Kaylynn + David wed at The RiverRoom in downtown Wilmington, NC on Saturday, April 11th, 2015 during Azalea Festival 2015. The ceremony took place outside on the deck with around 90 guests, where we were able to enjoy Dockside Strings and a breathtaking view of the Cape Fear River. The couple lined against the pretty brick wall of the JW Brooks Building and used white resin chairs for guest seating. The aisle chairs were adorned with baby pictures of the couple. A Boxed Event provided the gorgeous white flower arrangements with light pink accents for the wedding and bridal party. After the ceremony, guests celebrated and blew bubbles at Kaylynn + David as they took their first steps as husband and wife! After the ceremony, guests were invited to enjoy live music, crafts and vendors in the traditional Azalea Festival downtown while we flipped the deck for cocktail hour.
As cocktail hour began, guests were able to order drinks at the bar followed by snapping a photo of themselves with a classic Polaroid camera to find their seating assignment for the night! They could then go back outside to the deck to enjoy putt putt, corn hole, hula hoops, and more. The overall theme was wine and golf, which is why we kept the decorations playful and interesting. Each table was named a different golf course with fun facts about the course on the back.
The reception felt rustic yet classy as the color scheme used neutral colors with pops of light pink and peach. We added a romantic touch with lace overlays on each table. There were gorgeous pink flower arrangements, silver vases atop a glass mirror that really made the candle light pop. We strung the guests polaroids along the brick wall with twine and small clothes pins. We also set up a date jar where guests were able to share their best ideas of a date for the newlyweds. I can only imagine all the crazy suggestions their friends and family made! Edison lights were strung inside the room from AV People and Knot Too Shabby Events staff added ivory flower balls to the ceiling to complete the look. Dinner was catered by K & W which was served buffet style followed by the best part of the night, dessert! Cake and an assortment of cupcakes were provided by Creative Cake Design by Tammy Hodge.
After dessert, DJ Wilmington introduced the couple's first dance to the song “All of Me” by John Legend, followed by an open dance floor for the night. Around dusk, guests were invited to go outside to enjoy fireworks along the beautiful Cape Fear Riverwalk. As the newlyweds were sent off, we held sparklers which was truly a magical moment for everyone! Theo Milo Photography captured the majestic moments throughout the entire night and we cannot thank him enough! The pictures alone are enough to make your heart melt. Congratulations Kaylynn + David, we wish you guys nothing but happiness as you enter this new and exciting chapter together.

Enjoying the fireworks from Azalea Fest weekend on the deck of The RiverRoom with all of the wedding guests.
