PRESS :: The Bride's Book Spring 2010

Back in January, I designed & coordinated a feature for The Bride's Book Magazine. The Spring 2010 issue features this shoot which took place on a cold, windy rooftop in January!
Thanks to the vendors who also participated in this shoot:

And an extra big thanks to two of my favorite photographers, Candice & Daniel Lanning from The Beautiful Mess for all of their extra effort & patience. Y'all do beautiful work!

If you haven't seen a copy of the magazine yet, go pick one up- or leave me a nice comment below and maybe I'll send you one! Who doesn't love a fun magazine in the mail?!

Grand Opening :: E.G. Couture

The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind! I attended a conference for wedding planners in Indianapolis called Eventology {there will be a blog post with lots of links coming soon!} and then came home just in time to help celebrate the Grand Opening of the Charlotte area's newest wedding boutique, E.G. Couture.
E.G. Couture is owned by the lovely CJ of J. Major's Bridal Boutique in Dilworth. CJ & Shea Walker, the manager of E.G. Couture hosted a lovely cocktail party last Thursday at the new boutique!
It was a great chance to see some of my favorite ladies in the Charlotte wedding industry as well as meet some new people! Melissa Lamkin from Charlotte Wedding Magazine's Bride + Groom blog as well as Drea Cunningham from Cunningham Photo Artists (who was on hand to lend her fabulous photography skills) both blogged about the event- complete with images!

And for Drea's version click here

I am so excited for CJ and Shea and this new venture! Brides if you're looking for a great deal on a designer gown or some fun, unique accessories for your wedding you should definitely visit E.G. Couture in Matthews!
Congratulations on a successful grand opening! I can't wait to work with you ladies soon!

*PS :: Special THANK YOU to the amazing Lisa Hiner with Classic Party Rentals in Charlotte! She was so great to help me out with the rentals for this event while she was up to her eyeballs in Queens Cup logistics & details. Thanks for all your help, Lisa! :)

New Hours for Marriage Licenses in Mecklenburg County

Heads up local brides & grooms to be! The Mecklenburg County Register of Deeds office is cutting back on the hours they are available to process marriage licenses in an effort to save money.
The new hours are now Monday through Friday from 8 AM until 5 PM (plan to arrive by 4:30 PM). You can also visit the county website to print the necessary paperwork ahead of time which should speed up the process!
The Mecklenburg County Register of Deeds office is located at 720 East 4th Street in Charlotte.
You can read the entire article from The Charlotte Observer here.
