It’s Monday and let’s be real… none of us feel like doing a whole lot right about now. We’re still setting into the day, drinking that (3rd) cup of coffee. And take your time, there’s no rush. Because we got a gem of a wedding video for you to help further procrastinate with. Thanks to Light Cannon Films, let’s transport ourselves to the beautiful North Carolina coast and fall in love with these cuties. Monday just got much better, didn’t it?
From Light Cannon Films… Thank goodness for sunny Novembers here on the North Carolina coast! Thomas and Chelsea’s wedding was so warm that the fuzzy blankets they had bought for their guests in anticipation of wintry weather ended up just being sweet favors for everyone to bring home for colder days.
From the start of the day, getting ready at a picturesque Figure 8 Island beach house, to their vows under a breathtaking sunset on the Intracoastal Waterway, there wasn’t a second of the Jones’ big day that wasn’t perfect… but their adorable personalities and quirky moments were what really made the day. Thomas missed his “I do” (by just a hair), and they might have slightly lost their balance while enraptured in their first kiss – those things are technically things gone wrong, but they make the whole picture oh, so much more right!

Wilmington is made for marrying, there’s no doubt about that. So when a group of seriously fabulous, hand-picked creatives team up for a walking tour meets mock wedding extravaganza known as Courtyards & Cobblestones, it’s what we call a can’t-miss event. Think a beyond brilliant evening of yummy food, drinks and never-ending inspiration. This is going to be sooo much fun, my friends.
Taking a beautiful stroll through downtown Wilmington is always amazing, but add in the most innovative wedding professionals that Southeastern North Carolina has to offer and it’s an entirely new level of awesome. I’m talking SEVEN fully styled venues from a team of industry geniuses that know everything there is to know about throwing a fabulous wedding. It’s an experience like none other, complete with live music, table settings, florals, lighting, cake tastings (yum), cuisine samplings, beverages, photo booths AND fabulous giveaways. That’s a lot of awesome for one event.
Whether you describe yourself as engaged or simply soon-to-be, grab your nearest and dearest and make plans NOW to attend Courtyards & Cobblestones, A Walk Through Wedding Row on January 16th AND the Mix & Mingle Brunch on January 17th! Tickets are available here. Happy planning, lovelies!

You know what we all need on a weekly basis? A classic Southern wedding, full of sweet kisses,
adorable charm and good old-fashioned fun, and Light Cannon Films so described this Wilmington wedding as just that. They captured it all, as these cuties said “I do” in a gorgeous basilica and danced the night away at 128 South. So here’s your dose of Southern love for the week and I promise it’s a good one!
From Light Cannon Films… The wedding day started out in a cottage on a quiet cobblestone street, where the only sounds that could be heard were the laughter of the bridesmaids and the clinking of their tea cups. In a whirlwind, a classic white limo whisked everyone away to a majestic basilica, where the high ceilings echoed Olivia and Henry’s emotional vows. And in Act III, we found ourselves on a lively trolley, exploring the town with the wedding party and dancing the hot August night away.
Everything about this wedding epitomized Southern tradition: historic charm, breathtaking grandeur, and good, old-fashioned fun.
Watching this film will make you wish for summertime and long days, and it will make you fall in love with the Johnsons, the classiest couple you could dream up. Their genuine kindness, intellect, and timeless looks will take them to the top. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.
