Hey there party people! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve blogged, I know. My last blog was right before the ill-fated Superbowl when my beloved Panthers went down. Guess I needed a little bit of time to get over that heartbreaking loss. But really, I’ve just been buried in behind the scenes wedding prep for my upcoming busy wedding season. 2016 is bringing me 11 weddings (wow!) and they start at the end of this month. Then it is officially go-time! So my goal between now and then? To blog my last 2 weddings from the end of 2015. Better late than never right? Let’s get this started with Angela and Hunter’s big day back in November at the beautiful Van Landingham Estate.

Angela and Hunter are the sweetest couple and absolute dream clients. They were laid-back, fun and just plain easy to work with. And now we’re pals. I love collecting friends (aka wine night buddies) along the way in the this crazy business! With a great team of vendors by my side (including one heck of a band that kept the party going all night!) Angela and Hunter’s wedding was an absolute ball.
Angela and Hunter tied the knot at the adorable chapel at Christ Church. I’d never been to this church before and thought it was so beautiful, perfect for an intimate wedding!
You know what else was beautiful? Angela’s bridal gown from Lily Rose Bridal! I loved the detail and the low back.
And she was not messing around with her shoes which were, let me just say, fierce. #obsessed
After the church, Angela and her crew arrived at Van Landingham for photos. The lush grounds at the estate are perfect for wedding party pictures and bride/groom portraits.
The florals were probably my favorite part of the wedding design. Pink Petunia did an amazing job with Angela’s color palette of gray, purple and green. I loved the anenomes, succulents and bright purple colors.
The hedges at Van Landingham sure do get a lot of wedding action! They are perfect for framing happy couples in between them.
Angela even had a pretty succulent in her hair.
Back Porch Orchestra played tunes that had the crowd dancing all night long with their energetic, bluesy music. I have to admit I love a band with a female lead singer! She totally rocked it!
The delicious cake by Wow Factor Cakes was beautiful as usual! If you’re getting married in the fall and getting a Wow Factor Cake I highly recommend the pumpkin flavor!
Three Little Birds provided a custom invitation suite that dazzled in shimmery gray paper.
Custom koozies kept everyones drinks cold (and are always a good idea!)
Angela and Hunter danced the night away.
…And the guests enjoyed a smores bar for a final sweet treat!
