CB Couples' Anniversary | Laura + Sam

 Happy Memorial Day!  We are celebrating the anniversary of another Ciao Bella Wedding's Couple today, Laura and Sam.  This adorable couple was referred to us by the amazingly talented Melissa Prosser Collazo.  When she told us how fun this couple was, we immediately knew we wanted in on their design!  Their emerald and black color palette was perfect for their outdoor ceremony and reception at Chateau Elan. When it came to keeping the party going, this couple did not disappoint!  The music was pumping well into the wee hours of the morning at the Winery Pavilion of Chateau Elan.  And who could forget the inflatable bounce house on the lawn...a Chateau first!  Melissa and crew were there to capture all the special moments!


 My fave!!




CB Couples' Anniversary | Racquel + Mike

Today I celebrate the anniversary of one of the cutest couples through this blog post!  Racquel and Mike are one of the most loving couples I have ever met and had the most beautiful wedding at the picturesque Vines Mansion in Loganville, GA.  Their peacock themed wedding was infused with rich tones of turquoise, purple, and bronze.  They have the most adorable little one year old and I wish them many more years of marital bliss!!!






Will you be my 'maid?

...bridesmaid, of course!  Your wedding day is the best day to be surrounded by your life long friends, which have probably been there for every important step of your life.  I just love how thoughtful brides are being, by asking their friends (who I am sure, already assumed they were!) to be apart of their wedding.

Many of you know that my best friend is getting married this fall and I am super excited for her wedding.  Both her and her fiance' are HUGE movie fan. Like, I can't think of one movie they haven't seen.  So their wedding has a bit of theatrics to it, starting with these...

How cute, right!  We received the Bridesmaid's movie poster with our faces on the characters!    Attached was the sweetest hand written note from my best friend, the bride, asking to be apart of her big day. It was too cute.  The funniest thing...I feel as though our personalities fit the characters whose body we are attached to...priceless!  Her fiance' sent his groomsmen a Mission Impossible movie poster.  I just love them!!!

How will you ask your friends to be apart of your day?


Floral Inspiration | A Fall Hued Bouquet

Hi Beautiful!  I hope you are having a lovely day!  Today, I played with flowers...so it is a wonderful day for me!!  Earlier this week, we had a prototype meeting for one of our lovely brides getting married this summer and  happened to have a few stems left over. 

This is what happens to leftovers in our studio...

This lovely hand tied beauty is full of roses, dahlias, hypericum berries, sunflowers, and snapdragons.  This is the perfect color combination for a late summer/autumn wedding.  The vibrant hues blend perfectly and when accented with a gold ribbon are an awesome pair.  Since she was camera ready, we had a mini shoot on the lawn of our studio!

 And my fave...

Conceited little thing, huh?  Our little shoot is a preview of the many shots that your photographer can get of your bouquet when they get to spend a little one on one time!!

Enjoy the rest of your day!!!


Star Style | The Braided Updo

I am completely in love with Alicia Keys' look for the BBMAs last night. Pure elegance that would easily translate into chic bridal style.
