Ok – here is the first of my sort of THANK YOU to all the people in the Triangle that made EC’s and my big day such a blessing! So here goes (and some are not in the Triangle, but bear with me)!
The jewelry that my bridemaids wore were done by Meg Lane of Pretty Things By Meg. I’ve gotten other fun jewelry from her in the past and when I saw these earrings I knew I had to have them for my girls! Then I asked her if she could design a necklace and she happily agreed. This was all done even while she was preparing for her own sister’s wedding. Meg – thank you! My girls loved them. I might even have to borrow them one day to wear!
Keeping with jewelry: I love Kelly at Moon and Lola. I’ve known her now almost as long as I’ve been back in RDU. Such a pleasure to work with, to photo her beautiful designs. She is such a blessing. EC and I got to sit down and help talk through what I wanted my earrings to look like and she even shipped them to me since time was getting close and I couldn’t get to Apex. She is a blessing to me! Thank you Kelly!
The bridal luncheon was at Vivace of Raleigh (located in North Hills). I first went to Vivace back during restaurant week with Sherri – I don’t even think EC was on the horizon then) – but we had a great time!
So many people helped make delicious foods for our dessert reception!
The three main players were:
Sugarland from Chapel Hill. Our amazing cake – man, I can’t believe we only got a bite of it! Can’t wait to dig into the top of our cake! The baker was a delight to work with at the beginning when she was the one who did our consultation. We went for a creme brulee cake! Ask for it! Stunning and simple!
Sweet Memories did most of the cupcakes. Simply delicious. I photo’d some of their work in Apex when I was working with Moon and Lola so I knew I wanted to enjoy some of their tasty delights at our wedding. Sadly we only got one – but man was it delicious. We devoured it! And we got so many compliments on their cupcakes! They were a pleasure to work with as well.
Allison Roark of Allison’s Cookies made some of her stunning and mouth-watering sugar cookies. So cute and simple and elegant and yummy – even days later! Thank you Allison for making these and our dessert a few days earlier!
Many other friends made our reception one of a kind! I loved it and so did all of our friends!
Sherri at Greenflash Productions is a wonderful friend and a unique photographer! She was such an amazing photographer to work with – really blessing EC and me on our crazy and busy day by just going with the flow, and knowing what to do. She even locked her keys in her car and kept right on going – not even blinking. We all laughed. She is creative and talented. Sherri – thank you for the wonderful memories of our big day. We thank you! If you need any family portraits made, baby photos, senior portraits, weddings, engagements, ANYTHING – contact her. I can’t recommend her more highly. These photos (on this blog) are taken by her).
The Bethesda Players did a fantastic bluegrass job at the reception. They were fun to have in the background. Everyone seemed to enjoy their music!
Kathleen Cox Weathers did my hair and made me look amazing that day and Kasey Ferrell did my makeup. I love having friends who are talented at what they do.
The flowers for EC and I were done by The English Garden
in Raleigh. Just what I wanted!
Thanks to all who made this day possible. More blogs coming!
