This year has flown by! I have been Exceptionally busy the past couple of months preparing for The Times News - Burlington, Forever Bridal Show, an April wedding and my own wedding in May!!
Stop by this Sunday April 9th at Holly Hill Mall in Burlington, NC and check out some local vendors, sample some food, and watch a bridal show! We will be there from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Exceptional Events is offering a chance to win 25% off a total wedding planning package!!
Stay tuned for posts from Jinna & Blake's Wedding, April 22nd and My Wedding in May!
We have officially partnered with Xedo, an online Tuxedo Rental Company! I am so happy to add this to my list of services!
Xedo provides tuxedo rentals all over the country. It offers guaranteed fit of the finest fabrics with perfect color coordination.
It is really easy. Come set up a FREE meeting with Exceptional Events and we will help you get your Xedo account started, show you all your options and how to use the website, measure you or your man, your groomsmen, and order! The rentals will be shipped to YOUR door 2 weeks before your event! It's FREE shipping on all orders. Plus, if you rent 5 or more tuxedos you get the groom's tux for FREE! All you have to do is "Wear it, Love it, Return it" with Fedex (which is automatically coming back to your house to pick up the rentals the Monday after your event).
You and your bridal party never have to step foot in a Tuxedo Shop again! You can even do all of it from home. Contact Exceptional Events at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will gladly send you the link and mail you some swatch samples, a pamphlet, and measuring tape! Or, I can meet you and take care of everything - for FREE!
The best part - Xedo is not only for weddings. It is for other formal events too, such as, prom, anniversary, etc!
I am so excited about 2016! We ended 2015 with a section in The Knot Magazine called "New & Noteworthy." I hope this brings us lots of business plus our new storefront on theknot.com as a Featured vendor.
Exceptional Events is starting the new year with a promotion of 10% of all packages if a client books with us by January 31st.
My goal this year is to continue my education as a wedding planner and hopefully have more clients than last year!
Yesterday, I helped coordinate a wedding for Jon & Pearce at Starlight Meadow. It was hot but the weather was beautiful! Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and everything ran so smoothly! I was very pleased.
I had assistance since I am a little over 8 months pregnant. Katie did an awesome job and was willing to help with anything I asked of her.
The venue, Starlight Meadow, was perfect for the couple's simple, rustic wedding.
The beautiful flowers and ferns were provided by Russell Meadows.
The tasty butter-cream cake was provided Main Street Cake Shoppe.
The awesome photography was taken by Liz Grogan Photography and her team. I will post her pictures later once I receive them.
The yummy food was provided by Above & Beyond Catering.
Lastly, the high quality DJ services were provided by Mitch Wheeler at Triad DJs and Events.
I hope I can work with this team again soon! Everyone was very professional and it made everything run smoothly.
Today, I received my stickers from Atlantic Coast Screen Printing by Brian Harris. I recently bought turquoise buckets to transport decorations and such to and from events and I wanted something to put on them so people knew they belonged to me. These stickers worked perfect, look great, and were so easy to put on! Plus, he made them in less than a weeks time.
If you would like to contact Brian for stickers or screen printing, his website is www.atlanticcoastscreenprinting.com and phone number is 910-200-0818
Our logo was created by the Graphic Design Artist, Channing Dixon! I wanted something curly and handwritten. She did amazing! She sent me versions in white, black, and teal. I definitely recommend her for any graphic needs!
