Paul + Michelle- Part I

This spring, we designed a huge, three day event on Bald Head Island.  The weekend started with an island welcome party at the client's private home.

Torri + Mike

Once in a while a client comes along who challenges me beyond my comfort zone and pushes me to try things I never imagined.  When I first met Torri, I wondered whether I could pull off this type of wedding.  I had never extended my self so far outside of my own style.  There was nothing rustic or home-spun about this wedding, no wood or seagrass, or burlap.  I had to completely stretch my design to encompass acrylic, crystals, and tons of white fabric.  The result was one that I surprisingly really liked.  I was so glad that Torri came to Salt Harbor and had the confidence that we could push ourselves to match her style.  

In the process of planning her wedding, we fell in love with Torri and her positive personality and always smiling face!  The wedding and reception were held in her backyard and never, in all of my experience, have I encountered such a gracious host!  She brought all of our workers drinks and snacks and kept asking what she could do for us.  It was a great experience, and we are so glad we were able to work with Torri and Mike to plan and style their big day!

My first go at acrylic invitations.

The ceremony was in the back yard with seating in the round.  From the ceiling of the tent we hung a massive floral chandelier. 

Following the ceremony we sent everyone to the tent in front of the house for cocktail hour, while we undertook the largest "flip" of our career.

After an hour or so, we brought Torri back to see the transformation that happened in her back yard.  This was her reaction...

Celebrity DJ Rekka was onsite for the night to provide the music.

A midnight snack.

Thanks Torri and Mike for letting us be a part of such a great event!  You guys are the best!

Lea + Matt

Bald Head weddings are always so beautiful-- no where else locally can you find an eviornment so natural and so quiet, an entire island free of cars.  Weddings under the large trees on the Lighthouse lawn are always my favorite.  Lea and Matt's wedding was tucked under the trees between the lighthouse and the chapel.


Thanks so much Lea & Matt for letting us share your special day!
