John & Chantel were a great couple to work with! Chantel was such an organized bride! She had every detail planned out; making our job of wedding styling, wedding coordinating and wedding decorating, pretty easy. 🙂
Chantel & John’s vintage garden theme with navy and berry accents was one of our favorite combinations yet! All of their wedding printed materials matched as well — from the invitations and welcome poster, to the card box and “In Memory” frame—Chantel & John had one of the most cohesive and coordinated weddings we’ve ever seen. Just our style. 🙂
Another way they made their wedding personal to them was by Chantel collecting vintage glassware throughout her engagement. She brought in a stunning variety. For her reception décor at McCrory Gardens, we set up each table with an assortment of her collection of vases & bottles with little gold accents. To top the look off, we filled her glassware with beautiful berry colored carnations.
To start the day off, we delivered brunch to Chantel and all of her girls (bridesmaids, mothers, grandmother, aunts, etc.!) at the hair salon.
For the ceremony, petals of flowers lined the garden path, guiding guests to the garden where John & Chantel’s ceremony would take place. A white arbor draped with soft white material, tied back with flower bouquets, framed the beautiful couple as they exchanged their vows. Flower petals lined the aisle, setting off their romantic garden theme.
After the ceremony, guests made their way to the reception held at McCrory’s Visitors Center. A great night followed with dinner, speeches, and dancing. Instead of the traditional wedding cake, the couple chose cupcakes in delicious flavors like red velvet, chocolate, and vanilla.
As the night drew to an end, guests gathered outside with flower petals as Chantel & John made their getaway. It was the perfect ending to such a romantic day!
Thank you John & Chantel for allowing us to be apart of your special day! We loved every detail!
