On November 1, 2015 CTO Weddings and Events had the pleasure of being the day-of coordinator of the beautiful couple Justin and Tonette Price. The love birds had the ceremony and reception at the Wimbish House. The celebration started in the midafternoon and lasted until 9pm.
Almost two hundred people gathered to witness and celebrate their union in marriage. The suite upstairs had just enough room to house both the bride and groom without them seeing each other. The bridesmaids wore blush pink empire waist dresses, while the groomsmen wore the ever so classic black tuxedos. Tonette wore a beautiful Sottero and Midgely gown.
After exchanging vows, Judge Hatchett ordained Justin and Tonette husband and wife. Preceding the ceremony the guest enjoyed a cocktail hour where they were able to view pictures of the lovely couple of their past years on the dating scene. During the cocktail hour the ballroom was being transformed into a beautiful reception hall decorated with candles and white and pink rose petals. The Wimbish House was the perfect venue because the space didn’t need a lot of decorations; the ballroom has intricate detailing along the ceiling and the walls, but the Wimbish house wasn’t always just known for its beauty but also for its rich history.
The Wimbish house is a historic structure; in the 1920’s it acted as the headquarters of the Atlanta Women’s Club. The Atlanta Woman’s Club engages in diverse ranges of projects, from their work to establish the Atlanta public kindergarten system, mobile libraries, the Sweet Auburn Farmers Market, and the establishment of Hartsfield International Airport. With their hard work acknowledged by former president Jimmy Carter and the first lady Roslyn Carter the women were really influential to the community.
Being built in the 1895 the house was lovingly restored and is designated a national, state and city landmark. Still designed in the eclectic French Renaissance Revival, or Chateuesque style the Wimbish House is the perfect venue for events ranging from extravagant birthday celebrations to whimsical wedding ceremonies.
