Katherine + Lynn's Wedding at WinMock at Kinderton
First of all, their venue, WinMock at Kinderton, is one of my favorite venues in North Carolina. It's a barn, but it's not just any barn- it's a glamorous one. It has an amazing exposed beam ceiling and is a ton of fun to decorate. The ceremony was held in the Granary Barn, pictured above.
I also love the babies breath garland piece that was hung above where the two tied the knot. Babies breath has such a sweet feeling when used in large quantities, and Amy Lynne Originals did a fantastic job creating this look.
The flower girl and ring bearer were a cute and playful little pair- and very cooperative too! I'm sure they felt very special to have such a big part of the wedding. And isn't his bow tie and seersucker jacket just darling?
Katherine is in the textile industry, which was abundantly clear as she perfectly tied together all of the aspects of her design. These "Here Comes the Bride" signs had the same blue and white, seersucker-esque, stripes from the ring bearer's jacket. It also matches some of the other details I'll show you shortly!
Didn't I tell ya the venue is glamorous? Oh my this picture of The Loft just takes my breath away. I would love to have my reception here one day.
Here's the blue and white stripes again that were included in the ring bearer's jacket and the signs. And here's a close up of one of the menu napkin rings that I crafted. You can't tell from this picture, but there is also a navy ribbon laced up the back. They were extremely intricate and very worth all the time spent making them because they turned out beautifully.
The centerpieces, designed by Amy Lynne Originals, truly made the tables pop. I love how the pinks, reds, and greens contrast the navy linens. Amy truly knows her stuff, y'all. I may be a bit biased since Becca and I share a studio space with her, but I think she's one of my favorite floral designers and I always look forward to the pieces she arranges in the studio and for the weddings we work!
Once the guests were through with the cocktail hour, they were invited to come upstairs to find their names on these escort cards we crafted. Their names were on the outside of the cards, and the table they were to sit at was on the inside.
Shortly after the guests found their seats, Katherine and Lynn were brought inside to be officially announced as Mr. and Mrs. Snow! I was so happy to be able to catch a few pictures capturing this special moment the newlyweds shared before such a big moment of their evening.
Right after they were announced, they shared the cutest choreographed, upbeat first dance. It was so much fun and a neat alternative to the slow-paced romantic first dances I've seen. Then, there were the father-daughter and mother-son dances, and a dinner catered by Holly Tate Fine Catering was served.
Once everyone was through with dinner, cake was served! I don't think this cake could be any prettier. It's a simple white cake made by Cakes by Chloe, decorated with flowers from Amy Lynne, sitting on a wooden slab, all atop a burlap and lace table runner. It's completely breathtaking. Oh, and the cake itself was phenomenal (my favorite internship perk- tasting the leftover pieces of wedding cake!). There were two flavors, and my favorite was the cookies and cream layer. Goodness gracious it was tasty.
The rest of the night, the guests enjoyed themselves by dancing the night away to a live band and having their picture taken at a photo booth with fun props. It was a lovely wedding and one I was so thrilled to help plan, design, and coordinate.
Congratulations Katherine and Lynn! You two deserve the best.
