From the photographer…Kim & Brian’s wedding was an elegant affair held at the historic Biltmore Ballrooms in Atlanta, Georgia. Their beautiful church ceremony was followed by a trolley ride with the bridal party to the reception. Their guests were greeted with a cocktail hour in the lobby with lounge areas, drinks and appetizers. Before being ushered into the historic ballroom, guests passed the escort card table full of “match”-sticks with flags displaying their table numbers. A sweet sign read, “We found our match, now you find yours!”. The table also displayed an initial logo of “KB”, engagement photos and a display of floral arrangements and candles. The elegant ballroom with it’s carved plasterwork ceiling doesn’t need much in the way of extra decor, but Kim & Brian kept it simple and modern. A palette of whites including blush and ivory were the centerpiece of the reception scheme. Beautiful white and ivory arrangements in silver vessels adorned most tables, while the head table held elegant sprays of flowers in tall, clear vases. Candles, candles, candles were everywhere and really added to the ambiance of the room as well as the professional lighting that lit the old columns and intricately carved ceiling. Guests were greeted at each placesetting with a favor of chocolates in a box with a wax seal displaying the logo initials of Kim & Brian. They also received a “thank-you” note along with their menu card from the couple. After dinner, guests partied on the dancefloor and enjoyed a late-night snack before the couple was ushered out by the Florida State fight song to their awaiting Rolls Royce getaway car.
