Fruit, seasonal greenery, patterned linens, and brass table numbers? Yes please! I absolutely loved putting together this table design for Jamie and Brandon. I loved our modern twist on a holiday color palette!

Adaumont Farm Wedding {Teresa + Drew} | Charlottle NC Wedding Planner

I have to say.. I was pretty sad when this wedding was over. Not only did I love planning all the little details, but I loved spending time with this couple. Teresa and Drew both have the most wonderful personalities and are just those kind of people you want to be friends with. So the fact that they had a seriously swoon worth day, made it all worth while. And we were oh so lucky to have Liz Grogan to capture all of the pretty. Pop open a bottle of Cheerwine and enjoy.. this is one you will definitely want to pin. P.S. Check out their feature on Style Me Pretty!

In true Southern style, Teresa and I put their custom monogram on anything standing still!

One of my favorite features of Adaumont Farm is the beautiful porch. I have had many a maid of honor spend the morning rocking in these chairs writing her toast.

Absolutely, hands down, my favorite bouquets ever. Peonies, ferns, ribbons… perfection.

I am always a sucker for a cathedral length veil. Especially down a long aisle full of petals. Swoon!

I love this moment Liz captured of Teresa sipping champagne and getting out of the ceremony get away car for photos. It is so timeless!

At cocktail hour, guests enjoyed spiked lemonade and fried green tomato sliders. YUM.

Hi, my name is Leigh and I am addicted to linens. I know, I have a problem.  But seriously, how perfect are these blue seersucker napkins and the rosey runner?

We wanted each table to feel like dinner in a garden and I think we knocked it out of the park. The Farmer’s Wife created these beautiful trees that were simple but had a major wow factor!

If your photographer wants to pull you out of dinner for ten minutes, DO IT. Why? See below :)

Perks of a Planner Vol 7 | Greensboro NC Wedding Planner

Alexa’s Photography | Erin + Brandon’s Willow Oaks Plantation Wedding in Eden, NC

Today, my friend, Chris, the wonderful sales manager and event coordinator of Willow Oaks Plantation, is sharing her thoughts on the perks of a wedding planner. Willow Oaks is one of my favorite venues and I LOVE working with Chris .. she is so accommodating to our brides!

Being the event coordinator and sales manager at Willow Oaks Plantation, I often get confused as the wedding planner. With every bridal tour, one of my many questions is always, “Do you have a wedding planner?” If they don’t, I let them know I am happy to make a referral. A bride cannot go wrong in hiring a person who will take all of her stress and worries away. As a bride, you will only do this wedding thing once! A wedding planner has event experience and will be able to help with all facets of the wedding. Your wedding planner has contacts with florists, bakeries, rental companies, venues, photographers, videographers, and more. Your wedding planner can take you through all of your pre-planning to the actual day of. Speaking for myself, I have a referral list that consists of two planners…. Leigh is definitely one of them! It is a joy to work with a professional that has a positive attitude, a plan and can execute them eloquently! It sure makes my job easier!

Inspiration Monday | Reidsville NC Wedding Planner

Whitebox Photography | Amanda + Evan’s Belmont Estate Wedding in Eden, North Carolina

Amanda and Evan had the quintessential Spring Southern wedding featuring a beautiful church ceremony and a reception at a local antebellum home. Guests enjoyed cocktails and fresh lemonade post-ceremony on a large veranda before dining family style and dancing the night away. So how do you get this look? A+E had the most beautiful and fresh Spring color palette with pops of lavender, white, and soft yellow. A classic white cake with detailed piping, fresh blooms in mint julep cups, and sweet ribbon bows are just a few ways that this classic look was brought together. I loved Amanda’s flower hair piece.. it was the perfect way to show her fun personality! What do you think of this look?
