About The Wedding
As many of my clients do, Isabel and Tayloe wanted a simple, elegant wedding. Although when they contacted me they were looking at the Ritz at Lake Oconee, they quickly decided to hold the wedding in Atlanta for the ease of all of their out-of-town guests. They fell in love with the Biltmore and with the Cathedral of St. Philip. As a busy financial career woman, decor was probably the most difficult aspect for Isabel. Her sister and mom played a big part in bringing the look together, and Laura with Faith Flowers absolutely nailed the elegant yet understated feel that Isabel really wanted. The Biltmore was stunning in shades of white and ivory, with touches of the palest blush and gold, and winter elegance shined through the whole evening. Another difficult element was that two days before the wedding, Isabel's father had emergency surgery in South Carolina and was unable to attend the wedding. After a bit of debate, Isabel elected to walk down the [very long] aisle by herself - I was so proud of her! With the wonders of modern technology, the ceremony was live-streamed to her dad in his hospital bed. After the lovely ceremony, guests arrived at the Biltmore to find the party in full swing - with lots of delectable food from Bold American (truffle mac and cheese, yes please), and the Showstoppers band in all their glory. After a fantastic evening spent visiting and dancing, Isabel and Tayloe departed in a shower of snow-like confetti in a white vintage car. A magical winter wedding, indeed!
My Favorite Detail
Isabel totally rocked her mermaid-style Oscar de la Renta gown! She's so tall and elegant, and the gown was perfectly suited to her.
My Favorite Moment
Midway through the band's dance set, I caught a glimpse of Isabel relaxed and happy on the dance floor with Tayloe, as the band played his special request (Wagon Wheel). No nervousness, no worry, just the two of them having a great time on their special day. I love it!
