Andrea & Aaron’s Casablanca-Meets-Egyptian Soirée
In a Casablanca-meets-Egyptian-Revival celebration, Andrea and Aaron ensured there was never a dull moment in their wedding celebration. The couple reinvented traditional wedding fun- damentals and successfully created an undeniably amazing party.
Since Andrea’s family and friends are not local to Atlanta, the couple wanted a venue in the heart of the city. The Fox Theatre’s central location fit the bill. But aside from the location, the venue’s distinctive Egyptian Ballroom and Grand Salon secured it as the perfect venue for the couple.
A traditional wedding dress wasn’t Andrea’s style, so she decided to wear a custom-made flamenco dress from Sibilina Flamenca in Seville, Spain. And in lieu of a bridal bouquet, she added a handmade, scarlet beaded fan to complete her look.
Andrea and Aaron’s ceremony took place on the theater stage in the Egyptian Ballroom. For a truly unique guestbook, friends and family created their own Egyptian cartouche (a hieroglyphic nameplate) as they awaited the ceremony.
After vows were exchanged, the doors opened to the Grand Salon for cocktail hour. Guests were greeted with a Moroccan tea tent with tea leaf readings from Handy Entertainment and an electric violinist filling the air with music. The party really got started when Aaron debuted an outfit change and the couple performed their first dance, choreographed by Academy Ballroom Atlanta. Dancing continued as an aerialist on a lollipop hoop enticed guests to the dance floor. To close out the night, the bride and groom created a soul train line and made their exit into happily ever after.
