Graylyn Wedding! Winston-Salem Wedding Planner

Katie and Christian were married in this family centered Winston Salem Wedding! These two are so incredibly sincere and sweet. Combine that with two families who couldn’t love them more and a great sense of style and you have a great wedding! When we started working together the couple was a bit overwhelmed with the idea of having over 600 guests while at the same time keeping an intimate and personal feel to their wedding day.

We brought it a lot of personal elements. We created “His” and “Her’s” menus featuring each of their favorite foods! I loved working on the event design for them. We brought it very soft colors and linens and paired it with great tent lighting!



I love the look on both Katie and her dad’s faces. They are taking in the moment and so genuine.



First Dance!






This was one large tent! Fitting 600 plus guests requires a lot of space!

Too happy!


Late night mini milkshakes were a hit!!


These ladies are ready!


I love this image! How romantic!

How gorgeous is that turquoise necklace with these bridesmaids’ dresses?

Katie was one of the most elegant and graceful brides I have ever seen. So stunning!!
