During the last Atlanta Snowpocalypse in 2014, the talented team at Colors Of Life Photography saw the perfect opportunity for a fantastic (albeit freezing) photoshoot. Colors of Life invited a former client, bride AlexaRay, to take part in this snowy shoot in her Vera Wang wedding gown. Thank goodness she was up for the chilly challenge because the photos are #flawless!

The actors from the year’s best films hit the red carpet looking like royalty for the 87th Academy Awards. While many are discussing the best and worst dressed, we’re focusing on bride-style inspiration straight from the stars! Several celebs looked downright bridal, sporting whites, blushes and other soft neutrals. Even trends hot off of the Bridal Fashion Week runways were on display, including all-over embellishment, off-the-shoulder sleeves and barely-there color. A few of our favorite bride-inspired looks came from:

Atlanta’s top wedding professionals always bring their A-game to the Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta. They pull out all the stops to show brides their talent, creativity and keen eye for hot trends. Check out some of the big 2015 wedding trends on display at the Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta in January!

Rich Color Palettes
Marsala, Pantone’s color of the year, helped to set the tone for a trend we’ll be seeing in a lot of weddings: use of deep colors. The demand for pastels and bright pops of color are subsiding as brides gravitate toward rich hues for a more sophisticated feel.

Gowns with Conservative Necklines
Though strapless remains a staple in gown designs, we’re seeing many more modest necklines on the runways and walking down aisles. The higher cut often draws the eye automatically upward to the real star of the show: the bride. Sweet details and added embellishment keep the look elegant and demure instead of stuffy.

Metallic Gold Accents
A touch of shine can add a glam factor to many wedding elements. From cakes and cutlery to invitations and decor, brides are seeking subtle ways to incorporate luxe luster into their design schemes.

Dessert Bars
While traditional wedding cakes will never go out of style, fun dessert bars are adding a sweet touch to receptions. Brides and grooms love showing their personalities by offering their favorites confections, and guests love having options to choose from. Plus, a display of decadent desserts always provide more lovely photos!

As Atlantans brainstorm a new workout routine for 2015, women in Sandy Springs and Buckhead now have easy access to the acclaimed full body workout that has taken the women’s world of group fitness by storm. The Pink Barre studios in both City Walk and Tuxedo Center opened in June, and the response was immediate thanks to Barre’s buzz for producing toned, balanced, sculpted and leaner bodies. The Pink Barre City Walk has the distinction of being Sandy Spring’s first stand-alone barre boutique to offer the popular ballet-inspired barre classes following the company’s first location in February 2014 at Emory Point serving Decatur, Druid Hills and Virginia Highlands.
Pink Barre

Inspired by the classic barre from the world of ballet, barre fitness incorporates pilates, ballet, body work, yoga, training and strengthening with a bevy of props for a total body workout. Barre works every muscle group to fatigue and then follows each section with a targeted stretching segment to produce strong, balanced and lean bodies. The fitness concept has a loyal and diverse fan base of celebrities, athletes, dancers and both older and young enthusiasts, and the presence of Barre boutiques has grown in Atlanta as word spreads about the energizing fitness routine that produces toned, balanced muscles without breaking a sweat.
