In honor of #valentinesday, I’m sharing one of my all-time favorite wedding readings: I Like You by Sandol Stoddard Warburg. Check out this hilarious, sweet little book about friendship and love. A quote: “I like you because when I tell you something special you know it’s special and you remember it a long long time. You say remember when you told me something special and both of us remember. When I think something is important you think it’s important too. We have good ideas.”
And my favorite part, from the end: “I would go on choosing you and you would go on choosing me over and over again. That’s how it would happen every time.”

Happy Candlemas and Groundhog Day! Winter is turning toward spring, I’m seeing daffodils blooming (so early!) and on #throwbackthursday I’m thinking of this beautiful February wedding at @summerourstudio. In the dark of winter the space was suffused with candlelight - so beautiful! I loved Kristin’s handmade sign on her chair. Instead of the typical Mr. and Mrs. signs, they invited their guests to come and say hi. So sweet! Happy almost anniversary, @kristinmharris and Jeff!

L.O.V.E. this seating chart idea (as seen in @martha_weddings): it’s a map of the night sky and each guest is seated at a table named after a constellation. I really want one of my brides to do this! Who’s in?

Tonight I am honored to be a part of A Night For Brides at @faithflowersatl. We’re going to showcase Laura and team’s gorgeous flowers, and I’m going to talk to the brides and moms about #hardtruths – Hard Truths About Wedding Planning. The five topics are Decision-Making, People Behaving Badly, Guest List, Budget and Emotional Issues. Looking forward to a fun event!

#Throwback Thursday again already? Today I am thinking of a beautiful winter wedding from 2014, in a January where it was actually cold, LOL. @isa_berbert was one of the most elegant brides I’ve ever seen - just look at how she rocks that @oscardelarenta gown! @biltmoreballrooms was stunningly decorated by @faithflowersatl and a good time was had by all.
Happy anniversary, Isabel and Tayloe!

Happy Friday, a day for #love and #gratitude. Today I am proud to announce that @circleoflove.weddings has won Wedding Wire’s 2017 #CouplesChoice award (putting us in the top 5% of wedding professionals on the highly regarded site).

Can’t wait to be back at one of my favorite venues, @callanwoldeevents, this weekend. I have done so many beautiful weddings there, dating back to 2007! For #throwbackthursday, here’s an oldie but goodie of one of my beautiful brides Emily Koch with her husband Chris and the groomsmen. Love his @converse_chuck_taylors! He was following one of my rules: comfort first!

Congratulations to my beautiful niece @liliplove777, who got engaged to Franky on Christmas Eve! The brave soul got down on one knee in front of her whole family. My favorite part is Toby, one of her dogs, being right there in the mix. (Look closely at the bottom of the pic to see him!) Enjoy this special time, Liana! Wishing you and Franky a beautiful life together. ❤️

So I meant to post a pic during the wedding last Saturday, but that didn’t happen. :) Instead of Throwback Thursday, we’re just going to do Beautiful Couple Thursday today. Maybe it’ll become a thing. Congratulations, Susie and Ricardo! It was a beautiful wedding, and we all wish you a beautiful life together! Thanks to our fabulous vendor team: @timharmanphoto, @cre8ive_cinema, @fernbankmuseum, @ampddj, @starlitebooth, @faithflowersatl, @proofthepudding, @formalfaces, @frostedpumpkincakes, @sweetseats and #georgiatechtrolley. You are all amazing!

Happy Friday! On this day for #love and #gratitude, my lovely couple is preparing for an important day in their Lovely Love Story. They are incorporating this sweet book by #edwardmonkton as a reading in their beautiful ceremony (which I was honored to assist in creating #circleofloveceremonies). Can’t wait for tomorrow, Susie and Ricardo! Thank you for being my clients! My wish for you is that you enjoy many moments of love and joy this weekend, and hold them in your memories always. “Let us all be Dinosaurs and Lovely Other Dinosaurs together. For the sun is warm. And the world is a beautiful place.” #atlantaweddings #atlantaweddingplanner #beautifulcouple #joyfulunions #weddingplanning #staycalm
