Real Wedding- An Intimate Lodge Style Affair

We love intimate weddings and we cannot lie. Early spring during our initial consultation with the bride, we were able to capture a very clear vision of how she imagined her wedding day. She wanted her and as well as her fiancés wedding day to reflect their true purpose for getting married and to share this meaningful occasion with their closest friends and relatives. “I want my wedding day to feel personal.”

This wedding of fifty guest was filled with a charming ceremony full of joyful tears and heartwarming personal vows by both the bride and groom. Subsequently, a romantic and delectable dinner party was held for guest in an intimate setting filled with estate tables, floral details, and romantic candlelight, Later, guest were entertained with a diversified cultural party vibe that kept their tribe of loving family and friends on the dance floor all night.

It was our intent to ensure this lovely couples wedding day vision was fully executed and with the partnership of some wonderful and talented vendors, the bride left saying- “my day was magical.”

The Perfect Morning

An intimate celebration filled with love and laughs in the middle of a beautiful white garden, was just the right way for Lauren Flanders and Juan Canizales to unite as one.  

Give us pretty pastel colored florals,  a little morning sun, trendy floral print bridesmaid dresses, an acoustic guitarist, a jaw dropping stunning bride and a dapper groom, and we'll give you a garden brunch wedding fit for the perfect couple.  

From day one, it was very important for Lauren and Juan to have an intimate celebration to vow their love for each other in front of their closest family and friends.  They received just what they wanted in the perfect morning brunch wedding at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in Belmont, NC.  We enjoyed the planning journey for these two love birds over the last year and we wish them all the best life has to offer.

Thank you to all the vendors who made Lauren and Juan's special day a success.  Her last words to us were, "This was more than I ever dreamed; it was perfect."

A Royal Shower Fit for a Prince


The words, "This was a Dream" by mommy, Courtney Ajinca and "This was so dope" by daddy, Alex Ajinca ring clear in our heads after this weekends celebration of life. We had the honor to plan and design this beautiful couples shower for the arrival of their second child,  "Baby Ajinca."  We didn't want to plan the typical baby shower, rather one that would stretch our creative minds and give guest in attendance a "wow factor" they would be slow to forget.  So, we pulled an inspiration page from the 2006 Marie Antoinette movie and captured a pastel color pallet, luxurious fabric textures, royal entertainers, and decadent desserts to execute this royal baby celebration.  Baby Ajinca will make his arrival in a couple of months and we can't to see all the preciousness and joy he will bring to the world. This celebration was most certainly a royal treat and we are excited to share some beautiful details photographed by Casey Hendrickson Photography.

Love in the Garden

We loved teaming up with Casey Hendrickson of Casey Hendrickson Photography to shoot Lauren and Juan's engagement session at the magical Biltmore Estate in Asheville NC.  The grounds and gardens added the perfect touch to this couples garden themed wedding that will take place later this year at the beautiful Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in Belmont NC. Stay tuned to our Instagram and FaceBook page to follow this fabulous couples journey to the altar.  In the meantime, enjoy these beautiful photos of their lovely engagement session.
