Monkeying Around

We have plenty of catching up to do in the blogging world, however, I just received these photos from an event in late February at the ever-so-chic Ventanas and couldn’t resist sharing them with you now! Our client wanted something fun, unique, eye-catching, but still very sophisticated with a lounge, club feel. Is the first thing that pops in your head when you hear this description three 36” white resin monkeys standing guard over your event? Well, maybe not, but as you can see below, the monkeys proved to be a stunning addition to the décor.

Additional design elements included 14’ hanging mirrored curtains, seating “pods” and vignettes, floral designs to include purple anthirium and monstera leaves and food stations crafted from Lucite and metro shelving.

It was very important to our client to brand the evening. Servers greeted guests with custom designed t-shirts with screens which continuously looped to logos of the event sponsors. In addition, two 8’ round decals were placed on the floor with graphics from the event signage.

And, because Ventanas has such a great view.. Enjoy!

Black and White and Yellow All Over

I cannot think of a better way to kick off our blog than to feature our very own Jacqui Carlyle’s stunning wedding and reception at the King Plow Arts Gallery last April. This wedding featured a contemporary mix of black, white and yellow and showcased Jacqui’s bold personality. Special details included custom designed linens, unique floral designs to each dinner table and several elements hanging from the ceiling.

Many of you have probably seen these photographs as this occasion was featured in Weddings Unveiled, http://weddingsunveiledblog.blogspot.com/, Brides Atlanta, Atlantan Brides, www.stylemepretty.com and www.brides.com, but believe me, they NEVER get old. Take a look…

Jacqui carried a bouquet of yellow garden roses, eucharist lily, pincushion protea and lilac

Black art deco vases exploded with forsythia branches to accent the ceremony in the round

Guests made their way to the seated dinner through an umbrella garden and retrieved their place cards from a lit arbor

A few detailed shots of the dinner tables:

Lounge seating

Who doesn’t want their cake hanging from the ceiling?

And, the Pièce de Résistance, the upside down tulip chandelier!

You have a year to give a wedding gift so why not wait a year to blog about it? From now on, we will not wait so long and we look forward to blogging about many more events, ideas and inspirations!
