Joel and Celeste were married on a beautiful October day at Whispering Oaks in Julian, NC. Despite hurricane issues (cough cough, no power to the venue without a generator) and a late season for growing pumpkins, their day could not have been more perfect! Their barn had lots of industrial accents and with the flames of the floating candles dancing in the dark and the unique blue pumpkins to match the steel blue of the bridesmaids dresses, it was magic.
We met Ashlee and Joe at a bridal show in Greensboro and originally took them on as coordination clients. A few months later we decided to up that to planning as well since Ashlee had some really beautiful ideas but wasn’t sure how to bring them to life for her big day. This couple was so incredibly sweet to work with. They knew the kind of wedding they wanted, one centered on family and love, and didn’t feel pressured to chase after every typical wedding idea (WHICH WE LOVED).
Ashlee imagined a garden wedding in fall and wanted to pull from colors of the season. Their venue was a gorgeous estate Bed and Breakfast in downtown Greensboro that boasted a simple and luscious back area which we transformed for the wedding! With so many amazing details such as their water fountain, green pergola, gorgeous inside and outside stair cases, we had our work cut out for us. We took a trip to the Hauser Rental showroom and selected the wine red and gold colors that would pair perfectly with the lush green of the space for the sophisticated pallet they envisioned.
We met Torey at one of our first bridal shows and when she said she was planning her classic wedding near Charlotte we were in! We love the bright colors she used and the gorgeous floral centerpieces. Though a rain storm threatened her ceremony, it passed by right on time and the rest of the day was absolutely beautiful. This couple celebrated their specific interests as the groom chose to walk down the aisle to the Star Wars trooper song (which was AWESOME). Enjoy the photos from their big day!
We had the pleasure of knowing Keagan and Tyler since college and when they contacted us early on to help plan and coordinate their wedding we couldn’t have been more excited! This wedding was set in a gorgeous family garden which overlooked a lake and despite a brief rain shower, it was perfect. Surrounded by their family and friends these two people said “I Do” and then PARTIED! Enjoy these fun photos! We can’t wait to see what Keagan and Tyler do with the rest of their wonderful life together.
Ashley and Tim reached out to us a couple months before their wedding and we were so excited to work with such a sweet couple on their fall wedding! Her colors were some of our absolute favorites and worked so well with the warm brick of The Stockroom. They went with a heavy grazing dinner catered by Cafe Luna and it was beyond delicious and more than enough food for their guests (we might be converts to this idea now). The speeches were heartfelt and their dance floor was full ALL NIGHT! We hope you enjoy the gorgeous photos as much as we did!!
This summer, vendors across Raleigh NC teamed up to put on a host of inclusive styled shoots initiated and organized by Kevin Holland. This was such an amazing chance to team up with some of my favorite vendors and stretch our creativity. I got to make the loom in our shoot by hand through our second company, Pop The Champagne, and it was such fun! Months of figuring out how to bring our vision to life came together in the most perfect way with the most supportive group ever. See the beautiful shoot below!
Trilby and her mother came to us just 45 days before their wedding to help finalize last minute details and help with the big day and we are so happy they did! Trilby, Grant, and their families have such big hearts and included as many of their friends and family as possible in their big day. They started the morning with a big church wedding where they were able to share their ceremony and cake cutting with as many people as they wanted. After celebrating there they left for their reception which was set on their picturesque family property. The reception was the perfect mix of intimate family and laid back friends that embodied the kind of relationship dynamics that were so clear in the couples devotion to each other. Between tearful toasts from the father of the bride, and fun dances on a packed dance floor, the evening was perfect and we hope you enjoy the sweet photos as much as we did!
Helping Melissa and Josh and Josh with their Outer Banks wedding was one of our favorite spring moments! The Outer Banks will always hold a place in our heart and we knew from the first moment that these two were special. Melissa and Josh were so sweet the entire time and really put their guest and creating a memorable time for everyone first. With her Kate Spade style and bubbly personality Melissa was radiant on the big day and Josh looked like the happiest man on earth. We wish these two all the happiness in the world for their marriage and hope you enjoy the photos of their beautiful day as much as we did!
This past May we were so excited to work with our first Bat Mitzvah family as both planners and decorators! Planning Hayden’s special day was so much fun as we sought to fill the evening with as much love, pride, and individuality as possible. This was a big step for Hayden towards becoming an adult which she took with a grace far beyond her years. It was so touching to see all of the family and friends that came to support her in this transition and the way in which each were recognized and honored for their part in her journey to where she is now. We hope you enjoy the photos below as much as we did and look forward to many more of these kinds of events to come!
This past January we had the good fortune to put together an amazing styled shoot with some of our very favorite vendors at a new wedding venue in Chapel Hill. Old Lystra Inn made the perfect backdrop for our luxury themed shoot and the owners are some of the kindest people I’ve ever met. Check out these amazing photos and video below! Here’s to all the talented vendors who help put it all together! See if you can tell that it was 14 Degrees 🙂 Continue reading
