Trish + Oliver wed under the old oak tree at Wrightsville Manor on November 5, 2016. Trish + Oliver are such a beautiful couple, inside and out. From our first meeting with them, we knew their day was going to be absolutely stunning because of how great they are as individuals and together. Their wedding was the perfect mix of fresh greenery with gold and burgundy accents. One of the best things about Trish's wedding is that she gave absolute design control to Blossom Bay Design and they absolutely knocked it out of the park.
The ceremony altar was a white free-standing mantle from Relic Vintage Rentals, adorned by a greenery garland swag. Wrightsville Manor's green urns had two large floral pieces that were used at the back of the aisle and re-positioned on the bar for the reception. Once everything was set up, we were ready for the ceremony and ready to see Trish walk down the aisle. Oliver's reaction when he first saw Trish was priceless. Following the ceremony, guests went to the main lawn for cocktail hour. Relic set up two lounge areas, where they showcased some of their favorite pieces. This was one of Relic's first weddings at Wrightsville Manor since curating their company so it was nice seeing a large combination of everything they have in stock. The food was just as good as everything looked. Thyme Savor served grilled cheese paired with warm soup, shrimp + grits and bruschetta for cocktail hour, while the venue provided the open bar.
Once the bridal party and family finished photos with Kate Supa, guests were invited inside for the reception. Everyone was blown away when they walked in from seeing a jaw dropping greenery chandelier in the center of the room with gorgeous blooms and lights, complete with thin garland swags stretching across the entire room! A year later, this is still one of my favorite weddings with one of the prettiest designs.
We used a mix of round and rectangular tables, set with floral centerpieces or greenery runners, gold candle votives and full place settings including gold rimmed plates. Once guests found their seats, DJ Professionals introduced Trish + Oliver for the first time! They went straight into their first dance, followed by the father daughter dance and the mother son dance. Oliver's father gave the welcome and then Thyme Savor opened the buffet! Following dinner, we had toasts and then the cake cutting! They had a delicious two-tier white cake with the most amazing red peony on top! The cake was display on an old vintage Singer sewing machine covered with lace. Every detail of this day was perfectly planned and Trish + Oliver had an amazing night with all of their closest loved ones. DJ Professionals turned the music up and the lights down low so everyone could danced the night away!
CONGRATS Trish + Oliver! May every day be as incredible as your wedding day!

Favorite Wedding Moment:
Trish had no idea what the ceremony or reception design was going to be until the day of the wedding. She knew what linens and rentals she ordered and gave a few ideas to the florist but that was it. It was a bold move but totally worth it. Blossom Bay Design went above and beyond and not only surprised Trish, but they also surprised me. I was in the loop with what was going on, of course, but it was bigger and better than I thought it would be. My favorite moment was watching Trish walk into the reception for the first time once everything was set up and ready. She spent the morning quarantined to her bridal suite and it was worth the wait as she was so shocked and happy with how beautiful everything was. Much deserved for Trish because she was an amazing bride and is an amazing person!
