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.

Brendan + Erin : True Southern Soiree Atlanta Style

14 Oct

          BROERE__0703
Traditional. Southern. Black Tie.

These are the words we kept on the front of the planning folder for Erin and Brendan’s big Southern affair in the capital of the South. Home to sweet tea, Chick-fil-a, Coca Cola, sweet peaches and the world’s busiest airport. That’s right, we were heading to Atlanta…. more specifically Buckhead.

There is something charming about tBROERE__0764he old Southern city of Atlanta. It always makes me think of the show Designing Women. With their fine southern accents and full knowledge of Emily Post’s Etiquette rules… the South truly knows how to host a party and accommodate their guests. Erin and Brendan’s wedding weekend was no different, treating their guests to true Southern charm.

When Brendan and Erin got engaged, they knew they wanted a formal Atlanta affair…. black tie. The bride is a nurse who grew up in North Carolina and the groom is a lawyer from Georgia. The young couple made their home in Buckhead Atlanta.

They wanted to incorporate timeless elegance into their day. When we met for their design consultation, we were so excited to look over aisles and aisles and more aisles of décor items from A Legendary Event in Atlanta. Their warehouse was our dream come true for this event. We decided on sterling silver containers for the centerpieces, taper candles, candelabras and lush floral design. Neutral colors and flickering candlelight made the entire space glow. It was traditional Southern style and I loved every single detail.

Carrying out the True Southern Affair, the guests were met at cocktail hour with two bars, a “His Bar”, which featured whiskey and a “Her’s Bar” with Gelato Champagne coolers. Guests could also partake in a Whiskey Tasting upstairs and a Cigar Bar on the large estate’s porch.

After a decadent dinner and lots of dancing, guests enjoyed a late night pizza slice before loading up the buses to head back to their hotel. It was a truly elegant, timeless affair for one of the most beautiful couples.

Thank you to Bill Broere and Lauren from Bill Broere Photography for capturing the details and sharing the beautiful photos!

The ceremony sat on the large sprawling farmland of the Petty Family (Richard Petty, racing legend), now known as Adaumont Farm. As you drive through the large iron gates and over the stone bridge on the tree-lined road, it’s something out of a movie. You notice beautiful white fencing holding grazing horses, large trees that have been on the land for a long time and nothing but the North Carolina sky! The ceremony was on a lovely piece of this land that overlooks the beautiful lake and quant covered bridge, under the wooden pergola. As her mother walked the beautiful bride down the long grassy aisle, the sun gave her a stunning glow…. or perhaps she was just a blushing bride. Continue reading
