Pictures above are from when we were setting up. The Ballantyne Hotel’s event staff was impeccable!

Below are a couple pictures right before the ceremony and one during the ceremony which was held on the grounds.

Hilary and Doug’s wedding was such a lovely combination of southern and rustic – there was so much thought put into every detail. Snipes Farm in Chapel Hill, NC was the perfect venue for their vision.

Jordan & Ben Clawson 5.5.12 May 20, 2012

Jordan and Ben’s wedding was so detailed and perfect – I always drive by the exit for Yadkinville but have never actually been there – beautiful area of our beloved North Carolina. Wineries sprinkled every few miles – rolling hills – nice breeze – perfect wedding location. Jordan’s tribute to North Carolina with one of her themed food tables was such a lovely touch! A few of my “non-professional” pictures are below :) Will share more of Indigo Photography later!

Unique Charleston Wedding February 28, 2012

I had the pleasure of coordinating Ashley & Jon Wakeland’s wedding this past Saturday in downtown Charleston, SC. Their reception was held at The American Theater (http://www.pphgcharleston.com/venues/view/american_theater) – this venue is incredibly unique as it once was an operating theater with all of typical acoustics and amazing decor. They decided to utilize the old popcorn machine which went perfectly with their theme and the guests loved it! I took a couple of snap shots but will wait to reveal the amazing pictures once their photographer sends them over :)

Raleigh Venue: NCSU Arboretum February 3, 2012

The JC Raulston Arboretum at North Carolina State University is a nationally acclaimed garden that is primarily a working research and teaching garden but is an AMAZING and affordable wedding ceremony venue! There are 8 different locations at the Arboretum to choose from – each accommodating a certain amount of guests. Most of the locations are $500 for 4 hours! I have provided some pictures below but check out the website for more information and pictures :)

Charlotte Rehearsal Dinner: The Liberty January 14, 2012

A couple girls mentioned this restaurant and I was very intrigued by this unique venue for a rehearsal dinner! The Liberty is a great restaurant located on South Boulevard and they offer a phenomenal private dining room for special events. The room can hold up to 65 for a seated dinner, has it’s own bar, separate bathrooms from the restaurant, and even it’s own private entrance.

Attention March Brides! January 2, 2012

Getting married in March? To-do list piling up with the last few details? You have between 60-80 days to get everything done probably while working a full-time job – a bit overwhelming huh? There are a lot of Brides out there who are excited about planning their weddings and just know they do not need a wedding planner’s help – I know because I was one of them! However, a wedding “coordinator” can help you tie up all of those loose ends and help you be a very RELAXED Bride :) Check out my Services tab – maybe one of the packages doesn’t work for you but a few a la carte services just may!

HAPPY PLANNING!!

 

Mr. & Mrs. Kitzel – December 27, 2011 December 30, 2011

Breathtaking. One simple word to describe the wedding of Karen and Brad. The Biltmore’s Champagne Cellar was a unique and lovely setting for their intimate and romantic wedding. The ceremony began at 5:00pm lit by candle light and decorated with the most amazing flowers. After the ceremony, the Bride, Groom, and guests were given a private tour of the winery and private tasting. When they returned to the Champagne Cellar, they were welcomed by friendly staff and an amazing feasting table! It was such a wonderful evening and I feel honored that I was able to be a part of it. I wish you a lifetime of happiness Karen and Brad!

I am not a professional, but did snap a few photos :)

Winter Wedding Color Palettes October 17, 2011

Winter is so close which is a little shocking! I feel like it was just Spring :) I have been researching Winter wedding colors and have narrowed it down to 2 favorites – they are VERY different but I couldn’t choose! I am already thinking snow….
