leslie began her candle-lit stroll toward her husband-to-be, who awaited her under a dome of lush foliage, hydrangeas and roses, tears of happiness in his eyes. Shortly after, the newlyweds danced their way out of the ceremony as husband and wife. They stole away for outdoor portraits under string lights and a clear night sky as their reception was readied.
Glowing centerpieces, luxurious linens, vibrant purple chargers and a lush elevated runner that sat atop the grand estate table set a night-like tone for the evening’s celebration. Guests enjoyed a choice of three dinner stations—Bourbon Street, Tavern on the Green and Peachtree Street. Each featured culinary staples from Leslie’s hometown of New Orleans, Greg’s upbringing in New York, and Atlanta, where the couple met and began their relationship. A tiered blue cake donning a gold sugar flower by Cakes by LaMeeka was served as dessert alongside Greg’s Superman groom’s cake, with a “K” replacing the traditional “S.” The couple enjoyed a riveting evening of entertainment and dancing before exiting under a shower of purple petals.
