Have you decided to change your last name after your wedding?

It is always a tough decision - Do you change your name? Do you hyphenate? Now even will he take your last name? There are so many options.

Just because you have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. (If you thought that was the hard part, wait until you see the lines at the social security office and DMV.) There's a shortcut, though: Make it easy on yourself and fast-track your paperwork with the brilliant and easy.

Just follow the link for directions!

Venue Review: Noah's of High Point

I do like this venue!  Not just because we are a preferred professional, but because of the simplicity of the event space.  If you are looking for a high end venue with lots of different options this is a venue that you should visit.  Here are some photos that we've taken:

There are lots of decor options available and the location is PERFECT for guest count of around 100 - 110. I know they allow more, but it can get crowded and you want people to have room to move and dance and meet their new family members!

Ask us about our new full planning package created just for this venue!

Benefits of Hiring an Event Designer

Yes, there is a difference between a wedding planner and an event designer.  A planner plans and a designer designs.  Very different.  Anyway here are some benefits of hiring an event designer! Time Saver 

Why hunt for wedding linens and all those little details?  You should be enjoying your time being engaged.  Let a professional help with all that.  We are trained to make your event look and feel like you as a couple!

Experience

We've done it before.  Most likely this is your first time getting married - or having a wedding.  Its our 200th time! We work everyday to gather information on items, professionals, pricing, venues, etc.  Let us use our knowledge to your benefit.

Connections

We do attend those boring networking evenings (some are fun), to make sure that we know who is who in our industry.  We also keep track of what they can - and cannot do, what they charge, etc so we can pass that knowledge onto our clients.

Worry Free

All you need to worry about is your hair, makeup and attire.  That is it.  We worry about your guests having a good time, making sure that everything is as you wanted it (or more!).

Creativity

Even if you are creative a wedding designer can come up with something unique just for the two of you.  Sometime it is a backdrop, food display, guest table design, centerpiece design, invitation design.  There are loads of places for a designer to be creative in a wedding!

Just a few of our designs:

Live Wedding Painting

This is just something that I love and if you can fit it into your budget - you will love it too! If you are considering this as an option you will need to make sure that the artist has access to the venue (fully decorated!) at least 3 hours in advance!  This way they can paint the backgrounds and get set up before hand.

Then during your ceremony they are painting the you, your groom and the people that you love.  Here are some samples from WedOnCanvas.com

Venue: Noah's Event Center Mocksville

Let's just say for being located in an industrial park, Noah's is pretty cool!  I LOVE the chairs! No chair covers needed, I love the fact that they have ceiling options and that the floors are hard wood.  I love the bride and groom getting ready rooms!  The event area's are cute, but tight for both the ceremony and reception area.  I wouldn't put more than 150 guests in there, but the venue says 200+.  I prefer to have room for my wedding guests to walk between tables and make visiting and meeting new family members easy. The venue is pretty pricey, but then again, aren't they all! The difference here is it is well kept and has lots of little benefits!  Fitted for a more modern, contemporary type of couple.

Here are some photos for you!

Fowl Cay Private Villas

Learn about leasing your own private island for your wedding or honeymoon!

Escape to your own Private IslandFowl Cay is a private island with a difference: discover six uniquely beautiful villas spread across a private 50-acre retreat in the secluded chain of the Exumas, Bahamas. No neighboring hotels, no passing ships, no crowds – just you and the excitement of exploring a special kind of wilderness. Made up of 365 tiny islands and cays, stretching across more than 120 miles of crystal-clear, warm turquoise water – the natural beauty of the Exumas is one of the most extraordinary settings on the planet. It's time to explore the world of Fowl Cay – no longer just a dream...

Sitting at the center of the beautiful Exuma chain made up of little, scattered islands, deserted beaches and sandbars is Fowl Cay Resort. A vacation on Fowl Cay is truly like no other... and there are barely words to describe it–other than this is a getaway you need to experience for yourself. The best way to describe Fowl Cay Resort is that it is a casual vacation experience that combines the freedom of renting your very own island villa (or the entire island) with all the quality amenities of a full-service resort.

Each villa comes with a fully equipped and stocked kitchen where you will wake up each morning on your own schedule and make your own breakfast. Then for lunch have our chef pack you a picnic lunch to take to a deserted beach in your own boat (also included with your villa). After you spend your day exploring the central Exumas, come back to Fowl Cay and shower in your luxurious villa and head up to the Hill House for cocktail hour and a gourmet meal with the other guests on the island and enjoy great food and conversation. It's laid back luxury in the natural beauty of the islands that makes Fowl Cay so special and why a vacation with us will redefine your idea of relaxing and getting away from it all.

Ask us how to make your reservation!

Happy Planning!
