what a card

My day just got better as the UPS guy arrived and delivered my long-awaited new business cards {my husband claims that I am impatient but I just like to think of it as extreme excitement}. Either way, they are finally here and I thought I would share them with the outside world.

I can not give enough gratitude and credit to Stephanie Huxter of SCM Design. If you have not already checked out her site {}, please do so! She does amazing design work and makes gorgeous invitations!

with love.

katie and nolan tie the knot {raffaldini vineyards wedding}

Katie and Nolan were married on July 31st at Raffaldini Vineyards in Elkin, North Carolina. Despite the rain {and when I say rain, I mean rain!}, the wedding was beautiful. The ceremony took place outdoors under a tent {thank goodness!} while the reception was brought inside the villa.

Katie loves Pottery Barn and wanted to bring its rustic yet polished feel to her wedding. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day...

the view from the villa. 

the ring box with katie and nolan's carved heart theme. love this!

homemade corkboard. lots of vino was consumed to make this possible! 
centerpieces were recycled wine crates with potted sunflowers and other wildflowers.
katie and nolan gave their guests a polaroid camera and asked to hang their thoughts on the line.
even their puppy, bella  had something to say!
no sparklers allowed. solution= these homemade ribbon wavers for a fun grand exit!

thank you to the vendors that made this event possible:
venue- Raffaldini Vineyards
florist- Huffman Events
rentals- All Star Rentals
rentals- Hauser Rental Service
photographer - sLogan Photography
wedding dress/bridesmaids dresses- Jcrew

vino anyone?

with love.

change is in the air

I am beyond excited to announce the newly launched and re-branded FavorMeEvents website and blog today! Oh my, what a labor of love this has been and the reason why I have been a bit quiet lately.

You will notice some changes {besides the logo and website}. Please note that my office phone number has changed. As well, if you are wanting to archive back to the old blog, feel free! The link is included to the right of this post.

Today also marks the third anniversary of my sweet grandfather's unexpected passing. He was a business owner, perfectionist {sometimes to a fault} and a jokester. In many ways, I see his traits in me and thought it was appropriate to honor him today with a new and very exciting beginning.

Thank you to my family, friends and fellow Charlotte wedding vendors for your continued love and support.

with love.
