A Great Gatsby Fall Wedding at Le Bam Studio in Atlanta, Georgia
Jana Ward (28 and a salon owner) decided to download a new dating app while waiting to be induced with her son Cash and happened to stumble across Caleb Tillman's (25 and a music producer) profile. The pair began talking and immediately hit it off after meeting for their first date shortly after Cash was born. Caleb began to help co-parent Cash and proposed to Jana in front of family and friends at her hair salon. They quickly began making wedding plans and invited guests to celebrate at Le Bam Studio in Atlanta, Georgia. "The indoor studio is very artsy, eclectic, fantasy, glamorous, modern and romantic," says Jana. "From the chandeliers, to the sparkly tree in the lounge, down to the black and gold carpeting, the place was amazing from top to bottom!" With a late fall date and a dramatic venue, Jana and Caleb worked to transform their indoor wedding into a Great Gatsby-inspired celebration with a black, gold and Tiffany blue color palette. Both the bride and bridesmaids opted out of carrying traditional bouquets, instead Jana created a cluster of antique broaches while her bridesmaids accessorized with gold fans, enhancing the glamorous 1920s feel. Large white feather arrangements and dripping pearl accents filled the glitzy ballroom with Tiffany blue uplighting. "We had black table clothes with sparkly gold table runners and vintage ruffled gold chair covers," says Jana. "Smiles and laughter filled our receptions and then we drove away in a 1963 Chevrolet Bel Air before a carriage ride downtown—our happily ever after!"
