It is time now to take a journey back through the recent past, and give our fans a behind-the-scenes look into The 7th Atlanta NotWedding. Atlanta is the city where it all started, and we’re always stoked to be there. Scroll on to see how our 7th rodeo turned out! We have a feeling you’ll love what you see.
Step 1: Inspiration
At the beginning of every NotWedding event process, we provide an inspiration board for our participating vendors. The Atlanta team got hit with a sweet and soft-toned beauty.
Step 2: Introduce Alfie & Sean!
Alfie & Sean are very close to the heart of The NotWedding. Sean is the man responsible for the moving spoken word poem that we use as the ceremony piece at all our events! We were so honored to have him and his bride (the sweetest and most gentle couple EVER) to represent us and renew their vows at our 7th Atlanta event. Sean even surprised us all with an extra poem to deliver to Alfie on the altar. Here’s a link to their adorable Save the Date shoot by Morning Light by Michelle Landreau.
Step 3: Bonding
For this event’s Rehearsal Dinner, we brought all our fabulous vendors together at Sun In My Belly Café, who was also our caterer for the main event! This is a great time for our vendors to get to know each other and become one big, happy family before they team up to create their NotWedding experience.
Step 4: Crowd Teaser
A handful of our wonderful vendors got together at Madison Oaks to put on a lovely bridal shower styled shoot. The shoot, photographed by Love Like Weddings, was featured on Style Me Pretty, so head to their post to see the full gallery.
Step 5: The main event!
