Abbie + Kasey : Moore Springs Manor in Westfield, NC

12 Oct

AKWedding_201501122When you meet Abby & Kasey, you instantly like them. They are gracious, kindhearted and so in love. You imagine them with very social lives, having friends over all the time, because they are just so jubilant to be around, of course they would have thousands of friends. It makes you want to hang out with them and “chill”. They are the “chill” kind.

For their wedding day, of course they picked the laid-back Moore Springs Manor, an amazingly gorgeous piece of NC Heaven in Westfield, NC. A hop-skip-jump from the Triad, it is so worth the 45-minute drive from Greensboro. You start to wonder where these curvy country roads are taking you and then WHAM! The impressive view of Pilot Mountain slaps you in the face. You can’t help but exhale and relax just being there. Let me kick up my boots and drink something out of a mason jar and I’m happy.

The Manor, the fields, the gardens, the barns and the newly added event space are the perfect setting for an intimate North Carolina event! The personal touches are what made this day so special, and the beautiful bridesmaids dresses! Homemade table numbers made from old address numbers, pallet photos, and so much more! Check out Abby & Kasey’s wedding, it was an honor to be a part of their “Chill” Day … and as their sign says, it was the Best. Day. Ever.

Lindsay + David: JH Adams Inn

15 Jan

image_2Lindsay and Dave Thomas were married at J.H. Adams Inn in High Point, NC this past Summer. David is a good ole’ country boy — trying to make it to MLB — and Lindsay is a Physician Liaison. They met and were raised in the same community.

Rugged meets Class!  This event was anything but ordinary. What we loved most was their unique ability to incorporate their own style, pieces of their “story” and their fun-filled details throughout their event. It was what made it so extraordinary. David’s love of sports was showcased throughout the event, beginning when the guest were asked to “autograph” a wooden bat in place of a traditional guest book.

Some would say they couldn’t be more opposite… especially when you’re raised to pull for different rival teams. David’s family pride themselves as HUGE Duke fans and Lindsay’s family wears Carolina blue. I knew she was head-over-heels when Lindsay chose to symbolize marrying into a Duke family by hiding Duke Blue pom poms under each seat and the Duke Fight Song as their introductions were made.  Imagine a sea of Duke blue split with snarls from the Carolina side. What a wonderful way to start this playful reception!

From good ole’ Karaoke to Krispy Kreme doughnuts for the ride home,  this wedding was energetic, fun and memorable. Thank you Adam Mowery Photography for capturing it all for us!

Jaime + Justin: Married in Downtown Greensboro

1 Oct

Jaime + Justin

Jamie was a dream bride for a wedding coordinator. From the first time Kat and I sat across from her at Coffeeology on Tate Street, we knew this would be a bride that we would end up calling a friend. Sitting a spell with her having coffee just felt like reminiscing with an old friend.

Jamie, as one of her many positive attributes, puts anyone in her presence at ease and wanted her wedding to have the same ambiance.  So we were off with a “laid back, wildflower, cool breeze, butterfly kisses” kind of theme. Continue reading

Real Wedding: Michael and Gabbi

4 Jan

I know I am way behind on posting this Castle McCulloch wedding from July 2011… but better late than never, right?

Michael and Gabbi are two of the most original people I have ever met. They are both very creative and unique and I knew as soon as I met them that I would love helping them on their wedding day.

I met with Gabbi a year before she decided to hire me. She did much of the planning and then quickly got overwhelmed and knew she needed some help for the wedding…. Sound familiar? It happens all the time!

Held at Castle McCullough, their wedding was full of personal touches…including centerpieces that the bride and groom made themselves as well as potted plants as wedding favors! Their wedding was “green” and the guests had a wonderful time. The castle was decked out with wrapped vines and a potted tree for their “Tree Ceremony”. The girls all wore 1940’s inspired hair do’s and the guys were looking good in their fedoras…. Did I mention how unique this couple was?

The couple’s family was wonderful as well. The bride’s father, a fire fighter, did a lot of the outside décor for dinner and the groom’s mother hired us to also take care of the rehearsal dinner at Steak Street.

It was a wonderful weekend that we enjoyed being a part of.

Congrats Gabbi and Michael, Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your day!
