Real J.E.E. Wedding: Ursula + Shomari’s Lake Lanier Wedding

Hey yall! I’m so freaking excited to share these photos with you!  Lake Lanier was the perfect backdrop for their Southern Sensibility Meets Windy City Charm Wedding!  And I absolutely adored the Unique Wedding Details that reflected this couple in every way.

  • Guests signed His & Hers Rocking Chairs instead of the traditional guest book (since their first date was at a Cracker Barrel)
  • Garrett’s Popcorn and Gino’s East Deep Dish Pizza was flown in from Chicago to serve as a Midnight Snack
  • Their 5-tier wedding cake was created to look like Atlanta’s Westin Peachtree Plaza
  • Each guest released a glow-in the dark balloon at the end of the night in memorial of loved one’s that have passed

And I could go on and on but check out the pictures below to see what I mean..

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.

Navy Blue & Fuchsia Anniversary Party


A friend asked me to come up with some ideas for her parent’s 30th Wedding Anniversary Party. Her parents were indifferent on the theme and color story of the party but she wanted something that both of her parents would like … so I suggested Fuchsia and Navy Blue and her parents loved it !

Fuchsia and Navy Blue is definitely a good blend of masculine and feminine and depending on how you stage it, this color combo would also work for a baby shower for twins or even children’s party.

Her parent’s Anniversary Party will take place over Labor Day Weekend so I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Need ideas for your next event ? Call me and I’ll create an inspiration board just for you !

Happy Planning !

Modern & Unique Invitation Websites


Hey yall. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite invitation websites. These invitations are Fun, Modern, Bright, and definitely Non-Traditional … the {JEE Style} Don’t get me wrong, my first recommendation for my clients is to work with an invitation designer to create custom and personalized invitations. BUT, if you don’t have the budget for a designer these invitations are a great option.  Check them out and let me know what you think ?    |   |


Happy Planning !
