McGill Rose Garden

This styled wedding shoot was a dreamy shoot to be a part of!

Jessica with Lallier Event Design dreamed this gorgeousness up and allowed me to have freedom with the stationery (YAY!!).  The shoot took place at McGill Rose Garden and the garden itself was the main inspiration from where the whole Stationery look came from.  Jessica had a great vision as to what elements she wanted to incorporate and from there, this is what was dreamed up!

styled shoot at camp canaan

I think I love absolutely EVERYTHING about this styled shoot.  The serene setting, the moss, the deep colors in the florals, the wood details, antlers …. seriously, I don’t think I can pick ONE favorite thing about this fall inspired shoot!

I am going to keep this blog post SUPER short and let the photos speak for themselves.  Yah Photography captured the style and colors perfectly!

the wedding planner!

FOUR brides were surveyed …. FOUR brides that hired planners.  See why these ladies were SO extremely happy with their decision and investment in a wedding planner.  In my years in the Event Industry in Charlotte, I’ve seen lots of brides spend lots of money on their wedding day, but the single best thing you can do is HIRE a professional wedding planner.  These are just a sampling of the amazing wedding planners I’ve worked with over the years, and they are all experts in their field.  Take a moment to see why!

WEDDING PLANNER: JOHN GANDY EVENTS, TALAHASSEE, FLORIDA

 1. Why did you initially feel like it was important to hire a wedding planner?  You suggested it! But no really…we wanted a professional’s help so that our day could be as stress-free and as gorgeous as possible.

2. When you were at your wedding ceremony / reception, what was the number one reason you were happy to have that wedding planner by your side?  We did not have to worry about a single thing…they made sure everything happened exactly how it should! We just had the time of our lives!!

3. If you had it to do all over again, would you still hire that planner?  Absolutely!!!

 

MEGAN H.

WEDDING PLANNER: DBB EVENTS, CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA

1. Why did you initially feel like it was important to hire a wedding planner? My main concern with my wedding day was that I wanted my fiancé, the wedding party, my family and myself relaxed and calm. I knew that this would not be possible without hiring someone to handle all the madness and chaos that is inevitable on a wedding day. Hands down best decision I ever made.

2. When you were at your wedding ceremony / reception, what was the number one reason you were happy to have that wedding planner by your side?  The number one reason I was thankful to have a wedding planner were the smiles on everyone’s faces. Everyone was blown away with the details, decor, party and food- all of which would have not been curated beautifully without a planner by my side.

3. If you had it to do all over again, would you still hire that planner?  A million times over!!!! YES!!!!

 

JENN K.

WEDDING PLANNER: CAROLINA EVENT DESIGN, CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA

1. Why did you initially feel like it was important to hire a wedding planner?  With my fiancé and my mom living in different states at the time, it was important to have a strong support system by my side in planning my wedding. Our wedding planning got started at a time in the year when a lot of venues and vendors get booked, so it was important to have someone who knew a strong network of vendors that she had previous connections with and excellent recommendations for.

2. When you were at your wedding ceremony / reception, what was the number one reason you were happy to have that wedding planner by your side?  My planner, Heather, brought my vision to life in a way I could have never dreamt up of myself. She kept me at ease throughout the day and created beautiful moments and memories that everyone present will cherish.

3. If you had it to do all over again, would you still hire that planner?  AB-SO-LUTELY!

 

RACHEL S.

WEDDING PLANNER: COME + TOGETHER EVENTS, CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA

1. Why did you initially feel like it was important to hire a wedding planner?  I am a young professional trying to start my career, so there was no time for me to do any groundwork.  Plus, I wanted an element of design that I am not creative enough to do myself.

2. When you were at your wedding ceremony / reception, what was the number one reason you were happy to have that wedding planner by your side?  I literally just showed up to my wedding, no stressors, no decisions to make, nothing to do but get hitched and dance the night away.  The last thing I wanted to do was to coordinate vendors going in different directions.  I spend my life making decisions at the office.  This day required me to just say YES to the groom.

3. If you had it to do all over again, would you still hire that planner?  ABSOLUTELY.  Katrina is PERFECTION.
