The Best Is Yet to Come | NC Wedding Planner

Can you believe it is 2016!? The past year has absolutely flown by and I am stunned to look at my calendar to see we are almost into March. Spring wedding season is quickly approaching — so bring on the peonies and soft color palettes!

If it has been a while since you caught up with me in business or in life, there are several exciting things that have come about in the past year or so. Since we are in the early stages of a new year, I thought what better time than now to sit a spell, say hello, and let you know what I have been up to!

Let’s Socialize: Recently, I have fallen [more] in love with Instagram and Snapchat. I love connecting with clients and my favorite partners by following their work and sharing some of my own! If you do not follow me on these platforms, you can find me at @leighpweddings on both! My Instagram is filled lovely and curated images of my work taken by some of my favorite photographers with a few real time snaps thrown in from wedding days and my adventures. That said, Snapchat is easily becoming my newest addiction. I love sharing behind the scenes of LPW and personal snaps of my life (read: so many snaps of my dogs and my favorite tunes).  You can still find me on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest too!!

Full service, all the way: While I love my former coordination and partial planning clients so much, a full service experience has always been the heart of my business. As of last year, LPW is a full service only company specializing in creating once in a lifetime celebrations with great love. For me, specifically, full service means taking care of every single detail for my wonderful clients from the planning to the event design to the production of the event — I create it all! Another key component to my full service experience is partnering with a curated list of event professionals that really understand the level of service needed for my clientele. I also create a detailed design plan that paints a beautiful picture of what the event will truly look like from floral design to tailored linens to bespoke lighting and everything in between. I love that with this level of service my clients feel really taken care of and to continue that experience, I limit my event schedule to only ten to fifteen events a year.

Bring on the party: Weddings will always be the heart of what I do, but I love creating other types of celebrations as well!��From rehearsal dinners to social gatherings to corporate events, this past year has really become a melting pot of different events for myself and the LPW team. You may remember this fabulous Furniture Market launch party featuring none other than Eric Church or this sweet, Southern rehearsal dinner. Producing such a variety of events keeps me inspired and on my toes!

A little wanderlust: Greensboro and the Triad of North Carolina are my home and events here are always so magical. That said, more and more of my clients have looked to other destinations in the South for their celebrations and I am so thankful that they ask me to come along! My map dots so far span across North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia and I hope to expand into South Carolina (I’m looking at you, Charleston), Tennessee, and anywhere else my clients’ hearts take me!

Let’s get married: The most exciting news so far for 2016 is that Bryan and I are getting married! Now that we have decided to tie the knot close to home instead of afar like originally planned, we have officially set the date and are ready to celebrate. I have decided against blogging or posting religiously about the wedding but I do hope to share a few details here and there for those that are interested! Everyone has been so sweet and happy for us and we could not ask for more!

Eric Church Highway to Home Launch Party | High Point Event Planner

Designing and producing this very special event was one of the highlights of 2015! It was such a pleasure to work with Home Meridian International and Pulaski Furniture on their celebration of the launch of Highway to Home, the upcoming furniture line for Grammy award winning country superstar, Eric Church. The event kicked off Fall 2015 High Point Furniture Market with quite a bang! Our special guests enjoyed an evening of delectable bites and Southern sips from 1618 On Location before a personal performance from EC himself.
