COVID 19 & Your Wedding: We can't deny the fact that no one knows what is going to happen in the coming months. The uncertainly this pandemic has brought on really makes a bride and groom think about their options. If you have a late June or after wedding, do you stay on course? Do you change it up? I know a couple who got married on their March wedding day with only immediate family and having their 400 people reception in late September. Do you reschedule all together? Talk to your vendors and see if you can find a date that they are all available. You want that deposit to work for you! What about postponing the wedding all together? You may feel more comfortable deciding on a new date at the first of the year. Whatever you decide, just remember that love is not canceled. "Stay strong, healthy and LOVE your people."

When the venue resembles Graceland and the plans are to be married by "Elvis" you know it's going to be a great wedding! Starmount Forest Country Club was the perfect place for Eddiana and Ben's September wedding last year. A beautiful family was formed, cake made by a friend, Ashley Cox Photography capturing every moment, and NCDJ DJ Paul Cordts keeping the tunes going til the end. Every wedding needs a classic moment to laugh about later. There's nothing like tripping on your dress as you make your grand exit. Happy 7 months to this awesome couple!

As the wedding planner, I always enjoy seeing the guests' reactions when they see an "unexpected" (my term for different) decor detail. A fishbowl centerpiece is definitely something like no other. Planners, what's your favorite "unexpected" decor detail?

Just wanted to give NCDJ DJ Paul Cordts kudos for his idea to have Eddiana & Ben enjoy a last dance before their grand finale exit. Every one left the reception, lights dimmed and romantic song playing was definitely special. You can't get that exact time back.

Photo opportunities with the bridesmaids and groomsmen are endless. Brides and grooms don't forget about honoring your special little ones who are part of your big day. Besides tossing petals down the aisle and holding the "special pillow" or sign, you'll want to plan a few fun photos centered around them. Here are a few adorable photos ideas:

*get her a matching robe (like the big girls!)
*photo of her admiring bride's wedding dress hanging up
*flower girl putting on the bride's veil
*have the bride get down on her level & put her veil over the flowergirl
*bride & flower girl explore the church, venue, outside grounds together (holding hands)
*adoring glance
*groom helping ring bearer get dressed
*ring bearer and groom walking the grounds (exploring)
* groom and ring bearer "high fiving" each other (groom is on little guy's level
* ring bearer is one of the guys with a pair of coordinating socks
* ring bearer giving bride a cheeky kiss
*flower girl and ring bearer with bride and groom: tight close bear hug

Happy Mother’s Day to all women. Even if you don’t have a child, I think all women have been a “mother” to someone. I dearly miss my amazing mother Every.Single.Day.

I am really loving the seating place card "leaf" on the orange. Very "unexpected" (my term for different!)

Since we got a little lift from #stayathome what store did you walk into today? Before we know it, brides will be walking down the aisle again because love ❤️ is not canceled. “Stay strong, healthy and LOVE your people.”

05/09/2020

So bright and springy! Just perfect for today.

05/09/2020

So much GORGEOUS with this photo! Just reminds you that in today's circumstances that love is definitely not canceled. "Stay strong, healthy and LOVE your people."

(Click on the photo) Well, this video has nothing to do with weddings and events. I just thought it would be something sweet and “unexpected” (my term for different). 😊

I have stated many times that I LOVE the “unexpected” (my term for different) at weddings. Whether it’s the smallest detail in the table centerpiece (like a feather) or silk ribbon holding the boutonnières together. But, I think my most fave is when decor is UP...UP! UP! UP! What do you think of this simple UP detail at Merrimon-Wynn House in Raleigh, NC?

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again… a little greenery goes a long way at @merrimonwynne!!

A huge “shout out” to Anna with Anna Danielle Photography in High Point, NC for this gorgeous photo! I was looking to replace my current website home page banner photo and couldn’t quite find something that “moved” me. Anna sent me this one with a pink flower and ring. I immediately loved it!

What are your thoughts on using just one type of flower in a bouquet?

On a walk with Winston, I came up on these beautiful dark pink calla lilies. I had to get pictures! Calla lilies are so elegant! Just a handful make a stunning bouquet. Let me know your thoughts 🤔.

Summerfield Farms

This venue offers a beautiful setting for a wedding. The property is very well maintained and everyone I have corresponded with have been knowledgeable, accommodating, and delightful to work alongside. I can always depend on Elizabeth Ansari Lewis's services to make my brides feel reassured that their special day with go off without a hitch. I highly recommend Summerfield Farms to anyone having a wedding or special event.

A passion for weddings

From the time I was a little girl, I have LOVED weddings! I cherish fond memories of my twin brother and younger sisters (also twins!) playing “”wedding.” One sister would be the bridesmaid while the other sister was the flower girl. Of course, I was the bride! Wearing my mom’s nylon night gown, I created the perfect veil by bobby pinning a lace tablecloth to my head. With a large bouquet of artificial flowers clutched in my hands, I made my grand entrance out of the kitchen. As we all hummed the famous “Here Comes The Bride” music, I slowly walked down the shag carpet aisle toward my invisible awaiting groom. My brother, “the preacher,” was then cued by me to say his rehearsed lines starting the marriage ceremony. As he looked at my invisible soon-to-be husband, he would say, “I know you do not want to get married today” and chuckle, knowing I would be mad because he was “not doing it right.” In frustration, I would announce, “We’re starting over!” as I pointed back down the aisle. I took playing “wedding” very seriously.

“One person with passion is better than forty people merely interested.” - E.M. Forster
