From Wedding Planner to Bridesmaid

About a year ago, and shortly after our colleague, Emma, got engaged, she asked me to be one of her bridesmaids. I was shocked, thrilled and nervous, but mostly excited. As a former wedding planner, most of my friends ask me to handle the timeline, logistics and rental agreements because I thrive in the details. I’ve only been in one wedding prior to this one and even then, I still handled the reception design and linen rentals as a favor to the bride.

Through this guided bus tour, he imparts colorful stories, insights and humor from his time with Dr. King and beyond. You see the homes and businesses of Civil Rights leaders, and learn the history of places you’ve probably driven by a thousand times and never thought about. It’

Turning On A Dime… For Chicken

Working in PR we often find ourselves “thinking outside the box,” “turning on a dime,” and using other clichés that “keep us on our toes.” So when Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano was selected to battle against some of Atlanta’s finest restaurants in Atlanta Eats’ 2017 Elite Eats, we “hit the ground running.” Here’s the deal: Atlanta Eats pitted dishes that have been featured on the show into a competition where fans choose the Atlanta Eats 2017 Chompion They’re playing off the Final Four hype – yeah, it’s some kind of basketball thing-y Gio’s is in the final two - cast your vote here Now here are some things you may not know about Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano in Little Italia.

Girls on Fire at Trina Turk

Last night Trina Turk hosted Toni Moceri’s “Girls On Fire” group for champagne and shopping.
