So many pretty pinks and lovely flowers!! My Memorial Day weekend was spent in the beautiful Asheville, North Carolina with the extremely talented Kat Schmoyer! This weekend’s wedding was an enchanting, forest fairytale…literally. Lauren and Josh’s special day was one for the books. I am so blessed to have been able to assist Kat this weekend. The venue was nothing I had ever seen before. Although the reception was technically indoors, the walls were practically made of windows and glass sliding doors making it feel more of an outdoor venue. The twinkle lights, peonies, roses, vines, trees and all things pink made this wedding one of a kind!
Kat, the owner of Dear Sweetheart Events brought me on to assist her for the weekend to use my creativity, imagination and trial and error to help her! The tables were topped with a mixture of lanterns, assorted vases with beautiful flowers, succulents and just a bit of light from the tea lights! The head table had a runner of real live moss…yes, it was real and oh so pretty! Succulents and peonies were lined down the table and the center had the brides fluffy, pink, peony-filled bouquet!
If you’re not already gushing at all the pretty details just wait till you see the suspended centerpiece. Yes, suspended like from the rafters! The bride provided two old, wood ladders that were painted white and as a team with a lot of collaboration and hard, creative thinking Kat and I successfully hung the ladders from the ceiling (using a giant ladder, Go Kat!). To add the final touches I tied a variety of flowers and vines making it just like an enchanted forest.
As for the rest of the wedding, there was cake. Lots of cake, 7 cakes. I love cake!!! Not only did they have 7 different cakes but they were all so cute (and the two slices I had were delicious)!! Their food was amazing as well, thanks to the lovely bride for giving us a table at the reception (isn’t she just the sweetest)?!I would have to say this wedding was by far my most favorite! It reminded me of a garden from a fairytale movie that would only be in your dreams, but yet Kat made it all come true!
I’ve helped Kat 3 times now, every time has been amazing, of course, things don’t always run smoothly but that’s the reality of planning a huge event. This time, I also had the honor to work with Hope Taylor
who is so very talented as well!! She’s a young photographer but her age doesn’t halt her abilities!! Hope also had a second shooter with her, Erika Lynn
who blew me away as well with her work and abilities!! I was (and still am) impressed with how awesome she and Erika both are!! I can’t wait to work with Hope again, I may add I’m a little jealous J
Hopefully I’ll have a chance to work beside Erika in the future as well! Having the opportunity to work with not one, but three extremely creative, beautiful inside (and out), talented and sweet women is more than I could have ever asked for!!
These experiences are so much fun and always leave me wanting more! I wouldn’t change a thing, except for maybe cooler days with less rain, but we can’t have everything we want J Always try to obtain your goals, never give up and always be open to meeting new people, whether they are 19, 27, 36 or 60. I have loved learning from everyone I have met in the industry and it is possible to start young!
