Can you believe we're almost halfway through 2017?! With the weather heating up, we're looking forward to more Summer Weddings so we want to bring it back to this August 2016 wedding at the Burgwin Wright House. Meg + Ryan got married at the beautiful St. Mark's Catholic Church on Saturday, August 6, 2016. The skies were clear and the sun was shining bright. We were hired to coordinate their wedding reception, which was held at the Burgwin Wright House. Illuminating Events strung Edison lights across the gardens, Party Suppliers set up the tents, The Pearl and The Petal dropped off flowers, and we worked our magic.
The tables were set with navy linens, burlap runners, white plates, with a sleek napkin fold making the tablescape look clean and simple. There were burlap table numbers, chalkboard menus, an array of blue wine bottles with floral arrangements, and burlap candle votives. They had the perfect mix of a Southern rustic wedding, including one of my favorite things - sunflowers. They brighten up everything. Meg kept her theme simple and used the same elements throughout every detail, which made the whole wedding look wonderful and flow nicely. Their seating chart and drink menu were both chalkboard signs designed by a friend of the family. Their yummy candy bar was a sweet touch for all to enjoy.
A Thyme Savor catered the hor d'oeuvres and family-style dinner for their wedding. Once guests finished eating, the maid of honor and best man gave toasts. The best man's toast had everyone laughing so hard they were crying. We love when toasters tell stories that everyone can enjoy while still appropriate for everyone to hear. After everyone had a good laugh, Meg + Ryan cut their 3 tier white cake from One Belle Bakery with beautiful sunflowers on it from The Pearl and The Petal!
Once the cake was cut, it was time to dance! Meg + Ryan were such a fun and sweet couple. Everyone loved dancing the night away despite the summer heat. CONGRATS Meg + Ryan. Thank you for choosing us to help with your big day.

Our Favorite Wedding Moment:
The couple hired a horse-drawn carriage to whisk them way at the end of the night. Not only was the horse super sweet, but so was the couple. This was the perfect way to end such a romantic evening!
