new yumminess at simb

They're here!!! Our new dinner items have arrived and they are sure to please. Check out the amazing pictures Amber at Our Labor of Love shot of the new arrivals. 
Is your mouth watering? We don't blame you... the sweet tea brined grilled pork chop is so good, it'll make you want to slap somebody. Served over sweet potato hash with a dried peach mustard butter and our spicy mojo collards, this pork chop is out of this world.  If that doesn't do it for you, the dry-aged, pepper-seared beef tenderloin is so tender it's going to knock your socks off. Plus, our house-made shoestring potatoes are: A. adorable, B. the perfect compliment to the beef, C. amazing with a little of that gorgonzola cream on them, or D. all of the above. We'll let you decide for yourself...
We've taking the best of our Supperclub menus and adding them to our dinner menu beginning this Friday. So if you missed out on the scrumptious roasted spaghetti squash with a puttanesca sauce of tomatoes + kalamata olives + fresh goat cheese, you are in luck! Who could forget the braised pork belly with parsnip puree and a balsamic glaze? Nom nom nom. We are also introducing Alison's daily jar, where Ali will feature fresh, delicious flavors, like her grandmother's "nippy dip," an amazing avocado + cream cheese + goat cheese dip that is a perfect way to start your meal. Plus, the ever popular catering goodie, fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese, is making its way to our permanent menu.
The new menu is available this Friday, so make you reservations today!

Love in full bloom--Caitlin + Nelson

Gorgeous flowers coming to life all around, warm weather for strolling through the gardens, and the spectacular display of hanging orchids are what make the Atlanta Botanical Garden + weddings a perfect fit. Spring is an amazing time of year for weddings at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, and we are always tickled pink to be a part of incredible spring weddings here, just like Caitlin + Nelson's breathtaking wedding celebration. Caitlin + Nelson are a gorgeous couple, and their wedding fit them to a T: soft and romantic, polished and elegant, and tons of fun.
The happy couple married in the Rose Garden, where guests cooled off with pre-ceremony beverages. The Atlanta Botanical Garden provided plenty of beautiful backdrops for Caitlin + Nelson's loving moments. Tulip, one of our favorite florists and fellow member of Atlanta Wedding Loft, used fresh orchids and tulips to bring the spring flowers from outdoors, inside Day Hall, where guests ate, drank and danced the night away.
  Caitlin + Nelson's menu was versatile with just a smidge of tradition. Guests enjoyed blood orange + honey glazed halibut with seasonal succotash, balsamic glazed free range chicken breast with caramelized vidalia onions, and pepper seared filet of beef with a burgundy demi glaze, plus a slew of salads including the fanta se salad with butter lettuces  + haas avocado + Valencia oranges + spicy pecans + jicama with ancho chile vinaigrette. Yummmmmmy! Altmix photography captured the elegant simplicity of this unforgettable wedding, which we just can't get enough of, and you can check out more photos from this classic wedding (including Caitlin's AMAZING dress) on their blog.
Caitlin + Nelson's is a timeless wedding, and we will be remembering their day for years to come. We were thrilled to receive a letter of recommendation from the lovely bride, and wanted to share her kind words about SIMB being apart of their wedding. Congratulations Caitlin + Nelson and many thanks.



It's the most wonderful time of the year

We feel like a kid on the night before Christmas... The Not Wedding is this Thursday, and we couldn't be more excited about being a part of it again, for the third year in a row!
What's The Not Wedding, you ask? The Not Wedding is the ultimate inspiration for brides (and grooms!) to be.
Tell you more?? With pleasure.
The Not Wedding is a fake wedding with all the fixins of the best wedding you've ever been caught day-dreaming about. It all starts with a ceremony full of real emotion, because each year the "bride + groom" are a real married couple. Too sweet. Of course, what wedding is complete without a delicious meal-- brought to you be yours truly. We'll be serving our miso glazed  salmon, grilled free range chicken with a bourbon + pecan butter, and our fabulous wild mushroom ravioli topped with truffled mushrooms and a brown butter sauce. Plus, there are sooooo many unbelievable vendors collaborating this year-- amazing vintage rentals from Four Inch Fold to behold, gorgeous florals from some of the best in the biz, adorable  accessories that will be the cherry on top to your big day. The party really gets going when The A-Town A-List's music gets everyone out of their seats. Pinterest, beware, The Not Wedding is going to make you rethink what a wedding could be, check out some photos from previous years to get an idea of what we mean.

Pinch us, we're dreaming. And you could be too if you join us Thursday March 8th at Ambient Plus Studios for The Not Wedding! Find about more information about the participating vendors and buy tickets now--you don't want to miss this.


Spring has Sprung--Shana + Rob

Spring is in the air, and it make us think of pastel palettes, fresh flowers and, of course, weddings. This wedding is an oldy, but a goody. When we met Shana + Rob, we knew this was going to be an amazing event.  Shana is our favorite type of client-- one who knows exactly what she wants and has a graceful way of conveying that to all of her partners. This wedding was elegant without being uptight, dramatic without being over the top, and man-- did it ooze personality. 

As the venue, Mason Murer Fine Art fit Shana + Rob's wedding like a glove, fusing a funky urban modern vibe with an artistic elegance and charm.  The exquisite chuppah and florals designed by Susan and Steve over at the Bold American decor team.  And the absolutely stellar photography by Our Labor of Love keeps us looking at these images, time and time again.
The small details of this wedding are some of our favorites, hello-- did you see those adorable cake toppers?!? And the custom paper products + great graphics were done by Erin Dangar of Dangar Design. But the cherry on top of this super sweet wedding was the bridesmaids' performance of "Single Ladies" by Beyonce. Everyone went wild and we won't soon forget their well rehearsed routine.  
Their menu was a southern sophisticated dream featuring low county shrimp and grits, Alison's famous meatloaf sliders, coca-cola glazed ham and house-made biscuits. YUM! Shana + Rob's big day was the combination of creativity and class, wrapped up into one of our favorite weddings EVER! Though the happy couple doesn't live in Atlanta, we've recently reconnected with Shana's parents for her mother's birthday party. We just love it when things come back around like that.
