The Free Wedding IV

I couldn’t resist posting some details of the charming, Sun in My Belly, where the event was held. This isn’t a typical wedding venue which is why the team thought it would be the perfect place to throw Sam and Kaitlyn’s not so typical wedding. Sun in My Belly is not only an amazing, local restaurant here in Atlanta, but it also doubles as an event venue for couples who are looking for something a little more personal and low key.

They love bright earthy colors–cobalt blue, bright green and brown are their favorite. I decided to use these colors as the base of their palette and since the wedding would be held in May, I wanted to brighten everything up with a rainbow of happy colors. The more I heard Kaitlyn talk, I just saw their wedding being this, really laid-back, Blue Sky, Happy Day in May type of party…and it was!






When the idea of hanging paper from the ceiling was mentioned, it took all of a 2 seconds before everyone was on board with the idea. I mean how amazing are those paper streamers? So much more coming up…

Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
