The stillness as it awaits.....

I love creating experiences for my couples. Each person that walks into our office carries a story; they have a presence that tells a little about who they are as a person.

We love designing events that resonate with who our clients are and the vision that they have for their wedding or event. For this wedding celebration event, we wanted to design a space with a new, vibrant, and a comfortable feeling, yet glamorous and full of life. We were building an experience where friends and family would bask in this joyous celebration of two people in love joining their lives together.

This video shows the beauty and stillness of the room as it awaits the laughter and joy the bride, her groom, and their families.

Today marks the one-month anniversary of Mary Catherine and Blake Gideon. Happy Anniversary to a fun, beautiful, and lovely couple. We wish you many, many years of happiness! It was an honor to plan with you and for you!

Creating a Magical Experience Part 1

Creating a Magical Experience Part 1

We are so excited to share just a few of the photos from this weekend! Congratulations to our beautiful couple, Chase and Lauren Brookshire!

I always enjoy meeting new couples. After that initial meeting, our journey together begins. To us at Laurie D'Anne Events, it is more than just planning a wedding it is planning a magical experience. It's a journey of getting to know the couple and their families and getting to create something that is not only collaborative with them but equally for them. It’s creating unique experience that will create lasting memories.

We loved planning with Lauren, Chase and their families. They knew what they wanted and trusted us to bring that environment and aesthetic to life. Each time we met together we learned more about them which allowed us to create the wedding of their dreams.

It didn't take long for me to know that The Estate at Cherokee Dock would be the perfect backdrop to their wedding weekend! Dot forget to visit us in two weeks for Part 2.

Thank you to the team that worked so hard to make it a spectacular weekend.

Here's to a wonderful, sweet, loving couple that we are happy to have as part of our LDE family!!

This post is dedicated to Mike Whitler. He was my florist and friend for many years. I remember taking him luxurious floral photos and say. " I want to something like this! " He would always say, " Of course you do! " and chuckle because I was always dreaming big. This weekend I thought of him often and how he must be looking down on me with a really big grin!

Special thanks to Katy Stewart, of Gatherer Floral Co. for an outstanding job and for working with us to bring this design to life!
