Carolina Blue

There is no question, this family loves The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Upon arrival to their hotels, guests were given a sweet treat with a few favorites of both the bride and groom! Trace loves Natural Brew Root Beer, so naturally it had to be included. When Izzy was in boarding school, her family frequented Richardson’s Candy Kitchen, so 2 chocolate truffles from Richards.....

McColl Center AFR Networker

Last year we were asked to design a space for the AFR Networker Event. The theme of the event was embrace your senses. The McColl Center for Visual Art made the perfect backdrop to do just that.  Guests walked in through a fully functioning art studio. They were then greeted by delicious cupcakes by Cake Expressions by Lisa. The space lent itself to a very masculine man-cave feel, so of course w.....

Brothers We Love!

I’m always a professional even though our business is always personal.  As many know I lost my brother, Cory, January 19th to pneumonia, he was 42 years old.  (yes this is the same brother that was just married nine months ago) As people do, I have tortured and comforted myself by looking through every photo archive, every old album and every text message.  I was very thankful to find a tex.....

Great Vendors, Great Results

Wow!  I guess we have been busy.  How fortunate we are to work with so many great client families and vendors. There is so much creativity and work that goes into designing and executing these magical moments for our clients. We have smiled through pouring rain, the hottest of days, in barns, on the coldest of nights in the middle of the woods and in the prettiest garages! When a clie.....

Love is Sweet!

Love is sweet in October! October is often associated with the color pink so we wanted to share a few great photos of some yummy pink sweet treats that were center stage at two of our weddings. Lauren & George got married this past May over Mother’s Day weekend. What better way to honor the mothers in attendance than with a candy bar that was nearly as sweet as each of them?! Debra Hall .....

A Rainy Day at The Duke Mansion

Yes, I love this business.  Yes, I cry when my sweet brides walk down the aisle.  Imagine the emotions when an iconic Charlotte wedding professional (who happened to play the very first wedding I worked at Quail Hollow Club) hired me to plan his daughters wedding.  I was ecstatic, humbled and thrilled to oblige.  Smitty & Jill Flynn’s sweet daughter Kate married Josh, a fellow Chicagoan,.....
