I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance, A church filled with family and friends.

I asked him what kind of wedding he wished for, He said one that would make me his wife.

An inside look

Social Lilly Publisher & OwnerA planning addiction from age 4 fueled Lynn Lilly to create new and unique methods of planning and marketing events. Opening her first company at age 23 with her Mother, Lynn has since created a unique footprint in the Atlanta market. After successfully building a production company Lynn saw the need for an event planning and consulting firm that not only focused on the client and creating a unique experience but also focused on building relationships with vendors and making them each others referral agents. Lilly White Events did just that by creating an excellent experience with clients and partner vendors. Lilly White Event’s success spurred Lynn to take it one step farther and develop the unique concept of Social Lilly. Social Lilly is born as an interactive experience for bridal vendors to market their business, build relationships in the industry, and interact with clients first hand at events. Atlanta is just the beginning, as Social Lilly will become a social staple in cities across America, creating a new way for brides to meet their wedding vendors.

What do you do when you are not in the office? – I enjoy my off weekends spending time at the park, the pool or the lake with my boyfriend, friends and family. I love to travel when I can squeeze it in my schedule!

Social Lilly City PublisherLindley Hewatt was born and raised in Snellville, Georgia. Growing up Lindley was always positively influenced by her entrepreneur dad. Both of her parents always wanted her to hold a leadership role and strive for nothing but the best. Twenty-One years old, Lindley has put her career goals in full throttle. Her bubbly, outgoing, and fashion forward personality has landed her right where she belongs in the event planning and marketing industry. Designing and coordinating different styles of events, always gives Lindley’s creative mind an opportunity to explore and set events apart from competitors.

What is one piece of advice you would give brides who are planning weddings? – My advice for any bride that is planning her own wedding is stay organized, and make sure you have someone you trust helping you. Don’t be afraid to ask others for help because honestly you can’t do it by yourself.

What do you do when you are not in the office? - I always try to find something to do that takes away the stress. Family and friends keep me sane from this fast paced industry. Of course shopping and trips to the beach are a PLUS!

Stacie Francombe Stacie’s Story Business Name: Get Married Media Experience:

I started my career while at Ohio State University, working as an intern and then as a production assistant in the sports department of an NBC affiliate. After college (in 1997) I moved to Atlanta to join the then start-up CNN Sports Illustrated cable network as an editor and associate producer, and was promoted to a key producer for CNN International's global sports coverage. In 1998, I joined TBS as a writer-producer. In 1999 (while still at Turner) I founded Reel Creative, a full-service production house, specializing in on-air commercial spots and professional videos. In January of 2006, I piloted the launch of Get Married Atlanta with my production company (Reel Creative) inside my studio apartment. It was the success of this local show and online concept that led to the creation of Get Married on a national scale. In just under two years, I transformed a local show produced by ten staff members to a national phenomenon (with over fifty employees in an 18,000 square foot studio) that includes a hit show on WEtv, a national bridal publication (Get Married magazine) and a robust website ( Fun Facts:

• I am addicted to sports! I love watching them and I love watching my three boys play. I never miss a game.

• I am learning how to cook! • I have three boys but have always wanted a girl so I can plan her wedding!

Family/Pets: Husband: Dave Francombe 3 sons: Josh (8), Jake (6), Geordie (4) Dog: Beckham (Bichon sh*tzu)

Down to business Get Married Media is a national wedding planning resource that reaches passionate brides on TV (WE tv Saturdays at 9:30am et/pt), online ( and in print (Get Married magazine). Get Married connects brides with local and national wedding vendors and industry experts through entertainment and news. Get Married magazine (distribution 300,000) the new shopping and trend guide for the savvy bride - moves beyond the traditional ways of delivering a bridal publication - from the newest interactive technology and latest trends in bridal shopping and style to a colorful, fresh voice in the wedding genre. Closely integrated with the TV show and Get Married magazine, the online portal at offers brides an interactive experience, including a wedding shop that sells wedding accessories and products as seen in the magazine, as well as a wedding blog (, video segments from the show, articles, image galleries and wedding planning tools.

What inspired the Get Married brand? I have always had a passion for all things bridal and an entrepreneurial spirit. While researching the most lucrative and evergreen industries to break into, I found that death, taxes and weddings were lucrative and almost recession proof. Of those, weddings were the most uplifting. Weddings were always going to be around and, as a $60 billion a year industry, I knew I could carve out a unique space. Coming from the news world, I noticed a void in the wedding genre for a wedding lifestyle platform for brides to be entertained and informed. Thus Get Married was born.

