Blue and Orange Adventurous Nursery

My sister and I are deep in the throes of planning her baby nursery and we’ve settled upon the idea of adventure. A wondrous, adventurous nursery land and then I saw this. Bingo! It’s exactly as you would imagine a super chic, totally fun adventure nursery to be. Faux lions, teepees and a cute little Callahan too. Get lost in this magical spot captured by Allison Kuhn Photography.

Katrina of Come+Together Events in Charlotte, North Carolina was expecting her first baby, and got to work styling his nursery right away. As a wedding planner, she was familiar with the details and making sure this nursery would be unique. The nursery was furnished with mostly blue, gray and orange accents. Katrina and her husband have traveled the world, and in doing so, Katrina included objects from their travels into the nursery. Her son, Callahan will hopefully enjoy these accents for years to come.

From Gather Together… The Merrimon-Wynne House held its first Bridal Event on January 10, 2015. Jodi and Kaila wanted to host a fun and upbeat event that celebrated their current brides as well as all of the newly engaged couples who were interested in choosing The Merrimon-Wynne House to celebrate their big day! When Jodi and Kaila thought about who was going to participate, they decided that they didn’t want this event to feel like your typical bridal show where you meet multiple vendors in each vendor category. Instead, they decided that one vendor from each vendor category would be chosen to show off their best work. They chose vendors who they felt would best exemplify the feeling of a wedding day at The Merrimon-Wynne House from the minute that a bride walks through the doors in the morning with their bridesmaids to begin getting ready, to the moment that they are about to walk back out those same doors with their new husband at the end of the evening. Once the vision was set in stone, Merrimon-Wynne partnered with Gather Together Event Planning + Design to pull all the gorgeous, fun details together.

As recently engaged couples stepped into The Merrimon-Wynne House for the event, they were greeted with a glass of champagne served on a silver platter, and the smooth sounds of Robert Spaziano’s keyboard and saxophone. They were also offered the opportunity to register to win some amazing prizes offered by each vendor. Every half hour guests could gather at the base of the staircase for a tour of the venue with Kaila or Jodi as their guide.

Their first stop was to see Anna with Simply Elegant Floral Designs, who had set up a bouquet bar adorned with low to high-budget bridal bouquets, boutonnieres, and flower crowns. The future brides were able to hold her bouquets, try on her flower crowns, and see the versatility of what Simply Elegant Floral Designs can offer on their wedding day. The fabulous florals didn’t stop there. The entire event had touches of Simply Elegant Floral Designs’ work throughout. There were beautiful arrangements in every room, on the mantles, outside under the tent, and even atop all of the vendors’ heads – flower crowns for everyone!

As the future brides set down the bouquets, they moved into the next room where One & Only Custom Stationery had their hand-crafted invitation suites beautifully displayed alongside their calligraphy, and guests could help themselves to another drink. Walking past the champagne tower set under the center chandelier, visitors were lured into the next room by the delicious scent of a signature Donovan’s Dish Shrimp and Grits station.

Guests were then led up the staircase to the bridal suites where Alexia’s Bridal had some of their jaw-dropping gowns on display, and a live model glided through the event wearing one of their favorite designs. Parlor Blow Dry Bar was set up with a Braid or Up-Do Bar and a Lipstick Bar. While the girls were getting dolled up, the groom-to-be and mother of the bride were able to chat with Saks Fifth Avenue in the Groom’s Room about their amazing selection of suits and gowns for all occasions leading up to the big day! A “How to Tie a Tie” Bar could also be found in the Groom’s Room, giving the future grooms no excuses on their wedding day! After enjoying some primping, couples could sit down with Gather Together Events for “Why to Hire a Planner” consultations!

The Merrimon-Wynne House sits on an acre of land in the heart of downtown Raleigh, creating the perfect site for a ceremony, lawn games, and dinner underneath market lights. Party Reflections set the lawn up for a ceremony with a beautiful arbor covered in lush greenery by Simply Elegant Floral Designs. Market lights were strung over the lawn to create a romantic and intimate setting.

The event continued out into a Party Reflections tent where Bunn DJ Company was set up and entertaining guests with their dance floor-bouncing beats. There were 3 gorgeous table settings displayed to illustrate low to high-budget tablescapes, including florals on each by Simply Elegant Floral Designs. To complement each table, The Cupcake Shoppe created a unique and beautiful cake! There was also delicious mini cupcakes and cake pops for everyone to enjoy. Lounge areas were created with gorgeous pieces by Themeworks underneath their beautiful center chandelier.

Guests could mingle through the event while sipping on a cocktail, enjoying some fine fare, and getting to connect with some of the vendors that were a part of making The Merrimon-Wynne House’s first year of business such a success.

Organic + Elegant Wedding Inspiration

Around these parts, organic elegance is a style combo that never ceases to onset a swooning-fit. So when Almond Leaf Studios sent their version, including a $54,000 ring from Wick And Greene kept safe by The Mrs. Box, we couldn’t wait to add every beautiful bit to our galleries. Incredible shoes from Emmy London, whimsical invites from Bohemian Ink and blooms from Flora Events—it’s all sooo good.

Whimsical

From Almond Leaf StudiosWith exposed brick as the backdrop for this indoor shoot, we wanted an elegant, whimsical feel to balance out the strength and tones of the brick. Soft elements like the velvet ring box (the Mrs Box) and loose calligraphy over subtle watercolor helped to create this romantic setting while the architectural nature of olive branches formed the perfect wall installation.

The shoes, which were flown in from London (hello Emmy London shoes!) and the super rare pink diamond from Wick and Greene jewelers (valued at over $54,000) added the perfect amount of sparkle.

Inspiration comes in all sorts of ways, and we hope that you are as inspired as we were by collaborating with such talented vendors on this shoot!

Intimate Asheville Wedding with Southern Charm

For these two lovies, there was no place more fitting to share their vows than the North Carolina mountains they grew up in.

From Rebecca Rose EventsI’ve known and worked with Sara, and called her a friend for long enough to know that when she asked me to style and coordinate her wedding day, it would not only be an enormous honor, but a wonderfully fulfilling process for me as an artist as well. Each detail was purposefully chosen, created and/or styled to reflect their playful personalities and delight the senses. Justin and Sara’s only wish was that the day be full of joy and free of distraction from what mattered most – their love and commitment to each other. What’s not to love about that?!

From The Bride…Justin and I grew up in separate North Carolina towns not too far from the mountains. We knew when we got engaged that there was no other place we could promise ourselves to each other than the mountains we grew up in.

Our ceremony was small, family only, at the Old Sherrill’s Inn outside Asheville, a charming place that suited us perfectly and that Justin found through a Google search two months (to the day) before our wedding after our original venue fell through. It couldn’t have been more of a happy accident.

My favorite part of our wedding day wasn’t a moment, necessarily, though seeing all the haphazard design ideas my mom and I dreamed up come together through Becca’s hands was pretty magical. The best part was truly how present I felt all day long. I remember the vows I said, and the way husband looked at me. I spent quality time with my family and his, watching our two families become a family. I laughed, cried, and spent time with my husband. That was the best part of the day for me.

As a photographer, having amazing pictures of the two of us on our wedding day was really important to me. We were so lucky to spend almost an hour with Laura taking photos together after the ceremony. It was definitely something we had to make a priority when planning our day, but amidst the all toasting and well-wishing, it was wonderful to have some time just for us.
