Hopefully, one day we’ll get a client that wants to be free and creative

 It would be so much fun to incorporate their child into the wedding ceremony.  

Will You Be Bringing Your Dog To Your Wedding?

Do you have a serious case of puppy love with man’s best friend? If so, it may not come as a big surprise that many couples tying the knot are choosing to involve their furry friend in the biggest day of their lives.
Pictured is Kim & Chris with their furry friend Maggie! I just adore this idea, after all, your pet is a huuuge part of your day-to-day life, so why not your wedding day too?

Here’s a snippet from Kim & Chris: 
“We wanted our photos to be natural, fun, and filled with lovely photos of our dog Maggie. Louise listened to exactly what we wanted and we ended up with the most amazing wedding photos we could have ever asked for.”

Stylish Mix Fall Wedding in Georgia

The lush greenery flowing from the quaint garden and polished, industrial chic indoor space of Venue 92 created the perfect combination for the Hoskins’ September wedding. Farren and Derrick knew they wanted a venue that captured the essence of what makes them uniquely them. The couple lives in Atlanta, but both are originally from Mississippi. While Farren had always dreamed of an outdoor wedding with nature’s beautiful touches, she admired the glam, modernity and edge of a sleek reception. And of course, Derrick agreed (What man wouldn’t be smart enough to? lol).

The couple exchanged “I Do’s” with the perfect outdoor backdrop surrounded by full floral arrangements of white hydrangeas and roses provided by Stylish Stems to top off the scene. Farren’s bridesmaids added the perfect pop of color with flowing, elegant but fun mint gowns slightly varying in style between each girl, while Derrick’s groomsmen sported cool, gray tuxedos to compliment the vibrancy of their counterparts.

About 100 guests enjoyed an easy cocktail hour underneath a covered side terrace complete with highboys dripped in soft champagne linens and centered with modest florals. Guests sipped wine and signature cocktails and tasted light hors d’oeuvres as talented Birmingham-based photographer Sam Jasper snapped the perfect shots of the newlywed’s big day.

Farren and Derrick along with their friends and family danced the night away between edgy brick columns, polished cement floors and warm, amber lighting. And for Farren, the day would not be complete without some added bling! Following the mixed-metallic theme, round tables were set with alternating silver sequins and silver pinch-wheel linens, silver chiavari chairs and plenty of candlelight. Let’s not forget the dreamy white floral centerpieces nestled in gold vases. And that southern menu so charmingly framed in gold and silver… we did mention the couple is from Mississippi, right?
Chef Dwayne Hairston of Custom Creations and his staff served the ultimate Southern feast complete with lemon & herb grilled chicken breast, four cheese baked macaroni, angus roast beef, southern-style collard greens, and sweet potato soufflé.

The cakes? A classic, three-tiered French vanilla and Italian cream wedding cake wrapped in bling ribbon and an adorable cinnamon-flavored hunting themed groom’s cake topped with deer antlers… the southern comfort meets urban flare mix shines through again!

Mr. and Mrs. Hoskins continued the night embracing under the place’s memorizing chandeliers and draped beams and received a joyous send-off as guests waved night sparklers above the smiling couple’s hand-in-hand walkout.
