Mollie & Jason
Black tie glamour meets Southern charm at Mollie and Jason's wedding. The couple's 280 guests will be treated to a lavish, all-expense-paid weekend in Atlanta. The ceremony will take place at the city's most prestigious place of worship, the Cathedral of St. Philip. Eight red rose wreaths and a strolling violinist will welcome guests as they arrive. The Grammy-winning Atlanta Boy Choir, as well as a pianist, organist and trumpeter will provide wedding music, while a string trio will provide prelude music. The bride's Rivini ceremony gown is valued at $35,000, while her tiara, a handmade gift from designer Maria Elena, is valued at $10,000. During the cocktail hour at the famous Ritz Carlton, the family wedding gowns will be on display in the corridor, along with rose topiary trees and dozens of fresh arrangements. Signature drinks and the bride's favorite childhood foods will be served. Inside the reception, the custom designed lighting will wash the ballroom in a soft pink with pin spotting and a custom gobo shining the bride and groom's monogram in the center of the oversized white dance floor. Three magicians will circulate around the party, while 1970's platinum recording artists, The Tams, provide musical entertainment. During the reception, the bride will change into a pale pink bridal gown, also custom made by Rivini. The Southern Comfort menu includes options like shrimp and grits, broccoli cole slaw, buttermilk fried chicken and mashed sweet potatoes. Dessert stations will serve warm peach cobblers with vanilla creme, while the five-tiered wedding cake was modeled after that of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. As the bride exits through a shower of ivory rose petals, guests will be left with Christopher Radko Christmas ornaments, custom designed posters and special surprises from the valet. It all wraps up with a beautiful farewell breakfast in the Ritz' Georgian Room.
