The Wedding Vison – Elegant Outdoor Atlanta Wedding
“Our wedding was June 2nd 2017. That date was strategically picked because that was my late grandmothers birthday. It was also national doughnut day, hence why Krispy Kreme was our wedding favors. (My favorite guilty pleasure). My vision was for the ceremony to have a clean look, we used all white flowers for the design. The guys wore light gray suits with navy accent and the girls wore navy gowns. The ceremony took place in a small and intimate garden that seated 140 guests.”
“For my gown I went with Barcelona’s famous bridal designer Rosa Clara’s design “OLVERA” from her 2017 collection. It’s a Princess-style dress with beaded guipure lace bodice and full tulle skirt with natural waist, in natural (white). My ceremony shoes were by Badgley Mischka, the Rhinestone-Embellished Satin & Leather Rouge Pumps. Also had to change into more comfortable shoes for dancing at the reception so I wore Balenciaga sneakers. “
“I decided to go with all white flowers for a minimalistic look. Didn’t want to go too crazy with colors. My designer used peonies in my bouquets and my girls.”
“Our cake was inspired by a cake I seen on Pinterest. Didn’t want the typical wedding topper so we went with fresh flowers instead. It was beautifully done. It was a vanilla cake with butterscotch icing “
Fave part of the day
“My favorite part was when the curtains dropped and finally got to see my soon to be husband waiting for me at the end of the aisle. His eyes were filled with tears. His love for me is so pure and shameless “
“Our welcome bags for our out of town guest had an “Atlanta,GA” theme that pertained a customized Coca Cola bottle that had our wedding hashtag “#CallUsNorman”, peach lotion and hand sanitizer from bath and body works, tic tacs But we removed the original label and replaced them with our name-wedding date-and phrase that said “Mint to be”, Atalanta magnets that pictured famous landmarks in the city.
Another diy was our menu cards, we printed them on stock paper and cut them ourselves.
Our programs were hand fans that we had to assemble ourselves by attaching the stick to the actual program to make the fan function properly. “
Wedding Planning Advice
“I absolutely loved the direction of our photographer. Our photos looks so editorial. Splurge on a great photographer because photos last forever even if the memory fades.” – Bride
“It was a Sunday night on October 16th, 2016 when Armonti decided to ask for my hand in marriage. I didn’t see it coming. I was at my parents house having family dinner and to my knowledge my then boyfriend was spending time with his father but to my surprise he was outside of my family’s home streaming live for his entire Facebook friends to see the proposal.
He walked in the kitchen when and almost immediately got on one knee and I started crying uncontrollably and said YES! Followed by continuously asking “Are you serious?”. I was in such disbelief but my heart was so full of joy. ” – Bride
