Paper Me Wonderful

Purely Wondrous Inspiration

AWC Planners Workshop Speaker Spotlight: Brian Green {F&G Weddings}

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." I am so excited to be working alongside two of the most incredible wedding and event planners this side of heaven! Fast friends and passionate partners, The Atlanta Wedding Creative, brought us together to educate and inspire this industry with amazing design! One of my partners is Brian Green of F&G Weddings. Brian, known as Chief Dream Maker and Creative Visionary of F & G Weddings, is an award winning event planner with many years of experience in creating the most fabulous weddings for clients. I have embraced the honor of providing custom stationery for many of his brides over the last several years. Each time we meet I am totally blown away by the level of creativity he brings to each wedding. Brian is known for the "best friend experience" and I can truly attest to his passion and overwhelming desire for each client to have the most fabulous experience as they prepare for their big day. Wedding planners are not created equal. You may find some who concentrate on logistics, others who concentrate on design, but Brian is the complete package. He prides himself on taking your vision and creating that fabulous factor for every client in a way that speaks to who they are and what they want for their wedding day! With an amazing creative team to support his design and his ability to execute flawlessly, Brian Green works tirelessly to ensure love is always in the details.

Brian has a passion for educating and inspiring fellow associates in the wedding and event industry. You can hear him share his knowledge in an intimate setting and speak with him personally at the Atlanta Planner's Workshop at StudioWed happening February 18-19, 2012.

In the temporal world, man places significance on certain ages such as 1, 5, 10, 16, 21, 30, etc. In man's eye, these ages represent important changes in life or rather the entrance into a different realm. In God's world, we realize that every year is special and should be counted as a blessing. Today, Kennedy Renee, daughter of PWI's Founder and Owner, celebrates her ninth birthday and Papered Wonders, Inc. celebrates nine years of servicing the unique design and print needs of clients near and far. While man might not see this as a milestone, the staff at Papered Wonders, Inc., which includes Kennedy, acknowledges what an abundant blessing we have received. In an economy that changes by the hour, we are beyond blessed to continually be placed in a position to serve. Our company does not seek to boast rather we believe that others will be influenced when they hear our story. Nine years ago, we hoped that Papered Wonders, Inc. would be successful; however, nine years ago we could not have dreamt that God would have smiled upon us the way He has. Nine years ago, Lisa held in the palm of her hand a life that at the time was less than five pounds. She prayed that God would grow Kennedy in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ; but nine years ago, she did not know that God would fashion Kennedy to be the catalyst for a company that provides more than stationery. As Kennedy enters into this ninth year, she does so with the undying hope that life is full of possibilities and with God, nothing is impossible. As PWI enters into its ninth year of full service, we do the exact same.

Happy 9th Birthday Kennedy!

WUW Atlanta Launches Moulin Rouge Style!

Wish Upon a Wedding is the world’s first nonprofit wish granting organization providing weddings and vow renewals for couples facing terminal illness and serious life-altering circumstances regardless of sexual orientation.  Our organization offers couples a chance to enjoy a very special day, without any thoughts of existing health or other serious issues, while surrounded by their closest family and friends. By celebrating the courage & spirit of these couples, we help create lasting memories that will be cherished for years to come. It is our hope that others facing similar situations will find hope, strength, and the promise of eternal love.

The Atlanta Chapter, led by Brian Green of F&G Weddings, celebrated their launch party Moulin Rouge style at one of Atlanta's newest hot spots, The Mansion Elan. If you missed it, you missed a great party. There was great entertainment provided by an aerialist from Entanglement Circus Troop and a fabulous S'mores Bar by Peachy Treat Candy Buffet Bar.

Many thanks to all of our great sponsors. We certainly look forward to some great Atlanta weddings produced by all of the top vendors in the wedding industry. If you're interested in becoming a wish granter, visit the Wish Upon A Wedding National website. "Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God that he has given you." Deuteronomy 16:17
