Lauren came to us from Hickory, NC with her mother in June 2008.  We discussed her beautiful outdoor poolside spring wedding at Lake Lure.  Her colors were green, white, and blue.  The bridesmaids planned to wear either slate or green dresses while the guys were thinking of navy suits.  Then in October, Lauren had a change of heart.  She no longer envisioned an outdoor wedding at Lake Lure.  So we search for available venues in the area.  She fell in love with Homewood and the idea of an indoor ceremony in front of the fireplace.  She was able to keep her May 2 wedding date.  It was meant to be!

Lauren and Eric’s end result was magnificent.  The ceremony was lead by our favorite Tim Lolley.  Laughter and joy spread the room when Lauren and Eric said their vows.  Alan, with Blossoms at Biltmore Park did a fine job changing the floral to a romantic warm burst of ivory’s and green’s with hints of black.  He incorporated lanterns, flowers, and candles atop celadon green lamour linens.  The bridesmaids work black dresses.  They carried ivory and green hydrangea with green hypericum berries hand tied with black ribbon.  These were prefect with Lauren’s large all green and ivory hydrangea bouquet.  The groom wore an ivory stephanotis bloom with ivory tallow berries, green leaf accent and a green button mum.  Cakes by Jane brought a 4 tiered round cake with green and black ribbon.  Katy Cook was such a pleasure to work with.  She did a fantastic job showcasing Lauren and Eric by bringing out their personalities.  She knew how to turn a rainy day into a fun day!  They decided to go with a one man band, Owen Poteat.  If you haven’t seen or heard him it’s pretty amazing.   When the reception was over they headed downtown with their friends on the Grayline Trolley to continue their fun filled day.

Now, the reason we mentioned this situation is to let our readers know it’s okay to have a change of heart; to ask “is this what I really want for my wedding day?”   The most important thing is to walk away from your wedding knowing it was exactly what you wanted.  So much time, thought, energy and money goes into this one day.  It’s your day!  We as vendors are here to execute exactly what you envision.  It’s so important to choose the right vendors and select a team of people that work well together.  When Lauren came to us with a change of heart is was a simple transition for everyone involved.  The other thing to remember here is to speak up when you are not comfortable with something and express your feelings to your planner.  We are here as your advocate, to lead your vendors and assure you get exactly what you want!
