These two love birds, Krystle + Alex, celebrated their union on November 12th, 2016. Originally they were planning to tie the knot a year prior, but our groom had to travel overseas, as he proudly serves for our country in the Marine Corps! Plans can change when you serve in the military, therefore the wedding had to be put on hold. Over a year later we received a phone call, and to our excitement it was Krystle + Alex. The couple surprised us by asking if we could still h
Despite a drizzly-day that forced their outdoor ceremony indoors, Sarah & Justin had a beautiful wedding at the delightful Poplar Grove Plantation on May 13th, 2017. The original plan was to have their wedding ceremony at the back courtyard of the Manor House in front of an astonishing circled arbor! Well, plan A didn’t work for us that day but let us tell you, plan B turned out to be JUST AS BEAUTIFUL if not more! The arbor, designed by Pink Blooms Florist, made of lush gree

The wedding day started-off with the bride and bridesmaids getting ready in the plantation home where Bobby Pins & Blushing Brides glammed-up the girls.

If we could describe Julia and Luke’s wedding in two words, they would be elegant and timeless. These two sweethearts got married on March 4th, 2017 and chose The Brooklyn Arts Center as their venue. Our couple had their ceremony in front of the majestic cathedral windows, where Verzaal’s Florist designed an exquisite piece composed by lush greenery and white florals. It stood suspended by the magical work of Illuminating Events, who also provided the up-lighting which gave t
(Photo Feature: Kate Supa Photography) Budgeting for a wedding may seem like a piece of cake to a wedding professional, but to the couples who have never been married before, sometimes it's the big elephant in the room that doesn't want to be discussed. It's very easy to go over budget due to the unexpected wedding expenses that most couples don't take into account. As a wedding planner we are able to provide insight to our clients in order to help keep them on budget for t
Katie + Kyle said their "I Do's" on Saturday, June 4, 2016 at the beautiful Airlie Gardens in Wilmington, NC. Their ceremony took place at the iconic pergola, which sits right off the lake surrounded by luscious florals, ivy, and oak tress filled with Spanish moss. This location is tucked away in its own little nook of the gardens that gave the ceremony the perfect coziness that Katie + Kyle desired. The setting for their ceremony had enchanted garden written all over it.
On April 25th, Beau's Coffee shop here in Wilmington, NC posted a video on their Facebook page. It was of Lillie, the owner's daughter, asking Trevor, a Beau's Coffee employee, to prom in a very cute and personalized way! Trevor and Lillie have been friends for the past 5 years, and Lillie just knew she would have a great time if she took Trevor as her date. After all, his favorite thing to do is dance! The video has gained lots of interest and happened to go viral. Ther
Featured Photo: Jen Huang Photography A wedding is an act of love that joins two people together in marriage. Better yet, a wedding is a large celebration. With a celebration comes planning, designing, and of course pressure. I mean, who doesn't want to throw the best party of the year? Many bridal couples are in search of ways to make sure their wedding is a day to remember. They want their guests to walk away saying, "Wow, now that was fun!" So what are some ways to ma
I must say, styled shoots are becoming one of my favorite projects lately. Don't get me wrong, I love weddings, but styled shoots allow a designer like me to play with different methods and trends so brides can see that there's an endless amount of possibilities for their big day! I teamed up with a handful of amazing vendors for this winter styled shoot, but I have to give extra credit to Marcus Anthony Photography who had the vision of an all white shoot. At first I wasn'
Can you guess what is one of the number one regrets I've heard from brides over the years?! They regret not hiring a wedding planner. I'm not just saying this because I'm in the industry, it's the honest truth. You would be surprised how far down the list a wedding planner ranks in the eyes of a bride and groom. Sometimes planners don't even make the list. Many brides (and grooms for that matter) underestimate what it takes to design, plan, and coordinate a wedding. It's
It's the time of year when you've been invited to a handful of holiday parties starting from Thanksgiving all the way until New Years. Yes, they can be an absolute blast, but have you ever been to one of those awkward parties where you'd make any excuse to bolt out of there as quickly as possible? Honestly, I think we've all had a taste of that piece of the pie at least once in our adulthood. No fun, right? Let's flip the script... Are you throwing a holiday party this yea
