The Walking Dead in Haralson at our Studio

This summer when we found the most perfect studio space we had no  idea what was ahead in our future. All we knew was that we found a large space in a perfectly rustic building with lots of storage, a great area to meet with brides and a room just for doing projects. It is on a quiet serene street in Haralson which is only five miles south of Senoia, Georgia. 
Well, that quickly changed as we became a filming location for The Walking Dead. I am a huge fan of the show so you can only imagine how excited I was to have this happening right outside our front door.
Now that the season is in full swing and they have finished filming for season 3, I thought it would be safe to share some of those moments with you. 

The Funky Shack

This was probably one of my favorite moments.

We couldn't believe all the equipment and the amount of work that goes into setting up to film an episode. This is our side parking lot.

My son Noah was home from school "sick" and had to come to work with me.

My husband got to take a few hours off of work to come down and "help" us at work.

 The other kids came after school to hang out while we were working. They were really good at being quiet as soon as they heard "Rolling." If only that worked for us at home!

I wish we had security like this!

You can't even imagine how hard it is to concentrate and work with "Rick Grimes" sitting right outside your window.

 ...Or "Daryl Dixon" walking around in his leather jacket with a knife strapped to his leg. 

Then during one of our biggest weeks of the year with two big weddings fast approaching, we cleaned out our two back rooms to hold and transform forty zombies and some other extras.

It was such an exciting and amazing experience. Something we would have never imagined happening at The Funky Shack. Who knows maybe it would be fun to have a zombie wedding right here at a filming location. We would most definately be up for that one!

If you are interested in having an event at The Funky Shack give us a shout.

We would also like to thank all of the amazing vendors that helped us execute this beautiful wedding in just two weeks!

We just added a page to our blog and wanted to post this for our daily readers.

We are a very one of a kind event studio catering to the rustic, vintage and whimsical bride. Not only can we design and coordinate every detail of your event but we also have all the items in our inventory to complete and execute your event design. This includes everything from chandeliers, tables, furniture pieces, vintage china, chalkboards, floral containers, props and so much more. It is a must to visit our studio to appreciate our full inventory. We are also always searching out and adding new items.

Jessica and Cory sneak peek by BerryTree Photography

 We knew early this year when Jessica chose us to design her wedding we were working with a bride that would appreciate detail. Detail is what we love so we were thrilled. To add to all the excitement this was the first wedding ever held in the renovated Historic 1904 Courthouse.  We started at the courthouse with fun pennants hanging over the balcony and a vintage dresser outside with her favorite floral and engagement photo.  The stunning images were all taken by Sarah from BerryTree Photography.

 Here is her gorgeous Melissa Sweet gown she purchased from Abriel at Fabulous Frocks.

 Then off the the reception at the Newnan Train Depot. We transformed the rustic depot  into something whimsical and romantic.

We can't wait to see the rest of the amazing images from BerryTree Photography and we will be sure to share them with you!
