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!

A new trend - What do you think of it?

The art of the suspended cake.  I like this idea - although it would need to be in the right setting - formal, no children, etc. :)  It would also have to be done right!  Check out these photos I found on Pintrest!

Supended CakeThis would be ok - but what are those round things?

Suspended CakeOk, but the flower arrangement is a little much.  I am sure it looked spectacular at the event though!

Suspended Cake 2

Awesome!  But how in the world are they supposed to cut it?

Suspended Cake 4

This one is a disaster waiting to happen!  Look how close it is to the table and chairs!  The chair covers are beautiful though!

What do you think?  Want to try this at your wedding?

Do you want your wedding in print?

Thankfully over the years we've had several weddings in print from local wedding mags, blogs to national magazines and websites.  What we hear quite a bit from our clients is "We want to see our wedding in print".  It is possible - no matter what the budget as long as it is pretty and you don't miss the following images:

  1. Your Stationery Suite - this includes your Save The Dates, invitations, even down to the table numbers and menu cards.
  2. The Cake - Have you seen a real wedding in print and not the cake?
  3. Kids and/or Pets! - Self explanatory.
  4. Scenic Shot with the couple - background of forestry or the beautifully lit venue
  5. Shoes - go for color!
  6. Venue - this doesn't mean the front of the building, it means the set up of tables, table settings, centerpieces, etc.  Be sure to use color table linens - otherwise the white just wash everything out.
  7. Bridesmaids - do something fun!
  8. Aisle Markers - have something going down to mark your entrances.  Don't forget the altar area also.  Even if it is just a small backdrop with some up lights, it makes a huge difference!
  9. Bouquet - DUH!
  10. Boutonniere - Double DUH!
  11. The Recessional - this is you as a married couple leaving the altar.
  12. Escort Cards - make this interesting, also this photo needs to be taken before any of the escort cards are missing!
  13. Centerpieces.....of course!
  14. The Getaway.  These are the sparklers the old timey cars, limo's or just running down the street!
