An Elegant Ballroom Wedding At The Ballantyne Hotel

I hate when I get behind on blogging - because keeping these gorgeous images to myself is so hard! But I’m back, and playing a bit of catch-up with some of our beautiful weddings!

Katie + Jack are two of the nicest, and most fun people I know. I absolutely LOVED being a part of their wedding planning! There was always an abundance of laughter at our meetings. An even though it’s been almost a year since we celebrated Katie + Jack, their wedding is still so fresh in my mind. It was an epic party, y’all!! I’m so excited to share some of my favorite photos from their gorgeous, perfect wedding day.

Our bride, Katie, choose the Ballantyne Ballroom at the Ballantyne Hotel for the reception. It was a classic ballroom, which is what she was looking for in a reception space. Katie’s style is elegant, feminine, and fun. With a color palette of blush, rose gold, ivory, and champagne, we transformed the Ballantyne Ballroom. I mean, just wait until you see the draping! (Thanks, Bob!) When we first started out planning, Katie mentioned that she wanted to host a great party. So we aimed to create an environment that would give our couple the epic party they wanted - that meant incredible food, a top notch bar, and hiring the best entertainment. Katie was all about the details, which is something I can very much appreciate. From custom welcome boxes to the delicious late night snack, every single detail guests experienced was a perfect reflection of Katie + Jack! And when the bride cries tears of joy saying “I’m just so happy” …. you know you did your job!

It was just the best day ever! I’m so grateful to have gotten the opportunity to be a part of Katie + Jack’s beautiful wedding day. And a huge thanks to our talented team of vendors who helped make this day so special and flawless!
