Last weekend was Ronnie & Brent’s wedding here in Atlanta! They received the most votes during our WOW Wedding contest and honestly – everything was pretty amazing. Last summer when we came up with the idea of giving away a full wedding to some lucky couple – we had no idea that it might possibly be anywhere near as awesome as what transpired last Sunday.
Now I knew that we had assembled some of Atlanta’s best wedding industry veterans to work with us – but damn – everyone was particularly badass. Honest.
Since we’ve been flying all over the country lately for weddings and engagement sessions – having the best wedding planner/show runner was near the top of our list as far as things we wanted and needed. Fortunately, Leah Bilz of The Whole Shebang ATL took care of everything. And I mean everything. Once it was announced that Ronnie & Brent were the contest winners, Leah took it from there and rounded up all of the vendors, put us in our places, coordinated with Ronnie & Brent on their preferences and all of a sudden, like magic – the wedding day was upon us and everything went perfectly. You know – because that’s exactly why you hire a badass wedding planner right?
Everything – from the venue at 56 East, to the food from Endive Catering, to the DJ and Videography by Lethal Rhythms Entertainment – was perfect and flawless. From the bridesmaid’s hair and makeup done at Van Michael Salon, to their dress and the suits provided by Anya bridal and Saavi Formal Wear – I feel like we all worked really hard to make this the best day possible for Ronnie & Brent.
Oh and hey – ALL of the floral and event design was done by Ciao Bella Weddings – and WOW did it look amazing.
Did I mention the desserts? Sugar Lily bakery provided the favors that you see on the tables in the photos – and Miss Mamie Cakes is responsible for the wedding cake and the ridiculously cool ARMADILLO CAKE! (Just scroll down and check out the photos!)
So even though we’re in Atlanta, Georgia – and the laws are what they are – hey – sometimes dudes marry other dudes. Get over it.
Ronnie & Brent – You. Are. Awesome.
