Happy Engagement, Happy Planning


Helen + Josh

“From this day forward our thoughts and actions will be for each other…our plans   mutual, our joys and sorrows shared as we become one in Christ.”


These eloquent words greeted guests on the order of service as they took their seats to enjoy the beautiful union of Helen and Josh and watch these two love birds say “I do” to begin a life together as Mr. and Mrs. Hopkins.

Josh and Helen’s fall wedding was at historic Callanwolde. The crisp, fall air was refreshing for the outside ceremony in Callanwolde’s Amphitheater.  As guests began to walk down the grass covered stones to their seats, a three piece orchestra softly played angelic music. The stone stage was decorated with two gorgeous bouquets opposite of each other. Each bouquet was bursting with white and red roses that were so bright they were seen from the entrance of the Amphitheater. 

The ceremony began at 4:20 PM. One by one the bridesmaids walked down the stone path to the stage. They walked with such poise it was as if they floated down the stairs. Their walk and deep red dresses matched the tone of the wedding—elegance and grace. After the bridesmaids finished walking, all eyes turned to the top of the stairs. Helen emerged from the beautiful tall trees, hand in hand with her father. Smiling from ear to ear, she gracefully walked down the aisle and there was not a dry eye in the Amphitheater. She looked beautiful and serene in her white dress and Josh’s face said it all when their eyes locked— happiness. The couple exchanged their vows and sealed their forever with a kiss.

Following the ceremony, guests walked up the stairs to enjoy cocktail hour at Callanwolde’s Front Patio. The patio décor matched the elegance of the ceremony. There were high boys outside draped with white linens. The centerpieces were tiny tree trunks topped with a white candle inside a bronze lantern. Guests mingled and enjoyed the open bar, both inside and outside. Inside was a beverage table for coffee, water and a whiskey barrel with Josh and Helen’s wedding date and last name, Hopkins, engraved on the wooden barrel.

While guests enjoyed cocktail hour, the Courtyard, where the reception would take place, transformed into its own special ceremony. Helen and Josh not only blended their two lives together that day, but cultures as well. Helen is Korean and in Korean weddings a scared tradition takes place- Pyebaek. A Pyebaek is a tea ceremony where the bride and groom are surrounded by only family members. The couple drinks tea from both cups for their future of unity together.

Helen and Josh wore traditional Korean attire and the décor for the ceremony was picturesque with color penetrating the room. A wooden divider was the back drop painted with birds perched on branches and flowers. The wooden table, draped with a red and blue table cloth was the centerpiece. The table was covered with treats and other traditional food for the ceremony. Part of the ceremony is to have dates and chestnuts for the couple to eat to symbolize healthy children. As the couple drank their tea and ate the chestnuts, it felt like another presence in the room as Helen and Josh blended their families together— a presence of respect and admiration for one another. It was magical.

Once the ceremony concluded the doors opened for the reception. The reception’s ambiance exuded more elegance and grace. The tables were draped with clean white linens and each table either had a small wooden trunk with poppy flowers in a vase or tall twigs intertwined with white orchids as the centerpieces. White flowers entangled the lavish greenery for the head table and two white block signs with “Mr. and Mrs.” written for the newlyweds decorated the table.

After the bridal party made their entrance, the crowd cheered and clapped as Helen and Josh gallivanted into the ceremony holding hands as Mr. and Mrs. Hopkins. Following the first dance, it was time to eat! Embracing both of their cultures, there were two food rooms. One served American food and the other served Korean food. The reception continued with laughs, cheers and a toast that filled Helen’s eyes with tears of joy.

The night continued with dancing, a garter and bouquet toss and love floating in the air.

We are so fortunate we were able to be a part of Helen and Josh’s magical night. Thank you for entrusting us with your vision.

Jamie + Katherine

A friend of a feather flock together is a true statement for friendship, but also for romantic relationships—including Jamie and Katherine’s. Jamie and Katherine’s close circle of friends is how these two love birds met. The group of friends would hangout together and in those moments, Jamie and Katherine began to develop their own personal friendship. Their bond escalated from friendship to romance with the ultimate ending—a hand in marriage.

Jamie and Katherine’s forever began September 24, 2016 at beautiful Park Tavern. The weather was picturesque with the sun beaming and not a cloud in sight. Park Tavern is a restaurant located on the corner of Piedmont Park. The restaurant doubles as a perfect setting for a wedding with its open and spacious white tent and intimate lawn area for the ceremony to take place.

The ambiance and decorations for the wedding was out of a lavish fairytale movie—every bride’s dream. The reception tables were draped with crisp white linens, with two designs for the guest tables: golden goblets that sparkled from the tea light candles within and lavish white bouquet of flowers designed by Unique Floral Expressions. The black and white checkerboard dance floor was a great detail to compliment the gold and white theme. And to top off the whimsical setting, there were white lanterns delicately hanging from the ceiling in symmetrical lines with a golden chandelier in the middle. Jamie and Katherine’s wedding exuded sophistication and romance. 

Guests began to arrive and make their way to their seats. Upon arrival, guests were greeted by two decadent white bouquets that stood atop a wooden case. Flower petals covered the grass aisle, and the white flowers entangled on the wooden cross was a loving sight to witness. Perhaps what gave the ceremony another touch of beauty, was the gorgeous Willow tree in the background.

The ceremony was a short and sweet testament to Katherine and Jamie’s admiration for each other. The extra sentiment to the ceremony was the bonus of Katherine’s sister, Sarah, as the officiant. She gave the traditional blessing of the vows and included a romantic quote by John Lennon: “A dream you dream alone is only a dream, but a dream you dream together is reality.” With tears filled in everyone’s eyes, the happy couple kissed and was pronounced Mr. and Mrs. Phillips.

Cocktail hour began after the ceremony and guests enjoyed sipping cocktails provided by the open bar, played cornhole on Georgia Bulldogs theme boards and took pictures with Taylor Swift and Brad Pitt in the photo booth, provided by Famous Russell; entertainment was in full swing.

After a joyful cocktail hour, guests began to make their way to their seats for the reception. Katherine and Jamie’s first dance was to a tender country love song. It was as if they were the only two in the room as they gazed lovingly into each other’s eyes; he held her tight and she didn’t let go.

The delicious and lavish three course meal was catered by Park Tavern that included—mozzarella wrapped prosciutto salad, filet mignon, pan-seared chicken breast and French vanilla cake from Cakes by Anna.

After guests dined on their fulfilling meals, the floor was opened to speeches. Katherine’s dad gave a humorous speech about her always wanting to live next to Interstate 75 and her love for dogs, while her sister gave a heartfelt speech that included sentiments of them growing up and how their men balance them out.

When the speeches concluded, the dance floor opened up and guests danced the night away, mingling and laughing.

We had so much fun helping plan Katherine and Jamie’s wedding. Thank you for trusting us with your vision. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness.
