J.E.E. TV VIDEO: How to Have the Perfect Wedding Sparkler Departure!

2 Sparkler Video Screenshot w words

So you want to have picture perfect sparkler exit before you hop in your getaway car and go to your honeymoon! But before you do, check out my Top 6 Tips:

1. Buy the 36″ Wedding Sparklers. You want them as long as possible. The sparkler exit is all about timing and you want the Wedding Sparklers to stay lit as long as possible.

2. Buy Wedding Sparklers which are usually “smokeless”…not  traditional firework sparklers. Your photographer will love you for it because they produce less smoke and they won’t get in the way of your pictures

3. Make sure your guests create a wide walkway and hold the sparklers up, not out. This is fire people…and we don’t want to have a Micheal Jackson Pepsi Commercial Moment!

4. Light every 3rd or 4th person’s Wedding Sparkler and then ask everyone to share the spark.

5. Have a container close by with a little bit of water at the bottom to collect the sparklers after the departure is over.

6. Walk down the walkway…don’t run. Take your time and savor the moment… that way your photographer can get all the shots that they need.


So do those things and you’ll have the perfect sparkler exit!

Atlanta Skyview Ferris Wheel Engagement Photo Session

Hey everyone. I just had to share these engagement photos with you! I’ve been working with Ursula and Shomari on their wedding since March of this year and they are absolutely beautiful people inside and out!

ENMUSE Photography did an awesome job capturing them at the Atlanta Skyview Ferris Wheel, Centennial Park, and the Fox Theater. They were actually going to get some photos running through the Centennial Park Fountains but they happened to cut off before they could the shot :-) .

If you think these photos are gorgeous just wait until their wedding! Stay Tuned.

Atlanta Engagement Photos: Brian + Kimberlie

Brian and Kim’s fun playful relationship was definitely showcased in their Atlanta Wedding Engagement Shoot ! These photos were taken in a park close to Kim’s childhood home and they decided to go with “A Lesson in Love” theme because she’s a teacher.

I’ve actually know Kim since College (GO ASU ! ) and I’m super excited that they chose me to help them with their Big Day in December !  Enjoy their super cute Atlanta Engagement Photo Session.

J.E.E. Party: Black & Gold 30th Birthday Party at Strip Atlanta

I had a great time working with Tameika on her Black and Gold 30th Birthday Party ! She currently serves in the Air Force and lives in Germany so a lot of our communication was done by email. The inspiration was Great Gatsby Glamour and I wanted to bring in a lot of geometric patterns and layers. Overall, I think the end result was just what she imagined ! I actually stayed for the party and had a great time meeting Tameika’s family and friends. Check it out her testimonial below and enjoy the pics.

My dinner party was the BOMB! I was looking for someone local to plan my party, while living in Germany when I contacted Janel. She took the dinner party to another level, my guest were Wowed by everything. She took all my ideas and mashed them up into an awesome design proposal. Everything went well together and flowed so beautifully. Janel was accessible by phone and email at all times, so the challenge of me living in Germany was easily overcome. There was so much attention to the small details of the event. Thank you Janel, I enjoyed the party and so did my guests. If you’re considering an event planner, don’t think just do it! You won’t regret hiring Janel Elise Events.
