Summer Love Birds | Fearrington Village | Chapel Hill Wedding | Greenery Wedding | NC Wedding Planner

Toni and Pat were a delight to work with throughout the planning process. Toni loved dahlias so it was only fitting to incorporate them throughout the floral design. Combining the soft pink dahlias in with vibrant greenery made the summertime palette pop. We loved the different shades of grey chiffon dresses that the bridesmaids wore to complement the soft shades of pink in the bouquets. Transforming the Fearrington barn is always such a fun process. We mixed together white washed farm tables with white chiavari chairs along with natural oval back chairs and a gorgeous textured linen. The sky was a beautiful carolina blue shinning on these two love birds throughout their whole day! Cheers to a life time of happiness T & P.

Nothing welcomes guests to the wedding weekend like an authentic southern crab boil Reherasal Dinner! The Boathouse was the perfect location to host the welcome party for Kenan & Chas. Guests were welcomed with cold drinks and a beautiful view of the water. We loved the design of blue and white to complement the southern vibe along with seersucker napkins. Guests were served the crab boil in traditional netting to reflect the fresh catch feeling of the food and boy was it fresh! What a great way to get the wedding weekend started!

Bay 7 Wedding | Pink and Teal Watercolor Wedding | Durham Wedding Planner

We had such a fun time planning this Durham wedding! The moment we met Sara and Greg it was clear that their energy was contagious! As the design talks began Sara said that she did not have vision but proudly showed off her favorite paper pattern. The wondrous floral watercolor pattern of bright pink, sunset orange, and subtle greens proved to be the best inspiration for this bright happy couple.
