Imperial Events had the opportunity to work with several of Atlanta’s amazing wedding professional during our style shoot this spring. We had our eye set on a hidden gem located in the prestigious Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta as our location for the shoot. This hidden gem is the Doubletree by Hilton Atlanta Buckhead, which is a full-service boutique style hotel with a classic southern charm. They offer 230 guest rooms, a lovely ballroom which accommodates up to 200 guest seated and complimentary shuttle service within 3 mile radius that is surrounded by some of Atlanta hottest attractions.  The linen for our style shot was provided by no other than the fabulous I Do Linens. We selected their gray linen with yellow napkins to accent the mercury and silver decor’ and yellow floral arrangements created by 2000 A.D. Inc.  We could never finish our design without having our tablescape sweeten by Sweet Seats of Atlanta, who provided their clear chiavari chairs and silver chair cushions to seal the deal. The fabulous wedding gown worn by our model was provided by Ivory Bridal and Formal Wear located in Atlanta. The Kitty Chen Couture Roslyn gown is available in ivory or white. This princess style ball gown has a beautiful beaded bodice and mesmerizing tulle on the skirt. When brides try on this dress all they want to do is twirl!  Also a Big Thank You goes to TheaMarie owner of Makeup by TheaMarie for providing our model with flawless makeup and Denise Gober owner of D&G Hair Artistry for making our model hair fabulous. To all the wedding professionals that help to make this shot successful, thank you very much.  Last but never least all photo credit goes to Made You Look Photography, thank you for all of your hard work and making all of our images flawless.
