With spring comes sunshiny days, trees & flowers in bloom, & nice cool breezes to keep you outside. It’s the perfect time to grab your photographer and head out for your engagement shoot.

Atlanta Wedding – Ashley and James

Ashley and James are music lovers – James a trumpet player and Ashley a dancer, so it was natural to incorporate elements of music into their wedding design. The stationer Papered Wonders created a monogram that became a central focal point.

They started by getting ready at the W Midtown and then headed to the Biltmore Ballrooms for the wedding.

The ceremony took place in the Georgian ballroom.

The florist, Blossoms Atlanta, designed chair accents to resemble ballet slipper french knots.

We used vintage love song records for the guest book.

We flipped the Georgian ballroom from ceremony to reception and pink up lighting allowed for a dramatic transition.

Hair-spiration Before Hitting the Salon

I don’t know what it is about Spring, but it makes me want to try new things. How about you? When it comes to something new, as women, we often think about trying something new with our hair. And, on your wedding day, your hair is like the icing on the cake to your perfectly choreographed day. But when trying something new with your hair, it’s always best to do it well in advance before your wedding to give yourself time to get used to your new do, or time for your hair to correct itself if you absolutely hate it.

As with every detail of your wedding, how you style your hair should coordinate with the feel of your wedding. With this in mind, it’s also important to stay true to yourself. (You don’t want your groom wondering who that woman is walking down the aisle!) But the sky is the limit when it comes to wedding hair styles. Here’s a little hair-spiration before hitting the salon to try out your new do!

Bridal Flower Crowns

The flower children of the 60′s were all about beautiful blooms; spreading in fields of sunflowers to soak up the summer sun, draping daises and daffodils behind their ears, and adorning themselves in their iconic woven headbands of fresh wildflowers.

These children of Spring knew how to fuse fashion and flowers, inspiring our love for Spring wedding Flower Crowns. Put your inner flower child on display and let the 60s be your guide to floral accessory perfection on your Spring wedding.
