Their Atlanta wedding was held in the Contemporary Art Center and so Anya and Terrence wanted a day that was creative. They described their theme as “like Mad Men meets country chic”, a balance between old vintage ideas and newer, more glamorous touches.
“The thing that defined our wedding was that it was uniquely us”, wrote Anya. “We made nearly every decision together and that has helped form the foundation to our marriage. We started with what I had always envisioned for my wedding, kind of traditional and southern. I was a débutante for goodness sake! We then cut all things that didn’t make sense or weren’t okay with both of us and the rest just formed naturally.”
“The thing that had the greatest impact on how the wedding formed was finding the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. Just like we randomly found each other, we discovered our venue from a generic Google search! We just decided to check it out one Sunday and as soon as we walked up and met Khadijah, we were sold and our theme formulated from there.”
“We splashed the cash on having a live band”, the bride concluded. “I never found a DJ I really liked and I read an article somewhere that said entertainment was something most couples regretted not spending more on. So we hired a band I had been a huge fan of in college, Dayve Stewart and the Vibe. They were fantastic and worth every penny! However we saved on our invitations. We used Minted.com. Their minibook invitations were great for creating an introduction to each of us for people on each side. We then had a free wedding website through ModWedding.comand used that for our RSVPs. We saved on postage and our invitations were gorgeous and unique.”
