I'm so excited to be able to guest post for Elizabeth today while she is celebrating her marriage! I've just loved following along her journey of wedding planning and we've enjoyed telling stories and sharing ideas!
Today I thought it'd be fun to give you a quick glimpse at my wedding planning and inspiration for our wedding which is April 6, 2013!
I'm Annie and this is my fiance Kevin on the night we got engaged in Hilton Head. You can read that story here!
First things first - location. I grew up in Maryland, he grew up just outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. We live in uptown Charlotte (and met here too!). It was only fitting that we got married uptown. St. Peters Episcopal is the church, Charlotte City Club is our reception location!
Then we decided on Lula Kate (Chandler) bridesmaid dresses and classic tuxes for the guys!
Colors for our event will be blue-ish emerald (the color of the bridesmaid dresses) and a light coral. We'll also pair some champagne and light gold with it. I think they're unique colors but very pretty for an evening wedding in Charlotte in the Spring.
Flowers - I'm all about the peonies! Coral peonies to be exact.
May have to use some garden roses too because it's a little early in the peony season, but we'll see!
As for music - we got the band Still Cruzin'. They call themselves the party band of the south! ;) Looking forward to that!
Feel free to come follow along as I wedding plan, share recipes and talk about what I did last night on my blog, Classic Annie! Visit me here!
