Held earlier this month, our first ever Wedding Talk event was absolutely fabulous! The truly intimate, entirely interactive and completely innovative bridal show was hosted in the Grand Ballroom at The Ritz-Carlton Atlanta and provided engaged couples exclusive face time with the area’s top wedding professionals.

This new, more personal approach to the traditional massive bridal convention format provided a unique opportunity for couples heading down the aisle to connect with some of the most talented vendors in Atlanta, hear their expert advice, learn about trends, find inspiration, participate in Q-&-A sessions, and in many cases, experience their stellar services and sample their incredible creations firsthand!Wedding Talk (89 of 123)
With eye candy in every direction and the attention to detail brides and grooms can expect to receive at their own weddings, the premier wedding specialists showcased at the Wedding Talk presented their range of offerings in four different settings. For example, a clean, crisp snowy white lounge-inspired section included health and wellness providers. A black-and-silver Great Gatsby vignette accommodated many groom-related areas, such as jewelry design and attire consulting. An upscale table design dressed in classic black-and-white featured an array of elegant flatware, glassware, China and linen rentals, gorgeous floral arrangements and other décor options. And an unforgettable mock ceremony section was created with acrylic chairs, where a spectacular cake demo took place and a photographer and a videographer conveyed the dos and don’ts of finding the right company to capture those once-in-a-lifetime memories.

It is always exciting to be featured in print, and our recent opulent jewel-toned, romance-inspired photo shoot is our latest feature in the local Oh Brides Magazine, out on the newsstands now! We were thrilled at the opportunity to conceptualize this lavish look, and we are delighted to celebrate and show off the collaboration of my top vendors.

When I was approached to create the concept and outline of the overall look, I immediately commissioned the exceptionally talented wedding professionals I work with frequently, knowing they would help me deliver a swoon-worthy vignette.Screen-Shot-2014-03-18-at-3.21.17-PM1-715x432


I wanted to venture outside Atlanta and create a “local destination” option so I turned to The Mansion on Forsyth Park, a stunning facility in Savannah, Ga. I just adore how the event space’s grand statues and dramatic lighting contribute to the overall modern yet regal look.

Collaborating with I Do Linens, I was inspired by the navy patterned sequin table covering. I knew its intense sapphire hue would ensure the color-rich accents popped, from the coral napkins to the multi-hued roses and hydrangea floral arrangement from Perfect Petals Design Group.CollageJAV_7238


Texture was my must-have for this concept, and I incorporated it every element possible, including the striking amethyst- and lapis-colored menus created by Sandi Spells Design, which are wrapped in a heavenly velvet, as well as Sweet Seats’ Chaivari chairs, which are draped in gold Dupioni silk. The gold-accented china, flatware and crystal from Event Rentals Unlimited were the perfect complements to this tablescape and completed the overall look. We can’t forget one of the most important contributors who made our feature possible,  Javon Longieliere Photography. This amazing collaboration wouldn’t have been featured without his dynamic images.JAV_7206-2JAV_7200

Whether held in the Caribbean, Europe or even Australia, I love that a destination wedding translates to a longer, more intimate and ‘upgraded’ celebration, as it often becomes a full-fledged vacation experience for everyone attending. This enables brides and grooms to select exotic locales, private resorts, gourmet restaurants, fabulous entertainment, indulgent activities and much more, keeping their guests comfortable, well-fed, relaxed, entertained, pampered and immersed in quality time with the soon-to-be newlyweds.

Here are a handful of my favorite destination wedding ‘perks’ that have proven to be worth the splurge…
1. Embrace the ‘theme’ of the location to inspire the organized activities. Think: beachside luaus, private pool parties, golf outings, massages within earshot of the seashore, boating trips, s’mores under the stars…

2. Boost the welcome basket bounty. Guests really appreciate a thoughtful arrival surprise, as they find fun and essential gifts such as flip flops in the wedding colors, custom-printed monogrammed labels on water bottles, a rundown of the area (i.e., map, currency, transportation, trusted activities, etc.), indigenous snacks…

3. Step up the details that make a difference with custom-designed elements including invitations, printed table runners, a menu of decadent made-to-order cuisine infused with local flair, a spectacular pièce de résistance wedding cake…palmeri211palmeri232palmeri281

4. Pursue coveted vendors, especially the ever-important photographer. In fact, I encourage couples to fly in their preferred shutterbug to ensure their precious memories are properly documented and preserved for their happily ever after…palmeri190palmeri157

A smaller, more intimate gathering affords hosts and hostesses the opportunity and flexibility to splurge across the board. The possibilities are endless — and effortless for those who put it all in my creative, capable hands.
