On August 12, 2017, I was able to coordinate Jenny and Billy’s special day. My assistant, Rachel, and I met at Starlight Meadow in Burlington, NC to set up all the decorations and centerpieces. I love to work with Starlight, the staff is always so prepared and helpful! We, later, met the bridal party at Blessed Sacrament Church, where the ceremony would take place.
I have to say Lindsey and her team at Face Forward are the best of the best for Makeup and Hair Styling! Lindsey corresponded quickly beforehand and her timeline was so precise! She and her team got everyone ready in perfect time. Not to mention the Bride, seven Bridesmaids, and the Mothers all looked gorgeous even after a humid August wedding! I cannot wait to work with Face Forward again!
This was my first time coordinating a Catholic Wedding! I enjoyed getting to experience a new type of ceremony. Jenny and Billy decided not to have a complete mass but the ceremony still lasted about an hour. It was interesting to see the bridesmaids and groomsmen sitting during most of the ceremony. Everything went great except for the stomach bug that quickly traveled through the wedding party! We made it work though. I just hate part of the family and close friends were not feeling 100% for their loved ones special day.
After family pictures, everyone headed to Starlight Meadow for the reception. The forecast stated rain and clouds all day but it held off all morning and became sunny just as the bride and groom arrived at the venue! It was a pleasant surprise. Michael Marshall of Best Night Ever DJ & Events started the reception off right by introducing the wedding party into the barn. He is one of our favorite DJs to work with! His music always flows well and he is ready to set the mood for a fun reception. The girls held stunning bouquets and the guys wore charming boutonnieres provided by Blossom Artistry. After dinner, provided by Above & Beyond Catering, a Starlight regular, the Maid of Honor and Best Man gave their toasts. The yummy cupcakes were delivered by Sugarland Bakery in Chapel Hill. Joshua Skeeter brought 3 different flavors to sit around the bride and groom’s small cake.
The entire day was captured by Courtney Saul and Nikki Moore of C-Saul Photography. These ladies are always a joy to work with and Courtney knows the best lighting and tricks to get the perfect romantic shot! Check out the images attached to this post and others posted in The Gallery.
I am so happy Jenny and Billy allowed me to be their Wedding Day Coordinator! I wish you two and your families the absolute best! -Kaitlyn
