“The Best Day Ever!” was the perfect theme for Rick and Nicole’s dream wedding at the beautiful Callanwolde Fine Arts Center in Atlanta. This venue set the tone for the romantic elegant wedding they envisioned but it also had a casual fun vibe. One of the special and fun highlights on their wedding day was the filming of “Neighbors 2” at the venue including a visit from Zac Efron with the bride! The film crew wrapped up just before all vendors arrived for set-up that day. One of the perks of having a movie filmed on-site was $6000 worth of gorgeous roses on the Grand staircase – stunning!!! As guests entered they were lead to the Music Room to sign the guest book on a table filled with pictures of family members, a canvas of their engagement photograph a gift from the photographer and a vintage suitcase for gifts and cards provided by the groom.
The ceremony space in the Grand Hall was simply beautiful with florals on the Grand Staircase from movie set and other florals framing the ceremony site. After the sweet and emotional ceremony guests enjoyed signature cocktails and passed appetizers on the Veranda. The reception in the Courtyard had was a perfect combination of black and gold! The dining tables were dressed in rich black satin crinkle linens, victorian gold satin napkins, beautiful florals. A gorgeous gold glitz linen highlighted the beauty of their wedding cake. Nicole and Rick added many of their own personal touches: Gold table numbers and place cards, traditional Jordan almonds at each place setting from the bride and groom, a cigar bar and and and signature cocktails for their guests. Guests dined on delicious menu of Chicken Piccata, Pesto Crusted Salmon, Wood Grilled Vegetable Display, Classic Caesar Salad, Baby Spinach Salad with Crumbled Goat Cheese, Candied Walnuts and Dried Cranberries tossed in Champagne Vanilla Vinaigrette and a chef attended pasta station. After dining there were many heartfelt toasts and lots of dancing by all! The end of this very special day was a glow-stick send-off for our bride and groom!
