The bride on her special day: 

“Alex and I were pretty lost when it came time to plan the wedding. Using online wedding tools, we determined the budget and logistics; however, we needed more guidance. My mother suggested creating a theme. After tossing around a few ideas, we settled on a movie theme. We love going to the movies and it was only fitting that we share what we love on our special day.

“From then on, our wedding planning was fairly easy. We ditched the cheesy movie themes of the past and brought out a more elegant, yet fun way of presenting our theme. For instance, instead of the traditional wedding program, we decided to write our program in the form of a script which coincided perfectly with the ceremony; instead of table numbers to seat our guests, we used miniature movie posters that represented the movies we saw together; we used Photoshop to superimpose our faces on our favorite movie posters which were posted around the cocktail area; and our guests were treated to favors of mini-popcorn boxes filled with delicious gourmet popcorn. 

“My best friend, owner of Ciao Bella Weddings, was also very instrumental in sharing ideas and making our ideas come to life. We had a goal that our wedding must reflect us, and we feel that is exactly what we accomplished. The venue was perfect, flowers radiant, and the small touches of our movie theme were perfect.”

Most Memorable Part of the Day

“Having our entire family present in one room made it memorable. Our friends and family flew to Atlanta from various states, countries and even continents just to celebrate with us! We could really feel all of the love in the room.”
