Sedgefield Country Club Wedding {Noel + Tom} | High Point NC Wedding Planner

Noel and Tom were married earlier this year in Greensboro, NC at Sedgefield Country Club on a picture perfect day! This wedding is truly out of a scene from an enchanted garden. In fact, Noel and I were actually inspired by a famous Monet garden painting that drove a lot of our design and tied in perfectly with our color palette of navy, hydrangea, cream, blush, and peony.

Noel kept her bridal party small – just her number one gal and daughter, Madison. They each had coordinating bouquets of garden roses, peonies, ranunculus, and jasmine vine.

One of the things that sets Sedgefield Country Club apart is the stunning lawn in front of the club. It’s the first thing you see when you drive up and is the go to spot for ceremonies. We added a clear top tent with antique white chandeliers and soft draping to create an intimate feel while also keeping the beautiful view. Our focal point and WOW factor of the whole ceremony was the unbelievable floral archway created by Just Priceless. We added a few small personalized touches like an Arnold Palmer station (to keep guests cool and as a nod to Tom’s love of golf) and custom aisle markers with a favorite scripture.

Live music greeted guests as they entered the ceremony tent featuring a mix of classic and modern music. Tom is an avid golfer and has a great sense of humor so before the ceremony started, a family friend had a “call to tee” to kick of the processional.  sedgefield country club wedding by leigh pearce events greensboro north carolina wedding planner and wedding designer sedgefield country club wedding by leigh pearce events greensboro north carolina wedding planner and wedding designer

Noel and Madison were escorted to the ceremony site in a vintage 1965 Rolls Royce. Our something blue!

What a heartfelt ceremony! A family friend officiated on behalf of Noel and Tom before they each read their own vows. It was very important to both Noel and Tom that Madison was included in the ceremony. A sand ceremony was the perfect fit for them!

After the ceremony, guests entered the club for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Servers tray passed asiago stuffed potatoes, bacon wrapped shrimp with clover honey, miniature crab cakes with remoulade sauce, and caprese skewers.  My favorite cocktail hour detail were these custom napkins. Tom is a HUGE Bruce Springsteen fan so we *had* to find a way to include The Boss in the wedding.

Jamie Lynn Photography did a beautiful job with Noel and Tom’s portraits. It was HOT y’all and you’d never know looking at these.

The paper for this wedding is easily one of my favorites of all time. Amanda Day Rose created a delicate floral pattern inspired by our design that we incorporated throughout. It was very important to Noel to include scripture in the tablescape in some way. I worked with Amanda to create 5×7 menu cards that listed the menu on the front with a beautiful scripture print on the back. Guests took them home as a favor! Speaking of the menu, guests enjoyed a plated dinner starting with a fresh Summer berry salad of baby spinach, candied pecans, fresh strawberries and blueberries, and local goat cheese drizzled with a champagne vinaigrette. For dinner, guests were treated to a choice of French chicken breast with a butter caper white wine sauce served with risotto and Parmesan asparagus; a New York strip with a port wine reduction served with Yukon gold mashed potatoes and Parmesan asparagus; or asparagus, rainbow chard, baby carrots, cauliflower, and haricot verts over quinoa with lemon compound butter.

Our reception design was feminine, slightly vintage, and elegant with vibrant flowers and mixed metals. I love how all the elements came together from our mercury glass table numbers to the luxurious linens.

If you haven’t noticed yet, the florals for this wedding were the centerpiece of the design. I worked closely with Maxie B’s to translate that into a delicate sugar flower design combined with a rosette design that Noel loves. It tasted even better than it looked! The layers were a mix of lemon almond buttercream and devil’s food cake.

Noel wanted to include some golf touches for Tom and one day I had a light bulb moment. There is a patio outside of the ballroom that we didn’t quite have a plan for. Knowing that this was a family friendly reception with lots of children, I proposed to Noel that we have putt putt on the patio! She loved it and it tied in perfectly with our customized golf ball favors. It was a HUGE hit!

Spring Salisbury Train Depot Wedding {Sara + Alex} | Charlotte NC Wedding Planner

Sara and Alex are one of those couples that you just can’t help but have fun when you are around them. I know Anna Paschal Photography and I agree — they are easily one of our all time favorite couples (and weddings!). They are both easy going, but know what they like which made wedding planning a breeze. I have been itching to share their beautiful day for several months — but how do you narrow down the images when every.single.one. is amazing? I just can’t hold this beauty of a day to myself anymore … I am so excited to share Sara and Alex’s classic and colorful Salisbury wedding with you!

kate spade garden wedding in salisbury by greensboro wedding planner leigh pearce events salisbury-nc-wedding-planner-1 charlotte-nc-wedding-planner-4

