I have the pleasure and honor of witnessing a lot of couples say their vows and become husband and wife; but this ceremony truly was special. These two-they are really, really, REALLY in love. Every wedding-related meeting was ‘fun’–not stuffy, not particular, not worried about ‘the details’…at the end of the day, they just wanted to get married and to have a great party with the people they love most. And they did, just that. Brittany+Joey, I wish you nothing but happiness and joy in your marriage. Congrats xo!

Thanks to these awesome people for making it such a great one :)

This cake. Hilarious. Watching people’s reactions as they walked by was a favorite moment of mine. A little back story: Joey is a NASCAR driver (a pretty damn good one at that), and he and Brittany dreamed this idea up-loved it. SO them.

Callahan’s Baptism Fri, 20 Feb 2015 12:54:39 +0000 Cal was baptized on the most gorgeous February day–do y’all remember that one Sunday where it hit 70 degrees a few weeks ago–ya, that day. It was perfect. We celebrated with our parents, siblings, my grandmother (who he is named after) and his Godparents at The Duke Mansion afterwards. It was such a special day for our family. Of course, I somehow turned it in to a full blown event (I can’t help it). Thanks so much to all of my vendor friends for helping make it a special day! Thanks so much to Allison Kuhn for capturing it for us :).

My son loves me so much.

{Inspired} A Fowl Fall Fete Mon, 16 Feb 2015 12:25:22 +0000 Leah+Dustin are set to marry this Fall at The Duke Mansion. Today, we’re out and about doing lots of planning while she is in town from Raleigh. Leah Jane emailed me and asked for something ‘different’–music to my ears. We’re incorporating a lot of meaningful elements like a family crest, and a love for bird hunting in to this special day. I simply can not wait. Allison Kuhn Photography will be there to capture it all for us!

Mint Museum Uptown Wedding: Danielle + PJ Mon, 26 Jan 2015 13:06:12 +0000 Danielle+PJ were my first wedding back post-baby–and I was READY! I fell in love with both this couple and design from day 1.  They really trusted me to do something unique and that is just the best feeling. Danielle still tells me that she wants her house to look like her wedding one day-love that. This was also one of those weddings where the PEOPLE were just awesome–everyone was. It was such a treat to come back from maternity leave (although…not sure I REALLY had that!), to such an cool group. The moms were the best–the BEST. They both came up to me multiple times in the night to thank me. Doesn’t get better than that. The love for this couple, and that this couple has for each other was palpable. Truly a pleasure you two! Congrats again xo (Stay tuned for this feature in Carolina Bride!)

{Inspired} Modern Meets Classic at The Mint Thu, 22 Jan 2015 12:06:25 +0000 Jennifer+Steven are getting married this summer at The Mint Museum Uptown. Today, we are out and about working on design for them! They want to be sure to showcase the “Uptown” city-feel (you know I love me some Uptown Charlotte–right up my alley), but still have a timeless and classic event to look back on. Here’s a little sneak peak :) (Top left photograph by Allison Kuhn Photography).
