On Wednesday morning, several vendors and staff members from StudioWed woke up bright and early to volunteer at Open Hand Atlanta. For 25 years, Open Hand has focused on cooking and distributing balanced meals for those in need across the Metro Atlanta area.  On a typical day, the organization makes over 5,000 meals, and along with volunteers from Home Depot and the wonderful staff, we made 2,074 of those in three hours!

As we continued to pack meals, it was amazing to see how much food was produced. Both quality and quantity are important to Open Hand; everything is freshly cooked and must adhere to specific nutritional guidelines based on their clients’ dietary needs.

Play That Funky Music White Boy

While brides tend to get lost in color schemes and fonts, one must never forget the importance of a well-respected and interactive DJ.

I can’t tell you how many weddings I’ve been to that are spectacular to “oh” and “ah” over, but completely lacked an involved and high-energy DJ. It is easy to underestimate the importance of an outgoing individual whose sole job is to make sure you and your guest have a memorable time and dance the night away.

AMP’D Entertainment has an indisputable track record of such. For months, I had been hearing just how fantastic they were that I finally had to see it for myself. After all, I’m such a stickler when it comes to the atmosphere of an event. I know a good time when I see one.

AMP’D Entertainment put on a special showcase at the Skylounge located in the Glenn Hotel and…well, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves:


DJ Mike Walsh makes spinning those 1’s and 2’s look easy. Don’t get me wrong, you wont find me behind that table. People can only take so much of my lip-syncing and bad dance moves. I’ll leave it to the professionals.


Those killer beats really had some guests reconsidering every Michael Jackson remix they’ve heard.


I cannot stress just how important an atmosphere is. Music, audience engagement and high energy can either make or break your event. While your floral arrangement may be to die for, that terrible remix of your favorite Billy Idol song and your DJ’s refusal to take requests will absolutely trump.

Make sure you and your guest leave only because last call was announced over an hour ago, but have yet to exit cause you’re really digging that never ending conga line.

The fellas at AMP’D Entertainment sure seem to know what they’re doing and they’re having too much fun in the process!

Pushing the Envelope: Five Unique Designs by Hi Note

No two weddings are exactly alike; everything from the couples’ clothes to their cake can reflect their unique personality. Why should their wedding stationery be any different? If you need anything on paper (or even engraved in wood), Hi Note can create exclusive designs that you and your guests will treasure for years to come. Here are just a few of our personal favorites.


  1. Urban Chic Stationery Suite

If you don’t prefer the lace and frills of a traditional wedding, stationery such as Hi Note’s Urban Chic suite would be a great way to showcase your unconventional style. The red and gold accents blend beautifully with the dark, gritty theme for a design that stands out from the crowd.


2. Champagne Flute Escort Cards
