About The Wedding
Devan and Clyde planned a classic, formal affair, with their ceremony at Atlanta's most historic church, the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and their reception at the Ritz Downtown. The ladies wore royal blue, and Devan's gown was detailed with a beautiful jeweled belt. Her sister later said in her toast that although she was not a crier, she shed a few tears as Devan processed, because she looked so beautiful. How sweet! Devan's family is extremely close and seeing the little moments they enjoyed was so fulfilling. Z Grant's beautiful hydrangea arrangements enhanced the Ritz's gorgeous ballroom, and guests enjoyed a seated dinner with a dual entree of beef and fish. The dance floor was packed the entire night, and the photo booth stayed busy as well!
My Favorite Detail
At Devan's shower, they had petit fours and Clyde had some of the leftovers and loved them - he had never had them before. Devan thought it would be cute to have petit fours instead of a groom's cake - and it was funny, because Clyde was a football player and is about 6'5". The delicate petit fours were unexpected, but he loved them!
My Favorite Moment
The blessing was given by an old family friend, who has known Devan since she was little. The lady made a sweet speech beforehand, saying how honored she was to be asked. It was really nice!

Comments From The Couple
"Thank you so much for ALL of your help with everything. I literally couldn't have done it without you, as I simply didn't have the time to put in the effort and precision you did every time you completed a task. You have been beyond great and I am so very fortunate to have had you on my side to guide me through everything. I'm forever grateful!" ~ Devan (bride)
