Real NC Wedding : Andrea & Michael By Erin Mclean Events
Vintage Grace and Custom Taste
Andrea and Michael met on the tennis courts of Elon College and live in Washington DC. Andrea has a vintage grace and style to her that just had to be reflected in her wedding day details. As a result the bride and groom were married surrounded by family and friends in a picture perfect church in downtown Greensboro.
Following the ceremony, guests were greeted at the Greensboro Country Club with signature cotton candy martinis decorated with flags containing Andrea and Michael’s crest. The crest theme was repeated throughout the reception ― most notably on the menu cards, the invitations and the cake.
As guests arrived for the reception they found the guest book table where the Mother of the Bride had created a stunning family tree, covered with pictures of grandparents and parents and lit by garden lights. The groom’s cake was a stack of edible legal books surrounded by the scales of justice and a number of antique law books to highlight the groom’s profession.
The ballroom was decorated in pale pink linens with floral appliqué cream overlays. The pin-spot lighted tables were adorned with a combination of high and low centerpieces, pale pink velum votives, custom menu cards and table numbers featuring engagement pictures of the couple. The head table was a long rectangle scattered with striking low centerpieces and candles. The bride and groom’s chairs sported monogrammed seat covers created by the Mother of the Bride.
The band The Dickens, kept the dance floor packed the entire night. The guests were also treated to warm Krispy Kreme favors as they made their way out to the formal exit for the couple. The happy couple left the reception in a shower of pink rose-petals. They were whisked away in a bright pink pom-pom decorated powder blue vintage automobile.
