When bride Millicent first met with me, she described a fabulous wedding in the newly refurbished grand ballroom at the Hyatt Wynfrey Hotel in Birmingham Alabama.  The idea of her ceremony and reception sharing the same space was extremely appealing to her and this would also maximize money spent on her decor.    Her photographer Jerrod Brown is among a top team of wedding professionals to capture the days’ events.  Thank you Jerrod for all of these gorgeous images!

The day started with all of Millicent’s girls surrounding her in the Presidential Suite at The Wynfrey Hotel.  Each girl was given a special gift of floral printed robes to wear while getting ready and champagne flowed throughout the afternoon!

Beautiful bridesmaids surround our bride Millicent on the happiest day
The coolest guys…..
The ballroom is set with elegant linen chair covers of Ivory tied with a champagne satin sash
The aisle to the alter area lined with towers of white florals surrounded by a variety of candles and succulents
Alter area is draped with white sheer draping, beautifully lit with uplights and candlelights…  The fabulous lighting and draping is thanks to Andy Tolar with Design Productions LLC

The pre-function area at the The Hyatt Wynfrey Hotel was designed to be a                           comfortable lounge for the guests.  Lighting design by Design Productions LLC and the lounge furniture and decor all furnished by floral designer Mandy Majerik of Hot House Design   Studio

I love the details from this wedding

An absolutely gorgeous wedding cake with elegance and a little bit of bling!

With the ceremony complete and guests out in the pre-function area enjoying cocktails and hor’deorves, the staff and vendors were busy moving chairs and air walls and tables to transform this entire ballroom from ceremony/worship space to an elegant and enchanting reception.  Mandy Majerik and her team with Hot House Design Studio began moving our tall arrangements and candles first used as pew markers that framed our aisle to elegant table centerpieces.  This is an excellent use of all the floral design used throughout the entire event.

What was once our alter area for the ceremony now becomes a gorgeous frame around                                                                 the brides beautiful cake

Sweet treats for all the guests
