A Legendary Event Recognized by the 21st Annual Allie Awards and the AJC

Exciting things are happening at A Legendary Event!  We are pleased to announce we received the Allie Award for Best Team Effort on April 10th. The Allie Awards is our industry’s annual ceremony presented by the Atlanta Chapters of the International Special Events Society and the National Association of Catering Executives. The Award recognized our collaboration with Ashley Baber Weddings, Event Drapery, The Magnum Companies Ltd., and Event Rentals Unlimited on a recent wedding. We would like to thank the Atlanta Chapters of ISES and NACE for this prestigious recognition.

At this legendary, award winning wedding, our team worked together to orchestrate the planning process of the ceremony. This included the selection of the venue and vendors, such as the stationer, calligrapher, design team, and beyond. A massive truss structure covered the 24’x24’ dance floor and wowed guests with its rotating lights anchored on top. We always strive to go above and beyond for our clients, and we are honored to be awarded for this team effort.

A congratulations is also in order for Leah Stephens, our extraordinary Catering Sales Manager, who was given the prestigious Certified Special Events Professional Rising Star Award, presented by Tim Lundy. This accolade’s purpose is to honor, recognize, encourage and inspire an event professional towards her greatest potential in the special events industry. Leah’s hard work and dedication proves she is on her way to becoming a leader in the special events field.

Our legendary news keeps going! On April 12th, registered dietician and Atlanta Journal-Constitution columnist Carolyn O’Neil commended A Legendary Event for our healthy catering options in her article, “Catering to Your Health.” O’Neil interviewed A Legendary Event’s Sous Chef Lance Hagan and Pastry Chef Brittany Wright about delicious health and dietary alternatives in catered food. Hagan recommended healthier world cuisines such as Asian and Mediterranean and using regional Southern produce, while Wright created a lower-calorie panna cotta with fresh berries and dark chocolate.
