Paula and John first met shortly after John had moved here from California. He was looking for friends and found Paula on Instagram. They met at a bar and he fell on his face when he first walked in the door of the bar. His new shoes were slick from the rain. Lucky for him, Paula thought it was cute and went on another date with him after that!
John had planned out the proposal perfectly, however, the weather got in the way. They had gone to Grandfather Mountain and he wanted to propose then while they were on top of it. Unfortunately it was so windy he was afraid he might lose the ring if he pulled it out of his pocket. They ended up driving further away from the mountain and he decided to put the ring in a wish box for her to open. When she saw what was inside a quick “yes” was given in response.
Paula chose teal to be her main color for the wedding. Not only is it a beautiful color, but it’s also one of her favorites. Teal linens adorned all the dining tables with DIY centerpieces. Large pieces of lace fabric were put in the middle of the tables with a wine bottle wrapped in burlap and flowers inside. The lights were to pull in a more romantic feel. When we dimmed the overhead lights, it was gorgeous with all the small bulbs and candles on the tables. She also had one of their engagement photos on each of the tables for her guests to see.
It might just be me, but those cupcakes look amazing! The Sweet Life was responsible for that gorgeous cake with the burlap flowers and all the yummy cupcakes.
Palettes came in handy for a lot of Paula’s decorations. She used a couple small ones for her menu and the order of events for the wedding. Then their guest book was another one with pictures of the couple and everyone was able to sign the frame.
At the Gazebo she hung fabric and paper balls. Lining the isle with hearts made from scrapbook paper. Too cute and creative!
