“We know how stressful it can be to plan a wedding,” said Jamie Monson, advertising manager at Shooting Star Casino.

“Because of that, we wanted to make the process easier for engaged couples by having all of their wedding necessities under one roof.

“With the help of regionally-based wedding professionals, and ­— of course — the star of TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta,” we are giving them the chance to finalize all of the essential details and have fun in the process!”
