#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). Even better, this is the ninth year in a row we have been honored with this distinction. As ever, I am so #grateful to all my brides, grooms, parents and vendor and venue partners. Without you, @circleoflove.weddings would not be! xoxoxo

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

In preparation for this weekend’s wedding, for #throwbackthursday I was remembering Sam and Patrick’s beautiful celebration a few years ago. These slippers that @sbresnahancnn bought for her girls are possibly the best bridesmaids’ gift I’ve ever seen! #atlantaweddings #atlantaweddingplanner #beautifulcouple #joyfulunions #weddingplanning #tbt

Question of the week for Wondering Wednesday: Many clients have asked me how much time they should take off from work the week of the wedding. My answer: as much as possible! Definitely the day before, and better if it can be 2-3 days before. The whole week would be ideal! Most of my clients say their biggest stress the week of the wedding is finishing up work. It’s hard to fathom how quickly those last few days fly by, with picking up the gown, finishing the seating chart and favors, dropping off welcome bags and final payments, getting nails done, and visiting family who have arrived, and a million other last minute to-dos that just happen, no matter how organized you are! Plus, wouldn’t it be a bonus to have a little time to yourself to breathe before the big day? #atlantaweddings #atlantaweddingplanner #weddingtipsandtricks #weddingplanning #welcomebags #staycalm

Bright idea of the week: Seating chart board with names listed by table on cards attached to a fabric-covered board inside the frame. The twist? A monogram or pattern to coincide with the wedding theme printed on the background of the cards. When they are put together you see the pattern! A hint for this weekend’s wedding: their background motif is a brontosaurus! Credit @decomarj for this design. #atlantaweddings #atlantaweddingplanner #seatingchart #brightidea

Happy Friday! It’s a day for #love and #gratitude…the sun is shining, my Christmas cards are going out today, and I am thankful for a lovely thank you note from one of my beautiful brides, @megcantey. She says, “We definitely could not have done it without you. It really was a perfect day.” Look for more details from her #bookthemewedding to be posted soon on circleofloveweddings.com. Happy almost one-month anniversary, Meghann and Jim! Hugs to you! 📷: @leahandmark #dahlonegawedding #beautifulcouple #joyfulunions #atlantaweddings #atlantaweddingplanner
