• Interview with a Raleigh Wedding Cake Baker

Love Cake Interview

In the wedding industry I am continually meeting amazing business owners with incredible stories and backgrounds. So I've decided to start a new blog series, featuring local event professionals in the Triangle area. These pieces will be a little peek into the lives of the my fellow business owners, a little bit about them and weddings from their point of view. So to kick off the series, I have an important confession: I Love Cake More specifically, I love Love Cake! I met Kristina Solloway in early 2016, and we

Blue & White Wedding Inspiration

Blue and White Wedding Inspiration The first time I spoke with Caroline Cash (owner of The Prettiest Pieces) we were already talking about doing a shoot together. I asked her if there was anything in particular she was dying to showcase, and when she mentioned her blue and white collection I knew we had our winner. Organizing and styling this shoot at The Parlour at Mann's Chapel was a blast, and a true testament to the power of collaboration between so many talented professionals. I am so thrilled with the

Winston Salem Wedding

Backyard Wedding When Hanna told me she was having her DIY wedding in her parent's backyard, I was eager to help. She had her day pretty much planned out, with family and friends helping with the decor and details. And boy, does Hanna have an eye for design! She even created her own invitations and programs! I love day-of coordinating for DIY brides; allowing them to relax and soak in the results of all the hard work they put toward this day. I stopped by the family

  • Raleigh Wedding Planner Bridal Fashion Show

Night at the Museum

Bridal Open House I recently had the pleasure of working with the North Carolina Museum of History to organize their summer bridal open house. I loved working with Cheri, the museum's special events director, and all the awesome vendors who helped showcase the museum's beautiful event space. Local Triangle wedding vendors came together to showcase their work in the museum, and despite the stormy weather we had a great turn out! The museum of history, located in downtown Raleigh, has several spaces available for rent. We made use of the main lobby

Chapel Hill Summer Wedding

When we moved to Durham, the Hubster and I immediately went on a friend quest. Working from home can seriously limit daily human interactions, so I made meeting people a top priority. Matt and Lauren were some of the first folks we met in Durham, and I still cannot believe our good luck. They are some of the most down to earth, generous, and fun-loving people I have ever known! So, naturally, I was giddy with excitement when Lauren asked me to be their day-of wedding coordinator. Matt and Lauren were married at the

Virginia Winery Wedding

Hayley and Dave got married at Doukenie Winery in northern Virginia this summer. When I started talking to Hayley about her wedding, I could not wait to be a part of bringing her vision to life! Hayley has some seriously talented friends, and they really took DIY to the next level with custom floral arrangements, hysterical MCing, and fantastic handmade decor. I love DIY weddings. I just do. The personal aspect it brings to the event, the feeling that friends and family have infused their love into your special day

Valles Crucis Mountain Wedding

First blog post! Better make it a good one... How about this fantastic farm wedding in Valle  Crucis, NC? I loved this wedding for many reasons. A big one is that the bride and groom are good friends of ours. We’ve known Wilson since freshman year of college at Appalachian State University! So yea, Hubster was a groomsman,and I had the privilege of directing their ceremony and reception. After Kyle and I got married, we were pretty sure Wilson and Ashlyn would be next. But Wilson took his time proposing, and we