Sara and Alex tied the knot on the most perfect, sunny May afternoon surrounded by family and friends in the church that Sara’s great grandfather helped build. We kept the design at the church clean and classic with fun preppy touches to tie into our overall look. Green Bee Floral Designs created the most beautiful mixed green garlands to adorn the church!

charlotte-nc-wedding-planner-2 charlotte-nc-wedding-planner-3

I simply adore the color palette we created for Sara and Alex. We gave the typical blush and bashful inspiration a punch of personality and ended up with a palette of peony, blush, peach, and metallic gold with black and white stripes for a Kate Spade touch.

charlotte-nc-wedding-planner-5

Such a great way to bring a pop of personality to a classic tuxedo — colorful socks!

salisbury-nc-wedding-planner-3 charlotte-nc-wedding-planner-6

There are two sanctuaries at Sara’s home church — a modern one that can accommodate the large attendance of today’s congregation as well as the original that Sara’s great-grandfather helped build. When she showed me both spaces, I just *knew* this was the spot for their nuptials.

charlotte-nc-wedding-planner-7

My favorite portrait of the day! Sara, Alex, and their wedding party took the Salisbury Trolley from the ceremony to the reception. It was a great time in the day to enjoy their friends before getting swept up in the reception.

salisbury-nc-wedding-planner-7

The Salisbury Train Depot was a new venue for the LPE team to work in. The verdict? We LOVED it!! It is such a unique space in that it is still an actual working train depot. While a train doesn’t stop during the event, one or two are likely to pass by while guests mingle outside for cocktail hour. To keep guests cool while they socialized, Buttercup Cafe + Catering served up libations as well as refreshing cucumber mint infused water. Hors d’oeuvres of watermelon and feta skewers, fried green tomato crostini, and buttermilk biscuits with Virginia ham and apricot chutney where tray passed. With a pretty blank slate for the cocktail hour space, we wanted to bring in some personality and I think these fun striped linens did the trick!

Jen Brannon of Green Bee Floral Designs is my hero. I wanted a living wall-inspired piece for the seating chart and boy, did she deliver! It was hands down my favorite element from my design.

greensboro-nc-wedding-planner-9 greensboro-nc-wedding-planner-11

These colorful tablescapes were so fun to design! We started with an overall classic look, added some pops of color inspired by our color palette, and lastly some touches of personality like the striped ribbon napkin ties and the gold striped votives.

charlotte-nc-wedding-planner-11 charlotte-nc-wedding-planner-10 charlotte-nc-wedding-planner-14

Can we all just take a moment to ooohhh and ahhhhh over Sara’s wedding gown? It has easily become one of my all time favorites.

greensboro-nc-wedding-planner-1 greensboro-nc-wedding-planner-3 greensboro-nc-wedding-planner-2

Sara and Alex kicked off the reception with a sweet first dance to “Take The World” by Johnnyswim. It was the perfect song for them!  After dinner, DJ Joe Bunn kept the dance floor rockin’ with a mix of the couple’s favorite tunes. Speaking of dinner, guests enjoyed shrimp and grits, arugala and baby spinanch salad with sugared pecans, strawberries, and mandarin oranges, apricot dijon grilled chicken, and herb roasted beef tenderloin with rosemary au jus.. just to name a few!

Maxie B’s always exceeds my expectations .. but this cake .. oh my word! It was absolutely beautiful. They took my rough sketch along with the duogram from Sara and Alex’s wedding invitations and created this masterpiece. And of course, it was delicious too! The layers were pink lemonade, raspberry lady (one of my favs!), and devil’s food cake.

Highland Presbyterian Church + Forsyth Country Club Wedding | Winston-Salem NC Wedding Planner

This wedding has everything that makes my wedding planner heart go pitter patter: a wonderful and fun couple, blush and bashful details as far as the eye can see, and fantastic vendor team. It was one of those weddings and planning experiences that I wish I could relive over and over again — and I actually get to! This time with Lauren’s sister, Taylor; and so far, it is shaping up to be just as amazing!

Thinking back to earlier this year on the most perfect May day, Lauren and Thomas tied the knot with 200 of their closest family and friends at Lauren’s home church. Later they danced the night away at the Forsyth Country Club and it was one rockin’ party. I am so excited to finally share this beautiful day and some of my favorite details thanks to Samantha Laffoon’s talent. Enjoy!

These Badgley Mischka’s are the perfect bridal shoe — not too white, a touch of texture, a bit of bling, and jussstttt the right height.

Hands down, these bouquets are my all time favorite! I even included some of these photos on my own wedding inspiration board. Jen of Green Bee Floral Design is brillant and added just the right amount of pink to the bridesmaid bouquets while only giving Lauren her requested “whisper of pink.”

