One of the many reasons Talk of the Town is widely reviewed one of the best wedding caterers in Atlanta and beyond is that our event and culinary experts are just that – Experts! (Our reviews on Wedding Wire and The Knot are not to be missed, by the way!)  And, we are thrilled to be sharing the first in a series containing expert advice from one of our amazing team!

Alyssa Causey is the venue manager at the truly incredible Silver City Farm. Talk about a venue that has it all! Situated in the pristine North Georgia mountains, Silver City Farm has both rustic elegance and historic beauty, along with event spaces that will give you the absolute most perfect setting!

We asked Alyssa, “So, Alyssa, what are you seeing in weddings or anticipating being big this coming year or so?” Of course, she had lots of great things to say . . .

“I get to be a part of lots and lot of beautiful weddings and I am always making notes about special things and keep my eye on what couples are going to be asking for.”

“Ultra Violet is Pantone’s color of the year for 2018, so I imagine we will be seeing a lot of that deep purple this year. Styled shoots are already popping up with this gorgeous theme!”

“Live paintings of ceremony and/or reception is a growing trend that I adore and recommend all the time!  It’s a very unique and original keepsake, and guests love watching the painting develop throughout the night. Plus the couple can choose different artists based on their artistic style, so it’s just as personal as choosing a photographer based on the feel of the images.”

“More couples are opting for favors that guests can consume, like mini boxes of donuts, little liquor bottles, bags of cookies, jars of jam, etc. Small gifts with the couples names on them are being replaced with more delicious, edible treats. I love snacks with great puns  – ‘We DONUT know what we’d do without you!’ – which are a big hit with guests.”

Well, what can we say? Alyssa is amazing and you can be assured that your wedding will be a dream come true at Silver City Farm or any of Talk of the Town’s incredible venues  – or nearly anywhere you choose!