What is your favorite part of your job: My favorite part of my job is connecting with the brides! They continue to be an incredible resource for inspiration. I love when brides are able to take a trend and translate it for themselves—the results are inevitably unique and creative. We are all about the bride at Get Married, so when I see a bride’s vision come to life, it reinvigorates me to work harder. Photography credit: Donna Newman

Ataricharm Photography

Our Story Owner: Matt Odom What is a unique service you offer brides: My clients hire me for my point of view and approach to making images. My approach to special events can be described as “reportage-style” photography. Reportage-style photography is an eye witness approach to the event, capturing the event as the event unfolds. We focus less on staging photos (i.e. traditional group shots) and focus more on capturing the natural dynamic of people interacting at the event. What sets your company above the competition? I don't believe in competition. I believe in taste. Ultimately, my clients share the same taste in photography as myself. We value dynamic, intimate, honest photos that are captured by someone who understands both the art and science of photography.

Behind the Scenes

Favorite Wedding Story/Wedding Client: Definitely shooting a wedding at the Fox Theatre has to rate pretty high on my favorite weddings. Of course, shooting a wedding on a beach in Mexico wasn't half bad either! • 404.281.7585 • [emailprotected] @ataricharm • Atlanta

Mikala Carver Photography

Our Story Owner: Mikala Carver I am a modern couture wedding photographer for fabulous people! My camera is an extension of my heart and soul. The connections I make with my clients drive my business. I care about people and want them to feel the love in my photography. The thing I love most about what I do is being there to catch the moments in between, when no one knows I am there. It's capturing the "real" smiles, laughter, and tears. I think there is nothing better than being able to freeze these precious moments in time for two fabulous people in love!

Behind the Scenes How does your business make a unique footprint on the Atlanta bridal industry? My couture photography style puts a spin on the traditional approach by incorporating a “glamour magazine and fashion photography” approach when shooting; I am able to create amazingly stunning images that are different from other wedding photographers. I love utilizing the nitty-gritty areas; being able to take the bride or groom into a place most people would never dream of and using the “glamour” of the bride and groom to offset such a unique atmosphere. Fun Facts: I once shot a wedding on top of a waterfall standing in the middle of a river on a rock. • 404.663.0102 [emailprotected] • @mikalacarver

Behind the Scenes

Favorite Wedding Story: My favorite wedding story is when I was chosen to bake an anniversary cake for a couple who had been married for 50 years. It was a surprise 50th wedding anniversary that their closest family and love ones put together in their honor. What made this such a unique wedding story to me was because of two facts; one, they were still happily married after 50 long years. And two, I learned that they did not have a cake at the original wedding date some 50 years ago because they couldn’t afford one at the time. After dinner was served and it was time for desert, I walked in the room to present the cake and both the husband and wife both cried tears of happiness and joy. It was such an elation to be apart of such a wonderful event. • 404.549.1414 [emailprotected]

From tears of frustration to tears of joy to tears of relief….I find it all challenging and exciting. It is like a really, really, pretty roller coaster ride.

Behind the Scenes

Who or what inspires you? Inspiration comes from many areas. I love vintage and architecture. Colors and clean lines. Textiles and the unexpected. I love looking at old cards and photographs for inspiration. The natural colors that appear in nature, rows of food at the grocery store or displays of colored inks or pencils can send me rushing home to create. Lately I have found great inspiration from papers we are purchasing from India. The colors and textures are amazing! • 404.226.7575 • [emailprotected] @Confetti

Edible Heart

Our Story

Owner: Parker Wallace: Personal Chef, Cookbook Author, Cooking Party Hostess and all-around cool chick to hang with in the kitchen Edible Heart is not a culinary concept-- it’s a foodie love connection! The motto for my business and my upcoming cookbook is “Eat Your Heart Out, Share Your Heart and Come Back For More!” I’m helping my clients discover that the most important ingredient in ANY recipe is TLC-- and I’m not talking thyme, lemon or cayenne! The TLC factor transforms people and their palettes. Whether I’m doing the cooking for you, or teaching you how to whip up a great meal for your new hubby, my goal is to make the experience one that you remember....and can continue to share with the people you love.

Favorite Wedding/Client Story: Magic is the key word in this story! There are certain people we meet who startle us awake into consciousness and change our life trajectory. When I met this particular couple, all I could think of was one word: Magic. Their energy, their connection, their whole vibe was sheer magic. I had never experienced that feeling in a romantic relationship and frankly, didn’t think it existed until I witnessed it between them. I agreed to be set up on a blind date with one of their friends, and let’s just say he turned out to be my Magic Man! “The ONE” had never been in my vocabulary before that date. Fast forward to now: I am blissfully in love and will be hosting and catering the rehearsal dinner for the magic couple who changed my life and introduced me to L-O-V-E.

How or why did you get into the bridal industry?

Edible Heart is a business that thrives on food and connection....Two people in love who are getting ready to take that next step can only benefit from what I have to offer: Divine food and a recipe road map to get there together. • 678.897.1717 • [emailprotected] • @parker100

Jill Calefate Photography

Our Story Owners: Kevin & Jill Calefate

Experience: I have over 14 years experience photographing different

clients & subjects as well as over 11 years experience as a TV producer, director, and graphics designer.

