Perrys Landing Tasting Event 4/25/21

So this is one of my favorite events that I look forward to ALL year!!! It’s not just about meeting new couples in love but this venue is ah-mazing!!!

Perrys Landing has some of the prettiest landscaping that creates a beautiful backdrop for your wedding ceremony and reception. Can we talk about sitting out tables on the lawn, to enjoy a meal and looking out at the gorgeous sunset streaming thru the trees?!?

When I tell you they show off… they do it big. I mean how awesome is it to see the potential of decor that’s available for your big day?!? Here’s just a few of my favorites!!! I have to admit I love a beautiful pop of color. Good thing I’m not getting married because these tablescapes are fabulous and I would not be able to choose just one.

Miss Ruby. Y’all!!! Her cakes are sooooo good! I don’t even care…. I. Will. Always. Eat. Cake!!! She makes my fat girl heart happy. Things just taste better with some love baked in and her cakes (I have enjoyed several at this point) are always delicious! Oh yeah and I don’t even mess around with them baby cakes – I grab up the full sized!!!

Can we talk competition? Can we talk about love for our competition? Well I’ve got mad love for Courtney of Sugar Peach. Not only is she so freakin adorable but she is the sweetest too. I’ve worked with her and even for her for several past events. If you need video she would be who I will recommend… EVERY time! PL’s DJ is pretty awesome. I may have shaked this booty five times or ten…. I dunno. That’s just a sign of having a great time and enjoying yourself. I always want to get in on the action and have fun at my events. So if you see me on the dance floor… join me!!! The musicians were so smooth and relaxing. I could totally envision hearing them playing welcoming music as your guests arrive, your ceremony entrance song and recessional music. PL’s staff is top notch! Mignon and her crew make sure every detail is executed perfectly and do it with such grace.

After confirming a special surprise was coming up…. I rounded up a couple and told them there was about to be some fireworks and I would love to try to get a few pics. They graciously came out…. and I captured a little something fun for them.

Once I was done I noticed another couple and someone with a cell phone getting some snaps of them. I was a little pushy and had their celltographer (yep I just made up that word) move over and let me get in there. The fireworks were nearly over but I made something magical in the end!!! Oh and if you’re wondering… that bright circle… it’s the moon.

I’d love to say Congrats to all the couples!!! Thank YOU to everyone that I got to chat with and that allowed me to capture just a quick moment of this exciting time preparing for one of the best days ever!!!

Finally…. a huge shoutout to my assistant. My skip to My LOU!!! Thank you for making my job easier! I love YOU!!! (previous selfie used because even though I intended to totally snap one of us… I forgot {insert super sad face}).

Nashville, TN: Imaging USA

What’s new with At Last Productions???

ImagingUSA Gaylord Opryland Resort, Nashville TN


We, Cherie and Phillip, had such a great time in Nashville, TN at the Gaylord Opryland Resort. I, Cherie, had to go to Imaging and frankly, it is, hands down, one of the largest gatherings of professional photographers for wedding, newborn, maternity, boudoir and senior photography and so much more. Phillip lets me drag him along because he is the most awesomest person ever!!!

Snow topped trees on a hilltop


Our drive from Augusta, Georgia to Nashville, Tennessee was definitely one filled with beauty and excitement. It was snowing!!! On the way there and while we were there. We’re not talking about that 1/4″ Georgia snow that shuts down schools and has everyone going out to buy up all the milk and bread within a three state radius.  I can only gauge accumulation based on what I saw stacked on chairs, tables and the grass but my guess is 3-4″ total and it was soooo pretty.

Red Berries

Footprints in the snow


I was so excited for the snow and Imaging that I stayed awake the whole drive. I’m usually out like a lumberjack after working 15 hours followed up by a hot shower and a full belly and this is only 10 minutes into the car ride. Just sayin for a friend, who gets stuck driving while I am snoring. Other than the snow, I was excited to be able to go and learn from the top educators and professionals in the photography industry.

Hello Jack


I came back having found beautiful new products that I can’t wait to share with our clients. I am overflowing with new ideas about our business and where our direction is taking us.

Beautiful lighting


We are fortunate to share our journey of our crazy, fun and love filled life with you!



Camarie & Alton are married…. AGAIN!!!

At Last Productions was hired to create a monogram for Camarie and Alton but I got to sneak and witness their super sweet commitment to each other. I always try to carry my camera with me. Especially lately. Well because you just never know when you will want it or need it. And if I had a dollar for everytime I’ve said “I wish I had my camera”. Well I’d surely be a thousandaire.

I’m so excited that this day…  I did have my camera!!!

Anna & George are Married!! 6.28.2014 ~ At Last Productions ~ Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church

We are so very happy to announce that one of our favorite couples are now Mr. & Mrs.!! As we waited for the ceremony to begin Anna walked in and… Oh Em Gee!! Her wedding gown was absolutely stunning and I had to grab a quick shot of her in the room. Anna was glowing with excitement and beauty. I’m so happy for them.
This is right before she walked down the aisle!

The room was one of our most amazing transformations! Contact Us At Last Productions today to talk about how we can bring your vision to life on your wedding day!!
Amazing Before & After

The centerpieces looked like mini aquariums and fit their water theme perfectly.
These were perfect for the décor!

Nia & Jason are married!! 5.17.14 The Heal Complex at Paine College Reception

At Last Productions had a great time working with some of our very favorite people, Dewayne and Cassandra of Unique Events. They provided exquisite table décor and florals for Nia & Jason’s wedding celebration. I love how beautifully our company compliments others – it never stops amazing me. I say all the time…. We are just a part of a couple’s wedding day, it takes everyone coming together with the same goal to make it fabulous.

We all began setup the day before the wedding. As far as us perfectionists saw it, the preinstalled pipe and draping just wasn’t there yet. We called on John at Moretz Production Service. At Last Productions has personally worked with him before and he really came through for us all in a major way. John provided the finishing touches on the draping around the room and additional setups for the guest entry way and pipe and drape to conceal two staircases that was so desperately needed. It’s in the details. Watching this room go from drab to fab was like watching a day go from dark to light.

Tonight we meet a stellar vendor – Desmond of Gardenia’s Custom Cakes. His creation for their wedding cake was simply jaw-dropping. He could easily be put into my top 3 wedding cake artists just with the visual alone. Unfortunately I didn’t get to partake in any cake and if you know me – I’m pretty upset over it. I LOVE my cake. However I did have some melt in your mouth cake pops. They were so sweet and yummy I went back for more (don’t tell anyone).

The catering staff of Paine College did an excellent job on the food and dinner service. They created two ice sculptures for the couple. A swan placed directly above their couple table and a huge heart on the dessert buffet. As a matter of fact, everyone we encountered, at Paine College went above and beyond to help in any way they could.
