Paper Me Wonderful

Purely Wondrous Inspiration

Collaborate, Design, Inspire then Educate

"Having a great idea and not selling it well is like sitting on a pig and hoping for a ham sandwich!" Very well said Sam Harrison. This weekend, the Atlanta Wedding Creative is hosting our first education event, A Planners Workshop. This is not your regular sitting in the room sipping water listening to people talk type of workshop. Michelle Gainey of Lemiga Events and Brian Green of F&G Weddings have spent quality time putting together an intensive itinerary filled with interactive sessions including some of Atlanta's top Wedding Industry Professionals. I am most excited about the tablescape photo shoot each attendee gets to do with amazing photographers Janet Howard of Janet Howard Studio and Jeremy Harwell of Harwell Photography. What a fabulous start or enhancement to one's portfolio! Speaking of tablescapes, check out this behind the scenes video by Inije Photo from AWC's first photo shoot with Ross Oscar Knight. It's not too late to register at http://awcworkshop.eventbrite.com/.

Loyalty is Timeless!

During our tenth year of service, it is important for us to not only renew our commitment to excellence and quality service, but to also extend our heartfelt appreciation to those persons who make this anniversary celebration so very special. We have learned that true loyalty is timeless and therefore, we decided to embrace ten clients who have validated that very fact. During an intimate evening, we shared dinner, laughter, and memories of service. It was indeed a pleasure to share with these individuals outside of the confines of work. We wanted to ensure that we were able to show a token of appreciation to these ten wonderful people. However, we soon realized that in as much we wanted to bless them, their presence and belief in our vision blessed us beyond measure. The experience was truly purely wondrous inspiration!

StudioWed wins Best Gallery at Bridal Extravaganza Atlanta!

We are overwhelmed with excitement and humbled by the honor to share with you that we recently were awarded "Best Gallery" Award at the Bridal Extravangza of Atlanta. Our tablescape theme was inspired by the recent box office movie hit, "Black Swan" and our design team really raised the bar in the Atlanta wedding and event design industry. We had the privilege of working with Michelle Gainey of Lemiga Events, Danny Wilson of The Savage Garden, Tamara Gollob of I Do Linens and Sharon Alexander of Sweet Sensations. The red, black and white decor was creatively enhanced by each vendor with their own special touch.

We also participated in the "Love" themed tablescape that was inspired by a vision Toni McDaniel of Floral Couture Atlanta brought to us. Lemiga Events, I Do Linens and Sweet Sensations and I came together to design this lovely pink and purple modern, chic eventscape. This year bold, brazen color pallets are back so this was the perfect display for 2011 brides.

 

Kudos StudioWed Atlanta for another job well done!

Bride's Tea ~ The International Bridal Affair

Recently, we participated in the International Bridal Affair upon invitation from Bride's Tea with some of our fellow StudioWed vendors. We had the pleasure of working on an amazing design team including The Wedding Box, The Savage Garden and I Do Linens. We were certainly in awe of the creativity that went from a brainstorming conference call session to life at the show. Here are a few photos from the show provided to us by Eli Silva Photography. Thank you!