Highland Presbyterian never disappoints! Just look at all that architectual detail.

After the ceremony, guests moseyed over to the reception for hors d’ouerves and cocktails on the terrace of Forsyth Country Club. We tented this area in case of inclement weather (which we had during the ceremony!) as well as the bright May sunshine.

Charlie Band kicked off the reception with some favorite oldies tunes and the party officially started. From there, guests dined and danced all evening! The food station menu offered a variety of selections from a vegetarian display of balsamic grilled vegetables and hummus to primavera pasta and shrimp and grits to crab cake and pulled pork sliders with shoe string french fries. The showstopper of the menu was definitely the beautiful four tier wedding cake from Delicious Bakery.

Featured on Carats & Cake | Virginia Wedding Planner

Rankin and Brent’s wedding was one for the record books.

Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church + Revolution Mill Studios Wedding | Greensboro NC Wedding Planner

I absolutely loved planning with Chelsey and Bill for their July 2016 wedding for so many reasons. From their mustard yellow and grey color palette to their trusting in my vision and recommendations, it was an effortless process and resulted in the party of a lifetime. This group knew how to par-tayyy and I think the snaps from my friend, Vesic Photography, attest to that!

greensboro north carolina wedding planner at revolution mill studios wedding

The ladies started the day downtown at their hotel getting dolled up with Carla White + team before heading to the church for a traditional 2 PM Catholic ceremony at Our Lady of Grace. One of my favorite churches in Greensboro, hands down!

cobb-326 cobb-364

Chelsey and Bill decided to do a first look prior to their ceremony and read letters from one another. So sweet!

cobb-114 cobb-135

Our Lady of Grace is stunning on it’s own so we went minimal with decor in the church. We brought a pop of personality with the ceremony programs, tying them back to the design of the invites from Smitten On Paper.

cobb-145 cobb-232

Because the ceremony was a tad earlier in the day, we planned for a break between the wedding and the reception. Guests were invited to our favorite local spot, 1618 Midtown (formerly known as 1618 Wine Lounge) for drinks and a reprieve from the heat. After the ceremony, the bridal party hopped on a party bus and headed to Fisher Park for some photos before heading to the reception.

cobb-359 cobb-325 cobb-360

When I think of a hot summer day, I think about Chelsey and Bill’s wedding day. It was bordering on 100 degrees with sweltering humidity. You know, just your typical North Carolina July day! To keep guests comfortable, we created lots of shade for cocktail hour, installed multiple high powered fans, and kept ice cold drinks flowing. Of course, anyone that was uncomfortable was welcome to come on inside but most guests were enjoying the NC sunshine and fun! For their guest book, Bill built a custom Jenga set. Guests were able to sign the pieces and it provided some extra fun for cocktail hour.

cobb-399 cobb-417 cobb-406 cobb-409

Designing with this color palette was so refreshing! I partnered with Just Priceless to create a natural look that Chelsey loved for florals with our more modern color palette. April from Tender Love and Cakes created the most beautiful cake with a cascade of custom sugar flowers. It was even more lovely in person!

cobb-387 cobb-396 cobb-388

I am always trying to mix up floor plans for venues we work at frequently. No one wants the same ol’ same ol’ and I’ve been dying to do another dance floor down below at Rev Mill. Most weddings put their cake in this area, which isn’t my favorite use of the space. I had this vision of Hooman shooting through the lights and Chelsey and Bill looking up at their guests during their first dance .. and as you can see, I totally delivered on that vision!

cobb-485 cobb-556

Side note: if your photographer asks to steal you away during the reception, say yes!

cobb-713 cobb-745

Chelsey came to me during planning and said she had this idea for hula hoops during dancing. There is a funny story behind them between her, Bill, and some of their friends .. one of those “one time at the bar” stories that always lead to some laughs. The hoops were the perfect touch for dancing photos that Hooman always captures so well!

cobb-797

Hello, gorgeous! Talk about a snazzy get away car.

cobb-925 cobb-957

Congrats, Chelsey and Bill!! You two are the life of the party and I absolutely adore you both!

I Like Bigs Tents and I Cannot Lie | North Carolina Wedding Planner

It’s true. Tents are my jam. As we approach 2017 and wedding planning for next year is abuzz, here is some inspiration for your tented wedding. Pinterest away!!

north carolina wedding planner private property outdoor tented wedding tips

If you are planning to have your ceremony outdoors and don’t have a viable indoor back up plan, reserve a tent in advance in case of inclement weather. Also, it comes in handy to make sure all your design details will work well inside or out of a tent. I love this grand entrance we gave to Katherine and Nathan’s wedding tent – we created an outdoor church.

Hello gorgeous! Nothing will make your guests’ jaws drop like a beautiful Sperry pole tent. The signature high peaks and flags on these ionic sail cloth tents are my absolute favorite.