What is a unique service you offer brides?: Among many perks and discounts that I offer my brides, a favorite by far is that I perform image

editing one by one. This allows me to pay enough attention to each photo so that it looks even more beautiful than the original. It truly gives each

image a unique look.

Behind the Scenes

Favorite Wedding Story: I was hired to follow a client as he planned to propose to his girlfriend in the airport as she arrived off her flight. I captured the entire thing without her knowing I was even there. I must say, it was hard to focus on taking the photos while I had tears in my eyes. Nothing like seeing genuine happiness!

What inspires you? A laugh, a cry, a piece of paper, even a staircase…everything has beauty in it; figuring out how to capture it is what I love and enjoy. • 770.279.8087 • [emailprotected] @JillsPhotos

Do You Like Your Wedding Toast Buttered? “Tying the Knot” where did this phrase come from? Centuries ago, many cultures around the world including Celtic, Hindu, and Egyptian weddings literally tie the hands of the bride and groom together to demonstrate the couples commitment. Tying the knot also had unique meanings in the Roman Empire. The bride tied her girdle in knots and the Groom untied the knots prior to consummation of their marriage What are some other interesting facts about a wedding? So you are planning your wedding and you want to get married on Saturday. Well guess what, according to English folklore, Saturday is the unluckiest wedding day of the week, but yet it is the most popular. Wednesday is considered the best day. Monday is for wealth and Tuesday is for health. So why is the ring worn on your fourth finger on your left hand? Engagement and wedding rings are worn on the fourth finger on the left hand because it was once thought that a vein in that finger led directly to the heart. The Wedding Toast (bread?) This fun and sometimes embarrassing tradition first began in France. Bread would be placed in the bottom of two drinking glasses for newlyweds. They would then drink as fast as they could to be the first person to get to the toast. According to legend, the winner would rule their household. Can you believe that one of the earliest engagement rings was given to Princess Mary, daughter of Henry VIII; she was 2 yrs old at the time.

Queen Victoria started the theme of the worlds white wedding dress in 1840. Everyone thinks that you wear white on your wedding day because it meant purity, but that is not the case. Blue is actually the color of purity. Before Queen Victoria women just wore their best dress not their white dress.

It was thought by ancient Greeks and Romans that the veil protected the bride from evil spirits. Brides have worn veils ever since.

During a Christian ceremony the bride stands to the grooms left because in ancient times the groom needed their right hand free to fight off other suitors.

Many generations ago it was required that witness’ be present while the couple consummated the marriage. Then the witness would emerge with brides garter for proof they saw the events.

Opened in our original location in 1994, and relocated in 2008, T&G (as locals refer to us) continues to surpass industry standards as a nightclub that continues to change with the times and adapt to new trends in music, fashion, and nightlife, all the while staying relevant, fun, and popular.

The Southern Jewelry Box Our Story Owners: Greg and Sherri Buell We offer a complete service jewelry, accessories and gift business. Our focus is on custom designed, handcrafted jewelry items and gifts. We are family owned business and have a staff that has varied tastes and styles, so each member brings different ideas to the table. With this in mind, our expansive collection of designs includes everyday jewelry items as well as our Wedding Collection. We spend countless hours searching for genuine gemstones so that we can bring to you the most beautiful stones from around the globe. We pair them with the finest cut of crystals, the popular Swarovski crystals and then mix them with a variety of other elements. Unless it is a special order, all of our pieces are one-of-a-kind originals. We do not mass produce our handcrafted items; instead we personally build each piece one bead at a time, and then the design changes.


Behind the Scenes

How or why did you get into the bridal industry? After a bad experience during my wedding, I decided to help brides make sure that their special day was not ruined by bad caterers, late photographers, dresses that didn’t fit and dead flowers. I wanted to make it as special as they had always dreamed of when they were little girls, playing dress up and envisioning what their wedding day would someday be like. • [emailprotected] @SouthJewelryBox • F/The Southern Jewelry Box • 404.596.6138

Victoria Patterson Photography

Our Story

Owner: Victoria Patterson

Photographers are drawn to the art for many reasons, I love the magic of the precise moment still photography captures; so many emotional and

compositional elements are interwoven into an instant. My vision is dynamic and is the culmination of my experience as a wedding photographer. I love to

capture the special moment that will warm one’s heart, bring a tear to one’s eye or a smile to one’s face.

Experience: 15 years plus

Behind the Scenes

What is a unique service you offer your brides: A unique service that we offer our brides would be the opportunity to do a separate bridal session where we pick out a special location and they get to go through the whole motion “as if it were their wedding day”, and shoot the most amazing photos in a beautiful serene place. This takes a lot off not only the couple but the guests on that special day.
