As event planners, we see lots and lots of weddings. This particular wedding however, had tons of truly unique personal touches and incorporated so much of what was near and dear to the couple’s hearts: family.

The bride and groom live in Washington DC, so the bride’s mom handled all of the details here in Atlanta, while the bride and groom helped from afar. Mom knew that the couple wanted a real party, so a party is what they got!


The celebration kicked off with the ceremony, held at the Emory Conference Center. The bride’s dad built the chuppah himself, and all of the family was involved in the ceremony, so everyone really felt a part of Cara and Matt’s special day. The ceremony itself was even officiated by the bride’s aunt, and despite the extremely windy conditions, her touching message was heard throughout the crowd.


After the ceremony, it was time to move on to the party! The bride’s grandmother was a painter, so Cara thought it would be wonderful to incorporate some of her work on the placecards. Mom had even more special touches, and instead of a traditional guest book, she had old vintage postcards laid out for everyone to sign.









The Wedding Players provided beautiful ceremony music, while DJ Lethal Rhythms made sure this party was a PAR-TAY, with great music that really kept the crowd dancing the night away.


Every bit of this special day was captured by the talented Patti Covert of Scensations Photography.


This was truly a unique event, and we were so happy to have been able to witness this true display of love, laughter, and above all, family.
