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.”

Blended Love

It was a great pleasure to coordinate the wedding of Trisha Shattuck and Matt Walters.   Their story was one that would make you tear up but rejoice in a beautiful outcome.  Trisha, who was widowed at the time she met Matt, had recently moved to the area to begin her life with her two beautiful children.  After a special dinner with Matt and her children, Trisha realized Matt had a spirit of patience and love that instantly made her realize he was the one.  

Trisha and Matt were married at the luxurious Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge in Charlotte NC.  The day was absolutely beautiful.  As you will see, Matt is a graduate of Clemson University-  hence the wedding colors of purple and orange.  

There were so many attributes that made this wedding magical.  From the bride and groom choosing to do a "first look," to the blending of a family with the sand ceremony.  The added touch of a caricature at the cocktail hour and reception was a hit among guest as they partied away to a live band.  Many thanks to all the vendors that made this day possible (listed at the end of this blog).
