Happy Anniversary Jenn & Fran!

Last year I was lucky enough to help Jennifer and Fran get married at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, GA. If I told you how much I loved having them as clients, you would think I was exaggerating their kindness, hospitality, warmth, and really cool ideas just for sake of the story. But believe me, these two ladies really are that great.

Jennifer and Fran did a few things during the ceremony that I just loved.
1. They walked toward eachother from opposite doors to start the ceremony.
2. Instead of a sand ceremony, they did a Salt Ceremony.
‘The Covenant of Salt.’ In Bible times, men wore a pouch of salt tied to their belt and when they made covenants, they would each exchange a pinch of salt, putting their grains of salt into the other’s pouch and vice versa. If a man would try to break his covenant, then the other would say, “Yes, if you can retrieve your grains and yours only from my pouch of salt.” Obviously, this was impossible because the grains of salt would all become as one when they were mixed together. 

There was so much love in this room. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to share the day with you. I wish you a lifetime of happiness.

Please join me in wishing these two lovely ladies a Happy Anniversary!

Same Sex Wedding: Belinda and Danielle

One of the coolest things I get to do is help families celebrate love. Truly. That’s the coolest part of what I do. I get the opportunity every week to bask in the glow that is one person’s love for another. And I don’t care if one of those people is the same sex, religion, or color as the other person. People are people and love is love.

Take a gander at how beautiful this demonstration of love is between Belinda and Danielle at their wedding in April at King Plow Art Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia.

They each signed a document, similar to a ketubah, which is their marriage contract. It’s so pretty and so personal. I love this idea as a keepsake to hang on the bedroom wall after the wedding. Really great ones (for all types of ceremonies – Jewish, Same Sex, heterosexual, etc.) can be found at www.ModernKetubah.com.  Danielle Belinda ceremony vows

Love this guest book idea. Each person signed a puzzle piece and when they got home, they put the puzzle together and read everyone’s well wishes. Then they could glue the puzzle together and keep it as artwork.

These ladies LOVE the movies. Every table was a different movie from their personal favorite movie collection. Each person’s escort card was a box of movie theater candy. Cute, eh? Danielle Belinda table setting grease
When we asked what their drink of choice was all night, they told us. So we made sure they had Mrs. and Mrs. rocks glasses to properly drink their drink of choice all night.
