Kind Words from the Father of the Bride | Asheville NC Wedding Planner

Jennifer’s parents were so sweet and I loved making the day just as perfect for them as it was for Jen and Nick!:

As parents of the bride, we could not be more pleased with the services Leigh provided. The wedding was absolutely beautiful and everything about the wedding went off without a hitch. Leigh’s ideas for decorations, venue layout, vendors, and logistics were always excellent and helped make our celebration outstanding. Her network of vendors is extensive and the vendors she recommended were all outstanding. Leigh made herself available whenever we needed and she always had answers for questions or concerns, no matter how big or how small. She always demonstrated flexibility, but was also willing to make sure everything stayed on track. Leigh, thank you for making this a special day for not only the bride and groom, but also for the parents and all of our guests.


Jennifer and Nick on wedding day!

The Barn at Summerfield Farms Wedding {Jessica + Matthew} | Greensboro NC Wedding Planner

I am so excited to finally be sharing this beautiful summer wedding with y’all. This definitely not your typical outdoor ceremony and barn reception with mason jars and burlap. Jessica LOVES bright hues and sparkle everything but also wanted to pay homage to Matthew’s country roots (he grew up on a farm in Canada).  I think we blended all of the ideas and styles perfectly to create the ultimate #rusticcolorfulglitz wedding! Perry captured the moments and details so beautifully (as she always does!) and we were thrilled to have them featured on Every Last Detail yesterday. Enjoy!!

Best of the best: Details {2014} | Greensboro NC Wedding Planner

Details and design make my world go round. And believe me, this year my brides and I have dreamed up some beauties. This is always one of my absolute favorite posts to put together! I love reminiscing about all of the beautiful design elements, gowns, tablescapes, and more. I would love to hear what YOUR favorite detail was from our year!

First up, Ashley’s beautiful wedding fashion. These blush pink Badgley Mischka’s paired perfectly with her swiss dot layered dress and beaded belt. Swoon city.

One of the things I was most excited about this year was my partnership with my dear friend Kasey of Confetti Grey. She and I have collaborated on so many beautiful paper details this year and this beauty from Teresa and Drew’s May wedding was definitely one of my favorites.

I have no other words for these seriously stunning blooms other than Amy Lynne Originals is simply genius. She took mine and Erin‘s ideas and completely transformed them into the colorful beauty you see below. Favorite bouquet AND halo of all time. Yup, I said it.

Another beauty of a wedding that I have not had a chance to share yet! Christa and Michael had the most fun carnival themed cocktail hour. Painted Plate and I created a spiked sno cone station and the guests absolutely LOVED it.

This wedding will forever have my heart. I am dyyyyyyying to share more details from Katherine and Nathan’s wedding but for now… a sneak peek of this beautiful trio of cakes from the amazing Maxie B’s will just have to do.

This is a double duty detail. I was completely head over heels for the paper details for Carolyn and Mike by Confetti Grey (she took French rustic romance and gave me this. Perfection.) as well as the actual drink concoctions dreamed up by 1618 Concepts. I had a teeny tiny sip of the Bacon Manhattan and holy smokes. I could have drank every drop.

One final sneak peek of one of my favorite weddings ever. We blended wooden farm tables, silky linens, gold accents, and chalkboards for the perfect balance of rustic, organic, and elegance.

Greensboro North Carolina Wedding Planner and Designer

I have so many clients travel from out of the area to Greensboro, North Carolina to host their weddings! So why Greensboro? We have so many unique locations and creative industry partners. No matter what style wedding you are planning, you are sure to find the perfect fit for your big day. Below are my top three reasons to tie the knot in Greensboro:

1. Location, Location, Location: If you have family spread across the state (or country as is the case for some of my clients!) Greensboro is a wonderful location for everyone to come together. With just a few hours drive from the coast and mountains, your out of state guests can enjoy your wedding weekend then easily visit some of North Carolina’s most beautiful spots. We also have, in my opinion, some of the most beautiful and accommodating venues in the state. Some of my favorites include the prestigious and elegant Greensboro Country Club, Revolution Mill Studios (a renovated cotton mill turned event space), and Proximity Hotel (one of the leading eco-friendly luxury hotels in the country). There are also so many smaller cities like Summerfield and Kernersville just minutes from the city proper that have beautiful country views and amazing venues!

2. Foodie Food: Greensboro is home to some amazing restaurants and caterers. From good ol fashioned Southern pork barbecue to elegant five star plated meals, you can find it all and at an affordable rate. Food trucks are becoming more and more popular in the city and are a wonderful addition to a wedding. You can go casual and serve your entire meal from the truck (everyone orders from a select menu) or you just simply reap the the logistical benefits of your caterer having one (works wonders at a venue that does not have a catering kitchen). There are so many amazing restaurant options that are perfect for your rehearsal dinner experience as well. Did you know you can have your rehearsal dinner at the Greensboro Grasshopper stadium during the warmer months? How fun is that!!?

3. Something for Everyone: Whether you are looking for a classic, Southern wedding or a more modern take, the Greensboro wedding industry can accommodate with ease. The area is rich with history but also has a healthy respect for the modern couple. You can find the perfect creative partners and venues to work with regardless of your style, traditions, religion, or sexual orientation.

I would LOVE to hear from you some more reasons why Greensboro, NC is a great city to host a wedding celebration!!!
