One of my favorite parts about this job is getting to bring a couple’s vision for their big day to life. Designing weddings is my bread and butter, and I consider it an honor to be a part of something they’ll remember forever, plus I love weaving a couple’s unique story into that design, making each event something completely fresh and creative. The next best part is sharing some of those fabulous fetes with you guys, and I hope you find a little inspiration to illustrate your own love story.
This bride and groom, Tumini and Fabrice, are super professionals – she is an Industrial Engineer and he’s in finance. They started dating thanks to an introduction through a mutual friend, and after several years and one bad decision to cancel a night out at the botanical gardens (he was going to propose!), the two got married in a gorgeous, sunset-inspired wedding at The Ritz Carlton Atlanta.
Wearing a gorgeous dress by Inbal Dror from Mark Ingram Bridal Atelier and statement Jimmy Choos, the bride walked down an all-white aisle dappled in beautiful fall sunset hues. From rich reds and oranges to warm yellows, glimmering rose gold and pops of purple, it gave the bride and groom – and their guests – a panorama that took their breath away! To honor the memory of her father, the bride also included a special locket with his photo in her bouquet, ensuring that no detail was left untouched – seen or unseen.
The reception mimicked these sunset shades. Centerpieces mixed both texture and hue with roses, dahlias and hydrangeas – echoes of the beautiful bouquets from the ceremony. Sparkling accents reflected light and color across the room. A bold red installation displayed escort cards around the couple’s impactful custom monogram. The cake was a floral work of art, and the menu cards were almost prettier than the food was delicious. Most importantly, the bride and groom loved every inch of it – and had enough fun to prove it!
The evening was packed with dancing, mingling and good food – and after Tumini and Fabrice made their way to the getaway car, guests returned to the ballroom for surprise late-night snacks of sliders, chicken biscuits and fries before jumping back on the dance floor to keep dancing the night away. It was truly a night to have a great time soaking in the good moments – just like a gorgeous sunset. Cheers to Tumini and Fabrice!
