AWP Bridal Show ~ 1.26.14

29 Jan

Thanks to all the brides who came out to visit us this past Sunday! We had such a great time meeting you all and are excited to be working with some of you already! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we and all of our fellow vendors did. We are proud to be part of the Athens Wedding Professionals network. Their website is a wonderful tool to start the wedding planning process as well as see past Athens weddings!

Here are just a few photos of our booth, showcasing a beautiful custom farmhouse table and gold chiavari chairs provided by our friends at Oconee Events and lovely purple and yellow spring florals in contrasting white bud vases by Gardenia Floral Design. Oh, and let’s not forget the linens. Lush, textured confetti overlays in champagne and honeydew covered our highboys and a neutral walnut bengaline runner topped the table, while wisteria lamour chair sashes brought it all together. Special thanks to Connie Duglin Linens for providing these gorgeous finishing touches. This table is just one example of what we can coordinate for you to make your wedding vision come together.

What a great family to work with on both the bride and groom’s side! This sweet couple tied the knot this past Fall with their ceremony in Galleria Two and a Station Style Reception in the Melting Point. What made this ceremony extra special was that it was officiated via the bride’s uncle who was stationed oversees, thanks to Skype! That was definitely a first for us, but probably not a last. We welcome your ideas in making your wedding personal to what’s important to YOU! Take a look through their beautiful photos.

Congrats to the Newly Engaged!

30 Dec

We are officially in the midst of engagement season, and with that comes a flurry of newly engaged couples to the Foundry Park Inn & Spa to check on dates and availability. Picking a date and a venue is one of the first most important things to decide on once you’re a bride-to-be.

Our Summer and Fall dates are filling up quickly, with new inquiries coming in daily. Be sure to visit our website to request more information on rates and availability for your potential wedding date! If you’re on a budget, consider holding your wedding on a Friday or a Sunday (or even a weekday!)

You’ll also want to think about a rough estimate of how many guests will be attending as well as the style of reception you’re planning, as we have several different event spaces that may work for your special day.

Whether it’s a casual and fun dance party at the Melting Point…

Cassie & Hunter ~ 8.10.13

10 Dec

Cassie & Hunter had a beautiful Summer reception and were a sweet couple to work with. Cassie had a vision that turned out beautifully in our Foundry Ballroom and we were so excited to see her plan come to fruition. Custom Farmhouse-style tables and coordinating crossback chairs complimented the room’s exposed overhead beams and exposed original brick. Tables and chairs were rented with ease from our friends at Oconee Rental & Events and vintage china set the tables. This combined with moss, ivory, and blush florals and numerous pillar candles displayed a truly a romantic experience.
