Kendall + Patrick: Sneak Peek

When a little girl imagines her wedding, she probably doesn't let her mind wander nearly as far as Kendall's must have to dream up this incredible weekend extravaganza wedding in Highlands, NC. Truly breathtaking; from the scenic mountainside venue, Kendall's family's vacation home, to the elaborate decor elements brought in all the way from New Orleans, to the lovely couple themselves. Kendall and Patrick's wedding was so captivating that we are still in awe of it, but can't quite find the words to express it, so to get an idea of why we are so love-struck with this wedding, watch this amazingly beautiful video created by Inkspot Crow Films.

It's okay if you're having trouble breathing, it happens to us every time we watch it too. Simply amazing, right? It has to be mentioned that the brilliant minds at I Do Events and Urban Earth Studios contributed so much to this wedding, and it would have never taken flight without their dedication. We asked our wonderful Amber Fouts to shoot some behind the scenes footage, so here's a small taste of the wedding that must have been built from a dream.Want more? Just wait until you see the photos Genya at Vue Photography shot during the blowout celebration, coming to a blog near you soon. We can't wait to bring you more of Kendall and Patrick's wedding, but until then, you can also check out the fall issue of Unveiled to read and see more about how this magical wedding came to life. 
Stay tuned for some more Kendall + Patrick gushing.


Christina + Dan

Meet Christina + Dan; they are the type of couple that makes our hearts smile.We loved putting together this tender wedding at Callanwolde earlier this year. We knew then that Dan + Christina's wedding was one of our "Best of 2012,"  and looking at these wonderful photos from Erin Hearts Court just makes us swoon all over again. Christina, an inspirational jewelry designer, has an eye for gorgeous aesthetics, and we loved watching her dreams take shape with the help of the the creative souls from Amy Osaba event.floral.design. Peaches, pinks and pops of turquoise made for the perfect spring color scheme, while the all white ceremony site mirrored Christina + Dan's style-- classic, with a touch of  fun whimsy.
 One of Christina + Dan's initial fears was finding a menu that Dan, who is allergic to dairy and eggs, could enjoy without worry. Christina took great care to make sure items that were designated for Dan, like his dinner, pepper seared filet of beef with a burgundy demi glaze served with local vegetables in a maple glaze and roasted fingerling with truffled mushrooms, did not contain any traces of dairy or egg. Other guests enjoyed a freshly baked biscuit bar with local preserves during the cocktail hour, a choice of beef, pan seared scallops with a ginger + wasabi glaze, or a slow roasted chicken with a meyer lemon jus for dinner. After dinner, a slew of cakes, several which were vegan, a fresh fruit bar and Dan's favorite, vegan rice crispy treats satisfied everyone's sweet tooth. We just loved being able to accommodate a dietary restriction like Dan's to make their wedding day a little less stressful, and a lot more delicious. 
Up, up and away!! Wishing this lovely couple many, many happy years together.
