Here are what a few the couples who used this talented photographer had to say about her via Wedding Wire:

“Janet Howard is an incredibly talented photographer! She captures all the emotions and details of a wedding day in a way that tells a complete story. She also has a great eye for the special shots that take your breath away. Having Janet photograph your wedding feels like having another family member along for the celebration. She’s the best!”

“There are those who take pictures and there are those who embody moments. Janet embodies the moment – time and time again. Her photographs are bold, bright and beautiful. I feel like I can reach out and touch the photo, travel back in time and relive our wedding day over and over again. She was concerned with me not only as her customer, not only as a bride, but as a person. She kept in constant contact with me throughout the entire process. 

“Janet doesn’t look for cookie-cutter poses, instead she looks for fleeting moments and cements them into forever memories. The raw emotions that she captured in her camera lens conjure up several emotions. The main two? Happy tears. However ironic that is, one thing is for certain – Janet Howard is the best around!”

“Janet was a godsend! After a less than desirable experience with another photographer, we had to scramble and found Janet about a month before our wedding. And wow, what a difference! Her work is second to none and her professionalism in unmatched. She really has a knack for making you feel comfortable in front of the camera, which was beautifully displayed in our engagement and wedding photos. Her eye framed the shots perfectly and captured the true essence and emotion of our wedding. We are so happy that we chose Janet and love reliving our special day when we look through our photos!”

A Fall Fairy Tale: Linens by Nuage Designs

Even though the air is still warm and the leaves are still green, autumn will be here before we know it. The Romance collection by Nuage Designs features linens that will compliment the theme of any fall wedding. Whether the event is grand and romantic or cozy and rustic, this collection features soft hues and vintage patterns that you and your guests will love. Here are just a few of our favorites from the stunning collection.


White Victorian Lace












The White Victorian Lace design embodies a soft, minimal look with an added vintage flair. The white hue and versatile pattern allows this linen to be layered as a runner or overlay, but it could also be used as a full tablecloth for an elegant look.


Taupe Victorian Lace














If you love the White Victorian Lace but want to go with a darker tone, Taupe Victorian Lace is perfect for you. To bring out the subtle sheen in the pattern, add centerpieces and accents with a metallic tint.


Taupe Vintage Lace



Soft and dainty, the Taupe Vintage Lace design has a timeless elegance that would look stunning in any reception. Pair it with wooden accents to add a warm, rustic touch to your reception tables.


Blush Damask Scroll































From the intricate texture to the bold, elegant pattern, Blush Damask Scroll looks as if it came straight from a fairy tale. Floral accents and earth tones would create a stunning contrast with this whimsical pattern.

Where are you based?

We are in Norcross off of Jimmy Carter and 85

6070 Dawson Blvd., Suite C

Norcross, GA 30093

Do you offer your services to clients outside of Atlanta?

Not typically.  Cakes tend to not travel well, so it just depends on the circumstances. 

What options for customization do you offer?

We offer custom design from top to bottom.  It starts out with custom structures to the details and colors within the design.

At what point in the wedding planning process should clients begin meeting with you?

The cake should be one of the last décor pieces to design, so it fits seamlessly within the atmosphere.  We typically meet with clients from 9-3 months prior to the wedding.

Could you describe the creative process behind designing your cakes?

We like to get inspired by the feel of the entire wedding and take bits and pieces from different elements to truly make a major design feature within the reception.  Inspiration can come from the bride’s dress, the invitations or simply the textures used within the wedding.  We begin by building structures with Styrofoam to get the exact size and shape we want and then we start sketching.  I send over ideas to the couple and planner and it is truly a collaborative effort.

What are some of your favorite cake trends at the moment?

We are loving the trend of color cakes instead of the traditional white wedding cake.  It is enabling us to stretch ourselves outside of the box a little bit with design and we are loving how they turn out in the reception environment.  Metallics and painted cakes are also some of our favorite trends.   It really turns a cake into a canvas and really gives a beautiful artistic touch to receptions.

What makes your service unique?

We push the boundaries.  We really try to do things that you have never seen before to truly make a client’s wedding a once in a lifetime experience.  Our owner was an engineer prior to starting the company, so we approach structures and challenges in a very mathematical and precise way.  If a client or planner has an idea… we are always up for the challenge!

What is something that most people don’t know about you or your business?

That we are all science nerds.  A lot of people don’t realize how much science is actually involved from the precision within the baking process to the way the cake acts in different temperatures.  We are incredibly passionate about making our cakes perfect.  We spend a lot of time planning and trialing prior to the wedding weekend and leave nothing up to chance.
