 Secret Garden

“While Greenery is the Pantone Color of the Year and very popular this season, Greenery can be much more than just ‘green,’” says Amy Saltzman, co-owner and designer of Alchemy Event Studio, who, along with creative partner Kate Stone, works with the city’s top wedding planners to bring clients’ decor and floral visions to life (Alchemy also offers full event-planning services to a few select clients annually). For this enchanted, whimsical tablescape staged in the Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta’s elegant English Gardens, the team “decided to use fresh greenery and bright moss as the background so the colorful flowers and butterflies would really pop,” Saltzman explains. Add to that setting an ethereal Anne Barge gown and Stone’s adorable dog, Samson Gray, donning a wreath of foliage, and you’ve got a scene as lovely—and lively—as the in-vogue hue itself.

 

Spring Awakening

“Green is my absolute favorite color,” reveals Shaundra Anderson, event coordinator for premier wedding planning company B. Moore Events—making this styled shoot at the High Museum of Art a favorite to execute. Akeem Clayton Designs filled the museum’s open, airy atrium with breathtaking 8-foot-tall trees to shade the luxuriously set crocodile estate table and vibrant benches. “Brides love the look of outdoor weddings but hate the risk of unknown weather,” Anderson says. “We decided to bring the outside in, literally, to give them the best of both worlds.”
