Featured in Jezebel Magazine

Chancey Charm could not be more excited to have another one of our weddings in Jezebel Magazine, featuring the beautiful images by Odalys Mendez! You can always find the latest trends for Atlanta in Jezebel.  This month they highlighted a couple of charming touches  that recent brides have used to make their day extra special!

I had the pleasure of working with Leah, Ted, and the Famous Oglethorpe for this June wedding.  When I first met Leah and Ted they said it was a must for them to have thier dog with them in the wedding.  I soon realized that he was more than a just  dog to Leah and Ted, he was their baby!  For the wedding Oglethrope was not only the best dressed K-9 Best Man in his grey bow tie but he accompanied Leah and I to many vendor meetings!

Leah and Ted are such a sweet couple and were such a joy to work with!  Leah was every wedding planners dream!  She wanted to personalize every detail of her Big Day.  Sarah and I were able to work with a great group of vendors that made Leah and Ted’s day just beautiful.  Thanks to Dunaway Gardens (Venue), Epting Events (Catering), Gertie Mae’s Floral Studio (Florals), Crush Rentals (Furniture Rentals), Cobalt Strings (Ceremony String Quartet), Formal Faces (Hair and Make Up) and the Andrew Brothers (Dueling Pianos) for always doing such an amazing job!  Be on the look out for more pictures and details from this beautiful vintage wedding.

Happy Planning!

Vendor Spotlight | Jenkins Rose Modern Paper

I would like to introduce a vendor that Chancey Charm has had the pleasure of working with on several of our weddings!  Jenkins Rose is a wonderful paper studio that can provide all things paper for your wedding.  Dondrea, the owner of Jenkins Rose works with each of her clients to create a one of a kind invitation suite for their wedding.  The invitation suite will include everything you and your guest need to be prepared, whether is it a RSVP card or directions to the venue she can make sure everything matches perfectly.  She offers a variety of paper options.  As well as both digital and letterpress printing for invitations and notecards.

While working with Dondrea I have gotten to see her love for her job.  In my opinion, a wedding invitation is a glimpse into the big day.  It sets the tone for the rest of the event.  Dondrea does a great job capturing the bride and groom’s style and putting it down on paper!

Another great thing about Dondrea is she does not stop with invitation design, she will be with you until the end!  She offers calligraphy and hand lettering for addressing your envelopes.  She can create a custom rubber stamp to help you personalize wedding favors and welcome bag treats.  She also provides a thank you note service.  So if you are a bride that is stressing out just by the thought of how many thank you notes you are going to have to write, Don’t Be!  Dondrea can work with you to make sure all of your guest receive a handwritten note to thank them for all of the beautiful gifts you received!

Happy Planning!

Top 5 Love Quotes to Swoon Over

A great quote is hard to find. Below is a compiled “Top 5” list of quotes and lyrics that I think would be a wonderful addition to your wedding details. Displaying love quotes throughout the many aspects of your wedding is a great way to add a personal touch and make your guests swoon with adoration.

5. “You are my constant.” (Desmond Hume, LOST)

I love this quote because it is simple and meaningful, and can be used in so many different areas of a wedding. It would be a great addition to reception décor as a visual display.

This line holds much meaning to those who are familiar with the television show, LOST. (Stemming from the episode where Desmond Hume travels back and forth through time, and needs a “constant” to latch on through different time periods, which leads him to realize that his life-long love, Penny is unquestionably his constant.)

 4. “I don’t have a choice, but I still choose you.” (Poison & Wine” by The Civil Wars)

Such an eloquent song lyric from the band The Civil Wars is perfect for display, quoted on invitations or programs.

3.“Love is never stationary. In the end, love doesn’t just keep thinking about it or keep planning for it. Simply put: love does.” (Bob Goff, Love Does)

From his book Love Does, Bob Goff pinpoints the truth behind love in action rather than in words. Guests would delight in this quote as a display on reception table centers or on programs, somewhere that they can soak up the meaning of it with ease.

2. “Tonight I’ll probably be looking at the moon which means I’ll be looking at you – literally and figuratively because it lays far to the south of this mountain top and that’s where you are. That takes care of the “literal” part – the “figurative” part requires no direction, I just see you in all the beauty there is because in you I’ve found all the beauty in my life.” (Ronald Reagan, I Love You, Ronnie)

The book I Love You, Ronnie is filled with precious handwritten letters from Ronald Reagan to his wife, Nancy. This quote was taken from a letter he wrote in 1954 from across the country, capturing the essence of his love for her no matter the time or place. This quote is perfect for a display at an evening wedding.

1. “Appreciative love gazes and holds its breath and is silent, rejoices that such a wonder should exist even if not for him, will not be wholly dejected by losing her, would rather have it so than never to have seen her at all.” (C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves)

C.S. Lewis gives a great depiction of genuine love in his book, The Four Loves. This quote makes the top of my list because it is so accurate and descriptive of the love that takes place within marriage. Guests would be pleased to read this on invitations, programs or on display.

By using quotes like these, you will certainly capture the attention of guests and allow them to remember the true meaning of why they are there – to celebrate love on your marriage day.
