The Southern gal behind the Bride Room, Charlotte Poling, wanted to throw a party, so she gathered lots of her favorite folks…And Emily O. Holmes Paper got to play along! It was a dreamy night from the chic runway show right down to the fun bubbly bar…all with the Cordelle as a gorgeous backdrop!
We loved working with Charlotte (and her insanely beautiful wedding gowns!) She is fun, so sweet, and down to earth. We were inspired by the way she strives to put family first and how she curates her shop with such great taste!
One of the owners of The Cordelle , Leigh Watson, helped host the party. She has a striking look and personality! She and her twin, Chandra Watson, along with Nealy Glenn own the space. The Cordelle is simply AMAZING – charming, lovely, open and modern with a southern flair. If you need a venue space, definitely check it out! But reserve quickly because it is booking up fast for 2015! The bridal runway show was open to anyone – so many fun people attended…brides, event planners, stylists, and photographers.
We’re excited anytime we get to work with the ladies at Big Events and this time was no exception. Martha Greenwood and her team designed a modern yet warm aesthetic and brought lots of their one-of-a-kind rental pieces to the space. You can now find amazing rentals on their website! Big Events is a wedding and event company – I highly recommend their services. They are the kind of folks that are (very!) on top of it but at the same time warm and so much fun, like you want to go sit in their kitchen and chat for hours. Great style, great energy, great team.
There were delectable treats to snack on while guests oohed and aahed over the bridal runway show. My favorite was the bubbly bar featuring The Bang Candy Company syrups – Hibiscus Orange Blossom Ginger & Peach Basil Nectar & Lavender Mint (all delicious!) Passed apps were created by Chef’s Market and tasty sweets by Frosted Affair.
Emily O. Holmes Custom Paper Lovelies did the programs, bar signs, hashtag cards, and “hello love” stationery gift in the goodie bag. We went classic with all black & white, but brought in the trendy hand-lettering look for an element of fun.
There was amazing lighting by Bright Events Productions and beautiful make-up by Katie Russo. You can find all the other vendors below! They’re great to keep in mind if you’re planning to get hitched or throw a party anytime soon…
This night was a smash hit! We want to give a big thank you to The Bride Room, Big Events and The Cordelle…and for letting EOH be a part! (You can find more photos on the #funandfashion hashtag.)
