We’re rounding out the week with a stunning luxe wedding, planned and designed by our fabulous #PrettyPerfectPartner Lemiga Events! Ashley and Lanre were married on a beautiful spring day at the Biltmore Ballrooms in Atlanta. The bride wore a stunning Vera Wang gown – the same one worn by Chrissy Teigen. And the groom was dapper in a striking custom blue tux. The bridal party got ready at the W Atlanta Midtown where they took photos before heading to the wedding venue. It was so hard to choose our favorite shots from this stunning set by Janet Howard Studio:
The ceremony took place in the Imperial ballroom. The floral design for the ceremony was breathtaking. The entrance banister was covered in blush and ivory flowers. The altar backdrop was draped in ivory satin fabric with a 10′ lush floral wall in front of it. This created a picturesque setting for our couple to exchange their vows. Following the ceremony, Ashley and Lanre posed for photos with their bridal party and had fun re-creating the infamous Solange Knowles wedding party photo. Then the bride and groom had a few quiet moments alone for photos together. The bride carried a dramatic cascading orchid bouquet and the groom wore a white orchid boutonniere.
The Georgian ballroom glowed in romantic candlelight for the reception. “We used a mix of champagne hued linen in several different textures” said Michelle Gainey of Lemiga Events. “A grand wedding party estate table made for a sensational focal point in the room. We used mirrored estate tables that reflected the candlelight and dramatic lush floral centerpiece with hanging crystals. Each chair was finished with ivory chiffon fabric and rhinestone buckles. Following dinner, we transformed the ceremony room into a fun and inviting lounge for cake and dancing. Guests were amazed at the unexpected return to the same room that was once light and bright, now washed in striking fuchsia pink with plenty of swanky furniture to lounge on. And to top it all off, a 9 tier wedding cake masterpiece filled with sugar flowers by For Goodness Cakes, was placed in front of the 10′ flower wall. Once the party started, Ashley and Lanre changed into traditional Nigerian attire and joined their guests on the dance floor. This was truly an unforgettable wedding celebration!”
