Jennifer + Ray

We think we might be about to blow your mind. Because for the first time, in a very long time, we're featuring a wedding where we did more than just the catering. That's right, we're not a one trick pony, and when the amazing Jennifer + Ray came to us for a consultation, we knew it was a perfect match. Not only between them, but for us to provide coordination, flowers, and design for this lovely little laid back couple. The creative guru Max LeBlanc rolled up his sleeves and pulled every swatch from the book to create Jennifer's dream textures and color palates, and just like that SIMB took the reigns of Jennifer + Ray's wedding. Our first wedding at Heritage Sandy Springs was a big project, but we're pretty pleased with the outcome, and with Amanda Summerlin behind the lens, we've got the photos to let you see what we mean.
Jennifer + Ray's wedding flowers were designed with an ethereal and elegant, yet casual, feel in mind. They were married under "cloud" of manzanita branches, garden roses, ranunculus, anemones and hanging lanterns. For her bouquet, Jennifer wanted a soft, snowy, loose arrangement, wrapped in a personal scarf for an heirloom effect. Our always ingenious Alison Lueker hit the nail on the head and delivered the day-of, finding the perfect balance between elegant romance and casual whimsy with Jennifer + Ray's floral designs.
When it came to the food for their festivities, Jennifer + Ray went for a buffet style dinner and butler passed hors d'oeuvres. Fried green tomatoes with horseradish cream sauce and caramelized onions, and miniature New England crab cakes topped with ancho chili aioli were passed throughout the garden are after the ceremony. Tomato napoleon with fresh basil and buffalo mozzarella with a green goddess dressing, and coriander + cumin grilled shrimp served curried mango sauce were part of the dinner menu. Along with grain mustard and aged balsamic pork tenderloin and roasted cauliflower + dried cherries + toasted pine nuts. After dinner Jennifer + Ray cut their creative cake from Cakes by Darcy, delicious desserts from our pastry department were passed around, and guests broke it down on the dance floor, until the happy couple was swept away into the night.
What a special celebration! And we hear this happy duo became a trio not too long ago! Check out Amanda Summerlin's most recent photo shoot with Jennifer + Ray! Congratulations, and a million thanks for letting SIMB play such a big role in your wedding day!
