As cute as they can be, Courtney teaches middle school art and Brice works for a family trucking business as well as serving in the Air National Guard.0060 c&b 10.13 sm

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


Don’t Miss This AWESOME Wedding Experience!

30 Mar

Finally, an experience with the Bride and Groom in mind.

For those of you who have ever attended a wedding show, you know exactly how overwhelming it can be for a blushing bride. Crowds of people fight their way down the endless rows of vendor booths that are each competing for every bride that walks by. The loud music and bustling activity on the stages leaves every attendee with a headache, aching feet and more questions than answers.

As a wedding planner, this type of frenzied environment goes against every fiber in my body. I want to tell the brides and grooms to steer clear of this craziness… as it will only overwhelm and add stress to their planning process. After all, it is my passion to lead a couple through the process while keeping them sane and having some fun….. and these wedding shows are the complete opposite…..until now!

I am excited to be a part of the second annual Brides on Tour event on April 10th. If you are a Bride-to-be, a Groom or a Mother of the Bride… you must attend this event. It is different than any other wedding event and you will have so much fun! Continue reading
