Terentia and Anthony were such a fun couple to work with! They planned the entire wedding from Arizona and it was amazing to be at The Grandover in Greensboro, NC to make sure that all the plans went smoothly the day of the wedding. Terentia was calm and flexible when we had to move the ceremony inside due to rain. The ceremony turned out beautifully, with Terentia’s godmother officiating the ceremony.2013-05-18

The couple chose to accent the room with purples, violets and indigos with a lavender uplighting which looked beautiful. The music was really unique at Terentia and Anthony’s wedding as an amazing jazz band played during the cocktail hour and the groom’s cousin DJ’ed the after-dinner dancing.

With Terentia belonging to a sorority, during the reception all of the girls surrounded her and sang a sorority song. Then Anthony and the men from his fraterntiy did the same. At the end, Anthony got down on his knee and sang the last verse of the song solo to his new bride. By the end, she had tears in her eyes – it was a really sweet moment.View More: http://danalaymon.pass.us/williams

O'Henry Wedding – Greensboro Wedding Planner

Nikki and Damian were married this past October at this Greensboro Wedding at the gorgeous O’Henry Hotel! I loved working with this couple!

Nikki and Damian decided on doing a First Look. It was a perfect day!!

You might recognize the gorgeous Bridesmaid Elise on the left from her High Point Wedding!

I love this moment when I send the bride down the aisle!

Greensboro College is so gorgeous!

The  flower is one of my favorite flowers for boutonnieres.

The couple wanted low centerpieces. They were a perfect accent to the gorgeous Cognac Caprice linen.

The couple opted for delicious pies instead of the traditional wedding cake!

Vintage Wedding Featured in Weddings Magazine
We are delighted to have one of our favorite weddings to have worked on featured in Weddings Magazine. Andrea and Michael had a beautiful vintage inspired wedding day, incorporating this top trend for weddings in the coming year. From the brooch inspired detailing on Andrea’s gown to the powder blue classic getaway car, vintage touches were sprinkled throughout Andrea and Michael’s big day. Read on for details of how the perfect elegant vintage look was achieved..

Andrea’s timeless grace and style made it clear that her classic essence needed to be reflected in her wedding day details. One such element was Andrea and Michael’s custom created crest based off their new monogram. The crest was incorporated throughout the day as a traditional element appearing in surprisingly modern ways such as the tiny crest adorned flags in the reception’s signature cotton candy martinis. Themes are another popular trend for 2011, and the bride and groom opted to tie in their crest throughout several facets of their big day including invitations, menus, and even their gorgeous cake.
Other vintage elements included “pale pink linens with floral applique cream overlays” and a “stunning family tree, covered with pictures of grandparents and parents and lit by garden lights.” Including older black and white photos of your parents and grandparents on their wedding days is a simple yet chic way to add a vintage touch to your reception decor. In addition, pale colors, such as the pale pink linens used at the reception site, give the essence of classic taste without an outdated look.

Look for more vintage trends in 2011! Happy New Year!
