Atlanta Bridal Bar Gala Opening Soiree

The A-List of the Atlanta wedding world walked the pink carpet into the gala opening soiree of the Atlanta Bridal Bar last night. We are so thrilled to be represented by the Bridal Bar along with some of our favorite Atlanta wedding planners, designers, florists, caterers and others who make weddings spectacular affairs. The Bridal Bar is a very chic salon where a bride can go to relax in luxurious surroundings while getting help planning all aspects of her wedding with displays from some of the top wedding vendors in Atlanta.

Lara Casey and our favorite Southern Weddings Magazine ladies, Whitney and Katharine, among the headliner out-of-town guests in for the gala:

The David Murray Weddings' Love Seat (a modern take on the old photo booth) made an appearance (check out the slideshow below). Our favorite duo in the Love Seat--- Rebecca Hansmann, owner of Bridal Bar Atlanta and Harmony Walton, founder of The Bridal Bar (Los Angeles, San Diego) who flew in from California for the soiree.

In this frame from the Love Seat, Kris Bush (Bachelorette Boutique), Rebecca and Harmony. The very sweet flowers decorating the backdrop behind The Love Seat are the creation of sensational wedding stylish Joy Thigpen.

Chic attire abounded with some absolutely amazing shoes to match (yes, that is David getting in on the footwear show)

To see the highlights of The Love Seat take a look at the slideshow link below. There were so many people at this event and visiting The Love Seat (at least 500 people turned out to help the Bridal Bar celebrate) that the slideshow loads a bit slowly, but it's worth the wait!

Clara+George | St. Michael's Maryland

Couture Dress Design: Angel Sanchez
Event Design: David Tutera

This is just a sneak peek of the wedding of an amazing couple who brought together family and friends for a magical evening in forest and field along side the Chesapeake.

Clara's family home on the Chesapeake was the setting for this beautiful event.

Clara was stunning in a gown designed by Angel Sanchez who was there to make sure all was abosolutely perfect.

David Tutera created a stunning enchanted forest. The design embraced all forms of natural elements and there are so many details to talk about we'll do a separate post later showing some of the absolutely enchanting decor.

Clara and George it was such a pleasure to document your lovely wedding weekend.

Love Note: Notte Sento film

This beautiful short film was made from 4,500 still photographs. Finally for us, a hybrid of what we
both love best--still photography and documentary film. More about it from the filmmakers on their
ilovecut website.
