Emily + Jim

After all of these years, the variety of weddings that come our way still surprises us sometimes. From bold and dramatic, to quirky and fun, and everything in between, our brides and grooms are all over the spectrum. Emily + Jim's Atlanta Botanical Garden wedding is simple and sweet, in the very best way

There are a ton of elements that we love about this wedding, but one of our absolute favorites? It might be that lavender bouquet. We're a sucker for anything lavender, but that just made us SWOON!  Check out more details of Emily + Jim's "best day ever!" below, shot by Andrew Thomas Lee Photography. And after you're done checking out his photos from Emily + Jim's celebration, jump over to his blog or site to see more of this talented man's genius work! 
Of course, where would a wedding be without a wedding planner? We were lucky enough to call Ashley Baber Emily + Jim's coordinator, a serious vet on the Atlanta wedding scene who always has her ducks in a row, creating a stress free occasion for all involved. Emily and her girls' bouquets, and the floral arrangements were done by Unique Floral Expressions, and the simple cake topped with rosemary was a Highland Bakery creation. After the I Dos and the dances, guests took advantage of Smilebooth, there to snap tons of silly photos through the night. What a great vendor team! Some other fun facts that Emily passed along to us: The invitation included artwork done by the groom himself, and were letter pressed by the matron of honor, talk about sentimental meaning.

Emily + Jim stuck to a cocktail themed menu, featuring finger foods and small plate stations throughout Day Hall. The Atlanta Station included coca-cola glazed ham served with miniature sweet potato biscuits + grainy mustard, our mac n' cheese (which if you haven't tried before, is out of this world!!), and a goat cheese torta with sundried tomatoes + basil pesto + pine nuts. The Carving Station featured a prime rib of beef with yellow onion confit + horseradish sauce, our fanta se salad with valencia oranges + avocado + spicy pecan with chile vinaigrette, and grilled asparagus with lemon butter drizzle. And finally the French Quarter Station served up low country shrimp + sausage over three cheese grits, garlic + shallot sautéed haricot vert with grape tomatoes + toasted pine nut, and beef steak tomatoes + red onion + charred corn with balsamic vinegar. And to round out Highland Bakery's cake, Emily + Jim went for a super fun confection... COTTON CANDY! The inner child in everyone could not get enough.
What a fun night and what a lovely couple. Wishing Emily + Jim, and all of SIMB newlyweds a very happy 1st married holiday season together!
