Biltmore Estate Wedding: Brittany + Joey

Brittany+Joey were married on the most beautiful day in December. 12.13.14–how cool is that wedding date? 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.

I flipped when I saw that cake for the first time as well — I really thought it had been destroyed by something. You killed B&J’s wedding. xoxo.

Callahan’s Baptism

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 :).

Venue: The Duke Mansion (this place is quickly becoming a family favorite for life events for us! Thanks, Vanessa!)

{Inspired} A Fowl Fall Fête

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!

{Inspired} A Tuscan Affair

Danielle+Blaine are set to marry this Fall at The Foundation for the Carolinas and want a very Italian dinner party! Think family-style, cozy and intimate. We’ve been having a blast planning. Almond Leaf Studios will be shooting and I can’t wait to see the results! Here’s just a little peek in to what we’re planning.