If you decide to go for a more traditional frame or structure tent, draping and chandeliers are the perfect accent to create a custom look.

You may be thinking that you just need a tent in case of rain, but I recommend them rain or shine especially in the summer. They give your guests a reprieve from the sun and heat. You can install fans to help create a breeze or even side walls and an air conditioning unit. Your guests will thank you!

Think about your floor plan. Plan out your focal points and high traffic areas like stage, dance floor, food stations, bars, and the like to ensure proper flow. Don’t forget to think about your entry and exit points and making them well defined.

One of my favorite ways to customize a tent design is to lay down flooring. The options are endless (hardwood, carpeting, patterns, oh my!) and your female guests will appreciate their heels not getting stuck in the grass.

If your venue comes with a tent, make sure to get a complete list of all the amenities and rentals that are included or available for upgrade. Think fans, lighting, dance floors, side walls, tables, chairs, and the list goes on. Knowing what items the venue can provide to you vs. what you will need to secure on your own will save you time and money down the road .

Nothing transforms a tent more than fabulous lighting. Chandeliers, twinkle lights, cafe lights, lanterns.. your options are endless. For this wedding, my wonderful bride, Katherine, wanted to dance under the stars but because of her large guest list and the unpredictable weather, that wasn’t feasible. Instead, I proposed a clear top tent with twinkle lights to create a starry effect. It was absolutely stunning and even more impactful in person.

If your wedding is completely off the grid (no main buildings around to support your needs), don’t forget about additional tents you may need. This could be everything from ceremony to cocktail hour to dinner to dancing to kitchen to restrooms to storage to marquees.

Sunflower Inspired Summerfield Farm Wedding {Rachel + Justin} | Greensboro NC Event Planner

When I sat down with Rachel and Justin to chat about inspiration possibilities, Rachel mentioned how much she loved sunflowers and I am pretty sure I stood up (in the middle of a bustling Maxie B’s) and did a jig. Sunflowers with the beautiful backdrop of Summerfield Farms in the summertime? Wedding perfection. More so, it was important to Rachel and Justin that their wedding be intimate, full of dancing, fun games, good food, and, of course, great memories. I’d say we knocked it out of the park! I hope you enjoy these beautiful images from Alexa’s Photography and make sure to check out this wedding feature on Every Last Detail here. Happy Monday!

We were in sunflower heaven thanks to Amy Lynne Originals.

Rachel and Justin opted to do what we call a “first touch.” They didn’t want to physically see each other before the ceremony so a quick hello, back to back, to calm the nerves was the perfect solution for them.

larson_206

When your ceremony spot is this picturesque, less is definitely more.

larson_233 larson_227 larson_236

I’m not going to lie, chuppahs are one of my favorite wedding elements. Not only do they leave room for SO many design possibilities but the symbolism and traditions behind them are, to me, what weddings are all about. Justin’s mother did an amazing job hand making their cheerful chuppah.

larson_306

After the ceremony, guests took a quick hayride to the barn for hors d’oeurves and drinks. FLG served delicious tray pased caprese salad bites and their famous deviled eggs as well as a food station of slow roasted pulled pork sliders with all the fixin’s.

larson_433 larson_238

Insert all the heart eyes for these two!

larson_476 larson_483

After cocktail hour, guests moved into an adjacent tent for a formal plated dinner. For the table designs, R+J gravitated towards simple yet colorful designs so we started with a clean palette of crisp white linens and mahogany chairs. ALO’s bright floral designs paired with our adorable menus and place cards were the perfect accent and really let the menu and conversation shine.

For dinner, guests first enjoyed a summer salad of mixed greens, fresh strawberries, candied pecans, mandarin oranges, fresh local chevre, and a champagne vinagrette.  Next, for the main course, guests were offered a menu choice of Kentucky bourbon chicken, marinated flank steak with a red wine reduction, salmon with a lemon butter caper sauce, or zucchini cakes with a lemon spinach cream sauce. The Southern sides paired with each entree were a mix of smoked gouda mac and cheese, mashed sweet potatoes, grilled garlic green beans, and corn bread.

larson_438

Hello gorgeous. When we started talking about sunflower designs, the first thing that came to my mind was a field full of sunflowers. I expressed my idea to Amy in the way of a escort wall turned selfie station and she created this masterpiece. It was one of my favorite design elements EVER and the guests had a blast using it for photos during the evening!

larson_443

When you can’t decide what cake flavor to have, choose them all!!! Continuing our feast, we worked with Maxie B’s to create this delightful cake bar. Guests could enjoy raspberry lady, Oreo, five flavor pound, lemon almond, caramel, Dreamsicle, or strawberry buttercream.
