MICHAEL AND ERICA'S WEDDING

February, 2010 in St John UMC: 550 Mt Paran Road NW, Atlanta, GA 30305 ................................................ InTouch Ministries: 3836 DeKalb Technology Pkwy, Atlanta, GA 30340

"Our wedding was beyond anything I could have ever imagined! It was elegant & grand, yet simple & modest at the same time. Getting married in Atlanta required some driving between venues, but it was really fun and nobody got lost in transit! Our February wedding turned out to be the weekend of sunshine and 60-degree weather in Atlanta...a miracle indeed considering the cold, rain and snow we had before and after! This Wedding Mapper was a great resource to share with our guests. I created screen shots of the maps to include on our personal website, and even linked people back to the Wedding Mapper so they could explore on their own. We highly recommend using it!"

"Jack & Jamie Cappelletti have been such a pleasure to work with in creating the cake I had hoped to have for our wedding. I'm not even a big cake-person, but I loved their white-chocolate buttercream icing!! So much so, I ate the entire sample cupcake Jack handed me! HA Jamie and her creative genius is going to provide an elegant wedding cake for our reception based off a magazine photo I gave her, and I couldn't have been happier having them involved in our blessed day! Jamie worked with me on everything, and instead of white frosting/fondant with no taste...I had a white chocolate buttercream frosting that was simply delicious! Leftover wedding cake was served at my office during lunch on Monday. Two weeks later, I STILL had coworkers telling me how scrumptious it was and how much they loved it. Several said they wanted more but it was gone! HA Her number is: 770.887.4944 (closed on Mondays) Some of my groom's buddies called after our honeymoon and told my new husband to let me know how much they liked the wedding cake!"

Caterer:

Forever in a Day

"I was familiar with the catering mastery of Chef Todd Hogan through various events over the past few years. He always creates scrumptious morsels to entice your taste buds, and has an elegant approach to presentation. I was thrilled to have "Forever in a Day" cater our reception! Chef Todd can create an excellent menu, divine morsels which are simply scrumptious to fit any occasion, style and budget - LITERALLY. Call his event planner, Katherine Schwimmer, at: 678.357.0804 or email her. I had a total peace of mind knowing they were handling my catering. Not once did I worry about how the reception would turn out...they are simply that amazing. I had confidence beyond imagination as to how wonderful my reception would be, and how much my guests would enjoy it! And my guests raved about the reception food :)"

"St. John UMC was the perfect spot for us. After looking at many, and I do mean MANY churches & sanctuaries....going through many rules & regulations at different churches....we were very excited to find the warm and welcoming pastor and staff at St. John UMC. The outside is kind of 70s-esque, but the sanctuary interior of St. John UMC can be best described as being simply put: Majestic. With a rich, deep red center aisle, dark wooden pews with velvety, bench cushion, cathedral ceilings, deep wood stage, pipes from the pipe organ, and more...one enters the sanctuary and can't help but say, "wow..." and just stand there taking it all in. It's classy, elegant, stately, of breathtaking grandeur, and so much more! Their bridal suite is sweet & comfy, and they have a larger room across the hall for all the bridesmaids...with a petition in place so us girls could go back & forth without being detected. ;) the men even had their own area to lounge, and each of the larger rooms offered plenty of space for my family to bring in meat & cheese trays, fresh fruit, and waters to keep everyone tied-over during the pre-ceremony preparations through reception arrival! We had plenty of space to bring in a string quartet, and a soloist who accompanied himself with an acoustic guitar. The acoustics of the sanctuary are amazing and the room was filled with the beauty of the music. An audio technician was provided by the church to aid in the use of microphones by the pastor and musicians. Our wedding hostess, provided by the church, was an absolute delight to work with - her name is Kim Branch. I highly recommend St. John UMC for your wedding ceremony consideration! :)"
