Gatsby Bash at Rhodes Hall


Fernanda and Jeff 
wed in Gatsby fashion at the iconic Rhodes Hall on Peachtree Street.  This venue is special to me because I was married there!  I love its style, elegance and the history it represents.



Of course, real ostrich feathers were used for this affair.  Over 600 to be exact!  Champagne colored ostrich feathers were added to the boutonnieres and featured throughout the entire wedding.


Fernanda's bridal bouquet featured anemones, white roses, majolica spray roses, stock, ranunculus and springerii.


Pearl wristlets with ranunculus and spray roses for the mothers and grandmothers were delivered on a sterling silver tray.




Gorgeous art deco inspired earrings amongst the feathers.


Bridesmaids bouquets were similar to the bride, just a bit smaller.


Flower halo for the flower girl.


Pretty blooms and prosecco to start the day!


Fernanda with the gorgeous blue hair was a stunning bride.


Her bridesmaids were so excited to be a part of her day.  ;)


Sparkly gowns for the girls hit that Gatsby-style head on.


Sparkly headpieces added the final perfect touch.






Ostrich feathers surrounded the couple for the ceremony at the base of the ornate stairway.



Small guest tables featured art deco rose gold votives as well as small lamp centerpieces reminiscent of the era.


Cocktail tables featured oil lamp vases with monstera leaves, springerii and anemones.


Table numbers were art deco perfect.


Married!  Guests even came in suits and dresses inspired by '20s fashion.


Jeff surprised Fernanda by flying in her brother who was originally unable to attend the ceremony.  She was surprised right before she walked down the aisle.  There were tears all around.


Large buffet pieces of palm, monstera and springerii graced the satin and pearl draped tables.
Catering by Talk of the Town.


This croquembouche was amazing!  


I've said this before but I love when the groom holds the bouquet!


Such a gorgeous shot.

On top of Rhodes Hall and looking toward the future.  It was a joy working with these two!  Fernanda has a keen eye for detail and brought her vision to life in sparkles, blooms, feathers and glam.
Here's to the happy family and a Happy Life!

Mr. & Mrs. Jones // Glenn Memorial Church and The Emory Conference Center (AND an awesome afterparty)



Oh, the allure of a man in uniform!  How elegant and handsome are these two?



But let's go back to the beginning...Emily and her bridesmaids started off the day with a few bubbles!




Emily's bouquet was a loose, hand-tied collection of italian ruscus, ranunculus, stockflower, citrus bush, and freesia in soft color palette of ivories, blush and peach.





Can flower girls ever be any sweeter or cuter?


Glenn Memorial Church is a statuesque site on the Emory campus.



Emily's mother and sister were glowing just as much as Emily!




And Mr. Jones and his buddies were quite the dapper lot.


The SilverBell Pavilion at Emory is nestled in the woods and surrounded by windows, a lovely reception venue.












Home Sweet Jones and a giant sparkler exit.



But wait!  Who wants to go home when you can have an afterparty at Wisteria Lanes?!!  I absolutely love that Emily bowls in her wedding gown!  From beautiful and elegant to beer and bowling takes some panache. 









Hmm, I wonder who bowled the better score??  LOL.




What's an afterparty without a few shots?





And then, the CHICKEN BISCUITS show up right on time!



Yum!

All the best to Mr & Mrs. Jones!
