Upon entering the Botanical Gardens, guests were greeted with rich, decadent desserts and uniquely blended cocktails provided by Bold American Catering, A Divine Event, Sun In My Belly, and Added Touch Catering. After mixing and mingling, guests were invited to join Blend Custom Perfume for a pampering experience of creating their own special blend of perfume to enjoy. This is where the night was just getting started.

Guests then entered the garden down a slightly lit path, with some of the most beautiful and delicate pieces of art surrounded by vibrant colors that gave the event personality and an added touch of romance. As guests continued walking through the garden’s beauty, they came to the entrances of three different halls, where they could enjoy everything from learning how to dance, disco music, and a mix of oldies and newbies.

DJ Joel Rabe of Lethal Rhythms rocked the crowd in the Day Hall and kept everyone on their toes until the music was cut off at 11:45 PM (45 minutes after the event ended)! A variety of songs and artists such as Elton John, Michael Jackson, Journey, and many more were featured and kept couples and loved ones dancing all night long. Not only did Rabe entice everyone, young and old with music, but he captured the moment early on with the Anniversary Dance. Couples dating for a minimum of 24 hours glided across the dance floor until their anniversary was called. As couple after couple left the floor, DJ Joel Rabe called 38 years and 5 couples still swayed together. As, the anniversary’s continued to be called, one couple stood strong on the dance-floor. They were married for 52 years! This was not only entertaining, but heartwarming as well. Rabe asked the couple to give the Day Hall guests words of advice to take on in their relationships and the couple simply replied with two things “she is always right” and “love each other unconditionally.” In addition to the stimulating entertainment, Graceology Photography captured the most memorable highlights throughout the night. Exciting giveaways such as a weekend at Loews Hotel in Midown, an amethyst pendant from Le Vian jewelers, and a couples weekend with a massage at the W Hotel Midtown were given away every hour from 9:00 PM to 11:00 PM. We know this sounds unbelievable, but don’t think the night ended here!

Mouth watering desserts and cocktails, beautiful décor and scenery, rocking entertainment that kept guests upbeat and alive, and mixing and mingling with some of Atlanta’s top-notch vendors made time feel endless.  But when it did end, guests were given a stunning rose provided by Tulip to add the perfect ending to a fabulous night at the most romantic event in Atlanta this year.

To all our best vendors,

Thank you so much for your participation in the Valentines event at the Garden on Saturday.

The final guest count was 1345 (coincidently, that is the Garden’s street address). It was truly a magical night.

From the meringue puffs in the Visitor Center, the whimsical sweets in Mershon, music and dueling catering in Day Hall, and flashbacks with pictures in the Retro Café, to apple crisps and popcorn take-aways, everyone enjoyed your treats and services.  Even when we sold 4 tickets @ 10:17pm, we were able to satisfy the customer!

Please let me know any thoughts you have on improvements, what worked, what didn’t, etc.  Your feedback would be welcome and appreciated.  And most of all, we hope you will consider returning next year.

You’re the best of the best and we’re honored to have you as part of our team!

The Rathman Fairytale Wedding 1/29/2011

Lethal Rhythms would like to say thank you to our newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Brian Rathman! It was such an honor for Lethal Rhythms DJ Mike Beaver and Event Coordinators, Kra Riddell and myself, Deziree Valdez to be a part of their wedding day on January 29, 2011 at the W- Hotel Midtown. Though Kra Riddell has coordinated weddings before, this was my first and it was remarkably beautiful and truly unique!

When I reminisce about the ceremony and reception, I begin to imagine the elegant lighting flowing throughout the gorgeous drapery that flowed over the back wall, provided by Event Drapery. By Tulip Flower Shop’s beautiful bouquets set on pedestals created a stunning visual accent against the white lighted drapery, which perfectly framed both Jennifer and Brian as they said their vows on center stage. Guests then made their way upstairs to the Away Hallway to enjoy delicate hors d’œuvres and a complimentary open bar. As guests mixed and mingled for about an hour, they were then summoned up to the 27th floor Ballroom for one of the most beautiful reception I have seen.

The W-Midtown catering prepared one of the most enticing dinners that pampered guests with choices of salmon, steak, or chicken. After toasts were given, guests flowed on the dance floor to dance the night away with DJ Mike Beaver’s latest beats. One of the unique dances that Mr. and Mrs. Rathman chose to incorporate is known as the “Anniversary Dance”. This is a dance where all couples slow dance to a variety of chosen songs by the bride and groom. As guests dance, the DJ randomly announces numbers; this number indicates the number of years couples have been together. Once a couple’s anniversary is called, they politely leave the dance floor. At the end of the dance, the couple who has been together the longest give words of advice to the newlyweds to take on in their marriage. This was one of the most memorable moments I shared with Jennifer and Brian. As they began to slip away for the evening, they were surrounded by guests saying farewell before they exited through an outdoor elevator just in time to see the captivating city at its brightest. If you aren’t mesmerized yet, the talented Drew Newman with Drew Newman Photography, captured every special moment throughout the night.

In addition to the positive energy that flowed throughout the W- Hotel Midtown, fantastic vendors worked together to create a flawless day! Lethal Rhythms took pride in knowing guests walked away from Jennifer and Brian’s reception with everything from the Rathman’s style, taste, and vision in mind!

If you did not have the pleasure of attending the Rathman’s fairytale wedding, I hope I was able to give you a vivid recap of how perfect and romantic their special day was. Not only did I hear some of the best toasts, but every moment I shared with this wonderful couple and guests showed the dedication and devotion they have and bring together. This was truly a magical night that will be remembered dearly by family and friends alike.
