Magical Friendsgiving Dinner under the Stars

Whether it’s inspiration for the real Thanksgiving deal, a gathering of friends or a gorgeous dinner, this party will suffice. It covers all the basis of a magical shindig and then some with design and hostess extraordinaire Megan Martin at the helm, florals crafted by Shea Hopely  and all captured by Julie Cate Photography. Find inspiration for giving thanks, champagne and good cheer right here.

From Megan Martin… As a business owner, I have so much to be thankful for. And in the wedding industry, there are many people who I hope to express all year long how thankful I am for them. But for fun, I wanted to host a gathering for a group of creative vendors local to the Jacksonville area who have been an integral part of my journey and who inspire me with their beautiful work, so I decided to host a “Frindsgiving” for these sweet friends.

My goal for the party was for each guest to feel special and inspired to share gratitude beyond the evening. That goal shaped the design of the evening with luxe touches of farmhouse tables lined with gold chivaris and accented with tons of candlelight and soft full florals. One of my favorite details brought to life was framing the handmade wooden bar with birch branches adorned with a eucalyptus garland and long flowing ribbon tails. As wedding professionals, we often work so hard to set the stage for a night of love and intentional details for our clients, so I wanted each vendor to be able to come to the table and really enjoy a beautiful meal in their honor. And in hopes of spreading the gratitude forward, each place setting held an empty card for our guests to bring home with them and take a few precious moments to set aside the busy of life and write a handwritten note to someone else they are grateful for this season.

It was a magical night of friendship and fun under the twinkle lights that left me with a refreshed heart, because gratitude really does change everything.

From the beautiful Bride…We got engaged in December 13′, found out we were pregnant in Feb 14′ and got married on June 28th. We had been together for 3 years prior to all of this but the pregnancy threw us for a loop! Oh, did I mention we moved houses in the beginning of June as well. Needless to say 2014 has been a year to remember! Leading up to the day of the wedding was non stop, I had never been so busy in my life before but I knew I had to keep my stress down due to a little bundle of joy growing in side of me. All of my vendors were amazing to work with and made the process very seamless. I think this day was particularly special because my husband, Chas, and I were not just making a commitment to each other that day but also to our baby. I think it really had hit me that we were getting married when Chas send me 2 dozen roses the morning of to my room saying he loved me and he couldn’t wait to be my husband. It was a day I will never forget.

From Amalie Orrange PhotographyCourtney and Noah had such an amazing, emotional and drop dead gorgeous wedding at the beautiful Alfond Inn in Winter Park. 120 of their closest friends and family gathered together to celebrate their big day, and it turned out to be such a great sunny day despite the 80% chance of rain that was anticipated. Not a drop fell, it was clear, perfect and there was much love was all around. Courtney and Noah included there dogs in the wedding and I must stay I had a little doggie crush on Lola, hence all the pictures:) Courtney wore a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown and the cutest Kate Spade shoes! Courtney also made, that super cute LOVE sign you will see at the reception, yep she’s crafty and gorgeous. All and all it was one word STUNNING!

From The Bride…Noah and I met when we were neighbors in the same apartment complex. We lived two doors down from each other! Kismet I must say. Noah proposed on a random week night he told me that he had to run an errand for work. He talked me into riding along with him. This errand happened to be on Park Ave in Winter Park and as we were walking he stopped in the rose garden in the park and got down on one knee. The errand was all a lie that he used to get me to the park. I was so surprised!

Noah was funny, laid back and handsome. Noah said that Courtney was loving and was there when you needed her the most. She also amazes him and will get a laugh out of him for the most random of things!

From Lisa with E EventsWhat I particularly loved about working with Courtney is that she trusted my suggestions with the use of mixed metals, {we used silver and gold} and different textures and coordinating colors with the linen , rather than just one linen and napkin color. Also, if you can, drape or conceal service entrance walls! I think you can see how it can make all the difference! The layout on the lawn made for an intimate ceremony, and “layering” the table with sweet details is always key for me. {Linen, table runner, charger plate, napkin fold, menu card, bow accent, etc.}
