Laura + Chris wed at 128 South in downtown Wilmington on November 7, 2014 but not before Laura's bridal luncheon and rehearsal dinner on Friday night at The RiverRoom. Laura enlisted Knot Too Shabby Events to help her plan an intimate bridal luncheon at The RiverRoom and a rehearsal dinner later in the afternoon with their closest loved ones.
The luncheon was laid back and sweet. We used navy chevron linens from ETC Party Rentals with teal napkins. Sweet N' Savory catered the brunch. YUM! Fiore Fine Flowers designed the floral centerpieces that we were able to use for the rehearsal dinner too. The ladies enjoyed a mimosa bar with three different fruit choices and then left to get their nails done!
About 40 guests returned around 5:00pm to enjoy a catered dinner by Middle of the Island. This black + white reception looked beautiful with the addition of hanging Edison lights from The Audio Visual People. The amazing Carolina Hurricane's hockey groom's cake was designed by Imaginary Cakes. The hockey player was even made to look just like Chris!
We had a great time dining on the River before their big day. Congratulations Laura & Chris! KTSE loved being a part of your day before the big day!
Laura's WeddingWire Review:
"Melissa was incredible. She is full of advise and ideas. She took the little bit I gave to her and ran with it. I walked in the morning of my bridesmaid brunch and was in complete shock over how beautiful she made the room look. After leaving to enjoy the day with my bridal party and returning for the rehearsal dinner Melissa had done it again. The room was transformed into the perfect atmosphere for us all to enjoy a beautiful, relaxing evening together. All the vendors were coordinated without me having to make one phone call. I never even had to clean up a mess or pack a box up after either event. Melissa took care of everything including my bridal nerves! She is well worth the investment and in my opinion underpaid! It shows in her work and planning that she is experienced and loves what she is doing."
