On Thursday, August 17, 2017, Atlanta Wedding and Event Professionals rolled out the red carpet and welcomed guests to an evening of fashion, premium cuisine, and philanthropy. We unveiled the first ATLANTA HIGH FASHION | BRIDAL event and brought together some of Atlanta's finest event professionals at the City Club of Buckhead. The night began with a VIP style entrance, fascinating panoramic cityscape, curbside service, and passed and stationed cuisine and libations. This inaugural event was created to showcase the amazing talent of "Atlanta's Wedding and Event Professionals," to emphasize the importance of collaboration over competition, and to benefit local communities through charitable donations.
This unforgettable occasion allowed guests to support two worthy causes while experiencing the epic evening. With 100% of proceeds from the silent auction and donations, The Giving Kitchen and Georgia Breast Cancer Coalition were the esteemed beneficiaries.
Stunning models graced the runway donned in satin, lace, jewels, flowers and breathtaking couture bridal gowns, effectively leaving the crowd in awe. Atlanta Wedding and Event Professionals was pleased to welcome the fabulous and soulful Nikki Loraine who graced the mic with special releases and a rendition of a crowd favorite from her brother, recording artist Ne'Yo. We were honored to welcome the incredible Mr. Brad James of For Better or Worse. Among the VIP guests were CEO and Editor-in-Chief of Black Bride Magazine Mary Chatman and celebrity appearances were none other than the brother of Nikki Loraine, Ne'Yo, and professional model Crystal Smith (Ne'Yo's lovely wife). #AtlantaWEP is forever grateful to the sponsors who appeared and gave generously to make the magic possible. Thank you to sponsors and partners
