If you want a wedding to remember, you may need a wedding planner who is just as unforgettable.
Enter Baton Bob.
Yes, that Baton Bob, whose real name is Bob Jamerson, the wedding dress-wearing, sometimes baton-twirling local celebrity who draws stares, honks, cheers and jeers along Midtown — and now Buckhead — streets.
Jamerson plans to launch “Out of the Box Weddings with Baton Bob,” a wedding planning service, during the Mad Hatter Bridal Tea from 1-4 p.m. Sunday at Le Maison Rouge, Paris on Ponce, 716 Ponce de Leon Place N.E., Atlanta.
The concept is to offer one-stop shopping for happy couples. He said he has partnered with venues, florists, bakers and printing shops to provide everything a girl or guy needs to say “I do.”
There will be three levels of packages, although final prices have not yet been determined.
“People go to Vegas all the time, why not bring your (butt) to Atlanta,” he said.
And guess who can now officiate at your nuptials? Jamerson.
“Yes, glory be to Jesus,” he said. “I can come in and marry you in one costume and come back later and escort you into the reception wearing another costume. It’s the whole Baton Bob experience. It will create an everlasting memory. I guarantee that 95 percent of your guests will be talking about this wedding.”
No doubt, they will. Could this be a reality show in the making?
He has been working with a Los Angeles production company who had been filming him off and on for a while.
Well, what’s not to like?
Tickets are $15 and include light bites and two drink tickets for champagne/wine. Tickets can be purchased here. Proceeds benefit the Edwards Adult Daycare Center, which is located in Jamerson’s hometown of Martinsville, Va
