Venue Spotlight: Atlanta Botanical Gardens

Photos above from Atlanta Botanical Garden

If you are searching for a wedding venue definitely consider the Atlanta Botanical Garden. I had the opportunity to do a tour, and not only do they have beautiful gardens to get married in, but they also have stunning indoor spaces as well.

Photos below are from me

Sara, Kim, Robyn and all the staff at the garden are so warm and inviting, I cannot wait to have the chance to do a wedding there!

Princess Pledge

A reader asked me to post the Princess Pledge from my daughter's princess tea party. So here you go!

Lovely Princesses all are we
In Princess gowns having Princess Tea
We have a gift that's precious and true

It is inside all of you

We are kind and gentle

As only a Princess can be

And we give to others royally

So where ever we are

Where ever we may be

Playing outside, climbing a tree
Lovely Princesses all are we

It's what's inside you and me

This Princess Pledge is from the Cranky Princess. Check them out if you're looking for a wonderful tea party for your little princess.

First up, Le Jardin Francais who showcased a fresh green and white palette. This is the wedding cake display

Today is a very special today as America prepares for the inauguration of our 44th President, Barack Obama. My grandfather is attending with my mother and I know this is a day he probably never thought he would see in his lifetime. Today is a day we can all be proud to be called American!
