As Seen on Style Me Pretty: JCT Kitchen Wedding

As seen on Style Me Pretty…

When tradition and elegance meet a touch of whimsy that’s when real magic happens.  This Atlanta wedding by Kate-Belle Photography is an urban chic dream with a pretty-as-can-be bride and buckets of organically stylish details.  It has everything we love about weddings from this great Southern city – sophistication and grace, loads of charm and a lovely natural feel.  There are so many details to gawk over so head to to the full gallery to see them all!

From the bride… Curtis and I both moved to Los Angeles after college to work in the entertainment industry. At the time, Curtis was working for the actor Hugh Jackman and I was working for the restaurateur/entrepreneur Sam Nazarian of SBE Entertainment. A mutual friend of ours suggested that we meet, which is typical for executive assistants in the industry. Thinking nothing of it, we got together for drinks after work one day at the Thompson Hotel in Beverly Hills. Three hours, a bottle of wine, and a bizarre number of similarities later, we knew we were meant to be. After a job change and a six-month long distance relationship, Curtis whisked me away to Atlanta by proposing with my family in tow over a Thanksgiving holiday in the North Georgia mountains.  

Both of our families are scattered across the nation, so we decided to have everyone come to us for the big day. Atlanta has the world’s busiest airport so we figured it wouldn’t be too difficult for our love ones traveling from afar to attend. We wanted the wedding to evoke a rustic sophistication and to focus heavily on the divine cuisine that JCT Kitchen offers. The evening was elegant, organic, and whimsical – just what we had hoped for. Two non-traditional elements to the wedding that I conjured up were our smoked salt favors, which were made for us by one of our favorite Atlanta chefs, Chris Hall of Local Three (where our rehearsal dinner was held), and our cheesecake cake. Two elements that Curtis contributed were a surprise gift of one dozen six-foot-tall “long” stem roses flown in from Brazil and our send-off in a red helicopter.  And thus, my fairytale ending came true!

Piedmont Park Wedding… Perfection

Le Bonne Fleur loves to share our gorgeous brides, and this one is no exception. Meagan glowed at her elegant affair at The Piedmont Garden Tent at Park Tavern on Piedmont Park. The bride’s bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets and table centerpieces were lush with amazing pink peonies, garden roses, spray roses, hydrangea and  ranunculus. The men adorned boutonnières of simple and classic ranunculus. My Life Photography was there that day to capture all those special moments.

A Royal Bouquet

The Royal Wedding was nothing less than spectacular. An event that all alive on Friday will remember. “From  impeccable Alexander McQueen gown to her Cartier tiara, Duchess Catherine Middleton pulled out all the stops to accessorize for her Friday, April 29, 2011 nuptials to Prince William.”

As a floral designer, I could not help but be excited to see what flowers the future Queen of England would choose to carry. “When it came to her bridal bouquet, Middleton, 29, enlisted designer Shane Connolly, the florist who decked out their Westminster Abbey venue with eight maple trees.

Comprised of a shield-shaped wired bouquet of myrtle, lily-of-the-valley and hyacinth, the bouquet “draws on the traditions of flowers of significance for the Royal Family, the Middleton family and on the Language of Flowers,” according to a statement released on the Official Royal Wedding Web site.

As a nod to her new husband, Middleton included ‘sweet William’ blooms. Keeping with royal tradition, stems from a myrtle planted by Queen Victoria in 1845 were also added.

Middleton’s bouquet was a stark contrast to that of the late Princess Diana, William’s mother. For her 1981 nuptials to Prince Charles, Diana selected a cascading arrangement of three orchid varieties.

After celebrating with her new husband Friday, Middleton is expected to leave her bouquet on the grave of the First World War soldier, a tradition started by the Queen Mother in 1923.” 

A beautiful bouquet, simple, stylish, elegant and suited perfectly to match her Alexander McQueen dress. Kate’s bouquet encompasses tradition, timeless elegant and a personal touch. A perfect ensamble if you ask me!

Southern Vintage Wedding Perfection

Leigh Ann & Miles enjoyed the most gorgeous Atlanta wedding on the most perfect spring day on April 2, 2011 at The Trolley Barn in Inman Park. Jason Travis Photography shot the day to perfection, capturing the designs of Atlanta Floral Designer Le Bonne Fleur ,some great quiet moments and all those little details. 

The couple envisioned a vintage wedding, highlighting the handmade crafts the Bride and recruited friends made for the event. Colorful paper pinwheels were incorporated throughout and were such lovely, whimsical touches. Honey pots favors were also left on each table for the guests to take with them.

Le Bonne Fleur used the vintage inspired florals and created colorful, vintage bridal bouquet, boutonnières and centerpieces using a variety of texture, shapes, and color flowers to capture the look and feel. 

 The mixed peony bouquets also included lilac, dusty miller , ranunculus, hellebores, parrot tulips and many other florals.

The Bride collected blue mason jars and milk glass from friends and antique shops around the city to use for the mixed floral centerpieces.

Special details such as the Bride’s custom broach made this unique event. 

And last but not least, don’t forget about the handsome groom and groomsmen in their garden rose boutonnières by Le Bonne Fleur.

THE STORY: About a year ago, 32-year old Omoro was diagnosed with Chronic Heart Failure. The two had just returned from a trip to visit family, and were beginning to talk marriage. Omoro was saving up for an engagement ring, and they’d even gone to peruse their options. They were on top of the world, and all it took was a single trip to the VA hospital for it all to come crashing down. Omoro’s heart was in such bad condition that without immediate intervention, he was told that he wouldn’t survive a year… click HERE to read more

As seen on Ruffled Blog: Valentine’s Day Love

As seen on Ruffled Blog Le Bonne Fleur and friends constructed this dreamy, love-filled engagement shoot…


If you’re a dress fiend (like me) and romantic (like me) then you’re gonna find plenty to drool over in this inspiration shoot sent to us by some wickedly talented folks. That super-light blush pink is such a nice compliment to any wedding palette. And maybe it’s just us romantics, but I find Valentine’s Day to be inspirational year round… which is why I always have heart-lollipops just an arm’s length away. Thanks to Ashley Baber for styling and sending it over and Jeremy Harwell for photographing!
