From We Tie The KnotsDavis and Callie tied the knot on December 29th 2012 in Highlands, NC and celebrated their marriage at The Farm at Old Edwards Inn with a magical winter wonderland reception…. A Rustic but elegant venue with a flare of glam! Callie is the founder of We Tie The Knots, a wedding planning company based in Atlanta, so it was a dream of hers to design everything from start to finish. The décor consisted of silver sequin linens, white faux snow around the centerpieces, mercury glass candle holders galore and much more. This winter wonderland wedding came to life as soon as the doors opened from the church after the ceremony, and the snow started falling! It was a cold one, but incredibly magical…every aspect of everything.

From The Bride…I am not that girl that had her wedding planned since a little girl, believe it or not! I think that’s the best way to go about it though because you don’t have your heart set on a specific month or season of the year, or a specific theme in mind. Between my wedding schedule and Davis’ schedule we were very limited to having the wedding in December. Most brides would say this is not the ideal month for their wedding, but in the end you have to remember you’re just finally getting to marry the man of your dreams!! So, December 29th it was… As soon as we picked the date, I immediately was thinking a dreamy “Winter Wonderland” wedding! Having worked at the majority of the wedding venues in Atlanta, I wanted to do something a little different, a destination wedding but not too far for everyone. That’s when I decided the Farm at Old Edwards Inn would be perfect. The glassed in Pavillion made for a beautiful outdoor view but still keeping everyone warm. This extraordinary venue is located in the beautiful mountains of Highlands, NC. which added to the theme that much more.

I must say the most enjoyable part of the entire planning process was designing the reception, but that’s my favorite part of helping every bride! The venue was rustic but very elegant and classy. With it being during the Holidays, I wanted to keep it a little more formal and romantic. One of my favorite aspects to the tablescapes would have to be the sequin table linens for our estate table… a huge thank you to La Tavola for helping make this dream come true! Another one of my favorite elements was adding snow around every centerpiece on each table, it just completed the theme so perfectly! Our florist, Boukates, went over and beyond everything I had ever dreamed of… she executed my ideas so perfectly and even added a few surprises. One of the most rewarding moments of this entire process was when my event coordinators brought myself, Davis and my sister into the reception before any of the guest came in. I literally just kept spinning circles, tearing up and looking at how perfectly everything came together. All of that hard work, phone calls with my sister and mom, inspiration, diagrams, directions, ideas and dreams all came to life immediately! I can literally say our entire wedding was a dream come true, all thanks to my incredible vendors that I put all of my trust into.

So with all of that said, the most magical day of my life happened on December 29th 2012, and I will never forget marrying the man of my dreams. This wasn’t all about the perfect décor and crazy weather… it was the fact Davis and I waited so patiently for four and a half years for this day. I hope every bride will keep this in the back of their mind, as the planning can get stressful at times. You only get to have one wedding day with this man, enjoy every moment of it and take it all in because it flies by way too fast. It was just a bonus how perfectly smooth my entire day went!

This day could not have been as perfect as it was without my amazing Matron of Honor (my sister/ wedding planner), parents and brother that immediately jumped in helping as soon as they all could. Not to mention I had 3 bridesmaids that are wedding planners, that helps a ton! A special thanks to our photographer, Mike Larson, for flying from California to share this special day with us and capture these incredible photos!

From No Regrets Events …Karrie and Chase live in Louisville, KY and met (for the third time!) in June of 2011 when Chase was our celebrating a birthday with one of his good friends. If you want to know about the first two times they met, you’ll have to ask Chase because Karrie didn’t find those two previous meetings quite as memorable…including living in the same dorms during their Freshman year while attending the University of Kentucky! But all joking aside, it must be true that third time is a charm because the third meeting made the two previous misses all worth the while.

The couple chose Highlands, NC for as their wedding destination because they fell I love with the area shortly after they started dating. Over a year in the making, their fall wedding weekend was just perfect! Every detail was thought of. The Apple Orchard at Old Edwards’ Farm as the perfect ceremony setting. Mother Nature took care of most of the decorations in the orchard and the talented designers at Oakleaf Floral added elegant touches. As you can see the weather was amazing! Crisp and cool just as you would expect a fall evening in the North Carolina mountains to be.

From Melissa of Melissa Schollaert PhotographyGeorgia and Scott were married at a quaint little church in the middle of Highlands, North Carolina. Their emotional ceremony was officiated by a friend close to the couple. The reception at The Farm at Old Edwards Inn followed the ceremony.  The bride, groom and wedding party were transported via an old trolley to the farm. They were photographed in an old orchard while the guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers in the garden. The reception began with the couple’s first dance, as well as dancing with each of their parents. A bountiful meal was prepared by the chef at Old Edwards while guests mingled with each other in the barn. The tables were topped with the bride’s grandmother’s and mother’s lace linens. Some had a mixture of white and cream flowers in small vases, while other tables were topped with tall arrangements. The lovely cake was placed below ribbons hanging from the barn ceiling. The couple displayed old photographs of their parents’ and grandparents’ weddings, as well as their engagement photos, in silver frames on the grand piano. In addition to a wonderful meal, the guests were provided with many treats, including an ice cream sundae bar and a milkshake bar with the couple’s favorite milkshakes and cookie favors, made by the bride and her mother. The milkshakes were a special surprise for the groom, who loves milkshakes. The bride’s grandfather also always made milkshakes for her when she was a child, so the couple created several milkshake flavors in honor of the groom, the bride’s grandfather and the couple. The evening continued with dancing and a grand exit of the bride and groom via a sparkler-lit path to an old, historic car to usher them away to their honeymoon.
