Laura + Peter – Roof with a View Wedding

There is no way to describe Laura and Peter’s wedding day other than magical.  I loved Laura’s elegant boho look, complete with a stunning Jenny Packham gown and floral crown.  These two met at their gym, and when Peter proposed, it was with an amazing emerald ring – so unique and so totally Laura.

They decided to entirely turn over the reins to Hall & Webb to design their dream wedding reception at Roof with a View.  And when I mean entirely, Laura basically told them “surprise me!” And surprise they did.  They created a breathtaking atmosphere that exuded the couple’s style perfectly.  The show stopper was the huge tall arrangements of eucalyptus leaves spray painted gold created by A Place for Flowers, and the light fixture that hung over the dance floor.  So unique, and it set the stage perfectly for the couple’s romantic celebration.  These two are SO full of life — it was such an honor to be with them on such a sweet day.  You guys are the best! xo


Erin + Aaron – Charlotte Engagement Session

I adore these two!  As you can imagine, things could get confusing since they have the same name — so Aaron has been deemed “Ron,” to all of their friends, or “Ronald” as Erin calls him.  I bet he never thought he’d inherit a new name when he met Erin!  I love it though.  Ron and Erin killed it during their engagement session on a pretty late summer evening.  Can’t wait for the Spring ’16 wedding! xo

Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden Wedding – Ellie + Matt

Ellie and Matt are college sweethearts who met on the charming campus of Davidson College.  Ellie a field hockey player, and Matt a football star, they were the perfect match.  These two have the biggest hearts, and nothing shows that more than the professional paths they each ended up taking.  Ellie is now a school psychologist, while Matt is in med school.  This day was so special to be a part of. The minute I met Ellie and Matt I instantly fell in love with them; their witty personalities, strong relationships with their families, and their college romance story. They are just the absolute best!

Hall & Webb did a wonderful job making Ellie’s wedding vision come to life.  The enormous tent set on the back lawn was the center of the celebration.  It served as the ceremony site after a little rain rolled in (but you’d never know that wasn’t the original plan – Ellie and Matt had such amazingly positive attitudes about it), and was lit up with soft twinkling string lights (a personal fave) for the dance party that boogied all night to the ATL Groove Factory. They were AWESOME!

From a very personal place in my heart, I wish these two a lifetime of happiness.

Charlotte Country Club Wedding – Megan + Tom

Megan and Tom’s wedding day was filled with Tradition, family and lots of beautiful, beautiful color! With a love of their Irish heritage, books and travel, The Graceful Host created an unforgettable wedding day for these two centered around all of their favorite things.  After saying “I do” Megan and Tom jetted off to Ireland where they will live for a year while Tom continues his studies to become a Dr.  They tied this “little” detail into their incredible invitation suite created by Elisabeth Rose.  Megan’s wedding party color palette (“if you can call it that,” she joked!) was mismatched but coordinated — perfect for this unique couple.  Luscious jewel tones showed up in everything from the bridesmaids dresses to the centerpieces.  All of their favorite food and drink were served to their reception guests – popcorn and craft beer in the bar decorated with UNC memorabilia, and mac and cheese and a custom whiskey bar in the ballroom.  No detail was overlooked by these two.  It was the perfect day for this fun loving couple filled with life and joy!
