Peyton + Ryan were one of the first couples to get married at Wrightsville Manor. Peyton got ready on site in the bridal suite at Wrightsville Manor. There were mahogany chiavari chairs from Wrightsville Manor set up outside facing the trees for the ceremony. We used a 2-post white arbor from L&L Tent & Party Rentals set up adjacent to the big oak tree. Along the aisle hung rose pomanders on shepherds hooks. Their photo guestbook sat atop a rustic table with a guestbook sign, pictures, candles, and flowers in a mason jar.
Following the ceremony, guests headed inside to the reception. The color palette consisted of shades of blush and lots of greenery. This was so beautiful with the brick wall in the background. There were long tables set up in a U-formation. The tables were set with white linens, tan napkins, mix matched china rented from China Dolls, mason jars, and large wooden boxes with lush floral arrangements from Beautiful Flowers by June. This rustic chic look was perfect for Wrightsville Manor. Each place setting was different and was beautifully placed to coordinate the large and small china plates together. Their sweetheart table had a long floral arrangement, a Mr. & Mrs. sign, and candles. Wilmington Uplighting strung Edison lights back and forth through the middle of the room. It truly looked like a fairy tale on the inside.
Peyton + Ryan shared their first dance, and then had a father/daughter, and a mother/son dance. After the dances, A Thyme Savor opened the buffet for a delicious dinner. Peyton's father gave a wonderful toast that lead into the cake cutting. Their cake was a three-tiered white cake that sat on top of a wine barrel. Peyton + Ryan then invited all onto the dance floor for a night of dancing and fun. Their wedding was picture perfect.
It was such a beautiful day for the couple and we wish them a lifetime of happiness. Congrats on your wedding and your beautiful baby Slate on the way!
Peyton + Ryan's wedding was so incredible, it was recently featured on Emmaline Brides!
Peyton's WeddingWire Review:
"Let me tell you a little about my experience with Knot Too Shabby... Hands down, Melissa and her whole team were the best decision I made for the whole wedding. They were AMAZING! I can't praise them enough. They were punctual, listened to all of my concerns and desires, took a LOT of stress off of my shoulders for the whole "month of" that they were mine, and made my wedding seamless! My wedding night went smoothly and flawlessly. Not one hiccup, not one problem, not one disaster. Nothing! And that is wonderful to be able to say because there are tons of wedding horror stories out there. I truly believe that is because Melissa and her team were there taking care of every small detail. Melissa was on top of everything! Melissa and her team took all of my planning, tears, and hard work and brought my whole vision to life the night of our wedding. She was so easy to work with, always returned my calls, and went above and beyond. I didn't even direct them to use my ceremony decor during the reception, but they came up with creative uses that looked beautiful! It's small details like that example that made me truly love and appreciate being able to work with Knot Too Shabby. If you want a professional, talented, and caring team to help plan or coordinate your event, I highly recommend Knot Too Shabby!!!!!!!!!!"
