It was a beautiful weekend in Atlanta, Georgia. Allison Giddens of Weddings Imagined coordinated a wedding at The Piedmont Room overlooking Piedmont Park in Atlanta, Georgia.
Allison tells us:
The Piedmont Room was a great venue to work with! Lauren and her crew were terrific – her staff was attentive, and the switch from the ceremony to the reception in the same room was seamless. They adorned windows with tea lights, used beautiful ivory linens, and sat guests in chivari chairs.
Rebecca Bunch was their photographer, and she was terrific. She helped keep everyone at ease. She was aware of the timeline, but never rushed anyone or created any stress. I can’t wait to see the professional shots!
DJ Hal Mealor was great to work with. He was not only very familiar with the site, but he made sure that everyone had an absolute blast.
Publix did their cake, and it was a hit. The timelessness of the design was fitting with how clean the rest of the decor was.
Julie and Risa of Unique Floral Expressions did a great job with the floral decor. Incorporating purples and greens, classy arrangements were created for both the ceremony and the reception.
We Three Strings, headed by Linda Ratchford, played beautiful music during the ceremony and the cocktail hour. The talented trio created a beautiful ambiance that set the scene for the couple in love.

The bride had her programs designed and printed
Water-filled tall glass vases gave these blooms even more of a “punch”
Remember to keep hydraengas in water when they’re not being actively used in a bouquet! In between photos, keep a vase and water around – even if you’re not in outdoor heat.
The ceremony with the beautiful bride and charming groom
Escort cards with guest names told guests where to sit. Each table was named after a winery that the bride and groom had visited.
The guest book was a photo book of the bride and groom. They had been together for almost 8 years – so they had plenty of photos together!
Some tables lined the foyer so that guests could mingle during cocktail hour.
Flower petals and the couple’s cake cutter, cake server, and champagne glasses set the cake table.
Guest tables had menu cards, flower petals, jars of corks, centerpieces, and were pre-set with a delicious salad. The groom’s mother had made cookies and those were placed at each setting, too. Needless to say, there were no cookies left at the end of the night.
The estate table sat the bride, the groom, and their wedding party. Every guest at the reception had “the best seat in the house” to see the bride and groom.
Curly willow arrangements adorned in tea lights went from the ceremony to the estate table in just a few minutes, thanks to the hard work of the catering staff at The Piedmont Room
Guests saw the couple off with bubbles, and a flurry of flashes from photography ended the night. Congratulations, Erin and Scott!
