Mar + Et’Chane { 9. twenty. 08 }

Detail Extraordinaire!  This wedding was incredi ble.  Mar has an impecable knack for the little (and big) personal touches that really make a wedding unique.  When I met her and Et’Chane almost a year ago, I knew immediately that there was nothing ‘usual’ about them.  As individuals, they each have a strong sense of style and as a couple, they are just dynamic!  The wedding was held at the Grand Hyatt in Buckhead and when I arrived the bridal suite was filled with energy, excitement and anticipation.  Nicola Horton of Your Agenda Events kept everything  running smoothly.

A stunning gown by Rivini and shoes, with no less of a statement, by Gucci.

  Mar choose beautiful gifts for the wedding party, jewelry for bridesmaids and flower girl, embroidered hankercheif for dad and cuff links for Et’Chane.

During the preparations, Et’Chane texted chivalrous, romantic messages to each of Mar’s attendants and they came to her and read each message. Way to raise the standard, Et’Chane!
On Occasions of Atlanta did a beautiful job on the flowers. The Ceremony was gorgeous and the ballroom looked insane!

 This is Mar’s best friend (kind of like a brother) Jesse.  He was a tremendous help during the entire day, and here he is trying to keep it together after seeing Mar for the first time with her veil on.  It’s OK, Jesse!  Crying makes great photos!

I love the light here. We stepped outside and stood under the awning with the doors open behind to show some ambient light.

Et’Chane Javar Towers.  Smooth. Stylish. Loves to dance. Loves to cook. { Click here if you are in the market for a personal Chef!}  A very personable graduate from Moorhouse University with a great bunch of friends. What stands out more than any of these things is that he is undeniably and absolutely head over heels in love with Mar. It’s visible even from afar.

A beautiful detail that honored loved ones who have passed away. Orchids were carried in the processional and tucked into the Chuppah.

A tender moment as Et’Chane sees Mar coming down the aisle.

There was a wonderful reverence during the Ceremony. There were tears, laughter, poetry readings and a beautiful exchange of vows. I love this shot of one of the Groomsmens hands.

Mr & Mrs. Towers. I love all the little point and shoot cameras!

There are so many pictures from this wedding that tell a little part of the story. Mar and Et’Chane just sizzle on the camera. It’s been so hard for me to narrow it down to post this blog entry. I just love you two! Congratulations!!

The Logo repeated throughout the event was an adorable ME.

Event Drapery  and Tabletoppersturned an ordinary ballroom into an extavagant wonderland. 2 corners of the ballroom were turned into chic lounges complete with couches and candlelight.

I love the name of the margaritas. How clever!

There was definately a first at this wedding as Mar and Et’Chane told me last year that they really wanted a photo booth. I’m always game for “firsts” so I brought some props and set up in the hallway during the reception. Amanda Phillips agreed to come and be in charge and she had a blast getting crazy with the guests. Everyone got in on the action and all had a great time.

This is one of my favorites. Nothing like a surprise shot of silly string in the face!


There is so much more I could say but I have to stop somewhere.   It was just a wonderful wedding and I am so grateful to have been a part of it.  All the best to you both, Mr & Mrs. Towers.  You guys ROCK!
