Our third Fake Wedding has come and gone! Each one we’ve done has been different in the people involved, the visual imagery, the weather–everything but the location! Our guests enjoyed passed hors d’ouevres from Thyme Savor Catering, then washed them down with some signature cocktails from On The Rocks Bartending. The charity benefit raffle is always a hot event and this was no exception. Certain individuals had a hard time holding all the tickets they bought! The good news is that the babies in the NICU at New Hanover Regional Medical Center will be receiving some gifts!
If you have never witnessed the “Newlywed Game,” you are missing a fun time! DJ Professionals ran the show, calling out “Who controls the remote” or “Who is the better driver?” The results were quite controversial for our guests, and I’m sure there were several heated discussions on the drive home thanks to us.
Knot Too Shabby Event Coordination was the behind-the-scenes presence we depended on to be the backbone of the event.
Anchored In Love Photography was there to snap the photos, with Kelly laughing and smiling all over the place, and even tearing up the dance floor.
Our bridal party was dressed to the nines in snazzy duds generously loaned from bevello Boutique, The Wedding Dress Shoppe, Cape Fear Formal Wear, and topped off with floral garnishes from Desi’s Floral and Design Studio. Adrianne Lugo Professional Hair and Makeup Artists got our bridal party close-up ready. TJ Dunn was there to match up all our style choices and make them work together. It almost seems like everything was chosen to go together!
Event Shuttle Service whipped our bridal party around in style; a Rolls-Royce no less! Our downtown neighbors at Hot Pink Cake Stand provided pink champagne and coconut cupcakes, and the video team may or may not have smacked their lips and drooled a little bit.
We had a deck furniture setup straight out of a luxury high-rise from Eventful Furniture and Design. Jamie and Jimmy at ETC Party Rentals did their usual outstanding work which you can see in the dining room. They say there are people so good at their jobs that when they’re done, you won’t be sure they’ve done anything at all. ETC is definitely an example of this. We’ve come to cherish their contributions to any event at which we are present.
Brooke from Southern Bee designs made us look so professional with all her chalk art and visual design of our promotion materials. Last but first in our hearts, Khalilah with A Boxed Event added the extra touches we needed to make The River Room look like a Shakespearean utopia. So many interesting people contributed a lot of work to this event and it really shows. Watch the video below and let us know what ideas you would borrow for your own wedding!
