A Royal Shower Fit for a Prince

Bonjour!

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.

Dancing in the Rain

No amount of rain, thunder, or lighting was going to stop this fairytale wedding from happening just the way it was planned.  Chris and Morgan were married this past May at a unique farm tucked away in Statesville NC called Green Gables Farms.  Upon entrance to this beautifully manicured farm, you immediately feel the southern hospitality as you are greeted by ravishing farmland filled with every breed of horse and farm animal you could imagine.

The details of this wedding were magnificently scripted by the bride and no stone was left unturned.  From the grooms brother who is an active military soldier surprising him moments before the wedding (total tear jerker) to the choreographed father and daughter dance by Morgan and her dad, this day was a dream come true.  We thank Chris and Morgan for allowing us to be a part of their special day and wish nothing but the best for them along their journey as husband and wife.

Here are a few of our favorite pictures capturing their day.  Thanks to Indigo Photography of Charlotte for the amazing photos.

 

 

The Key to the Bentley

Proverbs 18:22 says, "He who finds a wife finds a good thing."  When Andre Bentley found Kendra Vinson, he indeed found his lifetime treasure.

Over a year ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Kendra and Andre as well as Kendra's parents as they were in search of a wedding planner.  After Kendra GRILLED me (lol) at the planning consultation meeting with her big book of wedding questions, I was thrilled to hear they had selected FC Events to plan their big day.

I meet with a lot of couples and each carry their own special uniqueness.  Kendra and Andre were no different.  They knew what they wanted, they trusted we could make it happen, and we had an absolute blast in the process!  As a planner, I seek the couple that will allow me to do just what I love to do; be creative and plan with vision in mind.

The love and respect these two have for one another is undeniable.  Their love and outlook on life is contagious and we were grateful to have been a part of such a memorable moment in their life.  We thank Kendra, Andre, and their families for entrusting FC Events with such a precious event and look forward to seeing this couples love blossom for a lifetime.  Continue to keep your love as fabulous as both of you are!

Thank you to all the vendors who played a major part in making Kendra and Andre's wedding day a success.
