MJ and MK's Wedding

Our dear friend MJ was married April 20, 2012 to her beloved MK! I am so happy my husband and I were able to attend their beautiful ceremony, reception, and after party. The intimate ceremony & reception showcased the love of the couple and their family and friends so beautifully and the after party was a blast!

MJ’s wedding gown, a fabulous edie kaye creation, was worn with all the brilliance of a confident and loving woman. The fitted silhouette, natural waist line and hint of a mermaid hemline made from silk/cotton lining and scalloped lace provided a wonderful balance of structure and femininity. The sweetheart neckline (with groom-pleasing decollate) and lace cap sleeves framed our bride’s lovely face. A motif throughout the wedding, the scalloping of the lace brought a vintage, art-deco feel to the event. Thank-you MJ, for letting me be a part of such a joyful day!

At the Southeast Center for Contemporary Art, we had a lovely luncheon overlooking the lake. I thought everything about the reception – the colors, flowers, delicious food, the very atmosphere – just radiated love and happiness.

The after-party took place in the couple’s favorite local pub, the Old Winston Social Club.  In true North Carolina fashion, we ate barbeque, hush puppies, macaroni & cheese and green beans.  The awesome music was hand-picked by the bride and groom, the drinks were plentiful and the pub games, hilarious!

The bride needed a gown that could meet the casual atmosphere of the pub-party but still feel bridal and special.  We collaborated to come up with a strapless, circle skirt, tea-length silhouette. The dress is made from a Marc Jacobs white cotton lawn with a modern foral pattern and used the same sash that was worn with the wedding gown.
