Autumn Wine Wedding at Fowler's Mill: October 16

I first met with Mary and Mike about a year before their fall wedding and (I know I say this all the time but really) they are one of the absolute sweetest couples I have EVER met! The entire time working with them was such a breeze and we had a wonderful time coming up with ideas for their wedding. They wanted a big band feel, so we hired the Art Company Orchestra to give them just that! We also developed a fall theme, so incorporated wine stoppers as favors for the adults (with "Fall in Love" tags attached) and "Snazzy Apples" for the kids (custom chocolate, caramel and goody apples available October through February) made by none other than Allison of Kirkbrides! All of the custom stationery was also provided through Kirkbrides.

Our colors included champagne, ivory, chocolate brown and copper and some burnt orange as you can see in the centerpieces. We even had a chandelier hung above the dance floor to add some romance to the room by Grande Designs. We also incorporated Mary and Mike's love of wine through a custom wine tasting table in cocktail hour, in our winecork centerpieces and placecard table, as well as naming the tables after their favorite brands. To top it all off, they took a romantic honeymoon to Napa Valley!

Thank you Mary and Mike for the enjoyable opportunity to plan and design your wedding. We all absolutely loved meeting and working with you and wish you the very best with all the happy years we know you have to come.

A note from Mary:
Good morning Valarie -
Hope this finds you well. Married life is fabulous so far - but things have been extremely busy since we got back from the honeymoon.
Mike & I couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect day - much in part to all of the help from you and the team at Kirkbrides. It was so nice to see all of our plans and vision come together into a wonderful event. Our guests were very impressed and I continue to get comments about how we had thought of everything down to the very last detail. I continue to tell everyone that working with you and your team was the best money I spent for the wedding!
Maura and Lyndsey were outstanding and really ensured that the day flowed smoothly and that everything was taken care of - - -if something didn't go according to plan, we certainly weren't aware of it!. If you could provide me their addresses, I would like to send them each a little something for all of their efforts.
I hope that all of your other weddings that weekend went as smoothly as ours. We haven't seen many pictures yet but will definitely forward some to you so you don't have to wait to see the ones from Z Media.
Talk to you soon!
-Mary & Mike
