Inspiration for a wedding theme can come from just about anywhere. For Kaylan Keeter, it came in the form of Shakespeare. A Midsummer Night’s Dream, to be exact. The classic comedy struck a note with the bride-to-be, and resulted in the theme of her May 8, 2010 wedding to Jacob Lewis: an enchanted forest. Roswell, Georgia wedding venue Primrose Cottage was the venue of choice, and to create the enchanted forest look for the reception, Teresa Day, a co-owner of Magic Moments, used specialty lighting and grand centerpieces in three sizes that looked like curly willow trees with twinkling candles. More candles on the tables and crystals hanging in front of the room’s many windows only enhanced the magical effect, especially as the lighting, which had started out in a soft pink, slowly deepened to a romantic amber. The crystal beads, sheer fabric, mirror chargers, a custom monogram gobo and intriguing light patterns coupled with unusual color combinations had a mesmerizing effect. “It wouldn’t have been the same at all without the intricate lighting and special flowers,” said bride Kaylan. “It was just amazing.” Images by Atlanta wedding photographer Brandelyn Lee Photography.
