Foundation for the Carolinas Wedding: Lauren + Patrick

Ahhhh Lauren+Patrick.…where do I start? Let’s put it this way, I cried introducing myself to everyone at their rehearsal (THE REHEARSAL)–and I am not a crier. They live in NYC and I wish every day that they would move down to Charlotte so we can hang out, truly I do. I have a lot of favorite ‘parts’ of this wedding–planning overall, my long-winded emails from the sweetest bride around, my conversations with the groom to talk about said long emails and scheme up surprises for Lauren (Patrick–you no doubt are already making an amazing husband to your amazing wife), their level of trust in me, how much they cared, how appreciate they were, the custom linens, the largest table/linen we’ve ever dreamed up…this list truly goes on. Dream clients, and I miss you two dearly. So much love and happiness for you both. xo

My amazing vendor team–there are no words. You always blow me away and it can’t happen with out YOU.
