A Legendary Summer…

On January 24, 2010, we were part of a bridal show at the Four Seasons Hotel in Midtown Atlanta. The Bridal show was titled “A Bride for all Seasons” and we choose to represent the summertime (so appropriate for us Atlanta natives)!!

We have all heard that the “HOT” color this season is a bright, canary yellow. One of our talented Event Designers, Amy Saltzman, created a beautiful canary toned summer wedding that she called “A Legendary Summer.” Amy took this to a new level using fresh lemons, a plethora of yellow Forsythia branches, beautiful Sunflowers and soft yellow Oncidium Orchids.

The mixture of all these yellow elements along with green moss, White Dendrobium Orchids, Hydrangea and gorgeous burch trees was the perfect combination to make you feel like you were in a summer bliss!!! For more photos taken by the lovely Nancy Jo McDaniel, enjoy this gorgeous slide show http://www.njmphotography.com.temp.livebooks.com/data/web/ALegendarySummer/index.html.

We would also like to thank Heather from Atlanta Occassions for mentioning A Legendary Event in her blog post “Inspired by this: yellow, yellow, yellow!” She commented that we acheived our summer creation with “flying YELLOW colors”. Thanks for the compliments Heather!!


Atlanta, September 17th―I wanted to take a moment to say that I hope you had a great summer and to share some of the exciting developments that have been taking place here at A Legendary Event.

We’ve recently added some great new team members. First of all, Charles Barrett is our new Executive Pastry Chef. Prior to coming to Legendary, Barrett was Executive Pastry Chef at The Cobb Galleria. We can’t wait for you to see (and taste) some of his deliciously innovative dessert creations.

We’re also excited to have Leah Stephens as the newest member of our Catering Sales Team. Leah accepted the position of Catering Sales Manager last month and has already hit the ground running. Of course, most of you already know, Sophia Lin. Sophia has been promoted to the role of Senior Sales Manager. Sophia has worked at A Legendary Event for approximately three years and brings a wonderful winning spirit and charisma to the team.

Also new on board is Ashley Miller, Kate Bradley, and Jeffrey Powell. Ashley Miller has accepted the role of Junior Design Event Manager. Kate Bradley has joined our team as Sales Assistant. Jeffrey Powell is our new Senior Design Sales Manager. Jeffrey has years of event design business, most recently running his own company, Jeffrey Blooms. He also appears on Style Network’s “Who’s Wedding Is It Anyway?”

Just a reminder that the holiday season is just around the corner (90 days to be precise). We’d love to help you celebrate by providing you with catering and/or design for your holiday party or gathering. Believe me, it will be here before we know it! So, give us a call so we can put you on the calendar.

Happy Holidays!
